Put together a rough housing for my clocks. Not incredibly pretty but makes organizing and displaying them easier.

Built a very basic clock on a rpi zero w. Just using the example python code from pimironi for now, but started porting to Go. My eInk project got much less far, but is drawing text using Go at the very least.

Every time I solder, I feel like a wizard.

Today I'm putting together some raspberry pi pieces to make a simple clock.

Merveilles Jam Thread

I know we're not friday yet, but let's start up a thread with resources and things so people can get organized.

:merveilles:

been cooking my own breakfast more lately. Two eggs, a roll, gochujang, ketchup.

I've been working from home, NYC is mostly closed now. I did some volunteer work on projectbaseline.com over the weekend, which helped me channel my anxiety.

Three projects that I'm working on this week to stay positive:
- walls.natwelch.com : building a tool to keep this synced across my workstations now that I've moved off of Dropbox.
- etu.natwelch.com : Restart my work on my time tracker
- Running a D&D campaign on Discord for my friends.

Currently in Costa Rica. Came here for a vacation, but depression is keeping me from being able to stay happy or motivated.

That being said, my brain is working and more creative than it has been in a while. It just seems near impossible to put anything to paper.

Yes, of course I want a rotary cell phone.

The power switch is an actual slide switch. No holding down a stupid button to make it turn off and not being sure it really is turning off or what. justine-haupt.com/rotarycellph

I've been churning through the Expanse book series lately. On book 7 now, and I love the twists and different styles this series keeps dropping in. Impressive the authors have kept it at this quality for so long.

I like this a lot. Whenever I get rejected by smaller companies, I wish I had the oportunity to show them more of who I am before they reject me based off of a PDF.

I have trouble keeping habits up, but my theory is that if I track them better, I'll keep them more consistently. Does that match with your experiences?

I see so many people here that produce so many different kinds of cool and creative things and I want to know what the work methodology is to make it happen.

What's everyone's fix for carving out the time when you have several time-intensive interests?

I've been trying to make a habit of committing time each day to web dev, visual art, and music, but it seems inevitable that at least one of them doesn't happen after a while. Life gets busy. What do you do? What's your schedule?
