Many thanks to @bugZ for making me make hot sauce tonight. It is pretty cool to just get another case of woozy bottles from the basement.

Headed to the airport with @bugZ on the way to the hackathon in

Landed in Pittsburgh with @bugZ, the weather looks to be a nice relief from home for the few days we're here before on to Toronto.

In addition to awk(1)'s -safe mode, which uses pledge(2), sed(1) now also enforces a stricter pledge by default when input is ready from stdin:
