I can think of ways of doing it, but they’re not pretty — e.g. onscreen keyboard made of
<a> elements, each keypress is a full screen refresh which stores the new contents of the fake textbox server side (either cookies or URL param to identify session). Makes me wonder… did anyone do something like this at the time, before HTML forms were invented?
It just took me about 30 mins to figure it out, so here’s how to install python plugins in KiCad 5.0 on a Mac.
KICAD_SCRIPTING_flags are set to ON.
import pcbnew; print pcbnew.PLUGIN_DIRECTORIES_SEARCHand you’ll see a list of folders which pcbnew will search for plugins
I feel the pain :/ I was already freelancing when I took my GCSEs and was forced to do the ICT BTEC you’re probably talking about. It ended up being my worst grade overall because I got so angry with it halfway through and tried (but sadly failed) to fail it on purpose. Plan was that if a job interviewer asked why IT was my lowest grade I would take great pleasure in ripping the course content to shreds.
“Lord, what a thoughtless wretch was I,
To mourn, murmur and repine,
To see the wicked placed on high,
In pride and robes of honour shine.
But oh their end, their dreadful end,
Thy sanctuary taught me so,
On slippery rocks I see them stand,
And fiery billows roll below.”

It’s number 183 in the 1991 Sacred Harp, if you feel like singing it to suitably epic music.
tcpdump, a very handy little command line utility for looking at network traffic. Not as fully featured as Wireshark, but nice if you want to e.g. pipe network traffic into another process. It’s also not >300MB :/
ORVILLE […] is a very nice and cool mouse
When using the python2.7 gzip module with StringIO, it’s extremely important to call
GzipFile.close() after you’ve finished writing to it. If you don’t, the archive will probably not be readable as the CRC record will not be appended, and you’ll get a bunch of IOErrors despite everything looking fine.
Amazon.com product question humour finds its way to some unexpected products…
According to this clock, it is always 11/12 likely to be one o’clock, and 1/12 likely to be two o’clock
I tried to plug in this LED strip I bought but nothing happens. 5400 LEDs but none of them turn on?! and when I tried to peel the backing off to stick it to something, all the LEDs fell out D: 0/10 would not buy again
Finally arrived at #35C3 in Leipzig! Is anyone else I know here?
This time of year is perfect for burning the old and making way for the new. Merry Christmas 🔥
