Anyone else interested in electronics around these parts? I have some experience with making my own (simple-ish) circuits and fiddling with microcontrollers, and I've found it to be a ton of fun. I should get around to getting a bunch of assorted electronics junk so I can start tinkering with stuff at home as well, I've got plans for a couple of gadgets of varying usefulness.

In the end this is anecdotal, but I find electronics to be one of the cheaper hobbies to get into.
What do you really need in terms of tools to get started?
A soldering iron
Solder + Flux
(Good investment is a multimeter)
That's it in terms of tools. A bad (but working) version will cost you 20-30$. If you want a decently good setup (what I use I would describe as decent) is 120$ for soldering iron, solder, flux and multimeter. That's not very expensive as far as hobbies go.
Then the "running cost" will be the cost of the parts you use. Again, how wild you want to go is up to you. If you want a cheap project, that's a arduino nano (2$/piece), wire, sensors (~1-2$/sensor) and depending on application actors (starting at 3$/piece). Of course things can be more expensive depending on your project. If you buy parts from aliexpress etc. in packs of 5-10 they are dirt cheap.

Overall hobby electronics seem cheap in terms of upfront cost and only middle of the pack in terms of running cost.

And as >>781 said, if there's a makerspace, you can basically save the cost for tools. Also tools double as … well tools. Having a multimeter is a good idea either way to repair stuff in the house, and a solder iron can save you hundreds of dollars when you fix something that is broken.

Arduino is a great platform. It's cheap, open source, versatile, easy to get into, yet close enough to the chipset that it helps you if you ever want to go into designing your own boards / design actual products you have a foundation to build upon. Learning how to implement a control algorithm in arduino is surprisingly close to doing so in a product later.
Can't beat having a decently powerful chip for 2$ that you can do so much with.

When done, please do share. I love hearing about other peoples projects and indeed collect pictures of them for motivation/inspiration.

It'll be fun. As someone in a EE degree (EE+business), it's really cool if you also do it as a hobby. Knowing what you are learning things for and how to apply it is such an advantage.

Hey EEfriends. I agree about it being a great cheap hobby (if you know the tricks), when I was younger and living somewhere it was hard to order components online I got really good at getting components off old household stuff. Recycling!

Today I whipped out my old Arduinos and ordered some new components to start programming an info display/controller for my cars hybrid electric system, since our forum's resident expert just did a PoC and I thought I'd have a go before I bought one off him.
I'll also be rigging up a trickle charger to balance the Hybrid batteries cells off mains using some LED drivers.
Later in the year I'm thinking of replacing the Ni-MH battery with a custom Lithium one. Buy individual 3.2V Lithium pouch cells -> build (3d print?) a frame for them -> slap 35 together = brand new drop in battery.
You can even add more cells in series and get a higher total voltage, which in combination with some spoofing tricks allows you to push a more total KW through to the motor with the car being none the wiser.

That aside here's some pics from a year ago of soldering my keyboard together (bonus Sushi themed keycaps). Soldering is so fun, I've missed it a lot.

Really cool keyboard sushi, love it.
As for 3d printing, as long as the enclosure isn't supposed to protect the cells from mechanical forces it's a great use case. I've been starting to use 3d printing more and more for enclosures for electronics projects.

Want to run a website? cool! you can set one up in minutes.

>very limited 4GB of space to fulfill its destiny
Are you sure it's not a DVD+RW or something? CDs shouldn't have more than 700MB and are read-only.
Assuming you mean you want to do a live CD install the vast majority of distros are less than 2GB and plenty are less than 1GB but to boot on multiple architectures you'd need a separate partition for each version which you probably don't have space for and partitioning optical discs isn't much of a thing.
If all you want is to be 1337 I guess you could put Kali with xfce on there, though to rice it you'd probably want a liveUSB instead for the persistence.

Yeah its an optical disk/DVD+RW.

> Assuming you mean you want to do a live CD install the vast majority of distros are less than 2GB and plenty are less than 1GB

I've already tried persistent live CD's with most normal distros and its been unable to handle the brunt well. The goal of this project is to follow the philosophy that every KB counts.

> boot on multiple architectures you'd need seperate partitons

aren't there hardware-detecting boot partitions that allow you to boot a given system? I understand that for some programs the assembly instructions/byte code won't be the same so there will have to be concerns in that regard, but limiting it to just those three archetectures I'm sure that I can find a way with a script to link the correct binaries to /usr/bin for the given hardware (I just don't know how to do so).

I certainly would want a liveUSB image (which I assume can run on floppies and DVD's). Don't really need kali, This system is still a 'hacker' system if it has basics like netcat, john the ripper, and some programming language environments (python, c compilers, linkers, assemblers).

If it's too much hassle I can reduce it to just x86_64 since that is currently the most common hardware architecture.

 No.1737

>>1736
I mean a liveUSB install, not the image (which is usually the same either way). Rewritable DVDs are a lot less reliable and can be written to far fewer times without errors and failures than USB drives. They're really not good for persistent installs.

>unused DVD+RW named hack
You sure it´s not just empty rather than unused?
If you didn´t write over it yet you could probably recover the actual “hack” files with file recovery software.
But as a tip for distro, easiest if it´s already molded for liveboot use, maybe something like Slax.

The spookiness is very comfy. It feels as if it has a flavor simultaneously creepy and sweet, both something joyously macabre and an unsettling delicacy. I've been experimenting with something similar to cultdeadcow.com where the main art is done in pre tags. I quite like the look and flair ones site gets from this style of art. Pic related is my work. It's three pre tags positioned to layer on top of each other. The frame, the middle layer done in block characters and the topmost drawn in ASCII. Currently getting back into the swing of things by finishing my personal site. I'm quite enjoying the self-imposed challenge of drawing the site windows this way. Will post it once its hosted.

For the past few months I've dreamed of becoming a grey-hat security researcher, an sushi rollymous hacking guru who knows how to construct exploits, who routinely scans websites for vulns, who knows how to decipher a stack-trace in gdb. It took a couple of months and some vain attempts to realise, like you have, that actually "hacking" is not my passion, but rather an idealised, renegade aesthetic that I want to inhabit without putting in the years of effort which it requires.

Let's talk coding and software, sushis, because I don't do enough of it and I really should. Let's hear about projects you're working on, stuff your coding, learning. Trade secrets, info, tips, whatever. Programming isn't something that should be done alone in a corner.

I guess if we need a thread starter, I want to brush up on my coding skills. I want to find something to play around with, something not as mainstream as the stuff like Java and C, but will still be useful in a professional setting, something I can make usable stuff out of.

That's all that matters.

I remember a lot of small "fun" software that would be mildly annoying/I considered funny, that I used on my own pc to look what would happen.

One was a cmd script that would just open itself and calculators until the pc crashed. Most people didn't know about ctrl+c at that time. I used it on an exhibit pc during a convention, a security dude (who had no understanding of computers) saw it and proceeded to beat me up for it. He never pressed charges or anything, once he thought I was sufficiently dealt with he just told me to fuck off. In retrospect I did deserve it if I'm honest.
