posts brought to you by the category “anal retentiveness”

Das eez kaput! Sometime around 2002 I spaced the entire database table that mapped individual entries to categories. Such is life. What follows is a random sampling of entries that were associated with the category. Over time, the entries will be updated and then it will be even more confusing. Wander around, though, it's still a fun way to find stuff.

Mike Heins : Snapback2

Snapback2 does backup of systems via ssh and rsync. It creates rolling "snapshots" based on hourly, daily, weekly, and monthly rotations.

...

You might think this would take up lots of space. However, snapback2 hard-links the files to create the images. If the file doesn't change, only a link is necessary, taking very little space. It is possible to create a complete yearly backup in just over 2x the actual storage space consumed by the image.

Occasionally someone will ask me if I've considered opening a restaurant.

The answer is always and emphatically no, for a variety of reasons including lack of confidence (I prefer to call it healthy scepticism ) and no real understanding about how to stage an efficient kitchen. If you all want to come over and eat the same thing sometime between eight-thirty and ten o'clock at night, well, then we're in business.

And while it is a pleasure to cook for friends and family, one of the biggest reasons for not making a professional endeavour of it is that : strangers + food = a bunch of psychopaths, worry-warts and complete nut-bags.

I learned this very quickly during the few brief moments I worked in the food service industry and I don't, honestly, think there are any exceptions. I also learned that I have no sympathy for the kind of anxieties and peculiarities you're asked to suffer when you serve people a meal.

Take the poor wanker at the bakery, yesterday, lugging loaves of bread from the cooling trays to the front of the store and forced to wear a hairnet on his beard. His beard!

I know this may come as a shocker to some but if there were really a serious health and safety issue involving facial hair and food we'd have found out about it long before we invented the hairnet!

I don't like hairy food any more than the next person but, seriously, stop the madness.

Ed Hawco : Montréal has a few mythical bus lines

erhaps someone should write an essay about the 29 as a failed bridge of the two solitudes, going back and forth, empty and ghost-like, between The Main ... and Hochelaga-Maisonneuve

My first apartment was right in front of Parc Lafontaine, the main drag that the 29 runs. I lived there for 3-4 months, during which time all manner of bad things happened including long long walks to the Main to go grocery shopping. (This was before Mont-Royal became an actual nice place to go and was still an ugly, skanky street that you couldn't walk down without atleast one crazy screaming in your face. There were no little fruiteries; just a sea of depanneurs and a pizza pizza where we ate too many pizza pockets during the first two weeks while we waited for appliances to arrive. I can count the number of times I saw the 29, during those months, on one hand.

Randal L. Schwartz : Processing Footnotes

"The idea is that I insert a footnote into the main flow using a made-up tag of foot, and then this processor pass takes those out, replacing them with an anchor link and a unique number. Then, at the end of the file, all the footnotes are dumped out. For an example, look at the end of the program. And, I couldn't stop there, so I decided to allow nested footnotes (like those frequently found on the alt.sysadmin.recovery newsgroup). About half my coding time was spent getting those to work right. Someday, I must learn priorities."

Michel Bergeron : "Rien ne va battre la rivalité entre le Canadien et les Nordiques.

Ça allait au delà des équipes. C'était deux villes, deux brasseries et des journalistes des deux côtés. Et chaque équipe comptait 12 ou 13 Québécois dans son alignement. Moi, je ne vois pas de grosse rivalité aujourd'hui. Le jeu est robuste, mais nous sommes en séries éliminatoires." It was like salt in the wound to learn that Robby Ftorek, with his giant bowling ball helmet, used to play for the Nordiques .

Web Application Standard API (for) Bi-directional Information Interchange

"(wasabii) is an attempt to create a flexible, yet simple, API, running via XML-RPC, for various web applications running on heterogeneous platforms to communicate and interact. this effort is meant to replace the bloggerAPI by providing a non application-specific set of methods and arguements. in other words, wasabii is not specifically geared for "weblogs," though it may fit that model well. ideally, the API will be flexible enough to support other types of web applications and content managements systems. realistically, it will not be as simple as the bloggerAPI, but it will provide broader functionality."

Simon Kittle : Text::Outline 0.8

"And (that's right, there's even more :) another method - asXBEL - has been added. This is a simple method which just outputs the outline as an XBEL file. The obvious thing to add is the functionality to read in XBEL files so you can convert them to an OPML file, edit them, and save the out again. That will come, in good time." Sweet. I will add the necessary hooks to tie this into Apache::XBEL over the weekend.

Oh fuck it.

I'm just going to break it and see how long it takes to fix... I will put all the foofy dhtml stuff and permanent links back when I finish tweaking the backend templates. Obviously some re-thinking is in order. My apologies if I've upset your surfing routine. Breakage-reports are appreciated.

Alec Hanley Bemis :

"Whenever I begin to get wrapped up in records these days, however, I'm reminded that records are just objects. My nostalgia for these commodities is awkward and unwelcome in this, an era of frictionlessness, weightlessness, wirelessness and Web technology, and of frictionless, weightless talk about Web technology. Records are merely an amalgam of printed paper and flat plastic: garbage. They have become less real than digits floating through the ether."

A.P. : AOL to offer free service to schools

I'm not sure that Steve Case could be any more disingenuous when he says "We don't think of this as a business opportunity." In exchange for free bandwidth, the world's largest media company has been given license to track, record and and analyze the surfing patterns of students over a multi-year timespan. Oh yeah, students will be "blocked" from offensive material, which presumably means anyone not owned by AOL. It doesn't get any better than this when it comes to data-mining and product development.

Jean Paré

"Words are powerful. They are the DNA of thought. Philosophers have taught us that he who names things takes possession of them. New realities are like islands or continents. And words and names are not neutral. When we adopt the language or the lexicon of somebody, we become that somebody. When we accept the vocabulary of somebody with a message, we echo his message. And, of course, most of the time the media interview, report and even criticize with the very words that have been created by the people they report on or criticize. And we don't see the mountain because we walk on it."

Sam Henderson

thinks you should avoid the School for Visual Arts if you want to be a cartoonist. I recommend reading Dave Sim's How to become a cartooning self-publisher . A series of twenty essays originally published in his Notes from the President column, they cover most of the bases including 'How to find a printer', 'Copyright, trademarks and taxes' and 'How not to waste time and just produce comics'.

Jorn Barger : The First-Cut Manifesto

"The goal is to make at least one full pass over a document, and classify every character into some meaningful category, with a high level of robustness when faced with bad human editing." Interesting, but the "It" that does all this work sounds more like a human than a computer. If someone had figured out how to make computers be "very flexible at reading dates in human formats", we wouldn't have thousands of programmers sifting through lines of legacy code looking for the year 1900/2000. via kottke.org .
