food, meat, Wolfenoot dinner 

Made dinner for Wolfenoot tonight!

Roasted chimken, pan-cooked broccoli, thick-n-creamy mac'n'cheese with parmesan added, and raisin cinnamon cookies!

Trying to figure out the best way to handle the one LVDS signal (an M-LVDS master clock for the system) but also I'm violating like three different design best-practices right now and if I try to move the IC to the backside to eliminate the issues the 12V trace gets in the way.

I don't know, I feel like I'm both over and under thinking this CAN stuff. Overthinking because it's just a bonus add-on, underthinking because I'm pretty sure this could be done better.

Been working on this again, while verifying part availability it turned out the 5V SMPS IC I was using is discontinued.

You can see in the older image how it changed because of that. Also, turns out you need pretty big inductors when your max load is much higher than your min load, and been beefing up traces/vias for higher current to support USB-C DRP.

Just wrote up how I made corn on the cob tonight, more steps than I realized.

Tonight, on The Help Action, if you were watching the stream *and* the chat, you know what's going on. If you weren't, I don't know what to say.

So weird discovery: these taste better without chocolate chips. I think it's the whole wheat flour combined with the 60% cacao chocolate leaves it okay but not great. OTOH, based on the last time I made them, they're absolutely delicious if you dunk them in milk, but I ran out yesterday.

Okay so like, Windows 10 taskbar has room for two lines of text in each item because of how large the icons are, why does it not make use of it??? Show me the song title!

I'm calling it here, this is totally where phones are going.

A quick piece of fan art I did during the stream on Wednesday.

Glass decided to try some diplomacy. It didn't *not* work...

... trying to figure out if there's a way to trim a PWM signal based on an op-amp comparing a buck-boost circuit's output to a reference voltage and I think the fact that I can trigger an interrupt in the PWM's timer from the analog comparator might work but I'm not entirely sure that's enough unless I can get the PWM timer to also reset.

Might have to do some of this in software rather than sleep walking hardware...

I have 20 slides so far. With that many I only have to spend 2 minutes 45 seconds per slide to fill my allotted time. I'm not done making slides. I think I'll be okay.
