Visto che ci siamo illusi che qui (fediverso generico) la convivenza sarebbe stata...migliore? Dotata di più mezzi di interazione? Boh?, comunque ho un solo consiglio per vojo:

NEL DUBBIO, BLOCCATE.

- ma che davero cos* ha fatto quella battuta lì, maddai? apperò BLOCCO

ed altri incredibili varianti quasi infinite.

Ascoltate la zia, usateli il "silenzia" e il "blocca".

@weaving Hah, that looks amazing! I’ve seen people make warp-weighted looks out of a variety of things, including old walkers and tray tables … but mostly in Facebook groups about tablet weaving.
in reply to Jonobie

@jonobie

Yeah, warp weighted was the next step after backstrap. But it didn't really work for me either. I need something, where the weaving is really "fixed" to the loom so I'm able to carry it around and set it aside.

All my tools are set up that way, so I can switch between projects, set something aside and pick it up later and everything is just as I left it.

I've found out what the issue with the #tea shop was: they had to restore the website from backups and some user got stuck in the process.

I've now procured more tea (by preparing a list on the website, printing it out and going to the shop. yes, it's close enough that I could just go there without visiting the website. I could.)

Ho scoperto qual'era il problema col sito del negozio di té: hanno dovuto recuperare il sito da backup e qualche utente è rimasto incastrato nel processo.

#sewing update

the corded petticoat is done! And today I expect to finish the hem on the chemise (I'm almost halfway through it), so there will be some cutting fabric time this afternoon, and that may be either the lining for the #AugustaStays or the cartridge pleated skirt.

in reply to Elena ``of Valhalla''

aaand the chemise is also finished!

and then I just didn't have the energy to do anything that required concentration like cutting fabric, so I just did a bit of lucet

(the 3 metre piece has been finished yesterday, now I've started a 1 metre piece for the front lacing)

in reply to Elena ``of Valhalla'' rag. Gustavino Bevilacqua reshared this.

e ho finito anche la sottogonna!

e poi non avevo le forze per fare qualunque cosa che richiedesse attenzione come tagliare stoffa, quindi ho fatto solo un po' di cordino a lucet.

(il pezzo da tre metri è stato finito ieri, adesso ne ho iniziato uno da un metro per l'allacciatura davanti)

Getting to the laundry place 5 minutes before it closed on Saturday morning to give them 4 heavy-ish carpets to wash (while they were still on the car rather than having to walk there while carrying them later). done.

(we called when we got on the car, to ask whether it was ok, and the owner of the place knows us well enough that there wasn't any time consuming procedure, we just dumped everything in there and then she will deal with them when she opens next week. but still, it felt wrong.)

#sewing update

The cording on the petticoat has been completed, I'm now doing the vertical seams (hopefully today), and then I have to gather or pleat or something the top and it's done.

I'm cutting a second attempt at the pyra case: I've cut almost everything, but I've just misplaced one of the fabrics I want to use. The inventory says it's in the box I've been looking for it.

I've printed almost all of the hexbin Standard Compliant pattern weights, I've cut enough felt for all of them (I think, I didn't exactly *count*), and I've been using the first one and it works nicely. It's a good excuse to buy new washers the next time I'm at the shop, right?

Related: if you have recommendations for places in Europe that print small amounts of hexagonal #stickers and don't require me to provide a multi layer PDF file (or a tutorial on how to make those with inkscape or other Free Software) I'd be happy to hear about them :)

And thanks to a couple of movie nights¹ at my mother's I'm close to the 3 meters of lucet cord I plan to use for the back of my Augusta Stays. That I still need to cut lining for, why do you ask?

¹ 17:30 - 19:30 or so counts as night, if you're watching a movie, right? :D

in reply to Elena ``of Valhalla''

it had fallen to the bottom of the box

(I keep fabric vertically in the box so that I can see all of it at a glance, but this one was especially slippery)

era caduta sul fondo della scatola

@debacle @valhalla I think it's almost always a good idea to define each acronym the first time it is used, in any kind of document.

In this case, https://bits.debian.org/2024/04/bits-from-the-dpl-april.html?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=mastodon is a fairly long text with "DPL" mentioned more than 20 times.

Not much, especially when said maintainer(s) are overworked and demoralized, but still better than nothing.

in reply to Elena ``of Valhalla''

@valhalla

Yes, that is an important point too.

When we say co-maintainer, we often implicitly assume that it should be an equally or comparably skilled person doing the same tasks.

And then we stop at a thought on how hard it is to find a duplicate.

While it doesn't have to be.

There is plenty of room for a developer to collaborate with a tester, or a packager or a build engineer, or a documentation writer.

It often can be healthier too.

Which means that two needles have already been broken, and I've just decided to sew the raw edge binding by hand, even if I know it will be painful, because I don't want to deal with another fiddly seam by machine.

I suspect that the body of the shift is a bit too wide at the top, but I haven't tried it on yet to find out. It's only missing a hem at the bottom, and then it's done, however (and I'm sure I can adjust the width so that it is wearable anyway).

I haven't done anything on it (nor on the #AugustaStays), however, because I've spent most of my sewing time on the corded petticoat, because *I want to know* whether it will work and how it will look.

And I'm happy to report that I've just finished the next to last section of cording, only 3 more 3-metre-long seams and then I can finally start on the assembly.

Sospetto che la sottoveste sia un po' troppo larga sul busto, ma non l'ho ancora provata per esserne sicura. Manca solo l'orlo in basso, e poi sarebbe finita (e ho fiducia del fatto di poter sistemare in qualche modo la circonferenza in modo da poterla indossare comunque).

Però è un po' che la ignoro (così come sto ignorando le Augusta Staus), perché la maggior parte del mio tempo-cucito in questi giorni è stato passato sulla sottogonna cordonata, perché *voglio sapere* se funziona e che aspetto ha.

E sono felice di annunciare che ho appena finito la penultima sezione di cordonature, mi mancano solo 3 cuciture da 3 metri l'una, e poi posso finalmente iniziare la costruzione.

thanks for the write up. People just had their rug pulled by a company and simply don't see the problem on hosting a new fork in a closed platform, also run by a company. It is just baffling really.


TFW you wake up in the morning, try to login on your computer and the h key on your keuboard doesn't work.

so you connect a spare keyboard (cheap gaming keyboard with blue keys, way too noisy for regular use) to a free USB port, login, open a few things and then try to write again with your keyboard, and it works.

disconnect the spare, start having breakfast, post a few things on the fediverse, now the s and the f keys no longer work.

Connect the spare, use it for a while, try the original, it works. And then it stops.

I'm wondering whether I should move elsewhere my keyboard and just resign myself to use the spare today.

(I know what caused the issues, there may have been an accident in the weekend, and a replacement has already been ordered and may even be delivered today or tomorrow, and then there will be time to try and fix the original one.)

in reply to Elena ``of Valhalla''

TFW ti svegli alla mattina, cerchi di fare login sul computer e il tasto h non funziona.

quindi attacchi la tastiera di scorta (una da gaming economica, con tasti blu che sono troppo rumorosi per l'uso regolare) ad una porta USB libera, fai login, apri un po' di cose, provi a scrivere di nuovo con la tua tastiera e funziona.

stacchi quella di scorta, inizi a fare colazione, postare sul fediverso, e smettono di funzionare i tasti s e f.

Riattacchi quella di scorta, la usi per un po', riprovi l'originale, funzona. E poi smette di funzionare.

Mi chiedo se sia il caso di staccare l'originale e per oggi rassegnarmi ad usare quella di scorta.

(So cosa causa il problea, nel weekend potrebbe esserci stato un piccolo incidente, ed è già stata ordinata una nuova tastiera che potrebbe essere consegnata oggi o domani, e poi ci sarà tempo per provare a far rifunzionare l'originale.)

Forgotten Yeast Bread - Sourdough Edition


Posted on March 23, 2024
Tags: madeof:atoms, craft:cooking, craft:baking, craft:bread
Yesterday I had planned a pan sbagliato for today, but I also had quite a bit of sourdough to deal with, so instead of mixing a bit of of dry yeast at 18:00 and mixing it with some additional flour and water at 21:00, at around maybe 20:00 I substituted:

  • 100 g firm sourdough;
  • 33 g flour;
  • 66 g water.

Then I briefly woke up in the middle of the night and poured the dough on the tray at that time instead of having to wake up before 8:00 in the morning.

Everything else was done as in the original recipe.

The firm sourdough is feeded regularly with the same weight of flour and half the weight of water.

Will. do. again.
