Dramatic happenings at the mill last night! A huge dead tree fell over the bridge, causing a minor earthquake. Nobody hurt apart from a fence (which fortunately doesn’t even belong to us)

First attempt to grow a pineapple plant failed, but I will continue as I have had visions of my life with a pineapple plant and they are good visions

Some new graphics to be laser-engraved on a synth front panel… any guesses for which synth?

I’ll be at the Mazurki Festival Tagowisko Instrumentów (Musical Instrument Exhibition) with my instruments on Saturday the 28th. It’s not on the English programme, but is on the Polish one so is definitely happening! Come and try out my gurdies, and see my (experimental) MIDI system and hybrid synth in action!

Hurdy Gurdy #7, finished and picked up by the customer!

3x chanters, 2x drones, 2x trompettes, 4x capos, 4x sympathetic strings, 3 channel active preamp system. Very happy with how this one came out — in fact I need to retro-fit some of the electronics changes onto my own instrument… No more 50Hz hum!

#screenshot: The absolute worst page-load time I’ve ever experienced:

The developer console shows a request for an asset supposedly having taken 16091.9 days to complete.

@LapTop006 @kevinmarks somehow I doubt that’s going to end well, e.g. “I just had a great idea for a thing!”

“Check out this thing I just bought!”

“There’s a thing on my wrist!”

“I’m wearing a thing!”

“I need a raspberry pi and some sensors so I can make a thing!”

It’s hardly a specific term which enables efficient, productive communication :)

Anyone trying to buy stackable ("Arduino-style") headers from eBay, "elec_mall2012" is the only Chinese seller I've come across who actually shipped stackable headers. All the others shipped normal ones.

The other sellers were always very good about refunds, but shipping takes so long that it's still a waste of time. Would recommend buying from elec_mall2012, or just shelling out the extra few euros to buy the headers from a US or EU component dealer.

Is the wikipedia main page always this weird, or is it an April 1 thing?

Edit: it is an April Fool's thing
