@paul @hecanjog@merveilles.town my current thoughts:

- throwing an aggressive limiter on the last stage of the audio
- switching to open back headphones
- some kind of outboard gear for emergency stop????

@paul / @hecanjog@merveilles.town y'all have any opinions about how to avoid tinnitus when debugging audio dsp routines? I have to use headphones due to house configuration, but I'm open to whatever.

was doing something that seemed pretty benign last night, and even without too high volume, I was suffering.

as always there is a bug in any code you post.

Sending lua code over serial and executing on device.

Have to set up end points for the buttons, midi, and timers, but... Thats kinda the whole thing.

most of this shanzhai article focuses on the counter fitting aspect, but the part that is interesting to me is

"The prevalence of shanzhai mobile phones is usually attributed to their low price, multi-functional performance, and imitations of trendy mobile phone design. Although shanzhai companies do not use branding as a marketing strategy, they are known for their flexibility of design to meet specific market needs"

sorry for federated pals, this is pretty context free! I'm making a drum machine thingy.

last night I got lua running - this is displaying output in a webbrowser with lua running on the board.

Old news for people that use circuitpython, but having a compiler free path for writing code on an embedded device is very exciting for me.

hopefully I'll be able to make a little web script editor as well, so you won't even need a text editor.

In other words: if Friend Camp never had local only posting, we would not have cohered as a community, and we would have contributed far less to the fediverse as a whole than we do with the ability to post unfederated.

Friend Camp has about 50 active users and I just noticed we have more than half a million posts here since August 2018! I mean that's 11 a day per person on average but still. That seems wild to me.

Last I checked something like 75% of our posts are unfederated. That's still 125 thousand posts sent to the fediverse. I think local-only posting increases the vitality of community, increasing the volume of overall activity, and contributing more to the fediverse than a less vital instance would.

i've tagged out 600+ open source, experimental and tiny tools by their qualities and built a new website for sorting through them!

these are all tools towards joyful digital creation, with the goal of enabling working entirely outside of proprietary systems- moving instead from one hand-made software to another.

(the list takes submissions if it is missing yours >:))

I sold out of my Mountains so I plotted up some new ones last night.

These are much faster to plot than the forests, but use 8 different pens, more than any of my other trading cards by a lot!

this really brings the Monster Factory ethos of "No Middle Sliders" to another place

I'm proud of how incredibly shitty this board looks. You can do something like that unless you are a real amateur.

keyboard nerds: I'm thinking about getting a run of 5 mysterium (https://github.com/coseyfannitutti/mysterium) PCBs manufactured, with white silk screen on blue solder mask and ENIG contacts

unfortunately I do not have anything to do with 5 PCBs, so would anyone be interested in leftovers for $20?
