A few pics from the Nairobi Coffee Exchange. This is how the majority of coffee in Kenya is bought and sold. The gratuitous green bean shots are a sample room upstairs from the auction floor where buyers can examine the lots they're bidding on. Outside shots are of the surrounding downtown area.

How not to run an open source project:

1) Create a library which quickly gains in popularity.
2) Accept a shared library build as "contrib" with little understanding of the responsibility involved.
3) Change the size of a publicly exported struct, breaking ABI without bumping soname.
4) Refuse to bump soname, claiming you might do it in the future for some more "drastic" changes which may or may not ever manifest.

On behalf of distro packagers everywhere, I think I can safely say: dafuq?

Really cool find at an insane "antique shop" at the Jersey shore. If this was someone's house, you would have seen it via A&E's Hoarders.

This is a 1920s self-maintaining safety razor kit. It was unused and came with all of the original paperwork. The hone and strop are both in good shape (no cracks!), and the action on the slide is pretty smooth. Needs a bit of cleanup and leather conditioner, but it's pretty neat!

Dear lazyweb,

With Linux 3.14, you might notice in /proc/self/mountinfo that your root's parent FSID is now 0, instead of the 1 that it's been for the last N years. +Tejun Heo wrote the change (9e30cc9595303b27b48) that caused this, but the change comes in a rather innocuous way. Instead of an internal kernel mount of sysfs being assigned 0, it's now the initramfs.

So far, this has already caused switch_root and findmnt (from util-linux) to break, cp (from coreutils) to break when using the -x flag in early userspace, and it's also been pointed out that systemd's readahead code makes assumptions about a device number of 0.

Are we now supposed to go and change all the assumptions in userspace about 0 being special? I'm conflicted. The kernel isn't supposed to break userspace, but it seems to me that FSIDs were never something to rely on -- similar to the block device numbering scheme.

Interesting name. Selectively breaking this down, "putz" in Yiddish means penis, and "meister" in German means master.

It's a penismaster.

Quickie tour of John Watling's distillery. They export 2 and 3 year old rum, but their pride is their 5 year old rum which is absolutely delicious. Available only on the island.

Note that the folks you see at the table in one of the pictures is literally their production line. They're hand filling and labelling every single bottle.

Random rooster shot for giggles.
