Just about finished designing it now. I think its laid out good enough just for testing. I'll be a lot more careful in the final version when I'm actually designing a case for it.
More buttons on the back.

Almost finished designing a gamepad carrier board for the pi pico. Soo many improvements from my first one there would be too many to list them all. Its still just a prototype though.

* More buttons! 22 in total.
* hookups for switch joysticks.
* I think I should be able to use the state machines on the pico to poll the button matrix.

My end goal will be to make a handheld based on the pi compute module 4 but I'm starting small just making sure the software/hw of the controller will work.

I miss the ocean like an emperor penguin sitting on its egg. Fucking starving here

Just got an interview for a great union job. I'll be able to see doctors again! But I'll be spending a lot less time on projects.

There's technically no law against building a tiny cabin inside a bigger house, a slightly bigger apartment, or a garage if the walls are not attached to the ceiling or the other interior walls and you're not running any pipes, drains, or wires

Athiests can be just as bad about it I don't want to hear it.

Don't be a zealot. This goes for almost everything. Religion(Yeah every last one of you), Software(Sorry Systemd+GNU+Linux folks), Companies(looking at you Apple and Tesla fans).

*This does not apply to mac and cheese, cookies or tea.

Web development is a waist land. You can't change my mind.

Making a double batch of shortbread. If you can find them you can have them.

I need to move back to the ocean. This freezing landlocked life just isn't for me.

Some games I've been playing recently

* Rues - a rogue lite resource/time management god game? Pretty fun.
* FTL - No explanation needed. It's great.
* Endless sky - A free space trading sandbox game with a story(choose your own adventure).
* Total War Warhammer 2 - I have some beef with the mechanics(lords being overpowered) but it's still a lot of fun.

I knew somebody that spent hundreds of dollars on... uh fuck that space game that had a kickstarter that sells virtual ships. I sometimes(just right now) wonder what happened to that guy.
