Just saw this article come up thanks to #womenshistorymonth. I watch a lot of documentaries and such like on the space race (including the fantastic film, Hidden Figures. If you haven't seen it, watch it!), but the women who literally wove the programs into modules are just mentioned in passing.
This article goes into a bit more detail and celebrates the incredible work they did.
Getting ready to do another batch of #astropixels
20 sets put together and tested, just have 60 HP lights to solder up and test and then I'll get them boxed and put up on my store.
The HPs are a time consuming pain, but hopefully they won't take too long.
Might clear up as the Pi warms the enclosure up. Amazed its actually working to be honest, its been sat on a pole outside my garage for nearly two years now. (last powered up March 2021!)

Life long #geek, more recently a #droidbuilder and #maker. Been into computers since a young age, now working as a solutions architect using #python to automate everything. I tend to stay away from politics so my feed is usually just things I make with an occasional link to interesting articles and such like.
Based in the North West of the UK. I have been following the whole distributed social media experiment with interest since the early days of Diaspora. I'm hoping that Elon has unwittingly helped us all out and done a good thing for the internet.

Second half is printing now, should be done in a day or so and I'll do the same to that, then put the two halves together and the circle panels on to do the whole thing at once.

A few weeks back I wrote a post listing all my @Raspberry Pi :raspberrypi: projects. I may be the reason for the supply shortage. :P
To paraphrase a certain chocolate egg marketing campaign:
How do you use yours?
