for i doin shell scripts. Turns out, that walks over all positional arguments. So I reckon my
for i in "$@"; docan now be shorter from now on. Very interesting in that detailled explanation to see all the – at least to me – inconsistent handling of semicolons and line breaks.
@firstname.lastname@example.org You’re good, it’s POSIX-compliant. ;-) I also was taught
$* first instead of
"$@". Looks like a common thing. :-) Shell has just soooooo many quirks and inconsistencies, it is quite hard to master it. But we’ll never get rid of it.
@email@example.com Very cool! I have something similar: https://git.isobeef.org/lyse/gelbariab/-/blob/master/rss-proxys/youtubeuploadsfeed.py
@firstname.lastname@example.org Oh! :-D It’s exactly what it looks like, it’s an old castle built around 1250 and burned down when hit by lightning in 1865: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hohenrechberg_Castle
@email@example.com Oh, I actually thought that the pin might be some kind of a reference. But I didn’t figure out it was Czech. I guess the dog was doing dog stuff and hence especially the white got a bit dirty. :-) Yeah, they sometimes have some strange choices for their cosplay.
You’ll never guess what I learned from https://www.uninformativ.de/blog/postings/2023-11-19/0/POSTING-en.html. I’ve never seen
for i do in shell scripts. Turns out, that walks over all positional arguments. So I reckon my
for i in "$@"; do can now be shorter from now on. Very interesting in that detailled explanation to see all the – at least to me – inconsistent handling of semicolons and line breaks.
@firstname.lastname@example.org Ah, that makes sense now.
@email@example.com Cool, what uniform is he wearing?
@firstname.lastname@example.org What do you mean by “cattle looking buildings”, which photo number? I don’t see any buildings that look like cows. Or what is the other meaning of “cattle”?
@email@example.com Hmmm, random sort for the genres? I also do miss power metal. :-) But I generally listen to music that’s on my own computer. No waste of network resources and just works all the time.
@firstname.lastname@example.org For a web UI such a button sounds quite convenient. The only downside is that spammers also like that link. :-( So if built into e.g. yarnd, it should be probably opt-in and it might only really work well with single-user instances. At least it’s not obvious to me which address that e-mail reply button would use when multiple people are involved in a conversation. The original author’s? The last commentator’s? Reply to all of them? Note that I didn’t give this any real thought. This is only what popped up right in my head. :-)
@email@example.com That’s a pity, of course.
@firstname.lastname@example.org Hmm, that sounds a bit strange to me. Why isn’t all weaponry limited to the same dates? Weird historical reasons I guess?
I just measured on a map that I hiked 22.5 km in 5:30 hours today. And I took 723 photos (yes, I’m totally insane; for your viewing pleasure I reduced them to only 96), which resulted in a lot of stops and a bunch of wasted time. I reckon I haven’t done this trip often enough, because I took the wrong turn-off – twice, on the way there and back – which cost me several extra kilometers. Well, I was just enjoying myself in nature, so that wasn’t bad at all. It just meant that I wouldn’t be home before dark. And that’s totally fine with me. Maybe next time I care to remember to walk the more direct route. We’ll see.
The golden autumn is so fricking beautiful. It only rained in the morning, so I left right after lunch. We then had a good mix of clouds and sunshine. At the beginning, the sun was out for at most 10 seconds in a row before the next cloud covered it up again. My camera takes longer than that to boot, so I missed a ton of opportunities. But judging by the number of photos, it didn’t hurt at all.
9 and 10 is a common kestral. I could figure that out based on another photo which had good colors but was very blurry. Unfortuntately, the deer in 30-32 were too far away. A few hundred meters I’d say. I had to think of Rapunzel in 84-86. :-)
After dawn and one and a half completely drained batteries I walked past a bunch of trees and wondered what kind of birds were sitting on them. They didn’t look like ravens or something similar. Suddenly, 20-30 red kites flew up (their V-shaped tails made it crystal clear). I have never seen so many of them in a flock. Not even close. That was super cool to watch. Much later after dark I also saw a bat flying over my head. Nice way to end this trip.
@email@example.com The only reliable way to let the other party know is to write an e-mail or any other out of bounds communication mechansim. There’s just the User-Agent header in the discoverability extension of Twtxt itself that comes close: https://twtxt.readthedocs.io/en/latest/user/discoverability.html But it requires feed operators to actually play along and check. Active pushes are prone to spam, so I actually view the lack thereof as a good thing.
@firstname.lastname@example.org Oh well. At least the deer like it I guess. :-) So hunting season is already over then? I don’t even know how it works here.
@email@example.com I see. I only used these low-tech mechanical timers back in the days: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/9/9b/Zeitschaltuhr_mechanisch.jpg But it never got switched around to other power points.
@firstname.lastname@example.org Super scenic, I’m loving it! Btw. your server seems to have a really slow internet connection. Download tops around 80 KB/s. The medium is much lower, though.
@email@example.com What the hell!? O_o
@firstname.lastname@example.org There are a couple of horse farms around here, so one does actually meet horses on the forest roads every now and then. I know a few people who ride horses. Both owning a horse or just hacking.
Oh wow, this is fascinating! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bESkfkqxCDA
@email@example.com Tada! I didn’t track anything, but I reckon you’re ahead of me now. Congratulations! :-)
@firstname.lastname@example.org Not a lot, no. :-)
@email@example.com No, you’re not allowed to ride horses down that path.
But you’re also not supposed to cycle on forest roads that are narrower than two meters in BaWü.
Yeah, super calming. When I went to bed yesterday night, it also rained quite a bit and the drizzling was very pleasant. I quickly fell asleep.
@firstname.lastname@example.org This is so cool! :-)
@email@example.com Oh snow! I didn’t know you could host images on amazon.com. It takes a few seconds to load, but eventually I received a photo. Did you catch a buck?
