Tooting for public libraries! I haven't used our local library in a very long time, but it just underwent huge renovations so today we went and updated our contact info and got new cards.

Y'all. Free ebooks sent to my Kindle. Free movies that I can watch from home. Free subscriptions to Great Courses and Indie Flicks.

Basically, free life enrichment. What an institution!

I always search for light. The way light transforms. The mundane to the poetic. The ordinay to the eerie. The plain to the beautiful.

Oslo, November 2022.

You will never appreciate dynamo lights more than when you have to pop to the shop to get a missing ingredient.

No fuss, just get on your bike and ride.

To ensure cars didn’t take back control of #Paris streets as the pandemic was “ending” (no, it hasn’t ended), like they have in so many cities, Mayor #AnneHidalgo made sure that 60k parking spaces and many streets were permanently transformed into seating for restaurants, people places and bike-lanes.

Leadership.

The new Paris 2021-26 urban biking plan will invest €250 million to, among other things, make 52km of pandemic bike-lanes permanent; add 130km of new bike-lanes; add 130K new bike parking spots; & teach all elementary school students to bike.

I am so grateful to public libraries for making e-books available. They’ve been such a help during the pandemic & the extended un(der) employment dance remix. Whew, really, just thank you, librarians.💕

cozy in a mac rom scarf. specifically this is a slice of the ROM from a Macintosh IIsi. here's how it was made. i used @th 's script github.com/osresearch/prom/blo and the mac roms on archive dot org archive.org/details/mac_rom_ar

if you have ImageMagick already installed:

$ perl hex2png.pl -y 1280 -w 32 mac_rom_archive_-_as_of_8-19-2011/36B7FB6C\ -\ Mac\ IIsi.ROM \ | convert - maciisi.png

Then a slice four columns wide was taken of the resulting image and knit into a scarf. The scarf is 1280 pixels/knit stitches long and therefore wraps natively in the columns of the scarf. if you want to make your own, you'll need a hacked consumer knitting machine or an industrial knitting machine or someone with a setup to machine knit it for you.
