This is about hacking, in both the meanings explained in the following quote:
"It’s called a hack when you do something in an ugly way. But when you do something so clever that you somehow beat the system, that’s also called a hack.
The word is used more often in the former than the latter sense, probably because ugly solutions are more common than brilliant ones.
Believe it or not, the two senses of “hack” are also connected. Ugly and imaginative solutions have something in common: they both break the rules."
Paul Graham - Hackers and painters
That’s the thing. I’m breaking the fucking rules here.
Someone, who cares?1
I have a Masters Degree on Telecommunications Engineering (it’s kind of an EEE).
Until now, my whole career have been in the IT word and related with Research and Development. I have no professional experience with Electronics.
There’s an email address you can write to:
English is not my mother tongue, I am not even good at communicating at it.
I make this in English, first, because I want to improve my communication and, second, because I want this to arrive as far as possible. I think the technical detail level I am going to put in here and the way I explain stuff is really hard to find even in English speaking places.
In other projects I made I wrote in my mother language because I thought there were many places offering the same in English but a few in my language and I wanted to fill the gap.
In this case I think the gap is bigger. We need to make this more common.
I felt this gap when I started to make my own projects. I only found two kind of places on the Internet:
Very detailed places explaining stuff in a very complex way. Academic articles, application notes or datasheets, for example.
Places with copy-paste tutorials and simple explanations. Blogs, for example.
This place tries to explain technical stuff in a normal way. Help people to understand academic things, datasheets and such.
I like to swear because it fits perfectly with the way I am. I get mad easily and I free the pressure and the anger by swearing.
Sometimes swearing represents stuff the way it is.
Going back to the first question, it’s also a way to break the rules.
I’m not trying hard to hide my identity but you shouldn’t care about it neither.↩︎
