Ah, damn … I have that nice split keyboard, which I really love (I use it more than my Model M 😅), but it’s actually two USB devices. Wayland compositors usually struggle with this. 😢 When Wayland really hits big time, I’ll have to look for another model … Let’s hope the keyboard just breaks in the meantime, otherwise it’s gonna feel a little bit frustrating.
@email@example.com Yeah. Actually quite a bunch of them. I have no idea what they are, but in my last forest stroll galleries you can see them, e.g. here together with the tadpoles at the embankment:
The pond itself isn’t too tiny. I will try to make a better photo next time. There are also a few very large fish in this pond. Close to half a meter in length, no idea about the species either. Most of the time they’re submerged, it’s very hard to spot them. I’ve only witnessed them a hand full of times over all these years. One day last year I could see five (I think) specimens. That was by far the best time. Most about 40 cm long, the largest individual measured 50-60 cm I reckon. I usually only hear them splattering somewhere every now and then. But catching sight of them is mostly impossible.
Yeah, I try to avoid these hot hours, too. But my mate had an appointment later, so either we skipped this week again (next weeks don’t look any better) or just did it. What can you do. Definitely will take some water with me next time.
@firstname.lastname@example.org That looks nice.
children of the rain
@email@example.com Wait, fish? In those little ponds? 😳
Sounds so exhausting. I’ll rather stay indoors during those hot hours. 😅
@firstname.lastname@example.org Ah, I see.
We fed the tadpoles (this time also tadpoles ate the dry bread, not only the fish) and bought some milk. So, just a small stroll. Being out for two hours in 27°C heat is bad. Especially in the sun it’s awfully hot. I’m soaking wet and drank half a liter mineral water straight after coming home.
@abucci By far the best one, though! 😂
@email@example.com Pretty sure that’s a “rook” (Saatkrähe). Their beak is very distinctive.
@firstname.lastname@example.org by far the weirdest plane: https://movq.de/v/863829c893/IMG_4912.JPG
@email@example.com Thanks for confirming. Maybe I removed Mars when I fixed the dead pixels.
@firstname.lastname@example.org Very busy air traffic around you. Like each minute one plane, wow! But great airplane shots. The head of 4866 looks like an eagle, but the tail clearly tells that it is a red kite. What bird is 4912?
@email@example.com it should be able to follow feeds and cache them
Somebody knows how to see posts with twtr client? or it’s only used for posting??
(Forgot to mention, these photos were taking over the course of 50 minutes.)
(btw: There are two parallel runways on the airport but, from that balcony, I can only see the planes that approach one of them. So this is roughly half of the planes arriving here.)
Enjoying a day off, sitting on the balcony in some nice 18°C. 👌

@firstname.lastname@example.org I mean, I get that there are differences of opinion. But death threats? Who the hell is doing that?
@email@example.com hahaha definitely not
@firstname.lastname@example.org Probably Venus, yep. Mars should have been in the vicinity, but I don’t see it. 🤔
@email@example.com Baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah! 🤣 What a mess.
@abucci wasn’t me 😁
Well of course it does 😆 It was trained on code written by humans who make mistakes 🤦♂️
@abucci And yeah re the death threats, that’s really fucked up 😳😱
I hope the plaintiffs win and sue GitHub and Microsoft to kingdom come! 😆
@firstname.lastname@example.org I fully support this! In the past I had to analyze and correlate events in log files and it was very hard without the timezones. One was in UTC and the other in UTC+X. Bonus if customer-reported times for the inquiry were in UTC+Y. Of course I always forgot until next time which log used which timezone. So I had to figure it out again and again. What a giant waste of time. :-(
However, that’s nothing compared to my current project. Here, I must deal with logs where the timezone is somehow part of the logs (I think), but the log viewer can be configured to display timestamps in a certain other timezone. Also, timestamps are generated by the logging service when receiving the event, not when the application actually produces it. Don’t ask. Often, timestamps are just plain wrong and not useable. Luckily, the uptime counter is included as well, which seems to be accurate from what we’ve seen so far. It’s by far the most horrible logging system I’ve ever come across. It gets extra funny when bug reports contain references to the timestamps in any other than the default timezone of the viewer. Of course reporters do not tell you. It’s a world-wide project, so chances are that timezones are all over the place. Unbe-fucking-leavable.
My night hike wasn’t all that great. Well, I admittedly “saw” two frogs. Some black blobs were jumping across the path in the pitch dark that is. But also gazillions of mozzies. And I got myself a mega blister.
To all people writing software: Please, always include the time zone when showing dates/times, especially in log files. It’s almost always the right thing to do and can save your users so much headache during debugging.

The more I read from this guy, the more I come to believe he is a gigantic douchecanoe. What a profoundly stupid thing to say.
GitHub and OpenAI fail to wriggle out of Copilot lawsuit • The Register
Lawsuits alleging GitHub Copilot breached licenses can move forward. Will be interesting to see how these cases are decided.
This is a fucked up detail:
The judge meanwhile rejected the defense argument that the plaintiffs should not be allowed to continue their claim pseudonymously based on death threats sent to the plaintiffs’ counsel.
Who is sending death threats to the lawyers of people trying to sue GitHub/Microsoft/OpenAI, and why? Something’s fishy there.

Crypto collapse? Get in loser, we’re pivoting to AI – Attack of the 50 Foot Blockchain
Someone on here gave me a hard time when I suggested that the crypto grifters were pivoting to AI after crypto collapsed. But, they were and they still are.
@email@example.com crazy price.
I found this to be a good thread on the subject of how the media is covering the dam explosion. The author, Timothy Snyder, is a history professor at Yale and has consistently good commentary on the war in Ukraine.
Thoughts on Apple Vision Pro?
@firstname.lastname@example.org yeah, I see your point. but it’s sad to say it’s better witha blown nuclear reactor the nuke bombs being dropped around. But yeah, hope this shit ends soon. we do not notice it here at all, but the military is ramping up in the north, which is good, and much needed.
@email@example.com I tried to call him but he wouldn’t answer the phone 😞
@firstname.lastname@example.org I think I understand NATO’s hesitation, but at the same time if this drags on and on for years then it causes massive loss of life and is even more dangerous for everyone. If that nuclear power plant melts down, whether because Russia causes it directly or because of an “accident”, then all of Europe can be blanketed with fallout. The longer this goes on, the more likely that possibility (and worse ones!) becomes.
That is scary to be so close to Russia. I hope you’re doing OK.
I wonder when they will show a UAP\UFO in physical form to everyone.
So much talk about it - but no physical evidence is shown.
I have no doubt that tech like that exists somewhere in the universe - it’s not unlikely at all.
Just think about the tech advancement the last 200 years, and then what if there exists others that are 1 million years beyond our timeline.
Has anyone tried to call Mr. Putin and say please stop? 🤔
@email@example.com I agree with you on this, and find it crazy that he’s not been stopped yet.
@firstname.lastname@example.org I think the problem is that NATO does not want to get directly involved, because that scales up everything.
So they provide with the things they can to help instead. It worries me a bit (even though I live in the South of Norway - and Russia borders in the north), but it helps a lot that we have Sweden and Finland next to us. But if shit hits the fan - then it won’t be easy to get anywhere from here, unless we steal a boat and go to England or something like that (or get on a plane).
I try not to worry, but it’s in the back of my mind still.. But we have talked about it in my family, and if things happen then we have a plan on what to do first.
Paid the tadpoles a visit again. Also there were lots of small fish. I threw in crumbs of old bread and the fish loved it. It wasn’t too hot actually, 22°C when leaving the house.
@email@example.com yeah, it’s a horrible waste.
@abucci Ahh I see. Admittedly I haven’t been really following the the war, maybe I should have, but I find the whole things a waste of human existence 😢 I only hope one day Putin and his “henchmen” pay for their crimes.
@firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks! 25°C is already too much for me. They forecast 28°C for Sunday, oh gawd. I also had a barbie for lunch yesterday. :-)
@email@example.com I don’t agree. I think he’s a thug who benefits a lot if everybody thinks he’s a madman.
All through this war, there has been a repeated cycle:
- We can’t give Ukraine weapon X; that will provoke Putin and he’ll drop a nuke!
- Russian propagandists threaten they’re about to drop nukes
- After lots of hand wringing, some country gives weapon X to Ukraine
- No nukes are dropped
We’re on like the 5th iteration of this. Now it’s about F-16 fighter jets. In the meantime, a lot of Ukrainians AND Russians are dying en masse.
Yeah I get what you mean; but Putin is a mad man 😱
@firstname.lastname@example.org I said nothing about an international violent response. You added that 🤔
If someone punches you in the face over and over again, you don’t stand there and take it to avoid “begetting violence”. You stop them from punching you, and do your best to ensure they never punch you again. That’s not “violence begets violence”. That’s rationality.
Hmmm whilst I agree with you, I worry about this sort of thing s lot.
Violence begets violence
This demands a response from Europe, the world, not just Ukraine.
