In-reply-to » @stigatle All good, my company is organizing a Christmas event to meet with everyone and I'll finally get to meet our newest remote coworkers which I work with since about 2 years ago but never met before.

that’s an amazingly long time to work with coworkers remotely, without ever, having physically met them! 😱

just goes to show that remote work is absolutely possible and absolutely does work 👌

In-reply-to » Big snow day. I think we're approaching 12" in our neighborhood now. I shoveled our driveway twice already and actually broke out the snowblower to clear part of the street by the curb and our mailboxes. It works great when the snow is powdery, but clogs up fast with wetter snow like we're getting now.

@axodys Oh wow! 😳 That’s amazingly awesome! 🤣 And looks cold! 🥶

In-reply-to » Social media should be forbidden before 18.

@tkanos I don’t think so. What we should do is teach our children social etiquette, both online and offline. Teach them about abuse, that can occur both in the real world and in the online world (they are basically the same). Teach them about data privacy and security. And so on…

I share with you the first ‘public alpha’ of the tool to vote for the best time on an International Call.

UX needs to be improved a lot, but I’d like to start understanding if this is the right compromise between simplicity and effectiveness.

Help me to break it, and share your feedback or ideas!

In-reply-to » @prologic I didn't think too much of him previously; didn't dislike him any more than I dislike billionaires generally. He just seemed like a run of the mill rich guy con artist who happened to appeal to a certain type of tech guy. But, the other day he tweeted something about his first born child dying in his arms and how he felt the last heartbeat. But then his ex-wife tweeted that no, in fact the child had suffered from SIDS and died in her arms. And that soured me on him completely forever. He's the sort of self-important narcissist who would make up something about a dying baby to try to score points in an online argument. That's so pathetic and contemptible.

I just don’t understand how people can behave this way and things like #abxlsba happen 🤦‍♂️ I just don’t get it 🤣

@axodys Wow, that’s a lot. Never experienced that much around here. Only in the alps. With the climate change we have less and less snow each year. Last season there were maybe five days where snow actually settled. Definitely less than ten days. Decades ago we had several weeks of snow. So enjoy it while you still have it around. It’ll probably be a thing of the past before you know it. Yeah, currently it feels like a burden, I know. Happy snow shoveling!

In-reply-to » Erster Akt: Jemand stellt einen Blumenkübel mit Blumen für Bienen auf.

@movq Hähähä, stimmt, aus dem Blickwinkel hab ich das noch gar nicht betrachtet! :-D Ich dachte, dass der angezeigte Blumentopf schon so einige Monate auf dem Buckel hat. Das Datum sieht nach 10. März oder gar Februar aus. Vermutlich dieses Jahr. August oder September können’s nicht sein, denn der Bogen oben links ist offen und nicht geschlossen, also kommen nur 2 und 3 in Frage, nicht jedoch 8 und 9.

Irgendwie unterlag ich der Annahme, dass Aktenzeichen öffentlich zugänglich wären. Aber das muss ein Irrtum sein, denn ich konnt auf die Schnelle auch nix finden. Bin gespannt, was Du uns in Zukunft in der Sache noch so alles berichten wirst. :-)

@prologic yes, somehow we can.

The main issue is the appended user in the standard message storage, it can be handled with a hidden field like in yarns. What do you think?

In-reply-to » 3 whole days in #Go I noticed my search history rolled back to: - "Convert an int to bool in Go" - "Swap two variables in Go" - "How to write a dictionary in Go"

@prologic I wrote them by memory and got them wrong, here what I searched and why:

  • Using boolean as int to do math like false - true => -1` for selecting motion, managed differently
  • Swapping struct fields in a 2d array: solved by decoupling the items and it’s array with pointers
  • Found that quickly myself ✌️

Almost done with my first baby Go experiment, I’ll share soon™️`

Wikipedia is asking for donations again (at least here in Germany). They show a (very annoying) popup. When you close it, a second small popup appears and asks if you would like to donate at a later point. As I actually do intend to donate some bucks later, I clicked “yes”.

Trouble is, that popup appears every time.

Just now, I clicked “no, I do not want to donate” for a change. Turns out, now the popup is gone for good. 🥴

So I now have to click “no” all the time (because I don’t store cookies when the browser closes). This sends the wrong signal to Wikipedia. 😂 I do want to donate, I just want the damn popup to be gone.

Gar so stürmisch war es hier in der letzten Zeit nicht. Aber das wäre natürlich noch lustiger, wenn der Topf mitsamt „anonymer Anzeige“ in Sicherheit gebracht und dann wieder rausgestellt worden wäre … 😂

In-reply-to » Speaking of DST, it appears Mexico will abolish it?

@eaplmx This is so crazy.

I just don’t get how this is not a transitive problem. What good does it do if only some states at the border follow US time? Doesn’t this just shift the problem from, say, Juárez to Ahumada? Before, Juárez had trouble with Texas. Now, Ahumada should have trouble with Juárez, so the issue has just shifted. 🤷

Humans are strange. 🤪 👽
