Piping output to files in Bash

There is a recent commit in GoHugo’s repository that removes several CLI parameters I was using in my projects. Those flags were --debug, --log, --logFile and --verboseLog. While I am not discussing this decision (I don’t like it, but I understand that keeping these things in the software needs someone able to keep them up to date and conclusive and the developer of the software seems to be unable to) I am still interested in the idea of having a file with all output of my Hugo runs available so I can parse through it and see what is going on while building the site.

Notes from the Laboratory: April 2022

I am trying this new “thing” of “reporting” what I was up to in a certain time period this year, and monthly reviews just sound like something normal people would do. So bear with me while I am typing up this report.

A pork pie Alexa

Shouting Alexa at a Pork Pie

This really important video about Alexa is a great example of how to use the Alexa API to create a skill. Not really, but watch it until the end to understand ;) From the videos description: Some interpreted it as a commentary on our over-reliance on consumerism, or of the unrealistic demands we make of material possessions.

Music to program to (Part 4)

Ólafur Arnalds remix of Rammstein’s “Zeit” is something perfect.

His own notes about this from Facebook:

When I was 15 years old Rammstein came to Reykjavík. This was going to be one of the biggest shows in Icelandic history. Me and my friends went and headbanged our teenage hearts out. 20 years later I was asked to rework their latest single.

Great to see those two creative universes coming together.

This is "Zeit" by Rammstein .

Rammstein is a German Neue Deutsche Härte band formed in Berlin in 1994.
