Recurring offer reminder: I'll help / mentor / teach / tutor / troubleshoot with anyone who wants to learn git for basic version control, collaboration, managing personal projects, or for a day job. I'll work to connect people with mentors other than me if they prefer - no need to explain why.

Same for bash, command line tools, and so on.

I want using & contributing to FS/OSS to be easier for way more people.

Boosts appreciated!!

Ice cream 

Made some quick mint chocolate chip!

I included the recipe from the Ben & Jerry's Homemade Ice Cream and Dessert Book, the changes I made were: I halved all the quantities, I thought I had Oreos but the bag had ripped and they were stale as hell so I used mini chocolate chips, and I added food coloring because I just like a nice minty green

If you look at reviews for this book (first printed in 1987) people are absolutely foaming-at-the-mouth furious that some of the ice cream bases have raw eggs in them, like this one. Do what's best for you but I try to buy good quality eggs and I don't worry about it, I've always been fine

I did a 1 for 1 volume substitution with the chips for Oreo pieces, and for the food coloring I used 2 drops green and 1 drop blue (the blue helps make it what we think of as a "minty" green rather than a "grassy" green)

COFFEE THREAD

I usually don't make red eyes at home, but I figured this morning I would give it a shot! I used the same beans for both components: Pilot Coffee Heritage beans, about 12 days off the roast.

Coffee (Aeropress):

20g in @ 2.2 on the Aergrind dial
200g Third Wave Water @ 82°C

Espresso:

18.0g in @ 1.80 on the Kinu M47 dial
target: 36.0g out in 30~45s, 9 bar flat profile

(I'll post the other shots unlisted to hopefully avoid spamming everyone!)
