“Years of it.”

“… I don’t even know what you do for a living, it hurt to be standing next to you when you said that.”

Finally wrote a post that's been stewing for a while: What You Miss By Only Checking GitHub

Many researchers, entrepreneurs, open source sustainability commentators, et al. assume that GitHub activity is a reasonable proxy for FLOSS as a whole. It's not.

Goes over some examples, a marketing graphic that made my eyebrows go up, research about how unrepresentative GitHub can be, and some tools to try.

So I ended up simmering it for longer than planned (nearly a day!) and using an immersion blender to puree it because some of the tomato pieces were not going to break down on their own.

The result is that I have five 12oz/354ml jars of 'dark and brooding' homemade ketchup :)

3 pounds of red onions are being caramelized in the slow cooker tonight. Tomorrow they will be joined by 6 pounds of chopped tomatoes and various other ingredients which will then be cooked for the day to turn into jam.

Some seriously delicious grilled cheese and tomato-onion jam sandwiches are in our future.


"While there are still a lot of open questions, we are aiming for a physical FOSDEM 2023. It's both exciting and scary."

I finished a 5 part series on how to run an e-mail server in 2022 with all the DKIM/SPF/DMARC stuff working. It's not a simple HOWTO series, but it does explain all the moving parts. So if you're interested to learn a bit about modern e-mail - you're welcome! Starts here:

For our second "farmer's market" weekend dinner, I took inspiration from France (I think).

Pan-roasted tilefish, fingerling potato and trumpet mushroom hash, pea-shoot microgreen salad with orange bell pepper. Lovely Pouilly-Fuissé to complete the meal.

One of our favorite Nero d'Avolas too, which was a nice complement to the bold flavors in the pasta sauce.
