So I recently got a few thousand boards printed up for my protoboard design. Tested them on a few circuits and im amazed how well they work. I'm writing the datasheet now and we will begin selling on digikey, mouser, and many other big names soon.

In the meantime any EE people out there want a free board? We are going to hand out a few hundred for free to get people interested.

Here are some past posts I made about it for some background info. I've also attached an image of the final boards.

To help some of the newcomers make connections: name 5-7 things that interest as tags so they are searchable. Then boost this post or repeat its instructions so others know to do the same. Add to the post.

So I got the raw 3d MRI source files from the hospital. Then I got the software needed to view the MRI in 3d. It let me rotate, slice, and even colorize the images. So **I** generated these images from the raw MRI. It shows my kidney, heart, and skeleton from 4 different angles fully colorized. How cool is that!

I also included some of just the heart and kidneys on its own from the same scan.

Thing i love about making soup is you can add couscous to it and if you add enough it soaks up all the liquid and makes amazing couscous dish too. So versatile

Beware of the phishing attacks. I nearly fell for this one.

The only thing that saved my bacon is that I should already be logged in! Then I noticed the funny-looking domain name.

I have started working on my ROES SWR meter again. Hope to finish the v2 of the project in the next week and get some PCBs printed.

This has been int he making a long time now. Always wanted a super high-tech SWR meter.

Yea I just double checked to make sure my memory was correct, it was... links represent voting pair agreement. when two people vote the same they get a link, the more they vote the same the thicker the link. This apparently is then organized with a graph drawing algorithm, likely force-directed by the looks of it.

Here is the original video it comes from:


==The Mage's Tower==

In misty lands that the pale moonlight brings,
There stands a tavern where it shines and it sings.
In this warm place eternal laughter does flow;
with a smile for each of the winds that will blow.

To seek this land out less must be so much more,
then set yourself free to drift to nightโ€™s shore.
The familiar road finds unfamiliar friends door,
filled with mirth, merriment, magick, and lore.

When ready to pass open wide wooden gate,
a cool wind then blows that shows one their fate.
The room there well lit by passionโ€™s great fire,
itโ€™s smoke will hang thick from our loveโ€™s own desire.

There in the sky dances god borealis,
and there on the bar sits the bust of the Pallas.
But never there seen is the raven of yore,
for only the wise can be king evermore.

There in the corner stands a gargoyleโ€™s head,
where out of itโ€™s mouth flows hot earthen lead.
Into a dirt cup itโ€™s flow does seek end,
but as shining gold it does then transcend.

The food and the drink shared to all those around,
Not one to the other was any one bound.
With plates of clear manna that did sparkle white,
and cups of ambrosia kept full through the night.

Here pixieโ€™s dust used in shakers to fill,
and surely dragon tails do remain in there still.
For what fool would eat from a dragonโ€™s great tail,
only to have all of their passions fail.

Moonโ€™s magick glow fills the room well dispersed,
While timeโ€™s wanting path remains untraversed.
The moments found here are well unrehearsed;
The truth is abound, not found interspersed.

In this place here exists just the one,
Embrace silver moon, to become golden sun.
Odal reunites ancient gods of the night,
to let us be one, so we shine with their light.

Day 16 in quarantine....

Dough, an ingredient, a bread ingredient.

Ray, a graphical vector

Me, a group, a Methyl group

Far, a distance relative

Sow, a thing botanists do

La, is short for Lagrange point

T, we use it to mean time

and that will bring us back to dough dough dough....

I just wanted to publicly thank @khird for always being so quick with reporting SPAM when new accounts show up on our server. He is, by far, one of the biggest contributors to help me identify and get rid of spam before others need to see it.

Thanks for all your help!

Trying to write a subinterpreter-compatible, subclassable Python C extension type that stores data on the class itself.

Thoughts on the day...

So it would seem that there is a huge push to get girls/women/ladies/female persons into STEM and programming specifically. There are people working on "scholarships" or "free tickets to cons" and such for them as underrepresented class of persons. I am wondering the actual specific reasons? Is it because we have an actual shortage of programming persons? Or because this class of persons desires to be in programming, but is somehow being shut out? There doesn't necessarily seem to be lack for this class of persons in other STEM fields. Could it also be due to the fact that this class of persons is traditionally paid less than their boy/man/dude/male person counterpart performing the same job as an attempt to lower the cost to businesses employing such? I am curious of the pushes that are being done, because I never trust the motivation given for anything that affects so many aspects of something.

Without turning this into an essay, I want to raise a few more questions?
Does the industry gain anything in the field from diversity itself? Does a programming team benefit from having a person of a specific gender, race, religion, national origin <insert the rest of the eoe protected classes> from the fact that they are in fact a member of that class.
Should the industry and its players change itself, (customs, culture, mores, language, and so on) to allow for such integration, or would the marriage of such new culture to an existing culture naturally change it organically?
Is this done in other industries where they are made up lacking a certain class of person and strong encouragement, support etc. is made to interest, entice, or otherwise bring members of that lacking class into it?


I'm getting back into my IoT project that I had to put on hold for a year... its rather far along.. anyway was thinking of you, you will be seeing some IoT posts out of me soon I bet :)

Ain't that the god damn truth... I'm willing to bet very few of you are coming out of this any better than you went in... prove me wrong!

I will be hosting a get together at my house this evening for anyone who wants to join. We will be discussing the importance of quarantine and how best to adhere to the policies. Free booze!

To my fridge's door alarm: I really dont need this kind of judgement right now!
