Heartbleed updates now available for Tomato USB by Shibby based routers. All users should upgrade at their soonest convenience. Seems a bit broken on chrome browser, the width of the page is messed up, but it worked fine on Firefox. Look for version 117.

Yeah, I'm with you. When I ran open firmware on my AP's, I always just used them as AP's, with a real firewall in front doing all the heavy lifting. These days I have a fancy HP thing hanging on my wall (E-MSM460) in the interest of eating my own dogfood, so I'm finding myself a bit out of touch. Glad to hear Shibby's still cranking out builds.

I have become so JavaScript ret*rded that today it was simpler for me to fire up a Yeoman project and pass a series of JSON files through lodash to create a CSV formatted file that it was for me to write a script. sigh

All the tools I tried to convert JSON to CSV failed big time because the object was filled with non-uniform keys. Each key was unique. One pass through _.map and I was done.

That's me every day, though I prefer "javascript impaired". ;)

Amazon is gold boxing popular board games. Great for family night or just to enjoy with friends. 40% off is not too shabby.

I picked up another beaglebone black for messing around with. Today I put a full go dev environment on it, including the excellent vim-go by +Fatih Arslan on it. Running tmux, zsh and vim it's a very nice self contained dev environment.

My RPi's never seem to stay running. Not sure if it's SD corruption, input power sensitivity, or what. I had one issue with a BBB firmware update, but I fundamentally trust them a lot more than the RPi.

I've skimmed the first few chapters. This looks excellent. You can even dip your toes into writing ECMA6 by using traceur. It's a very exciting time to be using JavaScript.

I don't need analytics to tell me I'm about as likely to eat a McRib as I am to get hit by a baby grand. :-)

Excellent pictures of last night's blood moon eclipse. H/t +Christy Wadge
 
My talented wife, +Christy Wadge, shot tonight's "blood moon" eclipse in some detail. If you missed it, the whole thing looked much clearer through her lens than the naked eye anyway.

Richard Crowley gives a really useful and interesting presentation about creating web services in Go at scale.

Very cool vim plugin
 
As someone who lives in vim (email, diffs, code, etc.), and relies on git for everything, this plugin is wonderful.

If you don't use git, and are stuck with those "other" vcs's, there's https://github.com/mhinz/vim-signify which supports everything else.

Did a little work updating gomkv my little tool to generate Handbrake CLI configurations while prepping videos for encoding. Added a couple of features that I myself needed, one to add an AAC sound track by default to all encodings if one isn't already included, and secondly to add the video resolution to the title of the video generated to make it easier to catalog them.

It's the first go I've had a chance to write for about 9 months and was a gentle reminder I really need to write more. It's such a straightforward language with very few surprises.

While I was at it, I got a chance to try out the cool new go-vim plugin. It didn't use all the features yet and it's a slightly different workflow, but it seems really cool and useful. The only thing I haven't been able to get to work properly has been formatting. I'm sure there's something left over in my environment that's interfering.

Other than that, highly recommended. Give it a try.

Very fast, in and out in half an hour, including a quick oil change, recommended because I'd already hit the maintenance indicator. 30 for the oil change, 40 for the smog. I would use him again.

Really great place. They are nice, friendly and obviously take a lot of pride in their work. Rosanna is an excellent stylist.

Disappointing nabeyaki udon. All veggies, no egg, layered flavor or tempura. One note dish.

Delicious. I ordered the Falafel plate, Greek Salad and Hummus plate for 2 adults and a child. The food was fresh and very tasty. The Falafel are not a style I've every tried before, and are really tasty and different from other Mediterranean places. The hummus was creamy and really excellent. I will definitely eat here again.

Rooms are very clean. WiFi access is excellent though a tad confusing with 4 access points. Rooms are well equipped for the price. Major con is for families staying here. We arrived in the evening and were quickly checked in to a very nice room. Around 9 some other guests came back and then spent the next 2.5 hours talking loudly and cussing in the parking lot. The management did nothing as far as we could tell to get them to quiet down. I was woken again at midnight when some other guests started talking and left their door open. Not recommended if you like peace and quiet or have young children.
