Rescued film from WWII

Neat. Discussion here. The black tubes he uses to develop the film are new to me – always did it in a darkroom.

Xcode is killing me.

I filed a bug in July 2014 that is caused by Xcode over-parsing output of build tools. This breaks our CI systems and creates load on developers asking for exceptions. The radar is 17839697 if you have access.

If you’d like to repro the bug yourself, try this:

xcodebuild is examining the output of build tools looking for errors. Strings with a distinct format will trigger an error, stopping the build.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install any version of Xcode version 5.1 forward
2. file->new project->OS X->other->external build system
3. take defaults on first screen
4. build tool is “echo”
5. arguments are [:13: 2] (no square brackets, no quotes)
6. build (clover-b)

Expected Results:
7. clean build

Actual Results:
7. build breaks.
8. examine errors: detects :13: 2 as an error, build is broken

Version 5.1.1 (5B1008)

Very annoying.

The $100 .308 Suppressor, that is as good as an $800 one

I’ll probably build one for every rifle I have. Seems faster than adding cans one at a time.

Top post for the year was about Shikkoku

According to WordPress, this was my most popular post of the year. I’m not sure how I feel about that. I still look for him inside the door when I come home.

Wrapping up

Malting floors for barley with an explanation of how the process works

Peat kilns and a small explanation of how peating works

If, in some cataclysm, all of scientific knowledge were to be destroyed, and only one sentence passed on to the next generation of creatures, what statement would contain the most information in the fewest words? I believe it is the atomic hypothesis (or the atomic fact, or whatever you wish to call it) that all things are made of atoms — little particles that move around in perpetual motion, attracting each other when they are a little distance apart, but repelling upon being squeezed into one another. In that one sentence, you will see, there is an enormous amount of information about the world, if just a little imagination and thinking are applied.
