Yeah, it was a perfect day for it (an allegedly 2 hour round trip walk/hike that actually took 4 hours for a group of us)

We're running a crowd-funding campaign to support a new member management project for political parties and NGOs like ours and we need your help!
Can you spare $5 to help us finish this campaign and get focussed entirely on the 2016 Federal Election?

My unplanned activity on Easter Monday
We live on a fairly steep hill. The house is slightly more than 340 metres above sea level, and there's a large dam half way up the length of the property, at an altitude of about 370 metres. Some clever person installed a run of one inch diameter poly pipe from the dam down to the house with ...

I've been reading The Archdruid Report regularly for a long time now, because unlike me, John Michael Greer posts every week and always writes something interesting. Given that we've got a federal election coming up in Australia and that I've mentioned one of JMG's notions on the current state ...

OOPS, THAT DIDN’T WORK -- a Tragedy in Three Acts, based on a true story

(If you're into IoT stuff, home automation or fancy lightbulbs, this one's for you)
As an experiment, I've written a play. It might be viable to perform in an actual theatre, provided there's a large screen with a projector that a few between-scene montage things can be played on. Failing that, we'll just have to run with a short film version.

+Douwe Reimerink nope I won't be selling it :-) Anyone who can run a Python script can use my onboarder (https://github.com/tserong/lifx-hacks/blob/master/onboard.py) gratis, then use either the official Android app for control, or can use LIFX's publicly documented protocol or one of their (now unmaintained) language libraries.

I did suggest to LIFX support that if they open sourced their Android app I'd be happy to fix the onboarding problem myself, but apparently "there are currently no plans to open source the LIFX app."

If you have any interest at all in how we humans perceive and imagine things, go read this now.
This is not a joke. It is not “blowing my mind” a la BuzzFeed's “8 Things You Won't Believe About Tarantulas.” It is, I think, as close to an honest-to-goodness revelation as I will ever live in the flesh. Here it is: You can visualize things in your mind. If I tell you to imagine a beach, ...

Yeah, it's been a great few days looking this material up. I did the BBC online test however they left out my imagination category. "The images are more vivid than reality".

Finally I've have empirical proof that I've probably been tripping my whole life :)

Here's something for all my buddies in storage to critique. +Lars Marowsky-Brée, +Florian Haas, +Dave Chinner, and everyone else, have at it ;-)

+Lars Marowsky-Brée ah, yes, of course! Presumably with a Ceph cluster for recipe storage (bonus: if we've got a storage/server rack that's not quite fully populated, the unused slots make for a nice warm place to proof bread dough)

Accidental currywurst sauce analog:

- 1/4 onion, finely diced
- 1 - 2 tsp crushed garlic
- 1 tbsp buttter
- 1/2 tomato, finely diced
- 1 tsp ground cummin
- 1 tsp cayenne pepper
- 1 tsp salt
- random amount ground black pepper
- 1 tbsp tomato paste
- a bit of water
- a bit of flour to thicken

1) Sautee onion & garlic in butter.
2) Add tomato, cummin, cayenne, salt, black pepper, tomato paste, water. Stir.
3) Simmer, stirring occasionally.
4) Add flour (carefully, sprinkled/sifted) to thicken as necessary.

Turns out to be enough sauce for about three sausages.

I should probably scale this up and figure out a slightly more formal recipe, but figured I'd better record the experiment for posterity before I forgot the details ;-)
