And now, there is more time to sit at your desk and do “nerdy” things, such as soldering and coding.
I started out, soldering together a Christmas tree kit that I bought in 2017 on AliExpress (at the time when no customs had to be paid). In any case, here is the result.
I hope you get a cozy feeling from watching the video. But there are, of course, greater challenges that await us this season. First, I have to repair a few of my electronic geocaches. Second, I am working on a new geocache that is voice-controlled. Third, I have a 3D printer kit still waiting to be assembled (a Prusa i3 MK3). And, finally, I bought an FPGA board in order to explore the possibility of compiling the heuristic estimation as used in automated planning into hardware. In other words, there are quite a few projects on the table, and I also plan to continue the blog series on debugging. So, let’s see, how far we get this winter.
