Also I'm still logged in to mastodon on my phone from my power outage. That's not helpful. Logging off from here.
Now I'm thinking about a browser extension that makes me justify every clciked link. Like charging it to a project or something I've explicitly indicated as my current priorities. :thonking:
I've really got to stop clicking on links.
So, I'm back from Dune. I took the whole package with 3D glasses, moving/vibrating chair, smoke, smells and other crazy FX stuff.
I had a great time, but the most immersive part of the experience was that I had to wear a face mask the whole time. I felt like a real Fremen.
I don't agree with the English on everything but the idea of having a holiday that is primarily about exploding an effigy of a historical asshole sounds great; we should think about doing that on Columbus Day

Would there be interest in a group buy of a keyboard like this? If there's interest, I can do some cost research and figure out what a good breakeven point would be.

Just finished a Prusa MK3S+ build and here are a few notes:
- the assembly manual is fantastic!
- the online version of the manual is even better (lots of helpful user comments!)
- the cable management is a horror show 😕
- the firmware and wizard are superb and set this printer apart from the competition
- some of the pre-printed parts lacked the quality and accuracy I expected from a Prusa kit
- the gummy bears were delicious
- initial test prints are excellent
- this was so much fun!

I never did end up expanding on this idea, but now that I've gotten some rest, I can.
Why do I think that anti-fascists fly mexican flags in Wenatchee?
Alright, so when I was driving through Wenatchee, I noticed cars driving around with full-sized mexican flags. I took note of it. It's an interesting and weird bit of information. Central Washington is a very long way to go from mexico for a mexican immigrant community to establish itself.
After a few more hours driving west, I finally puzzled through it.
Wenatchee, and the surrounding areas, are orchard country. Wenatchee runs along the Columbia river, and the water there feeds orchards. This area is massively dependent on immigrant labor to harvest the orchards.
As I was driving through wenatchee, I noticed every single orchard with "workers needed" signs on them.
But what I noticed a conspicuous absence of? Trump flags. Not a single trump flag in the Wenatchee area.
What I think is going on in wenatchee, is the lack of immigrant labor is allowing mexican immigrant laborers to exercise labor power. The mexican flags they're flying from their cars are a sort of labor strike declaration.
What the mexican flags are saying is "you need us, and you need our labor, and we know what those trump flags mean, and if you fly those trump flags, you will have absolutely no one to harvest your crops."
We made it! Immers Space is a real cooperative. With guidance from @camille and Sarah Kaplan, we've got a great model for shared power between workers-owners, users, and creators in the metaverse, and we even got to organize under Illinois's new Worker Coop law. We can now, as @ntnsndr likes to say, "show us your bylaws" https://web.immers.space/about-us/

the piece below is supposed to connect to the hole surrounded by the lighter colored metal; it looks like there was a bolt there which fell out. but the hole is not threaded at all so I have no idea how the bolt was ever attached even before it fell out!
this is the part that really confuses me
I love having a scooter, but one thing I wish I had understood before I bought it is that even though off-brand Taiwanese and Chinese scooters can work great, it's nearly impossible to find someone who is willing to do repair work on them.
I had my exhaust mount come loose which caused a big crack to develop in the pipe, and I've called five different shops; not a single one would even look at it, and only one would even talk to me about it.
gonna have to get my hands dirty on this one.

Power's back! Time for coffee! \o/
"In the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, recipes for making soy sauce at home appeared in English and American cookbooks. Since soybeans were not widely available, these recipes used local ingredients such as mushrooms, walnuts, and fish...
Tomato was another popular ingredient for making American "soy" sauce... The names for these varying sauces were "ketchups," or "catch-ups," or "catsups," derived from the Indonesian word for soy sauce: ketjap."
ketchup is soy sauce????????????????

This is the only portable Bluetooth speaker in the house.
Also, I could really use some coffee now. 😆
Luckily I bought this ridiculous digital multimeter/clock/thermometer/Bluetooth speaker a little while ago, so we have tunes while we do puzzles with the kiddo.
Mastodon really cranched that one up.
Finally, not another goddamned comic-book super-hero movie. It felt so good.
Oop. Kiddo just woke up crying. Too dark in their room without light from digital clock. :/
I still have this little cursed rectangle. 😆
Power's out. It makes me realize there's not much point to my early morning routine without power. #SittingQuietlyInTheDark
It's fascinating (and a bit morbid) to watch how inaction has consequences. Stevens County, MN is reaping what they sowed right now.
In the DDR version of Star Wars, the Tusken Raiders ride Trabanthas.
But now I work with it and can see why it's expensive and why having a few different operators to choose from doesn't help, unless they want to make big investments in tech to break free from their shared dependencies, so I'm mad.
At least you can ride however you want and don't need a second ticket to get back home, I guess.
That added quite a bit to the cost of my prescriptions.
Municipality has noted that only 50% of travel happens by bus, bike or other non-car means here, and wants it to be 65% in two years.
What if it didn't cost almost-Berlin-money to ride.
