Beautiful walk across golden gate park this morning, by the lake and rose gardens and up to the Internet Archive for lunch!

only in haskell

Found myself writing a function that takes as input a list of sizes of partitions. Which partitions? Whatever ones are included in the output of the same call to the same function!

[MegaBytes] -> ([MountPoint], PartTable)

(This technique exploits Haskell's laziness and is a form of "tying the knot".)

fandom is best avoided

Cannot describe how weird it is that George R.R. Martin is referring to some old friends of mine as "the Moen faction" http://grrm.livejournal.com/439207.html

Burning man for billionaires

Burning man for billionaires. http://burners.me/2014/09/12/a-sherpas-tale/ Analogies to Open Source, Contributor License Agreeements, etc left as exercise for reader.

No plans or expectations just me doing what I love and choosing to be involved in any way i wanted. my only reason to do anything was simply because i wanted to do it for the experience of doing it. there was no sort of expectation of a return. My efforts were merely gifts given to others for my own enjoyment.

[...]

I spent an entire day not entering the city that I came to be part of. An entire day dedicated to people that built tall walls to separate US from THEM. This event is meant to brings people together and it felt like it was invaded by a wall of money and power there to make sure we would be separate.

Teaching propellor how to partition disks and format partitions today. I have quite a lot of code, which I've never run. What could possibly go wrong...

Sounds like an instance of the Expression Problem. Type classes were made for this. ;)

pear picking


Raccoons found the ripe pears last night, so I picked one tree clean. Good start, will pick the other one later this week.



They'll keep a while, but I need to find more ways to use pears..

It's 80% the annoyance of needing to set up a database somehow, which I don't know how to do. And 80% the expectation that, once set up, I'll have to manually do stuff later to deal with upgrades, changes to schemas, etc.

I think that most things that use sqlite as some kind of bolted onto the side option that's not exhaustively tested under load are full of subtle bugs.

For example, simply reading from a sqlite database can crash with BUSY if there's another connection performing a write at the same time. There's a solution to this (WAL) mode, but it's not the default. Since this only appears under load involving writes, I guess that most sqlite backed web services are affected.

And then there's this bug I found where database queries can still fail BUSY, even in WAL mode, when under certain types of load. No response from the sqlite devs on this bug yet. http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.db.sqlite.general/93116

OTOH, if a program requires me to admin a SQL database, speaking as a user, I won't use it. Full stop. :/

the ginger-pear chutney of my dreams

Makes me want to dive into a curry and pull the nan bread over top of me.

Recipe: 4 pears, 1 onion, 1 thumb ginger grated, 1 tbsp crushed mustard seeds, vinegar and honey to taste. Sweat until sticky.

pear chutney

Yard is full of fruit.. 3 trees of pears, 1 apple tree, 3 grape vines, blueberries, all coming ripe. Pear chutney seems like a good idea.
