It's all spirograph all the time around here lately. I finally managed to haul myself up the hill and check out the local laser-cutting place. It's a neat hidden-away spot, below street level, and full of interesting-looking machinery. I have a feeling I'm going to be spending a certain amount of time there in the future.

In the meantime, I'm trying to finish the listings for the last of the basic gear-plates. I keep wishing that all these websites had less clumsy interfaces: Etsy and Ponoko and that lot, they all make you click through every damned step if you just want to fix a typo or change a picture. I suspect I'd be happier if I could get set up to list and sell things directly from my own website. I keep on not doing it though, partly because I'm not entirely sure how complicated it would be to make it work, and partly because I'm too busy and distracted struggling with all these other sites.

But if I can just get this last gear-plate posted, and sort out shipping to Australia (and now also Italy, yikes!), and update the PDF of the pattern guide, and add some links to other useful stuff, then maybe I'll be getting somewhere.

Then after that all I have to do is test these next three plates I've had made, with all the weirdly-shaped parts.


How have I managed to get so busy?

I also wish I didn't keep tripping over the name "Dreamwidth." On bad days, I misread it as "Deathwish." On really bad days, it looks like "Dreamwing," which EWW EWW YUCK RETCH SPIT PTOOOIE. So, um, yeah.
