DTF or DTG : Direct-to-garment (DTG) has long been the most common method for t-shirt printing and small productions, but in recent months, Direct-to-film (DTF) has gained ground in the industry, with more supporters with each passing day. To grasp this paradigm shift, we must first grasp the differences between the two approaches.

Below from my prayer earlier in the year. (2022)

I fix things,
I repair and maintain things.
I help and support my family .
I create shelters which are useful, and build homes.
I care for my friends and the environment around me.
I encourages people to do good and be their best.

Lord that you would help me to be the person above who does good and fixes things.

I was most impressed by the Stokesauce Show today. If you're looking for space to fill then this show would be an excellent choice.

DIY Media Manifesto Musing 

So there are three or four ideas that I'm trying to convey all at one time.

1) Watching independently produced media, especially media produced by folks with whom you're values aligned, is a revolutionary act. It keeps money and attention and power and mindshare out of the hands of the four or five corporations that control american media.

2) It then follows that producing the same is a revolutionary act.

3) Producing media and *sharing it* through something like CC-BY-SA encourages things like fan-fiction, redistribution, remixes, covers, etc. This increases the pool of non-corporate backed media available, makes it easier for people to start, and shows a direct commitment to my personal values, which it'll take me some time to fully articulate.

4) We view the world through the lens of our stories, and when those stories are owned by Disney or Fox, we view the world through a lens and from a perspective that benefits Disney and Fox. Copaganda. Defeatism. Etc.

5) We must make these things in an ethical fashion, we must consume them in an ethical fashion, we must distribute them in an ethical fashion. "Ethical" here means different things to different people, so I have to unpack that.

Nice bit of reporting from Swedish Radio. They built an online fake pharmacy and activated Facebook advertising tools. Thousands of simulated visits to the pharmacy were made each day, and the reporters could see all the sensitive, personal information being stored by Facebook.

Facebook sent no warnings to the pharmacy, despite saying they have tools in place to prevent this from happening.

A few weeks ago they revealed how this was happening with real pharmacies.

The Cream Dream

I took it out for a drive, runs very well for a 40 year old VAN. I can't figure out why the battery goes flat after a few days. We measured the Alternator is only generating about 12.4V at the battery.

It has an external regulator attached the side of the engine compartment, so not sure which has the problem. (the alternator or the regulator). It could even be the battery.

So far I am running at $2,000 for the van and fix up.

Here is my fresh new old van, back from Dennis' who kindly removed the rust and resprayed her with two part epoxy paint.

I grew up in a walkable neighborhood in LA. As a kid I was free to play outside, socialize with the neighborhood kids, and even walk/bike (on the sidewalk since no bike lanes) on over to nearby shops on my own. It was very much beneficial to my upbringing to be independent. It's so sad to see how car-centric planning has robbed children of such a freedom

You don't really get a idea of how tall they are, just wish they landed on my side of the creek.

Join Me on Friday at 23:00 UTC and we'll work our way through the 70's one song at a time. I hope to find time to chat about my Nissan 1983, which my pal Dennis has sprayed up for me.

Hi cycling people :) I installed and maintain a free bicycle repair station on a cycle lane near were we live (rural Denmark).

Am always interested in what cycling service infrastructure is available elsewhere, so if you have something: share it here! :-)
