So, my printer has been broken for about 2 months โ€” keeps saying that there's no paper in the trary โ€” and earlier this week I found a little broken plastic piece nearby where I keep the printer. I flipped the printer upside down, grabbed my krazy glue, and glued the piece back on. Voilรก! Works now. ๐Ÿ™Œ

I face awkward activity within my Epson L3110 printer. It doesn't get power on even after trying a lot. If I can somehow manage to turn on the printer, then it would not get turned off in any way. ๐Ÿ˜…

My partner's PC failed, and it's a small form factor jobbie with a proprietary PSU. Same thing happened to her last one a couple of years ago, those tiny PSUs burn out quite easily especially in a house with pets :)

I had an old regular desktop lying around that just needed a graphics card, so I took her old one from the SFF PC and did something clever: I used snips and pliers and glue to fashion a new back plate for the graphics card so it would fit into a normal height slot without falling out.

I feel like a master engineer now.

Made by submission to Github Actions Hackathon, though not sure if it was a valid submission or not as I'm a beginner with github action but still it's kind of a win for me :)

I started a new project to handle my reading lists, sticked to the concept I had written (this was the first time I had set up clear goals before starting a project), and finished said project which is now online, and handling a bunch of links to articles I need to read! I learnt a lot about API, responsive (mobile first) and storing data.

I have started working on a new language similar to verilog ( for defining logic circuits) but more simpler. I have posted it on the dev, but after working on it for sometime I have came across lot of difficulties. And understood the mistakes in the way I have defined it. Fortunately I have found the solutions for them . And I would mention them in the coming post.
