While walking in town today, saw some @helveticablanc like artwork in a shop ^^!

Went back through my daily drawing from the last months and I think I found a format and frequency that works for me to integrate drawing in my daily life. Got 56 drawings so far and I'm still having fun, better than any inktober I attempted so far :3

New recipe in our online documentation: Tempeh!

We discovered and learned how to make tempeh two years ago when we lived in Amsterdam. Going vegan invited us to explore food in a way we had never done before. Tempeh is now part of our daily diet. Making it taught us a lot about fermentation and its benefits, helped us understand our environment, made us want to become more resilient, to make our own tools.

Pino's been in project mode for so long, with objects piled up everywhere, that I forgot what an empty v-berth and quarter berth look like.
It feels so nice to have cleaned, and cleared out those spaces ^_^...

Engine rant 

Will enlarge the holes on the elbow to try and get them to align again, don't need to dig too much out... but still, there is always something. This repair never ends :/.

Engine rant 

The engine repair saga continues. Put a pause on the repair to work on the wood stove installation, but started up again yesterday.

We successfully re-threaded the hole in the engine body. The new thread works, tho had to size up the hole and bolt—fine, not a problem. Also had to make the hole on the mixing elbow bigger to match the new bolt—again, fine... happy to do it.

SO. I try and put the elbow back on... but the new hole I threaded is a tiny bit misaligned? UGH >_<...

i've tagged out 600+ open source, experimental and tiny tools by their qualities and built a new website for sorting through them!

these are all tools towards joyful digital creation, with the goal of enabling working entirely outside of proprietary systems- moving instead from one hand-made software to another.

(the list takes submissions if it is missing yours >:))

We have updated our website.

We converted the old static blog into a wiki, with pages for each of the various projects we've been working on aboard Pino. We hope you like it!

*Takes the tools in*

Donated our old life raft today.

The person that came to pick it up was a BEAST. Slipped it on like a BACKPACK and carried it off lolol...

(Those things weigh a ton.)
