I can also recommend https://legiblenews.com/. It's the news headlines sourced from Wikipedia, just text, just the events, 0 spin.

Jeg er nyankommen til Emilio Hestepis's oeuvre. Pt rålytter jeg "Bygget kun 4 læsehest" med stor fornøjelse. Havde aldrig tænkt på bibliotekarer som pushere for filologer. God fornøjelse: https://soundcloud.com/emilio-hestepis/bygget-kun-4-laesehest

Fuck, I love this. https://window-swap.com. Look out of someone else's window for a change, a nice change, at the moment. This is what makes the internet great!

Watched "Chair Times" today, a documentary discussing the development of the chair from 1807 until today. From luxury good, to functional object, to an art statement and back to luxury again. Well worth watching https://www.vitra.com/en-gb/page/chair-times. Via @kottke

Tasty and friendly pedal-delivered beer from @brockleybrewery. Not my first delivery, not my last https://i.imgur.com/eJRMCJc.jpg

I resurrected my old blog from the death of a PHP upgrade. I haven't updated it since 2013. It has a blogroll that I haven't updated in at least as long. I went through some of the sites I have on it They are still great sites. I like that smell of old handcrafted websites.

I managed to get some sourdough going, thanks in no small part to Hessam for nudging me for a good part of a decade to just baking do it. Thank you. Below is loaf #2 in its natural habitat. It's not perfect, but it's heaps better than my other bread baking routine. That one still makes a good bread, but the texture and taste is so much different from the sourdough bread.

   

As if that wasn't enough to propel me to hipster stardom, I also managed to sharpen my knives, after neglecting them for 7 years. Shame on me. Now they can actually cut again. When I bought them they came with a sharpening stone, that I successfully ignored using, but for some reason managed to hold on to in spite of moving 3 times since I bought the knives. Photo is from before I started sharpening, which explains why it looks so neat:

I survived the sharpening, and the knives can now cut again, instead of merely displacing matter by force.

Apart from that, looks like it will be a while before normality returns.
