Zählt #vim eigentlich schon zu den Escape Rooms?

today in "no way you can do that": wd hdd with onboard usb3-interface and no sata. i/o-errors, not properly recognized. usb-controller might be broken.
well...but...there's a datasheet for the usb-sata-bridge. so i unsoldered the bridge and wired up a sata port. works. connected via sata. properly recognized. hd is still fucked, though. but anyway, my hack works. 😄

finished the overpriced mixer with the terrible psu. we were out of step-up converter boards, so the owner ordered some and we installed it (bypassing the original step-up converter that's to the left of it). it works, and it doesn't even look that terrible. 😁 i just had to drill a mounting hole into the board (there were none). and because it's an elegant solution, it doubles as a ground connection.

hey retro-nerds, ich brauch euer fachwissen! wir haben da so nen großen eckigen transporter aus den 80ern, den wir für events nutzen. der soll zeitgenössische werbung im stil der späten 80er / frühe 90er für "kybernetische dienstleistungen" bekommen. ich suche gerade schöne referenzen zur inspiration, hat da zufällig jemand was? :)

internet said the code could also be triggered by the discharge pump. whatever. disassembled that one, too. couldn't find problems. internet said to get a new one. fuck that. disassembled the control board (that was under 4 layers of plastic clips), there were two big relays on it, they both had cracked solder joints (heavy relay, mounted sideways + 15 years of vibrations...kind of obvious). fixed that,'s working! nice. take that, consumerism! (2/2)

i fixed our washing machine! that was more complicated than it should've been. it would randomly stop the program at some point, or it would work just fine. i finally found a manual that told me how to make it signal its error codes (with a blinking led). code said there's something wrong with the rpm signal or motor. so i checked the brushes, the commutator, the hall sensor and all the wiring. couldn't find anything. (1/2)

and i liked the one with all the fog machines. because i like fog machines. and because that one really focused on the videomapping.

also there were nerd jokes and political statements. i like that. (the other projections were nice, but somewhat trivial and without a message).

this was the projection on the national theatre, i liked it the most, so here's another clip:

went to the local videomapping festival and saw some nice things.
CW: flashy lights, loud sound

finally made it to the today (haven't been there in weeks, eventhough it's just 10min away). it's a beautiful wilderness right now and everything seems to be in bloom :)

it think i'm gonna be here for a while, the rain is just getting heavier and i don't want to walk the 4km home...
but it's nice here.

i'm stuck at the hackspace because of rain
for some reason, that's a really tranquil feeling
i'm all alone in the building and it's quiet outside
i'm on a comfy couch, the lights are dimmed
when i look out of the windows theres a big empty square with beautiful old buildings
there's a bottle of wine on the table (that a girl gave to me for lending her a tape recorder for a exhibit, because my life is like that)
i don't even drink wine, but still
i should come here to just hang out more often 😄

zeit für das große mechanik-puzzle! hoffentlich bleibt nix übrig. 😅
