Ok, #fediverse, I've got a regular kindle and a fire tablet. I'd line to keep my current page in sync between the devices even for books not from Amazon. Thoughts?
The Problem With Debugging Your Own Code
2017-02-08T03:22:17Z via Puma To: Public
So, I've been fighting with this code for months off and on wondering why it didn't work when I followed the API exactly like the example. When I finally looked at the stack trace instead of assuming I was screwing up the API calls, I setup my function to return a value and I wasn't 😳 >_<

Podcasts Ahoy Hoy
Finally got all my #podcast shows queued up. 27688 episodes for 14800 hours 17 min. Good thing I play then at 2x speed. #Antennapod #podlife

Sadly, I had to clear the queue and go to the original way of querying up shows that have episodes unlistened to from 2008 or older, and then doing the same for 2009 once I'm in to '08, etc. Well be more work but my podcatcher was basically unusable with all the episodes queued.
Software Freedom FTW
I read a couple of paragraphs of "Why Software Shouldn't Have Owners" to the baby today because it's never too early to instill #freesoftware values.
OK #fediverse, I need some suggestions for a good low calorie, low sugar #coffee. Everything I make turns out bitter, watery, or both.
If you mean a coffee that goes well with minimal sugar, the better quality the better it tastes. Stay away from C. robusta varieties, they are going to be bitter.
Get a good-to-great C. arabica, like Limu from Ethiopia or Kona from Hawai'i; get it in a medium to dark roast, grind it to about the grain of table salt size, and use an Aeropress. (I'm not an Aeropress employee, it's the best coffeemaker I've ever used, is all.) Don't boil the water, bring it to about 95C.
(Also, the fresher the roast, the less bitter the brew ... if you can roast the beans yourself, grind them immediately, and brew, do it.)
That is good advice, which I will try to remember the next time I'm shopping for coffee, however, as I have a giant tin of Maxwell House Wake-up Roast, that won't be for a while. :(
My more immediate concern is with coffee/water/creamer/sugar ratios. My current measurements that aren't working are 1-1.5 TBsp grounds per 6 oz water with 2 TBsp liquid creamer and 1 TSP sugar per 6 oz brewed coffee. but that doesn't seem to be nearly enough.
My two main problems are
1) I don't necessarily like coffee itself as a foreground flavor, and prefer it in the background, but present.
2) I'm on weight watchers and under the current system, adding sugar is one of the fastest ways to add points to something.
I am willing to go artificial sweetener and sugar free creamer and even non-dairy powder if it would help.
