I 3D printed a template to old the board and display while I resoldered. Everything seems to be working now.

The battery is a 6Ah battery, which I hope will run the computer for at least six hours on a charge. looking forward to further tests and to printing the case next.

Project 1046: I'm building a tiny computer because why not by Nick

I always wanted to build a computer but it ended up falling by the wayside, and when I started using Macs over a decade ago it no longer seemed necessary.

With the availability of the Radpberry Pi Zero W I thought I finally would, albeit in an unusual manner. I want to built the smallest laptop I can imagine, 3D printing the enclosures. More soon...

New video coming soon for Joe Goodkin's new album "Record of Loss" by Nick

Joe Goodkin's newest album, "Record of Loss," was released this week.  I was honored to collaborate with him again on the music video for the single "Charlie and Roger," which will be released later this month.  Check back here for more information, and in the meanwhile check out his album, which is a moving tribute to the people who come and go in our lives.

There are already reviews coming in as well:

"Heartbreak has no beginning and no end. What Joe Goodkin has done with it is treat it with the respect that it deserves, considering what a sizable role it can play in our lives. He has come up with a song cycle that caresses and soothes the sometimes inevitable pain. In its own way, it is a welcome Valentine unlike any other."  https://parcbench.live/2017/02/11/new-folkrock-joe-goodkin-record-of-loss/

I'm currently obsessed with Neko Atsume for no clear reason by Nick

Neko Atsume is an iPhone app whose whole purpose is to attract cats to your virtual yard.  I still don't fully know how to play the game and there isn't a lick of English in it.  Despite this, I'm addicted.

I've had this app on my phone for two months and find I check it nearly every day, leaving out toys and feeding virtual cats.  It harkens back to Tamagotchi except with even less stakes, and the music is soothing in a bit crush kind of way.

Here's where to find it:
