Hi, and welcome.

 

This attempts to be a free-form, (sometimes) co-hosted podcast about tech-oriented hobby-projects. Do not proceed if you're looking for a high-quality production. However, if you enjoy friendly chatter, read on.

 

On a semi-weekly basis, Michai talks about software, electronics and mechanical engineering from a hands-on point of view. Most of the time, that means giving excuses for not having done any work at all.

Made it to episode 20, and it's still a lot of fun - I hope the feeling is mutual. :-)

Topics of interest: a bit of background about this podcast itself, playing around with a vintage Luctor N.V. Multiset AC power-supply, last weeks' effort for the RetroChallenge 2018/04, disassembling a coffee-machine and the upcoming Vintage Computer Festival Europe (VCFe).
