The Northern Brewer Homebrew Forum :: View topic - The Great Bavarian Weissbier Project of 2007
Amazing collaboration of folks figuring out how to brew an authentic Bavarian Weissbier. If I didn't have a very vivid memory of this thread I would have never found it. Northern Brewer changed their forum software and threw all this work by their community away.

Technovelty - Zuul and Ansible in OpenStack CI
It is an interesting point that Jenkins, especially in OpenStack's CI setup, is little more than a permanent SSH agent and script runner. Using zuul in CI (like we do at the foundation) means that Jenkins is very dumb. Getting rid of it entirely may be throwing out the baby with the bathwater -- sure ansible can run tasks and (evidently) you can stream them in realtime as they happen, but I think visibility is lessened. The flip side of this is that Jenkins has a horrible UI, perhaps particularly when it comes to visibility. There is, however, something to be said for robust tested solutions.

I'm ambivalent about this idea is what I'm saying.

More shell, less egg - All this
That great story where Donald Knuth creates a literate Pascal program to count the frequency of words in a text file, McIlroy does the same thing in a few lines of shell. I have no idea if you can learn anything from this, but it sure is interesting.

Taking Interior HDR Vertorama Shots - HDR Cookbook by farbspiel

Equirectangular Panorama with AutoPano Giga | Shutter Experiments
A short tutorial on creating 360° panoramas using a DSLR hand held. I have been interested in getting something like a Sigma 8mm precisely for its 180° FoV; however, this tutorial makes it seem like with a little extra work I could get similar results without another lens, which is appealing to me.

Photo Funnel: Drag-and-Drop Photo Copying Tool For Linux – Medium
Bash script for drag and drop upload of photos on Linux. Uses YAD and exiftool to import a whole bunch of photos. Now that rapid photo downloader has started to be unusable for me, I am just using a dumb bash script. This seems like a different paradigm than what I'm looking for, but I'd like to keep it around for ideas.

How to Write a Git Commit Message
Great article with git commit message tips:

1. Separate subject from body with a blank line
2. Limit the subject line to 50 characters
3. Capitalize the subject line
4. Do not end the subject line with a period
5. Use the imperative mood in the subject line
6. Wrap the body at 72 characters
7. Use the body to explain what and why vs. how

Most of this summarizes to: use the imperative in the subject line, use vim to make sure of formatting, and use the body to explain WHY!!!! So much explain Why.
