Pinned toot

I registered this account a while ago but haven't used it actively.

I'm a Python programmer and former Sysadmin in Toronto. I like tinkering with 3D printers, raspberry PI and electronics on the side.

I'm a Linux geek and participate with @gtalug.

Besides computer hobbies I like running and cycling a lot.

I'll be posting more of my side projects and hobbies here, I'll try to put other topics under cw.

GNU’s Not Uniplexed Information and Computing Service Image Manipulation Program

From the big sleep -- "I went to bed full of whiskey and frustration and dreamed about a man in a bloody Chinese coat who chased a naked girl with long Jade earrings while I ran after them and tried to take a photograph with an empty camera".

I see how Coen brothers took this concept and ran with it in The Big Lebowski.

Reading The Big Sleep "The coupe went west on the boulevard, which forced me to make a left turn and a lot of enemies, including a motorman who stuck his head out I to the rain to bawl me out".

In a recent couple of months I've been trying to be vegetarian, and it mostly works for me with a few occasional slip-ups.

This article is describes the large environmental impact of eating beans instead of beef, and this makes me feel more hopeful about the future.

Today in old-school unix.

This is how I forwarded 2358 messages messages from unix mailbox to another account

for k in `seq 0 2357`;
do
echo 'forward another@account.org' | s-nail -f mbox

done

Also forwarding from now on is done by having .forward file in my home directory with the destination email account.
