I'm a big believer in open source, and I do most of my work out in the open. Most of that happens on GitHub, but I also post some of the stuff I do here. Especially when doing something that's not software, I like to make an entry here.

  1. Notebook #4 is almost finished! Use some different techniques that time, that I'm very happy with. And as usual, I have a million ideas for the next one.

  2. Got a stack of paper in the mail today. It's a bit heavier than what I've used so far (120 g/m², as opposed to the usual 80 g/m²). But more importantly, it's the right size (A5). This saves work and eliminates one source of inaccuracy.

    Looking forward to trying it, but first I need to finish notebook #4.

  3. Got some unexpected workshop time yesterday and started working on notebook #4. Tried some new techniques for preparing the signatures, and got these done faster than with any previous notebook build. Very satisfying, to see this kind of progress!

  4. Finished notebook #3 last weekend. This one's got a bookmark! Hoping to start working on #4 this week.

  5. I talked about the Screw Pad before, which was a product I intended to sell. I no longer plan to do that, so to wrap up the project, I decided to make it open source.

    Check out the repository, if you're interested.
