@christinelove I know a guy who used to play Quake with his player name set to Eleanor Rigby because he liked the idea of people suddenly having the song going through their heads while they were trying to play Quake

tech has been seriouspoisoned

no one asks some random person making a sword in their garage who they're planning to impale
no one asks someone playing with wood, making cool cutting board designs what utility the design plays, or why they need the 50th cutting board this year

and yet, many tech projects (including actually useful ones!) will have brigades of people jumping in and asking "why does this exist?" or "who is this for?"

get the fuck outta here lmao
if it's not for you, you don't have to be a dick about it

Here’s a clearer view of the supports minus my gross finger. The actual benchy was just a sad pancake instead of a model. Probably need to tweak the amount of attachment

Built a dedicated resin printing area today and had some middling success (and some of the usual resin accidents)

As I kind of suspected, LCD 3D printer resin works for Daiso resin art kits and it’s a lot cheaper (albeit thinner)
