well lit rabbit holes

April 9, 2017


Noon I ducked down to our local “Maker Space,” which has open hours ’til 1:00.   I’ve been going there for years whenever something’s weird with whatever version of my dynamo hub light I’m trying to get rolling.

Still stalled on the Modumath course — if we have to rewrite the path to  all. those. images…. well… tho’ it would be so much better to organize them into proper folders and have the path make sense.
