Finally finished the roll that was languishing in the OM-2n. It's drying now.

Look at this 1990 baby. You wouldn’t be mean to someone in this car. It looks like it rolls onto its side to go to sleep. It would be at home in a ghibli movie. It’s held together with gaffer tape and love.

At this point I'm basically rebuilding drying rack with 3d-printer parts and now I replaced another part that's been literally falling apart from what I presume non-UV-resistant plastic -- supports for rack wings.

So I couldn’t understand why my mouse would disappear in my work MacBook and my iPad suddenly started to see it.

I suspected that the ancient USB hub that I bought in Berlin in 2013 for way too much money, was doing something compatible with bluetooth, or cheap usb wire was acted as an antenna.

Turns out this is a feature in mac, that extends desktop and keyboard, even when iPad is not physically connected… a feature that I have enabled. Duh.

I found a cool video with a bunch of references to modern Ukrainian music with playlists in the video description.

I made a practical part thing thing -- replacement hinge for a drying rack.

Technically, I used a $1000 3D printer to replace a $2 part on a $40 thing, yet I'm fascinated by it.

Also it forces me to vaguely remember something from high school geometry without having flashbacks.

I know, I know, two posts in sequence but this is a marching band that plays techno! Like Brandt Brauer Frick but hitting WAY harder

I hate scanning. At least this thing (when it works) does a whole roll at once, unattended. (PrimeFilm XA)

Hey lazyweb. My manager at work is thinking about hosted stackoverflow server. Are there any good alternatives for it? Open-source or not.

If you're having trouble with your Gmail account in Thunderbird today, it might be due to Google now requiring OAuth 2.0 authentication.

Thunderbird SHOULD transition your account automatically, but if you're not able to connect, try going into your Gmail Account's Server Settings and manually changing "Authentication Method" to OAuth2 (it should NOT be "Normal.")

More information about this change can be found here:
