[Dprglist] Personal Robotics on Discord

For the past several weeks I've been chatting with people on Discord,
an online chat community. I joined because Seon Rozenblum had set up
a channel to discuss his TinyPICO and FeatherS2 ESP32 boards, and I
ended up joining the Python and Raspberry Pi channels as well. It's
as with any chat board sometimes a bit noisy (though you can mute
individual channels), but I've also received help as well as provided
some too. Discord was originally created for the gaming community,
but it's expanded well beyond that.

Yesterday I searched around and was somewhat surprised that I couldn't
find anything related to Personal Robotics, just some of the commercial
companies' competition servers.  Since it costs nothing to create a
server I went ahead and did:

   Personal Robotics

The above link is good for 7 days; after that just email me and I'll
send you an invite.

I've set up channels for hardware, software, programming, help, etc.
Please feel free to join, and to pass along the link to others,
particularly other robot groups, the more the merrier!

You can open Discord in a web browser (at https://discord.com/) but
there are Discord apps for all major operating systems as well as for
iPhones and Android.

And of course, if you have any suggestions they are always welcome.

     In the evening
     The rice leaves in the garden
     Rustle in the autumn wind
     That blows through my reed hut.
