Are there any instances that dont censor any other instances? Kind of annoying that everything isnt actually visible.

I just wanted to say is getting surprisingly good. I really hope they stick around!

So, I *might* be in the job market eventually.

Had an event happen at work that just hard-pegged my bullshitometer pretty hard, almost breaking the faceplate.

If I could jump ship now, I'd want to work in an entry-/mid-level embedded software development *OR* entry-level hardware developer role. I would *consider* mid-level hardware dev. I refuse to call myself senior-level. I just don't have that kind of experience. I am, however, just as comfy writing assembly language as I am Verilog.

I owe a new t-shirt to myself. Any ideas for a cool libre audio related design I could get printed?

One of my resolutions this year is to use lbry.tv exclusively for ambient video/audio while working. Need to get off ! Also, at least automatically rewards you for just using their free and opensource platform! Sounds like a dream but its real!

🤔 ...For people who have a fulltime job and want to create a game from scratch by themselves, how do you have time/energy for it? I've been struggling having enough energy to get things off the ground. I would love to hear your perspectives!

Anyone have a good recommendation for a service/person/tool for transcribing the audio from a youtube video?

Here's a video on using FlatCAM to generate G-code for a CNC. There are some tweaks to perform, but it should get you on your way

FYI If you're prototyping PCBs at home and happen to have a CNC router, you can use FlatCAM to draw them and cut out:

flatcam.org

It's free and #OpenSource software for *nix and Windows

It's continually being maintained with the latest release at the end of December

#HardwareHacking

seems much, much more thumbnaily than before. What happened?

@cypnk A big part of me misses the BBS culture of the early 90s. Not particularly academic but more communal.

Urgent, a real revolution 

@unfa what do you use for sending and receiving on GNU/Linux? I want to try to dump my setting from my -8 and I just learned about -OX (Windows) and SysEx Librarian (Mac)
