Portland Friends: I'm Leaving Town!

1 min read

I'm just in Portland this week and the last week in June!

I'm scheduling several opportunities for group hangouts, or hit me up for a bike ride/park time/whatever.

After that I'll be gone at least for the Summer/early Fall travelling and visiting my mom in S Oregon, possibly much longer as I'm considering living abroad in Europe for awhile.

Heat Welding Acetal

TIL that Acetal plastic (aka POM, Delrin), as used in the fracture-prone Kinesis Freestyle2 pivot tether, which is notoriously-difficult to bond, can be heated-tool welded using a simple soldering iron.

Yesterday I installed https://github.com/acrisci/i3-style and now my HCI has PURPLE HIGHLIGHTS! It's really quite nice. Also used the builtin rofi-theme-selector to set a nice matching rofi theme.

One habit I picked from the community is checking out external repos under ~/src/ with a canonical path based on the clone URL, which makes it easy to find your local copies. Today I made a little Python script called gic to automate that. Feel free to copy to your ~/bin!
