Yes, there are many reasons why a comment section might not be available. But with the exception of disabling comments due to harassment, most of them are not good reasons.

Allow me to be somewhat of a contrarian here. One perfectly good and valid reason would be that the author isn’t interested in receiving comments/feedback, and that is totally fine. People are free to express their opinions on their websites online, whether they want others to respond to those opinions or not.

Though to be clear I welcome replies to my posts via webmentions, but I don’t see it as a given that everyone should.

Agreed! I’ve been having a lot of fun designing and printing things!

You’re a lot further ahead than me in the 3D printing department Aaron, since you’ve actually made a proper product. Unfortunately my printer is just 15x15x15 cm (just under 6″) otherwise I’d probably be printing the PK1 Pro stand now.

@MrHenko I miss living in a country with Clas Ohlson ⚙️

Yeah, it’s a nice store to have nearby. :)

@MrHenko Is it done? I’d like to have a 3D printer some day, wonder which one you’ve got, and if you’re satisfied with it.

@odd I got the FlashForge Adventurer 3. That photo was from the very first print I did with it so thus far I don’t know if I can recommend it or not.

Generally speaking I haven’t done much 3D printing but when I started trying it out for the πFi Music Player I also started thinking about whether to get one for myself or not and when I started looking around I found this one on sale. The machine I’d used previously to that is the printer that we have at work and that one is a different FlashForge model so I figured getting a similar but smaller model for myself would be a good decision.

Thanks! I definitely will. Can’t decide if it should be part of my whole studio tour video or if I should do a special video about just this contraption.

As I’ve (hopefully) said before, I’m a big fan of your YouTube work, but based on my own watching habits I tend to shy away from the longer videos (which I guess is mostly recorded live streams) but I watch the shorter ones as soon as I can, so I’d say make multiple shorter ones about the various pieces. That way you could go in-depth without making any one part too long.

I did it, I painted all the rackmount gear white! This is more or less the finished result of my new streaming desk all wired up and functional! I even replaced the fans in the VideoHub so that it’s much much quieter.

Thanks to the VideoHub, I can electronically rewire the desk, routing any video s…

That looks really good, Aaron. Nice work!

Will you do a full video tour of it on YouTube?

@MrHenko I liked that one! And I was pleasantly surprised by the movie adaptation: Arrival

(Sorry for the late reply to this.) I really liked Arrival as well. Really, really liked it. It’s the reason I bought ”Stories of Your Life and Others”. And I gotta say, this is a case where the movie is actually better than the source material, in my opinion. So far I’ve really loved the first story in the collection (the one about the Tower of Babel) and ”Seventy-Two Letters” that I’m currently reading.

Hey, Ted Chiang has a short story up on Medium this week. 📖 He always blows my socks right off.

[Anxiety is the Dizziness of Freedom](https://onezero.medium.com/anxiety-is-the-dizziness-of-freedom-b5ab45cae2a5)

Thanks for pointing us to this one. I’m currently reading Chiang’s ”Stories of Your Life and Others” and really liking it. Will add this one to my reading list and read it as soon as I’ve finished ”Seventy-Two Letters”.

How have I not known before now that (the first 3 books of) The Sandman has been adapted into a ”radio play” for Audible? And with Gaiman himself narrating no less.

I had heard about this but I thought is was for the whole Sandman series so I have purposefully avoided it since I haven’t read the whole series yet. Thanks Colin for letting me know that it’s just the first three books. I’ll need to look into this now.

@MrHenko har funderat på Linode många gånger men eftersom släkten har sin email på mina domäner så blir det för dyrt att ha två tjänster

@jemostrom Det kan jag tänka mig att det blir. För min del så var det ett antal webbsajter och sen bara min egen e-postadress så jag kunde skaffa en enda VPS hos Linode för alla sajterna och sen FastMail för min e-post och fortfarande komma billigare undan än med Binero.
