@email@example.com Yes, this is totally useless. I now unsubscribed from that feed. It was on the rocks for quite some time already.
This video platform serves me super high speed 20 KiB/s today. Yesterday the same happened even on the bloody website a bunch of times. Well, I reckon, they want me to turn my attention to actually useful realworld stuff instead.
Trees were pruned and cut down yesterday: https://lyse.isobeef.org/baumschnitt-2023-11-07/ It’s hard to tell, but the last photo even shows the tree runk segment on its way down. The audio track was just lots of random noise, so I simply muted it. I was thinking about putting some singing birds or something like that, but I was too lazy.
“Premieres in 50 days” Okay, thanks YouTube… But don’t worry, it’s getting even sillier! The next entry reports even: “Premieres in 448 days”
Turns out, there is a lot more snow out there than expected. Even entire field roads being several hundred meter long, giant ice tracks. Ice skates would have been the proper footwear.
@firstname.lastname@example.org Glad you like it, too. :-) Same here, hardly any white left. Just a wee bit on few North facing sides.
More snow photos from that day: https://lyse.isobeef.org/schnee-2023-12-03/
Last night it got much warmer (~6°C) than it was on the day itself (below freezing). That usually never happens. The snow melted and little avalanches came crashing down the roof. All the bangs scared the hell out of me last night.
Oh, that’s neat! You can create all sorts of templates here to your needs: https://www.blocklayer.com/protractor-print
@email@example.com Awesome! :-) I just relaxed last week. Two more to go and then I’m done for quite some time, too. Can’t wait.
@firstname.lastname@example.org Oh, very nice! Quak, quak, feed us! :-) Holidays up until next year, hm?
@email@example.com Oh boy, that’s too hot, I’m not gonna trade you. :-D
I messed up on the date. That’s the corrected link: https://lyse.isobeef.org/morgensonne-2023-12-03/
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.
@firstname.lastname@example.org Oh crap, hope you get well soon!
@email@example.com Ta! Of course this happens after I got a second battery for the camera. Maybe I gotta have to bring it to a photo shop. Probably costs me a fortune.
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.
@firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
@email@example.com 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.
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.
@firstname.lastname@example.org Roofs and greenery have a thin white coating.
The snowplow just drove by. Only to salt, though.
@email@example.com @firstname.lastname@example.org Oh nice! It continued a bit, too. But it didn’t remain on the ground. I didn’t leave the house, but I reckon I’ll enjoy it tomorrow. Currently it’s raining, like most of the day.
Oh yeah, we have our first snowfall down here. Nice thick flakes, too. Melts instantly, though.
@email@example.com Hell yeah, this is sooo cool! :-) Thank you for showing us, too. <3
@firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
@email@example.com 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. :-)
@firstname.lastname@example.org 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”. :-)
On the descent we got caught in a sudden thunderstorm and blundered into soft hail. Basically got sandblasted. https://lyse.isobeef.org/waldspaziergang-2023-11-24/
for i doin shell scripts. Turns out, that walks over all positional arguments. So I reckon my
for i in "$@"; docan 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.
@email@example.com 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.
@firstname.lastname@example.org Very cool! I have something similar: https://git.isobeef.org/lyse/gelbariab/-/blob/master/rss-proxys/youtubeuploadsfeed.py
@email@example.com Oh! :-D It’s exactly what it looks like, it’s an old castle built around 1250 and burned down when hit by lightning in 1865: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hohenrechberg_Castle
@firstname.lastname@example.org Oh, I actually thought that the pin might be some kind of a reference. But I didn’t figure out it was Czech. I guess the dog was doing dog stuff and hence especially the white got a bit dirty. :-) Yeah, they sometimes have some strange choices for their cosplay.
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.
@email@example.com Ah, that makes sense now.
@firstname.lastname@example.org Cool, what uniform is he wearing?
@email@example.com What do you mean by “cattle looking buildings”, which photo number? I don’t see any buildings that look like cows. Or what is the other meaning of “cattle”?
@firstname.lastname@example.org Hmmm, random sort for the genres? I also do miss power metal. :-) But I generally listen to music that’s on my own computer. No waste of network resources and just works all the time.
@email@example.com For a web UI such a button sounds quite convenient. The only downside is that spammers also like that link. :-( So if built into e.g. yarnd, it should be probably opt-in and it might only really work well with single-user instances. At least it’s not obvious to me which address that e-mail reply button would use when multiple people are involved in a conversation. The original author’s? The last commentator’s? Reply to all of them? Note that I didn’t give this any real thought. This is only what popped up right in my head. :-)
@firstname.lastname@example.org That’s a pity, of course.
@email@example.com Hmm, that sounds a bit strange to me. Why isn’t all weaponry limited to the same dates? Weird historical reasons I guess?
I just measured on a map that I hiked 22.5 km in 5:30 hours today. And I took 723 photos (yes, I’m totally insane; for your viewing pleasure I reduced them to only 96), which resulted in a lot of stops and a bunch of wasted time. I reckon I haven’t done this trip often enough, because I took the wrong turn-off – twice, on the way there and back – which cost me several extra kilometers. Well, I was just enjoying myself in nature, so that wasn’t bad at all. It just meant that I wouldn’t be home before dark. And that’s totally fine with me. Maybe next time I care to remember to walk the more direct route. We’ll see.
The golden autumn is so fricking beautiful. It only rained in the morning, so I left right after lunch. We then had a good mix of clouds and sunshine. At the beginning, the sun was out for at most 10 seconds in a row before the next cloud covered it up again. My camera takes longer than that to boot, so I missed a ton of opportunities. But judging by the number of photos, it didn’t hurt at all.
9 and 10 is a common kestral. I could figure that out based on another photo which had good colors but was very blurry. Unfortuntately, the deer in 30-32 were too far away. A few hundred meters I’d say. I had to think of Rapunzel in 84-86. :-)
After dawn and one and a half completely drained batteries I walked past a bunch of trees and wondered what kind of birds were sitting on them. They didn’t look like ravens or something similar. Suddenly, 20-30 red kites flew up (their V-shaped tails made it crystal clear). I have never seen so many of them in a flock. Not even close. That was super cool to watch. Much later after dark I also saw a bat flying over my head. Nice way to end this trip.
@firstname.lastname@example.org The only reliable way to let the other party know is to write an e-mail or any other out of bounds communication mechansim. There’s just the User-Agent header in the discoverability extension of Twtxt itself that comes close: https://twtxt.readthedocs.io/en/latest/user/discoverability.html But it requires feed operators to actually play along and check. Active pushes are prone to spam, so I actually view the lack thereof as a good thing.
@email@example.com Oh well. At least the deer like it I guess. :-) So hunting season is already over then? I don’t even know how it works here.
@firstname.lastname@example.org I see. I only used these low-tech mechanical timers back in the days: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/9/9b/Zeitschaltuhr_mechanisch.jpg But it never got switched around to other power points.
