100% flour, 70-75% water. 1/4 tsp dry yeast and 1 tsp salt per 10 oz flour.
Mix dry, add water. Mix just until it comes together as one messy lump, cover and let rise for 12-18 hours. Bake as you like; it works for a loaf or a boule. I recommend baking in a Dutch oven; it helps the crust.
Water, yeast, and salt amounts are all flexible.
Well, an #introduction since they seem to be going around.
I'm Qwerty, and yes there are people who call me that in meatspace. I like to say I collect (creative) hobbies but honestly I haven't been able to stick to one yet for long enough to be competent. I work in software and run on music; I #cook and #bake and read and occasionally fumble in the direction of #drawing or #gamedev, and I drink almost exclusively tea.

Less than NZD $4k to go, but not much time left, either.
Lately I've been reading a web serial called Katalepsis. It is cosmic horror and terror both (but also usually very wholesome), it's transhumanism and dysphoria and an uncertain quantity of varyingly hopeless or hopeful lesbians. Self-aware in that perfect way where the characters have read books, but without fourth-wall-breaking. Clear character voices and properly messy action scenes and evocative descriptions without resorting to un-adjectives like "eldritch".
Got a friend and her SO in need of living-space, currently due to be on the streets in February. Two disabled trans folks in Boston. Any leads you've got, really. Please boost.
She streams and has a patreon, if you can contribute, and can be hired for voice-acting and video-editing, if you have need of that.
I have now done a game stream! I do not like my voice.

With the bobbin removed and the needle not threaded, everything runs smoothly. The machine is not being unusually noisy, so I don't think it needs oiling. The bobbin is perhaps running a little low on thread by radius, but I'd eyeball it as still having at least a few feet (if not yards) in there.
Specifically: After a variable number of stitches, it stops (motor seems to be straining). This occurs on both hand and electric power. If I hand-turn it backward from there it doesn't stick, but if I electric backward it stays stuck. Looking at the bobbin at time of sticking, there's a few threads back and forth over the top of the spool.
#fiberarts people! I do more "fixing my clothes" than "art", but regardless, my sewing machine is not working and any help would be appreciated. Details in thread.

Hello, need money for trans related clothing (~$100?), food I don't have to cook myself b/c it's exhausting dealing with that (~$100), for fabric b/c my kid wants me to sew them a cape (~$80) for Halloween, and bloodwork laboratory fees that my insurance doesn't cover nearly enough of (nearly $400 owed plus 3 more sets of labs need getting done)

"Listen," she said dryly, "I know how this is supposed to go. The knight gets past the dragon, rescues the princess and they're supposed to–"
"–get married and everything, yeah," the knight finished. "It feels clichéed to me too."
"The truth is, I'm sure you're lovely, but," the princess considered her words, "I'm only into women. Sorry kid."
The knight was silent for a while. "I should be truthful too. I'm not a man. You're the first person I've told."
