Hello cathode people, #introductions time!
This is my technology-oriented account. Just one side of me.
I work as a hardware engineer and teacher living in Madrid. I'm committed to the free culture philosophy, supporting FLOSS and FreeHardware. In my spare time I develop things and collaborate with people. I like geek stuff. Also a game developer wannabe.
Today I have been preparing the website with hugo
I have taken a base theme and I have been modifying it. It has been a lot of work. I have added:
And best of all, I have no idea how I got all that to work.
I still have: A lot of CSS work to do.
Thoughts about hugo (website builder)
I like hugo, but I am not able to understand why the features it is capable of, depend directly on the theme. Same with the configuration.
I think it would be easier for everyone, if the hugo engine determined minimum capabilities and common configuration options. And that all themes are built around this. It would be a more compact and complete common documentation, and easier to understand and implement.
There are cool themes that are barely documented and that makes them unusable. Changing the theme of a website once customized is complex because the configuration of a theme is not valid for another... I can't test several themes on the same content to see which one fits better with the aesthetics I'm looking for, without spending an hour manually configuring each theme. And that is a big usability problem.
I hope the developers think about this and change it in the next major version.
Looking for cable assembly factory.
For a work project, I am looking for a factory that performs cable assembly to order. The factory I have worked with previously has closed, and I can't find another one that wants to accept this order because of "small quantities".
I need the assembly of different types of cables, from one conductor to fifty conductors, from 16AWG to 24AWG. Different types of connectors/terminals. A total of 2300 cables.
Does anyone know of one where I can request a quote? It doesn't matter if it is an international order. Thank you. Boosts welcome.
For my first contact with SLA printing, I have learned several things:
Yesterday I was thinking about a project that will need separate digital and analog supplies, and I found among a lot of other literature this article that I thought was pretty good:
From the creators of "three op-amps to light an LED" comes "I light another LED with the spare op-amp".
I'm having a great time playing with op amps and learning a bit more about analog electronics.
I designed a simpler, less precise little circuit today that basically does the same thing as its big sibling.
I have been testing platformio cli and have been pleasantly surprised. They seem to have support for many microcontrollers and it works quite well. I will give it a try as a development environment for some project.
Thanks @s0 for showing it to me.
I am in the dichotomy of using the classic but NRND ATmega328P, or switching to the new ATmega4809.
I know the ATmega328P very well, but I can't switch to the new ATmega328PB due to lack of official support, so I'm worried that I'm condemning the life span of whatever I do.
On the other hand, the ATmega4809 I neither know it nor have how to program it, and I have the impression that there is not much intention to give it a great support.
What are you using in new developments (or what would you use if these chips were available).
It is for simple developments where an 8-bit microcontroller is ideal.
Explanation of vote and RT is greatly appreciated!
