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

This came in handy today, particularly the part where it turns an iterator into a file-like object. That should be built into Python.

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.

A few other random photos from Oregon... we saw Mount Hood from the Portland Japanese Garden which is an unusual sight in December and we went out to Cape Disappointment and saw both the Cape Disappointment Light House and the newly redone North Head Light House. Definitely an area to return to in the summer for the Discovery Trail.

These pictures look better if you turn up the brightness on your display.

Pho and I went down to the Oregon coast for Christmas and got to see one of the more amazing sunsets of my life. I could not decide which picture I liked the most. The water was getting blown by the wind and birds were landing just where I wanted them. And I almost got dragged in by a wave.

I took some better photos from the top of Mount Si and I am finally getting back to my computer to post them. Duke had a lot of fun in the snow, too.

Been getting a lot (~10) of garbage account requests every day. The verification email that gets sent with each one was impacting my "reputation" with my email service because they were bouncing. This is unfortunate. If only there were a way to not send those emails until I've moderated the pending account request. @Gargron

every time someone mentions me i get stronger
