In-reply-to » I rotated June to September into their own archive feeds. I hope I didn't mess up. There's still one or the other manual step involved. I should write a few tests and automate it fully. It might also be a good idea to write a validator program which can check all the feeds for consistency.

@movq@www.uninformativ.de @prologic At least my recent messages seem to still work then. :-) Thanks to both of you.

In-reply-to » @movq Thanks! Woohoo, now it's also white down here: https://lyse.isobeef.org/tmp/schnee-2023-12-01.jpg Today's walk is going to be even better.

My camera fell down on the bathroom tiles and now my corners are black. Looks like the aperture got moved or so. Anyways, we played in 20 cm snow up on the mountain. With all that snow it was much easier to get up and down. But the restaurant car didn’t make it today. The way home is mostly downhill, so we had good fun taking running starts and sliding a few meters down the streets. Every now and then suddenly our boot got good grip again and we nearly layed down on our faces.

Why is there no great possibility in HTML to enter a timestamp with timezone information? HTML5 brings us a nice timestamp input widget with <input type="datetime-local">. But that’s just local time, whatever that might be on the client. What kind of fool came up with this? Almost good, mostly bad. Now I have the option to add custom timezone select boxes next to the timestamp input fields (or just one timestamp select box in front of all timestamp fields) or just ignore that useless HTML5 crap and go with an <input type="text"> instead. Sigh.

In-reply-to » Context-switches are a real productivity killer if it means that by the time you get back to the previous context your remote desktop session expired.

@johanbove@johanbove.info Happens to us all the time with test devices, too. :-( And then you gotta start all over again because you most likely do not get the previous one where you already set up your stuff.

In-reply-to » Heck yeah, @movq! I should do a tour today, too. I'm pretty sure it was walked or strolled, @prologic.

Up on the mountains there was snow. Could already been seen from down here. The path was very slick. Heaps of people tramped down the snow and teamed up with the sun to transform it into ice. I was glad that I wore my good hiking boots. I cannot imagine how the mountain restaurant owner’s car will come down this evening without sliding off that steep, icy road. I haven’t seen tire chains and said forest trail is never gritted.

In-reply-to » See, even a video I was just watching on Youtube just now, the guy said:

@prologic I always aggressively jump over this stupid shit and never listen to it. That means I might miss some actual good stuff right after the garbage they advertise. But I’m not willing to seek back.

In-reply-to » One of these tricky things of the German language I haven't really gotten the hang of is the difference between: "Ich weiss." and "Ich weiß."

@movq@www.uninformativ.de My brain always reads this as “f” and then I think: what the heck? A split-second later it occurs to me, right, it’s an extinct letter. What was it again? Hmm. Ah, an ancient “s”! Every single time. In all those years, I haven’t gotten used to it. :-)

In-reply-to » One of these tricky things of the German language I haven't really gotten the hang of is the difference between: "Ich weiss." and "Ich weiß."

@johanbove@johanbove.info The former is Swiss German as they do not have the “ß” and always use “ss” instead. Everywhere else the sharp s is used in that case. I always wonder how the Swiss then distinguish between “In Maßen” and “In Massen”. :-)

In-reply-to » You'll never guess what I learned from https://www.uninformativ.de/blog/postings/2023-11-19/0/POSTING-en.html. I've never seen for i do in shell scripts. Turns out, that walks over all positional arguments. So I reckon my for i in "$@"; do can now be shorter from now on. Very interesting in that detailled explanation to see all the – at least to me – inconsistent handling of semicolons and line breaks.

@movq@www.uninformativ.de You’re good, it’s POSIX-compliant. ;-) I also was taught $* first instead of "$@". Looks like a common thing. :-) Shell has just soooooo many quirks and inconsistencies, it is quite hard to master it. But we’ll never get rid of it.
