I've an ever growing collection of snippets and plenty of deep manual dives by now and I want to say: This software, that is probably powering most of the streaming and video editing internet industry, is _heavily underrated_. (beko.famkos.net/t/1iaM)

Anyone looking to add Fediverse (Mastodon, Pixelfed, et al.) icons to Twenty Twenty-One’s footer menu, the theme comes with two filter hooks that make this sort of thing really easy. github.com/janboddez/add-fediv

If you're in the #Houston area, the Houston Computer Museum is liquidating its entire collection, mostly pre-2000 machines: facebook.com/marketplace/item/ Selected images of available items attached. #retrocomputing

I'm disassembling the case and plastics of the #olivetti M290. Here you can see the internal chassis before and after a bath in mild acid to dissolve rust. Tomorrow I'll start applying a rust converter and wash the plastic parts. I already cleaned the #backplane up. #retrocomputing #repair

Can't get enough of Diaspora: Shattered Armistice (on Linux PC). Of course with my DIY 😃 And while we're at it we demonstrate arwes.dev/ – because nobody said that a sci-fi interface made with & can not be used as stream overlay too 👍

This is a Work In Progress and a DEMO.

Made to learn some React, get some freakin cool UI _and_ save me bucks on a stream overlay 😀

Flea market today, found a few books of interest, also this #sidewinder #gamepad with DB15/USB connection and inside, surprisingly, a copy of #starwars #xwing vs #tiefighter .

It's amazing how much better your day becomes when you surround yourself with positive things and content :)

I have a question, for those of you who do #ElectronicDesign:

How do you solve the power supply part in assemblies that are powered from a lipo or li-ion to output 3.3v? Why?

The typical setup is usually charger, buck-boost regulator and preferably a bms.
However, I can't find regulators in easy to mount packages (few leads and no reflow needed), for a current between 200mA and 500mA.

Finding something with 6-8 pins, in SOT, SOIC or SOP packages would be great.
Obviously, if it already incorporated the charger it would be absolutely wonderful, or some method of battery protection, such as over-discharge.

All this makes me think, that in an era where mobile devices, with lithium batteries are imposed, and more and more devices run at 3.3v with the rise of ARM microcontrollers, it is still difficult a compact and simple power solution.

So much so, that what I usually see are buck-only regulators, or LDOs in commercial and DIY products. But it seems like a shitty solution to me.

Yay got my 2nd jab today. A week earlier than expected 💉💉 (beko.famkos.net/t/1ha2)

Diaspora: Shattered Armistice (on Linux PC)

Still awesome today: diaspora.hard-light.net/

Seems to work nice with my DIY on PC too.

Warning: This may fuel a desire to rewatch the BSG series again :D

Sadly I got quite some framedrops due to recording (and probably multihead too). It works way better without all the cameras but I think it's enough to get a good impression. Botched emergency landing included xD

Video is also on PeerTube tube.tchncs.de/videos/watch/c6 of course.

"Dass diese Nutzer auf Linux setzen, liegt vor allem daran, dass Microsoft für die Verwendung seiner Software extrem hohe Lizenzgebühren verlangt – dann allerdings mit Support zur Seite steht, wenn es mal irgendwo hakt."

Wer kennt es nicht. Man hat ein Problem mit seinem Computer, ruft bei Microsoft an und die schicken einen Techniker, der das Problem behebt.

Bei Freier Software hab ich tatsächlich erlebt, dass in Stunden das Problem behoben wurde und eine neue Version veröffentlicht.

Visited my birth-town in FlightGear on the last weekend. What a time to be alive 😀 (beko.famkos.net/p/1hBZ)
