Dear :mastoart:
Is anyone interested in buying a handmade photographic print on baryta paper?
Here are some samples of my work in the darkroom.

I'm trying to track down a 19th century French polymath -- engineer, economist, possibly public administrator. Did work on infrastructure, particularly sewers and/or water supply, bridges, and railroads.

I _think_ he also made an observation of the economic logic of multi-class passenger railroad service and amenities of accommodations (intentionally poor lowest-class service).

Likely active ~1840 - 1860.

My Web-fu is gives nil.

why would anyone subject themselves to this software

Somehow I managed to make it to age 37 without learning how to crimp ethernet cable. I always thought it would be fiddly and failure-prone; in fact it's very straightforward.

One more thing to add to my list of nearly-obsolete skills :)

What It’s Like Living in One of the Hottest Cities on Earth—Where It May Soon Be Uninhabitable

« The week before I arrived in Jacobabad, the city had reached a scorching 51.1°C (124°F). Similar temperatures in Sahiwal, in a neighboring province, combined with a power outage, had killed eight babies in a hospital ICU when the air-conditioning cut out. Summer in Sindh province is no joke. People die. »

(Two or more part, I guess, so folk can answer with the end of DS9 if they'd like.)
