I saw Dave Jones on the Fedora
Planet doing "daily log"
posts in the form of overview-style lists detailing his thoughts
and discoveries from his day's work. I thought it'd be cool
to do them myself, at least for days when a more specific,
detailed post isn't appropriate. It's not every day you're
- Added a few things to my .zshrc (see dot-files repo).
- Signed up for coderbits. Dig the interface.
It remains a challenge to effectively rank/score developer activity.
- Exported badges to my Mozilla Persona Open Badges backpack.
- Implemented the favicon provided by decause, created from the Tahrir
logo he designed, which is an abstraction of Tahrir Square.
- Spent most of the day hacking on authorization stuff. Implementing
Pyramid's __acl__ machinery and doing some restructuring as
per issue #33
and issue #61.
- Decause, Qalthos, and I are still in contact with the EPA regarding our
submission for the National Day of
Civic Hacking's EPA challenge.
- Though we've provided screenshots, documentation, and whatnot, they
really want a live demo as soon as we can. I must defeat
OpenShift soon (and that means the latest version of charsheet will be live, too!).
- This little thing I started
the other day made a bit of progress
- Found the docs I was after.
- The functionality I need is not available where I need it. Pinged
#yum on Freenode about this. There has to be a reasonable
solution, what I'm attempting is far too basic.
What is up with the results of pkgwat search fortune?
- Related: sudo yum install astromenace -y.
Grateful Dead show of the day: 1979-12-05.
One of the recent changes to my .zshrc pipes the results of
fortune -a via fortune-mod through cowsay. Results
have been entertaining, as expected. One from tonight:
< Too ripped. Gotta go. >
I should really be keeping a better list of my thoughts
and discoveries during my work day. Perhaps these logs will become
a daily thing. If they do, they will definitely go along with
more topical posts.
