I have a love_hate relationship with underscores

Finally I can use technology to answer the age-old multi-cat-haver question: "Who made this poop?"

Finally buying a Raspberry Pi 😮 ...Zero W model because it's for taking occasional webcam-photos of the cats' litter box. Unfortunately not replacing my broken-laptop media server just yet... 😅

This business practice is also making it so many They Might Be Giants songs can't be played in YouTube Music due to the fact they made 3 children's albums, even though they have 22+ adult albums 🤔

Google's lovely business practice of "trying to harvest all children's data before they're old enough to fight back" also has the lovely side effect of demonetizing female YouTubers who happen to look young 👌 Nice job on that sexist programming, G

Telegram does a bad job removing audio from a video taken on my phone, so I tried doing it with ffmpeg within Termux. It works perfectly! Looks like I finally found a reason to have Termux installed 😛👍

Snap packages still work poorly for desktop applications. And tbh they don't work well for anything else either because every snap takes multiple seconds to launch 😓 Flatpak isn't much faster but it uses my desktop theming, has better community support, and (most importantly) has prettier progress bars when installing stuff 🙂

whole wheat flour really activates a lot quicker than my all-purpose did! it's almost time to bake bread 🍞 and transfer to a bigger jar 😯

got some wire racks to help the sprouts catch light from the windows. (also, to mount grow lights on later) The sprouts are loving it and the room looks more organized and clean this way 😊

This tiny shelf over the basement stairs is now the official station! 🚂 It currently has two jars of and some starter

So far we have sprouts for pok choy, broccoli raab, thyme, basil, velour bean, leek, lettuce, arugula, spinach, radish, catnip, snow pea, three kinds of kale, chives, nasturtium, swiss chard, cantaloupe, watermelon, and strawberries. We've been taking them outside for most of the day to harden them for planting 🌥️⌛

I'm making bagels and freezing them! It'll be the first time I've ever frozen a homemade bread product. Usually I enjoy my baking fresh but I'm in a mood lately 👍❄️

$2.99 Bart Simpson soundboard is still my favourite screenshot ever and it will remain my header image until I have a better photo (hopefully one of my lush garden later in the season 🤞)

more sprouts. we're going to reuse all these plastic cups in the future until we have to replace them with compostable ones

next year when we can afford the materials, we're planning to put 10 raised beds (2 rows of 5) on top of this year's garden area

my partner and I turned over the ground for our 12m×6m garden (40'×20'). still working on breaking up the roots but otherwise it seems like great soil full of worms! 🌱 we're currently sprouting 120+ plants to be planted here once the soil is ready

finally got some seeds planted for the now that spring is here... 🌱

i wonder if you could build a breathing apparatus that uses vortices to separate aerosolized fluid droplets from airflow

enough that they would impact and maybe be absorbed by a disinfectant material

like breathing through an array of miniaturized dyson vacuums with lysol sponges lining their canisters

we could save hundreds every year if we started canning dried beans, but we're still pretty new to . so far we've only made shelf-stable jam 🥫 ...and I think you need a pressure-canner for beans 🤔
