Non usate MAI WhatsApp Business per il vostro lavoro.

Ieri hanno eliminato senza preavviso l'account della mia attività: anni di dati persi, nessuna possibilità di recuperare i contatti (o di avvertirli), danni notevoli per noi e per i clienti.

Fare affidamento sulle spalle di chi non ha nessun interesse verso di te?

Cara internet,

per quale motivo quando si esce a stendere la biancheria in pieno inverno non ci si veste più pesante di quanto non si sia vestiti in casa, nonostante dentro ci siano 18°C e il termometro fuori vicino al muro ne segni meno di 1?

brb, vado ad abbracciare il calorifero
no, tiratevela che avete un balcone, eh...
sì, ho un balcone, e mi serve, sennò dove stendo i 10 metri di stoffa che ho bagnato?

(e menomale che al piano di sotto c'è una fotofobica che non si lamenta se le oscuro casa :D)


Anyone seen something like this?

I am looking for a proper, self-hosted page archiver tool. reminiscence looks close but I really need/want mobile app support too.

Right now I use a one note notebook to catalog all my stuff long term. Super helpful for when sites go offline and the like.

The bag of “waste” (i.e. stuffing) from the wool I'm currently combing is getting full, so I decided to start making a #muff base following the instructions on http://koshka-the-cat.blogspot.com/2013/01/an-18th-century-muff-base-tutorial.html using the same warm flannel from my shirt (hopefully, the cover will be enough to prevent it from being seen, and I do have weapon grade cold hands).

http://www.festiveattyre.com/2013/12/faux-fur-muff.html gave me the idea to add a pocket to it, and it is just the right size to hold a pinephone. What Can Possibly Go Wrong?

(ok, I'll try not to let the pinephone overheat, and look for some flask to fill with boiling water, as they used to do when muffs were a thing)

Inspired by @ajroach42's research, I ordered a 60s hand powered printing/copying machine - the Print-O-Matic A2G!

While I got it with a print project in mind, I think it would be really cool to try to make an open source version of it!

There is little info out there about this kind of machine (mimeograph), but given their simplicity I hope I will be able to back engineer it and create instructions on building and using your own.

Can't wait for it to get here!
A small, hand powered printing machine (print-o-matic A2G) sitting on a dark beige carpet is seen from above.<br><br>The shiny black ink drum with a hand crank is attached to a brown metal base. The base hosts movable metal guards to hold the paper of different size. A size guide is printed on top of the base next to the guards. A metal arm extending from the drum to the base acts as a manual paper feed.
An open cardboard box showing the contents of a print-o-matic supply kit: a bottle of ink, small rectangular box (correction fluid?), 3 styluses and a brush arranged in pre-cut compartments.<br><br>The clearly vintage box is photographed against a dark beige carpet.
A selection of manuals, ads and other paperwork for print-o-matic machine and a fabric (stencil?) sheet scattered on a dark beige carpet.<br><br>The yellowing of the paper, font choice as well as the graphic/clip-art of a woman on one of the documents indicate the mid-century origin.

OK understood. Stealth behavior complexity like a stealth hacker (cool). I'm also concerned with privacy, a little. Btw I use other methods such as pi-hole and sandbox browser with no caching, so every session is closed by itself. Not the best but I find it usable (and maybe I'm wrong). I'm bit lazy with no-script. :)
actually, I am concerned about privacy, but mostly I use an old computer: allowing javascript to run on all tabs I end up having open in the evening would kill its performance :)

hot take: if you have to, a vaccine is the best possible way to have unexpected anaphylaxis the first time in one's life, because contrary to most other anaphylaxis triggers it happens in a place full of medical staff that can provide immediate treatment, making prognosis really good.

E nevica. Per la seconda volta quest'inverno in quantità che negli ultimi anni capitavano solo ogni 4-5 anni almeno.

Non mi lamento, neanche un po'.

Il marciapiede della mia via è quasi tutto spalato (non solo da me) e credo di avere in faccia un sorriso tipo bambino che ha appena fatto a palle di neve.
@Elena ``of Valhalla'' credo che da me una quantità simile fosse scesa l'ultima volta intorno al 2012 circa


is this shown with a CW on systems that support CWs?

(thanks @Tobias for the hint)


CW on minor injury, if I could add CWs



TFW you find blood on your work gloves just after using power tools… but then you realize it's from a minor cut from when I cut bread for breakfast (before having breakfast, it's not a good combination :D )
You can use the "abstract" BBCode in Friendica. You can even set different abstracts for e.g. Twitter vs. the rest of the world (see the BBCode help page for more details). But AFAIK they wont be displayed in Friendica ;-)

Fa strano, è la vigilia di Natale e ancora non ho orlato in fretta e furia un nuovo #furoshiki accorgendomi di non averne abbastanza / della misura giusta per impacchettare qualche regalo da consegnare tra stasera e domani…

(e non ho neanche fatto il post con la foto dei furoshiki di quest'anno, visto che non ci sono stati)
ne avevo trovati due per terra, impantanati e calpestati, in un giorno di pioggia a Genova. Uno l'ho raccolto e portato con me, un altro l'ho lasciato al suo destino, sperando abbia trovato un genitore amorevole. È decorato a trucchi del teatro Kabuki, una meraviglia!
ma poveri furoshiki abbandonati! ma non si fa!

menomale che son stati salvati (uno di sicuro, l'altro si spera)!


So… I've been working on and off on this since 2017



(picture of two work in progress toe-up socks, one just past the heel, the other one around knee height. the plan is to have them reach mid-tight, or whenever I can get with a 100g ball of yarn)

Now that I've had to stop handsewing for a few days I've picked them up again, #knit the heel on the second sock, and then, instead of starting on the leg… two days ago I started this



( picture of a work in progress oversized hat, meant to be #felted)

why? WHY?

(at least, the hat was another project that had been looking at me for quite some time, but it wasn't even started yet)
why? maybe because it's about the road, not the result :)

My tests with the DeAtramentis #fountainPen #inks continue.

The samples included two different reds, and when I choose them I had no plan to make mixes or anything.

Except, one of them was a very nice brown, and the other one a pretty banal red (that I suspect can work nicely for mixing, however), while I wanted something a bit darker, but not too much.



(picture of some somewhat irrelevant text in Italian, in various shades of red and brown)

And now, instead of desiring *one* bottle of ink, I want two :D

(but first, I need to use up some of the ink I already have. with patience and self control. must. have. self. control.)

TFW you've just cut two shirts, to be handsewn, and your thumb starts to (low-grade) hurt in a way that says “no handsewing for a couple of days, ok. and no spinning either”

Thankfully, there is still that pair of socks I've been knitting since 2017, and that doesn't seem to hurt.
I don't do enough around home to injure myself beyond burning myself when cooking, baking, or making coffee.
burning oneself definitely counts!

(as for my hands, they are more prone than average to RSI-style pain; I don't know whether it's just them or if it's the computer's fault, but luckily now I know them and I can stop and change what I'm doing it at the stage of “very slightly hurting” so it's not a big deal)


TIL: flannel¹ face masks aren't that bad from a being able to breathe POV, they are nice at not letting my nose freeze (but today it wasn't cold, more tests are needed) and most importantly they are matched to the shirt I'm wearing. :D

Dear #handsewing fediverse,

while sewing by hand, I've noticed that the thread often breaks close to the needle and I've been wondering whether that's just something that's inevitable or I'm doing something wrong.

I'm already waxing the thread, I'm not being very good at moving the needle to different positions of the thread (that's something I'm trying to improve), and I'm already using the best cotton thread I can find (the other brands I've tried were even worse). I don't know whether it's relevant, but I'm using a pretty thin needle.

Also, as long as I'm using regular cotton thread I'm not worrying too much, when it breaks I just throw the broken bit in the miscellaneous stuffing bin and that's it, but one of my next projects is going to use fancy linen thread, and if I understand it correctly that is going to be even more prone to suffer friction induced breakages, so if I'm doing something wrong I'd like to try to fix it before wasting that.


So let me get this straight: someone has developed a microchip and power supply powerful enough to be used for tracking people yet small enough to be injected through a tiny injection needle, and instead of making billions of dollars from the underlying tech, they're *checks notes* putting it in a vaccine so they can track random citizens.

O... K....
Hold on. Let me open facebook on my ipad to warn everybody that they are *checks toot* tracking random citizens.

(picture of a handful of 2ml samples #fountainPen and #dipPen #inks )
I'd be very interested to hear your thoughts on any water-resistant ones you may have in there.
The list of inks is here: https://inks.lw.trueelena.org/search.html?q=purchase_date%3A2020-11-27 ; in the next few days I'll add pictures of the writing tests I've done yesterday (at the moment they are on a table with drops of water on them that are slowly drying out).

First impressions, using the dip pen(s) I use mostly when writing at home.

The DeAtramentis Document line seems to be a bit better behaved wrt line widening than both the R&K SketchInk and the only Noodler's I have (Polar Blue), but they still do it a bit. This one (in black) earned a chance to be tried in my preppy 02 when it will be inked next time.
The nice thing is that they make a lot of colours, and that they can be mixed (the horrible thing it that they make a lot of colours and now I need them ALL). The Red Grey is a pretty nice brown, the Red is a bit too light (but maybe with a bit of Red Grey it can be improved).

I didn's see much difference between the R&K Documentus and the Sketch Ink (but I don't have the Lotte, maybe this one is a deeper black).

The iron gall ones from KWZ act just as I expect an iron gall ink to do, which is good (but also means that they have a colour component that doesn't survive contact with water). The Red #3 is much more purple than I expected from the pictures, however, so I'm happy I only bought a sample, otherwise I would now have 3 purple / black iron gall inks that are very similar to each other.

To be continued as I use them a bit more…
Very cute project!
Cool!

I'm interested in doing CMYK color mixing with De Atramentis Document inks (when my 4.5oz bottle of Heart of Darkness is used up), so I'm curious to know your thoughts on them.


The whole thread is worth reading
For folks interested -- I'm going to be talking about not-shitty replacements for Amazon Kindle and KU.
