Just got a new writing contract going! Wooooo! My writing resume expandeth...
Some day I would love to write an article for 2600

The problem with using the new ATtiny chips from Microchip is none of my existing programmers support the new program/debug protocol! Why couldn't they just give a firmware update to the PICKIT 3... :( Now I need to buy some new hardware.

We need more *nix/electronics conventions here in Canada. Crossing the border is becoming more and more infeasible and risky. I certainly won't enter the US with the current policies allowing searching with no probable cause, especially of my laptop and cell phone.

@nHFvi0rBSRGHPJI8ahIo@skippers-bin.com quite the username!

Alright, I've learned my lesson (again)... Never use Ubuntu-based distros, no matter how cool they seem. GCC5 is old.

@mnw For SIP I am just using the built-in Android SIP client, so it integrates with the normal dialer.

@mnw Yeah, I used to use Fedilab when it was free. I just installed Musky and its actually really nice so far! I'm glad there is lots of choice.

Trying out different Mastodon clients for Android and so far none really do it for me. Mammut has the nicest interface but lacks features. Subway Tooter is full featured but has a fairly ugly UI that's hard to use. Ivory looks like it will be good but it's in beta... any suggestions?

@smj very cool, I've found OLED displays to be super nice to look at on projects I've done. Crisp, easy to read, easy on the eyes... that synth will look sexy!

I haven't done 3D modelling in like a decade, but I'm playing around with FreeCAD to design an enclosure and it's slowly coming back to me :)

Doing some browsing on eBay for vintage cartridge games... found a seller in my country that has reasonable prices (for once!). Probably going to grab a few :D

Unlike the mainland China, the Hong Kong Police Force is allowed to purchase weapons and equipments from the United States manufacturers.

This means U.S.-based businesses are making money while HKPF assault the demonstrators using American weapons at the behest of Beijing.

Playing around with an emulated ZX81. There are so many vintage machines I want... but the prices are insane. It's definitely a very different experience from, say, Commodore machines. Having each key also be a keyword is a neat idea.
