Before I went to the bed I checked on the Brachypelma smithi I keep
and found it already out of its molt but still upside down. The
molting process had started
yesterday in the
About 10 hours later I took another photo of this specimen. It was now
right side up and moved when I opened the plastic container I keep it in.
In the afternoon I decided to determine the sex of this specimen. I
made the molt slightly wet and let it rest for a while; a moist exuviae
is much easier to manipulate. In order to take a good photo of the
spermathecae, if present, I put the exuviae on a piece of paper and
shone a light underneath the paper.
I used the macro lens I bought the 17th of June
2020, but with the LED
ring light off, to take the above photo which is a 1:1 crop with some
post processing in Pixelmator Version 3.9
Classic. The above photo clearly shows
the spermathecae, which means that this specimen is female.
Perl 7.0 is going to be v5.32 but with different, saner, more modern
defaults. You won’t have to enable most of the things you are
already doing because they are enabled for you. The major version
jump sets the boundary between how we have been doing things and
what we can do in the future.
Unknown to many of us, under the hood emacs was designed as a
client/server architecture; which means, Emacs core runs as a daemon
and you attach clients to it. Normally, we run both when we type
emacs, but the execution of both the client and the server is
transparent to the user. Before you attempt to do something fancy,
this architecture is somewhat limited to localhost (1), which means
that you can’t quite “remote into” an emacs running on a different
host. In a world where we have
mosh, and other multiplexers and mobile
connectivity technologies, there may not seem like there’s much room
for running emacs as a server, but we will see some advantages to
