I should say, the last time I had one of the guys in the yard cut lumber for me he was not only fast, but uncannily precise. I was hoping I'd get that guy again.
Asked the guy at the hardware store to cut some lumber that I was buying, because I don't have much in the way of power-tools at home. I needed four one-foot lengths out of a board - guy proceeds to cut four 15" lengths. Then all of the other cuts, he's giving himself a PRETTY GENEROUS margin of error; checking the lengths at home, he's off by as much as 1/8" on some. Gosh, I sure am glad I get to trim all of these with a hand saw now!
Finally ...um, "repaired" my DR-55. The stop/play switches have been broken for ages. I tried swapping them out with some switches I had laying around from an old Atari paddle controller which really looked like they'd work as drop-in replacement, but they didn't work for some reason. So now, via an incredibly ugly kludge, I'm probably the only guy around with Cherry microswitches on his old Dr. Rhythm. #DIY #synth #kludge #hack #music.
Drat! This, unfortunately does not function in exactly the same way as booting with OPTION pressed, so... I have to fix that damned key again. For the 50th time.
I was gonna do a short run of #gocco prints with ol' #skeletor here, but the screens did not flash correctly and the originals were, of course, destroyed in the process, so... yep. Thank goodness I scanned 'em first! Maybe some kind of digital postcard print is in order instead.
