pet health - 

my dog's vet doesn't want to refill her meds more, and would rather talk "next steps" which afaict is surgery

fucks sake she's 14. she probably won't be around much longer anyway. and this would be a very hard surgery and recovery. I am not about to make her spend the rest of her life in basically medical torture

the medications are working! please don't make this a huge hassle I don't want to have to go vet shopping for someone who isn't a surgery pusher.

lol i think the only code i got in was some improvements to the HPGL generator for people plotting schematics on literal pen plotters

I'm also trying to ponder ways of adding four-layer and maybe even flex pcb to those home fab capabilities. bc i'm a big dummy.

people who get sanctimonious about infosec best practices as moral imperatives make me want to write everything in c with minimal bounds checking and run it as root

stop sucking yourselves off, infosec ppl

software bs 

it's so fucking easy. they think they're clever checking the sha256 sum on their license manager before calling it

c'mon, the least they could do is have it send back a signed response, it literally just answers with a license type ID in the return code

i really want a programmable smps controller

give me a little microcontroller with some adcs, dacs, comparators, timers, configurable logic blocks, an integrated LDO that can tolerate at least 16V, and some uncommitted 1-3Aish output drivers that can be connected to the configurable logic (as direct outputs for lower current, or gate drivers)

conspiracy theory: some of the nicer chips are actually this with a mask rom and everyone agreed not to tell us

my favorite kind of firmware to implement by far is firmware that needs ascii art comments

ban developers having nice things

I'm so tired of needing the very latest hardware and software to use anything bc devs test all their work on the computer equivalent of a supercar and think it's ok to demand we use it on one

public transit systems never will - and aren't supposed to - make money or break even

fares are a holdover of a culture of "properness" and disproportionately affect disadvantaged people

fareless systems see significant increases in use, which directly translates to less use of cars and healthier cities
