Pulled off the street into Radio Bristol to see the Indigo Girls! Live on air, and I was ten feet from the stage. I've been a fan for 19 years so this was super.

(Dianara repeatedly ate my words as I was typing them here. Some kind

of screen refresh that loses the comment form. I am reduced to typing words

into vim and pasting. This is relevant to a point below.)


I wonder if, had GNU targeted the Lisp Machine or some other more advanced

system, would the Four Freedoms have come out the same?


If nothing were compiled (scripting all the way down to and including the

kernel), then access to the source code would probably not need to have been

mentioned in freedom 1. It would be at most a footnote.


Lisp Machines apparently made it easy to access the source code behind any

part of the UI, and to dive down to lower-levels of code, and change

running code to see what happens. So perhaps freedom 1 would have tilted

more in that direction.


As I mentioned, Dianara has a bug that has made it difficult for me to post

this. I can't easily inspect Dianara as it's running and quickly instrument

it to verify my hypothesis about the cause of the bug. It would probably

take me hours to compile a debug build of Dianara and get to the bottom of

the bug.


At the same time I have a web browser with completely non-free javascript

on a website, and yet it's really easy there to inspect what code gets run

when I click on a button, or to find code that may reload the web page

while I'm typing in a form on it.

biking

Can mosty coast down from my house to the river. Return trip not too bad except the last half mile walk up the driveway. Biking along the river road, past fresh-cut hay fields is a delight, looking forward to fall.


Made it all the way to my favorite swimming hole. Thanks for the bike, dad!

This was the main idea I was playing with in my roguelike game scroll. http://joeyh.name/code/scroll/


Scroll can be used as a pager and the goal is to find your way to the bottom of the file.

Apeirophobia

My reasoning on living forever has long been that there are exactly two possibilities:

  • At some point your mind stops changing at all, or are stuck in some form of loop forever.
  • Your mind keeps changing forever, and so must eventually completely diverge from the person you started out as.

Both are existentally terrifying, so I'm glad it's only a thought experient. Apparenlty this is called Apeirophobia and afflicts the reliigous more viscerally.


I'd happily take a thousand years to think it over some more. ;)

(I'll bet that TAILS uses Diane's unbound suggestion to solve this, right? But unless the tor browser bundle includes its own dns resolver, I think it probably doesn't.)

laziness

Fixed a bug yesterday where laziness made my code 16 times as fast as it was supposed to be.

unexpected waterfall

Went out to dinner and learned of a 50 foot waterfall 3 miles from here. Nice hike but it would be better at a less dry time of the year.

water weight

Packing for 2 days of hiking and dry-camping in the Roan Highlands. Pack is scary heavy.

omg

Learned Servant, and implemented my http API using it in the time it took to run "stack install servant". (Granted, over a slow modem.)

That's a full server implementation, and a full client side implementation. And it's fully type safe. 66 lines of code.

achievement unlocked

Have a design using the 402 Payment Required HTTP response code.

Seems reasonable when insufficient proof of client work is provided.

Sleeping bag and podcast in the yard, after 40 minutes I've seen 30 shooting stars. Including one with a doube tail.

Brazil

http://evenmagazine.com/brasilia-at-midnight/

Very interesting reading to me. I have been trying to keep up with increasingly dire developments in Brazil, but had missed what happened after the president was impeached. Including the elimination of Brazil's ministry of culture, the protests over that, and its reinstatement.

That same ministry of culture brought me down there once, I had a trip through Brazilia's crazy architecture to the coast, and hung out with a lot of activists and farmers and craftspeople and educators and libre software fans and musicians, including a guy who I later learned was a designated national treasure. And I have seen pretty much the full scope of Brazil, from reasonably well off to the crushing poverty.

It's the country I most wish manages to reach its potential. Which is enormous.
