Can you pick out the headline that a sci-fan could read wrong?

The junk dreams are made of.

This is a batch of junk a friend of the family just gave me. It's great stuff for B horror movie props, and my electronics lab too.

Classic Doom works great on Linux. I use the GZDoom Engine. I did a git clone about a month ago and built that source tree.

This is what shows up in the console when I run Doom:
GZDoom g3.4pre-46-g7bd281ddc - 2018-04-05 11:43:43 +0300 - SDL version
Compiled on Apr 7 2018

This is what shows up on the screen:

Yet another piece of the software puzzle put in place. It isn't all just nuts, bolts and chips with CNC unfortunately. There's the messy software side of it too. I am setting up a new workstation for myself lately because my old one is just too slow for some of the modeling I am getting onto lately. Not that this system is greased lightning by today's standards, but it is a lot faster than my old PC.

Here's a voltage reference circuit that I built up on a breadboard the other day. There was some question when I was building it which was the ground, and which was the input/output based on schematics I saw online. This is what worked for me though. Maybe I have some pins backwards somehow? I don't know. In any event I put pin numbers on the schematic.

To get the board layout to come out neatly I had to swap the ends of the potentiometer in the schematic too. But I edited the schematic to make it look sane for this image. Electrically it really doesn't matter.

If you've ever pulled apart a PC PSU odds are you have one of these little boogers lying around. I have a dozen in my scrap box here. I've pulled apart lots of PSUs apparently.
