the amazing thing about the new star wars movie is that... 

the witcher on netflix is proof that good and well written video-game TV shows or movies can exist.

it's just sad I won't be able to experience all of the 400 side quests on screen

last dnd session:

the party goes on a quest to defeat the giants as the chosen ones!

they find out the guy who told them they are the chosen ones has been talking out of his ass because he's desperate

also a red dragon named klauth hands out christmas presents

@cult a familiar problem.
and tnx, capasitor god! ))

2/x: why capacitors are dangerous:

a battery has a current limit, largely dictated by the chemistry. If it gives more current either the voltage drops or the battery sets itself on fire

a cap has no such limit. if a cap is shorted, the only limit to current is the resistance in the wire. If it stores 10V and the wire has 1mOh, the current will be 10kA. Nothing will stop that current from flowing. The wire will carry that energy until it evaporates. And in less than a few milliseconds, the energy has been dissipated and it's over. 10V at 10kA means in that time your cap is outputting 100 kilowatts of energy. Of course, the stored energy is only a few joules but for watts what matters is the time it takes to run through that.

also this fried my outdoor sensor. gonna have to build a new one.

me: *shorts supercap array*

wires: *vaporize*
solder points: *become liquid*
wire cutter: *welds shut*

and this, children, is why you always respect capacitors. never forget to make an offering to the capacitor god before lunch or else you'll have your day ruined as well

they also bought a laser pointer to use on the tabaxi player

last dnd session:

"you wake up covered in spiders"

*internal screaming*

The plot twist is that I am playing an arachnophobic drow.

The session will forever remain burned into my memory as the perfect opportunity to say "this is literally the worst possible thing that could have happened"

correction of my last toot: 0.5mV/s not 0.5V/s, the difference between a lab supply and a dinky solar panel from ebay

I finished my solar powered energy harvester, gonna let the supercaps charge up in the sunlight for a bit before I connect the main show, but looking good (about 0.5V/s charge rate with 20F capacity up to 4.2V)

"Wait that's a war crime, you can't do that!"

"You're one to talk, you did more of them"

this week on Doctor Stone: stone-philia and saturn

the better moment is that they're being arrested for warcrimes unrelated to the warcrimes they actually committed

the best DM moments are when you have the entire party arrested for war crimes. feels good

got some of those steel spikes to prevent pidgeons from landing on the balcony

the little pests have been leaving their waste all over it and I'm sick of it.
