It's been over a year since I've been here! Things have changed a lot! Here's a new #introduction
I'm Brad, 33, he/him (mostly), in the US midwest, working on space science hardware (as far as I can get from the military-industrial complex)
I want to:
- Live in community with friends
- Fully Automated Luxury Gay Space Communism
Brave is showing up in my newsfeeds again, so
Periodic reminder that Brendan Eich, the CEO of Brave Software, is a homophobe who donates to anti-LGBT organizations.
I'm not saying that you shouldn't use the browser. But you should probably be wary of any monetization attempts, since we know where that money will go.
learn to code? become a welder instead, a flagger, a plumber, an iron- or steelworker. something with a union. something with training. something with safety standards. something with even the faintest structures for asserting ethics. there’s nothing for you behind software’s glamour but trauma and anguish.
If anyone can tell me anything about the Bernina Bernette 134D, I'd appreciate it.
I can't find much info about this thing, even the manual seems unavailable (Although the 34 and 234 are available online).
Apparently they were made between 1997 and 1999. Juki made other Bernette models, but this one doesn't seem to match any I can find, and it seems to have a totally unique needle plate.
I got the serger I pick up for almost no money working /kinda acceptably/. Still needs some dialing in, and some fresh parts, but it's working!
I only had to break and fix and break and fix it like 4 times.
electronics, science, space, bad puns, and one day escaping to the one place that hasn't been corrupted by capitalism.
