Wife & I have been asked to run the timing for the Taranaki Car Club round of the national #hillclimb series, in October.
We haven’t done it for over 3 years. Turns out everyone since we stopped has NFI what they’re doing, so for a national level event we’ve been drafted. 😆
We did it for 3 or so years before that, and had it set up in our living room before our first event so we knew we had a handle on it. It’s really not rocket science, just be organised.
Just ordered from an online store.
Noted it was http and not https (actually Firefox told me as I was entering my address into the fields) and I was a bit 🤔 about it, but carried on.
The payment was through the processors site which I've seen before and is all ok.
So I completed the transaction, which included setting up a new account, and recieved a confirmation email.
They sent my password to me in the account confirmation email.
Toaster design Show more
The repairable flatpack toaster project is about designing a toaster that can be assembled and repaired by users. The purpose of the project is using the toaster as an example to demonstrate the feasibility of DIY assemblable and repairable consumer products. It also serves the purpose to challenge the way how products are designed and manufactured in general.

In hindsight, having 99.999% of our planet's vast computational capacity dedicated to hedge funds and web browser ad malware bots fighting each other for scraps of cash is pretty much exactly what we should have expected, extrapolating from WarGames and throwing in the one surprise that the forever war of capitalism hasn't yet gone fully nuclear.

#PlantGeeks, can you identity this cutey? It lives in a coworker's office and she doesn't know what it is either. I'm hoping she'll let me have an offset or cutting.
