so now that I'm getting more into pcb design, I *really* need similar quotes on mine.
suggestions and boosts highly welcome!!

@f0x from the link : "Make yourself comfortable, Hacker. Stay a while." awesome

@f0x "This was a triumph. I'm making a note here: huge success."

@f0x good quotes in "Soul of a New Machine", too.

Oh, and The Devil's DP¹ Dictionary by Stan Kelly-Bootle!

¹: "data processing"

@f0x
They said whatever man builds, he can destroy. You have no hope of destroying us.

Your knowledge is a delusion. Your thoughts are but a grain of sand in the universe.

You think you can extract knowledge from me? You naive child. You'll destroy the very secrets you seek.

You think you're a god, huh? Too feeble to even deserve pity.

@f0x This reminds me of how integrated circuit designers would add doodles to their designs in silicon.

@faehnrich me and friends sorta went further on this, making things with the pcb as the art medium, instead of just hidden internals.
tilde.industries/watch-dial/ for example doesn't even have electronics :P
for social.pixie.town/@f0x/1034024 I made routing way harder by keeping basically the whole front empty to put art in the copper layer

@f0x omg that's beautiful. would love to know how to do all that

@faehnrich as someone who only got into pcb design very recently, it's not *that* hard. Kicad can be a bit rough but is good free software, with a bunch of video tutorials around to show you around.

Then for the artsy stuff it's importing designs made in inkscape, and assigning them to the right layers to get the desired effect. due to a pcb's layered design you have some combinations of colour and height

@f0x A bit dated, but "All your base are belong to us." is always good.

Or even better... "Move zig for great justice."

"First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin."

"Quantum mechanics: The dreams that stuff is made of."

"Nine Tesla, and the ghosts were everywhere."

"Purple Tentacle! Stop playing with the lab experiments!"

"Razor and Blade?! They're a bunch'a flakes!"

"To those with the greatest power, protect those without."

"Whether we are based on carbon or silicon makes no fundamental difference."

To boldly go where I surely don't belong!

@f0x I will dedicate a section of my wall to the answers in this thread.
