listen, I don't want to tell you how to live your life, but honestly this is not a bad way to do it πŸ˜‹

I'm running out of space in the spice drawer. This is such a fun problem to have!

still very early stages atm, but if we can figure out a button press i'm pretty sure the possibilities are LIMITLESS

good morning, little plantlings!

Found a large packet of googly-eyes today while cleaning the apartment. I don't remember having this much fun with these things as a kid...

Nixie tubes from ebay finally arrived in the mail! πŸ“£πŸ˜

I need to figure out how to build a (maybe two stage?) boost converter to drive the things at something like ~180 V DC. That'll be a fun little project.

This stuff better turn me into an astronaut or something...

He got frightened by the radiator earlier, but I think he's slowly warming up to it.

It's a great big world out there.
