* gchristensen is back
<gchristensen> how is the emmc w.r.t. the storage wearing out?
<samueldr> impossible to know :)
<gchristensen> hehe
<samueldr> I mean, it all depends on the emmc
<samueldr> some are basically sd cards with bga footprint, others are better
<gchristensen> ahh ok
<gchristensen> I'll peel the sticker and take a look here after an install.
<samueldr> though the fact they're not removable*, like SD cards probably helps
<samueldr> * here I assume those modules with connectors can be considered unremovable
<gchristensen> :)
<samueldr> im my limited experience, I have had no device with an eMMC having its eMMC go bad
<samueldr> though in my experience, I only have had one SSD go bad, and no hard drives :/
<gchristensen> I have also been lucky :)
<gchristensen> hrm. I think I should move to a more comfortable seat, but it means shutting this thing down....
<samueldr> how would you otherwise know it's not been a fluke, that it booted fine?
<gchristensen> good point, better get comfy.

<samueldr> yeah
<gchristensen> this system is the first one I have not named after a futurama character.
<samueldr> why break the rule?
<gchristensen> its called Barm, after an early stage of sourdough starter
<samueldr> that's just silly
<gchristensen> okay fine I'll name it after a futurama charecter :)
<gchristensen> nixos-manpages are taking a long time to build
<gchristensen> not sure I like how nix2 hides the logs
<gchristensen> poor little xsltproc spinning the CPU as fast as it can

<samueldr> gchristensen: what's the partition at the back?
* samueldr should've read
<samueldr> it's swap
<gchristensen> :)
<samueldr> oh well, can't tell if it's because it was in a VM, but I can't use the official tools to recognize the device properly, or send the "binary" to it :/ I profoundly dislike how user-hostile things are :(
<gchristensen> what's this?
<samueldr> qualcomm things
<gchristensen> ack
<samueldr> official as in not-obtained-in-legit-manner
<samueldr> and due to the fact that those devices become useless if the bootloader stored on their internal storage gets booped, it's scary to play directly on them
<gchristensen> :|
<gchristensen> sounds like a hefty budget would be helpful so you can boop them in to submission
<gchristensen> in other news, I rebooted my computer by typing in to not the serial console.
<samueldr> I always get a small shock when I type `[sudo] reboot` into a console and see it disappear, thinking I might have rebooted the wrong computer :)
<gchristensen> :)
<samueldr> gchristensen: hefty budget? not sure I follow
<gchristensen> well if you had $1,000,000 you could do a whole lot of destructive experimenting :P
<samueldr> oh sure
<samueldr> at that budget a real dev board for those platforms can be acquired... with documentation and tools
<gchristensen> right
<gchristensen> how much is that?
<samueldr> annoyingly, not much, but too much :) 1049$ for the 835 HDK, (I assume it has docs, but haven't verified) but it doesn't come with a screen, so an additional cost is needed for that
<gchristensen> that is cool!
<samueldr> the worst, imo, is how I have seen "actual phone" [SH]DK from qualcomm, in pictures, that would actually be neat
<gchristensen> :)
<gchristensen> is that something different, or those things you just linked?
<samueldr> something different, haven't been able to find traces of it even existing
<gchristensen> gotcha
<gchristensen> kind of funny, I've done a lot with big arm machines, but this is the first time I've actually used something the size of a raspberry pi
jackdk_ has quit [Ping timeout: 250 seconds]
<samueldr> any particular idea on a thing to do with it?
<gchristensen> I don't have a great idea, but I do have an immediate need for something to generate a small amount of heat, to keep my sourdough starter warm enough to keep from going dormant
<samueldr> get a cat?
<samueldr> :)
<gchristensen> haha
<gchristensen> and actually, `stress -c4` might be too much heat

<samueldr> fun!
<gchristensen> I have an i2c, food-safe and water-proof thermometer I want to put in there...
<worldofpeace> gchristensen: Aren't you worried about the EMF exposure?
<gchristensen> yeast are one of the most successful biological organisms on the planet ... if they can't absorb some EMF, I'll be surprised :)

<gchristensen> I know what more of these words mean
<worldofpeace> Had a hunch since they're harmful to most lifeforms. Protect your yeast :D
<gchristensen> at any rate, worldofpeace, I don't know! we'll see :) sitting on my counter, the yeast were dormant. if I need to start over later, I can do that
<worldofpeace> Wait is that a wifi adapter I see in the photograph?
<gchristensen> yea
<gchristensen> so I can have my home Prometheus monitor it
<worldofpeace> next level yeast monitoring for sure.
<gchristensen> ok past my bed time.
<gchristensen> night y'all
<gchristensen> thank you a *LOT* for your continued help, samueldr.

<gchristensen> trying to hook up a dang resistor to a dang adc pin and spent an hour trying three shops to buy one, and not a one had them.
<samueldr> this has a hotdog.jpg vibe somehow
<gchristensen> I don't know that reference
<samueldr> king of the hill, hank hill trying to get a picture of a hotdog printed
v0|d has joined #nixos-aarch64
<gchristensen> ohhh haha
<makefu> gchristensen: i am pretty sure the easiest thing is in that order: 1 fetch the right resistor from your local hackerspace 2 daisy chain enough resistors to get the right value 3 buy 1000-package from aliexpress

<gchristensen> my "local" hackerspace is > 110km away :(
<gchristensen> the source of my trouble is I donated all my electronic kit parts to the hackerspace near where I used to live, before I moved here
<makefu> there are so few occurences when i need resistors that i also do not have any at home. however my local hackerspace is 10 walking-minutes away. seems your options are somewhat limited now. maybe build your own resistor for testing? that is definitly hacker-worthy!
<gchristensen> oh cool
<gchristensen> I need to make a voltage divider :)
<LnL> lol, "do NOT use this in high voltage"
