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.

hoping to connect this with pump.io somehow - is there a quick "pump post FOO" commandline tool here?
- I'm retiring Obnam, my backup program.Show all 10 replies
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.

Back on the balcony
We moved the boy into his own room (slept in our bedroom before). Cons: I no longer have my own home office aka man cave. Pros: I can now access the balcony in the evening, and have a beer/coffee/tea there. I'm currently enjoying the latter.
Rhubarb, mint and maple syrup crepes.
(Followed by tomato, parm, and herb crepe.)
Second time I've made crepes. And I've reached peak cast iron -- I have a dedicated cast iron crepe pan.Bought a cast iron pan that looked good to me. http://northernway.blogspot.com/2016/05/skillet-part-two.html It's been a year and I still have not fired it up. Maybe I should promise myself this coming weekend.
Peak cast iron.
Mostly no-name except the Le Creuset dutch oven and Griswald "189" crepe pan. The square pan was a gift and I've not found a use for it. Rest is good old cast iron.
Also have a dutch oven (which I use for actual in-the-coals baking, so it's not pretty) with a broken lid. Used to use that lid on the medium skillet, and the only thing I need now is some skillet lids.
Has Sumana Harihareswara invented a new form of presentation? her LibrePlanet keynote was a menu of 35 lightening talks, with the audience selecting between them.
Planning to rewatch this, it went so fast and there was so much in there. Also, got a little bit busy with politicking that resulted in the final pick of #15.
She could give this talk a dozen times and it would be a dozen different experiences I'll bet.

My mom gives this talk high marks.
After digging into this some more, it's not quite the end of the world; colliding git commits can be generated, but it costs $75k and both such commits would point to the same tree, so such an attack couldn't do much damange at all.
I will continue to wear my gitSHA1pocalypse sandwitch boards though, the as chunks of the SHA1-sky continue falling.

Pleased to see a lot of Haskell code in Linux Weekly News this week! :)
"The plus sign above indicates the addition of types — which is the sort of thing that Haskell developers apparently like to do."
