I've hit the point in my 3D printing hobby where I have contemplated more than once trying to figure out how to do it for a living. It is not a viable idea at all (especially at my novice level) but a guy can dream.

Ok Fosstodon, got a question. This may have been brought up before so I apologize if this is a repeat.

Where is a good place to get music besides Amazon? I know about Bandcamp but they don't have everything I would want. Looking for a place to buy physical CDs and / or download in FLAC.

My LastPass account has officially been deleted. There's no turning back now!

Well, I took the plunge and migrated from LastPass to Bitwarden. I just dont like how LogMeIn are handling LastPass snd Bitwarden has come a long way.

Time to remove the LP extension from all of my machines.

It feels like spring outside, so I decided to go for a walk for the first time since my knee surgery. I think I ovedid it though. Time for some ice and elevation.

Tomorrow I'll try again.

My father in law has been quite ill lately (cancer) so I decided to be nice and make him a TARDIS on my 3D printer. He's a bigger Dr Who fan than I am.

I want to make sure this is clear to all. ubuntu.buzz is open to having people join our instance. The creator and admin of our instance is me, Ikora. I'm a black femme, but you don't have to be to join us. We are creating a community space based on restorative justice principles. So, yes, everyone is welcome! But, it's in context, right? Unearned advantages will be addressed and acknowledged. We won't be gaslighting each other. Listen to experience, etc. Join me if you want to help. <3

It actually feels like spring outside. Of course I'm stuck working indoors, but the change in weather is enough to brighten my day!

I love when spring starts and all of the snow goes away. Minus the excessive amounts of water from melting snow...

If Dominion would just open source their software people would be able to tell if the algorithm was able to steal votes or not...but that's none of my business...

The new OnionShare is out!

It adds a bunch of great features like tabs, anonymous chat that never logs anything, and better command line support.

Here's the blog post: micahflee.com/2021/02/onionsha

Download OnionShare 2.3 from: onionshare.org

Install it on a headless server:

`pip3 install --user onionshare-cli`

Read the amazing new docs that are translated to a bunch of languages: docs.onionshare.org/2.3/en/

Two drill holes and some snipping of plastic and we're back in action. Now to acquire an altoids tin to put this in for when I travel.

I just customized my first 3D model in OpenSCAD. That was not as steep of a learning curve as I thought it'd be.

That said, I'm sure I'll be very lost when I start designing my own stuff in there πŸ™‚

This 3D print was close but no cigars. Guess I'm trimming some of it out to get my razor to fit in there...

So, my primary Linux machine has basically become my 3D printing computer. Which is fine with me. Before this I only used it for web browsing. I'm glad to be actually using my preferred machine for something productive.
