That time a 13 pound chihuahua trapped a 38 pound beagle in a crate.

I really _want_ to support things like the Emerald Onion but when their IP addresses are being used to attack my IP addresses ... well, it's hard.

Bastards discovered my alternate SSH port. Time to move it around.

Ask not for whom the dog barks. The dog barks for thee.

This will work even if you do not have fuse installed but if you try to add it to your fstab it will fail without fuse.

It seems that mounting Shared Folders in VMWare Fusion with Debian 10 is not as the docs say. This is the way I got it working:

sudo /usr/bin/vmhgfs-fuse .host:/src /mnt/src/ -o subtype=vmhgfs-fuse,allow_other -o uid=1000 -o gid=1000

Where the uid and gid fields match my Linux uid and gid so that permissions are correct on both sides of the mount.

Got my first Mastodon spam today. Feel free to private message me if you want to know what domain to block on your instance.

Software is like an onion. If you open up the inner layers you start crying

I note the beginning of every new year by deleting old emails in my inbox and sent folder. Goodbye emails from 2009 and earlier!

My fingers are so cut up from my glass fusing class that my phone refuses to unlock without a passcode.

The Alaskan Way Viaduct permanently closed one year ago yesterday. Then it opened to pedestrian traffic on what was a much nicer day than today is. Here a few random photos

There were no fireworks last night from the Space Needle because of the high winds but the laser shows were pretty cool.

Asked Siri to play "ambient dog noises". It started playing "Jessie's Girl".

When I'm out hiking people often comment on my dog's backpack and say something like "look at him carrying his own weight." But that's not what he's doing! His backpack starts every hike empty. As the day goes on it fills with dog bags containing his poop, any trash that I generate -- like food wrappers -- plus any other trash that I find on the trail.

In 2020, follow my dog's lead and consider a resolution to leave trails cleaner than you found them.
