But maybe I'm one of those checked-out millenials that refuses to "upgrade" to non-toolfree removeable & upgradeable batteries and non-fully replaceable RAM and SSD and who would use an Iridium 9575 PTT as daily driver if that wasn't paywalled at like €1,5k + € 50 p.m. just to do so.
But in the end it's a different scope.
OS/1337 aims to be the #Software-esque equivalent of "you want to build a gadget? Just shove a @Raspberry_Pi #Pi0W / #Pi0W2 in it!" and thus be the slate for other projects of mine and also a nice and versatile #rescue system that could be configured [ahead of time!] to [Reverse-]#SSH from a system, providing a cornerstone to build something like a #vendor-independent #LOM / #BMC to #upcycle older systems into #headless #servers!
Kinda like @landley said re: #Android #development the same should be possible for #Linux in general, allowing someone in Agbobloshie to cobble together something that works for them and at least allow someone to browse the web via #Lynx and http://frogfind.com ...
OS/1337 should allow people to #upcycle devices to something useful.
Not just to be a "1st class #Android developer" as @landley explained over 10 years ago [ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SGmtP5Lg_t0#t=4m22s ] but also be a minimalist #Linux to do generic #CLI tools for and use as a daily-driver - capable with a #CLI.
To run on machines way too slow and low-end to be able to run #GUI's...
So I took half an hour before work this morning to make a dry box with stuff I had lying around. I'll also put some dessicants in there once I bake this filament a bit.

I always keep the envelopes Animal Art Crimes sends their stickers in. They make excellent recycling material for personalizing accessories. For this project, I bought a phone case that has a clear back and just sandwiched the scraps between the phone and the clear case.

I was tryna make a drawstring sack for someone but I screwed up *somehow*. So I made this lil' bag. Kinda cool *i guess* took me like 20mins.
Made from an old duvet cover. I have 3 old ones still so I can make a bunch of stuff. Hopefully I can make something to sell on my ebay, (tried to get an Etsy but it messed up somehow.)

This is a magnetic noticeboard I made a few months ago. Made from an #upcycled computer side panel and some picture wire. It was super easy to do.
It is the only thing left of my first PC so making it into something was kinda neat.
So easy and it's super useful, why don't more people do this with old PCs?
Made a short skirt from some left over material from the last skirt i did. Unlike the last one I did this doesn't have any tassels to tie it, it has belt loops instead. Made from quilt cover fabric.
Too cold to wear out anywhere :(
The pictures are of me in leggings and a skirt that comes about two inches above me knee. The skirt is space themed and is covered with stars planets and a yellow spaceship.
Today's crafty submission for the #30DayMapChallenge. I upcycle jars with historical topographic maps from various sources. This is from a USGS 1:62,500-scale Quadrangle for Charleston, WV 1936.
"It's wasteful to throw away something that's still usable, it's better to share it with others who need it."
This is really neat, if we can get it to wide usage. No plastics would be best, but a circular economy for plastics far beats what we're doing now for both production and disposal.
#Upcycle your old costume, get a “new-to-you” one, or just donate one you have on hand!

I'm getting some bad flicker and convergence issues on startup, which gradually improve (but don't go away). Based on the "gradual improvement" element I'm thinking a bad capacitor somewhere, but I'm open to suggestions or troubleshooting ideas!
These ultra thin CRT displays are so cool though! Still incredibly heavy but only about 17" deep.
@thecornersjt: Thanks to @tngcommunityTO, @RepairCafeTO
, the volunteers and the community members for making the #repaircafetoronto event a success.
@druid Germany knows only one flavour of Hula Hoops, but they have them. Same flavour as their crisps. The Brits are way more creative when it comes to sweets and snacks 😋
And beware of #greenwashing - sometimes your nicely sorted waste (plastics, biodegradable, paper, the rest) is just used to regulate the temperature in a power plant...
Since I’m not a 20-30-something white Insta lady who refinishes crapped-up FB marketplace furniture and upcycles it with popsicle sticks and whatever is the new milk paint, I’ll share a just-finished, fresh-face of a grotty rocking chair we found covered in cobwebs and mildew in the garage. #rockon #puravida #repurpose #upcycle
Got the replacement board in for the Dell Inspiron 11. Fits perfectly, except it's just a *hair* too short. I'll have to attach the WiFi adapter with some tape, since there isn't a spot for a hold down screw. I've done kludgier things in the past, I'm sure it will hold up fine!
Also, the board came without RAM, so I habe an 8GB stick on order. Added $18 to the project cost, but I'm mostly frustrated I'll have to wait.
to compensate for hours of book-study i had to make something: a little fancy notebook from an old bag from the thriftstore #upcycle
While I wait for a replacement motherboard, I decided to do something about the laptop housing. It's not a *bad* color, but this machine has accumulated a lot of scratches and other damage.
I was originally going to prep the housing and do a gloss coat, but my girlfriend had some leftover bedliner from another project. I've seen this stuff survive all manner of impacts, and last after the metal of the truck bed rusted away.
Inspiron Tough Book, anyone?
My old Dell Inspiron 11 failed today - the dreaded 7 beeps indicating a motherboard/CPU failure. I'm going a step beyond just repairing this one by replacing the stock 3162 mobo with the newer 3180 mobo. This gives me:
A9-9420e (replacing N3050, newer/faster CPU)
8GB of DDR4 RAM (up from 2GB DDR3)
128GB of storage (up from 32GB)
This may be a usable travel laptop now! I'll throw a lightweight #linux distro on there too. Can't do anything about the blue though...
Before the current epidemic of disposable vape pens, Poundland used to sell these disposable phone chargers which had a 650mAh #lithiumPolymer battery connected to a DC-DC boost converter. There was no straightforward way for owners to recharge them.
I've been distracted by e-cig battery harvesting, but finally got around to adding a TC4056A module with over-discharge protection to the few I bought back then
They are now just like USB #rechargeable powerbanks
I found a kids dress at the thrift store for $1.25. I cut the white satin ribbons from it & removed the clip-on roses. I used them to decorate a wedding present — here I’ve dipped the rose in glue & sprinkled it with clear glitter. The best thing is that the things I removed don’t take away from the design of the dress, so I put the dress back in the donation box immediately after I left the store.
Want to help people directly in your area? Have too much stuff in your closets, attic, garage? Register for a freecycle account and give that stuff AWAY. There are ppl on here asking for everything. It won't cost you a dime:
Doing a little light repair work between meetings, since I had to wake up for a 6am meeting earlier today (ugh).
I got this pile of broken media players from a family friend. One LCD replaced and working so far, and I have LCDs to fix the rest (assuming that's the only issue). They're neat! MP3 player, FM radio, eBook reader (on that tiny screen, what?), photo gallery, recorder, bluetooth, 3.5mm out, and a microSD slot.
Anyone want one, if I can fix more of them?
@silkenpaw @taffyhound you can find old sweaters at thrift stores. My friends give them to me because I ask them because I upcycle old cashmere into new hoodies. Be sure your wool is not “superwash” or it won’t felt. Hot water will help wool felt faster, but it’s the water and agitation that is the key to felting.
Weird Marketplace Find of the Day. Pallet beds. I am actually quite amazed by the variations on these.

My plain dark blue jumper embroidered revamp is finished ready for the Christmas season. Based on traditional Breton costume designs and colours, highly decorative collars of detailed embroidery are a classic feature of their style. Worked with fine tapestry wool in chain stitch. #embroidery #revamp #upcycle #christmas #jumper #Breton #brittany #design #costume #needlework
