Hello! I’ve been meaning to move here from mastodon.social for a while, my handle was @drewcassidy. I’m a college student studying electrical engineering at UC Irvine, and I’m interested in spaceflight, hobby electronics, KSP modding, and 3D printing, among other things.

Fuck yeah, somehow got pyOCD working with CLion

Theres something kinda cursed about editing HTML inside a compiled ARM binary

Mobile YouTube is such a mind bogglingly bad experience. It’s like someone went out of their way to make the worst interface possible

We need to increase global citrus production by 30 million fold to meet energy demand

Today’s activity: estimating the total power output of US lemon production if you used them for lemon batteries (about 20kW)

Going to put this away and work on the slightly less frusturating memory issue

OK GOT HOME AND TESTED THE VOLTAGE AND ITS 3.3V LIKE IT SHOULD BE WHICH MEANS MY PROBLEM IS INTERMITTENT GDI

I even got zener diodes when the LM317 failed and didnt install them because I assumed the fixed-voltage ones would be better. but no

I’m just stuck now, worrying about things I cant even test, I cant move further. I won’t be able to focus in my class in an hour. All because I DON’T KNOW WHY THIS FUCKING VOLTAGE REGULATOR FAILED

Honestly the worst feeling is “I have a problem to solve but have to wait to do so”.

Why did it fail! It’s not even the same type of chip as the last one to fail!

Another voltage regulator failed, killing another oshchip. I want to cry

Its still only supported by like 5 websites but hey

I bought this Yubikey like 5 years ago and its finally useful with my primary browser

Ok I’m getting some fucking 26AWG hookup wire I’m tired of making boards with this thick stuff and ripping apart old cables

Finally got filament change working in Cura 4. For some reason the pause was changing to absolute extrusion afterwards

If you are employed by the National Science Foundation then everything you do for them is NSF Work.

I mean. Hopefully. 69°C weather sounds terrible (but also nice)
