Finished The Lord of the Rings. My second try at reading the entire thing. First time was ~20 wars ago when didn't know English too well, and Tolkien's language proved to be way too hard!
Also fun fact: this book was the first thing I earned by coding. And I don't mean I bought it with earned money, I was literally given this very book!
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.)
