I'm part owner and roaster at a little coffee company in Wisconsin. Author of Typica, a popular free program used to capture and work with coffee roasting production records that's used at roasting companies all over the world. Volunteer on the Roasters Guild education committee. Available for paid coffee consulting, training, open source software development. Living with a cat who broke into my house and decided to stay. Likes: cute, travel, food. Dislikes: blinking lights.
Was up late last night working on some code. The new batch window in Typica 2 looks quite a bit different from the Typica 1 version now. Decided to ditch the table view for green coffees which lets me make some operations a little more obvious and makes logical space for new features. Weights are also auto-filled which should help places that standardize batch sizes or blend before roasting.
Fixed 2 bugs. One was a > that should have been a >= while the other was not updating a value on one very specific code path which was solved by lifting it out of a loop and unconditionally doing the right thing, which in most cases will also be a tiny bit more efficient (where it isn't is already the fastest path so I'm not going to worry about a couple extra instructions to calculate a 0).
Finished up the main stuff for profile translation in Typica 2. There are still a couple things that need testing, but what has been tested is working. I took a slightly different approach compared with Typica 1 which makes some ideas that I've had around this feature easier to put in later. Also, it's now animated (easy to turn off if you want the old instant snap behavior, but I think a quick animation makes it more obvious what's going on).
Something I noticed when using slow phone tethered Internet: lots of web sites are completely unusable at <100kbps. My sites still work just fine. I think it's because I remember 2400 baud dial up service and try to be a little conservative and not bloat things with stuff like every tracker known to marketing.
🎨 A painting/Fediverse experimentation:
With percentages of Red, Green and Blue, you can obtain a precise RGB color definition.
So, please vote for one or more color channel and with the mix of all the votes, I'll challenge myself to paint a fantasy landscape, using the result as the dominant color.
(PS: I'm doing full time inking/penciling on episode 37 and a bit of colored art cool-down would be great! Also I need a bit of 'Fedifun' this week. Thanks for your votes and boosts! )
