One step down, two to go. Big thanks to the city for bringing Portland one step closer to Google Fiber.

Ok Jeff, I've come to the conclusion that it's impossible to use cloud provisioner to do any form of unattended provision for one simple reason. You can not in any way, pre authorise or safely and securely automatically authorise a new client. This is an ommision as bigger than the grand canyon. It's the difference between being the go to tool of choice for cloud management and a complete waste of time. It's such a shame. I've lost track of the ways I've tried to skin this cat but it looks like Rightscale is going to be the choice I use. In my opinion you are literally throwing money down the drain. Thanks for the help and advice anyway.

My inability to "resize" images on a black canvas has always bugged me.  This command did the trick nicely today:

convert double-rainbow-tribute.jpg -trim -resize 1920x1080
-gravity center -background black -extent 1920x1080 +repage
double-rainbow-tribute.png

The -gravity center is the magic I've been missing.

Selfspy is a daemon for Unix/X11 that continuously monitors and stores what you are doing on your computer. This way, you can get all sorts of nifty statistics and reminders on what you have been up to. It is inspired by the Quantified Self-movement and Stephen Wolfram's personal key logging.

Really liked the Sketchtravel exhibit. We only made it through two rooms because it was so engaging.

What about the Steinway piano place behind it?! That place looks awesome.

OK, +Google+ Developers how do I claim my personal URL using my personal Google+ account instead of the work account that my name has been reserved for?  (I've read the FAQ and all the docs linked in the email but there's no mention of how to do this.)

Did you get the name reservation email to both accounts? I only got one and unfortunately it only seems to work for my work account. I can't make the URL do anything when I use my personal profile.

Hacking on the Raspberry Pi for a change.  The plan is to turn it into a low power bluetooth audio receiver for the car.  Any tips to set one up to automatically connect to an iPhone5 bluetooth or wifi hotspot?

Get notified of the recordings from PuppetConf 2012 as soon as they're published.

I hear the CERN keynote was particularly interesting.

Huh, sorta wich Google+ parsed markdown URL's.
Ellie K, 1/24/12 7:29 PM, Will Google Plus posts support more markdown soon? Or better yet, HTML tags for style like the ones allowed on old Sidewiki? This has been static since it was first announced...
