I am so looking forward to forgetting everything I know when I leave my job in the summer.  14 years of knowledge will evaporate into thin air.   :D

I'd buy one as a gift for my dad.

Maybe you should think of doing an Etsy-style thing? I'd definitely buy one. Assuming a non-astronomical price of course XD

Shipping it may be an issue, unless you just get the handle.

People ship knives and swords: I doubt tools would be an issue.

Sharp objects like knives*, kitchen utensils and gardening tools may only be posted if they are packaged appropriately so that they are no risk to employees, other postal items or recipients. *Excludes knives that are banned under UK laws - see Weapons.
Wrap heavy cardboard around sharp edges and points, strong enough to ensure that the contents do not pierce the outer packaging. Wrap each item with cushioning material. Place in a suitable outer container such as a padded envelope.
The sender's name and return address must be clearly visible on the outer packaging.

The Royal Mail at least doesn't mind.

Though, humorously they don't allow ice.

They clearly don't like cold beverages. :3

Nah, I get why that would be. Ice could get messy.

I'm trying to think of a reason one would ship ice through a post office and failing, since the only time I know of ice shipping being useful is that time some guy mined a bunch of it, put in some insulation and sent it to places like the Caribbean where ice and cold don't really happen, so he could sell them cold drinks, something they hadn't had before.

Presumably for chilling labile chemicals, bacteria, or perishable food during shipment. That last one is probably what they were thinking of.

I usually use ice when I send my ransom victim's body parts to their close ones if they don't want to pay up.

I think its more that if you mail enough packages eventually someone will be silly enough to try.  The US post office has a warning for, among other things, mailing explosives.

You're overthinking things.  Just wrap the bunch in absorbent paper to make sure it doesn't leak.  If your purpose is organlegging you dont want to rely on the rather slow regular mail services anyway, use a private transport company (I understand Seaborne Freight is popular in the UK) and ship it alongside bagged ice

Super Nerdgasm:

I got the btrfs_win driver to work reliably with imdisk ramdisk driver. (both are free and foss. The former is very much work in progress though.)

I now have a compressed windows ramdisk that is actually worth a shit. :D

(It was a pain in the butt to set up, but works reliably. I have temp folder and browser caches pointed there to save my ssd. I allocated a disk big enough to run games out of as well.

silly human.

HDDs havent had LED connectors since the 90s. :P


No, why am I so happy about the above nerdgasm?

Well-- btrfs supports a much better compression algorithm called zstd.  It only gets twice the compression rates that ntfs compression gives, AND it does not fragment the files it produces that way into shitloads of 4kb fragments all over the goddamn drive like ntfs compression does.  So yeah.  (raspberry)
