I've been on Mastodon over at
I'm based in the UK and into food, land, tech and people collaborating to manage them.
I'm involved in a few projects -
https://www.ourfieldproject.org/ 40 people using online tools to collaborate managing a field
http://travellingtoolbox.org.uk/ is a mobile hackspace/workshop set up to help environmental & community projects build & fix tools and infrastructure
http://farmhack.org/wiki/soilhack-wiki Soilhack is a peer 2 peer learning network
It's sure great that the private billionaire with untraceable hypervisor backdoor access to every corporate server in the non-Chinese world isn't being both hacked and blackmailed by (checks) the Trump administration, the National Enquirer (reads news), and this week, a Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia.
That would probably be bad.
Anyway let's all forge ahead with our migration of core data services to AWS.

The Tories, ever subservient to Trumpism, have set their #Brexit bill to cause child #refugees to be separated from their families.
The House of Lords has rejected this (huzzah) so it's back to the commons.
If you have a shitty MP, they need to hear from you ASAP.

One of those, I'm sure it's made, but I can't find the right words to search it up situations...
I want a stand alone dial I can use like a scroll wheel on a mouse.
I'm on Linux, so anything I can get to generate key presses would be ideal.
Dial could be in either vertical or horizontal plane.
Now going to trawl accessibility sites.
P.S. Home brew is an option, but don't look at our soldering, it's shockingly ugly. Also, electronics would need a HowTo also.

Thanks to @andrej for sharing
HUMUS sapiens represents a compilation of soil explorations emerging from the networks of mikroBIOMIK, Hackteria, & Gasthaus – with the ambition to bring DIY and DIWO(do-it-with-others) approaches as well as an open-source-based “hacker spirit” into soil ecology.
