Today, the day after Q1 grades were due, I walked around wearing a micro:bit that had "NO" scrolling across it.

When asked why, I said it was for students who asked if they could hand in Q1 work.

My ulterior motive: I had VERY engaged 5th graders learning how to code the micro:bit today.

emergency raspi4 question: no wireless interfaces found despite fresh buster install on sd card and raspi-config did run

In an all day training for this neat little thing called a micro:bit.

Looks like I've gone and done it.

I'd call this an impulse purchase, but I've been seriously planning this since @djsundog started getting his shipping notices.

So long as @PINE64 doesn't ship in LATE December I'll have it in time to play with over Winter Break. Fingers crossed.

Pinebook Pro Portastudio? Possibly!

Hey #Linux users!

I'm looking for a CD titler similar to a casino CW-100, and associated software and #drivers for #ubuntu or another #Debian derivative.

Do you know of something similar with Linux support? Or am I going to have to stick this thing on an airgapped XP box or a well isolated VM?

Today during my club my middle school students did the following:

1. Defeated the monster with the power of friendship ℒ️ (and a nat 20...) thus avoiding combat entirely.

2. Got lost in the forest, then argued over wheather or not they should burn it down.

The next batches of the #PinebookPro are now shipping!

The next pre-order window opens on November 5th. A choice of ANSI and ISO keyboards will be available in this batch. So if you've been holding out for a correctly shaped Enter key (can you tell I'm an American? πŸ˜‰), now will be the time to order!

There were two settings for vinyl, but considering how cheap this 3rd party stuff was I was correct in assuming it was the thinner setting.

"But Aaron," you ask, "Why didn't you try a small scale test so you would waste hardly any vinyl at all?"

Because I didn't think about it until after I started the cutting process, that's why.
