So some are now promoting the idea that free software licenses can be "revoked".

If this were possible to do, it would destroy free software.

Keep that in mind as you see people promoting this idea.

esr may be promoting it here, but I'm not entirely clear what he's trying to say lkml.org/lkml/2018/9/23/212

@mala @hirnbrot indeed, and git mostly supports them, but eg, the git cat-file --batch interface is line based and has no way to switch to null termination

I think that may be the only part of git that uses a line based protocol and does not support -z. It would be worth fixing if you care about newlines in filenames.

@mala git doesn't fully support newlines in filenames and I have users who file bugs on my software (not git) about this

my review for a microsd card was rejected. The review consisted of a list of reasons I believed the item was a counterfeit.

@cwebber there's that. Also it's not illegal just you need additional equipment. Also, the microinverters in common use for grid-tie need a sine signal to follow. And also there's a urban legand about offgrid power being illegal in Florida..

The bash completion documentation does not seem to give a reason, or even document this. But I've never been able to make any sense of that documentation.

processing my sumac harvest

After drying my sumac harvest and rubbing the berries off the clusters, I ground it by hand with mortar and pestle.

Passed through a sieve to remove the seeds and stems, an amazing spice emerged.

This is the first time I've processed a spice. It reminds me of processing tobacco in the barn as a kid. So tactile, hands become sticky with dry sap, and it smells amazing.

unidentified

Found this gorgeous thing on a bush, in a spot that I'm eyeing as a site for a small pond.

solar update

Been online via satellite for over 24 hours straight and have not used dialup at all for ~5 days. Solar upgrade is really working out; batteries have recovered significantly in the past month and despite summer waning, I have more power every day.

sumac + garlic

Cut a bumper crop of sumac just ahead of the rains. Amazing flavor.

Don't know yet how to process/store it, but I did make this jar of infused sumac garlic olive oil.

Anna's garlic

Split out the biggest cloves of Anna's garlic and planted them today.

The remaining pile-o-garlic should satisfy me for a month.

lemon harvest

This is my biggest lemon harvest ever from my potted meyer lemon tree. I've had it for 10+ years and it's always a joy. Next two lemon harvests in prep already..

Borg seems like the closest backup program like obnam. The main difference is it uses per-client AES keys, rather than gpg keys. So a backup can't be easily made accessible by other gpg keys.

I suppose that encrypting its AES key to the gpg keys you want to be able to access the backups, and storing the encrypted AES key alongside the backup will get the same functionality.

Cascadilla

I walked over this bridge probably a hundred times, but never went down to see the waterfall. Let alone hiked down the gorge to Ithaca before.

Probably sums up my Cornell experience in some way.

Back at Cornell for the first time in 21 years. My feet still remember the way around.

putting up pears

Around a quarter of my pear harvest canned now.

The small jars are ginger-pear chutney. Need to find the time to make more of that, it's stunning.
