q.pfiffer.org - MulletCache

Malevolent Cartography Write C Drink your coffee black Sleep on the floor github.com/qpfiffer qpfiffer+qpweb@gmail.com All Posts Nav 2020-04-03 by Quinlan Pfiffer software Herein a novel idea for multi-nodal caching is proposed. The main problem solved by this idea is thus: Home storage is cheap, cloud storage is expensive. The project's name is MulletCache. MulletCache consist of at least one remote node (the business node) and one local node (the party node). The party node has a maximum cache size allowance, which should be roughly the size of your on-disk availability. The business node has no cache size, it just serves any file requested from it.

q.pfiffer.org - Building a Personal Gentoo Overlay

Malevolent Cartography Write C Drink your coffee black Sleep on the floor github.com/qpfiffer qpfiffer+qpweb@gmail.com All Posts Nav 2020-04-23 by Quinlan Pfiffer software how-to I've been running Gentoo again recently, and one of the things I wanted to try out was building a personal overlay. The information here is cobbled together from things I learned personally, looking at the gentoo developer overlays , and just trying stuff until it worked. Note: In this document my repo name will be qpfiffer . Start a git repository somewhere on your machine, and add, at least, these files: . ├── LICENSE ├── metadata │   └── layout.conf ├── profiles │   └── repo_name layout.conf is pretty simple: masters = gentoo thing-manifests = true And profiles/repo_name looks like this (for me): qpfiffer That's really it. Now you can push it up to some git hosting provider ....

q.pfiffer.org - A Random Python Timezone Bug

Malevolent Cartography Write C Drink your coffee black Sleep on the floor github.com/qpfiffer qpfiffer@gmail.com +1(503) 985-6583 All Posts Nav 2020-03-12 by Quinlan Pfiffer So this one is another interesting Python Timezone thing. It feels like every time I do something with timezones in Python, I think I've got them figured out and I clearly don't. Theres always another thing. This one was interesting though and took a while to figure out. The issue turned out to be not as straight-forward as I thought it would have been. Imagine something like this: from datetime import datetime, timezone import pytz TIMEZONE = "US/Eastern" tz = pytz.timezone(TIMEZONE) def utc_now(): return datetime.now(timezone.utc) def tz_now(): return convert_to_local(get_utc_now()) def convert_to_local(any_time): return any_time.astimezone(tz) def convert_to_utc(any_time): return any_...

Malevolent Cartography - 2019 In Reivew

Malevolent Cartography <span id="subtitle">You can't kill me.</span> Resume Archive Contact 2019 In Reivew January 3, 2020 by Quinlan Pfiffer “Always between life and death” - Zybin Where do I even start? I’m tired just thinking about it. One big thing I’ve started doing is that on every trip we go on now, I started a “Lessson for X 20YY”, and just write down everything I learned, experienced or want to look up. I end up with great quotes, bookes to read, lessons that are invaluable, etc. They all go in one place and they’re really easy to look back on. My guitar playing is getting there. It’s such a fun, productive activity. A little bit every day with no plan is more than enough to really make me feel like I’m investing in it. Started logging all/most of my transactions. I started out using an app on our trip, which carried over to home life, whic...

Malevolent Cartography - Oregon Emerald Outback 2019

Malevolent Cartography <span id="subtitle">You can't kill me.</span> Resume Archive Contact Oregon Emerald Outback 2019 May 12, 2019 by Quinlan Pfiffer On May 3rd 2019 I left Portland with a bunch of dudes determined to finish the Oregon Emerald Outback , a 570 mile race with 55,000 or so feet of climbing. We didn’t make it to the finish line, in fact we didn’t even really come close, but we rode hard and suffered in garbage bags for eight days and had a blast. Heres the route we ended up taking: Day zero was pretty much what you’d expect, a lot of frantic getting used to the bikes and realizing we were strapped in for the long haul with no quick way out. We met up at Dragonfly Coffee and hung out for probably way too long before actually leaving. None of us were really in a hurry to do a fully loaded century up to Astoria, along highway 30. We eve...
