selfish, eye contact 

TFW one cannot find an umbrella at home during the rainy season and the best next thing is picking a hat 🤠

I may do less lately, but I'm still doing at least one sourdough sandwich bread loaf a week. Here is today's loaf proofing.

There go the release notes. Now some quick testing before generating the final tarball, uploading it, and doing release announcements.

Anything that has to do with a non-incremental WebKit build takes always at least ~15 minutes, even with a beefy build machine 🕰️

TFW one accidentally marks all the items as read in the feed reader.

Unsurprisingly, my website is at least readable in Mothra, a very bare bones (and nineties!) web browser included in . When what you have is well structured semantic HTML almost any user agent can do a decent job with it.

Now *that* was a good walk. Specially taking into account that this was pushing a pram and partly in the city, where street lights kill your average speeds :blobpats:

It has been a while since the last so here's today's loaf: simple only wheat sourdough, proofed on a basket, which lets the shape of the rattan canes be noticed on its surface.

Current status: the distcheck is building from the generated tarball.

As expected, the DC boost converter works much better with the solar panel installation at the cottage. In the middle of the day it even manages to charge the battery.

Today's : two loaves of sourdough sandwich bread. Can't wait to try how these have turned out, they look and smell delicious!

TFW you change a bitwise not to a boolean not and suddenly your program starts to work as expected, even while apparently both operations would have rendered the same result.

Again, bitten by the C/C++ operator precedence rules.

Ah, I forgot to post the brioche experiment results: the dough didn't raise much, so instead of soft and airy the pastries were doughy and somewhat dense. Nevertheless, they tasted very good so we ate them. I'll have to figure out what the issue was here and give it another try.

Still no idea what I'm doing. Allegedly those should have risen a bit in the last two hours, but they have done barely so. Anyway, they will go to the oven soon and we'll see what comes out 🤷‍♂️

Well, the brioche dough is not shaggy at all after twenty hours in the fridge and some light kneading as advised in the recipe. I guess I knew what I was doing after all :thounking:

While I have to still wait for my brioche dough to be ready, I made some almond cookies.

Today's is a wheat-spelt sourdough loaf with sesame seeds. It looks a bit plain and boring on the outside, but maybe it will taste great. Let's wait one hour for it to cool down and find out!

Well, it turns out that making focaccia was easier than expected. The dough needs to be shaggy, but then shaping only involves throwing it on the pan in whatever shape it takes and extending it to make it 2-3cm tall.

Well, this turned out to be less ugly than I initially thought. Let's build it and see whether it works^W explodes 🤷
