Hi, and welcome.

 

This attempts to be a free-form, (mostly un-cohosted) podcast about tech-oriented hobby-projects. Do not proceed if you're looking for a high-quality production.

Finally, some very-voodoo and somewhat-less-voodoo methods of measuring...

After 5 weeks or so, we're finally back! You'd think this episode is filled with 5 weeks worth of exciting techie stuff, but don't get your hopes up yet. Because it's not.

Domen joins in to talk about his experiments with home automation, and a sowing exhibition lacking electronics and software. Furthermore, we talk...

Finally, the "we" in announcements doesn't just mean the royal we / majestic plural, but there's an actual co-host! Introduction is in the audio contents, so I guess you'll just have to listen. </clickbait>

We talk about first contact with the Rust programming language, coroutines for implementing lightweight...
