Wow. Stats on federated events consumed by our server this week:
Nov 3-5: 280k events each day
Nov 6: 410k events
Nov 7: 764k events
Nov 8 (which is not even over yet): 1.7 million events
This is a sustained increase over the course of about a week. I have never seen anything like it. Usually what we see in an influx is a one or two day bump and then dropoff. I have never seen a week of solid rampup before. This feels very different.
supply chain, hobby electronics lol
in the period of time it took for me to design a PCB and get the PCB back from OSH Park, the chip that I designed the PCB around has gone out of stock everywhere with a lead time of like 50 weeks 🤷🏻♀️ I could order it from LCSC overseas, but with their shipping charges, it would probably be cheaper and faster to order the adafruit breakout board that uses the same chip and harvest the chip from the breakout board
(the cloth is actually three panels that i joined with a ladder stitch. planning to use this to make a pillow case for a throw pillow)
here's some cloth i just finished weaving using a ball of "thrums" i've been keeping for the past year or so. "thrums" are the bits of yarn at the start and end of the warp that you can't usually weave because they're tied on or too far from the heddles—one way to reuse them is to tie them together and use them for weft in another project, like this. the warp for this cloth is the last bits of a bunch of cones i had sitting around, woven with a "progressive" twill (1/3, 2/2, 3/1, 2/2...)
I'm closing registration temporarily on bookwyrm.social because it's overloaded and my work schedule won't permit me to be available for BookWyrm stuff.
But don't be sad, there are a bunch of lovely instances that are not absolutely slammed at the moment! Consider trying one of them: https://joinbookwyrm.com/instances/

I have posted a very detailed write-up of my Game Boy Pocket SP mod, including details on design process and fabrication. I also included instructions on how to replicate the build yourself! https://posts.decontextualize.com/pocket-sp/
Google developed a new text editor that allows you to steer a story by asking questions ("tell me more about the fairy's day job") and got 13 well-known writers (Robin Sloane, Allison Parish, etc) to write a book of short stories with it.
