Mum likes to do scrapbook-cum-quotation things with quotes she gets out of her sf novels and bits of ephemera she picks up from all over. Here's one where she repurposed one of @daedalus 's stickers.
there's also a few ceremonies where the warrior about to be sacrificed spends an entire year living in luxury, then gets married to four women, drops his garmets, picks up a weapon, and rushes into ritual battle with priests who throw him into a fire.
so really, live your best life and go down swinging to defend the vulnerable. its what the gods want.
white christianity is teaching the vulnerable that their greatest asset is to sacrifice themselves for the strong to continue on
indigenous mexica spirituality teach you to face death with a grin and a weapon in hand because you're gonna go down fighting a fucking god to defend the vulnerable from eternal night and famine
we literally are not the same
And I still have all of my fingers, and never been bitten by the angry pixies that live in the capacitors.
I guess my teachers did well instilling a strong safety ethos in me during highschool and uni. Power tools, all things sharp, and large voltage/amps all get *lots* of respect from me.
I did learn a couple of tips for jigs to make the whole thing go much easier, though. And I should probably switch my technique to use a guide sled instead of hand use. Careful as I am, I've never been entirely comfortable with it. Power tools are scary.
I was checking to see if there was some magic hack to get a table saw to cut bevels and… nope. Gotta angle the saw.
Roof will be spare laserlite, partly to help keep leaves from the oak tree from accumulating on it, partly because it's what I have left over from replacing the laserlite on the back veranda.
This is basically what it should look like, sans roof.
I'm using leftover timber from the garage build, and unfortunately don't have enough termiblue treated stuff to do bit of the frame that'll rest on the bricks. I'm not super keen on having cyanide treated timber close to what builds us eggs to eat, either. I'll just see how badly it rots and maybe need to replace it later.
Soil levels are decidedly not even, so there's a bit of infill required so the chickens don't have to climb a cliff to get in and out.
System still working without a crash for 2 days, so I'm going to declare the power supply the culprit and the problem fixed. Hooray!
Yep. System still working well past the time when it would normally have shit itself.
So far the new power supply appears to have solved the problem.
