covid isolation, negative mental health impacts 

Measuring the ripple and noise from the MDP-P905 with Miniware's own DP212!

Got my USB-C PD trigger PCBs! These will negotiate a PD supply up to 9, 12, 15 or 20V for input to other DC devices. Might buy a TS-100 soldering iron and install one for proper USB-C PD support! Or some other devices.

If you've ever wondered what it sounds like when someone hooks up a button multiplexer and plays pokemon blue on 40 gameboys at once, or even if you haven't, watch this video. youtu.be/L_zhLdVJSgI

I hate it when I'm standing around in a field during a magical meteor shower and then one lands in my hands and then I eat it which causes me to lose my heart.

I was having a crappy day today ... but then I learned Wendy Carlos and Weird Al Yankovic recorded Peter and the Wolf together, *and* it’s downloadable from the Internet Archive:

There’s a disturbing hidden trend amongst the youths of today that you may not be aware of. Many of them are under the misguided impression that it’s necessary to pay various giant corporations hard earned money every single month, to maintain access to a catalogue of movies and TV to view! These sadly misled folks believe that at the whim of a licensing executive, or if they fail to submit their tithings, their access to media can be taken away without warning! This may shock you, but it’s true.

Do your part to combat this worrying trend. Teach Your Local Teens To Torrent (Responsibly)!

Hey, uh, I know my circle on here isn't very music-oriented. But in the isolation I've gotten back into engraving (typesetting) public domain music. If anybody has any particular public domain piece they'd like transcribed into a digital file with MuseScore, I'll do it for free! (provided I can find a scanned score, and it hasn't already been done well). ♻️🆗

Hey Samsung, if the TV OS crashes while it's in standby, it shouldn't restart and turn on. This is basic UX stuff, c'mon.

Smart TVs were a mistake.

Someone on ABC news just said, without a whit of irony, “Be CyberAlert but not CyberAlarmed.”

I’m getting that on a tshirt.
