Inspired by the latest episode of
rsync to save a copy of a couple of important sites locally, and in the way of such things the commands are complex with many moving parts. Until now, I've kept them in a text file, and copied and pasted when I wanted to run them. This time, I copied and pasted into
.bash_profile. Yay me! Time and keystrokes saved. Yay Automators!
Next I really want to learn how to tell
bash to send me an email with the results of a command it has carried out.

In essence, I see myself as a translator. I speak Science, and I speak English, and I work hard to make the two understand one another. Mostly, I like to help people tell their stories. I'm a biologist by training and by inclination, and my main joy is applying that to food and the agriculture and industries that supply it.
I also have side interests in economics and many other things.
