I managed to get the d-pad of my Retroflag #GPiCase working again. It turns out it wasn't a hardware connection issue as I initially thought; it was due to its firmware which has two input mode: axis & hat. #RecalBox expects the axis mode. https://droix.co.uk/knowledge-base/article/how-to-switch-input-modes-on-retroflag-gpi-case/
The board I designed using #LibrePCB is finally on my workbench, it was produced and assembled by PCBWay. This is an expansion card for any SBC with a RPi-compatible GPIO header. It can multiplexe USB 2.0, HDMI 2.0, Gigabit Ethernet signals, and it has a couple of relais to switch power/pin state. We are using this kind of hardware to validate SBCs using other SBCs 😅
I built a random generator in wood during this rainy day... Of course this #diy kit is not cryptographically secure 😅
Quote: "The RP2040 Stamp is a hand-solderable SMD/TH module by Solder Party / arturo182 that integrates the Raspberry Pi RP2040 MCU with 8MB of FLASH, an LDO, LiPo charge management (including a charge LED), a reset button, and a Neopixel. It breaks out all the GPIOs as well as USB, SWD, BOOTSEL, RST, and the voltage pins."

Thanks to the documentation and the sources provided by @mntmn, it was easy to get #QMK working on the MNT Reform #mechanicalkeyboard -> https://github.com/qmk/qmk_firmware/pull/15561 OLED display and backlight work like a charm.
The original #firmware was great, but I need sticky keys and layers for my workflow.

20 years ago, on the first of August, the inception of a language started to, well, incept [...] [This #programming language] is now called Raku [...] To celebrate this part of the history and the people that brought us where we are now, starting tomorrow, we’ll publish 20 articles, one a day, that will focus on one or a few RFCs and show what they eventually became in today’s Raku. So come back every day for a piece of Raku, of history, and of #rakulang history!
One thing that almost bothers me more than anything else is this Apple rejection is proof of how the open internet is dead. Apple cannot comprehend the idea of content being played in different apps. They only see content and apps being owned and operated by the same people.
There’s no more “use whatever client you like”, it’s “You want to listen to X, you use X app” just like “You want to watch Hulu? Use Hulu. Want to watch Netflix? Use Netflix.”
I wrote a blog post about connecting hardware to the #pinephone pogo pins :)
