I made this PCB vise out of some ground steel rod I already had and spare 3D printer pieces.
I cut a groove into both of those aluminium castings with a mill (which holds the board) and drilled and tapped into part of an old dumbbell for weight.
Adjusting the vise means having to use a 3mm hex wrench, but I have those on my workbench so this is no big deal.
Pleased to get some lightweight metalwork done.
Inform 7 is now (finally!) open source!
Bingo: "We won't win people over by default, and we will make plenty of mistakes along the way. But we must recognize, and reject, the biases at play that cause people to belittle, ignore, and misunderstand any initiative that's astonishingly successful without making anyone rich." - https://write.as/eloquence/why-mastodon-and-the-fediverse-are-doomed-to-fail
> [Sherry Turkle] advocates the "bricoleur style" of programming as a valid and underexamined alternative to what she describes as the conventional structured "planner" approach. In this style of coding, the programmer works without an exhaustive preliminary specification, opting instead for a step-by-step growth and re-evaluation process.

makes more sense to link to an example file like https://github.com/insom/pubble/blob/master/src/input.insom
Deciding that my static site generator will use a format called `.insom` which is a bit Markdown but also a bit Gemini text.
First time trying to build a parser / tree in Rust. It's a learning experience. Lots of this code is pretty brutal, but I'm having some fun. The current thing for my ~ / Gemini / Gopher / Finger is written in bash so no matter how bad the Rust is, this is an upgrade.
Thinking of the art dealer who during WW2 sold Vermeer art to Herman Goering. After the war he was arrested as a traitor and his defense was that he actually was a master forger and they were all fake. Turns out he was and they were so the court said "cool, stealing from Nazis is cool". The lesson is, steal from Nazis is fine and cool
