@OdyX it would need a trailing | --baz

a bit better, but doesn't scale well if there are more baz-like options

How to write a usage message for a command that needs one of --foo, --bar, or --baz, and which does not allow combining --foo with --bar, but does allow combining either with --baz?

"(--foo | --bar | --baz ([--foo] | [--bar]))" is accurate, but leaves something to be desired

seeing a lot of type level strings in code using new features

a bit uncomfortable with this, it's hard to tell when the code is stringily typed and when it's strongly typed

also spot the type-level typo that the type checker won't catch

building git-annex on my phone works, but it overheats and random stuff starts crashing.

It's amusing when Android says that the entire UI crashed, and offers non-working buttons to wait/retry/hide error

TWRP -> LineageOS -> f-droid -> termux -> proot -> debian

Installing a decent OS keeps getting easier & easier or something.

got a hand-written postcard from the Bredesen campaign

This is stunning because I have never, ever received any Democratic candidate mail. TN is too red for them to bother.

Anyway, I've never been convinced by Google's post-Snowden spin that their only problem involved their unencrypted intranet links, and now that we have a documented case of Google covering up privacy blunders, it's worth revisiting those Prism slides.

One group that still uses Google+ some is the more corporate side of the Linux development community; Google marketed it to them as early adoptors/influencers, and many of them stuck.

Probably there's public discussion that happened on there about technical descisions around but not directly affecting the Linux kernel, that's going to be lost unless the ArchiveTeam manages to save it.

1. Self-driving cars are claimed to be ready for the roads right now

2. The most reliable way to prove you are human online is to select regions of an image that contain a stop sign.

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.

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.
