@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org Switching shops isn’t that easy. The next one is in the next village, so I’d have to drive there. 🫤

I’m still not convinced that they’ll keep doing it. Let’s wait a week or two. 😏

I finally found the NASM assembler.

https://nasm.us/index.php

I had heard that name before, many times, but somehow never looked into it. Weird. 🤨🤔

This is the kind of program I was looking for.

  1. It is free software. Especially in the DOS ecosystem, free/libre software is a very scarce resource.
  2. It’s a small command line program, not a huge behemoth.
  3. Documentation appears to be well written.
  4. It can even cross-compile DOS binaries from Linux.

In-reply-to » @lyse I’m having a hard time as well. 😅 They’re very, very similar to me. Here, he says “a ten year rebuild”, which sounds like “tin year”:

@movq@www.uninformativ.de I just listened ten (lol) times very carefully, but it’s much closer to “ten” than “tin” I think. Hahahaha, the dickheads video is fantastic! :-D Can’t tell if I would have understood that correctly if I weren’t reading the subtitles.

@movq@www.uninformativ.de Oh dear, you should probably switch shops. At least the Verbraucherzentrale backs us up here.

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org When leaving. The cashier wants to take a look inside your bag. (Or rather: Management made the cashier do it. He wasn’t particularly keen on doing it.)

Turns out, the whole thing is probably illegal:

I’m really curious how long they’ll keep doing it. 😅

In-reply-to » QOTD: What are your thoughts on nostr?

Something I’ve noticed about the Nostr people is that they aren’t the same as the software minimalism people. It seems like it’s all JavaScript, Go, and Rust with dependency counts in the hundreds.

In-reply-to » Something is wrong with me. My eyes fell on the onions and I thought, mmmmm, those apples look delicious. But I'm now eating a real apple.

ARGH! All tests passed, but once I ran the exact same scenario in the real application, numbers didn’t line up anymore. What the heck, how in the world is this even possible!? Turns out I haven’t committed the changes to the database, that’s why I still could see them perfectly fine in my debug session, but the application’s session of course didn’t. Took me four (!) hours to figure this out. Yeah, I really have to go to bed now. Good night.

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org

I fear it’s a rather complicated protocol.

The core protocol looks very simple but I’m sure you can get in the weeds with extensions.

you can’t really change your keys without losing your identity

I think you’re right but that seems reasonable to me. Your public key is your identity, similar to certain cryptocurrencies or Tor hidden services. Why would you want to change your key without changing your identity?

In-reply-to » Getting stuff done today.. Bought more fencing, so that the dog can stay outside on the terrace without jumping over to our neighbor, so I'll get that up soon. He has usually been in the garden, but that has been dug into a mudhole by the dog, so when it's rainy\wet etc he can now stay on the terrace. Other then that I'll probably do some coding on my multiplayer game today, since our kids are busy with friends etc.

@stigatle@yarn.stigatle.no Cool. I was coding today all day long.

@prologic@twtxt.net Are you already sick of your fast internet? :-D Enjoy your holidays!

@prologic@twtxt.net Yeah, I wonder how long they’ll keep doing that. 🤔 Lots of customers were complaining. On the other hand, Germans are also very obedient (cough, cough), so almost everybody dutifully opened their various bags and purses. 😂🥴

In-reply-to » QOTD: What are your thoughts on nostr?

@mckinley@twtxt.net Brings up a few interesting points. But I fear it’s a rather complicated protocol. I read through a few pages on that site, but I haven’t seen a real specification for it. I immediately thought that you can’t really change your keys without losing your identity. Basically the same as with changing feed URLs over here. Maybe slightly better, but not much.
