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.

Did I really nap away the whole afternoon? Yes, yes I did.

bonus acronym: ICFP

Booking a flight, and pretty sure that picking an airport I don't want (SJC) + nearby yields cheaper flights to the airport I do want (SFO), than picking it directly does.

Oh well, user-hostile non-free software aside, I'm going to SFO, and YVR in August!

Actually, I'm a little wrong about applicatives ordering there. And you could write something order-dependent if you really wanted to.

orders

Peeve: Programs that can only parse options in certain orders and not in other orders.

I'm looking at you git log foo --stat, and at you gpg --recv-key foo --keyserver=bar

Hmm, that's another nice thing about optparse-applicative. Applicatives fundamentally don't impose an order of operations (this is what distinguishes them from monads), and so option parsers built using it cannot have this bug.

I dial-down overnight, for t-storms (5 of them today!) and in rare cases when I need a voice call.

phreaky

Dialup internet is weird in 2015. As my ISP continues to experience periodic routing problems with their local dialin numbers, I thought I'd sign up for another ISP.

Before I did so, thought I'd check if this other ISP supported PAP authentication. So, I changed ppp to call their dialin number to check how it failed to connect.

But it didn't fail. Somehow, my old, currently broken ISP's login/password worked to authenticate with, and indeed got me online with working routing. Routing via an ISP I've not signed up for.

Seems I stumbled on two VISPs that use the same pool of POPs. http://globalpops.com/about_visp.html Probably also explains why the ISP with the routing problem is completely unable to debug it, since they're not running the gear at all.

speaking of tech support

"Oh yeah, my goat jumped on my laptop" concluded a recent (family) tech support call. Of course this was only mentioned after I'd gotten as far as diagnosing a hardware problem with the touchpad. ;)

Internet connection down all day. Made mistake of calling tech support to try to explain to them how their network routing and radius servers were broken.

Recuperated in river, which is a much better use of network-less time.

Apologies for the triple-post. I posted once, was unable to edit or delete that post (no edit or delete button in pumpa; no idea why); so re-posted it. Repost didn't seem to go thru, so I clicked on submit again, and it double-submitted.

I wish that I could post to pump.io via git commit.. If I ever write some pump server in haskell, that'll be how it works, obvs.

13 hours

The madness of long summer days is upon me. Firehosed haskell code all day until brain ran dry, then picked berries in a meadow until red became indistinguishable from black.

progress in certian directions
So annoyed by Evince 3.16.

* When I tell it to go fullscreen, it adds a second, autohiding toolbar, but keeps the toolbar that was already there. So 2 toolbars I don't want, both nearly the same. Probably because I'm not using gnome shell, but sheesh.
* A few seconds after scrolling, it auto-hides the scroll indicator. Because who cares where they are in a multi-hundred page document? (Oh well, at least the page info is displayed on both toolbars..)

But hey, it supports touch-scrolling..

better than car alarms
Listening to cicadas tune up the past several days. There seem to be at least 3 different kinds this year. The symphony threatens to be deafening.
