"Underemployment is when workers are working less than full-time" that's such a shitty reference, I'll take every opportunity to NOT work 40 hours a week even if it means getting by with less money. Let me experience life a little, goddamn

I've never seen Riven mentioned before! One of my absolute favorites, such a standout game and art design and lore and whatnot

Color me surprised /s

joulethief ,

The suspense is incredible. Some news sources say legalisation is basically certain (and it's about time!) since the health committee has passed the bill on wednesday. It still has to go through the Bundesrat (federal assembly) and that seems to be where expectations don't quite line up. It will be exciting to see where all of this is going.

joulethief ,

Oh, and 4.5 million cannabis users seems a little... "off" to say the least

Someone help her she's already being rasterized

Glossy orange orbs- Brisbane, Australia

https://i.imgur.com/11zentP.jpegThese have been accumulating around the cracks of my house for a few weeks. Google searches of Orange orbs, orange eggs, glossy orange eggs etc haven't been helpful. Does anyone have any ideas what this could be? I'm assuming some sort of insect egg/cocoon?

I can't help but wonder how my life would be different if mindlessly staring at screens wasn't an option

YouTube is my vice. I spend hours and hours and hours there watching videos every single day. I've recently however starting to resent the fact that apparently I seem to prefer watching other people do stuff rather than do that myself. Watching interesting videos feels like a leisure but doing interesting stuff has somehow in my...

joulethief ,

I'm in the same boat as you. No idea just how many hours I've spent on YouTube over the last couple of weeks. There's this maker community in my town and while it was always fun whenever I'd go there, most of the time I just can't make myself get up. Well, weed might be part of the equation, but even without that I somehow always prefer the "instant gratification" of opening up YouTube from the comfort of my sofa.

I can't stand this corpo speak, it always makes me want to throw up

joulethief ,

Yes! And keep us updated on the results!

He needs you to open one of those cans, for... quality assurance

I experienced that very feeling on an acid trip a long time ago. Wasn't frightening or anything, I actually enjoyed it

Currently building an indirect backlight for my bathroom mirror. The outer ring is going to hold a piece of warm-white LED strip.

No output with MCP1700-3302E

I’m trying to build a esp8266 weather station and got some MCP1700-3302E to power the esp8266 from a lipo. But when I connect the lipo to the MCP1700 (looking at it flat spot at the front, ground left, Vin in the middle and Vout on the right) I get no output at Vout. I googled and could not find anything. I tested 5 different...

joulethief ,

Unlikely. Have you measured the voltage present at Vin?

joulethief ,

Just to be sure: positive probe on Vin, negative probe on GND, measurement shows no minus sign?

joulethief ,

Huh, that’s weird. Double checking the part markings would’ve been my next suggestion, but the picture shows they’re correct. Maybe try a 1kOhm load resistor across Vout and GND, though in theory you should be able to see the output voltage without it.

Anyone has the famous reddit story with the immortal snail?

There was this legendary comment on reddit to a thread asking people what would their plan be if they were immortal and got milion dollars, but there was a superintelligent immortal snail also with milion dollars who would want to kill them. I was trying to find it but as far as I can tell OP removed it. Does anyone here have it...

joulethief ,

How would even the most evil of snails be able to kill me if I am immortal?

joulethief ,

I haven’t got enough time on my hands right now to review the whole desingn, but one thing that jumps to mind is that you’ll want to use an antiparallel diode on each relay coil to suppress the negative voltage spikes when switching it off.

Be sure to keep adequate distance between high and low voltage traces. The ground plane seems awfully close to the N trace.

Other than that, I’d happily welcome more PCB and/or personal project discussions!

joulethief ,

You’re welcome!

You’re very enthusiastic about beans and I like that

What is your comfort activity (like comfort food)?

Mine is playing AOE2 in easiest (or standard if I want a bit of challenge) mode against 3 bots. I just build my economy, wall up (and laugh at the enemy soldiers attacking my walls in vain), reach imperial age and attack once my army reaches the population limit. I also send 104 in the chat so they don’t surrender and I can...

joulethief ,

Hey you just coincidentally listed all of my interests

joulethief ,

That’s me right now. Went through a breakup because, in hindsight, I wasn’t properly communicating my needs. We still get along very well which makes me think it could have worked out.

joulethief ,

Can you tell us the name of the community you mentioned?

joulethief ,

Short answer: Fuck them

Long answer: Too bad they’re important for our ecosystem. But still, fuck them
