Things of Note
- Adrian McEwen: Here’s the set-up mounted on my bike. It worked okay for Friday night’s 25 mile ride, although I also found a couple of things that need improving for the next version #ibal234 #MyBikesGotLED #weeknotes pic.twitter.com/shDVKs6FRL
- Alex: The boys are hard at work on the power monitoring project #weeknotes pic.twitter.com/bUqfDRy7dH
- Alex: As a young and foolish teenager I expounded to AmsterBren 🇮🇪 🇱🇺 🇪🇺 and Vanessa in the local park on how only science matters. As an older and, slightly, wiser chap, I realise science makes life more comfortable, but art makes life worth living. Les Misérables #weeknotes
- Alex: Just discovered self-hosted GitHub runners can be configured into Actions. Absolutely bloody brilliant. Have been waiting for this for years. Yocto Project watch this space! #weeknotes
- Alex: Why can’t I spend my remaining years in a gorgeous dressing gown, considering the intersections of art, science, and philosophy? #weeknotes pic.twitter.com/gX6Nr7bjeK
- Adrian McEwen: Off to UCL to tell Duncan Wilson‘s MSc students about the ins and out of #IoT business and scaling up production #weeknotes #ibal237
- Jackie Pease: Yay, panniers for my bike at last!
Expertly fitted by John at @pelotonliv #bikiosk Liverpool – recommended for all bike repairs (extra Meccano-style section needed here to fit the frame).
- Adrian McEwen: Pushbutton bike LED prototyping, this week’s MCQN Ltd #weeknotes: Week 850 – Push the Button dlvr.it/SHHQQ9
- Alex: Also, and rather wonderfully, a delicious tasting evening with paired wines, when coupled with a bottle of water, doesn’t spike my glucose anything like a microwave meal 😳 #diabetes #weeknotes twitter.com/embedded_iot/s… pic.twitter.com/PBNNl2wt9t
- DoES Liverpool: Lovely piece of CNC routing by Graham at yesterday evening’s #makernight, helped by Russ
- Matthew Croughan: Going to try and make #NixOS work on the #pikvm and produce a CI system for distributing it in under 500 lines of Nix. #weeknotes pic.twitter.com/plBqEnv46A
- Alex: Really pleased with what I have here. Been wanting this for literally YEARS. meta-mono now builds on GitHub self-hosted runners. Also runs the Yocto test cases I have in the layer for the success criteria. Joy!

- Jackie Pease: One down – 44 to go!
Wiring up the #plasticflowers with Mike G
- Jackie Pease: Afternoon spent wiring up the LEDs on my #plasticflowers with Mike G at Plastic Tactics #plasticplaygroup @doesliverpool
They all seem to work – just the back to tidy up now and make a box for the power supply
