This is a great build log for converting a garage to a habitable workshop space.

Feeling bad that I've not done anything close to this with my garage yet!

The Mastodon instance has about 3600 users, only 4 (me included) are supporting @tchambers with a little contribution every month.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy: @pete @tagomago @obsolete29 @CrowderSoup

For the newcomers who own a blog, check it's a nice #challenge

The acquisition of Twitter by the egocentric Musk, made people go away from the centralized platform. And, that’s a good thing IMHO.

We’ve seen many new comers to the Fediverse recently, and since we are Friday, let’s do a #FF also known as #FollowFriday or #FollowFolks with accounts created less than six months ago.
