bearish

Found a footprint, with claw marks. I think too close together to be a bear.

surely not racoons

Garbage can dragged 10 feet across yard, bags a further 20 feet down hillside. I found a long scrape where a large animal slid.. bear?!

midnight fridge thief

A racoon opened my fridge (on the porch) and stole some eggs and steak last week. Had to move the propane burning fridge into the house.

Hayduke

When Carrot Quinn started blogging about the Hayduke trail, I had no idea what it was. Would it take a few days or a week? Why hike in such desert conditions in the first place? In Utah?!

62 days later, so many descriptions of enchanted tiny canyons later, photos of unworldly slickrock landscapes later, grand canyon later, past polygamyville ... Now I know how little I know, in the best way.

We’re walking past a large compound when five small, tousled blonde heads pop up over the high metal fence.

“What are y’all doin?” Says the oldest boy. He’s maybe ten.

“We’re walking across Utah,” says Dan. The boys’ eyes practically bug out of their sockets.

“Why don’t you just drive?” Says one of the younger ones. His face is dusty and he’s wearing a backwards baseball cap.

“Because this is an adventure,” I say. The boys stare at me.

A woman with a hair poof and a prairie dress appears outside the front door. She’s putting empty plastic water jugs on the curb.

“It’s so great,” I say quickly. “We walk through all these canyons.”

“And you just find a place to camp?” Says the oldest boy.

“We have a tent,” I say.

The woman is calling the boys. They startle, and the blonde heads dissapear.

moms
Mom and I walking, separated wild turkey and her chicks. Mother turkey flew back past us. Followed by a chick, who flew *between* us. Wow!

hello
I'm holding a computer in the palm of my hand. It's small and warm. It's grepping its filesystem for my name. 991 matches found.

I backed this kickstarter and am looking forward to it finally arriving in the next couple weeks. (I have the CHIP board already, nice enough little arm board.)

score
Won a zero degree Browning sleeping bag for $20 at the neighborhood auction. Turns out to be really nice and worth 5x more. But the real value is cowboy camping out under the stars, snug in the chill..

electrum insecure use of ssl
https://github.com/spesmilo/electrum/issues/1782
https://github.com/spesmilo/electrum/issues/1783

At this point, I'm not particularly suprised when a program turns out to utterly fail at SSL cert validation. Because that seems to be how SSL libraries are designed to be misused. OTOH, this is a program I've entrusted with a few thousand dollars in the past. If I own bitcoin again, I'll have to think twice about using Electrum.

For me it's less pictures and more abstract things. I can picture my mom's face right now, but it's about things like the quality of her gaze, tilt of her head and not an exact shape or image. When I imagine a beach I remember vividly the salt air, the warm sand, the waves rumble, the horizon all around, but it's not any kind of photorealistic picture. A sufer is a vague shape, maybe a human outline, plus movement vectors for the surfer and the waves.

I also have dreams that include complete source code to programs that I can edit in my dreams (and often works if I type it in, unless the programming language was also dreamed up). And I can visualize entire routes on well known roads and trails (hours and hours of them), but it's all about the turns, the rises and falls, the outlines of the view at any point along the way, the feeling of a place, but never any images.

Never any colors, come to think of it. Triangle? Sure, and I can rotate tetris peices in my head and slot them into place. But red triangle? No, it's just 3 angles with lines.

M.U.L.E.

Played M.U.L.E. for the first time last night. Would have so loved this in 1983. Better late than never.

Every place I've posted in the past 2 days is within 1.5 hours of my hometown. And every one, I've never been to before. Whole lotta hidden amazing stuff in these hills.

no tea

My laptop's touchpad does not like tea. Ended up replacing the top half of the laptop with spare parts to get a working laptop again.
