Kingsman: The Golden Circle

Categories: [ TV/Cinema ]



Eggsy is attacked by Charlie, a man wearing a prosthetic arm who had been rejected by Kingsman. Eggsy manages to escape, but the remotely controlled arm remains in his car, hacks the Kingsman system and finds enough information to launch a simultaneous attack on all Kingsman members. Only Eggsy and Merlin survive, the former having dinner in Stockholm with his Swedish princess of a girlfriend's parents and the second not being important enough. Kingsman's Doomsday Protocol leads the pair to a whiskey distillery in Kentucky named Statesman, Kingsman's American counterpart, where they discover that Hart has actually survived his attack but lost his memories. They learn about the Golden Circle, the drug cartel that has destroyed Kingsman: it has laced all its drugs with a virus an is blackmailing the world (through the US president) to legalize all drugs in exchange for an antidote. The president pretends to agree but in reality wants to get rid of the drug problem by letting all drug users die. At the Glastonbury Festival, Eggsy manages to plant a tracker on Charlie's girlfriend, which leads them to a secret base in the Italian mountains where he, Harry (who has recovered his memory) and Statesman agent Whiskey manage to steal a sample of the antidote. While fighting back an attack by the cartel's goons in a cabin in the woods, Whiskey accidentally destroys the antidote. The latter is wounded and Harry has a hunch it was not an accident. A clue found at the factory leads Eggsy, Harry and Merlin to Poppy Land, the cartel's secret lair in the Cambodian jungle. Merlin dies on a land mine while allowing Eggsy and Hart to enter the 1950's-town-main-street-themed compound. They defeat Poppy, free Elton John (who was her prisoner), defeat Whiskey who arrived out of nowhere and wants to kill all drug users since his girlfriend was killed by one and finally get the device that allows to remotely trigger the automatic delivery of the antidote all over the world. In the end, the president is impeached, Statesman buys a distillery in Scotland to help rebuild Kingsman and Eggsy marries princess Tilde.

Blue Moon

Categories: [ Cooking/Ice Cream ]

Adapté de The Enduring Midwestern Mystery of Blue Moon Ice Cream sans le colorant bleu.


  • 2 c. à café de zeste de citron
  • 1/2 c. à café d'extrait de vanille
  • 1/2 c. à café de cardamome moulue
  • 2 feuilles séchées de combava
  • 700 g base de crème glacée


Faire chauffer le lait de la base de crème glacée avec la cardamome et les feuilles de combava pendant 15 min, puis passer dans une passoire pour retirer les feuilles et la cardamome. Préparer la crème avec ce lait, le zeste de citron et l'extrait de vanille. Laisser refroidir et reposer au réfrigérateur pendant une nuit, puis passer à la sorbetière.


Le lait a attaché au fond de la casserole même si je n'ai pas chauffé fort.

Je ne suis pas sûr qu'on sente le combava dans le résultat final.

Categories: [ Cooking/Ice Cream ]

Une glace au caramel.



Préparer le caramel en mettant l'eau et le sucre dans une casserole et en le faisant cuire jusqu'à ce qu'il soit caramélisé, à l'apparition d'une odeur un peu âcre. Ajouter la crème et mélanger, puis ajouter le beurre et mélanger à nouveau. Délayer le caramel avec la base de crème glacée. Laisser reposer au réfrigérateur une nuit, puis passer à la sorbetière.


La recette produit environ 190 g de caramel.

Il y avait trop de préparation, ça ne rentrait pas dans la boite de 700 mL.

La glace reste très molle même après 24 heures au congélateur, probablement dû à la quantité plus importante de sucre.

Gremlins 2

Categories: [ TV/Cinema ]



After Mr. Wing dies, the mogwai Gizmo becomes the guinea pig of scientists at a lab in the Clamp Center, a state-of-the-art highrise building in Manhattan owned by eccentric billionaire Daniel Clamp. At the mercy of the chief researcher Dr. Catheter, Gizmo is rescued by his former owner Billy Peltzer and his fiancée Kate, both of whom work elsewhere in the building. Gizmo accidentally gets wet and spawns four evil mogwais who quickly move through the building until they find the restaurants in the shopping area and eat food after midnight, becoming gremlins. They set off the fire sprinklers, quickly spawning thousand more gremlins, some of them changing shape by drinking genetic serums from the lab; one of them becomes pure electricity but gets trapped in the building's telephone system. Billy manages to convince Clamp of danger and devises a plan: move all the clocks of the building forward, attract all the gremlins in the lobby and fool them into exiting the building while the sun is still up. Clamp exits through his secret escape route and coordinate with the emergency services outside. Alas, a thunderstorm hides the sun just as they were ready to let the gremlins out. Billy then sprays all the gathered gremlins with a fire hose and releases the electric one from the phone system, killing them all (except one that was turned into a female and is enticing the chief of security to marry her).

Ekaterin Vorkosigan and Enrique Borgos visit the Vorkosigan Vashnoi area that was left radioactive at the end of the Cetagandan invasion. Enrique has created insects that eat and concentrate the radioactive elements before leaving them in neat dejection piles, in the hope of decontaminating the area. They notice that many of the bugs in the test area have disappeared, and eventually discover that they were picked by a young boy who lives nearby with his adoptive mother, Ma Roga, and two other children. Ma Roga claims she had been living hear ever since Miles' grandfather Count Piotr allowed her to do so instead of executing her with the bandit gang with which she was living thirty years earlier. Since then she has taken care of the unwanted, mutant children who were abandoned in the contaminated zone by their backcountry parents. After a long discussion and a failed attempt by Ma Roga to kill her children and herself rather than having to leave her home, they are all taken to the hospital in Hassadar for treatment. While the children can be integrated in the modern Barrayaran society, Miles and Ekaterin wonder what to do with Ma Roga.

The Illusionist

Categories: [ TV/Cinema ]



As a teenager, Eduard, son of a cabinet maker, fell in love with Sophie. As she was of noble birth, they were forcibly separated soon after Eduard gave Sophie a locket with his picture. Fifteen years later in 1889, Eduard comes to Vienna after having traveled the world and becomes famous as an illusionist named Eisenheim. He is noticed by Crown Prince Leopold who attends a performance and volunteers his fiancée Sophie for a trick. Eisenheim recognizes Sophie, and after a private performance where he humiliates the prince, they become lovers. Sophie reveals Leopold's plan to marry her soon, in order to get support from the Hungarian side of the empire during his future attempt at overthrowing his father. When Chief Inspector Uhl tells the prince of Sophie's relationship with Eisenheim, Leopold shuts down the theatre where he is performing. The two lovers then plan to flee by train, but on the evening before, a drunk Leopold mortally wounds Sophie as she flees on horse, and her body is found the next day by Eisenheim and a party of policemen. Eisenheim then buys a small theatre and starts a new show where he sits alone on the stage and makes talking images of dead people appear. He soon attracts a loud crowd of people who hope to speak with lost loved ones, and when he makes Sophie appear and the audience starts asking whether she was killed by Leopold, the latter demands that Uhl arrests Eisenheim for necromancy. From the police headquarters, the illusionist tells his assembled followers that it is all an illusion, and Uhl releases him. During the next performance, Sophie's image appears again and says that someone in the audience is her murderer. A bunch of policemen attempts to arrest him on stage, but this time Eisenheim himself is an illusion.

The Post

Categories: [ TV/Cinema ]



In 1971, the Washington Post struggles financially and her owner Kay Graham decides that the company needs to become publicly traded. At the same time, the New York Times publishes an article based on a leaked military report showing that the Vietnam war is not going well, and that the US never had any hope of winning it. An injunction from the Department on Justice forbids the Times to publish any more articles based on those documents, but a few journalists from the Post manage to identify the leak and to acquire a copy of the secret report. Kay asserts her position as owner and publisher of the Post and decides to publish despite the injunction that arguably also applies to the Post, rebelling against Nixon's attempt to restrain the freedom of the Press. She of course has to take this decision just in the critical period during which the banks investing through the IPO have a right to cancel their transactions. The Post and the Time go to court shortly after and eventually all the way up to the Supreme Court, which confirms the freedom of the press.

Categories: [ Cooking/Ice Cream ]

La recette de base revient à 2,43 € pour 500 g. En comptant l'électricité, on ajoute moins de 0,01 €.

Pour une glace à la vanille, il faut ajouter 0,30 € d'extrait de vanille, ce qui amène le prix à 2,73 € pour 500 g. Pour comparaison, la glace à la vanille de 3 Kaveria coûte normalement 6,95 € pour 400 g (pot de 500 mL), soit 8,69 € pour 500 g. Ce qui veut dire que le prix de la sorbetière (environ 390 €) serait amorti après 66 utilisations, soit un peu plus d'un an d'utilisation.

Les prix de revient pour les autres glaces, par 500 g, sont :

La mort immortelle

Translation: [ Google | Babelfish ]

Categories: [ Books ]

ISBN: 9782330143190

© Amazon.fr

Yun Tianming est sur le point de mourir d'un cancer. Une loi récemment votée lui permet de procéder à un suicide assisté. Avant l'échéance, il décide d'offrir anonymement le titre de propriété d'une étoile à Cheng Xin, qu'il avait connue lorsqu'ils étaient étudiants. Cette dernière travaille pour l'Agence de Renseignement Planétaire qui cherche un moyen d'envoyer une sonde à la rencontre d'une seconde flotte trisolarienne qui se déplace à la vitesse de la lumière et atteindra la Terre d'ici quatre ans. Propulsée par une voile solaire accélérée par une série d'explosions nucléaires, elle ne pourra emporter que le cerveau cryogénisé d'un humain, celui de Yun Tianming. La sonde dévie cependant de sa trajectoire et est perdue. Cheng Xin est alors choisie pour remplacer Luo Ji, mais dès la passation de pouvoir, les trisolariens menacent à nouveau la Terre et Cheng Xin refuse de révéler l'existence du système solaire aux civilisations hostiles de l'univers. Les trisolariens exigent lors que tous les humains soient déportés en Australie et que le reste de la surface soit libérée pour leur faire place. Pendant ce temps aux confins du système solaire, le vaisseau Gravité poursuit l'Espace Bleu, dernier survivant de la flotte détruite plus tôt par la sonde trisolarienne. Apprenant ce qui arrive sur Terre, les deux équipages s'allient et déclenchent le dernier émetteur existant, à bord du Gravité, révélant ainsi la position du système solaire. Le trisolariens se détournent une fois de plus de la Terre et les humains quittent l'Australie. Les humains cherchent alors une solution pour se protéger d'une inéluctable destruction préventive de la Terre. Avant de couper tout contact, les trisolariens organisent une téléconférence entre Cheng Xin et Yun Tianming, qui a été secouru et dont le corps a été reconstitué. Ils ont interdiction formelle de discuter de comment sauver la Terre, mais Yun Tianming, sous couvert de raconter des contes à Cheng Xin, leur fournit des indices sur comment procéder. Après avoir déchiffré les énigmes des contes, les humains envisagent trois solutions : migrer vers des stations spatiales cachées derrière Jupiter et qui devraient survivre à l'explosion du Soleil, s'enfuir à bord de vaisseaux atteignant la vitesse de la lumière grâce à la propulsion par courbure de l'espace-temps, ou ralentir la vitesse de la lumière autour du système solaire afin de rester éternellement prisonniers d'une sorte de trou noir et donc de se montrer inoffensif. Après un sommeil cryogénique, Cheng Xin découvre que c'est la première solution qui est retenue, mais au contraire de ce qui avait été observé auparavant, l'attaque ne vient pas sous la forme d'une explosion du Soleil mais d'une réduction progressive de l'espace de trois dimensions à deux, immobilisant la matière et les êtres vivants pour l'éternité. Seuls Cheng Xin et son amie AA s'échappent grâce à un prototype de vaisseau capable de voyager à la vitesse de la lumière. Elles passent par Pluton où des échantillons des cultures humaines sont stockées et où elles rencontrent Luo Ji qui en est le dernier gardien, puis partent vers l'étoile de Cheng Xin où Yun Tianming à laisser entendre qu'ils se reverraient. Elles y rencontrent Guan Yifan, le dernier survivant du Gravité et de l'Espace Bleu, qui l'ont colonisée quelques siècles plus tôt. Cheng Xin et Guan Yifan partent visiter la seconde planète de l'étoile, mais à leur retour ils sont prisonniers d'une trainée de propulsion par courbure où la vitesse de la lumière est ralentie. Ils passent douze jours à attendre que l'ordinateur neuronal de secours démarre pour enfin pouvoir atterrir, mais dix-neuf millions d'années ont passé sur la planète. Ils trouvent le dernier cadeau de Yun Tianming, un univers de poche d'un kilomètre cube où ils peuvent vivre tandis que l'univers extérieur passe en deux dimensions et ne reboote en un nouvel univers multidimensionnel. Guan Yifan comprend cependant que la création d'un grand nombre d'univers de poche, en empruntant de la masse à l'univers, pourrait empêcher ce processus, ce qu'un message venu du grand univers et à destination de tous les univers de poche confirme. Cheng Xin et Guan Yifan décident alors de rendre la masse, ne laissant qu'un tout petit échantillon d'écosystème terrestre, et de retourner finir leur vie dans une partie encore hospitalière du grand univers.

Cocotella 4

Translation: [ Google | Babelfish ]

Categories: [ Cooking/Ice Cream ]

Nouvelle variante de cocotella pour essayer de me débarasser des cristaux de glace. Celle-ci contient du lait en poudre et du sirop de glucose.


  • 90 g sucre
  • 37 g lait en poudre
  • 37 g sirop de glucose
  • 5 g glucose
  • 2 œufs (100 g)
  • 415 g lait de coco (400 mL)


Mélanger les ingrédients secs. Battre un peu les œufs dans une casserole, ajoute les ingrédients secs et fouetter. Ajouter le sirop de glucose et fouetter encore. Ajouter le lait de coco, mélanger. Faire chauffer en remuant continuellement jusqu'à atteindre 80 °C. Laisse refroidire et reposer 24h au réfrigérateur. Passer à la sorbetière.


On ne sent plus les critaux de glace, mission accomplie.

Les proportions sont calculées avec une estimation erronée de la masse du lait de coco (j'avais estimé 430 g au lieu de 415 g). La version corrigée contient 83 g de sucre, 50 g de lait en poudre et sirop de glucose et 3 g de glucose. Je suis étonné que l'optimiseur change autant les proportions (-9 % de sucre, +35 % lait en poudre et sirop de glucose) avec une différence de seulement 4 % dans la quantité de lait de coco. Il a peut-être trouvé un autre optimum local ?

Full-Text Search in Database For Mastodon

Categories: [ IT ]

I run my own instance of Mastodon on a server with little memory, i.e. not enough to be able to run ElasticSearch in addition to Mastodon. This means that I cannot do a full-text search on my toots (which would have come handy from time to time).

As an alternative solution, I have implemented a full-text search on database. It is most probably not suitable to use on a large instance, as the implementation uses an SQL query with multiple LIKE conditions ORed together. That's not the most efficient way of querying a database, but for a small enough number of statuses (40k at the moment), it's probably good enough.

This feature is (and will probably forever remain) experimental, but if you want to give it a try, and assuming that you have installed Mastodon from Git like me in /home/mastodon/live and run v4.1.0, here's how to do it.

As user mastodon, run:
$ cd /home/mastodon/live
$ git remote add db_search https://weber.fi.eu.org/software/mastodon
$ git fetch db_search
$ git checkout v4.1.0+db_search.1
$ echo "FULL_TEXT_DB_SEARCH=true" >> .env.production
Then restart the mastodon-web service by running as root:
systemctl restart mastodon-web.service

Reload the mastodon Web UI in your web browser. When you click on the search box, you should now see a message like “Simple text returns posts you have written…” and searching with words you know you have written should display matching toots.

EDIT: I expanded the search to also consider the descriptions of media attachments. The updated version is available as tag v4.1.0+db_search.1.

La forêt sombre

Translation: [ Google | Babelfish ]

Categories: [ Books ]

ISBN: 9782330125110

© Amazon.fr

Face à l'invasion prochaine de la Terre par les Trisolariens, les Nations Unies lancent le programme Colmateur en sélectionnant quatre personnes chargées de concevoir en secret et mettre en œuvre un plan pour contrer l'attaque. La difficulté réside dans le fait que les Trisolariens peuvent épier toutes les conversations, les Colmateurs doivent donc mettre leur plan en œuvre sans qu'il soit possible d'en deviner la teneur. Les trois premiers plans sont éventés par des agents de l'Organisation Terre-Trisolaris, seul celui du Dr. Luo Ji résiste. Ce dernier semble ne pas travailler du tout et plutôt prendre du bon temps grâce aux ressources immenses mises à sa disposition. Au bout de 20 ans, il envoie une sous forme de message radio amplifié par le soleil une «  malédiction  » vers une étoile, et l'ONU décide de le mettre en hibernation pour 200 ans en guise de punition. À son réveil, le monde a bien changé, ayant traversé une crise de désespoir puis a atteint un point où l'humanité est convaincue de triompher des Trisolariens. Une immense flotte spatiale a été construite et s'est finalement constituée en état indépendant. L'observation de la flotte trisolarienne a révélé qu'un petit objet arrive en éclaireur. Ce dernier se révèle être indestructible et détruit la majeure partie de la flotte (quelques vaisseaux parviennent à s'échapper vers une étoile proche dans l'espoir de préserver un échantillon de l'humanité), et les terriens sombrent dans la terreur et la panique. La sonde ne détruit cependant pas la Terre et se contente d'empêcher la Terre d'utiliser le soleil comme amplificateur pour envoyer des messages vers le cosmos. Tous se tournent alors vers Luo Ji, lui attribuant tous les pouvoirs et vertus, mais déchantent rapidement lorsque ce dernier sombre dans l'alcoolisme et que son nouveau plan semble dérisoire. Luo Ji révèle sa théorie selon la quelle de nombreuses civilisations habitent le cosmos, mais restent silencieuses de peur d'être attaquées, à moins de pouvoir attaquer les premières. Sa «  malédiction  » consistait à rendre une étoile inhabitée soudainement visible, ce qui a pour effet de motiver au moins une civilisation à préventivement détruire cette étoile et ainsi démontrer la théorie. La sonde des Trisolariens empêche les Terriens de menacer ainsi leur planète. Rejeté de tous, Luo Ji annonce alors aux espions trisolariens que son plan apparemment dérisoire consiste à utiliser des bombes thermonucléaires en orbite autour du soleil non pas pour créer un nuage de poussière destiné à pouvoir observer l'approche de leur flotte, mais de transmettre par un autre moyen la position de leur planète aux civilisations hostiles du cosmos ; la non-exécution du plan est contrôlée par le fait que Luo Ji continue à vivre. Les Trisolariens acceptent alors de dévier leur flotte et de coopérer avec les humains plutôt que de les exterminer.

Voilà les proportions que j'utilise pour la base de ma crème glacée. Le but est d'utiliser un œuf entier, donc quelle que soit la quantité de préparation, le nombre d'œufs reste un nombre entier.

Pour 500 g

  • 42 g sucre
  • 9 g glucose
  • 42 g lait en poudre
  • 42 g sirop de glucose
  • 2 œufs (100 g)
  • 265 g lait entier

Pour 600 g

  • 51 g sucre
  • 10 g glucose
  • 51 g lait en poudre
  • 51 g sirop de glucose
  • 2 œufs (100 g)
  • 337 g lait entier

Pour 700 g

  • 59 g sucre
  • 10 g glucose
  • 59 g lait en poudre
  • 59 g sirop de glucose
  • 2 œufs (100 g)
  • 413 g lait entier


Mélanger les ingrédients secs et les ajouter aux œufs légèrement battus. Fouetter, ajouter le sirop de glucose et mélanger. Ajouter le lait et mélanger, puis chauffer tout en remuant continuellement jusqu'à ce que la température atteigne 80 °C.

Chocolat 4

Translation: [ Google | Babelfish ]

Categories: [ Cooking/Ice Cream ]

Une variante de la précédente glace au chocolat produisant 700 g de préparation au lieu des 500 g habituels et contenant proportionnellement moins d'œuf.


  • 115 g sucre
  • 34 g lait en poudre
  • 40 g cacao (Barry Extra Brut)
  • 1 œuf
  • 1/4 c. à café extrait de vanille
  • 382 g lait entier
  • 80 g chocolat noir (72% de cacao)


Dans un bol, mélanger le sucre, le lait en poudre et le cacao. Dans une casserole, mettre l'œuf et le foutter un peu avant d'ajouter le mélange de sucre, 50 g de lait et de fouetter. Ajouter l'extrait de vanille puis le reste du lait, foutter pour mélanger, puis chauffer tout en remuant continuellement. Arrêter lorsque la température atteint 80 °C. Faire fondre le chocolat (2 minutes et demi au micro-ondes) puis le délayer avec la préparation. Laisser refroidir 24h au réfrigérateur. Passer à la sorbetière.


Il y a toujours un petit goût que je n'aime pas, je suppose dû au chocolat. La consistance me plait beaucoup, mais je ne sais pas ce qui a changé pour arriver à ce résultat. Un peu plus de sucre, peut-être ?

Pour référence :

  • Lipides : 8,0 % (dont saturés : 4,5 %)
  • Glucides : 26,8 % (dont sucres : 25,5 %)
  • Protéines : 6,7 %
  • Sel : 0,17 %

The Abyss

Categories: [ TV/Cinema ]



When a US submarine sinks near the Cayman Trough after an encounter with an unidentified entity, the nearby underwater drilling platform Deep Core is sent to attempt a rescue, accompanied with a SEAL team. They do not find any survivor, but one of the civilians sees a non-terrestrial entity. Believing it to be a Soviet submarine, the SEALs take the platform's largest submarine for secretly recovering one of the submarine's nuclear warhead, preventing the platform's crew from disconnecting its tether to their surface base, the Explore, before the coming storm rips it off. The tether's reel is ripped off the Explorer and drags Deep Core to the edge of the trench, partially flooding the platform and killing several people. While waiting, the crew sees another manifestation of the NTI as a pseudopod that also takes a look at the nuclear warhead. This prompts the SEAL's leader, suffering from paranoia due to high-pressure nervous syndrome, to use one of the platform's ROV to deliver the warhead to the NTI inhabiting the trench. A battle and an underwater chase ensues in which the SEAL is killed. The chief of the platform, Bud, then decides to use a diving suit equipped with a liquid-breathing apparatus brought by the SEALs to dive into the trench and disarm the warhead. He has do dive deeper than planned and has not oxygen left for the return trip. Waiting to die, he is rescued by the NTI who show him television images of humans killing each other in wars, as well as gigantic tsunami, created by the NTI, threatening all the coasts of the world. They however stop the waves as Bud has shown, by risking his life to save the NTIs, that they are also capable of compassion. The NTI's underwater mothership, carrying Bud, then rises to the surface, lifting Deep Core and saving the crew's lives (magically removing the need for decompression).
