I've entered #rain-psc in the 2018 Hackaday prize. I don't expect to take the grand prize (competition isn't really my thing) but if I can place it will go a long way to funding my work (which is most necessary to make the jump to RISC-V).
If you have a few minutes, check it out and give it a "skull" :)
@jjg I've considered entering the Kestrel Computer Project as well, but it's such a generic project (literally tons of homebrew computers on Hackaday's site), I would have virtually no chance of winning anything at all.
@vertigo I've tried to enter something each year if only to encourage me to get better at promoting my work.
I've never won anything before, but I did get a cool t-shirt one year :)
@jjg I'd be happy with a t-shirt. ;)
@vertigo thank-you sir!
@jjg Skulled it!
@nonlinear thank you for your support!
@jjg To me it looks like your case is paying respect to the Altair, well done.
@Kensan thank-you! I owe a lot to the micros of the 70’s and I’ve always found them beautiful.
Seemed like a fitting way to convey the internal state of the machine as well as a nod to its ancestors.
social.coop is a a coop-run corner of the fediverse, a cooperative and transparent approach to operating a social platform. We are currently closed to new memberships while we improve our internal processes and policies, and plan to re-open to new folks when that work is complete. [9/2/2018]
