I feel that not a lot of people are taking advantage of the profile background feature, probably because they don't know what to put there. So the other day I thought that since a desk or workbench usually is pretty wide a picture of it would be great for that, plus it's very personalized/individual/unique.
On my profile you can see my mess (that I might change from time to time), now show me yours! :)

Inspired by some other non Christmas themed cookies my family made I was struck with an idea...
A spare/unused one of these:

Inspired by #ESPecially Easy AVR Programming I started playing around with ESP-Link a bit. As mentioned in the readme you can point some programs (e.g. Avrdude, PuTTY) directly at the ESP8266's telnet socket but as far as I can tell most others (e.g. Termite, Arduino, ESPlorer) will only work with serial ports. Therefore a tunnel from a virtual serial port to the ESP's telnet port is required.
Some quick googling revealed com0com/com2tcp and socat should accomplish just that on Windows and Linux, respectively. It wasn't immediately obvious to me how to set up com0com so I made a detour over this other program also called COM2TCP. It was really easy to set up and worked right out of the box but unfortunately free usage is limited to 45 days so I went back and decided to figure out com0com.Read more

Regarding David's PCB fabrication process (for #DNA-LAMP Diagnostic Device) I asked if he tried using the black spray paint also as solder mask. While he doubted the paint would survive the soldering temperatures I thought it would. Of course this depends on the type of spray paint (and probably other variables), but I was just curious to see if the cheapest one from my local hardware store would be up to the task. Therefore, in order to find out if spray paint is a viable candidate for cheap and easy DIY solder mask I did a quick and dirty test to see how the paint behaves when heated to typical soldering temperatures and this is the result:
