We've increased our level of making! Some explanation: we designed and 3D printed a tempeh mold, using food safe plastic (PETG), which we filled with half-ground soybeans and a fungus (rhizopus oligosporus) and let it grow in our custom-made incubator for ~30 hours. The result is this amazing, delicious, protein-packed tempeh <3

My friend just called to say there's a baboon in the neighbourhood. That's quite exciting.

Lovely mini-documentary about Tambayaki pottery and potters.

A little railway operatable by the residents of Nordstrandischmoor with their own custom train cars.

Spending a few moments looking up words I hear on the radio every morning:

番組 (bangumi) - programme
新方 (shinkata) - new
そして (soshite) - and then
稽古 (keiko) - training / practice
良かった (yokatta) - was good

I need to set aside a notepad to write down the words I'd like to look-up later.

My RPi4 arrived yesterday and I'm slowly getting it set up as a desktop machine.

Quite a few frustrating moments so far but that's usually the case when I'm starting from scratch.

I much prefer i3-gaps but had a lot of trouble trying to build it from source and eventually gave up. A bit annoying, since I had success yesterday with Debian 11 (Bullseye).

The Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS), a UK-based organisation whose main role is to operate the application process for British universities, does not have an email address...

This is from their contact page:

"If you have a question, or want to know more about what's happening at UCAS, there are different ways to get involved."

"We don’t have an email address, but you can reach us with a direct message on Facebook or Twitter."



"Springhares are predominantly solitary and tend to forage in more open areas with sparse vegetation and, therefore, have greater exposure to predators due to the lack of cover or group vigilance. Thus, we hypothesize that the patchiness of biofluorescence in springhares could function as a camouflage of sorts, but this would depend on the UV sensitivity of their predators."

Vivid biofluorescence discovered in the nocturnal Springhare (Pedetidae). This is the first documented biofluorescence of an Old World placental mammal.

Today I learned how to capture server / system data with nmon and generate HTML graphs using nmonchart.

Couldn't have been much simpler.

I'm going to use this to better understand the behaviour and resource usage of go-sbot on my Pi (for PeachCloud).
