New Covid variant is looking especially bad.
Huh. I think I misunderstood that popular boomer-share-of-wealth chart too! https://economistwritingeveryday.com/2021/09/01/who-is-the-wealthiest-generation/
"Never trust a programmer who says he knows C++"
I started C++ yesterday (embedded, for my e-ink display), and while I'm enjoying using classes, I can feel what a complex beast the language is. Absolutely ridiculous coming from something like Go.
I'll be using anyascii for my e-ink display code. It's fantastic project that aims to provide conversions for all of Unicode into ASCII. It's implemented in tons of programming languages too! Useful for usecases like mine, where only ASCII fonts are supported.
@aw I'm happy with all the fancy Python stuff, but I think what Go does is interesting and useful as well. Haven't had much opportunity to make my own OOP structures in Go with inheritance, but thanks to the standard library I've seen how useful things like io.Writer are. No experience with Rust.
I suppose I am thinking mostly about inheritance, as if you aren't thinking about that then you can do most things with structs.
I have ordered the Inkplate 10, an e-ink display with built-in ESP32. Very excited!
Inkplate e-ink display
@kelbot Inkplate 10 looks like the best I've seen on the market. The integrated ESP32 and buttons is so cool. Battery power, partial refresh, it's got so much. The refresh rate is way better than Waveshare and the size is not much smaller.
I've never coded for an ESP32 before but wanted to, so that'll be fun. Unfortunately I already wrote >1400 lines of Python for the Waveshare display lol, so I'll have to think about how to port that.
Forgot to include the link to the bad displays: https://www.waveshare.com/product/displays/e-paper/12.48inch-e-paper-module-b.htm
Looking for an e-ink display!
I have bought two of these large 12in e-ink displays from WaveShare, and both of them didn't work :(
Thankfully got refunds, but I still want a damn display! Anyone have suggestions for where I can get a decently large one? WaveShare seems like the best place but I don't feel like I can give them more of money at this point.
