@cwebber you can do it with raw mode, but don't expect it to be pretty

sudo showkey -s

Opportunity for some modern terminal to get a unique feature..

Firewood delivery day is a good fitness benchmark.. Much less wiped out than I used to be by it.

I can hear my neighbor's bass from 1 mile away. This is unusual and disturbing.

Noise sensitivity is not fun.

AC power is still somewhat black magic to me.

I mean, I understand a bridge rectifier, kinda, but.. So much analog hurts my brain.

Hmm, power factor is 0.12 and I don't know how my inverter deals with low loads with such a bad power factor.

Probably buffers it ok? Or perhaps it really uses 25 watts..

Pondering leaving my 3 usb drives powered on 16/7. I have a USB hub with per-port power control, and with their ports off, there's ony a 3 watt parasitic draw.

I imagine that Google might reason:

We can pick a high enough valuation that it's not viable for a competitor to pay it (eg two orders of magnitude higher than the cost to build the derivitive work), and we can absorb the extra harberger tax with little burden, taking it out of our current open source marketing budget.

Then when google later kills that project, they lower their payments or stop paying, and eventually the project's source gets released.

@cstanhope but the question is, what would happen if someone used this for a project that corps do want to use?

Some of us do use AGPL even though this means Google is going to ignore our software. 🙋

@cstanhope yeah, very different when it comes to real estate, although eminent domain is a sort of similar forcing into the "commons" (except it's abused)

@liw so does BSD

The interesting thing is it plays off a company's desire to make it proprietary with their financial support of free software. The more a companty can't bear the thought that someone could buy them out, the more "tax" they pay.

(of course all 4 functions can be built by repeatedly composing a single higher-level function)

@cwebber ya know, instead of rotating shapes, you could rotate a list of four point lookup functionsl..

granted the only time I wrote tetris, I was 10 and couldn't figure out how to rotate arrays, so I listed all the rotations manually

@liw @algernon I wonder if there has been any study of how submitting such a form affects the overall level of spam received. It seems that an confirmation that a human read the spam would be valuable

@liw @algernon oh idk, if you're running a million spam bots on IOT devices, talking to third party CNC servers run by some mobsters, it may take a while to get in touch with them all

↻8.2 ∿❄74% 28.00V 365W 1.22kwh 75(75)°F ☔6mi

My custom xfce panel data has kind of metastisized. That's 8.2 satellite SNR, inverter on, fridge on, battery 74% full at 28 volts, 365 watts solar production and 1.22 kwh total today, indoor and outdoor temp currently the same, and nearest storm is 6 miles.

I'd cram in indoor and outdoor humidity and stuff, but I'm out of pixels.

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.

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.
