anonymous donation (160 weeks of $0.25)
anonymous donation (171 weeks of $0.47)
anonymous donation (36 weeks of €3.47)

backers are amazing me -- that's a lot of weeks to have pre-donated. But also stressing me out; I have a *lot* of Euros stuck in my account now.

(Was able to finally withdraw USD, which is like 1/5th as big as the Euros.)

@algernon well, if that's the goal, why not let everyone work from home, and so maximise good communication?

(Probably because it's really about control, an engineer with a door closed cannot be trusted.)

@christianbundy onewire are great, I use DS18B20 which can be found for under $1.

Can be hooked up to GPIO, and you can put a whole bunch of them on a single long cable, very flexible.

Now up to 10 temperature sensors in my house. Maybe getting out of hand. I have one measuring the floor temp.

@codesections so, I happen to receive close to the number of donations the post's example talks about per month. I can't say it's seemed much of a technical problem..

There are only so many suitable payment processors, there's a big risk that switching will lose some percentrage of users, and keeping the neutrality position sets them up to fail again later.

@codesections

I don''t know what kind of problimatic users caused Mangopay to cut off. We can only guess.

I'll bet it wasn't free software developers of well known free software projects though, so if supporting free software development is Liberapay's goal, they made a mistake in choosing to be neutral.

(Perhaps they have a larger goal, that's fine, but that seems a reasonable goal for them to me.)

@codesections what the blog post does not talk about is why the payment processor is cutting them off.

That is the real problem that they didn't realize was a problem: In choosing to be neutral and not judge who to allow on their platform, they exposed everyone who relies on it to the vaugeries of the financial system.

Adding to the fun, their "Mangopay exodus" branch is going to let users empty their wallet by giving it all immediately to the people they support, so I will probably end up with 10-100% *more* money stuck in Liberapay than I do already.

Well, I always wanted to be in a position to give big no-strings dontations to free software developers. I just also wanted to eat, but whatever.

Anyone want to suggest some likely candidates?

@brainblasted hmm, but seems Liberapay doesn't actually hold the money in accounts; Mangopay does. So once they terminate it, I doubt Liberapay will be able to access that money.

I'm thinking I may need to pick free software creators in europe who I expect *can* currently successfully withdraw their money from Liberapay, and BOMB them with big donations of my Liberapay money. Better than it rotting in some payments processor forever.

@brainblasted hoping this will have the silver lining that they find a way to do payments that actually works. Because Mangopay inscrutibly refuses to send me my money still.

@jamey it's important to distinguish between technical criticism and personal denigration. I have lots of respect for people who deal with languages iike perl, after all many of them are maintaining code that i wrote.

@jamey Perl::Critic, but I remember it seemed very opinionated and I never got any value out of it like I have with hlint.

(Also, it missed the most obvious criticism of perl code...)

@bremner yes, types ascii art operators is basically the way to go here I think. But how to prove that a certian combination of them is actually art? More research needed.

of course as a haskell programmer, I'm now wondering how to make the type checker enforce ascii art presence

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.

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.

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.

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.
