Went on a great 20km hike to the Wäscherschloss (lit. Launderer Castle) with my mate. Unfortunately, the castle was closed (only opens on Sundays and public holidays), so we had to peek under the door with our cameras.

Image

Sunny and a few clouds, very windy, my hat blew off a few times, perfect 20°C hiking weather. Could have been a few degrees less, though. We walked through some beautiful scenery, especially when it is lit up by the sun. Really gorgeous views and paths. I should go over there more often. Last time was almost exactly two years ago.

The one steep foot path in the forest had 60cm deep canyons from the flood two weeks ago. Absolutely crazy! The burried post cable caution tape even was revealed. That path didn’t look like a path anymore at all.

At home I had to remove a tick. Those fucking bastards!

Very humid 20°C, cloudy and partially raining. That was today’s weather when we went into the woods and paid or backyard mountain a visit: https://lyse.isobeef.org/waldspaziergang-2024-06-14/ Not very many folks around, looked like they all feared the liquid sunshine. The visibiliy was fairly mixed. Pretty clear in the west, we could see the Stuttgart TV tower 38.55km away (04). But very hazy to the north (03) when a rain cloud appeared.

In-reply-to » Got a new pack of rosin for my double bass. There was a large bubble of air trapped inside. 🥴 It slowly made its way up over the course of a couple of days and now it finally burst. 😅

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org Indeed, it’s quite translucent. 😃

It depends on the type of rosin, though. The one that I used before is basically opaque and also much harder:

Image

I intentionally went for the softer rosin this time, because I find it easier to use. It’s stickier and can be applied to the bow much easier.

In-reply-to » Couple of days ago I made a small patch to yarnd (this pod effectively runs main) that filtered out "inactive users", hard-coded to be LastSeenAt > 90 days and not bother fetching feeds for anything they follow. This has had a dramatic impact on the resources used by this pod (twtxt.net) -- See screenshtos.

@movq@www.uninformativ.de Right, this makes sense. Also, @bender@twtxt.net reported the same over in https://twtxt.net/conv/ilupk5q. That whole conversation looks like that for me:

Image

Bender edits in red, notices in fuchsia (probably edits and leaves the message unchanged), and prologic acknowledges in orange. This conversation over here is marked in lime. Yeah, tt doesn’t filter out duplicates. Maybe I should implement that.

These 24°C were brutal. The cow in 03 was standing in the bog, not sure why she liked this brackish water. It sounded “tchlk, schlk” when she moved around in that mud (what do you call that?). Some of these canyons, like 14, are over 30cm deep. Wow. In 15 at a height of two meters, a torn rag hangs in the tree in the creek bed. It’s crazy to see how high the flood came in 16 with all the washed up stuff in the hedge.

In-reply-to » The river upstream kissed the hundred-year flood level (462 cm) the other day. https://www.hvz.baden-wuerttemberg.de/pegel.html?id=00265 (To me that link looks broken, but maybe it works on other browsers. :-?)

Went down to the creek and there’s a skip in front of every house. Oh dear. Normally, the creek is a few meters below the tree line in 01-03. But as you can see, it went over the fields, several tens of meters wide.

Image

The fire engine house next to the creek was also flooded. But the operational capability of the fire brigade was not affected as they already responded.

It’s crazy how the relatively shallow field road on top of the hill looks. It was already in bad shape, but that’s now another level. The drainage area is rather small, but tons of gravel is now in the meadows. 10cm deep holes and ditches in the road. The very loose gravel is difficult to cycle and walk on.

I’m on a hill, far away from the river, but with all that rain and soaked ground the water finally came into the basement where the cables enter the house over night. Luckily, just 15 mm high, so it didn’t jump the doorsill into other rooms. And it was all clear, no muddy mess, all nicely filtered through the earth, gravel and sand. My shop vac is also designed to work as a wet vacuum cleaner, so that was really helpful.

In-reply-to » I've ripped off it's GPU about a year ago to rescue another computer ... Now I'm stuck with only SSH to play with it. Since it came with just a VGA port for display and my monitor takes all but THAT!

What’s all of this about? one may ask…

Well I’ve been itching to toy around with a BSD on actual hardware and away from the comfort of VMs. NetBSD, FreeBSD, OpenBSD… It doesn’t matter. I just want to “Make it feel… Make it feel alive AGAIN!”

In-reply-to » @prologic well, I think OP mother tongue isn’t English, so certainly not an encoding I might be familiar with.

@prologic@twtxt.net Thank
you! and here’s a twt with the said random characters, since I’ve been
cleaning them up manually, earlier before scp-ing my twtxt.txt file. And
maybe a screenshot of how things look in my editor?

Those new lines are added automatically as I type (except for the ones

In-reply-to » I've been out a few hours again. I came across a dozen or so forest mice. I heard tons of squeaking and saw a lighting fast moving seething mass under leaves and groves. It was impossible to capture anything but I could watch it for two, three minutes. They even seemed to come as close as 20 centimeters judging by the rustle and moving plant leaves. Pretty cool.

I like the self-shot in the mud: https://lyse.isobeef.org/waldspaziergang-2024-04-07/43.jpg

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.

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.

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…
