LOL. Just got a call from the mayor ... of another city nearby that I don't live in.
Obviously pre-recorded.

Well that's cool.

So we have this ancient Ruby app. We have a docker image built for it that's 2 years old.
Several of the gems are no longer available at the specified versions, so building locally no longer works.

Well, I grabbed all the gems from the image and put them in our artifact repository. I modified the docker build to unpack those locally then install.

Voila!

FYI "list" cannot be a list.

“A Cherokee elder was teaching his young grandson about life.
"A fight is going on inside me," he said to the boy. "It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil- he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, self-doubt and ego.
The other is good- he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.
This same fight is going on inside you—and inside every other person, too."
The boy thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather,
"Which wolf will win?"
The elder simply replied,
"The one you feed.”

I haven't seen a lot of info on reading data from a FitBit device, but I did find this: pythonhosted.org/galileo/
That might be a good start.

Unsurprisingly, apparently FitBit uses a non-standard connection routine for connecting over Bluetooth.

All this cryptocurrency stuff from MollyRocket.

I don't trust any product listing on Amazon. My impression is anything you buy has a 50% chance of being what was actually listed. Enough times I've had a *slight* mismatch that turned out to make the product unusable for me.

It seems like "alternative" "online department stores" like Walmart are more terrible from a usability perspective; but maybe the products are more reliable? I don't know.

Every morning I brew 33:550g coffee:water in the Chemex.
This results in a serving size of about 240-250g coffee for me.
Lately I've noticed it is taking me longer to finish this cup. Often there is about a fifth of it remaining well after the morning routine has concluded.

I think it's time to reduce my dose!

My typical afternoon dose is a single brew of 15:250. That's a little smaller than the morning batch.

Tomorrow morning I'll brew 30:500 and we'll see about reducing the PM dose.

My broth gave me a FitBit Alta HR.
I like this device!
He also gave me a hand-me-down Android phone.
I decided not to de-google this one so I can use the couple of apps I'm interested that require the Google Services Framework.

I wound up connecting the FitBit app with a macro/nutrition app.
I like this setup, but the data privacy bit is eating me.

Surely there are FLOSS softwares for fitness trackers?
I haven't looked yet...

It seems to me there is good potential here.

I had a weird meditation experience today. You know when you black out and your vision encloses in with black clouds encircling it?

While meditating today I had that black cloud on the periphery close in, then relax, then close in, etc. It didn't seem to be correlated with my breath.

Interesting!

Wow. Getting hate spam sucks. Even if it is entirely spurious. LOL.

As I go through "The C++ Programming Language" (TCPPPL) I am finding so many errors in the sample programs. I have to assume this is due to the defaults used by g++ 11 compared with what was modern at the time this book was released (2014).

It is rare to find a code snippet that compiles without modification.

Thankfully the text itself seems to be fairly error-free. A couple of times I thought I found an error that, upon re-read, was just an error in my parsing of it. 🙂

Very confused why Casey is doing cryptocurrency interviews. The new "brief note" on it is not clarifying anything. LOL.

I see some people posting famous paintings. I'm into fine art too!

I don't remember how I came across it, but pointerpointer.com is basically my favourite website when I remember it exists.

Trying to dockerize an ancient Ruby application.
There are some dependencies that are no longer available, so I have to randomly upgrade stuff until it starts properly building again.

Wheeeee

Oh crap oh crap oh crap SA-X found me and now I am dead.

Ha ha. I am not good with stressful encounters.
