Dear baofeng radio charger, why do you use 3 watts with nothing plugged in, and only 1.2 watts to power the radio?

It's gotta be tight looping its cpu to flicker that red/green LED. Sheesh.

installed a package with npm today.. it went like this

first npm warned about 2 known security holes in libraries, but installed them anyway. One was a 2017 code execution vulnerability in some kind of eval library, fixed in a newer version but the dependency had not been updated. Yikes.

Then npm crashed. I restarted it.

Then a package used a postinstall script to display an advertisement.

Then a package used a postinstall script to download a binary blob.

carefully prepared a time estimate for a job and it came to 666. So do you then fudge the estimate, or just put on the death metal?

why does my brain care about a ~15 ms audio delay when watching video, but not when watching someone speak from across a room?

freaking neural networks..

@cwebber re HUD, my thinking on that is I want good sky and cloud detection software, and then render my terminal there.

It's probably not too early to begin such a project as free software; I've pondered trying to learn all the CV to do it well.

@cwebber anyway, that's got to be why we still have both atom and rss -- so when one breaks you just use the other one

@cwebber don't have time to debug it right now, but I see it's failed to parse as valid atom and has fallen back to the tagsoup parser (which I added to it oops), which is not seeing the tags it expects to see

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.
