I really liked Testament in high school and kind of lost track of them after The Ritual. Today I learned that they released The Gathering in '99 with Dave fucking Lombardo on drums and it's great! Is it the best non-Scandinavian metal album of the late 90s?


pdx.social is now running 2.9.2. You have to go into the prefs and disable the "advanced" UI if you want the single-column mode. I like it!

There are some great articles here on the design and implementation of an ECS written in C. It helped answer some questions I was having like "should and entity allow more than one instance of the same component?".


First collective LP from the NY hip-hop family of Pro Era, Flatbush Zombies and the Underachievers. So many good MCs in one place - I know this will be one of my favorites of 2019.

There's a good photo of one of our playdate test benches in this Oregonian article. The cart covered in devices is a copy of our "runin" station at the factory. We plug lots of devices in and run them a couple of hours monitoring the battery drain and other things.


If you have an iOS device I highly recommend you check out play.date/media/ and scroll down to the AR section. You can view the device in AR and its really fun to play with.

For real, Playdate is Panic hitting their stride, surprising and delightful in the special way that they've truly mastered. I can't wait for people to get to play it, and I'm so happy for all my former coworkers – y'all are doing an amazing job ✌️

if y'all don't think panic x teenage engineering is the greatest possible collab ever, i don't know what to tell you

I'm incredibly happy to finally be able to talk about this wild thing I've been apart of building for 4 years!

I was starting to get excited about building a modular amateur radio automation system in python then I found one under active development. Now I’m sort of grumpily going through the code and issues to see what I can work on. Shouldn’t I be happy about this!?

The new 2.8 update looks great but I will stick to my ".1" update policy for pdx.social.

Going to the hardware store for parts for my first antenna build. I’m hoping to build a solid copper wire QFH for satellite reception.
