arossDOTmelooking at the NN innards photos on the wiki. Could my mic interference problem be partly from the mic being right next to the lcd cable?04:57
wpwrakgrmbl. router crashed. it does that infrequently enough that i usually don't check for it before resetting that poor innocent gateway pc on the other end.09:47
wpwrakwell, switch, not router09:49
Fallenou_arossDOTme: you can try disabling the screen while recording to see if there are still interferences18:26
Fallenou_I guess there must be a sysfs command to disable LCD output18:29
