My first Nix derivation

Does precisely nothing, but I’m inexplicably excited 😛

nix-repl> d = derivation { name = "foo"; builder = "${bash}/bin/bash"; args = [ ./builder.sh ]; system = builtins.currentSystem; }

nix-repl> :b d
[1 built, 0.0 MiB DL]

this derivation produced the following outputs:
  out -> /nix/store/l23m6a2fkidklr8plhkb6iwl5x690c7h-foo

Happy Holidays!

Honey Yogurt

I had slowly gotten used to the flavored Chobani yogurts (strawberry, peach ….) but the one I liked most of all was the honey flavored one.

Unfortunately, I didn’t have easy access to this anymore … but I did have plain yogurt around, and I did have honey, and … I mixed them together and it tasted pretty good!

So — I’m clocking in at a few times a day now, gotta slow down, but — this is my new addiction!
