Pinned toot

Long ago, I thought I was special, different than everyone else, and I was surrounded by adults who reinforced that thought daily.

Eventually, I realized that I was special, different than everyone else, and so was every other person in the world.

They left out the important bit. We're each special and different and that's what makes us awesome.

I celebrate your special difference, friends, each of you. May it bring you the joy in the coming years that it has brought me getting to know each of you during the last few.

this is my semi-regular yet aperiodic reminder that this place here is a distributed federated version of Callahan's as far as I can tell and that is one of the most bestest things that can be.

Every one of you is precious and wonderful and unique and necessary and deserving of life and love and peace.

Anything your brain does to try to convince you otherwise is a mean trick.

Please try to remember this. Remember it unceasingly.

Good morning.

First pass at a working camera app and driver landed in mobian for the #pinephone in the latest nightly build.

I'm a big fan of repairable devices, but only when a supply of replacement parts is maintained for a reasonable length of time and at a reasonable level of availability.

pine64 is on track to provide the full deal, it seems, and it makes me happy.

if this 10000 mAh battery was any bigger I'd say it was too big to use for this project - as it is it's pushing my buttons

extremely Iron Chef America competitor voice: for this next course, I decided to really embrace the theme of "state of the art" by preparing this deconstructed #soundslab for you. I think you'll find that tonight's secret ingredient, the raspberry pi zero, really shines through. Enjoy.

sundogistan is tempted to announce a new, business friendly tax credit to lure seattle based businesses scared of the head tax to move to sundogistan instead, after which sundogistan will simply nationalize all of them. don't tell anyone.

Completely forgot to tweet this. I recorded a start-to-finish @thepine64 #PinePhone disassembly & reassembly using tools one would already have lying around (Phillips screwdriver and a debit card).

Might have changed my mind - the UPS might get the place of honor, because if I remove this header I can wire it back by hand and get some extra thinness, maybe. I'll play with it.

it also comes with an optional stereo RCA out jack that only needs to be soldered in place if I want it, but I haven't decided if I want the extra ports on a portable yet. like, I've got lots of TRS<->RCA cables anyway. on the other hand, RCA jacks on my walkman, yo.

the DAC board conveniently comes with a nice row of unused gpio breakouts for connecting further hardware, so I think I'll let it have the place of honor atop the pi zero itself, and I'll wire the relevant pins of the other two to the breakouts on the DAC.
