Anyone have a car for sale on the cheap?

Made some little cookies.

Lifted the original recipe from a web comic.

First I spent a couple hours shelling pinon nuts. I always forget how irritatingly slow that goes.

Rolled some in cocoa powder for the second coating and some in a mixture of powdered sugar and cocoa powder.

2 more things checked off the list and quite a few more added. Still making progress. Tomorrow is baking and dinner making. Dinner will be some sort of rice noodle dish, not sure about the baking yet. I do need to experiment with using the sourdough starter with whole wheat though. I also need to remember to take photos when things come out of the oven looking fucking beautiful.

Viking Weave

Did a test chain that ended up becoming a small necklace. Used the old pinball machine solenoid coils again. Only 4 knots per rotation to see how it would come out. Ended up having to make a draw plate, which will be good to have. Did a smaller section with 7 that also worked out well.

Also ended up making a set of beaded earrings that I don't have a photo of.

Packing for Clan, found an old waffle iron which is coming with me for morning waffles.

Pulling cables [Jul. 15th, 2010|11:07 pm]

Network cables are in place and some basic switches are up and running for two of the buildings. Used one of the dogs to pull them under the buildings. Entertainment system is up and running but still needs to be added to network.

Just put some flour, water, and sugar together with some yeast scrapings from some grapes. Hopefully in a week I'll have a thriving colony of yeasts living on my desk. Then it's on to making some sourdough bread and some more english muffins.

Party people have started gathering. About 15 people coming in tonight for the party that starts tomorrow. Should be lots of drunk tipping over the course of the next couple days.

Internets! [Jun. 25th, 2010|01:47 am]

Looking into internet options for the local community...

T1 @ $289 a month
No bandwidth cap, free install
1.5Mbs up and down
3-6 families on Hughesnet @ $80-100 a month
300-425MB daily cap
1Mbs down burst speed, 65Kbs up burst speed

Would need to set up some sort of wireless repeater system and possibly a server for throttling to keep people from eating all the bandwidth. Also need to do some surveys for those repeaters to find line of sight through the damn trees and over ridges. This looks doable though.
