Discovering I did not in fact have a can opener, I subjected this can to what I can only describe as the “Jaws Henchman Treatment”

Hey, come hang out on Jitsi with me and Princess the 3D printer!

Bare metal UXN running on the PI4 hardware!

For some reason this refused to work with -O2 optimizations, but works fine on -O1. Probably need to do some assembly archeology to find what is going on.

Hm I wonder how hard it is to proxy/cache mjpegstreamer. I want to make a publicly-viewable stream of the webcam of Princess...

Whole lotta cables for a "wireless" setup, but the embroidery machines only provide power to the USB when they're turned on, so I power the Pi's separately.

(Also it's kinda dark behind the embroidery machines where these live now, sorry.)

I should note, the holes in the standoffs are for threaded inserts, and then I'm gluing regular nuts into the sides of the handles (thinner than threaded inserts)

Princess is going, I've mopped & vacuumed the floors, and it's tea time ☕️

yeah I gave up on freecad and used fusion because I couldn't get freecad to extrude and the text guides weren't helping much.

Designed a tray with handle to store/carry my programmable load in, rather than just the simple standoffs it comes with. It shouldn't negatively impact the cooling too much I hope, as it's mainly through the large phase-change heatsink and fans.

As a native Hawaiian, Reservation Dogs is the best #INDIGENOUS representation of our actual lives on screen, ever. Also, this all-indigenous written is the best and funniest thing I've seen in years, PERIOD. 'Can I be Mr. Camouflage?' in the Hot Cheetohs heist had me rolling

Gonna give FreeCAD a go for modelling a case for my programmable load, in the interests of using FOSS software where possible.

Of course, 36W is nothing! Let’s really push it to the max for a quick minute.
