COVID-19 

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?

Alcohol 

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.

Footwear

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.
