    • New note by bobjonkman 29 November 2020
      Bread machines are great. I haven't bought a loaf of bread in about three years. If #sonTwo's bread machine has custom settings, I recommend 20 min knead time, changing the rise times (1hr, 1.5hrs, 1.5hrs) and at least 60-70 min bake time. A good recipe is 1 cup water, 2.5 cups all-purpose flour, 2 tbsp […]

      RT @lnxw48a1 #sonTwo texted to tell me that his in-laws bought them a bread machine. Me: Oh, cool! I was thinking the same thing, but it's beyond my current budget. They can sometimes be competitive, but I'm more of *good, you're helping take care of our kids and grandkids*

      I'm near the Great Lakes (about an hour's drive from either Lake Ontario or Lake Huron, depending whether I go South or West). It was 5C for most of the day, about 40F for your USians. Apparently that's normal for this time of year...

      RT @lnxw48a1 About halfway through today's #YoCo ( #yogurt and #coffee ). Indoor temperature is 60°F, outdoor temperature is 30°F. Outdoor cats' water dish has about 0.5in / 1cm of ice on top. Very glad I'm not near the Great Lakes right now.

      bobjonkman favorited something by lnxw48a1: @vegos I agree. To most organizations, their primary concern is reach. So they congregate on big #corpocentric #socnets, even when the central corporation running things is actively hostile to their point of view. Then they're butthurt when their accounts are shadowbanned. Years ago, I tried to persuade some local Black […]

      There's also Megablocks, the precursor to Duplo. And there are also Micro Megablocks, the same size as LEGO. The kits for Micro Megablocks were much better than the LEGO kits, making slightly larger models but using only standard bricks. The LEGO models were smaller, depending on many custom pieces specific to the kit, which were […]

In addition to the GNU/Linux Resources in Kitchener-Waterloo there are several other places to look online if you need support. Here’s a list of the GNU/Linux Resources I use.
