Pinned toot

Hi! My creative self didn’t have much room to grow in my life so far, so I came here to nourish it.
I live in northern Germany and I’m interested in Linux, FOSS, visual art and embedded devices. I love stickers and listening to music.
See you around!

I find the stuff that Hundred Rabbits are doing with relatively ancient and minimal hardware/software and breathing new life into them, a breath of fresh air on this front.

Reading the news lately makes me think about a different kind of PPE…and I only read the bare minimum >,<

Okay, here are the paintings I did yesterday and today with everything working against me. I got some of the brushes and colors today that I had left behind to make it a bit easier. #mastoArt #creativeToot #traditionalArt #landscapepainting

Having a hard time trying to cheer up and support my friends living in the US :/

I like NixOS. I think I’m gonna keep it, at least for a while.

Oh shoot, the plants I have outside are requiring way more water than I anticipated. Hopefully some of them can recover :/

Practicing french on duolingo makes for surprisingly good typing practice with my ergodox keyboard.

I finished the abstract album artwork yesterday. The commissioner loves it. 💃 Tomorrow a new tattoo commission journey starts. #art #illustration #mastoart

Also I’d like to require only one power supply for it to run, but the display runs on 12V. Can I just split the 12V from the display driver board for a voltage regulator that then supplies the raspberry pi? 🤔

This is ending up more expensive than I thought 😅
I’ll focus first on figuring out if/how I’m going to fit everything in there. The display driver board will take a while from China and probably take up a good chunk of space.

The gap might actually be great for the display cable later 🤔

This is going to be the base for my "cyberdeck" project (for the lack of a better name yet).
Let’s hope the TKC-1800 PCB will fit in there so I can get some MX clears in there.

Ideally, if the new PCB is small enough, I’ll fit a Raspberry Pi 4 in there by taking the magnet card reader out and mount the display of my old Thinkpad on it.

It will also get a sling to carry it across the venue of future Chaos Computer Club events.

...at least that’s the idea ;)

@aynish Nevermind, the documentation says yes. For some reason `home-manager` uses `/nix/var/nix/profiles/per-user/root/channels` instead of my user’s home now though. Guess I have more doc reading to do later today :)
