Jonathan Coulton's video for "All This TIme," from his forthcoming album Solid State, will please anyone who ever played an Infocom text adventure.

Do I know anyone in London who would appreciate a M:TG Deckbuilder box? I have one going spare.

Very happy with how this turned out. Heat set inserts in PLA work really well!

My first attempt at using press in threaded inserts in a 3d printed part.

I'm really very pleased with the result: it was easy to insert with a soldering iron, and the result is solid as a rock: I couldn't budge the screw with pliers, even pulling quite hard.

Aesthetically, it looks great, too. Highly recommended.

"Constant Use"

Inbox keeps 'bundling' emails to a particular mail alias of mine into the 'Forums' group. It seems I can tell Inbox to "always do this" when I manually tag something from a bundle, but there's no way I can see to do the reverse - tell it to never bundle a particular set of messages.

Can anyone advise otherwise?

PSA: If you're paranoid like me and are using OTP 2 factor authentication on your Google account, go in and disable backup authentication via SMS. Your mobile provider is much easier to social engineer and harder to secure than nearly anything else.
