Hey #papernotebooks users, I'm considering getting some Field Notes Expedition notebooks but heard they are finicky with what pens will work effectively on them. I've mainly used micron 02 (I think) on my non-waterproof Field Notes and like fine tip but don't know how they'd work on an Expedition. I've heard Sharpies are a good alternative?
Some new #fermention after a long hiatus. We have spicy garlic cucumber pickles, spicy garlic honey, and garlic ginger beet kvass with and without dill.
We’re pleased to announce #MeshJam2022, a two-day celebration of mesh networking at Iffy Books. We'll have mesh talks and workshops all day on Saturday, August 13 and Saturday, August 20. Hope to see you there!
I haven't seen the #automat documentary yet, but for years now I always take the opportunity to pass by the original Horn & Hardart Automat location at 8th and Chestnut in Philadelphia. It's just a cool-looking building.
On Saturday, 7/23 at 2 pm, Mike Dank (@Famicoman) will give a talk called 'Networks of Philly' on the hidden telecom infrastructure that shapes our city. See you there!
Apparently the battery box just detaches. It's alive!
I think I need to wire a new fuse holder into it but this RadioShack phone is pretty awesome looking even if it doesn't power up yet. I just got the power cable for it today as it uses a 5-pin DIN connector. I'm not even sure if this is supposed to work without the two (yes two!) lead acid batteries inserted but we will see.
I gave a talk about the Networks of Philly project (https://networksofphilly.org), which discovers and documents cool #infrastructure in Philadelphia, at @iffybooks this past Saturday. For anyone interested the slides are available here in a few different formats: https://github.com/networksofphilly/networksofphilly.org/tree/master/presentations
