Explore the Cosmos with this DIY Digital Telescope
Getting a closer look at the Moon isn’t particularly difficult; even an absolute beginner can point a cheap telescope towards our nearest celestial neighbor and get some impressive views. But if you’re … https://hackaday.com/2021/03/05/explore-the-cosmos-with-this-diy-digital-telescope/

SparkFun's Mars Debut - News - SparkFun Electronics - A laser altimeter available in the SparkFun store is used on the Ingenuity Helicopter that's on Mars.
@stringlapse I've been running eSUN Pro PLA and PETG for about the last 10 months. I've been happy with it. I have not tried their natural PLA though. I've only used their orange and grey in both PLA and PETG.
@stringlapse Sorry to hear that. I've been there too.
@stringlapse Did the only laying down lose bed adhesion?
@ChrisWere Your content on Gemini has been really interesting. I installed Amfora to have a look.
@Sylphox while I agree with the general sentiment that the static linking popularity is misplaced, the security issues are overblown. Not because it's not secure, but that relying on the ugradability of libraries for security is little more than lipstick on the proverbial pig.
The problem is the lack of security isolation in Linux. I wrote a longer post on this topic already if anyone is interested in my opinion on this: https://functional.cafe/@loke/105764187037871755
Does anyone have any thoughts on this? Rust not dynamically linking dependencies by default.
3D Print Your Next Antenna
Building antennas is a time-honored ham radio tradition. Shortwave antennas tend to be bulky but at VHF frequencies the antenna sizes are pretty manageable. [Fjkaan’s] 2 meter quadrifilar helicoidal antenna is a good example a… https://hackaday.com/2021/02/19/3d-print-your-next-antenna/

Wrote myself a little LED strip controller. Adding wifi support next.
@Hukadan I've tried to run Mobian/Phosh a a couple of times and it refused to update. It complains that there are dependency conflicts. Even doing the fix commands with apt in the terminal didn't fix it.
Pine64 February Update - It's interesting to me that they're going to start shipping PinePhones with Manjaro/Plasma by default. #pinephone

@benuron This is interesting. I use PrusaSlicer almost exclusively and have not noticed this, but I've never done a side-by-side with Cura.
#prusaslicer vs #cura...I am trying to move away from cura but some interesting results are happening! the two #3DBenchy on the left are sliced in prusa and the most right one in cura. Same filament, print temps and speeds. prusaslicer always squashes benchy quite a bit :( I like prusa slicer GUI a bit more but the results are very poor.
