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.
Well. I've finished Act 5 Act 1. I continue to have difficulty keeping track of who's who among the trolls.
Split a chicken with a housemate – he got the meat, I got skin and bones and giblets.
Made stock, schmaltz, and gribenes. Overall decision: Stock is probably worthwhile. Schmaltz and gribenes... not so much. I got about a tablespoon of schmaltz, and neither he nor I eat chicken enough to even bother saving skin and fat in the freezer to do a bigger batch.
Maybe I could have gotten a bit more fat off the chicken before I passed him the meat? Probably not very much.
#HomestuckReread2020 Well, just got around to reading Act 4. I guess this is where it got weird? I remember having trouble keeping track of the trolls the first time around.
For real like Bandcamp is exactly the kind of service we *hoped* the internet would give us: “hey, people make things, they set their own price inc. free, we provide the storefront, you buy it and the money goes to the creator, you get it in a DRM-free format and can play it however you want, we just make money to keep going & improving and aren’t a VC-funded nightmare company of rampant reckless growth that will do something nightmarish and implode.”
We need more media platforms like that.

um. I'm not getting any audio from anything since... the Act 2 fight scenes. Is there supposed to be? There's certainly the mute button. The older things still have audio when I go back to them.
Act 2 seems a lot longer than Act 1? Act 1 only took a few hours to read through.
trying to follow along with @DialMforMara 's #HomestuckReread2020 . I tried reading it twice while it was still in progress. Can't remember how far I got the first time. Second time, I remember that there was a page with a large green circle (a sun? but that might be mixing it up with something else) on it near where I stopped, but I'd lost track of the plot long before then.
internal ethics conflict, asking advice
I've got a good job (software "engineer") but an ethical problem (user privacy only to the legal minimum). On the other hand, the pay is good and I'm making an effort to put a big chunk of it towards other people.
Doubt there's many tech companies that do better on privacy. Family has suggested going back to school for something that would point towards a career elsewhere. Can't decide whether the good I'm doing with the money is worth staying, or not.
