About a million years ago, I "invented" a Theramin which could be played on an Android phone.

Sadly the app no longer works, but the music lives on!

Picked up a cheeky from @concretedog at and finally got around to seeing what was hidden inside… 🥰

Holy forking shirtballs!

Actually won something on the Octopus wheel o' fortune.

PiWings mini drone looks interesting but a) it’s RP2040 + ESP for WiFi which is a frustrating mix and b) it’s SB Components so I’d rather not. What are some alternatives for a curious hacker? https://www.cnx-software.com/2024/06/07/piwings-2-0-tiny-drone-based-on-raspberry-pi-pico-and-esp8266-wifi-module/

Who could have predicted that this poll would be so divisive! TIL. Scientific research, though 🤷

Anyone using pixelfed(.social) with 2FA and being prompted for a 2FA code every. single. time they go there? Or is it weirdness on my side.

Trying out the new Oxpecker app - Mastodon on Apple Watch 👋🏻

@sam it is nice for browsing, of course text input on the Watch is fiddly, but I posted from it!

EDIT: Solved with brute force!

Just getting round to playing with my #tildagon @badge
I'm not too familiar with PCB doohickeys.
Is there a smart way to unclip the battery again? Lifting or squeezing something? It's a very firm connection and I'm reluctant to pull it very hard in case that's the wrong thing to do and does damage!

andypiper,
@andypiper@macaw.social avatar

@jtruk @badge it is just a very tight connector. If you have a set of tools for e.g. pulling keycaps or chips you can grasp it on either side and pull up.

actually hold on a minute, it hasn't been called that for a few years now, should these annoying files be just macOS by now. For a fresh variety of annoyance. So much for Apple's legendary attention to detail!

One of the services I use all the time to enhance my Mastodon experience is Murmel @murmel_social - great way to keep up with popular links and conversations you might otherwise miss.

Things I came back from with:

  1. Many stickers
  2. A printed mastodon magnet
  3. Some old fairy lights
  4. An awesome badge
  5. COVID-19

Might be worth testing if you were there.

Ok just catching up on the Bartender thing and pretty annoyed as it’s something I’ve used for years on my Macs. Beyond that, as a paying long-term customer, really disappointed by the way the original author handled this. Rip and replace in the morning!

🆕 blog! “EMF 2024 - A Quick Retrospective”
★★★★★

Six years ago, I went to my first EMF Camp. The next event was cancelled by Covid. The one after that saw me come down with Covid - although I presented remotely. So I was beyond thrilled to be able to attend & speak this year. There's always a risk that you can never recapture […]

@Edent I think the badges are pretty good, I already have a lot of ideas for things that could be improved on the default experience, and there’s 2 whole years to level them up for another run. So I get your point about wanting a working out of the unbox experience for a paid-for thing, but I’m willing to forgive on this one. I share your “pillar in the middle of stage B” frustration!
