@mansr memcpy is evil, but ... “Found that a function called memcpy was the culprit, most memory players use memcpy and this is one of the reasons why memory play sounds worse ie digital sounding. Fortunately there is an optimised version of memcpy from [x], using this version removes the hard edge produced by memcpy.”

Kids: this is the year you finally pull the elf down off the shelf and show it what happens to snitches.

@mansr thoughts on "burn in". Is this actually a thing or just more audiofoolness?

The EEZ Bench Box 3 is such a beautiful open hardware modular bench power supply! I'm in awe. Their documentation is simply perfect: envox.hr/eez/eez-bench-box-3/i (see the sidebar for details on its components)

I need this in my lab.

They run a crowdsupply campaign: crowdsupply.com/envox/eez-bb3

Building a 3 m^3, 3 bay compost bin because why the F not. Also we have crappy clay soil that needs to be supplemented with lots of organic material.

Next step canning in freezer safe canning jars for double preservation (3x if you include vinegar).

Fun fact: you can't name any file anywhere in windows 10 "aux.txt" or "aux" anything with any extension, because it was a reserved name in CP/M before dos was a thing.

If you commit "aux.txt" to a git repo, you break it for windows users. If you distribute "aux.txt" in a zip file, windows computers cannot extract it without error.
