@TechnicalKO The Deed is Done. Smiffytech has been nudged back to what I really want to do, another company (letting accountant thrash that out with my boss, it’s just a paper exercise) will be doing the day gig.
So I just ordered a cheapie CNC router where you can swap the spindle motor/chuck out for a 500mW (not MW as per listing!) laser head. Plan is to get the feel with that, then split for anything bigger, a CNC’d Sieg mill, and a 40W laster cutter.
I’ll tell you this for nowt - Time Machine backups as a means of setting up a new machine bring a whole new meaning to the term “fucking useless.” If I were to do it again, I’d just drop a tarball of my home directory onto a clean install, and have done with it.
And go back to rsync for backups of everything not in git.
So, not sparking joy, neither is academia.edu, haven't logged into Facebook in over two years, and always hated that platform.
Declutter time. Go where the social is, and goodbye to the spam, and the cognitive overload of dealing with email that is 90% circulars.
I also look nothing like any of my previous avis, so there's that.
As of the 1st of August, one place you won't find me is here. LinkedIn jumped the shark and turned into nothing but a spam factory too long ago.
I just posted to LinkedIn:
This was such a good idea when it started. Trust networks, connecting with people that I knew, and the people they knew. Now it's constant randoms wanting to connect with a generic message.
I'm not looking for a job. I'm working for Frisk, I don't ever want to work for anyone else, unless it's myself, in a very different sector, picking up my R&D. So why am I even on this platform.
@TechnicalKO The beta blockers were obvious when I stopped them, the antibiotics with simultaneous improvement in sinus - didn't know that a long-term infection could fuck you up like this. The sudden lack of cognitive impairment is freaking J out a bit, especially when occurring simultaneously with all these falls.
@TechnicalKO I really do seem to have my mojo back - after a long time without rainwater other than drinking/cooking, (and not seeing an inexpensive solution,) I have. Would connect the untouched (and full) 45kl tank to the other 3 x 45kl tank on a 25mm balance line - LDPE irrigation, because no pressure, for the cost of 150m of pipe, plus a few fittings. It's weird getting creativity back after 5 years struggling day to day just to function.
*eyeroll* Very customer-friendly message. BTW, I never opted into such communication in the first place.

Beta blockers have been in my past since February, and ten weeks into the doxycline - WHOA. I haven't been able to taste for weeks and weeks, and that even includes birdseye chillis. Previous couple of days, the hot mustard I have in my lunches has come over as - maybe I'm don't need half a jar per slice anymore. It actually appears to be a bit hot. Last night I COULD NEARLY TASTE MY DINNER. But this pales into comparison...
I have been - indisposed for a while. Like five years. a combination of beta blockers, and a long-running (as in years) sinus infection, which went acute just over a year ago, and has been reluctant to be controlled. Wind forward to about ten weeks ago, when I was REALLY sick, GP gave green light to my suggestion of long-term therapeutic dose of doxycline, which I've had before, tolerate well, and it works.
