I'm Building a New Computer... On Breadboards?!

Huh?! What?! You may be asking. Yup! I'm building a new computer on breadboards. So far it's been a pretty educational project and this post goes into what the project is and many of the things I've learned so far!

Continuing with running Rust on the PX-HER0. In this post I start reading button inputs as well as starting an abstraction layer to make working with buttons and LEDs easier.

Rust on PX-HER0 - Part 1

The PX-HER0 is an STM32-based board designed for learning embedded development. Since I've been so interested in this area for a long time I decided to pick one up and get Rust running on it!

Yes, Let's Talk About Mental Health.

This entry was originally one I posted on my work blog in response to someone posting a blog post titled "Let's Talk About Mental Health..." to their own work blog. It talked about their struggle with depression and I was really moved by seeing someone being open about their own mental health issues. I think it's important to be open about the topic, so I started writing a comment on their post about my own experiences. As I was writing it, though, I realized it was getting long and I should just post it to my own blog because I didn't want to distract from theirs.
