In-reply-to » Thanks again @movq !! I have figured things out and set up Jenny and Vim completion following your blog post! Cheers!

Welcome @aelaraji@aelaraji.com!

What the heck is going on with the encoding here?! The feed’s Content-Type header does not include any charset, but I’m still relying on the official twtxt client to fetch and parse feeds. Haven’t noticed this with any other feeds. Where in the chain is this messed up? :-? Seems like the “space” is the Unicode line separator U+2028, that we use for newlines.

Maybe WTF-8 encoding!?

In-reply-to » @movq if you are referring to Adobe (I had to go check Johan’s raw feed), I don’t think many other do digital signatures, and deal with fill-in forms. I have a Windows VDI at work for two exclusive purposes: Outlook, and Adobe Acrobat. LOL.

I got an e-mail today about my Linux notebook reaching end of support, yada yada yada. It mentioned that with the new stuff Okular will be able to sign PDFs. Never ever had to use that, but maybe some Linux user finds this information useful.

In-reply-to » Low-quality smartphone shots from today’s walk:

@movq@www.uninformativ.de Definitely better for them, yeah. :-)

Ah, interesting. Ui, that can hold some water. Certainly looks like a water level gauge to me. Maybe a precaution for a hundred-year flood or something like that. Or is there a dam nearby? Could be a facility to reduce damage in case it breaks.

I took advantage of the last sunny, but also 25°C hot day and hiked in the woods. It was so much more pleasant in the forest than out in the sun. The wind could have been a long stronger with that heat. I was completely soaked.

At one point I thought I better grab my camera out of my backpack, so whenever something comes up, I’m ready. But I was too lazy and thought, well, I just wait until there is a nice subject and keep going instead. No joke, ten meters further I came across two squirrels. A red and a brown one, sitting on a tree at just one and three meters height two meters away from me. If I only had unpacked my bloody cam a few seconds ago! I just watched them sit on the tree and then tried to slowly strip my backpack and grad the cam. It was still booting up when they decided it was enough sitting around and climbed higher. What a silly move on my end, damn.

I tried to improvise some Lyse Street View, but felt really uncomfortable to photograph other people’s houses. Somehow my cam produced sooo many blurred shots on the way up still away from the village, it’s unbelievable. I scrapped nearly the entire project. Only very few survived. There were heaps of people on the mountain summit, so I quickly left again.

Looking forward to next week’s rain and temperature drop to 16°C or even 8°C.

In-reply-to » My printer will turn 18 years in a couple of months and will thus be allowed to drive a car.

@movq@www.uninformativ.de Even just consumer grade. Wow! I also only rarely print anything and I always got third-party toners, never was disappointed with them. Last year I noticed that we have an ink and toner shop in town and bought there. That actually exist over two decades now, but looks extremely inconspicuous.

@movq@www.uninformativ.de Oh wow, how cool is that?! :-) Ducks over here are quite shy, unfortunately. In Ludwigsburg on the other hand they are very habituated to humans. I was very surprised to see that when visiting a mate. There were a bunch of them laying on the stairs and I tried to keep my distance to not scare them off. Didn’t dare to get closer than maybe five meters or so and was super happy that they stayed. That has always been impossible over here. After we proceeded, some tourists came by and stood a meter next to them or so. That was crazy for me to see. :-)

Yeah, walking next to a highway is torture. I try to avoid it as much as possible.

Nice! The third photo looks like a Kneipp basin. What’s that round tunnel? I love those moss-covered rocks, they just look so beautiful.

In-reply-to » After a bug in the Open Watcom OS/2 resource compiler has been fixed (imagine that – they still fix bugs related to OS/2! 🤯💚), I was able to make some more progress with the OS/2 GUI version of my little disk usage tool. It now has a menu bar and a dialog to open another directory:

@movq@www.uninformativ.de @prologic The several megabytes of Go binaries always feel so wrong. Hello world is 1.8 MiB, with -ldflags '-w' still 1.3 MiB. Growing with each Go release.

In-reply-to » @lyse War helicopters? Oof. 😳 Do you have an airbase nearby?

@movq@www.uninformativ.de No, at least not that I know of. The closest would be probably the one from the Americans in Stuttgart. No idea whose war machines these were, though.

The mountain is 684 meters above sea level, so this makes for a difference of about 350 meters in 5 kilometers (most direct trip). Plus a little bit up and down here and there, or more, depending on the selected route. But it’s not climbing stairs, so it’s much more pleasant I’d say. Kudos to you! The last section is the actually steep part. Each brown contour line marks an increase of 10 meters. Sure enough, I’m glad when I finally reach the summit and can pause for a breath. :-)

@movq@www.uninformativ.de 50 kB executable sizes, nice! I can’t even recall when I came across one this small. The good old days.

Just a few minutes into my walk I saw a raven chopping up a slow worm in three parts. :-( I rescued the reptile as best as what you can call rescue in that state. Crazy how the the tail and middle part kept on twisting hard for minutes. I didn’t see where the raven went hiding, so I can only hope it did not reattack after the slow worm went its way and I left the scene.

The small forest pond was covered in pollen, looked like a liming truck went by. And the other one with the duck was really oily. Way more than last time. Didn’t look healthy at all. :-(
