It’s almost Christmas again, so it’s time for the annual nerdhut.de Christmas letter and stats report. You may have noticed that I broke this tradition last year as I honestly didn’t want to look back at 2020. At that point, I and many others have hoped that the corona-virus pandemic would be over by 2021. Unfortunately, that was a bit too optimistic, as it turned out. Either way, let’s focus on the positive things and have a look back at the stats of 2020 and 2021!
As some of you might know, the Simpsons are among my favorite TV shows, and I’ve featured the show on this blog before. While I mostly prefer watching the older episodes, I sometimes check out the newer ones as well. So, in the spirit of Halloween, I decided to watch every single Simpsons Halloween special and give you a rundown of my favorite episodes.
As much as I love writing long and detailed articles about complex projects, those take a long time to finish. Unfortunately, I often end up procrastinating a bit more than necessary before I get some articles done. In those longer articles, I often discuss several topics that are relevant but not directly related to the projects themselves. For example, I sometimes discuss a power supply design or a software design pattern in one part of a longer series. However, to prevent me from procrastinating too much and to make it easier for you, new readers, and search engines, I decided to publish at least one short article each week. These shorter articles discuss a single topic in as much detail as needed using as few words as possible. I’ll keep working on longer and more elaborate projects in the meantime!
This video takes a look at the Seeedstudio XIAO board. In it, I unbox the device, take a look around it, assemble it, and I also show you how to prepare the Arduino IDE to get the XIAO up and running in no time!
Just like the snow in GTA Online, the annual Christmas letter on nerdhut is back! This year was the best one so far for this website, which means that this streak goes on since 2016. Let me quickly go over some facts for this year and highlight some goals, that got achieved in 2019!
This is not the type of article that I usually publish on this website but I simply couldn’t find a good trophy guide for Fallout76, an online RPG. So I thought it was time to put some tips and tricks together to help others who might not know how to get a certain trophy in the game.
