would another blogger handcraft an animated gif demonstration of the Visvalingam algorithm for their followers? why would anyone settle for less?

Bézier Fantasia by Wægen
An appreciation of the graceful Bézier curve. (I was bored, so I played with Bézier regression. I think the results are more aesthetically pleasing when used inappropriately.)

Graham Crackers - The Process
Upper-Left: Rolling Out the Dough
I use a pasta maker to roll cracker dough to a consistent thickness, which allow more-even cooking. Behind the pasta maker is a white-handled docker (for poking holes) and a roller “pizza” cutter (some day I will buy or make a perforating wheel). Also pictured are crackers, ready for the oven, on cooking parchment.
Upper-Right: Baked Crackers
A baking stone also aids even baking. In the lower part of the photo is a wooden paddle for moving crackers to and from the oven. (The stone and the paddle are sold for pizza making.)
Middle-Left: Crackers Cooling
Middle-Right: Crackers Burst and Moved to Storage
I don’t waste the slightly burnt and slightly misshapen bits, but segregate the storage to impress guests with ‘pretty’ crackers.
Bottom: Totally-Unnecessary Extreme Close-Up
Because I can.

In 8th grade, I was required to take a woodshop class. I made a booster seat for my niece. There were parts to hook over the back of the chair, to keep the seat from sliding off the chair, but they broke off and now the back sticks out to keep the booster seat from sliding off to the sides.
