Hackaday Podcast 163: Movie Sound, Defeating Dymo DRM, 3DP Guitar Neck, Biometrics Bereft Of Big Brother

Join Hackaday Editor-in-Chief Elliot Williams and Assignments Editor Kristina Panos as we spend an hour or so dissecting some of the more righteous hacks and projects from the previous week. We’ll discuss a DIY TPM module that satisfies Windows 11, argue whether modern guts belong in retrocomputer builds even if it makes them more practical, and marvel at the various ways that sound has been encoded on film. We’ll also rock out to the idea of a 3D-printed guitar neck, map out some paths to defeating DYMO DRM, and admire a smart watch that has every sensor imaginable and lasts 36+ hours on a charge. Finally, we’ll sing the praises of RS-485 and talk about our tool collections that rival our own Dan Maloney’s catalogue of crimpers.

  1. The Dymo people now count the number of labels used and once the roll is done. The old chip can not be used to reuse another generic roll of same sized labels. More work needed…

    1. Why are you continuing to reward this company with your business? These are stickers, 100 year old technology that you can reproduce with $10 of laser printer stickers from Staples.

      Maybe you can buy a few thousand dollars more of their stuff while you figure out how to reverse engineer it. Maybe you should just send your paycheck straight to Dymo.

      1. Yes, I feel the same way. Luckily I have an earlier model without DRM, that will not be superseded with and DRM crap. I find it fine for one label, but it is a nuisance to use a page printer to print a single label and then re-inserting the sheet again the next time I need a small parts box label at the next place on the page.

    we must address this in 2022 – as WWW priority cryptographic methods and routines must be engineered, to to be re-arranged in their re-seeding / schemes patterns to have the spatial distance that PQ attacks may harden a system of PQ attacks -dont benefit from in linear time. We need the cryptostack to switch from pool of entropy and accounting mechanisms added to see if certain deterministic properties can be derived from the setup, that a short TTL micro hashing frame of reference is kept for certain context switching witch probabilistic asynchronous ways we now have many implementation that cannot anticipate by design even if configurations of more cryptographic re-hashing have been added, increased cascades are also prone to leak biased bits in the lower bound and initial communications that are vectors for PQ attacks
