I survived my talk for and in the process learned something about how to use Zoom and Keynote.

I did a lot of editing in for an brief animation to use in Keynote. I thought that I might as well make a GIF out of it too.

Got a shelf up there…maybe I should lighten the colour of the angle brackets.

I put up some slotwall a little while ago to set up a small sewing/beading/chainmaille/Zoom session/etc… area.

I now want to put a shelf near the top of the slotwall. I am only going to put light things up there and attach very light lights tο the underside 😁, so I decided to modify t-slot nuts to use to attach angle brackets to the slotwall (the profile of the slots is not T-shaped).

@curved_ruler Thank you! 😎

It does look pretty close to aligning last frame to the first, doesn’t it? That was accidental 😊.

Attempts at making customized from a couple of decades ago.

Because…plastic mirror clips are cheap and…well…why not?

@tfardet To my eyes, the last one seems to flow in a way that the others don’t.

Can you tell how these pictures differ?

How do the differences affect how they are perceived by the viewer?

This is a link to a Twitter Moment that I set up 4 years ago about my investigations related to “The Creature” (which itself came into being more than 3 decades ago).


If you're ever looking to watch a random #documentary, I can highly recommend the BBC Horizon collection on Archive.org which has over 500 episodes spanning a large part of #BBCHorizon's aired episodes from 1964 to 2014; that's 50 years of snapshots of explorations of the scientific views of its time.

You can either download the entire archive, or instantly watch individual episodes.

I want to mount some slotwall (or slatwall if you prefer) on a wall and keep it relatively level. Of course, I cannot find our long level 😊. It just occurred to me that I have stuff that should be useable to make a relatively light and long level if I want to…hopefully this works.

I got a length of zipper with molded plastic teeth, but could only find the right sized slider for coil zippers in the store…so now after staring at it, I am thinking that I may be able to make a clunky version of a zipper slider myself…hmm 🤔…why haven’t I tried this before?
