GHOST APPLES 👻🍎

After freezing rain in Michigan, apples that hadn’t been picked got coated in ice. Many fell off the tree. Some had their insides turn to mush as apples have lower freezing points. The mush and skin fell, leaving these “ghost apples.”

If I were the U.S.S. Enterprise I would simply not be the only ship in the sector close enough to respond.

It's an essential property of distributed systems that if you have a local cache, it will be faster. I honestly have no idea why there isn't something like samba or sshfs that doesn't have robust local caching.

The keystone to that is having an active server process that monitors the disk for changes and actively pushes invalidations to the client. (The client should be able to decide whether I'm likely to want the updated file, and prefetch it for me.)

"Ah, you use emacs? Well that can edit on remote systems natively!" True, but it suffers from many of the same speed issues, especially if you use things like Projectile.

Of course, your first reaction might be "well why not just use Samba"? Ahh, yes, I've tried that. The problem is, it's painfully slow to use over the internet. In practical usage, it takes Emacs 30 seconds to open a single file.

At work we have a fairly complex infrastructure set up, and because some of it deals with third-party services we need to have actual, working TLS to develop with. This means that I work on a cloud dev server.

I like to use a local editor, and to make that work smoothly I use Syncthing to keep a local copy of the codebase sync'd up with the server.

FWIW, it just doesn't like being served behind Caddy for some reason. When I point the raw server to the exact same cert files, it's able to use them and serve them on its own port just fine. 🤷‍♀️

Of course, it is http, but it's not web, meaning if you go there it won't show you anything useful in the browser.

Okay, so I think my Syncthing discovery server is *actually* online now! You can connect to it here:
