better than car alarmsListening 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.
celebrationsYesterday we celebrated my Dad's 74th, and the beginnings 40 years ago of our family's Ocracoke Island tradition. And, if we had known, in our news-free sand and surf bubble, could have celebrated marriage equality too!

reproducible builds long tail
haiku for deterministic builds http://source.ikiwiki.branchable.com/?p=source.git;a=commitdiff;h=361076e55d329c0297b2ddf450003ee7ce210925 by smcv
human interest details
ISumaTV is doing content distribution in Northern regions of Canada using git-annex, and free software built on top of it. I like to imagine this involves bush planes and dog sleds and satellite receivers with my software on them, but I really don't know the human-interest details.
We programmers so rarely do, often all we get to see is the bug reports..
http://www.isuma.tv/media-players-network and http://isuma-media-players.readthedocs.org/en/latest/design.html are an interesting reads anyhow.the hard drives and machines are usually shipped by planes, and the uplink is satellite... there way more folklore than we like to think up there... a lot of the original culture is being lost in our globalized nightmare, unfortunately... which is exactly one of the things isuma is trying to adress!

Down from 11 docker containers on 3 servers to 3 docker containers on 1 server. Eight containers converted to systemd-nspawn.
But, I have not found the way to make systemd-nspawn containers work with --private-network and --port, which I need for the last 3 containers. Missing a network configuration piece. I think that I need a systemd-networkd built with iptables support, to get the necessary forwarding and masquerading.
http://0pointer.de/blog/projects/socket-activated-containers.html seems like an easier way to go. And also really quite cool. But I'd need a socket activated apache, or to switch to another web server that supports socket activation.
trust bleeding way
Time for IceCat to be included in distributions, it seems.Which of the following does 'trust bleeding away' refer to?
1 [ ] the very existence of sponsored tiles (adsinnewtabs)
2 [ ] enhanced (ie adsinnnewtabs) is the default config
3 [ ] classic (ie no adsinnewtabs) was shipped with a bug causing it to show adsinnewtabs
4 [ ] opaque lawyer/PR documentation
5 [ ] other
Bug seems to have been reported at least at
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1103599 with only WFM responses.
IIUC classic mode should not display ads: "Classic to show only unenhanced History Tiles" says https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-do-tiles-work-firefox

Three hours swimming at the river.
Wow, it's low, and busy, but my fav swimming hole is still quiet and 14 feet deep.
For the 1st time, three of my projects are described in the Haskell Communities and Activities Report. Read about git-annex, propellor, scroll, and a whole lot of other interesting haskell projects!
Should have done that a while ago, but impostor syndrome.
Wow, that's a huge report. There's really a lot happening.
While browsing other stuff and looking for yours, I started thinking about how Propellor has parallels with the GuixSD system definition and NixOps and whether a natural extension of Propellor might be to define packages as well as high-level systems. Then I reach Propellor and find that NixOS is indeed an explicit inspiration. :-)
strugglesWaded thru creek and swamp to install a cubietruck server, which ended up getting done without any console access at all. ... All after waking up at 5:30 am.
Will finish configuring new autobuilder from home thru ipv6 tunnel past 3 layers of NAT.
After all that work to deploy the server, here's the entire system configuration:
honeybee :: Host honeybee = standardSystem "honeybee.kitenet.net" Testing "armhf" [ "Arm git-annex build box." ] & ipv6 "2001:4830:1600:187::2" -- No unattended upgrades as there is currently no console access. -- (Also, system is not currently running a stock kernel, -- although it should be able to.) & Postfix.satellite & Apt.serviceInstalledRunning "ntp" & Apt.serviceInstalledRunning "aiccu" -- Using unstable to get new enough ghc for TH on arm. & Systemd.nspawned (GitAnnexBuilder.standardAutoBuilderContainer (System (Debian Unstable) "armel") Cron.Daily "22h")

beautiful background processesbeautiful background processes making me happy this morning
Terabytes and terabytes downloading automatically to 50+ clients!
After automatically deploying a container and cross-compiling ghc in it and patching and installing dozens of libraries, this android autobuild worked the first time!
abstraction is nice
Switching autobuilders from docker containers to systemd-nspawn machines, and freeing up tons of disk space.
Seems that docker leaks disk; I deleted every image and container, but it was still using 60gb. Perhaps files created by older versions of docker? Good riddance, anyway.
Nice thing is, my propellor configs work equally well for setting up the autobuilders in docker or systemd-nspawn. Although so far only for containers that don't need any ports exposed.
