"The Prego Roll is a Portuguese Garlic Steak Sandwich, found on cart vendors on the streets of Portugal. Mozambique was a Portuguese colony (1505-1975) and naturally their food crossed the border into South Africa. As a child the Prego Roll was the biggest treat you could get. 🌍

You just might find yourself saying: "damn, that's a good sandwich"."

Worry Beads | Tricycle
"We are not called upon as Buddhists to deny the world, and certainly not to escape from it. We are called to live with it, and to make our peace with all that is. In Buddhist terms, that peace is called Tathagata. The Thus Come One is enlightened as he is, not as he would wish himself to be. There is no escaping this. The world of worries we wish to escape from in the beginning of Buddhist practice is found to be enlightenment itself in the end. We don't understand this, of course, and so we keep striving for a distant, idealized kind of Buddhahood, only to reach its threshold and be turned back the way we came. In this way, we receive the teaching of the Buddha with every mala we say."

notes on "the berg cloud little printer alternative"
"But then I remembered I already own a thermal printer. A cheap one that prints labels. So I researched a little more and figured out how one could have their own thermal printer to hack away on:

1. Buy a Dymo LabelWriter.
2. Buy this continuous thermal paper.
3. Use the Dymo JavaScript SDK.

Not as cute as the Little Printer, but appears to do the printing part of the equation. Mine prints pretty detailed stamps, so I think it should handle graphics like the ones that were in the demo. I haven’t gotten my hands on the continuous thermal paper yet, so I can’t say if the SDK will give as much control over printing, but it seems like a fun project if you’re looking for one."

"the robot has two eyes which can only read black or white, if both eyes see black it'll go straight, if only one eye sees black it'll spin till the other eye sees black too."

YouTube - MøBot: DeLeon II [drawbot]
"Newest evolution in the DrawBot series. This video demonstrates the new stylus arm design as well as sets DeLeon on task to begin drawing. I'm inclined to return to the wheel-based system for mobility as it is much more accurate. I really like the the relationship to crop-circles. I think this is starting to go somewhere."
