Podcasts are great, but the ads... meh. I hooked up an esp32 and a little button click-y external board. I first tried making it a BlueTooth HID keyboard sending motion arrows. But screen lock cuts that off. So I made it send commands to skip forward back by 10, 60, and 600 seconds. Using a UDP protocol, which podbrowser.org and my own media player honor.

So when I hear an ad, I can just click to skip forward a minute!

Van conversion... ceiling. Rivet nuts are amazing, letting you mount a nut on a blind (i.e., you can't reach the other side) metal face.

Next board (locally grown/harvested wood), mounted with M5 hardware into the nuts.

Van conversion continues... nice tools for fitting fiddy contours of the van. Pergo floor w. rigid insulation underneath is in! I'm very lucky a friend lent me his slide chop saw plus table saw.

My van conversion (Promaster 1500) continues! A friend lent a table & chop saw. The walls are in & insulated, native softwood ceiling is waiting for some M5 bolts, and the floor is ready for rigid insulation after filling the lows between floor ridges.

Our poppies just reseed themselves annually. Guess which microclimate they like best? 😃

My daughter just pointed out that food is probably just an addiction. You need it, you eat, and then a few hours later... you need it again.

Using some locally grown wood for my van conversion, but it needs truing up. Took a while for the old muscle memory to meet up with my jack plane, but it worked out.

My friend and I were drinking, and has he tipped his drink back, I noted "you're killing your brain cells" 

He answered, "Yes, but only the _weak_ ones".

"I must study politics and war, that our sons may have liberty to study mathematics and philosophy. Our sons ought to study mathematics and philosophy, geography, natural history and naval architecture, navigation, commerce and agriculture in order to give their children a right to study painting, poetry, music, architecture, statuary, tapestry and porcelain."

-- John Adams

Apologies if this is a dup... from a security camera on one of our outbuildings.

This Levine HHS nominee (assistant deputy, something like that). They're such an unappealing candidate, even before the creepy way they dodged Rand Paul's questions.

Is there something else being pushed through, and this is the cover?

This is a first, the wind mounded the snow up against our front door.

My RAM Prormaster, in the planning phases for its campervan conversion. In the meantime, and epic dump run is possible.
