In-reply-to » I’ve been to the office almost every day for the last 5 weeks (debugging WiFi in our various buildings) and it really took a toll on me. I’m exhausted. It’s so much overhead to drive to the office, a ridiculous waste of resources and time. How did we ever consider this normal? 😨

@movq@www.uninformativ.de Oh crap, five weeks!? Hell, this is bad. :-( I don’t understand it either how we did that years ago day in, day out. Feels just so wrong. I hear you, I even complain if I have to come in once every one or two months. It’s a giant waste of time.

But did you get the WiFi finally fixed? Or has the insane commute to continue? 😰

In-reply-to » @lyse That looks like really annoying german Matschwetter. 😅

@movq@www.uninformativ.de It was muddy indeed (as witnessed by my hiking trousers and boots). But I’ve seen worse. We had rain for the last days, which is quite nice for nature, so I don’t mind it too much. I can hear the pattering just now. Quite calming.

Yesterday, I came into constant drizzling literally a minute after leaving the house for a stroll to the dairy farm. An hour later I was well-soaked, because I didn’t take an umbrella with me. Oh well. But I put on the backpack rain cover. Luckily, it’s semi-attached to the bag. I think I have to build some kind of dryer rack/stand/thingy so that I can hang my wet stuff over the bathtub to let it drip. Earlier I rinsed out my trousers in a bucket to get the majority of the mud off.

Exactly, we reckoned it is a Kleiber, too. You could have just looked at the alternative text of the image in the announcement twt. 8-) But it’s always good to have an independent second opinion that came to the same result. :-)

Good timing, it started to drizzle when we were nearly home again. Other than that the weather was a gray soup. My camera had a hard time with long exposures in this darkness.

We came across a section that was heavily harvested. 18 and 19 show 3.5 to 4 meter tall piles of logs. Several hundred meters were lined with stack after stack. On the one hand it was cool to stand next to it a big heap but also quite sad at the same time.

Hard to believe, but 13 and 14 is the same tree. We reckon that is a birch because of the white bark, but this cobble stone texture (for the lack of a better term) at the bottom doesn’t really look a birch at all. Neither of us has seen that before.

In-reply-to » Didn't even make it to a main road before I had a wheelie bin's worth picked up. Pretty disgusted, to be honest, but I'm sure it'll make the school run more pleasant tomorrow. Media

@thecanine@twtxt.net To hand in some types of garbage (e.g. construction rubble over one bucket load) at the local civic waste collection points you have to pay a fee. But you’ll find all sorts of crap in the wild that you can dispose of for free at these centers. No idea what they are thinking. It remains a mystery.

@jlj@twt.nfld.uk You did very good! Crazy how much you gathered in such a small amount of time. It’s sad to see how people are just disposing of their rubbish like that. @thecanine@twtxt.net Not at all. Unfortunately, that sounds familiar. You won’t believe what we dig up each year with the scouts at world cleanup day or our own forest cleaning event.

In-reply-to » @lyse lovely trek, and a long one indeed! Quite a bit to see on those photos. You got goats fighting, a picture perfect in the middle of nowhere (frame and all), a church, seemingly vast parches of land, snow, ice, a castle, a village, greenery, etc., etc., etc. Wow, it fees as if you walked through different seasons too! Well done, mate, well done.

@bender@twtxt.net Thank you very much! :-) Only blue sky and more sun would have made for even nicer scenery. But I don’t want to complain at all.

In-reply-to » @eldersnake Several reasons:

For the record (if you don’t care, just wait for this to be evicted from the cache :-P), here’s what I said on IRC, partially sprinkled with some brief explanations I added after the fact.

It’s another language to learn (SQL)

Yes, but it’s not too terrible, you probably don’t need all the features, you stick to a simple subset of the language that can easily be learned in my opinion.

It adds another dependency to your system

Sort of. But you can omit your own archive/cache implementation in return. Provided, you use a properly tested and well-proven database, you don’t have to worry about your own invention.

It’s another failure mode (database blows up, scheme changes, indexs, etc)

That does make exactly no difference from your own stuff blowing up in your face or changing anything regarding schema or indexes. Your own cache/archive can become corrupted, too. Changing the data that will be stored means even your own solution has to deal with that as well.

It increases security problems (now you have to worry about being SQL-safe)

Same here. You have to think about that with your own implementation as well. Gotta simply have to secure your cache and archive data on disk. I probably misunderstood the part on SQL-safety, hence there was a follow-up argument on IRC:

There is no possibility of any silly SQL injection flaws

Yes, but every serious database driver has simple solutions to avoid injections. Don’t get me wrong, it is a point, but just so minor, that it can be easily addressed, esp. when components are properly cut to their responsibilities (aka there is a storage access layer that can simply escape everything, if explicitly needed).

Another advantage with a database is that there is already wide tool support out there. You don’t have to come up with your own specialized tooling in order to look into your dataset when trying to figure out what rubbish has accumulated etc. I’m just thinking about all the discussions with bad data we had in the past. As far as I understood it, initially there was no way to analyze that, custom code had to be always written first.

Having said that, I’m backing off this discussion. Please note, I don’t want to convince anybody to switch to a database, I just think these arguments are flawed (that term might be too harsh, who knows, English is not my mother tongue).

In-reply-to » I was musing today about how to solve the problem of projects going stale on github. It really is an annoying problem if you depend on a project where the main maintainers go absent without passing the project on to someone else. The project becomes trapped and dead. Usually (and rightfully), only the maintainers can push releases that can be used by a wider community. But that means if you're depending on a ruby gem or an npm package or a java jar or any other build artifact on an official channel, you're out luck because the release artifacts are no longer updated once the maintainers go absent. People can submit pull requests, but with no maintainers to accept them, the source code goes stale too. Though you can grab the pull release(s), the merge process often requires project-specific knowledge that has gone absent with the maintainers.

@abucci@anthony.buc.ci Exactly! What’s wrong with that? :-D

@abucci@anthony.buc.ci Not really an answer to your question, but I usually try to reduce the number of dependencies to a bare minimum in the first place. Of course this doesn’t always work out perfectly. If something becomes unmaintained there’s always the possibility to fork myself to either keep it at this version or maintain it a bit. Eventually, I probably move on to something else, though.

In-reply-to » Today's hike photo gallery is mainly single-colored. Even with my good hiking boots I nearly slipped about twenty times. Paths were extremely icy. I reckon 14 and the video show a frozen spider thread, we've seen a couple of them, pretty nice. No icicles were visible far and wide, though.

@prologic@twtxt.net No, that feller was already there. We didn’t modify anything except from leaving out footprints in the snow. ;-)

In-reply-to » Gonna buy some firewood today, to use in our firepit, love sitting outside late - make some good food for my kids on the fire, then just sit and talk and have fun, look at the stars etc :) Gonna be a nice weekend for sure.

@stigatle@yarn.stigatle.no @prologic@twtxt.net Snow camping is really tempting, unfortunately, my sleeping bags are not rated for these temperatures. If I had a tent and planned ahead, I could try it this night, it is only supposed to get down to -2°C. On Sunday night/morning it should even reach -6°C. Brrr. Keep us posted with your snow camping adventure! :-)

@bender@twtxt.net @jlj@twt.nfld.uk Thanks, mates! :-) Yes, seeing this for real is something entirely different. All the subtleties don’t show up on camera. Not just because of the white balance and snow causing everything to overexpose. But like clouds moving in at the summit and darkening the environment over there a wee bit. It’s only a tiny bit, but still just noticeable. And then looking the other way and observing that it is still brighter because the clouds haven’t reached that spot yet. Low hanging clouds are always super crazy to experience first hand.

As you can see in 01, when we reached the mountain foot, the view to the top was certainly not great but also not too bad, at least we could still see it. Finally up there, zero visibility, because of the clouds (16). It then cleared for a few seconds (17) at the same spot, but only barely. Closed up again quickly, the clouds still had us. The more we descended, the more the clouds moved on as well. Back down, the view from up top must have been heaps better again (at least we could see the flying flag once more). ;-)

All the ice crystals on the trees are really amazing. Super crazy to see what the wind managed to do, building up these beautiful structures.

Another thing that doesn’t come across is walking in the snow and ice. Unfortunately, you miss out on all sorts of different noises it produces and how it feels. Scrunch varies with powdery snow, frozen snow and hollow ice sheets. Also what I really like is how quiet it gets. Snow is an amazing sound dampener.

The wind made the flags raddle around, on our descend we got tricked numerous times and thought that somebody is coming up that snowy beaten track. Walking in that snow and the flying flag made almost the exact same sound. :-)

In-reply-to » What’s the German word that encapsulates “the feeling of unhappiness with current management”?

Sorry, @bender@twtxt.net, I can’t think of a single word describing that. Even asked my parents and neither can they. If you eventually stumble across it, let me know. ;-) You can just translate it and say „das Unzufriedenheitsgefühl mit der derzeitigen Geschäftsleitung“.

In-reply-to » @movq Oh, even Fraktur! It took me brute force to decypher "Heute", mainly due to the "H". Both "n" and "u" look identical to me, so my brain tricked me into believing that it of course has to be an "n". Looks quite beautiful, keep it coming.

@movq@www.uninformativ.de Wow, this is super interesting to see! Thank you very much, mate. Now that hook is cool, I’m surprised that it can extend the ink supply that long. Quite genious.

Holy moly, half an hour for a few lines?! This is really something. But the result is totally worth it. Your writings look amazing, let me tell you. I bet the receiver of the birthday card was incredibly pleased.

Do I read the wikipedia article correctly, drying takes around a day? This can’t be true, can it? Anyways, bring us joy with calligraphy in the future. :-)

If you’d take your time, @justamoment@twtxt.net, your handwriting could be nice, too. :-D

@movq@www.uninformativ.de Oh, cool. :-) Does your pen have an ink cartridge or do you dip it in an ink jar? The result looks very uniform, so I suspect the former, but I can’t be sure.

@movq@www.uninformativ.de Ah, I see. Although the two “E”s are quite a bit different, I can’t decide whether I prefer one over the other. They have both some very nice and unique features. How did you get into calligraphy?

Alright, at closer examination the “u” has a small prong in the left lower corner.

In-reply-to » Picking up calligraphy as a hobby again – after a long break. The result isn’t great, but better than I expected. Maybe this is a bit like riding a bike, you don’t unlearn it. 😅
