Oh, life update.
Last night I played DnD with some other hackspacers.
3 of whom had never played a role playing game before!

Good fun. Finishing the campaign in a couple weeks.

I've never played DnD with terrain and models and stuff, so that was interesting too.

Oh, here's a commodore PET which resides at Nottinghack and recently got cleaned and repaired.

Todoist did a Year in Review thing which is really cool!

I am very much not a morning person, clearly.
The task completion graph by time aligns well with how long it takes me to get into the day and actually be productive.

Scary monster suit 

I got some adorable little boxes for shipping/gifting my Brass-LED jewelry things.

My process has got SO much better recently and they're coming out really clean.

I'm gifting a bunch of these for Christmas because I finally feel like they're sturdy and pretty enough for others to actually wear.

Also thinking about a better name for these things. Perhaps 'Brasslight'? Because they're not just pendents now.

Today I bought some tiny boxes for my Brass-LED jewelry and folding the nets up into teeny-tiny boxes is extremely satisfying.

It all slots together so precisely!

Trying some new shapes for pendents tonight.

I'm excited for the star shape for festive times. Getting red and green LEDs for those.
Possibly as gifts for tree decorations.

.Starting to wonder if adding a 2nd Cross bar under the batteries on the backs of the pieces would help make adding the vertical back bar less difficult. As well as helping the battery stay in better.

Trying some higher quality, thinner solder tomorrow to see if that helps, even a little.

Today was good!
I was at the hackspace all afternoon working on pendents, spending time with @iguana and doing a bunch of sorting and tidying with another fellow hacker.

I made a blue pendent for a friend that turned out really well.

We discovered that Nottinghack has an obscene amount of (mostly sorted and labeled) integrated circuits in some cardboard boxes. Various kinds.

Today I went to a retro video games fair.
I came home with a PlayStation (SCPH-1002, PAL), Tomb Raider 2, Tomb Raider Chronicles & 3 fancy semi-transparent Japanese PlayStation memory cards.

I'm still missing Tomb Raider, The last Revelation on PlayStation, and Angel of Darkness on PS2.

Later we went to a board games shop, where I found this 1987 Star Trek Compendium.

Finally, we visited Nottingham's Goose Fair.

Busy day!

Ich in der Regen und Dunklen gerannt, mit The Expanse Musik. Es war Awesome!

Super atmospheric and gritty and just fantastic.

I swapped the battery in my 2014 laptop because laptops haven't increased in power, or screen tech enough that I really need to get a new one.

Its a i5-4200u with a 1080p IPS screen. It only has 4GB of RAM, but I rarely fill that up.

The battery was very, very dead though. Miss-reporting it's capacity and just conking out at random times.

β˜• Coffee β˜• 

Split my evening between making some LED jewellery at the hackspace, showing @iguana around the hackspace, and then going home and finishing watching the film 'Labyrinth' .

Its been real nice, no stress evening.

The hacking on electronic jewellery is a good break from working on a computer.

The film is a classic I'd never seen before.

is so good.
