It occurs to me that a bunch of people I know online will be at EMF and it would be nice to have a pint with them.

Can this be arranged?

Now. I am a 6'7" trans woman and thus lots of people recognise me, but I have a shit memory for names and faces. I think I am not alone in that.

The sight of a bunch of geeks all with large name badges will be funny.

@JennyList I also have a terrible memory for people, but happy to arrange for a pint.

Maybe we need to make a beer list ?

I was sharing this because of the lovely name for this tool, when I spotted the dimensions. I know what they mean but it would be funny if it fits in a matchbox

I guess for next year I’m going to have to submit a talk to get a day pass? 🤔

What’s the least dull topic? “Bending MicroPython to my whims”, or “writing chip drivers in Python against my better judgement”?

Extelec,
@Extelec@mstdn.social avatar

@gadgetoid how about reasons not to write drivers in python.

I observe, yet again, that the tea time dishes are not washing themselves. Bugger!

@NormanDunbar Yep its weird, up until I moved out of my parents my dishes and cups washed themselves, This house just hasn't got the message, in over 30 years.

@kaybee335 I can honestly say I never got one working, I had a set, and I saw them working, but me, no... :)

Extelec,
@Extelec@mstdn.social avatar

@kaybee335 I always carried a pair of terminators, first call was the mid point, then binary chop from there, but as you say it always required crawling under every table in the premises.

One sure-fire way of ensuring an RJ45 is correctly terminated, is to forget the strain relief boot.

I need to stop thinking about my little personal coding projects a potentially useful and see them as they truly are: the modern equivalent of building ships-in-a-bottle.

@grueproof so with smt and flexible PCBs why not put them in a bottle.
