Re: The Anti-Vax debate

A point someone else made that has really stuck with me regarding anti-vax idiots: They'd rather their child died of a preventable disease than be autistic/disabled/whatever. Says a lot frankly.

Re: Anti SJW thread and/or alt right neo nazis

Extremely face plan. I have a work mate who goes on about political correctness this, PC that. It grinds my gears. I think it was Bill Bailey who said "when I was a boy we called political correctness 'being polite'".

Re: The Trivial Irritations Thread

Tumblr's a great place for funny shit and some mid-tier social commentary but don't take it too seriously.

We've got one of these Hakko soldering stations at work and it's the best shit - http://au.element14.com/hakko/fx-888d/s ... dp/2280753
A bit expensive but I've repeatedly soldered tiny tiny 1mm or less wires without drama. I've used it for surface mount parts even.

Re: Raspberry pi

New wireless enabled Pi Zero model now! Looks pretty cool and only $10 USD but extremely hard to get hold of due to limited stock etc. I'm pretty keen to play with one though. Currently using 5 raspberry pi's in a distributed cluster for robotics control for my undergrad thesis.

Good vid! Rad that he can actually talk about it. Some of the questions seemed a bit... "101 what is gay"? But then I guess maybe most skater bros are a bit homophobic or don't have any gay friends.
