In-reply-to » Regarding https://www.uninformativ.de/blog/postings/2024-05-23/0/POSTING-en.html: I remember using Star $Something back in the days. I don't remember the exact name anymore and none of the screenshots of StarOffice look familiar. Hmm. I have a green UI in mind. Not sure if I completely hallucinate it or whether that was actually the case. It was a commercial software, not freeware, we had to buy it, I think.

@movq@www.uninformativ.de No, LibreOffice didn’t exist back then. :-D The user interface was somehow green. No clue.

TeXNicCenter is either dead or just finished. All features implemented and all bugs fixed. That’s the thing, one doesn’t know with completed software. ;-)

(Lol, there was a fuzz on my screen. Just perfectly aligned, so it looked like an accent grave and I was wondering how the quote got corrupted. :-D)

Agreed, a lot of people don’t need the real document structure markup.

I actually cannot remember when I wrote my last letter using LaTeX. Maybe it was some kind of termination letter for a service that could not be cancelled online. It must have been a few years ago. The last “proper-ish” use of LibreOffice was at the end of last year when printing a quiz and map for the scouts I think.

Today, I was in a meeting where a workmate gave a talk. I noticed the LaTeX beamer look and feel and was intrigued. He said, that he cobbled together the corporate design, but it’s not ready for official use yet. But that’s really cool. My last prepared presentation with LaTeX beamer was in my previous company a few years back. But I didn’t care about corporate design at all.

My first LaTeX distribution was MiKTeX with – if I remember correctly – the TeXNicCenter. A bit later on Linux I used Kile as my LaTeX editor. LaTeX produces the worst error messages I’ve ever come across. So compile early and often. But the results are amazing.

I know people who never make use of headings and the like to this day. Bold, italics, underline etc. is all they use. Despite writing larger documents. Admittedly, it took me a while to figure out and appreciate all the advantages of actually marking up the document structure properly.

These days I rarely reach for LaTeX or LibreOffice to craft new stuff in my private life. Simple text files is usually it. RST and Markdown if it has to be more fancy.

In-reply-to » Oh dear, I got plenty of spam – if not even worse – on one of my jabber IDs. One sender JID was on exploit.net or exploit.im or something like that (I already forgot).

@movq@www.uninformativ.de I don’t know. I thought that I had to accept beeing added to the contact list before somebody could message me, but apparently, that’s not the case. Let’s see how that unfolds.

In-reply-to » Two mates and I went on a 25km hike yesterday to the Wasserberg (lit. Water Mountain) and Fuchseck (lit. Fox Corner) on the edge of the Swabian Alb. They arrived by train and of course it was delayed by half an hour, "due to limited availability of tracks". That was a first one, I never heard that reason before. Another train had a breakdown in a train station and later my mates' train had to be rebooted, too. That restart alone took 10 minutes. O_o Software problem, it can't be helped.

@movq@www.uninformativ.de Ah ja, der Holgi. ;-)

In-reply-to » Quite proud of what we built :) I really like the result. Media

@stigatle@yarn.stigatle.no Oh cool, that looks nice! Great job. Would he be able to jump the fence when standing on his hut’s roof? How does the door lock work? Also, that’s some giant bone. :-) I bet he loves that one.

I couldn’t help myself but notice that it appears your stairs and the left of the deck need some countersinks for the screws. 8-)

Hmm, didn’t yarnd automatically inline image URLs back in the days? Looks like I have to resort back to markdown images again.
