A lost day of work trying to get cola.js (https://ialab.it.monash.edu/webcola/) to work with an updating graph. There's basically no documentation, just an example that doesn't work if you change it 🤷
Whoops, I've spent all morning coming up with mathematical Answer Smashes (#AnswerSmaths)
I can't explain why the first image on the wikipedia page for "Author" is this certificate for someone's proof of Fermat's last theorem: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Author#/media/File:Fermat_Last_Theorem_%22proof%22_registered_by_Ukraine_officials.jpg
I rounded off the corners so it's not as sharp. It pulled away from the printing bed a bit, which is going to make it hard to stick the two halves together. I've put some glue down for the second half.
Today I am trying to #3dprint a star for my Christmas tree. First go not very successful. (Yes I'm colourblind but I know it's green - the gold PLA arrives tomorrow)
I've spent two hours designing a Koch snowflake ornament to #3dprint, and it looks like the printer is knacked. So that's a wasted morning!
I've just released a simple #ActivityPub debugging tool. It's hosted on Glitch so you don't have to worry about spinning up servers or SSL certs etc. You clone your own copy of the project, set it up, and you can create ActivityPub accounts that can send any raw JSON payload you specify to its followers. I use it for testing new and novel ActivityPub objects, and to test compatibility with messages sent from remote servers without needing to create an account on them.
