Also I love the overall design of this device. Bootup animation is a water drop video (1bit black and white, no less), and the back cover is sttlized to look like a water ripples. That's all under a transparent piece of plastic, thet makes it look really cool IMO
I think the cutest thing on this device is how it has a read-only simple PIM included. gnomad2 doesn't seem to allow syncing with it, but I absolutely love the idea of using this unironically back in the day
I love the feeling of old things still working.
I've found this fella in a drawer some time ago. It wasn't working - the hard drive inside didn't survive when it was dropped on the floor some time ago. Turns out it's possible to (carefully) disassemble it and replace with a Compact Flash card, as it uses a standard PATA interface. Add to that a new battery from AliExpress and... somehow I wasn't able to flash it with a new firmware. (1/2)
Looks like local repeaters are advertising themselves using #APRS Bulletin Messages. Cool, even though personally I wouldn't allow them to bounce off digipeaters 😉
#fedikitchen while more or less forced to stay at home, we have tried to make roast potatoes from serious eats. I can definitely recommend making them, and we will definitely make them again
