Time for a good old-fashioned pool dismantling.

An 18 year old from Ireland has won a science fair for extracting microplastics from water using ferrofluids. He used his parents' home as a makeshift lab, dismantling the washing machine and building his own spectrometer.

He also speaks three languages, plays the trumpet, and has a dwarf planet named after him 😎

nc -q1 -lvp 1234 < file.txt # poor man's file serve. Use nc serverhost 1234 > output.txt to retrieve file from remote host. NAT bugs this.

It's uncanny:

No matter how much water is in the kettle, it will always boil by the time I'm finished brushing my teeth.

Of all the laws that could bear my name, this is probably the stupidest one I could get.

I never knew linux's AX25 package had something like inetd. I may need to dust off my TNC's to play with this.
Around 8min mark Tom explains how you could basically connect most unix programs to packet radio. Connecting an irc client to packet might be fun.

Lots of raspberry & blackberry plants scattered throughout the yard at this new house.

Picking fruit is the kind of homeowner maintenance I can get behind. 😀

Hey everyone, this is my first "toot", still discovering how mastodon works :) I'm a 40 yo french guy, my interests: programming, reverse engineering, "drones", electronics, software defined radio ... #introductions

Hopefully I'm doing this right...Here is my introduction! ...So I’m a 30ish IT tech living in southwest KY. My hobbies include old FPS games (doom,quake,etc.), distro hopping (desktop on OpenSUSE), mountain biking, and building pcs. I also like apple stuff... Thats about it!

Good morning! I'm Gerrit. #intro #introductions

I'm into decentralized networks, open source hardware, modular design, distributed manufacturing, appropriate technology and solarpunk.

I spend most of my time liberating data from diabetes devices like insulin pumps and blood glucose meters, writing open-source software for tidepool.org.

I would like to spend more time growing food and building hardware to support that, and I hope to find inspiration here in the Merveilles.town community.

I finally got around to setting up feedtube.com as a dedicated RSS-to-ActivityPub domain. Not taking feed submissions from the public yet, but may in the future. Let me know if there's something you'd like to follow that'd make a good test.

Test forum feed from
Yellow Plastic is here: @yp_retrocomputing - might be a good way to follow things.

Dear mastodon.

Please stop being negative on things you don't like. (google, fb etc). You dont add anything, and nagging is easy.

Be positive on the things you do like (Foss, beer, art music). You maybe do interest some ppl.

HOW TO USE MASTODON, AN EASY GUIDE:
1. see something nice when going about your day
2. write about it
3. revel in the fact that we are all just people
4. give emotional support and validation to others who write about that nice thing they saw today
