I was looking on the map for something to do and I found a fucking Golden Spiral in the middle of the city. Done deal. Let’s walk there. Pilot Butte I like the look of the track generated for walking up Pilot Butte. It’s an old Cinder Cone and it is like a perfect pimple.
This is just a classic. I would hesitate to call this a recipe and really more of a ‘method’.

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.
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.
This is Convict Lake. I grew coming here to hike and camp. My two fondest birthday celebrations have been at this lake. The first with my parents for my 12th birthday. The second with my parents and now wife for my 35th birthday.
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.

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.
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.
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.
