The Fediverse is great thanks to things like the 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 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

Quadratic finite elements entered my life

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

Ondiz's Italian adventure started!

I'm currently completely blind because of the sun in Milan and can't see the city.

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.

El proyecto Inspira ha ganado un premio! Espero que nos ayude para el año que viene.

My sociability window finally closed.

In technical terms, I went from being Gongolo to Mammolo with a pinch of Brontolo, that's my inner self.

Still, I'm available for deep conversations, but small talk feels too tiring. It's fun how mind works!

Current status: testing my own exams.

Indulge your creativity by drawing, painting, sculpting, etc, even if you don’t think you’re good at it.

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 😊

My homework for Wednesday is to write about a trip to Italy and I'm actually going to Italy on Thursday.

Coincidences!
