Whoot for Fibre Optics 🥳
Things can get very interesting when we add the iter.Pull function in the mix. It works like pythons yield from.
the function can yield two values to include an index.
The range function can signal when to stop running by returning false from the yield function.
Go 1.22.0 introduces a new experiment for range functions. Have you tried them out? What do you think it can make easier to accomplish?
Wow, OpenWatcom can cross-compile OS/2 binaries on Linux. Even GUI programs, just like that. 🤯 That’s a whole new territory to explore. 👷
@firstname.lastname@example.org I found the bee!
The birds really are singing much more lately. Lovely to hear. 😊
16°C, almost bathers weather! Sun was hiding behind the clouds, though. The walk in the forest was very beautiful. Birds were singing, the first bees gathered nectar, all sorts of flowers brought some more color into nature. We enjoyed it.
Who spots the bee?
Our local creek has flooded again 😱
I noticed this afternoon that we currently have Carnival vacations this week. So many people outdoors.
I’ve seen three great spotted woodpeckers and heard dozens more hammering the trees. But the photos turned out to be rubbish.
It was very windy at the summit, but I sat on the castle wall and enjoyed the sun beating on me. I would have loved to just relax there half an hour longer, but I had to be back in time. :-(
09 looks like it’s straight from an AI, but the moss was actually on top of a smaller tree. I fell down from a giant moss-covered tree next to it.
Quite cool how much reach the lift’s outriggers have to level it on that steep street.
29-32 show the reason for closing the forest road for one and a half months. A tree fell over and got hung up in the telephone cable in a 45° angle. Only the wire prevented it from crashing down on the road. I find it astonishing that the cable did not rip apart. After all, the tree was quite substantial. No idea why it took them so long to get it removed, though.
The entire meadow in 36 was totally covered with mouse holes. Sick!
@email@example.com I have that
\a in my regular prompt. Any long running command will trigger the terminal bell, which is very handy. 🙂
But … for tea, I have this:
(I love that thing. It’s ancient but it keeps working. And it’s maintenance free, because it’s solar and radio controlled. 👌)
Now the graph shows the gaps:
Much more realistic. Most stuff lies dormant most of the time. 😅
Which is a good thing in my book. I think there’s something wrong if software needs constant tinkering.
I noticed that some of my software projects have a rather long lifetime, so I made a little graph:
Happy Twixmas everyone (new word I just learned 2 min ago)
I have finally gotten around to implementing a gallery feature to timeline.
There is still some hiccups, like the limited caching is making it difficult to make links back to older posts not working. Maybe @firstname.lastname@example.org you can help me with that?
👋 Happy Holidays from above the clouds!
I’ll have to disappoint you, not properly joining the Christmas profile picture thing, for the second year in the row.
This year in fact countering it, with a profile picture wearing sunglasses. Hopefully at least the Australian users, have my back with this one.
A thing from start of this month, that I never posted here:
Mondays sometimes really do be like:
Omg! I’m always playing on those pixel placing canvases, where it’s usually an endless war of factions or just things being attacked for no reason, but now someone did the most wholesome thing imaginable and drew another inugami facing mine and drew them shaking paws.
The recommendations page be like:
I am temporarily back from the dead to share:
just testing. assuming text entered in brackets appears as alt text description
and I’ll be quoting a friend:
I'm all for more protocols to move away from the web but pls be original and actually useful
hi @email@example.com , did something happen to the AP sync from twtxt.net ? My “last toots” seen on mastodon seem quite outdated…
Exactly 10 years ago Kokori’s first release on vinyl was out - and we celebrated with a release party in one of the afternoons of the Entremuralhas festival.
Ten years later, we’re back attending the festival, and this time we see one of the stands selling our latest release, rootkit, on CD! ♡
I hate reading translations. Here’s an example why: the same passage of the English and the Portuguese translation of the same (French) book. Not just the length of the passage shows one of the translations wasn’t faithful, the behavior of the character in one version is the opposite than how he behaves on the other version…
Got a nice hand this weekend!

New profile picture. 🎉
Hey, Amazon, que anti-social!

*yes this also breaks alternative front-end and people without an account, can’t even use the “real site”, at all.
An official FBI document dated January 2021, obtained by the American association “Property of People” through the Freedom of Information Act.
This document summarizes the possibilities for legal access to data from nine instant messaging services: iMessage, Line, Signal, Telegram, Threema, Viber, WeChat, WhatsApp and Wickr. For each software, different judicial methods are explored, such as subpoena, search warrant, active collection of communications metadata (“Pen Register”) or connection data retention law (“18 USC§2703”). Here, in essence, is the information the FBI says it can retrieve:
Apple iMessage: basic subscriber data; in the case of an iPhone user, investigators may be able to get their hands on message content if the user uses iCloud to synchronize iMessage messages or to back up data on their phone.
Line: account data (image, username, e-mail address, phone number, Line ID, creation date, usage data, etc.); if the user has not activated end-to-end encryption, investigators can retrieve the texts of exchanges over a seven-day period, but not other data (audio, video, images, location).
Signal: date and time of account creation and date of last connection.
Telegram: IP address and phone number for investigations into confirmed terrorists, otherwise nothing.
Threema: cryptographic fingerprint of phone number and e-mail address, push service tokens if used, public key, account creation date, last connection date.
Viber: account data and IP address used to create the account; investigators can also access message history (date, time, source, destination).
WeChat: basic data such as name, phone number, e-mail and IP address, but only for non-Chinese users.
WhatsApp: the targeted person’s basic data, address book and contacts who have the targeted person in their address book; it is possible to collect message metadata in real time (“Pen Register”); message content can be retrieved via iCloud backups.
Wickr: Date and time of account creation, types of terminal on which the application is installed, date of last connection, number of messages exchanged, external identifiers associated with the account (e-mail addresses, telephone numbers), avatar image, data linked to adding or deleting.
TL;DR Signal is the messaging system that provides the least information to investigators.
Interesting phishing attempt 🤣
On my way home I went for an enormous detour through the forest to visit the tadpoles pond. There was a dead mole on the middle of the forest road, so I moved this poor little feller to the side.
Later, after a bend I ran across two very beautiful and large deer on the forest path. I immediately stopped and they stood around for 5-10 seconds looking at me before they slowly walked into the forest. Unfortunately, my camera was in the backpack. No chance, lighting would have been brilliant, though.
I just checked on my little mates. It was already too dark for my shitty camera, so please excuse the crappy shots. One slough dried out, so those tadpoles didn’t make it. :-( What a bummer! Especially considering one puddle on the forest path 30 meters further is still going strong. There were very tiny frogs or toads (not sure which) around the big tadpole pond, though. That was super cool to see. I have to come back the next days when the sun is still up.
Opera browser: my final disavowal
While the Internet is being flooded by a record amount of Opera ads, affiliate program members and new hardcore defenders, while I - as someone, who has been using it without a break, for more than 10 years, have had enough and I’ve finally decided to uninstall it.
Part of the reason for this decision, was the new Opera One UI update, that I not only found incredibly ugly and uninspired, but also worsening the already abysmal performance of the browser, as well as adding to the already gigantic pile of bugs within.
All of this, came after a few very frustrating weeks, where the browser constantly crashed, under the weight of its own AI bloat. Every time any text was selected, it was trying to load some ridiculous AI integrations on top, but always crashing and loosing all the opened tabs.
After the UI update, the whole browser somehow felt even more wonky and laggy.
Even for those, who might be fans of the new UI and all the added “features”, that now include a built in generic anime girl game and stupid cartoon noises, upon clicking almost anything, in the “gaming version” of this browser, the growing concerns about this browsers spyware-like connections, to all kinds of mysterious servers, should at least be considered and looked into further. Not to mention the extra problems, that come with them being a Chinese-ran company, storing this data in China.
Quick summary: https://youtu.be/NV8akIgfDqQ
Int the interest of brevity, I won’t go further into the pointless social media arguments they engage in, their past promoting predatory loans, them inserting affiliate links (to the sites you visit through tiles), running a very questionable free VPN service, hidden extensions, that cannot be removed and god knows what else.
Either way Opera, you were an alright browser - many, many years ago. Sadly all I can say now, is “rest in piss, you won’t ever be missed!”.
I ran out of clothes pins once again. Upcycling milk transport cardboard boxes to smaller boxes for screws, nails and such. Becoming my own hardware store.
@firstname.lastname@example.org thank you! I got started on some 3D stuff this morning, we then went to the candy store to get some candy, tonight well have that, and nachos + a movie. and the rest of the day we have been outside :)
here is what I got started on this morning :
just testing some ocean stuff.
@email@example.com 27°C is fucking terrible. :-( We completely rebuilt our natural stone wall. This time with wood ash mortar as an experiment in the base layers before we quickly ran out of it. Let’s see how that goes and how long it lasts. https://lyse.isobeef.org/tmp/natural-stone-wall-with-wood-ash-moyrtar.jpg
what’s wrong with this headline? 🤔🧐
