I'm surprised this does not seem to exist as a product: a shunt jumper with a push button...

Blokkeer de A12!(6) Kom aanstaande zaterdag, 28 januari, naar Den Haag, neem deel aan die blokkade! En ook als je daartoe zelf geen kans ziet: help mee de volgens de staat dus als opruiing beschouwde oproep om te blokkeren verder te verspreiden. Blokkade is noodzaak! Opruiing is noodzaak! En die arrestanten moeten natuurlijk ogenblikkelijk vrij en van iedere strafvervolging worden vrijgesteld.

A milestone - KiCanvas's schematic viewer now supports selecting symbols and viewing their information. 🎉

It's kind of funny, since I'd already had this working in the proof of concept (& the version on my blog), but this is a completely re-built viewer. It's much faster, much smoother, and much more robust.

“Imagine if you use a phone for twice as long…that means you only have to produce half the amount of phones and you have half the amount of waste”. 🌍 💚 #Fairphone Founder, @basvanabel@twitter.com, spoke to the team at @WhatDesignCanDo@twitter.com: youtu.be/LYhQji59dGY

Avid fan of the new MicroChip Attiny here:
the @Raspberry_Pi #RP2040 is a surprising nifty/fun/powerful/versatile/embeddable/lovable processor.
The only thing I miss is a few bytes of eeprom (eg. for serial nr or encryption keys).
And that datasheet... It is humanly readable!!!
This is going to be a fun weekend. ☺️

#quotes

"Dystopia” isn’t when things go wrong. Assuming nothing will go wrong doesn’t make you an optimist, it makes you an asshole. A dangerous asshole. Assuming nothing will go wrong is why they didn’t put enough lifeboats on the Titanic. Dystopia isn’t where things go wrong. Dystopia is when things go wrong, and nothing can be done about it"

- Cory Doctorow @pluralistic

I just invented an amazing system for creating designs, art, and written language -- and the best part is that ANYONE can use it! I call it "a human being with decent pay at a full time job." You should try one today! #AI #tech
