Fuckin' world record in a cheap sonic costume that looks like the most uncomfortable thing ever.
while we're talking about pronoun stuff: my delightful friend @Mous has a bunch of real good nametag buttons in his shop that you can write your own name onto! big and visible, great for video calls (or conventions, whenever those happen again). in five fun fruit flavors PLUS a write-your-own option! https://www.nngenderfluid.com/shop/pronoun-name-badge?category=Pronouns
Trying to watch the Nier: Automato run and wishing they'd turn down the game audio.
My comic from The Nib's Drugs issue is now online! I wrote about opioid addiction in PA and the crossover it has with the LGBTQ community.
I'm forever thankful to the friends that I have that live there for letting me use their quotes in this. It's a rough comic, but there really isn't a lighter way to talk about this issue.
On the plus side, I'm hoping to get this sent off to the fab by the end of the month. We'll see if it happens or not, but I've gotten past most of the roadblocks in making this so, fingers crossed!
Thinking about putting a hash of the source file on the board. Absolutely no way to verify that's actually what was used, but in non-bad-actor cases it'd let you be sure which version you sent out.
A shame there's no standard for the fab-house auto-inserting it so the hash would actually verify without having to make a different copy of the file with the hash on it just for manufacturing.
Finally some GOOD FOOD. Two amazing dresses, one with some great platforms too, the neon yellow on black matches the bot and is a great color scheme, the hats are fantastic, and they have a CUSTOM MADE ELECTRIC VIOLIN
8/10. Fuck yeah, this is great.
When you're trying to label pins in a compact manner but are basically reduced to doing pixel art.

i get that it's like a late stage capitalism thing in general, but there's gotta be a fancy economics term for "make a service progressively shittier and shittier but keep users convinced that it's extremely important they keep using it"
Basically I'll have parallel SPI connections for the GPIO header + controller, maybe put some of the GPIO of the port controller onto the header, too. Will see, have to fuck around. PD 75W+ may be done through the header too. All stuff to figure out as I work on it.
Did a bunch of other posts on Twitter I forgot to crosspost, but that's okay because: NEW PLAN! (Re)discovered the UPD350B aaaaaand yep, it uses SPI, does PD 3.0 comms, has GPIO, it's pretty much fantastic as far as USB-C port controllers go. (Which, you know, could be better, could be worse.)
So, like, I dunno.
1x CAN bus
1x DRP USB-C with Power Delivery + Accessory support
1x CAN bus
1x DRP USB-C only
1x GPIO/SPI Expansion Header w/Clock source
2x CAN bus
1x UFP USB-C
1x GPIO/SPI etc
But another big choice is I've realized I could probably power the system via the USB port, too, using the 20V/5A standard. PCIe connectors are (kinda) rated to 75W which would be enough. For that I'd have to use *both* the CAN/I²C *and* the expansion header GPIO lines.
Currently there's an 8 pin connector that has two CAN buses plus power and ground. But I'm probably gonna have to drop one if I want the USB port to have dual-role functionality since it shares pins with the I²C bus I'd need for the USB controller chip.
Alternatively I could maybe use a microcontroller as a protocol converter but then the backpack expansion header would have to go away. That'd free up some space but I'm not sure it'd all still fit since it's not an integrated solution.
