Enter the Matrix

I used to be a big proponent of xmpp. However, over the years my enthusiasm has waned for it. I'm not the only one. Essentially, these days if your chat service is not done over HTTP(s), and if it doesn't have persistence, your chat service is now legacy. Yes, I still enjoy IRC, and I think it's great for ephemeral communications. But in this multi-device, mobile world, it's hard to use IRC as a daily driver for my friends and coworkers.

Everday Superadmin

Every morning I wake up bleary eyed
Another victim of aggressive deadlines
I don't think this is supportable
It's not good at all

All about git pull

All about git pull

Because you know
I'm all about git pull
'bout git pull, no copies
I'm all about git pull
'bout git pull, no copies
I'm all about git pull

Radio Musings

Completely unrelated to the post below, I discovered that some has forked a copy of my website on github. I've actually migrated from the static site to Mezzanine, but the repo is still in place. I was very surprised someone has forked it. I checked the user out and he recently forked a large number of repositories, all related to docker or coreos type things. It appears that "builtdock" is putting together some sort of platform as a service offering. I wonder if forking my site was an accident, or if they are planning to use it as a base of making their own static site.

Python Modules and Single App OS

Emacs standing alone on a Linux Kernel. I'm not an emacs user, but I thought this was really fascinating. Basically, the author took the linux kernel, a statically compiled copy of emacs, the mount command, and that's it. You could dd that to a hard drive and boot into only emacs. This gets me thinking about what I'm going to call SAOS - Single Application OS. Sort of like the python on a chip scene.
