I feel so insignificant sometimes.

Dream big. Embrace every thought that excites you. Experience the joy you feel as you replay it over and over again.

Branch Engineering is a Youtube channel that is creating some amazing content in regards to how modern technology and devices work. The animation is almost lifelike and even if you have no understanding of engineering, the sheer brilliance of the presentation is worth the price of admission. (uh free... lol) 🤓🥚

These are the moments when I love reading back through the posts here. Seeing how far we've come. Revisiting hidden answers that were found in plain view.

I feel surrounded by failure. I'm rowing so hard and getting nowhere. So I give up. I yield. I go where the story takes me.

I have never fit in anywhere. Never felt truly welcome or home. Not once in my life. Even in crowds, I feel both invisible and obtrusively obvious. Weird huh?

Tim Pierce breaks down some of Mateus Asato's magic. Even if you aren't a musician, you can easily fall in love with Tim's approach to this stuff. Being a master session player, his humility and energy is addicting.  #happyPlace

Are you desperately seeking or patiently seeking?

No answer is sometimes good enough.

Patience is a breath and a rhythm change.

Happy Birthday to me... 29 again! Yay 🎉🥳🌮🥰🍰

My first gift to me.. from me... -> my new prototyping boards arrived and I'm so excited to see them in action.

The PCBs were designed to fit perfectly into the included Takachi case... add some premium components and you have the affordable prototyping kit you buy when you want a professional looking build.

Perfect for one-offs and non-production ideas... for less than twenty bucks. Awesome.

There isn't much on the digital shelves and definitely nothing on Amazon Prime. Not sure where to market these yet but I'm working on a plan :-)

The new boards arrived and my first assembled unit is working! I can't remember ever being so excited about a power switch. lol

Chip shortages and market gouging forced me back to the drawing board (literately) - So after a month of prototyping and lots of swearing... here's the new version of my POS Print Appliance. Not a super fun project but it works well. (I love the black PCB :-)

Since we can't get the previous hardware (and I'm running low on inventory) I had to get creative and cobble together several easy to find through-hole components around an ESP32 and write a firmware in C++ instead of Perl on Linux. Ouch.

Our spec calls for a TLS secured webserver, USB host control, OLED display and ESC/POS print drivers. Not to mention the Wifi stack. All on bare metal with a tiny amount of flash and ram. My head hurts. 

Here's some shots of the process (it's not pretty) but the production units will be! Yay!! 🤞😬👊

"Flow Control" the video. I'm sure you'll agree, the silhouette dancing in the pink matrix train tunnel just makes it extra classy. 😘😂

p.s... 4k - full screen and the tunnels feel like a ride :-)

He makes working, multi-layer silicon chips in his garage. Sam's understanding of this stuff is mind blowing. I'm just waiting for him to break out the DeLorean.
