Partway done assembling my workbench in the new study. It’s gonna be so nice not having it crammed in the bedroom :blobcat_nwn:

Afternoon: pleasant.
Hair: frazzled.
Heart: go zoom.
Tea: steeping.

End of day five of cable-making and boy my hands are sore.

Tonight I’ve replaced the TinyPICO ESP32 module with a WT32-ETH1 ESP32 module which has 100Mb Ethernet onboard! So I can run the 4 strings of LEDs pixel-for-pixel via much more reliable Ethernet DMX control.

So I tried out @Iridaceae’s fake septum piercing and it looks pretty cute, maybe I’ll get one and wear it more often?

Took me a while but I stitched my fennec cross-stitch by @Iridaceae onto my bag tonight! Last night I spent hours first unpicking the branding that was in the way.

Today’s project: a TinyPICO ESP32 board box with 4 outputs of wirelessly-controlled pixel string. I’m missing one GX16-4 panel connector though.

Look at the super cute cross-stitch fennec @Iridaceae made for mee!!! Based on a sketch by Bev Johnson. Gonna stitch it onto my backpack soon.

Making some progress on my lighting pelican case.
Ubiquiti EdgeRouter X, 24V1A Passive POE supply, and UniFi AP-AC-LR all in their approximate places. (Edgerouter is under the POE supply but might be tipped up vertical.)
The PSU in the bottom left is a recycled 15V 1.5A one that will be used for the 4-universe DMX node (DMXKing Pro DIN), which will fit in the gap to its right.
The foam segments hold the legs for the upper panel with connectors (see prev toot).

Thinking about her luscious curves…, they just don’t make ‘em the same these days…

I couldn’t resist saving one of the primary transformers though

Vale to this pair of Telex amplifiers so old that they came with the full schematic attached to the inside of the cover :blobcat_oh:

iBook G3 spotted packed away in a cupboard at my parents’. This was one of my early computers, I used it when I was 10-12
