We had finally time to install and test the extensions of the hangboard. Early conclusion: the extensions printed with PolyMax PLA are strong enough for my son (57kg) and the PolyMax provides enough grip.

is a comprehensive and information utility.

Kalzium provides a wide range of information for several fields of science. Kalzium features a periodic table, isotope table, molecule editor, data plotting utility, and detailed atomic information. Kalzium can readily calculate many atomic phenomena, including nuclear decay and molecular mass.

update. Does anyone have experience with configuring Wiki.js?

It's a nice looking wiki that I'm setting up for all our departments, so anyone has to be able to work with it. I'm trying to figure out what's possible in terms of layout and navigation. I've already figured out how to connect it to our FreeIPA server.

Extensions for my sons DIY hangboard (not scale models of the Pentagon as someone here suggested). I'm developing this together with my son e.g to improve his pinch grip. The one on the left is printed with PolyMax PLA which hopefully is strong enough for this purpose.

This is what you say to Jeremy Clarkson when he tells you why bicycles are bad. A bicycle requires 100-200 times less energy per km than a car. Yes, that's right. So cars can f*@% off.

Reminder why switching.social does NOT recommend using Brave:

-Brave is a for-profit ad sales and cryptocurrency promotion company, funded by venture capital firms. Its primary purpose is to make money, not protect privacy.

-Top of the list of Brave's VC owners is Founders Fund, which is Peter Thiel's company ( web.archive.org/web/2019083116 )

-Peter Thiel is also the head of Palantir, which makes its money by spying on the general public ( bloomberg.com/features/2018-pa )

I'm currently in the market for a adventure/gravel/all-round bike but I don't have a ton of money. I'm looking for something like the Canyon Grail Al 6.0 or Triban RC520 LTD 1X11. Any recommendations for these kind of bicycles or experience with them?

I just received PolyMax PLA that I want to use to 3d print a hangboard. This filament is expensive so I hope it's worth it (==strong enough).

Olive is a promising new non-linear video editor. I've just become a patron to support it, and you should be too: patreon.com/olivevideoeditor

It may look like a model of the Pentagon but it's actually an addition to the hangboard for my son that I made earlier (a hangboard is a trainings device for climbers). This one is made out of regular PLA which isn't strong enough but eventually I want to print it with PolyMax PLA.

This is where we are after more than two decades of "action":

Years it took us to drive up CO2 by 10 ppm:
320 → 330: 12
330 → 340: 8
340 → 350: 6
350 → 360: 7
360 → 370: 6
370 → 380: 5
380 → 390: 5
390 → 400: 5
400 → 410: 4

Our system is obviously fundamentally incapable of addressing our greatest crisis.

On iteration #24 of my #3Dprinted EMT8 CPU/MOSFET case I think I may have finally worked out all the issues. Had all the physical and mechanical issues licked until I tried to use it. Wire lengths sunk me. It was either make new wires or redesign. I like #OpenSCAD much more than making wires.

The Nerf discs for the Vertex that I 3D printed perform equally well as the originals. I can change the softness (and weight) of the discs by varying the infill percentage of the Filaflex and thus mimicking the softness of the originals.

I updated my Cura slicer to version 4.1. I really like the new interface. Amazing how this program keeps getting better and better.
