Here's a tip that can keep your hands clean when working with finishes, cleaning, or waxing:

In my I use various finishes that require the residue to be wiped off the surface after application. Nitrite gloves are a must, but they often create a slippery grip and don't absorb the residue. Old athletic socks that would otherwise be thrown out, when pulled over each gloved hand, allow both hands to work the surface while maintaining a working grip. Dispose of or wash out.

I have a real problem with woodworkers that suddenly tout an undeniable need to buy a very expensive brand/type power tool after they have admitted to an unsafe practice that caused an injury. I don't question that said injury would have been much worse on a 'regular' tool, but the *real* lesson that should be learned in these cases is that unsafe practice can result in injury.
doesn't promote proper tool use, just as a prophylactic to avoid injury.

ANSWER: its because a lot of the time technology is a shiny fancy veneer away from what the schools actually need (more teachers that are better paid, smaller classroom sizes, less reliance on metrics)

My dog bit my balls by accident earlier. The look of guilt in his eyes - he knew. He just knew.

A late present for the wife, finally finished: a Rockler Rocking Pizza Cutter blade with custom designed cherry handle and sheath.

The finish 3 coats of WATCO Danish Oil (natural) on the handle and one on the sheath. Right now the dungeon workshop is too cold for polyurethane, so I'll apply a couple of coats of satin wipe-on this Spring.

What you have to do is either record some sentences that they give you or evaluate the recordings that other people submit.
All that in your native language of course.
The funny thing is that the sentences that are being used for the Greek language are all from a childrens book from 1910..
Not only you have to listen-read this funny fictional names but also there are so many words that nobody uses since i don't know when 😂

Anime keeps my id young. Well, younger than the rest of me. <oh, my aching back...>

I love it when an opening or ending theme song hits me just right. I feel like dancing to this one...if I could dance:

"Welcome to Demon School!"

I posted a while back that one of my goals for this year was to learn Python. Today I started the process.

I'm still hoping to find the rare and illusive wild creature: 'Python 3 for Ultra Dummies'. Until then, I have a fresh stick to bite on, plenty of bourbon for medicating, and a car battery charger to wake up stuck pixels in my brain case.

Does anyone know any that is in need of ?
I do mirror the popular ones already at mirror.linux.pizza/ but I am looking into helping out smaller that does not have the money or capacity to spend on bandwith.

I've sent the link to my youngest daughter, now in her mid-30s, an avid amateur racer, along with her live-in boyfriend. they haven't show nay interest in bike camping, but maybe they will when they see this and get my offer to help build one or two. This would be a great father-daughter-future-son-in-law project. 😉

An accident a couple of years back shattered my right heel and damaged the cartilage at the base of the ankle. I have limited mobility (ankling) and joint pain when used. This Spring I hope to find that I can still ride some distance without the potential to cause further damage to the ankle. Regardless of the outcome, I will always be interested in cool projects like this one:
