So we had a new water heater installed in the fall. A few months later, and I still haven't received an invoice from them. And I can't recall at all who it was that did the work. So I'm phoning local plumbers asking then if they did work for me and to send an invoice so I can pay it. Andrea is aghast ("you asked them to send you a bill?") but this is rural Ontario and nobody will send an invoice if they didn't do the work (just as I'm not going to take advantage and not pay them).
I have long and detailed dreams these days, a side-benefit maybe of getting older.
Anyhow, as part of one dream: the concept that you cannot classify something and describe something at the same time. Obviously a variation of the Heisenberg principle. But the idea is that nothing is inherently static - its properties are constantly changing - and classification requires focusing on a few static and fixed properties.
Probably not original, but I thought I'd share.
Woo! Full and complete installation of all the necessary modules for full gRSShopper functionality in Docker; now I need only secure the DB and I'm ready to do actual upgrades to the code. https://github.com/Downes/gRSShopper
Cycle Log 2020 - 3396 km, which is a personal record for me. View here:
Andrea and I were out hiking in the woods again today - 10 km in the eastern Greenbelt. Here are the full-sized photos: https://www.flickr.com/photos/stephen_downes/albums/72157717596485293
This is how I entertain myself on a holiday - a three-hour live-stream video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XSutbj2vgZc called 'Deploying a Serverless Jamstack Site with RedwoodJS, Fauna, and Vercel' which shows me following the (not always complete or accurate) instructions in a CSS-Tricks column about web programming. The resulting video wasn't very good (I'll get better) but it was a lot of fun (as I commented to Andrea, *this* is why I got a high-end computer, to make things like this (only better))).
