Every now and then an order reminds me that I have practical and pretty models for sale on Shapeways.. if you've ever wanted a desk model of DNA, or a Phage, or a model Centrifuge Rotor powered by a Dremel, I guess I'm your guy:
I still have my trusty Dremelfuges I used (recklessly) for for years.. I even still have some of the stupid prototypes. :)

Can anyone recommend a Jitsi meet server that's not under heavy load, preferably based near Ireland?

I built this thing to catch webhooks from a service I use and put them in a topic I could use to trigger useful events..

Specifically, I'd like to configure a reward in that would trigger a donation to WeForest so a tree would be planted, using (I checked with a WeForest peep, they're legit). I'm not there yet but looking forward to seeing it happen in real life. :)

If you like super alpha experimental software projects, you might like my freshly released pet project to glue incoming HTTP requests to an MQTT topic hierarchy in a somewhat more secure way than comparable projects have done:

The topic of meme accessibility just came my way again.

Conveniently I have some info on how to make memes accessible:

Includes Willy Wonka, thoughtful cat, White House lawn-mowing kid, and Churchill.

Really feeling lately like MQTT could be the 'glue' I needed to integrate a lot of my stuff and experiments, but lots of the useful utilities are written in Javascript and I am too prejudiced to use them.

Anyone who thinks these quarantines/lockdowns are somehow about "government control" is fooling themselves.

The government already controls us through a status quo which teaches us to undervalue ourselves with the aim of making us work meaningless, thankless jobs and spend money on things we don't need.

They don't want us locked down. The more time we're at home, the less we're lining their pockets with needless purchases.
