  2. @drinkingpony The new RPi has two USB3 ports as well as two USB2 ports. Regarding to SATA and spindown: Look up the program hdparm. With it you can configure a spindown-time for each connected drive separately.

  4. @drinkingpony don't get me on silly ideas. I didn't consider selling mine until now. I want to use mine as a home server and NAS, especially because of the separate gigabit network.

  7. @drinkingpony Kinda of a recommendation. It's more about the rage and frustration day-to-day life can be through the lense of exaggerated Japanese (work) culture. Give it a shot. Each episode is about 12 minutes long.

  8. I'm not a fan of anime but Aggretsuko is soulcrushingly entertaining.

  10. Whenever the word "lose" is stretched like "looooooose" does it mean "lose" or "loose"? Weird shower thoughts.

  16. @drinkingpony Yeah. The solder pads are a bit small such that placing a cable might be cost some nerves. A little stress relief and hot glue might make it last. You can also short the reset pin directly on the ESP32 module but its pins are tinier. You can also use any other GPIO pin to trigger a software reset if you don't need all of them and a software reset works just as well as a hardware reset.

  17. @drinkingpony At least I try some other types breads that the baker offers.

  18. People who buy and play Blizzard games perpetuate the sameness of Blizzard games. There is not much incentive for Blizzard to innovate or to diversify their portfolio unless they have to after a decade of nothing.

  19. @drinkingpony It's certainly capable of streaming pictures. It can be clocked to 240MHz with no problem.

  22. @drinkingpony I had something low-key in mind. I received recently a EPS-32 micro controller with a camera attached. I was just thinking of using this to send a very low FPS video stream to a second micro controller with a screen attached whenever the PIR sensor is triggered. I'm sitting in a corner in the office that is pretty much out of sight of the door and I'm sitting with my back to the door. I could use a mirror but that'd be boring.

  23. @drinkingpony 3.15€ to be exact! I have already ordered a replacement. It just takes some time from China. I also ordered a few other parts like a PIR motion detector. I plan to do something when someone enters my office. Like warn me or greet the entering person. I don't know yet.

  24. @drinkingpony Thi is Not salvageable with my skills. The pads go straight into vias to the other side and there it is all covered with WS2812 LEDs. 3€ down the drain. Not worth my time to repair that. http://rainbowdash.net/attachment/874616

  25. The feeling when you solder pins to a LED ring and then it falls down to the ground in such a way that the pins rip out the solder pads rendering the LED ring useless.

  26. I got Pokémon Typing Adventure for the Nintendo DS for 12€ complete. This means that I now have a nintendo Bluetooth keyboard that I can connect to the PC or my Android tablet.

  27. The $1000 monitor stand is just there to make the expensive computer look more reasonably priced.

  28. @oracle The main problem is that I'm not responsible for the storyboard of the training. I'm the one who has to convert the gibberish into code. What I get is a very linear script that tells the user what to do and when the action has been done the next instruction appears. I use a giant state machine (in my current one there are about 80 states) for that purpose. Every time an action or an instruction has ended the state machine advances. The storyboard has 3 "difficulty levels" in mind in which the first level the user get all the instructions and the interaction items are highlighted. The second difficulty level is the same but without the instructions, and the 3rd is with no highlighting. In every state only the currently needed items are interactable and nothing more. My current training has also a little quiz in the second level and a thing where the user has to order the steps on a whiteboard. It's on the level of a kindergartener.

  29. @drinkingpony My cheapo soldering station has a "temperature" dial but that's more a suggestion. It works so far and I'm too lazy to get a better one. I haven't had a cold joint so far and for my imprecise hands it's good enough.

  30. @oracle I programmed several trainings in the past. One was about changing a pH probe of a waste water system, then one about assembling a car's front to the chassis, then one about assembling car cockpit elements, and now it's about servicing the welding gun on a robot arm. In general the clients want to train their people to do a series of task by the book, with no deviation, and they are done in VR because
    1) the machine/process doesn't exist yet and it's quicker to train it beforehand such that the time to applying the real process is as small as possible,
    2) training in the real environment costs too much because it halts/disturbs assembly line and such,
    3) train the process everywhere such that there is no need to go to the real location, which saves on traveling costs,
    4) It's flashy and good for marketing
    5) Can be repeated anytime
    6) A very critical error in real life occurs very rarely and it cannot be replicated in real life but can be in VR
