My Saturday was fairly productive, so far.

Set up a Raspberry Pi Zero with a webserver (and PennMUSH, but that'll be a different post sometime).  Learned how to turn Markdown-formatted text files into HTML via pandoc and then added a menu, footer and some basic CSS for a very plain website.

This'll be my project site; I already have a blog for SCA stuff, so this one will, basically, be everything else.  Coding, everything Linux, RPGs (and everything associated with them)...

His philosophy was a mixture of three famous schools -- the Cynics, the Stoics and the Epicureans -- and summed up all three of them in his famous phrase, "You can't trust any bugger further than you can throw him, and there's nothing you can do about it, so let's have a drink."

-- We meet Dydactylos the philosopher (Terry Pratchett, Small Gods)

...I can't remember if I've seen that, but I seem to remember wanting to.

Might have to rectify that this weekend :)

This should be of interest to both the gamers and the etymologists out there.

Messed around (a lot) with getting Raspberry Pis set up.

While I mucked around with three - an original, a 3 and a Zero - only the Zero is currently finished. It's powered by a USB port off of our main router, no additional wall wart needed and is on the network via a USB hub that has an integrated ethernet port.

I started a new blog that's being served from the Zero, to break out tech/geek projects and rambling from SCA journaling, but I need to tweak the theme some before publishing it.

In the meantime, check out the Raspberry Pi Zero:

Pu-erh is helping today. I need a different took than a Leatherman, though... Hacking pieces off of a cake winds up mangling more than it should ;)

Also, +Puppet​ mug in the background reminds me that their rebranding just invalidated all of our mugs and dozens of stickers ;) (Puppet Labs is now just Puppet, plus a logo change.)

TGIF, everyone :)

Oatmeal stout started, to become a bourbon vanilla cocoa stout after secondary :)

I considered using rye, whiskey or scotch instead of bourbon, but seeing comments on brewers' forums, I realized...none of my scotch or rye was going in this ;) At least not first time out. So, bourbon it is.

The vanilla and cacao nibs were an after-thought. I had them kicking around. I imagine the vanilla will come through, not so sure about the cacao.

First time back brewing in a while... Hope to make more of a habit of it. Also picked up stuff for an English Bitter; I figure if this turns into a decadent stout, we're still going to need something just for drinking ;)

Most non-Southern people I know who keep bourbon in the house use it once a year, for the Mint Juleps.  I think my favorite recipe for it is a bourbon Election Cake.

Started my morning belting Shirley Bassey's Goldfinger on the way into work and spent the trip home headbanging to Volbeat, 30 Seconds to Mars, Five Finger Death Punch and others.

Bring it, week.

This old man, he rhymed once.
He put up some valiant fronts.
With a wick-wack bitter lack of youthfulness & charm,
this old man kept rhyming on.

[...]

This old man, he rhymed twice.
He found this would not suffice.
With a wick-wack bitter lack of youthfulness & vim,
this old man was dour and grim.

[...].

This old man, he rhymed thrice.
He spoke a thin gruel of lies.
With a wick-wack bitter lack of youthfulness & spunk,
this old man’s rhymes was bunk.

This old man, he rhymed lots;
rhymed till he grew liver spots.
With a wick-wack bitter lack of youthfulness & cheer,
why he rhymed remains unclear.

-- This Old Man, MC Frontalot

Keep getting older and hairier on my neck, back and derriere, but not atop the pate. Dear DNA, let's negotiate! I'll trade the fading vision, you could have that back, plus this 30-year-old-man belly's kinda wack. My hearing is nearing deafness and I wheeze. Yo, please save me from the wrist ...

Tonight's productivity is dialed back quite a bit.

On the other hand, it is National Beer Day, so I'm consoling my diminished productivity with a couple Founders Breakfast Stout (double chocolate, coffee, oatmeal).

There's been a lot of running around, less sleep than I might otherwise like, etc. But damn, this beer is tasty.

Very, very interesting read...
 
Food for thought.  Fairly literally, actually.

Introduction
Sorry if I don't Circle you back if you are a random add.  Certainly not likely to Circle you if I don't already know you or don't already know someone in common pretty well.  If you message with some reason - shared interests, etc. - I'll Circle back :)

Otherwise...not such a fan of the random Circlings for Circling's sake.
Bragging rights
I think line-noise Perl is a goal, not a hindrance.
