For some time, I’ve been wanting to set up a backup for my Github repos. Technically they are all backed up by my local copies, which are also backed up when I back up my local computer. However, I wanted something that was sure to have everything from all the repos (all branches, tags, etc) and could be set up and run continuously on a yet-to-be-created backup server. I have create a bash script to do this for me.Continue reading post "Github repo backup script"
- robust forward and backward compatibility like CSS
- simpler, easier to learn format than JS
- little to write or think about for common functionality
- little to send over wire for common functionality
- more performant native implementation possible
- familiar syntax to CSS devs
- simple to connect behavior broadly to chosen selectors
@support, etc to limit which and when behaviors apply
- automatic handling of attaching and removing behaviors when they apply / don’t, including new DOM elements
- maintain separation of concerns that keeping JS and CSS separate provides
Porkbun has moved to Cloudflare for providing their DNS service. That is fine with me after they had an outage earlier in the year: Cloudflare DNS is pretty reliable.Continue reading post "#3891"

My car exhaust was rattling and making noise for quite some time. I finally fixed it, and it sounds much quieter, and even feels better.Continue reading post "#3880"
Some German bot(s) seemed to take interest in one of Cogneato’s sites, Rockin Houston. The aging site is fairly inefficient with a lot of data, and the bot was causing high load on our DB server. I have implemented a PHP blocker for certain IPs, but I wanted something more broadly applicable. I made a rate limiting rule on Cloudflare that should block this type of behavior and prevent it from even hitting our server once the rule triggers.Continue reading post "Annoying bot and Cloudflare free rate limiting"
I would like to see electric cars adopt hybrid energy storage / generation systems. An advanced controller would direct electricity to and from each system based on which is considered best at handling the current situation. If one has failed, it would simply be cut out of usage. It might include batteries, a generator, capacitors, compressed air systems, etc. A system like this would:
- allow for characteristics that any one system doesn’t provide
- provide an alternative / backup for if any one system fails / degrades
- retain the simple, low maintenance drive system that an electric vehicle has
The weather has been really nice lately, highs in the 70s. It was getting pretty chilly for a while and really fall like, but it feels like later summer again, save for all the colorful leaves. I went on a nice walk on the Tree Farm Trail today. Yesterday and Thursday I planted more bulbs, over 100.Continue reading post "#3862"
After hours of playing and learning some details of vimscript, I have improved the autocomplete in vim almost to where I like it. I’ve made it work more like some GUI editors, eg Sublime and Atom, where it pops open automatically as I type and I can tab to apply the selected choice or otherwise type on and ignore it, and otherwise clean up the experience. The main thing I would like to add is fuzzy matching. I’d also like it to match more in-document words and work for more unknown file-types in a generic way.Continue reading post "Vim autocomplete setup"
At some point recently,
git init on my Mac has started to default to the branch name “main”. It did this for a repo I created today, but not for one created August 29th, so maybe Apple made a change in an update sometime between then and now. I haven’t been able to find anything about the change on the web though.
