well this is a #startrek meme that absolutely has to be on mastodon
cw'd for eye contact
When I say that company doesn't know how packing material works, I mean it. Often times they don't bother with it, but I've also gotten shipments where the shipping box was filled with the breakable mugs lining the edge of the box with some paper to keep those from sliding around protected safely in the center where it does absolutely nothing to protect from impacts during shipping. At least they're good about crediting for breakage so I'm not paying for broken stuff.

For those who sensibly want explicit actions to move a video in toots somewhere instead of auto-crud on scroll, that already exists. Click the toot. It opens in the last column. You can play/stop the video there and you can carry on down your timeline without worry about getting back to the video or having that auto-anything'd.

Fixing machines is sometimes like a point and click adventure. The sensible and straightforward approach to the problem isn't immediately available so it's either MacGyver something that works well enough until a proper fix is possible or shut down and lose a ton of sales. I'm surprised at how well the temporary fix held up, but the machine is much nicer to use with a proper repair. While the temporary fix was in I also forbade anybody else using the machine, but now I can lift that restriction.
Last week Thursday part of the roaster failed (the plumber who put the part in a few months ago screwed something up, the original part lasted nearly 2 decades). Today the replacement part arrived and I successfully put that in myself (needed to buy a tool, the person at the hardware store was very helpful). For the days in between, I used a combination of items that were never intended to be used together to glue the broken part together well enough to work until the replacement part arrived.
I thought I was done roasting coffee for the day, but then an order for another 25 pounds came in so #itsroastingtime
