So off to London for the day tomorrow, any suggestions for sciencey / engineeringy attractions (obvs the science museum, NH et al and the brunel one) but other ones I might have missed?

I am basically listening to this on repeat because it is stuck in my head anyway : although described as a Mongolian metal band I know a classic blues track when I hear one.

So the now fixed 3d printer is whirring away making parts for the latest silly project and I have just been to farm down the road to pick up a couple of bottles of their excellent cider. Now I need to design a much stronger mount that I thought or make sure I run the motor at a much lower speed!

The gif doesn't really do it justice, it is more effective in real life

So I might have made something.... and I refuse to apologise :) :awesome_rotate:

Say hello to Telephant!

I've written a little Mastodon client for the Desktop - called Telephant - and am currently looking for beta testers!

Want to help out and don't mind compiling the app yourself? (Don't worry it's fairly straight forward and I've added detailed instructions to the README!)

Join me here:

Looking forward to hearing your feedback!

So this is it. Officially the first toot I'm posting from my own Mastodon client. A bit of a Marconi Moment for myself.

This is a picture of the letter @tig sent me along with a lump of coal one Christmas (6 years ago?) I still have the coal and the letter!

So apparently the USAF has official precautions for when they have to work with their Canadian counterparts.... @MunkyBone

I might have fixed the bed adhesion issues I had on my 3d printer!
Still got a bit of stringing to sort but 1000% improvement so far :)

So I built a stand for my owls and included a very bad git joke...

I want to know if @dick_turpin went to the National Alpaca show at weekend and if he did then we want to see pictures but if he didn't I want to hear a seriously impressive explanation why not as it was only 30mins from him and £2 donation to charity to go in AND it was full of alpacas.

@dick_turpin this is still on tomorrow! only down the road! £2 charitable donation to go in apparently!

As we are dealing with graphic filth I should also mention NetData for Linux boxes : by default it gives you a real time window into what is going on. (Don't use on public facing boxes without reading how to secure it) but then you can snapshot and back end the data into Influx then graph historical data with Grafana or Chronograf....

So @dick_turpin I expect to see gratuitous graph porn of Frankenpi by the end of the week :)
