I grew a wallet in my basement!
I’ve been growing #kombucha scobies specifically to turn into #vegan leather, and my first batch is finally done. I’m going to write a recap and tutorial. In the meantime, here are pictures of my new wallet, made from kombucha. It feels like a cross between heavy plastic sheeting and leather.

Something I learnt b in therapy, that might help others.

Make active goals.

This means to not set goals on states, but on actions.

For example:

Instead of "I finish this thing" make your goal "I work on this thing today"

Reason is, you can't really control the state, as a lot can come up.

But you can control more that you work on something. And any amount of work would suffice to reach that goal. So even if you work in it for just an hour, it might not be finished, but you worked on it

TL:DR

Set goals that are active, time constraint and reachable and best start with "I want to"

Don't set goals that are passive, start with "I must", are unreachable or don't have any time constraint.

On Linux, I like workspaces to organize my work. When I am coding, I typically have a browser on a different workspace to look things up or check on fedi, or maybe even two different ones.

But modern browsers use CPU all the time, even when they are on a separate workspace.

So I wrote a script which can put selected apps to sleep unless they are on the current workspace.

It's a command line script, run it with the -h switch for help:

ws-switch-mon.pl -h

Wegen dem #Mietendeckel inserieren aktuell weniger Immobilieneigentümer*innen leerstehende Wohnungen.

Wenn Klassenkampf von oben mehr spekulativer Leerstand bedeutet, muss die Antwort #besetzen sein! Nehmt euch die leeren Wohnungen!

Was viele Menschen, ich auch, die Doku schreiben ja schnell mal vergessen und was es gleichzeitig so schwierig macht ist: Die Leute die eure Doku lesen sind in der Regel nicht in der Materie drin. Die machen das mal alle paar Monate oder Jahre und selten den ganzen Tag. Selbstverständlichkeiten sind eben nicht klar.

Daher: Holt euch Feedback für eure Doku! Fragt Leute die nicht den ganzen Tag in eurem Projekt drin sind, fragt Leute die thematisch nur am Rand oder mit Teilen davon zu tun haben.

"Hello" began as a shortening of "Hell no" for the natural reaction when someone tries to talk to you.
