Decode/Analyse the following UART signals

I have sent a 2 and a 9 using UART. The baud rate is 9600, there is no parity, and it has 8 data bits. As we know 9 is represented as 1001 in binary. However, this is what I get from my UART signal: A 2 is represented as 0010 but this is what […]

How balanced and clear is my Arcane Luthier subclass for the Artificer

I’ve long been disappointed by how brief and largly meaningless D&D 5e’s handling of musical instruments is. Bards can use them as spellcasting focuses, but other than that, there’s not much to them. Hardly anyone has a reason to play a musical instrument for any length of time, nor does it really matter much if […]

How to decide which key was pressed on a calculator?

Hi all, I’m trying have an arduino read key presses on my calculator. The calculator does it by pressing the keyboard membrane to the PCB and connecting two points, so each key has two of these points. I’ve soldered wires to two key’s contact points(four wires in total), and connected the arduino’s GND to the […]

How do i get to the inside of the cave thing in mafia town?

In Mafia Town there’s many fancy-looking doors leading to the center of the island and is also what i assume to be the source of the geyser keeping the mini island afloat. I’m able to get a quick peek inside by blasting through a few cannons that lead to the other side of the island, […]

Desktop hung up / freeze. GpuWatchdog segfault. nvidia_frontend_close

This is with (K)Ubuntu 20.04, KDE with Plasma, Nvidia 2070. I can still move the mouse around, but other than that, there is no reaction on clicks, and no window content gets updated. The system is still running. I can access it via SSH. dmesg: [27014.327443] NVRM: GPU at PCI:0000:09:00: GPU-00ebafba-eb00-ee69-eba0-3c804c97f796 [27014.327446] NVRM: GPU Board […]

How to Convert Alternity Character to High-Level D&D 5e Character?

I’m wanting to do my best to create a level 15-20 ish D&D 5e character heavily based on a high-level character from Alternity. I do not mind if it’s based more on the newer (2017) version of Alternity or the older (1997) version (or both). I’ve done some basic perusing through various forums and wiki’s […]

reasons for laptop shutting down

I have a laptop running Arch that I’ve been using for about 3 years now. Admittedly, I’m a bit sloppy on system updates, but it’s in great shape aside from a few quirks with the graphics driver. This changed overnight yesterday. Somehow, the laptop shuts down spontaneously in very short intervals, to the point where […]
