you can obviously do this in a normal pot on the stove too, but the brine is so strong that salt just gets *everywhere*

salt potatoes, lazy version

get a pound of small, smooth potatoes (if you have to cut too much off of them, they'll absorb too much salt)

put them whole into an instant pot with 6c of water and 1c (yes! really!) of salt

low pressure, 1 minute cook time, then let rest sealed for 20 minutes before opening

the strong brine makes water come out rather than pushing it in, you get this really nice creamy fried/baked texture with a potato cooked in water

drench in butter

tip: if you're looking for an unconnected net on a layout (and don't have a quick tool to jump to/highlight it), toggle ratsnest on and off repeatedly

you'll pick up on the changing ratsnest lines way easier than trying to see a single static one hiding somewhere

i'm sure this principle is useful somewhere else too

i fucked up the connector design on my instrument control module board and have to design an interposer, and honestly i'm really kind of in love with how many options for nice connectors i get when i can throw an interposer underneath it. so many things i couldn't use before because they'd take up all the routing space

yeah i totally meant to do that

@be dude "i'm kinda sick of people telling me to just use..." is not an invitation to list well known options and unhelpfully say they "are things".

@spacekookie @doctormo lol i figured i was getting what i deserved for bitching about software ;)

@spacekookie at some point all the UX snobs came to believe customization was bad and they all know better than the users

I blame Google and the opinionated UX culture they inflicted on the world like 10 years ago...

@scanlime yeaaah

we've been slowly pivoting into like, research projects, climate science, stuff like that

but fuck me it could go faster. i'm tired of making things with apps

seriously tired of building the next shiny piece of e-waste some deluded entrepreneur thinks the world needs
