Pasigis iom da tempo kun interreta tradukisto; kreante po-dosierojn por Known kaj ĝiaj defaŭltaj kromprogramoj. En Esperanto, franca, germana, hispana, klingona ne tradukas al gettext.

Have been spending a little time with an online translator; making po files for Known and its default plug-ins. In Esperanto, French, German, Spanish, Klingon does not translate to gettext for some reason.

You either go for a fright from your youth: the prospect of being embalmed alive in Young Sherlock Holmes.

Thunderbolt and lightning, very, very frightening me
(Galileo) Galileo, (Galileo) Galileo, Galileo Figaro magnifico

Persistence — working one’s way through all the filaments of the spectrum, and re–printing when there is under–extrusion 😕

Aka two years with Lithium ions. (A year with Lithium)

16 October 2016–’18

The garage wall–mounted home battery (attached to 21 solar panels and their associated hardware) continues to allow me to run nearly grid–free on brighter days.

Year to date

My personal transportation has its own Li–ion battery although circumstances are such that it doesn’t get many outings at the moment …
