dev woes 

TFW you spend 3h figuring out why a simple json deepEqual is failing -- only to realize that the testing framework was replacing nbsp's with regular spaces in its logs, making it look like it's complaining that two identical strings are not identical.

Oh Göttin... da hat @Lilith aber was zusammen recherchiert 😂

Unter anderem mit nem AirTag und Anrufen nachts um 2 Uhr bei vermeintlichen Geheimdienstmitarbeitern.

After Uri Bram requested ideas for a Xmas gift for the Ghost team I teamed up with Alix Roberts and co-wrote with her "The Ghost Galop" (which she arranged and sung), drawing inspiration from the blog post 'What it feels like to be an open-source maintainer' by @nolan. It's a little late, but like much #opensource software, "It's ready when it's ready".

Wir bedanken uns 3.000 mal für das Interesse hier im Fediverse an unserer Arbeit 🙂
Und damit das weiter so bleibt, werden wir alle hier bald mal zu Wort kommen lassen. Denn wir haben uns für 2022 eine Menge vorgenommen!
Schönes Restwochenende wünscht das Social Media Team vom BfDI. / ÖA

Hey, if you are queer, do painting (or alike) and are open for commissions:

If I can find some of your work via your profile, maybe fav this toot and I‘ll have a look and then maybe dm you about what I‘m having in mind.
I generally trust your rates are justified so I won’t try to negotiate here.

❓ Question 1: Do you type URLs into the browser's address bar frequently? (say, a few times per month)

❓ Question 2: Would your peers describe you as a "computer/tech person" rather than the opposite?

🔁 Boosts welcome, to reach "tech persons" and "non tech persons" alike. 😉

IME it’s almost impossible to tell an Anglophone manager that they’re making a mistake. If you’re too plain-spoken you’re a troublemaker. If you’re diplomatic they just won’t hear it or will assume you’re making a statement about your own competence, never theirs.

“I don’t think your plan will have the outcomes you expect”

Manager: “Don’t be so hard on yourself. I’m sure it’s well within your capabilities, but I’ll see what I can do to get you some help”

Some very good news, as part of our NLnet funding they provide us with access to accessibility experts, and while the amount of time we receive is likely not to be enough for a full audit there would still be that relationship established and we could ask if we could pay them directly for additional work.


TeX in real world production 

The only thing worse than footnotes are multiple references to the same footnote, from entirely different parts of a book.

orca, firefox 

oh, I should've added that orca now works with chromium-browsers, too (thanks to Joanie getting paid to fix chromium 🥂 ).

Kennt jemand eine Webseite/Software o.ä., wo man miniatur- #neuronale Netze visualisiert beim Lernen und Entscheiden "beobachten" kann?

Soll geeignet sein für #Unterricht in Klasse 5/6.

Corona, Bonn 

Hat die Stadt aufgegeben / aufgeben müssen? zeigt Inzidenz von ca 821.

Die CWA (kein screenshot) sagt zeigt 744. zeigt Inzidenz bei ca 441, aber wohl immer noch Stand Freitag. Und kaum Datenpunkte in der visualisierung - das schafft Vertrauen.


Es gibt bei arte noch bis Ende Februar eine Dokumentation, quasi eine Verfilmung des Buches. Auszüge werden vorgelesen, mit entsprechendem Bildmaterial unterlegt und mit Interviews untermauert. Das Buch hat die Brutalität von Kapitalismus und Gesellschaft nur angedeutet, der Film setzt dem ganzen noch eins drauf.

Es brennt zu wenig.

I'm guessing I'm the last to find out but just in case anyone else wonders: apt can still install a firefox that works.

(The caches are different though so all my tabs and containers are from back when I upgraded to ubuntu 21.10 😭 but it'll do for a few demos.)

Finally figured out what broke speech synthesis and orca with FF -- ubuntu switched to the FF snap package and it's a bit borked

Okay there's something really cool I've just learned. If you are continuously recording air pressure e.g. as part of your home automation setup or a weather station then you should really check the data of the last 24h.
You should be able to spot the pressure wave from the volcanic explosion in Tonga earlier today.

It reached my setup in Kaiserslautern at about 20:30.

Those of you who write Free Software, do you primarily:
