The Fediverse is great thanks to things like the #canHelpWith hashtag. Here goes mine!
I can help with:
- Baking: bread and cakes including sourdough
- Academic writing: LaTeX and bibliography management
- College level mechanical engineering (I teach at uni!): vibration, noise, structures, material properties and the like. Also numerical methods, specially finite elements.
- Spanish: I'm a native 😊
Feel free to ask about anything and I'll try to help.
Now that I'm reading so many #introductions I realised that I never introduced myself here!
I'm a researcher in applied mechanics, blogger and home baker. I'm obsessed with sourdough bread and free software and paint and knit whenever I can.
My objective for 2018 is learning to play the mandolin :D
"El problema de la izquierda es la diferencia entre las soflamas retóricas, la práctica organizativa en esta era digital y la negativa a asumir dosis más altas de conflicto en la lucha por los recursos económicos del siglo XXI."

But, the craziest fact is that Roman metro has a stop called Piramide, because there is literally a pyramid there, because why not?
More surprising facts about Italy:
- Traffic lights have amber light also for pedestrians
- In general, first you pay for the coffee and ask for it after with the ticket
- You need to keep the ticket because there is a special police that can ask for it
- The police with dogs are called "unità cinofila"
- There are couples of soldiers with a camion and a tent randomly around big cities
- If you're in Rome and there are lots of people waiting, maybe the Pope is around

I came back from my trip! As promised, I ate a lot: tagliatelle al ragù in Bologna, amatriciana, gricia, pannacotta, pizza bianca... in Rome.
As an example, here you have the tiramisù we had at Pompi, a famous Roman place.
It's great to have a local guide that's also obsessed with food!
This album satisfies both my inner punk and my Galician origins:
Includes a great folk version of Cock Sparrer's "We are coming back"!
It's time again for Endless Jingling, the random carol generator I made a few years back and for which I am unquestionably going to hell.
The Chiefs at work had the idea of organising a lottery in which people bring a Christmas product, choose a number and before holidays a random number is selected and the winner takes all products.
The funny thing is that there are a hundred numbers so I'm tempted to convince *everyone* to take part so the lucky winner can take home... one hundred products!
Maybe makes people realise that sharing them was a better idea 😊
El blog ya no tiene publicidad :D

As I was finding contradictory recipes for Spanish quince cheese (dulce de membrillo), I ended following the recipe for cotognata from my copy of "Il cucchiaio d'argento", that one of my Italian friends gave to me as present my last birthday.
It turned out to be delicious! I love the book 😍
