Checked out ebook novella from library. It's only available in DRM epub, and I have an old kindle paperwhite. Spent an hour figuring out how to download/install Adobe Digital Editions, then get the epub, then install Calibre and DRM removal plugin, convert to mobi, and then send to kindle.
Finished the novella in under an hour and returned to library 😒
Next hardware/code project is hooking up a Pi to hot tub (that I got for free! - PDX Buy Nothing community is awesome). Has an old Balboa spa control board with an RJ12 jack connecting to control panel. Going to try and split that and hook it up to Pi and then link that to #homebridge. Ordered a 6P6C splitter, cable, breakout and now the waiting begins.
Project 2 complete!
Project #2 is underway today - a mini workbench for roasting coffee

This article was great - in addition to anti-racism I think the same thoughts apply to creating sustainable change in general.
