    I’m working on a system that arranges what I’ll be eating for the coming couple of days, with the idea that it’ll save me money and prevent food waste by managing ingredients cleverly.
    Right now, I’ve built a backend using Craft CMS, running on a raspberry pi at home, in which I can enter recipes and ingredients. Each ingredient has an expiration date, each recipe knows how much of every ingredient it must use.
    The system will send me a shopping list periodically and I will check off what I’ve bought, this way, by definition, the system will know the contents of my fridge within a week without me having explicitly fed everything in.

    Furthermore, I’ve built a frontend, and modified a kobo e-reader I’ve had lying around to display the recipe I’ll cook today and tomorrow. I mounted it on the wall, and seeing as it is an e ink display, it works gorgeously with my physical location: the sun sets into my kitchen when I cook, and the display is clear as can be.

    I still have to code the logic for meal planning (it’s all figured out, just not implemented.)
    It’ll take into account how often I’ve eaten each recipe, what recipe is (nearly) cookable, and if something absolutely has to go away, it’ll select the cheapest ingredients to throw away (and alert me of the waste, so that I can do something about it a head of time.)

    Seriously? Honestly I can’t tell anymore hahah, I reasoned it came from “wat matig zeg,” for example. Keep in mind Dutch is my second language!

    Off topic but I get the sneaking suspicion that you’re Dutch? :) ( I read “pretty average that” and that made me think that.)

    I love good coffee, however I found that just buying good beans and using a percolator works for me :) Easy and consistent.

  5. Comment on The Sandman comic series has probably been the strongest influence on my life in recent times. Does this resonate? in ~books

    That’s pretty accurate. Have you heard/read Gaiman saying he doesn’t consider this rape rape? I think Gaiman is into the business of writing stories that could be true. They don’t necessarily need to avoid conflict topics.
    In my opinion, I’d rather be confronted with such things being possible (rape for example) than not see them brought up at all.
    I do get your point tho, having the protagonist rape someone ought to be a turn off to people looking to relate with him.

    Consider this too: the series focuses on Dream’s emotional growth. He gradually becomes less of a dick as the series progresses.
    Maybe Gaiman wanted to make dream rape someone so that later he could regret it.

    Specifically, the navigation bar would disappear and so will the bottom bar. Leaving you only with tildes, and no “browser”. Try pinning Instagram to the homescreen, for comparison.

    So jealous! So you read through the individual comics, and then decided to buy the absolute edition? I wonder if it has extra bits and pieces sprinkled in on top of the original works...

    Written by Neil Gaiman and illustrated by various brilliant artists, The Sandman series has definitely had an enlightening and positive influence on my life. Much like Dream will say, it feels like the comic speaks true words.
    For me — and I struggle with having had no role model — this comic series provides exactly that, in a way.

    I wonder, whether people here have read it, or bits of it, and what their opinions are.

    I definitely would! Hi haven't a clue where to start but I suppose there are websites I could read up on, I entertained the idea before.

    My little sister. She was taken from us by social security when I was (around) seven and she around four years old, while we were living in Israel. Taken on account of -- as far as I know -- inappropriate domestic conditions. I wont go in to too much detail for the sake of privacy but I think this choice has been more destructive than constructive as far as her well being is concerned. I was taken too, around that time. And transported from place to place, having mostly the worst time of my life but admittedly occasionally also having built some great memories and values.
    I got to see my little sister every once in a while (couple of months?) for an hour, on the minute. My mother was allowed to be there, too. My sister was adopted into an orthodox family and it was blatant that they force their way of life onto her, nothing unexpected here, just a tragedy if you ask me.
    Meanwhile I managed to escape by means of ambulance and a cooperative mother, having since flown into The Netherlands. I've been looking for my sister on and off for seven years and all I can say is that her online absence is very, very unsettling. I've got her birth certificate, among other documents, but none of them proved to contain a lead to anything that exists about her online.
    Our family has no right to any information about my sister, as far as the Israeli courts are concerned.

    P.S. It's sort of nice being able to talk about this to anyone who might listen, oddly so. I don't often find myself in a situation where I can converse about this topic with it being inline with the conversation that is already ongoing.
