Just want to post a reminder that if you're on this instance and you're not into making the same types of things you see me post, that's ok. If you're making (or have made) a thing and want to share it, please feel free. I'll usually post things that are electronics or mechanics related, but I'm always interested in seeing the diverse things that makers create.

BeagleV - Looks like and Seeed Studio are planning to launch an open hardware RISC-V development board capable of running Linux for about $150 USD.

The milling side is finally done after about ten hours on the CNC! I still plan to chamfer and reduce the diameter in the lathe, then drill & thread a hole in the back for threaded rod for the handle. #tinkering

It would take an extra step, but it would give the Lisp language direct access to everything the Arduino lib has to offer.

Pinecil is back in stock! This is not a drill!

BTW, today we released #PeerTube v3, complete with p2p live streaming features and a behind-the-scene short film.

Read more about it on our blog (and please share 😉)

Need a terminal markdown viewer? Look no further than mdcat!

I like using it with the -p option to use a pager

I updated the FennelConf page with a listing of everyone who's offered to show so far:
