@lyse 🤣

The weirdest thing about Boney M. is: That guy is just dancing – and lip-syncing. The vocals were done by Frank Farian. So, uhm … I don’t know how to put this into words. 😂 “Hey, you! Come over here! We have a song. Now you jump around! Wiggle your arms! Yaaay! Now drop on the floor! Now get back up! Yaaaay! That’s what people want to see!”

Dunno, this is super bizarre to me. 😂 It’s got a strong Rick & Morty vibe …

But hey. It’s a catchy tune.

In-reply-to > Ah, I completely forgot that EAV also made an English version of Ba-Ba-Bankrobbery! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4gSEhNPKT9g The Austrian band name EAV, Erste Allgemeine Verunsicherung, German for First General Confusion/Uninsurance, is a pun on the name of an Austrian insurance company. Fun fact: A resident loadly played this song when a bank in Vienna was robbed in 2007 until the police intervened. :-D

@lyse Lol, in welches YouTube-Loch bin ich denn jetzt gefallen … 🤣🤣🤣

In-reply-to > We had the tiniest bit of snow in the morning, but 99% melted over the day. However, as expected our local mountain acted as a good snow storage. My mate and I called it a day quite early and went up there. The main path was closed off with a simple sign, that recommended to use the sneaky trail on the other side instead, so we followed that suggestion. Going uphill we noticed, that there had not been a lot of traffic and we ended up being the only two people up there. On the way back we just went down the main path without issues. My fingers froze a bit in the end, I need to get better gloves. Sorry, the images are a bit blue. https://lyse.isobeef.org/waldspaziergang-2021-12-07/

@lyse That blue is great, though. 😊 Fits perfectly.

In-reply-to > @prologic Probably. The thing is, I only discovered Delphi after VB. Plus, VB was “the natural thing to do” anyway, since I started out with Basic. 😁

@prologic Exactly, that one! 🤣 (Honestly, I’m not sure which BASIC interpreter was the first one I/we used. GWBASIC certainly was among them. I did most of the stuff with QB45 a bit later. And then a looooot more with VB5 on Windows 95 … Oh dear. 🥴 I never made it to VB6, though.)

In-reply-to > My feed has now been rotated. The code in jenny is still experimental. I’ll push it once I’ve tested it for a while.

@fastidious Yeah, but hold your horses. As @stackeffect has pointed out, this is too backwards-incompatible (I thought I could get away with it :-)). I’ll have to tweak those settings again to allow for custom filenames (i.e., stackeffect.txt or twt.txt instead of twtxt.txt).

In-reply-to > Darch comes from my last Mørch which means dark in Danish but it spell mørk when it is not a name. And since you can't use æøå I emails I just came up with sp_darch when I created my very first Hotmail back the late 90s. Pronounced: dark

@ullarah It’s a new thing. I mean, e-mail easily predates Unicode anyway. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unicode_and_email My mail server (OpenSMTPD) doesn’t even support it yet. 😬

In-reply-to > Well, I think I just lost the “Advent of Code” game (my personal private version of it, anyway). I did day 04 in Python, because I couldn’t conjure up the motivation to do it in Rust. 🤦

@prologic I didn’t give up entirely. 😁 Just didn’t reach my goal of doing it all in Rust.

I’m a bit surprised that each task has nothing to do with the previous one. You basically write a new program every day. That really promotes “quick and dirty” solutions. 🤔 I was expecting that the tasks build on each other, like, we’ll have a fully functional submarine at the end. 🥴 You probably didn’t expect that, either – I mean, your solutions in Go are waaaay over-engineered. 😂

In-reply-to > My feed has now been rotated. The code in jenny is still experimental. I’ll push it once I’ve tested it for a while.

FYI @fastidious @stackeffect

I pushed the experimental code to jenny’s public repo.

Be aware that it will rotate your files as soon as you run jenny -e or write a new twt. The default number of twts per file is 100.

I hope it’s bug-free, but if you find one, please tell me.

Date-based rotation is not yet implemented and I’m not 100% sure if I’m going to – do we really need that? The main goal of this feature is to keep the files small and I think that “number of twts” is a good measurement for this. But dates? When you write 100 twts per day, you’ll get huge files again. 🤷

In-reply-to > My feed has now been rotated. The code in jenny is still experimental. I’ll push it once I’ve tested it for a while.

@lyse My goal was to keep the files at “a few kilobyte”. 100 lines of twts gets you to around ~25 kB, so I went with that.

I’m not 100% sure about those file names. I certainly want to have the date in there. To avoid collisions, I included the hash. Another way to avoid collisions would be to just use the full date or a UNIX timestamp. 🤔

In-reply-to > An important question came up in our call: How's your nick pronounced, @movq? I reckon it is a reference on assembler (I'm not proficient in it), so I'd say "move q", could be totally wrong though.

@lyse There – kind of – is a story.

I sometimes write x86_64 assembler just for fun. It’s rare, but it happens. In 2019, I had quite a bit of wrist issues, so I couldn’t type a lot. I still went to work, so, well, I still had to type a couple of hours every day (which is a lot, if you think about it).

During that time, I had a little pet project where I wrote a simple grep in asm:

https://uninformativ.de/git/grep.asm

Skim through the code and you’ll already see a ton of movq instructions. It’s a very basic and common instruction.

The punchline is: I wasn’t really able to finish this project (due to those wrist issues), but I reaaaaaaaaaaaaaaally wanted to. So I put the keyboard on the floor and wrote like 50% of that code using my feet. Yes, you read that correctly. 🥴 Yes, I am crazy. And this somehow got stuck in my head. movq movq movq movq movq movqmovqmoqvmom … I was quite literally dancing it. 🥴 💃 When I got fed up with my previous nick name, I searched for a new one for quite a while, but couldn’t find anything good. So I just chose movq, because it was floating around in my head anyway (and I already had the domain). 🤷

In-reply-to > An important question came up in our call: How's your nick pronounced, @movq? I reckon it is a reference on assembler (I'm not proficient in it), so I'd say "move q", could be totally wrong though.

@lyse It’s pronounced “Catherine”.

Just kidding. 🥴

Yeah, it’s a reference to the movq instruction. I’ve never said it out loud, though. 🤣 “Move Q”, “mov-q”, something like that.

Now the big question: How to pronounce lyse? 🤔 (I’d go with “lühse”, because uhm, “lice” would be strange.)

In-reply-to > My feed has now been rotated. The code in jenny is still experimental. I’ll push it once I’ve tested it for a while.

@fastidious They’d have to traverse the prev fields (listed in metadata at the header of the feed). jenny doesn’t do that automatically (yet), but this must be implemented. Otherwise, there’s a risk of missing twts.

@lyse Hmm, probably only a matter of time until they do the same over here. 😦

I don’t really remember how the street lights used to look here. That orange stuff is “new”, they switched to those lamps like 15 or 20 years ago. I think it was a neutral white before that. 🤔 I just remember that these “orange” lights were really strange at first … 😁
