  2. Finished my couch table. The legs are aluminium extrusions (40mm x 40mm) and the plate is low quality oak that I stained and varnished myself. I also rounded the edges and cut threads for the felted table feet. This project turned out to be more expensive and require more work than anticipated but it's my own. The good thing is that the table height is higher than the seating height and my legs fit comfortably under the table. http://rainbowdash.net/attachment/875992

  3. I'm thinking about buying cheap Thinkpad T43 keyboards in order to make them normal PC USB Keyboards. I found a Github project that offers code for a Teensy 3.2 microcontroller and a PCB schematic to make that conversion possible https://github.com/thedalles77/USB_Laptop_Keyboard_Controller/tree/master/IBM%20T43%20Files All the new keyboards available out there are garbage. I hate mechanical clicky keyboards. I have already a Thinkpad USB Keyboard but I want to have one at work and I want a spare one.

  4. I successfully upgraded an old and unused backpack with hooks in order to attach to a bicycle rack. https://i.imgur.com/PQNMPwC.jpg Instead of buying such a bag I only spent a fraction of that. I invested 3€ in materials (not counting the aluminium bar that was scrap) while a bought one would be at least 6 times that. Now I can carry twice the stuff when going shopping.

  6. I've been looking into 3d modeling the "companion cube"-style wider crates from Star Wars. There are tons of small and subtle differences between series. http://rainbowdash.net/attachment/875956

  7. @scribus I'll use a piece of black cardboard as a backing material like in the attached picture. I did the same with all my framed comics. The picture I want to frame is still being flattened. It has been shipped rolled up, so it'll take some time to straighten. I could make a passepartout but I don't like them as they need to overlap with the picture. I could buy a custom made frame but it costs 2.5 times as much as the closest off-the-shelf model. http://rainbowdash.net/attachment/875948

  8. I'm annoyed that my local hardware store has not all the different lengths of M3 screws I need. I had to order an assortment box off Amazon. I need those screws for a new mount for my 3d printer hotend and new and quieter fans https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4460970

  11. @scribus Sure! It'll save me a trip to the dentist. I was watching Adam Savage's Tool Tip and couldn't resist https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RWxCvMzvxlQ I wanted a vacuform for quite some time but I'm too lazy building one myself or it was too expensive. 130 Eurobucks I can spend for an all-in-one device that looks solidly built (better than I could do).

  12. The Wii U had good games. Most of them got ports (or superior sequels) on the Switch or other systems. At this point there are only a handful of games exclusive to the Wii U like Zombi U, Starfox Zero and Wind Waker HD and Twilight Princess HD. http://rainbowdash.net/attachment/875925

  14. @scribus I get what you mean. I just wanted a slightly female-coded (to my monkey brain) lizard-woman that doesn't scream "look at my bewbs" or appears to be sexualized. The attached image is the one I will use as it is currently the closest to what I'm imagining for a female lizardfolk druid potion brewer. http://rainbowdash.net/attachment/875898

  15. Practical 3d printing: I repaired my clamp (left 3d-printed, right original). I don't want to test how much force the 3d-printed part can withstand. At least the broken clamp can be used to hold something with light force. http://rainbowdash.net/attachment/875791

  22. Prepared the calendar for printout. My mother still uses a physical calendar for everything. She wants a month view with as big boxes for each day as possible to write in. Also Monday as the first day, and Saturday and Sunday in red. All commercial calendars do not support her needs. Luckily this exists https://texample.net/tikz/examples/birthday-calendar/ With some adjustments I could customize it enough to make her happy.

  23. It depresses me that there are less and less new PC cases with space for optical drives (CD/DVD/BluRay). I'm starting to look around for a new PC. As my PC is older and my case has only USB2 ports and an unreliable headphone jack, as well as showing wear I want a new one. My current case is from Cooler Master from 2006. This one in black/silver https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/G/01/electronics/detail-page/B0009SZQY8.2.jpg

  25. Oooh. A potential vaccine was developed (German news site https://www.tagesschau.de/inland/biontech-corona-impfstoff-103.html ). It needs two injections 3 weeks apart. A week after the second injection an immunity to COVID is expected. I hope it is not a fluke.

  27. I've missed somehow this piece of news https://bleedingcool.com/tv/paper-girls-sets-march-2021-for-filming-open-casting-call-released/ I read the Paper Girls comic and it's cool that it gets adapted to a TV show. I'm just worried that it will be as lengthy as the comic. At points the plot was very drawn out. I liked the whole series nonetheless.

  29. @scribus Then it's probably more of interest for you to use a stinking normal FDM 3D printer, printing a model with PLA plastic, putting it in a clay mold, burning the PLA out of the mold, and then pour your metal in the cavity. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCkEYj8wtK3aEW8vSGhlB43g

  30. I'm somewhat unhappy with Unity's HTML5 WebGL export. I have exported my game jam game https://adiwan.itch.io/lasso-loop-whiplash-webgl and it has ugly z-fighting and weird lighting issues at some overlapping geometry. I looked into everything I could, like adjusting the far and near plane or all shadow and lighting settings. I'm stumped. The compiled versions are fine.
