Opinion about 3D printer and paper printer 

Whelp!
How can I find people who share my interests?

(3D printing, coding with kids etc)

Not sure I am doing this right...

I've tried searching for related terms via my mastodon instance ; chasing the few hashtags and discussions I see pop up in my timeline ; searching joinpeertube.org/ ...

Is there any global mastodon search anywhere that would at least yield results from public timelines?

Bespoke planters made to measure for each plant to better hide the original pots

Thanks to TinkerCAD it is trivial to change a few numbers (variables) and generate a differently sized planter for the next plant :)

for the last 10 years i periodically ask someone whos really into 3d printers "are 3d printers actually good yet?" and they're like "yeah! theyre amazing!" and then i actually do my own research and they still take like 19 hours to print anything and they can't print anything bigger than about 25 or 30cm wide, and even the best ones have lines on everything you have to sand off, or resin curing bullshit to deal with, and even the ones that cost $4000 still have several (or all) of these problems

Here’s a fantastic rabbit-hole for you, just in time for whatever lockdown phase you’re currently in ;)

I like the term "Fediverse", because it's a portmanteau of "federation", "universe" and "diverse", and I think that describes it quite accurately ☺️

Did I mention that the kids love the PrintABloks?
After the Christmas presents were unwrapped, they went back to play with the old toys! :D

Every time I need to persist some simple data on a web app, I go through a dreaded “which database should I use?” process which – given I’m not building a global panopticon – is *always* overkill so I’ve decided to bite the bullet and write a very basic transparent (using Proxy) in-memory database for Site.js that flushes to JSON files on each write and is available on all your routes so you can use it without knowing you’re using a database. Working title: What Database? :)

Check out these amazing sportspeople...err, sportsmarbles 🤣

The sports commentator of the Marble Olympics is truly hypnotising!

The GouvAlert.lu app is the local Slashdot effect.

You won't be able to access meteolux.lu right now, due to the silly weather alerts that the app puts out.

If you're an avid open-source user who would love to help advance a project, there's a lot you can contribute whether you can program or not:

Provide constructive feedback, file bug reports, improve the documentation or help out maintaining the web & social media presence. Spread the word and recommend the projects you love to others (btw, I run Arch 😂)

Say "thank you" and tell developers to "keep up the great work". That form of contribution means a lot more than you could possibly imagine.

Do you ever wonder how many planets / ecosystems died because one of their species misbehaved?

We’re pretty “sure” that there are other forms of life out there... well, what about other forms of stupidity ? ;)
