Welcome to a pretty boring episode - just as you're used to by now! Prepare yourself for epic or less epic talk about a mains test jig that proved very useful, some awesome Probe Master DMM probes well worth the money, and both me and occasional cohost Domen fixing household stuff, and the subtle psychology of starting a repair. Homebrew-wise, the …
 
The thrilling tale of 4 months of doing pretty much nothing interesting is coming to a podcast near you today! After hearing about the hilarious exploding electrolytic, we continue with some lame or slightly-less-lame tools one can just buy off-the-shelf: using H-field probes for injecting magnetic fields into a PCB, the Aim-TTi I-prober 520 for me…
 
In this time of global turmoil, the CBA Podcast once again proves to be your one-stop source of distraction and meh-grade information. We start off by a quick list of how to keep busy in a sort of useful way, followed by a short talk about a 230 Vac test-jig and designing for test-jig repairability. Already mentioned in a previous episode, I finall…
 
4.5 months is still not enough to make you forget this podcast, is it? (And also, sorry about the long gap.) Another mixed bag as usual. 2 meetups with the CBA Quality Team for some Quality Time. Eindhoven Hackerspace Hackalot moved to a new location, and I put some LED decorative stuff there, making use of a light intensity curve for a better visu…
 
Hi there! Thanks for tuning in (or reading this text and then deciding not to tune in at all). Another episode with a mixed bag of semi-interesting topics. Thanks for the feedback - the inter-segment jingle will be a bit less loud from now on. Poor ears. We start off by counting pass & fail on this year's new year's resolutions, followed by mention…
 
You thought that we finally learned from our mistakes and abandoned this podcast, and you thought wrong. Once again it's time to lower your standards, and enjoy a new episode of the CBA Podcast. We start with some PCB failures and flaws, followed by a very brief review of the Hackalot lasercutter & vinylcutter workshop. We attended T-DOSE, which is…
 
After more than 1 month of laziness, let's kickstart this episode with some failures and apologies. Next up is a summary of Hackalot's part in the Open Hackerspace Day 2019, and a teardown of a cheap and somewhat boring Aldi 230 Vac LED lamp. Finally, some very-voodoo and somewhat-less-voodoo methods of measuring the percentage of bodyfat in humans…
 
After 5 weeks or so, we're finally back! You'd think this episode is filled with 5 weeks worth of exciting techie stuff, but don't get your hopes up yet. Because it's not. Domen joins in to talk about his experiments with home automation, and a sowing exhibition lacking electronics and software. Furthermore, we talk about a disco LED box hack, and …
 
Finally, the "we" in announcements doesn't just mean the royal we / majestic plural, but there's an actual co-host! Introduction is in the audio contents, so I guess you'll just have to listen. We talk about first contact with the Rust programming language, coroutines for implementing lightweight tasks/threads, various smaller topics and some upcom…
 
HNY2019! Not a whole lot of stuff to talk about, so this is quite a short episode. You're welcome. After some fluffy and unrelated list of New Year's Resolutions, we talk about progress for a decorative VGA generator device w.r.t. mechanics and software. I had never been to the monthly HCC!programmeren meeting, so let's talk a bit about that a bit …
 
Apologies for the apparently low volume and low tone of voice - I think someone might have been tired. This episode discusses ongoing PCB failures, oscilloscope overdrive recovery, a BT-enabled headphone that would just keep connecting, some local events (GLOW, Awesome Space repair day, and the HCC Retro quarterly meeting). Finally, an experiment g…
 
Yay, after one year we're still polluting the virtual airwaves, so let's review the last year of podcasting (only takes about 8 minutes - don't cry). RetroChallenge RC2018/09 has finished, so we take a look at its winners and honourable mentions. Minor topics include a Hackalot visit, USB nullmodem hack, breadboard fail and fried scope probe clip. …
 
Lots of little topics this time, woven together by clever commentary. That's CBA Podcast for you. In the spotlight this time: a shout-out to the Quality Team behind this podcast, impressions from the recent Eindhoven Maker Faire, HCC Retro and Bonami Homecomputer visits, a look back at the current (finished?) RetroChallenge, how to learn Ruby, a DI…
 
You can, of course, send feedback to the show using the email-adress listed at the top of the page. Today's episode briefly touches on PCB-cleaning, meta- and actual work for the RetroChallenge 2018/09, scripting-languages (again - a never-ending story), and upcoming local events. Relevant links: RetroChallenge 2018/09 Electrolube SWAS flux-cleaner…
 
Just back from the ElectroMagnetic Fields (EMF) camp in the UK, so there's a little review of that. Furthermore, we talk about a LED-strip decoration, badge-sized mini-version of an 1-bit CPU, PCB-failures (and successes!), the upcoming RetroChallenge and my entry for that, and 2 small talks I can now get nervous about. Links and shownotes: Electro…
 
Recorded from my cellphone + external mic this time, so feedback w.r.t. sound-quality (or anything else!) is welcome, as usual. This episode is about getting a new solder-iron tip for the TS100 iron, progress for hand-milling PCB's, a look inside a small MP3-player, and looking at how WS281x works and how to control it. Links: Miniware TS100 solder…
 
To counter the evil midsummer heat, we bring you another cool and refreshing episode. Topics include a 45 Vdc SMD LED, DIN-rail prototyping, reconsidering the workings of a previously disassembled coffee-machine, getting zapped by a vintage coffee-grinder, and an unused yet brand new angle-grinder. Also, I am currently too lazy to make show-notes.…
