      I love planted aquariums and lifting weights but because of the corona and personal problems I haven't done any of that in this year.

      Lately, I am fixing old camera lenses and reselling them on eBay I almost don't make any money but it is a lot of fun.

      And you guys? What are you doing besides eating, working and sleeping?

      I’ve been wanting to get in to hobby electronics now that I have some free time, but I’m not sure what I want to start with. I am super interested in building an 8-bit computer but I’m curious what other types of things people have built or are building. Feel free to talk about any Raspberry Pi or Arduino projects as well even if they’re not strictly ‘hobby electronics’.

    3. Getting my new skate boots!

      I'm so excited. I'm getting measured very soon for custom-fit Harlick figure skating boots.

      Takes 8-10 weeks for them to be ready, so I'll have them before my local rink reopens! I've been going to an ice rink much further so I don't get rusty in the mean time… it's fun, but exhausting (and expensive) to travel an hour and back every time for just 3.5hrs of training.

      Booking for measurements wasn't exactly simple either. I have to travel to France, take two trains and three taxis to get to some city I've never even heard of. And that's the closest shop to me.

      Seriously I'm hyped. I feel like a kid waiting for Christmas day right now, and this week I'm traveling to give my wishlist to Santa in person.

    4. Looking for resources to create a Wilderness Survival/Camping 101 syllabus

      Hi everyone,

      Recently I became interested in learning about wilderness survival for the first time since I was a Cub Scout. I like to camp, but I'm the type of person who pours a can of fire starter on the camp fire after setting it up tipi style and then goes around bragging about how good I am at fire-starting. (I would be completely lost without a lighter and starter fluid.) I am planning on taking a camping trip with a friend of mine who has a great deal of wilderness survival training after COVID-19 restrictions are loosened, and I would like to come prepared.

      I have found outlines for several course syllabi on wilderness survival, but not resources for each of them. Here are two examples below:

      Example 1

      Lesson I: Introduction

      Lesson II: The Psychology of Survival

      Lesson III: Introduction to wilderness survival planning

      Lesson IV: Fire

      Lesson V: Clothing

      Lesson VI: Shelters

      Lesson VII: Sustenance (Food and Water)

      Lesson VIII: Introduction to Signaling

      Lesson IX: Introduction to map and compass

      Lesson X: Survival Kits

      Example 2

      Lesson 1: Introduction to Wilderness Safety and Survival

      Lesson 2: Survival Essentials for the Wilderness

      Lesson 3: Selecting the Right Gear

      Lesson 4: Health and Safety

      Lesson 5: Treating Illness, Bites, and Stings in the Wilderness

      Lesson 6: Traumatic Injuries and Environmental Illnesses

      Lesson 7: Environmental Illnesses and Their Treatments

      Lesson 8: Understanding the Importance of Your Clothing

      Lesson 9: Procuring and Purifying Water

      Lesson 10: Food and Nourishment: Plants, Fruits, and Bugs

      Lesson 11: Food and Nourishment: Crustaceans, Birds, and Fish

      Lesson 12: Food and Nourishment: Tracking and Acquiring Mammals

      Lesson 13: Food and Nourishment: Preparing and Cooking Game

      Lesson 14: Navigation

      Lesson 15: Signaling

      I was hoping that perhaps some Tilderinos could help me out in filling in the blanks with resources for wilderness survival topics, or even some anecdotes about learning wilderness survival yourselves.

      Thanks for any help!

    5. Frustrated with my Nikon D3500 and looking for advice on upgrading

      Got it last summer and been having and absolute blast with it, got a macro tube and a bigger 55-300 lens to play with. But time and time again I keep running into annoying little limitations.

      This model doesn't have a shutter release input thing, so remote shutter is locked behind a falling apart android app>bluetooth connection. There's a tonne of small little things like this that I wish I looked into before making the purchase

      Essentially - right now I'm thinking that I want to upgrade the actual dslr before investing any more into lenses, but I'm a bit too out of touch to know what the good models to go for 2nd hand or whatever.

      Are there any tildoes out there that have some experience with older but capable bodies?

    6. Help a Tilderino find a good synth?

      Hi folks! I've been doing computer programming as study subject, job, side hustle, and hobby for way too long now, and both fortunately and unfortunately, I've been bitten by the synthesis bug.

      I never was very good at playing music as a kid, but I'm slowly learning to play piano again, and I really like analog electronics, so masking my inability to actually play a tune by doing wacky stuff with a reverb and Plaits is a natural fit. That said, I'm not at all experienced and have little money, so beyond just screwing around in VCVRack, I'm a little lost.

      Currently, I'm looking at the Behringer Neutron (mmm yummy patchbay) alongside the Arturia KeyStep - am I going down a bad path for someone who wants to get into this as a hobby and maybe expand to modular in the next few years?

      I've been trying to create youtube videos on a new channel (empty for now).

      format

      The video format I thought of was getting a few friends on a joint call, and just talking about a certain topic for that day in a socratic circle discussion.

      topics discussed

      Since i'm interested in Linux, one of my first topics will be about the argument of linux on the desktop. Would it benefit from more users? Is linux evangelism for good? can we get rid of the elitism stigma?

      Is there anything I can do to refine this kind of video format, and actually gain an audience that can see and appreciate the content. My goal here isn't to make money, but to supply the site with good content.
