I'm learning this about temperature sensors: Once you have a few, you just want more.

Configfs support for device tree overlays has still not landed in mainstream ?

There seems to be no reasonable way to add something to device tree on Debian other than rebuilding the whole thing. Ugh.

Postal service delivered a package to the driver's seat of my car. a) Was not aware my car has a mailing address b) car was parked right in front of my house so WTF?

I'm wondering, for example, if the branch predictor could take the page table/TLB into account, thus preventing one process from poisoning its predictions for another process.

(Also, I know bumpkiss about CPU design. I actually managed to fail a college class on it. True story.)

What's your over-under on the generation-after-next of processors from either Intel, AMD, or Arm being designed to avoid Spectre attacks?

I'm seeing a whole lot of acceptance of the status quo in discussion of CPU design and Spectre, but the status quo has a way of changing.

On the plus side, if we're all in a simulation, looks increasingly likely we can break out.

Watched the NYC ball drop for 1st time in years and got some culture shock.. Mostly from CNN cutting to a Denver pot-party where their reporter proceeded to hand out a THC drink to some people live on air (CNN cut away from that in a hurry). Also such big screens in times sq and such hollow frenticness.

In the world of my cat, the armpit is the gateway to the warm world of under the covers. Even if the armpit is not near any covers.

@cypnk cold smooth shiny thing destroying my brain is *exactly* what I'd be worried about if I ever set foot in an apple store

Ordered a bunch of 1-wire temperature sensors. The house already records battery temp and PV controller temp; planning to also record outdoor temp, indoor temp, fridge temp.

Things in my house that have a fan: The two ceiling fans. Things that don't: Everything else, even if I have to risk destroying it to get it that way.

@liw seems that model numbers like 710 mean increasingly little; some 710's have a fan, some don't. I lucked out.

@liw surprises with this one:

1. only 1 usb port, boo hiss
2. almost an inch narrower than my previous laptop despite same screen size
3. apparently it has no fan?!

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.

Back at Cornell for the first time in 21 years. My feet still remember the way around.

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.
