        An essential for the engineer is a decent caliper, to measure dimensions with reasonable accuracy. Some of us have old-fashioned Vernier scales, while many up-to-date versions are electronic. When entering large numbers of dimensions into a CAD package matters can become a little tedious, so the fancier versions have connectivity for automatic reading transfer.

In that case, you might have reached for a “trainer”: a PCB that included the chip you wanted to program along with an array of switches, LEDs, and maybe even a hex keypad for good measure. Grab yourself the programming manual (printed on paper, naturally), and you’re good to go.

Once touted by many politicians and major corporations, DEI (diversity, equity, and inclusion) is now a "dirty" topic an increasing number of businesses are staying out of. There was a time when Corporate America had an influence even in deep red states (think of, in 2015, how North Carolina quickly backtracked on the infamous "bathroom bill" when several major companies decided to pull their business out of the state). Now they are on the defensive in the face of the "anti-woke" movement in the Republican Party epitomized by Florida governor Ron DeSantis.

My webpage for amateur radio is pretty "old school" with no JS, very little CSS and all generated using Linux command line tools. As I never remember to update it I thought I might as well make the transition to just use Gemini and point my gemini to http proxy and all is good.

        The issue is I already have this capsule running on my VPS where I also host that page. I could use a different port but that is always sucks. Similar to how hosting multiple sites on a single box, I found that you can use nginx to proxy incoming connections based on the SSL cert used and direct them to a specific server. Setup multiple gemini servers on different ports and now I have both pages working:
