@nihilazo @heatherhorns These are great! I've also put a .tar.gz up at https://insm.cf/blobs.tar.gz which other Mastodon admins can import with `tootctl emoji import blobs.tar.gz` -- to save uploading each one individually. (Only PNGs allowed, so not sure how to include the licence, I can take it down if this is an issue).
@pho4cexa ^ just realised that my online self could be native to any timezone i choose. thanks for this!
took me wwaaaayyy longer than it should have to get screen -> iso metric grid coordinates working, i'm feeling like doing an Into gur Breach #pico8 demake could be allot of fun and also make a lovely pocket chip game! (plus i've wanted to do some kind of iso metric game since Transistor Hades and Wonderful 101 kinda made me fall in love with what you can do with it)
Literally a guy with an Eastern European accent saying "remember to wear gloves so you don't get acid on you, and avoid accidental contact with the terminals to prevent shock" while he's not wearing gloves and still wearing a metal wedding ring. Absolute legend.
All of this is because the ER-16 collet holder I got for Christmas takes a metric draw bar, and my machine comes with a 1/4-20 one because it's American (despite the machine being "metric")
@m455 I honestly would not even have the web interface and just push everyone to use pinafore.social -- I think it's such a pleasant way to browse fedi
Spent a fucking hour cutting an extra-long M6/1.0 bolt out of some aluminium and it's like 0.05mm too big and doesn't fit. Putting the gears for screw cutting on the lathe requires removing the motor, and I put everything back and now I have to do undo it all again. And I've lost my 30 tooth gear. Harrumph.
@magical For "new to me this year" -- https://hypnoticbrass.bandcamp.com/album/hypnotic-brass-ensemble -- for "rediscovering the past" then https://www.discogs.com/release/6404554-Pixies-Doolittle-25 has been in heavy rotation.
How about you?
