Still on my way to . I left my plug converter in my last hotel, but I always take extension cords to hacker events. Got a plug at a local hardware store to make a converter. (If anyone at emf has some ferrules I think that would be an improvement).

I bought a second hand magnetic stirring/heating thing. I don't have any immediate chemistry to do, and the proper stir bars aren't here yet. I wanted to test it though, so I'm warming up some water and stirring with a paperclip.

Peertube told me to make a banner, so I basically made an ugly collage of thumbnails and random image resources from my videos. It's pretty ugly, but I kind of like it.

Mildly interesting: the top can is what I consider normal, it has the side made of one piece of metal, and the bottom is a separate piece attached afterwards. The bottom can has the bottom and side formed from a single sheet of metal. Unfortunately, this means I cant use my can opener to easily drain the beans inside.

I found this image on a companies website, and I just don't understand. Why would you put a mannequin with a lab coat and a helmet outside of a fume hood? I can't think of any reasonable explanation.

I broke the tip off a drill bit after the stores closed, so I decided to try to reshape/sharpen it. All my previous attempts have ended in failure, but somehow it worked this time!

These little spools don't fit on my sewing machine, so I made an attachment.

I'm giving that whole "repair stuff instead of throwing it away" thing a try.

International cat day! I don't want to take care of a conscious living being, but luckily the neighbours have a nice one.

My first 3d printed thing, a hanger for my hot glue gun! I should probably hang around at the fablab more.
