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.

This episode wraps up my (hobby)work for the RetroChallenge 2018/04, and talks about a favourite scripting-language or the lack thereof, the use of SD-cards, finding a new pet (or PET..?) homecomputer/console, and NE555-sound.
