Installing Arch on Older Hardware

First post of the New Year. Still got it in January. I moved States, bought a house, got a dog. So blogging has not been at the top of the list. Now that I emptied my storage unit, I found my old buddy Tinman. He's a Core i7 ‘server’ with two GTX 480's and 2TB of space. He's old, but sturdy. He deserves a place of glory. And and Arch installation.

Engagement Hike

I proposed to my wife in Kauai at the Waimea Canyon Lookout. I couldn't have picked a better spot. Actually, I did. When we did the hike I picked the first spot you see here. You can see in the Google Earth picture the more teal trace as it curve along the rim. These two pictures are of that first spot. The ‘real’ spot. However, in the following two, you can see the ‘real real’ spot.

Extending GPG Expiry

If you followed my last article on this subject, you have a GPG setup without the master private key on your computer. You also put an expiration date on that key. When your key expires, it can no longer be used to encrypt data for you. It can however still decrypt messages from prior to the expiry date. This does not help in the situation where your private key is compromised.

Jalapeño Poppers

Ash has been wanting these for 2 months. I couldn't say no when we were going to be using the Traeger anyways. Ingredient Quantity Jalapeños 18 Medium Thin-Cut Bacon 1 Pack Cream Cheese 8-10 Oz (room temperature) Colby Jack 4 Oz Chili Powder 1 tsp Granulated Garlic 1 tsp Salt 1 tsp Scallions 2 minced Procedure Split the jalapeños lengthwise.


What's better than a BBQ on a National Holiday? I used the Traeger for some St. Louis cut ribs. This recipe was crazy simple. Like shamefully simple. Mostly I just want to get in the habit of updating my blog, so this is what you get. Ingredient Quantity St. Louis Ribs 2 Racks Favorite Rub Lots Texas Blend Traeger Pellets At least 2 hoppers worth Oh yeah, you'll need a Traeger too.

Questions in Arch

I notice myself asking questions about common tasks when I come back to Arch after a long time. I think that makes for a good article as it is possible others have these questions. I'm running out of space and that's stupid. Not a question, but I've felt that exact sentiment. In Arch, this is very likely the Pacman cache going crazy. Everytime you upgrade a package in Pacman, it keeps the previous version.

Bone Broth

I don't really like the distinction between ‘bone broth’ and ‘stock’ because they're the same thing if done right. The distinction is useful because the product that is called stock in a grocery store is very different. Useful, but different. Bone broth is gelatinous at fridge temperature. This is because you cook down the bones and connective tissue over a long period of time. Collagen is converted to gelatin and you get meat/bone jello.

JetBrains and GPG

I encountered some issues running WebStorm and I think I finally solved them. This was an annoying bug that was a mix of WebStorm and OSX behavior that I didn't ask for. TODO: Pinentry Image This is the prompt that you get on OSX running Pinentry. I was getting this randomly all throughout the day just running JetBrains products. That's really annoying. You can see that WebStorm is trying to run git-upload-pack when I get the Pinentry prompt, and that is what triggered it.
