Pizza Oven Rev 3

Back in our Chancery Lane days we made a very successful pizza oven. It became a regular feature of our monthly Open Socials. In late 2015 we moved to our fantastic new space in Blackpitts. One thing we don’t have in Blackpitts is our own dedicated outside yard. We can do things outside, but it is a shared car park so we can’t leave things out there. This means that we’ve had to build our oven every time and take it down again, for special occasions like our annual birthday party or summer post-Dublin Maker BBQ.

So its been on the to-do list for some time, to make a portable version that we can wheel in and out as required. We started the process yesterday to build a molded dome from lightweight concrete. There are lots of plans on line for this using a gym ball as a former. We’ll be working on it over the next few weeks. Drop in and have a look.

Zen Woodworking Club’s Inaugural Meeting 02/13/2016

Welcome all woodworkers and would-be woodworkers to PS:One’s woodworking club, currently meeting Mondays at 6:00 p.m. and hosted by Wood Shop Authorizer, Andy L.

Thanks to all who attended the first meeting of the Zen Woodworking Club!
Many diverse woodworking interests represented, from furniture design, to carving, to antique tool restoration to tool making. We did a little tool sharpening and cut some dovetails and only lost 2 pints of blood (total)…

Here’s a guy I once met, who’s method I loosely copy for introducing dovetails.  You can also see a lot of stuff for our equipment wish list in his shop!  ~ Andy L.

Next week 2/20/16: Tool tune up and steam bending demo!
Sharpening of chisels, planes, wits. Letter carving in wood AND Joe’s steam bending box debut

TOG February Open Social

This month’s Open Social evening takes place on Saturday 18th February at 7PM.

If you’ve never been to our Social, you’ll find it a great alternative Saturday evening in town. Come in and look around. If you’ve never been in before, we’ll give you the grand tour of the space. Talk to members and visitors about projects or things you’d like to do. Ask about our our new brew room and photography darkroom that we’re getting ready to build. If you like what you see, ask about joining as a full member.

Hopefully there’ll be, caint, ceol agus craic as usual. The space stays open until the last member is left……usually the small hours of Sunday morning. The evening is free to attend for members and visitors alike. No need to book…. just turn up. You can drop in for 10 minutes, or stay the whole night. We have parking available. Bring beer, food, gadgets! Our doors are open from 7PM. Hope to see you there.

#SaferInternetDay Tips

On Safer Internet Day, TOG members share some tips on how to stay safe online. Please share this with anyone you think will find it useful.

Keeping Safe on the Internet

How to Encrypt your Texts and Emails

First, don’t send text messages, use Signal instead. Signal is an open source project that lets you send encrypted messages to other Signal users. It replaces your SMS app so you can use it for encrypted and regular messages.

You can encrypt your emails using a technique called PGP. The following video explains how this works, but you don’t need to know this to use it.

Extensions like Mailvelope for Firefox and Chrome help manage your PGP keys. You can get a Thunderbird extension and other extensions listed here.

It is important to note that the text of that message is encrypted.  Any attachments and the fact that you send the message are not encrypted.

How to Browse the Internet Securely

HTTPS encrypts the connection between your browser and the site you want to connect to. You should always check if HTTPS is in place before entering personal information like addresses or credit card numbers.

You can install the HTTPS Everywhere extension, which will automatically make your connection secure if the site you are connecting to uses https.

Use a different password for every site you use. This can be difficult, but if one password is compromised, all the others remain secure.

uBlock Origin or other ad blockers can help speed up your browsing, but it can also help hide your identity.

The Onion Router, TOR Project, is a fully encrypted browser.  It uses 3 layers of encryption to hide your traffic.  This can be overkill for some users and there are ways to break the encryption, but it is a useful project.

Two-Factor

Most email providers and social networks support two-factor login. This means to log in you need your password and a code sent to your phone.  It is always helpful to check your security settings.

Share your ideas?

Got a tool you think is useful?  How do you stay safe on the Internet?  Leave any ideas or questions in the comments and check out upcoming TOG Events.
