Sheeeeeit! Thoughts even more with the folk of MEL 😢 That's a helluva jump overnight.

@Roceal I'll have a look myself later. Bacteria are more my thing (Lactobacillus spp.) as I make zuurkool/sauerkraut rather than bread,, but kitchen microbiology is always interesting.

Someone said "is that still a thing?" when I announced I was on Mastodon. Is it?
Boost this so we actually get a few votes maybe? How far can it go?


Tried the Demoiselle "Silversmith" lemon myrtle vodka. This distillery just keeps winning me over.

Put it in my not really negroni recipe - vodka, Demoiselle absinthe, Gamel Dansk, cab merlot. Quite the flavour explosion.

And this is where I want to be. Drinking far less, but getting treats of very intense flavour. Because with current health conditions, I am losing so many flavours, can't even taste chilli. These aromatics, I can.

Can anyone identify the specific name of this data port? It actually connects to an ethernet cable using only 4 pins, two pair. This is used in the automotive industry.

please boost.

@MattHatton That's eggy milk, not scrambled egg!

Mine's just egg, a little oil, S&P. Normally add gravad lax, chopped cooked salsicia, or suchlike, and sometimes grated cheese. (It's same idea as Parmigiano-Reggiano, only this is the Aldi version from a different region.)

This is what I've been up to for the last couple of months. Self defense for women based on everyday moves. iOS version coming soon.

Please recommend me a sturdy child-proof Android tablet.

It’s not for children, it’s for our employees on the factory floor, who—despite having no trouble moving half-ton moulding tools around—will drop a tablet onto concrete on the first day.

The only app I need is a web browser. If I can lock the device to only web browsing, even better.

I am in Australia. Boosts welcome.

@twiddlekins @futzle Seconded, if you don't mind. IPA on my learning list, but unlikely to happen this year.

2020 was the year I got scared for all of my friends, not just those living in the USA. And I am in no way joking.

Health, answers? 

Well, what I've been tentatively calling fibromyalgia is now backed up by a rheumatolgist, including some issues that I wasn't.

And I have his blessing to take my favourite anti-inflammatory concurrently with aspirin, which is really going to upset the pharmacists, but is going to solve problems for me.

@MattHatton Snap. Specialist appointment in the city makes for an early start, and a 10+ hour day.

Now your conscience is clear…

Yeah, I know, socks with clogs, but these are new Birkies, and I've got a LONG day in them, and wanted to retain some of the skin on my feet.

Related: have to remember to seal the exposed cork.

I love that my client seeks my counsel, and that I am involved in design decisions, but I'm a lazy sod at the end of the day, and some of this is too much like thinking.

I jest. This gig is just about the least technical I've done, and very much being a generalist. I need more like this.

@bestthingsbot I had an email from my mother, to which I responded. She, and my brother, constitute my entire acknowledged family, and are 10,100 miles (roughly) away from me.

Should say that we only communicate a couple of times a year, hence the significance.

So this is what I was aiming for, my own interpretation of negroni. Vermouth becomes cab merlot with absinthe, bitters is Gamel Dansk (which I already know goes with the cab merlot) and gin is - a very good gin.

Without the wine, the mixed spirit Just Works - I was partly expecting a bit of a clash, but no. Together, I've achieved what I sought. Drinking far less than before, I sought a heavy flavour hit, and got it.
