I program for over 20 years. I just closed some tabs from yesterday:

"how to create directory in python"
"concat lists python"
"load 2 models tensorflow"
"how set pythonpath"

and some others.

And yes. I have a masters degree in informatics.

You don't need to learn things that you rarely need & are just 1 duckduckgo away by heart. Knowing that they exist and what to search for is sufficient.

Important are the thing you cannot search. Concentrate on those.

It lives! My OBS plugin to center a camera onto an ArUco marker is finally working. No more touching the camera while filming/streaming, just show the marker and the camera centers on it. github.com/dunkelstern/obs-aru

Hm ok this is interesting... if a mastodon instance is down for some time the timeline gets scrambled for some time until it catches up to the network... I have stuff that is 7 hours old and toots that were written a minute ago intermixed...

Out with the three remote controls, in with the 3d printed daughterboard housing for the firetv remote. It contains an arduino nano, an IR LED, a lipo charger+battery, has 6 buttons (av receiver power, projector power, aux power, receiver input, vol up/down) and will clip onto the side of the firetv remote. Best trick up my sleeve: if you don’t press a button the arduino will take no current at all.

Nice pretty pictures... This is a comparison of the Geolocation API (Coordinates from Celltowers and Wifi) from UnwiredLabs (blue), Google (red), Skyhook (green) and our own learning algorithm (yellow). Seems we do not have enough data yet.

OH: wenn „PoE“ Power over Ethernet bedeutet ist „PPPoE“ dann Drehstrom over Ethernet?

Yeah it seems to work. Have to dial in my cutting depth a bit but hey, you can see what it should look like. And i just broke one drill while testing the workpiece z homing sensor (because i forgot to ground the drill). So i have now a version of marlin that can probe the workpiece to determine the length of the drill in the chuck. And i have a modified version of flatcam that uses that for tool changes. Enough for today

Anybody know of a marlin feature branch that can disable thermal runaway protection via gcode? Need that for my milling option on the 3d printer...

And so my trusty mendel90 becomes a PCB mill... some firmware patching has to be done though. I have to optionally disable the heater runaway protection as there isn’t even a thermistor connected right now... and if course the first prototype of the toolhead is not rigid enough. Iteration 2 will follow when this one proves working.

Oops... 24 Watts of LED Lighting get pretty hot... perhaps I should have 3D Printed the parts from ABS... So far the PLA has not melted yet... And I think I am overdriving the power supply a bit. Are Chinese 2 Amps more like 1.5 Amps? :P
