At least there were some rainbows on my drive to a conference for work

It occurs to me that the advantage of a modern cookbook compared to a recipe blog post is you only have to wade through the writers life story once, at the start of the book, instead of at the start of every recipe.

I don't know how to reshare twitter video over here,

but it's a link to two dogs playing tether ball with each either.

i have a use case for network connected kitchen appliances.

Having clocks auto-update for time changes is pretty nice.

Also I released a slightly fixed version of doc-central.

Also if anyone is curious this is the earliest bug I could find on the Debian BTS.

bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugrep

all the numbers I tried below 50004 reported "There is no record of Bug {number}"

I think it's kind of cool to have closed a 5 digit Debian bug.

( Hopefully opening in a new tab is a reasonable solution to "Frames should be gone when viewing documentation" bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugrep )

Kid drew a pair of pictures for me.

Robots riding bicycles on one side, and a no car sign on the other.

She also told me she didn't know how to get rid of cars while she gave me the picture

I was looking at my timeline, and I think gardeners have more pleasant to look at photos than safe streets advocates.

E.g.

(Streets designed for cars are usually pretty ugly)

I was trying to decide between writing a utility to help manage a home ldap server or trying to bake crackers last night.

Doesn't every need a home network with single sign on? I mean it is kind of annoying with different auth databases for mail, jabber, file sharing, source repositories...
