Keto Crackers

The Recipe: Keto Sesame and Flax Seed Crackers Yield: 6-7 servings of 8 crackers Total Time: 30 minutes Active: 10 minutes, Passive: 50 minutes Ingredients: • 1 cup almond flour • 1.5 TBS whole flax seeds • 3 TBS sesame seeds (use roasted for a more intense flavor) • ¼ tsp salt • Freshly ground pepper to taste (I like 10-12 grinds from a pepper mill) • ¼ tsp baking soda • 1 large egg, beaten • Cooking spray The Tools: • Mixing bowl • Spatula • Rolling pin • Pizza cutter or knife • Cookie sheet • Silicone baking mat (link to purchase below) • Cooling rack The Prep: 1. Preheat your oven to 350F. 2. In a medium mixing bowl, thoroughly combine all of the dry ingredients. Add the egg and mix with a spatula until the dough forms a solid mass and nothing clings to the side of the bowl. 3. Place the dough on a silicone baking mat, cover with parchment, and roll out into a rectangle approximately 10”x14”. Gently peel back the parchment paper and use your finger to tidy up the edges. Using a knife or pizza cutter, score the dough into squares that are roughly 1.5” being careful not to cut into your silicone mat. I find I get around 50 crackers, give or take. 4. Slide the silicone mat onto a cookie sheet and place it in the oven on the middle rack. 5. After 10 minutes, remove the crackers and lightly spritz them with cooking spray. You may also sprinkle extra salt at this point if you’d like. Rotate the tray 180 degrees and return to the oven for another 10 minutes. 6. Remove the crackers from the oven and allow them to cool for a couple of minutes before transferring them to a wire rack. It’s okay of some of them break along the score marks you made. 7. Allow to cool for at least 30 minutes, then break into individual crackers. The Serve: Serve as you would any cracker: eat them straight up, top them with nut butter, cheese, meats or the keto friendly dip of your choosing.

Entry level cost for CoreOS+Tectonic

CoreOS and Tectonic start their pricing at 10 servers. Managed CoreOS starts at $1000 per month for those first 10 servers and Tectonic is $5000 for the same 10 servers. Annualized that is $85K or at least one employee depending on your market. As a single employee company I'd rather hire the employee. Specially since I only have 3 servers.

The pricing is biased toward the largest servers with the largest capacities; my dual core 32GB i5 IntelNuc can never be mistaken for a 96-CPU dual or quad core DELL

If CoreOS does not figure out a different barrier of entry they are going to follow the Borland path to obscurity.

UPDATE 2017-10-30: With gratitude the CoreOS team has provided updated information on their pricing, however, I stand by my conclusion that the effective cost is lower when you deploy monster machines. The cost per node of my 1 CPU Intel NUC is the same as a 96 CPU server when you get beyond 10 nodes. I'll also reiterate that while my pricing notes are not currently…

Agile is still dead and has been since 1991

[updated 2011.09.30] yet another response to Agile is good.
When you have so much of you career invested in something like Agile, XP etc... it can be hard to see the forest for the trees. I had a consulting job in The Haag many years ago. IBM was the incumbent contractor at the customer site (a bank) but after 5 years on the job they had not written a single line of functioning code. In the office there were two teams of software people... both behind closed doors. The first team was the Data team and the second team was Functional. They rarely spoke and they never shared information. I was there for a week, introduced the client to OO and we had a functioning prototype. Smart people do smart things, You cannot make an underachiever exceptional by using Agile. Either they get "it" or they don't.
I just commented on a blog. I'm sure there is some validity to his post beyond observing that Agile Scrum is broken. It certainly is not what it was originally intended but for…

eGalax touch on default Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS

I have not had success with the touch drivers as yet.  The touch works and evtest also seems to report events, however, I have noticed that the button click is not working and no matter what I do xinput refuses to configure the buttons correctly.  When I downgraded to ubuntu 10.04 LTS everything sort of worked... there must have been something in the kermel as 10.04 was in the 2.6 kernel and 4.04 is in the 3.x branch.

One thing ... all of the documentation pointed to the wrong website or one in Taiwanese. I was finally able to locate the drivers again: (it would have been nice if they provided the install instructions in text rather than PDF)
Please open the document "EETI_eGTouch_Programming_Guide" under the Guide directory, and follow the Guidline to install driver.
