Latest iteration of @technomancy 's Atreus keyboard.

The plates are made of steel, and the keycaps are made of steel and brass.

Assembled and working Ploopy. Next up: fiddling with qmk to move the buttons around

My Ploopy Mini trackball kit just showed up: fun project for the weekend

Home-made semiconductor fabrication techniques are getting more sophisticated. From the hacker who put 6 transistors on a chip in an amplifier configuration, behold, one thousand two hundred transistors.

(Admittedly, not configured as anything in particular yet, but the work is getting there. He's already half-way to an Intel 4004. I'm willing to bet that you can make a viable CPU with 1200 transistors if it used a bit-serial micro-architecture.)

What is the best Mastodon server/instance for a business focused on radical sustainability, climate justice, permacomputing, etc.? I know some instances don't want brand accounts, only actual humans.

Well, that was interesting: sitting in my home office and BANG! I watched one of my royal palms partially explode from a lightning strike. About 60' (20 meters) away. I think it also killed my weather sensor array.

batch mode compilers are basically wholly an end result of the capitalist mindset. if we're looking forward (or backwards) to a time when to use a computer and to program a computer are identical operations, there's no advantage - and a colossal disadvantage - to having source compiled once, in advance, and the result preserved in aspic

even - maybe especially! - in small computers

the use of "not now" as a general text field for buttons that used to say "cancel" or "dismiss" is some serious psychological warfare

These magnetic keyboard switches are pretty neat! hackaday.com/2021/08/02/mag-le

The fact that you can tune the force needed by changing the distance between magnets makes me wonder if I should try the same on my electro-sax keys...

tbh this call for eugen to step down isn't like going to be much. we need to stop relying on products/projects and move to make things lean on the protocol

this is gargron's response to my criticism for intentionally removing local and federated timelines from the mobile app

he used the mastodon account to hide behind and delete @avie 's comment and close all further discussion on it

despicable.

Hi!

Quickdocs, a valuable resource for preventing to get lost in the
plethora of Common lisp libraries has back online.

Thank you to Fukamaki for reviving this project (and also for all
their libraries :-D).

Bye!

ICYMI, please read my article about the need for low-carbon and #sustainable #computing and the path towards zero-carbon computing.

tld;dr: We need to drastically limit the growth in emissions from computing, or by 2040 emissions from computing alone will be close to half the emissions level acceptable to keep global warming below 2°C.

And it is possible to do this.
