Every time I can sleep, I design a PCB. This one was a tough one: basically I took the PewPew Lite FeatherWing and tried to squeeze it into the D1 Mini shield size, without changing the connections, so that it will still be code-compatible. I managed to do it just barely, but had to put two ugly resistors between the buttons, because there was no other place they would fit.

Ok, we're back. Let me know if anyone experiences any issues.

Going to be upgrading to Mastodon 2.9.0 here in a few minutes. The service may be down for a little bit.

I'm making open source emojis!!!

I would really appreciate contributions and feedback!


Don't like Github and Gitlab? Try out Codeberg! It is a central website using gitea in case you don't know/want to host a server.

SPI byte glitch fixed and the emulated signal is only 20ns behind the real one, which just meets timing requirements for a 20MHz clock with 5ns to spare. was down for a little while due to a full disk, but it's fixed now. I'm going to look into block storage for us so that we can grow more easily.

Makerdon is a Mastodon instance focused on Makers, Open Source Hardware (OSHW) and STEM/STEAM. Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) is a likely topic as well. If you're interested in making things, allowing others to build on your work, and/or teaching others about making things, you might like this instance.
