The combination of a mad rush of tiny humans arriving in the world, and being basically housebound for a month with an ill pet has set off what we could perhaps call SEWMAGEDDON, if we were feeling exceptionally hyperbolic. Although perhaps not, the crafting frenzy also included some lasering and painting. For those things, a separate post I think. This shall be about the TINYBOOTS and quilts and TINYHOODIES. This is already a picture heavy post that should not be all one post. I think I will split this into chapters. Chapter 1: Cute but achieving ‘chocolate teapot’ levels of utility First off, some laser engraved suede booties. Yes, shoes on babies are pointless, yes, they are still unbelievably cute…
The Dog Dies in This
warning.. contains sad poetry..
Dyslexia friendly fonts..
Today I learned that Comic Sans is secretly a force for good, and should be lauded and loved as an accessibility marvel for people with dyslexia (perhaps even 15% of the population). https://www.thecut.com/2017/03/the-reason-comic-sans-is-a-public-good.html That’s all well and good, but the hatred is real, and the font is a horror for so many historical reasons. I can’t do it. As a wee trial, I’ve installed the Open Dyslexic font (downloaded and then converted to web friendly formats here: https://onlinefontconverter.com/) though, any dyslexics care to comment? It looks pretty weird to my eyes. https://www.opendyslexic.org/
Sisyphean Seveneves a review I guess
Snow Crash, that was a great book right? Who cannot love a book where the main actor is called Hiro Protagonist. Careening all over the place, it was a kind of post cyberpunk drunken spree through three different parties that left you hungover in a field. I came into Seveneves a little late, because I’d seen the size of the physical book and decided that I didn’t want to risk a sprained wrist. One Scribd.com encounter later.. Feeling a bit under the weather, I thought me some thrilling sci-fi apocalypta would be just the ticket. Long, OK, but he will have honed his craft so long after Snow Crash days, kept the ship trimmed, polished the machine, can I stop…
Creality Ender 3; all aboard the 3D Printing Wagon
TL;DR: Scroll down to the first picture if you just want to get into the nuts and bolts of my Ender 3 setup teething issues.. I resisted getting a 3D printer for a long while, because the cost vs potential use cases/fun ratio seemed poor.Â I also had access to 3D printers at my hackspace (https://mkmakerspace.co.uk/) – so why would I need my own? The amount of fettling that most of the people at the hackspace seemed to do to their machines was also pretty off-putting. I gave up doing hardware and even OS support (plus hosting mail servers in my living room, Linux in any form, etc etc) many years ago, because fettling is ANNOYINGGGGG.Â I want things to…
