They gave me a *free snack* at the #vaccination site! I did not expect such a service.
But the important part is getting that vaccine, of course.
Finally made some time to implement UI for assigning categories to my groceries. It's rudimentary and hideous, but now I can add some actual color!
And now comes the time for my kid to take part in the development process, as I promised her she's going to help me choose the palette :-)
Open source photo editing software has become terrific! Darktable is a tried and true workhorse, bringing out contrast and sharpness and driving sky color to the unnatural blue-ness that I like. But then stitching two side by side shots into a panorama with Hugin happened pretty much automatically. It took me about 15-20 minutes to do everything.
I think I did pretty well on this refactoring :-)
It's not a direct translation of the code from imperative to functional, I had an idea along the way about making the algorithm itself simpler. But it achieves the same result.
Anyway, I just wanted to show off an impressive diff :-)
On a third try, I think I've got the hang of making a pie dough. The filling is spinach, mushrooms and mozzarella. Another vegetarian option in my toolbox.
Finished Edward Snowden's book, Permanent Record. The guy sure can write, it reads like a thriller! That it is also a true story about our life right now makes it a must read for everyone. Privacy is not just for geeks, and he makes a lot of convincing arguments as to why *you* should care too. (And no, not just because NSA watches your nudes.)
This pandemic has become inseparably tied to board games at my house. https://www.flickr.com/photos/isagalaev/50309363967/in/dateposted/
We did flee that island! With all the treasures. https://www.flickr.com/photos/isagalaev/50307700432/
Did you know that a needle simply floated on water surface *is* a compass? It's so fun to share this kind of trivia with your kid! Mine thinks it's magic!
P.S. No they are not perfectly aligned with the phone. I trust the needle more.
What I like about homemade sauces is that they're not perfectly homogenized. They have texture. There's some stuff *happening* in them.
Also, you can put a humanly appropriate amount of sugar in it. There's no chance getting that in an American store.
