Slow braised pork, and corn tortillas heated on the woodstove.. Good fuel for a snowy day.

culture of design-focused self-promotion

"culture of design-focused self-promotion" explains why javascript etc libraries have such unbearably shiny websites. "design as a signal of how up to date or nice a library is"

Also probably applies to a lot of other stuff. Probably obviously to many, but not to me.

Oh and if you'd clicked a little earlier, you'd have gotten to see the bit about the trash pickers next to the uranium mine..

Including:

* In the "customize" view, drag and drop of icons to and from the toolbar doesn't work.
* Which makes it kind of hard to remove the much-maligned Pocket integration. (But at least means I can't enable the also-much-maligned "Hello" integration.)
* If I try to drag and drop tabs in the new tabs page, they don't move, but it does prevent using the page anymore.
* For some reason tabs in new tabs have not 1, but 2 "pin" icons. But the one at the bottom does nothing when clicked on.
* The "pin" icon at the top does something when clicked on, it turns from light grey to light blue. These colors are nearly indistinguisable in such a small space. Bad UI design.
* The "new tab controls" popup has check boxes that do nothing when you click to uncheck them. Because they should actually be radio buttons. More bad UI design.
* It changed the font used on web pages to something else, despite my having carefully selected some font or other.
* Any font selections I make now seem to be ignored, even though I've told it not to use web fonts and even if I reload pages.
* They broke dragging tabs to reorder/move to another window. Wow.

Wow, firefox 43.0.4 (actually iceweasel) is super buggy. Like, I could report 6 bugs after using it for half an hour.

(Instead, probably switching to something else, because they've clearly totally lost the plot.)

pseudo-sauna
Plan for this evening: Rig up some kind of pseudo-sauna and then go for a swim in the foot of snow.

Flamed on github for auto-closing pull requests (I have a bug tracker located elsewhere). So.. deleted etckeeper repository from github.

Keep it up guys, and I'll delete all my github repositories. You think I care about what you're locked in to?

Snowed in and taking a "me" day. Maybe a sunny hike later. So nice.

LWN Interview
For some reason, Lars Wirzenius spent 4 months interviewing me. And for some reason, Linux Weekly News has published a large part of the interview. Here's the result http://lwn.net/Articles/672352/

I received it, although most of my logs have rotated already.

faster test suites via code coverge analysis

Thinking about using code coverage to speed up a test suite. Run the whole suite once to find which tests cover which code. Then a code change can be tested incrementally by only re-running those tests that cover that code.

Anyone know of a test system that does that?

A difficulty would be when code changes change the coverage (eg, during refactoring). The incremental test run would run too many or too few test cases due to its coverage data being out of date.
