Now @fastidious dug up this fucking fantastic article on the Global Positioning System. Holy shit my friends, this is the mooooooooooost awesome explanation on GPS I’ve ever come across. Forget about everything you’re about to do today, and take some time to read and enjoy the brilliant illustrations of said article instead. It will really, really, really, really, really blow your mind. If you can’t tell already, I’m totally amazed. And I’m not even half way through yet. It’s sooo cool on so many levels. There’s heaps of brilliant things to discover. Explore yourself and enjoy, you won’t regret it, I will promise you. Now, stop looking at my trash I publish and have a read by this true genius instead! https://ciechanow.ski/gps/

In-reply-to > @lyse take a look at https://charm.sh/. I saw it a while ago in Hacker News, and yesterday it popped around here on a twt from Maya too. Look at Bubble Tea specifically.

@fastidious Hehe! ;-) Well, the result looked promising indeed, that also instantly hooked me in the beginning. However, scrolling was quite laggy I have to say. The “let me render one giant string” referes the the View() string method, that controls how the UI looks like. For my taste that’s not the way I want to build TUI applications. I prefer the, hm, not sure, what’s it really called, so let’s call it “widget based rendering” where I declare my layout by nesting the available widgets so they take care of themselves.

In-reply-to > https://dominikbraun.io/blog/the-difference-between-go-and-rust 👈 Came across this article almost by accident -- Well worth the read 👌

@prologic @movq The original article is heaps better than the response I have to say. Very interesting and I agree. Some things in Go are just half-assed.

The dependency hell is one major pain which got me again today. I wanted to find out why or how a certain dependency got pulled in, so I parsed the go mod graph output and filtered for just that dependency branch in question. Turns out, that there are many branches and all but one don’t even track back to the main software itself. What the hell? Where are the other dependencies (sometimes only differing in version) coming from? It doesn’t make any sense to me at all. They look like they got pulled out of thin air. Need to research further tomorrow.

In-reply-to > I've updated my twtxt-to-html renderer, it now works with arbitrary feeds :D, see https://envs.net/~duriny/cgi-bin/twtxt.sh?file=https://envs.net/~duriny/twtxt.txt, you can replace the 'file=' parameter with your own twtxt.txt

@~duriny Cool! There’s a typo in “param_e_ter” and your script needs some input validation. 8-) https://envs.net/~duriny/cgi-bin/twtxt.sh?file=https://twtxt.net/user/prologic/avatar 502s, I expected more a 400 for PNG data and https://envs.net/~duriny/cgi-bin/twtxt.sh?file=https://twtxt.net/user/prologic/avatar.jpg prints some HTML in the browser.

I’m not sold on the “let me render one giant string” part at all. But there are loooooots of alternatives to choose from. Probably too many.

In-reply-to > Remember? We talked about holy water the other day. Now a mate just shared this funny thing: The sign says: "ASPERSORY Please operate using elbow. No disinfection agent!" Now would be a good time to swap this holy water for functional sanitizer water if you ask me.

@eaplmx That’s a nice illustration and description.


#gm5svtq
In-reply-to > I heard fastidious liking honey. Here is our own honey on the kitchen table, about 3KG jars of it. Way too much for us, and this is just one year of bees from our own honey bees.

@off_grid_living In my opinion honey is not only healthy, but also delicious and tasty. That’s what I meant with yummy. Not sure, if it has any other connotation. @fastidious Ah, thanks, now I remember again!

In-reply-to > @lyse They are there of course, but in the case of the "Conversation view" they are hidden input fields. This is so you don't accidently reply to the wrong conversation of course 😅 But I do agree we need to improve the UX of course! 😂 Make it a bit more obvious what's going on...

@fastidious I had to laugh when reading “Yarn’s Head Honcho”. We should make this the official address. :-)


#dwcza5a
In-reply-to > @fastidious I don't understand why you bookmark this, but it's okay. :-) Of course, being thoughtful with paragraphs is important. No doubt about that. I just wanted to proof or showcase the new possibilities of single and double newlines with the yarn above. That's why I went a bit overboard.

@fastidious Hahahahaa, very nice! :-D You definitely should go the extra mile of highlighting the 16th Januaary 2022 in your wall calendar in red! If you don’t have an analog calendar, you should get one just for this event. You won’t regret it.


#jwjeyja
In-reply-to > @fastidious Oh yeah, that sounds like fun. This is an occasion where you just should act like a child to make things enjoyable. Like jumping in the puddles with or without appropriate foorwear: rubber boots. :-D Also looks like people didn't bother returning their shopping carts. Oh wow, 4°C must be an ice age for you. Today's -2°C to +2°C here.

@fastidious That’s why most (if not all) carts here are locked up with small chains at the trolley station. To use them, you have to insert a 1€ or 2€ coin as pledge. On return at the station you get your money back. This system works pretty good. Maybe that wouldn’t work if cash wasn’t accepted over here as it (yet) is. But you can also use small plastic pledge coins instead of real money.

@eaplmx Wow, in this article are quite some details I never knew or even thought about. Cool! It shows my simple mind, but I found it funny, that they drew the similarity between the ancient holy water dispenser and a toilet. :-D


#euiv6mq
In-reply-to > When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. Or buy lemons and make lemonade. The point is to make lemonade.

@movq Uuuhhh, very sweet! I especially really like your introduction, well written, mate! So what’s your ratio of water and lemon juice? I loved to complete my meal by eating the complete lemon fruit pulp in restaurants when it got served along the meal or drink. Haven’t had that for ages I just realized.

In-reply-to > Not a black and white (or gray scaled) photo. This is happening right now, and I wait for it to slow down to reach my car.

@fastidious Absoluteley, I would have confused this for sanitizer for sure. I mean it’s even a sanitizer dispenser! Never did I see anything like that before. @movq Hahahaahaaa, if the devil can’t read German he might dissolve himself. :-D

@fastidious That would also be more aligned with omitting the hash at the display level. But it has the danger of drifting off from the raw format too much. At least techies who know the specs could get confused if the subject hash is not part of the entered text anymore. The non-techies would probably benefit, though. On the other hand, techies tend to adopt quicker. Just my two cents on that.


#kcahpwq
In-reply-to > Now rejoice children! Finally tt supports multiline twts in the compose form.

@fastidious I don’t understand why you bookmark this, but it’s okay. :-) Of course, being thoughtful with paragraphs is important. No doubt about that. I just wanted to proof or showcase the new possibilities of single and double newlines with the yarn above. That’s why I went a bit overboard.

Yes, following the latest improvements and changes is not an easy task. I also struggle every now and then to keep track of them. But if you have to do that because of professional reasons, like our dear friends working for the @yarn_police, it’s an even bigger burden to be up to date and still allow the perfect amount of leeway for people adapting to the changing environment. But they probably get regular hands-on trainings I bet. Probably instructed by the great masterminds building all this themselves. ;-)

@fastidious It’s raining cats and dogs! As unfortunate as it is for you at the moment, it looks really nice to me in the heated and dry house. Too bad it’s not a drive-through mall. :-/ Reminds me on the cover I had to seek last week.


#tdjrgvq

Remember? We talked about holy water the other day. Now a mate just shared this funny thing: Nope, that dispenser doesn't provide not sanitizer but holy water! The sign says: “ASPERSORY Please operate using elbow. No disinfection agent!” Now would be a good time to swap this holy water for functional sanitizer water if you ask me.


#td3sonq
In-reply-to > @lyse off-topic completely, but you implemented line breaks! I believe this was not possible for you to do before, right? Anyway, very nice! 🥳 (Emoji face with party hat, blowing a party horn)

@fastidious Thank you very much for nudging me to tackle this! I never thought, that I would compose twts this long that would make newlines a necessity. In view of the fact that I’m a small typography and typesetting fetishist it’s even more embarassing that it took me this long. But oh well. Good things come to those who wait.


#dlbh55q
In-reply-to > @lyse how fitting! Did he intentionally matched the beak's colour on the scarf's penguin name? I see that not only you, but the sibling is also on the creative side. I think good parenthood might have something to do with it. On the side track, that background catches my attention each and every single time I see it. It is lovely!

@fastidious Very good question, I have to ask him. Not sure, if he still remembers. We’ll see. ;-)

Absolutely, can’t complain about my childhood.

Thank you very much, this is probably the closest you’ve ever seen my video conference background. ;-) I’m also a huge fan of it. Turned out better than expected. And I’m quite surprised, that the disks didn’t crack. I started from the premise that they all will split up for sure soon. Glad I was wrong.


#euf5ffq
In-reply-to > @xavavu “I knit a scarf once” — that’s a feat! To someone who has zero knitting skills (me!) that’s certainly something. I would be boasting about it with anyone I meet. “Hey, nice meeting you! Just so you know, I knit a scarf once!” I would say, whilst putting my nose up a little.

@fastidious @prologic My brother crocheted a scarf for my penguin about two decades ago. Penguin with a scarf saying (Sorry, the lighting is rubbish.) When we had that craft in fourth grade I wanted to make myself a lasso and chain stiched several meters of red yarn. Unfortunately, it got tangled up very badly and I couldn’t get it sorted, so I sadly abandoned this endeavor after multiple days of work.


#ywrx4ca
In-reply-to > As I was putting the trash out this evening there was this strange orange glow the sunset was putting on the clouds and on to the side wall of our house 😳

@movq @fastidious Yep! The evening sun often makes for a real nice red lighting everywhere. Everything instantly feels so warm with the red. Photographers love it, too.


#ycwgvta
In-reply-to > I agree. Malay pirates are the worse. I know someone—can’t recall who was at the moment, but that’s irrelevant—who told me he was once captured by one of the smallest Malay pirate ships. He was robed, of course, and then he was subject to the most abominable jokes, bundled together with the cheapest alcoholic beverages you can find in the Pacific rim, while a monkey jumped on his shoulders and head. It was torture!

@fastidious And they all lived happily ever after. Hahaha, this is a great fairy tale.


#pwwbh7a
In-reply-to > @lyse off-topic completely, but you implemented line breaks! I believe this was not possible for you to do before, right? Anyway, very nice! 🥳 (Emoji face with party hat, blowing a party horn)

@fastidious You xinxed the Yarn Police the other day on IRC. I’m so sorry and make a vow to leave yarn kidnapping aside from now on. And no, I didn’t implement newlines in tt yet. I manually edited my feed using Vim: Ctrl+V, u, 2, 0, 2, 8. Multiple times. But I think I will start now adding this support after I’m done with the large backlog. But now I’m too lazy to do the same for this twt. Sorry. Probably getting fined for this as well.


#5lc25tq
In-reply-to > I think we should introduce Hiccup to yarn... LOL

Bwhahahahhahaaaaa, this is really great satire! I especially love the “made by a PRO” statement.

Back then you needed to wait but it hasn’t changed in the meantime. Now we have the technology to quickly transfer and render things, but we still don’t get fast response times, because people think they need to introduce silly animations everywhere.

In-reply-to > Today's search game is quite simple. Find the bird. I reduced exactly 200 photos down to 14. There are 13 more. The sunny 5°C felt quite hot, I had to open my jacket and take off beanie, scarf and gloves. But when the sun had set I was very lucky to have my extra gear. Going up and down that mountain path was a bit tricky today, some stretches were just solid ice.

@fastidious @prologic Well, birds in wide angle shots are quite hard to spot I believe. In 6 birds would be less than a pixel in size over at those trees. Honestly, I truely believed, that everybody would directly start at 1 because that’s by faaaaar the most promising one. Anyways, glad you had some fun! :-D


#u4y4d6q
In-reply-to > 👋 Yarn.social Video conf today? 12:00pm UTC? 🤔

@movq Immerhin ist „halb neun“ überall eindeutig, und das obwohl ihr nicht „halb vor neun“ sagt, was ja besser in die strikte vor-/nach-Systematik passen würde. Könnt ja prinzipiell auch „halb nach neun“, also 21:30 Uhr sein. ;-)

Gerade aus dem Halb-Neun-Beispiel heraus finde ich es bemerkenswert, wenn mit viertel und ggf. auch dreiviertel ein Problem herrscht. Im Falle von „halb neun“ oder 20:30 Uhr gibt’s ja genauso wenig eine 9 wie bei „viertel neun“/20:15 Uhr.

Genau, es gibt nur Viertelschritte, Drittel sind mir auch noch nie untergekommen, obwohl’s eigentlich richtig gut funktionieren würd.

18:20 Uhr wäre hier einfach „fünf nach viertel siebene“, „zwanzig nach sechs” oder „achtzehn (Uhr) zwanzig“. Zu 18:10 Uhr kann man „fünf vor viertel siebene“, „zehn nach sechse“ oder „achtzehn (Uhr) zehn“ sagen. Vor/nach wird bei uns nur gebraucht, wenn’s genauer als Viertelstunden sein soll.

Bei mir ist es so halb-halb. Ich nehme sowohl die umgangsprachliche als auch die explizite Form. Wenn ich drandenke, dass ich mit einem „Neigschmeckten“ rede oder schreibe, dann wähle ich auch immer die explizite Form.


#q32duca
In-reply-to > 👋 Yarn.social Video conf today? 12:00pm UTC? 🤔

@prologic Right, this English time system is totally messed up, it doesn’t make any sense: …10am, 11am, 12pm, 1pm, 2pm… Why does pm start with 12 and not end with 12? Modulo, yes. So does this work with 0am and 0pm, too or are zeros illegal in that am/pm notation? Anyways, I cannot make it today. @movq Genau, die – ich nenne sie mal schwäbischen Uhrzeiten – sind komplett logisch, denn sie werden immer aufgerundet, wie bei einem Kuchen auch. Niemand sagt „Ein viertel vor ganzer Kuchen ist noch übrig“, sondern „Ein dreiviertel Kuchen ist noch übrig“. Das dreiviertel bezieht sich also auf den aufgerundeten, ganzen Kuchen. Darum ist es nur sinnvoll das auch mit halben und viertel Stunden zu tun. Immer auf die nächste volle Stunde bezogen. Und nur um das vollständig abzuschließen, kann „viertel neune“ im richtigen System auch 08:15 Uhr in der Früh sein. Aber das ist normal aus dem Kontext dann klar, ob morgens oder abends gemeint ist. Wieso die Nordlichter „viertel neune“ als 09:15 Uhr oder 21:15 Uhr auffassen, erschließt sich mir überhaupt nicht, also nicht einmal im Ansatz. Deinem Beispiel entnehme ich, dass bei Dir oben das auch wie bei mir hier unten aufgefasst wird, oder?


#grty7ga
In-reply-to > @prologic I made a quick PDF with my POV on the Reply button. Please feel free to ignore it, ask for more info, explain why I'm crazy 🤪, etc.

@prologic Aha! I now get the idea behind it but to the user this is really weird and inconsistent. It just looks like you’re starting off a new root twt. At least that’s what I was thinking when I encountered that. Fun fact: Every now and then I just want to mention somebody in a new root twt, so I just reply to a conversation that person had participated in and remove all other mentions and the twt subject. This way I don’t have to type out or copy-paste the mention myself. In tt that is.

@fastidious @prologic Ta! Haha, it’s a great family game. Selecting the photo to look at was straight forward, right?
