Y'know, yeah. If you're in Chicagoland and need someone along with you somewhere, let me know and I'll try to make myself available.
(I travel sometimes, so I can't promise that I'll always be available, but I can try. A couple+ days of lead time is ideal, but reach out if you need something regardless. You're not alone.)
Hat tip to @djsundog who's doing similarly in his neck of the woods. Mostly I expect this'd be handy for doctor/government stuff, but I'm also up for other things.
@onethousandtwentyfour Speaking of new (to me) music, thanks for pointing out Limbo's Holo (even if indirectly) a while ago. s'good.
@djsundog There's a new Waldeck album, which you might enjoy.

On the plus side, [some] sock machines are *even cheaper* than I thought. On the minus side, they don't actually sew the toes closed, and apparently you have to "set" the socks somehow, so those will add expense. (*Of course* there are machines for those, but they're also maybe simple enough to do on one's own at first?)
"I want a cold drink with some flavor in it. I know, a cold tea."
"Hm, this doesn't seem to be dispersing. Wonder why not."
"Ah! Brownian motion is lower at lower temperatures. I just need... a vibrator?"
(Amusingly enough, that did help me find what I was looking for. Someone had confused the office drink frother as a vibrator at some point, so I was able to find it. Seems to have worked.)
Huh, new feature on the Internet Archive: go to any audio item and click the Llama in the upper-right(ish) corner. Depending on your history with computers, you may be able to guess what it does.

Things I learned today: just because your printer can print from a roll, don't assume it can print the whole roll in one go (even assuming ink holds out). Turns out mine's limited at 200", for some reason. Also, tension is important and very finicky when rolling craft paper onto a separate roll.
This does make printing 120' of walkways a little more difficult. (Made it work, will just have to overlap things a bit.)
