thread I've bought a new phone
as is my little personal tradition, this is the first place I've bookmarked.

What's first in your phone bookmarks?

Otherwise, any exciting plans for the weekend?
permalink going to
a beach.

I don't make many new bookmarks, what with just syncing everything in Chrome
permalink I use Chrome exclusively for one of the client things at work
it's just less faff to use Firefox on my phone so I don't have to dick about with synching.

Apart from here I've just got bookmarks of things I keep meaning to read and never do.
permalink I rarely use bookmarks nowadays
I used to always set my phone wallpaper as a picture of my old phone, with the picture of the older phone o its screen....

Unfortunately I lost a phone and broke the chain
permalink I rarely use bookmarks, I rely instead on autocomplete
which is annoying after I clear my browser history.

Four sets of friends are moving house. One is done, another is moving into their old house and that's happening at the moment, then on 1 September another moves into our street then some point soon another moves. So this weekend has mostly been taking ikea furniture apart and putting it back together a mile and a half away. And we did online church this morning, which doesn't take very much prep and is only half an hour but does sap a lot of energy.
permalink Alt: anybody know about home laser cutter / cnc?
I'd like one. Or just a laser cutter.
permalink ... the diode ones are a bit shit, visible light so can't do we through stuff
and not powerful enough to cut much, but ok at etching.

The "40w" CO2 lasers are known as k40s. They're cheapo versions of proper laser cutters, and will arrive in a condition somewhere between deadly and 'will work OK but a few simple improvements will get it running well'. And there's no way of telling which yours will be.

I've found an AliExpress vendor who has UK stock, so it's wick and avoids import duty. And it has an ammeter rather than digital % power display (which is good because 100 on the display is likely to mean 150% which will kill your laser tube).
permalink those pesky 007 agents bothering you?
what are you cutting? i wouldn't mind one that cuts fabric.. i'm guessing that will be much weaker..
permalink Don't really know. Wood, probably.
And perspex.
permalink 50mm Corten Steel?
permalink It'll do 3mm of ply.
Anyway, I've ordered one.
permalink How much?
I too have a burning (sorry) desire for one, albeit with no real need or justification of any sort.
permalink About £250 from Ali express with a UK warehouse.
I expect to spend another £100 getting it working properly
permalink my first bookmark is a recipe for flapjacks
The weekend was exciting. I saw friends in the flesh for the first time since March. I didn't realise how much I missed socialising.

How was yours?
