The Framework laptop is the first laptop to ever score a 10/10 from Ifixit for repairability. But it's no thick-as-a-brick throwback the size of a 2005 Thinkpad - it's approximately the same dimensions as a MacBook.


Out now: ./badges v2.0.0 - A major release with support for parameter declaration and validation (good for building GUIs), improved CLI with stdin/-out support and revised API for use as a library, plus numerous bug fixes. Get it on @codeberg at

Spare part arrived, soldered it back in.
Now comes reassembly, followed by intense praying and tooth-grinding 😜

@mondstern Japp, bei uns (Nürnberger Str.) war der Strom vorhin auch weg.
Aber zum Glück ging's nach ein Paar Minuten schon wieder :-)

I caused quite a bit of damage to the board though, before figuring out how to properly desolder...

A clean soldering tip, adding lots of regular lead-based solder, lots of heat and quick application of the desoldering pump did the trick :-) Once that was figured out, desoldering proceeded very quickly 🥳 Thanks for your advise @nause_marc and @wex !

@nause_marc Yep, that was part of the solution. Thanks for the advice! 👍🙂

@wex Thanks for the recommendation, I know his channel, but more from his right-to-repair advocacy and occasional cameo on the EEVblog :-)

I don't know what I'm doing wrong, but I'm having little to no success with at all. I can't get the solder on the board to melt. My own solder melts just fine. Tried it at higher temperatures (400-450°C) too. Maybe the tip of the iron is too large to be able to reach the very small pads? All I managed is getting off one of the potentiometers, with lots of patience, solder wick and quite a bit of force. At this point, I'm afraid I all but butchered that board 🙈

@miracula Uff, das wäre heftig wenn das stimmt. Bin selbst Vonovia-Mieter, aber zumindest bei uns im Haus käme man "nur" in den Hausgang damit. Angesichts dessen, wie oft hier Hausierer ungestört bis in den 5. Stock spazieren, macht das dann vermutlich auch keinen Unterschied 😜

Disassembling my Xbox controller to replace a faulty joystick. Surprisingly easy to disassemble so far, if we don't count the exotic case screws. Next comes desoldering and then ordering the right spare part.

Aren't you tired from writing your Rust programs in English? Would you like to try something different, exotic and funny? Do you like saying "merde" a lot?

Here's my contribution to solve this problem: Rouille, a French Rust programming language.

Found some time to continue working on ./badges web v2.
In the current snapshot version, it is now possible to edit theme parameters! 🤩
Release coming soon, after some more cleanup and documentation.

@mondstern Hast ja recht, lebenswichtig ist es auf keinen Fall :-)
Es fühlt sich einfach nur etwas falsch/merkwürdig an, wenn - wohlgemerkt gefühlt - im ehemals so offenen und freien Web zunehmend sprichwörtliche Zugbrücken, Schlagbäume, Warnschilder und Marktschreier herum stehen. Von daher finde ich z.B. Gemini auch eine sehr sympathische Idee.

Is it just my perception or have "you have to create an account to continue reading"-style nag screens become more widespread recently?
