In-reply-to » Sooo finished for today. - got my subscription for the NYTimes working again - got all my stuff at work checked in and handed over to colleagues - one last day at work will hopefully just a relaxing and smooth one with saying goodbye before leave starts! - really happy how the first half of the year went by - looking forward to the long leave period. oh boy you have no idea how much I am looking forward to this

@carsten@yarn.zn80.net Oh yeah, a long leave sounds awesome. Enjoy! How long will you be able to do just what you want to?

My workday didn’t went so smoothly for me. When implementing tests for a hotfix I refactored some test helpers and then found out that a mock structure was wrongly implemented for ages. After fixing it, three tests failed. Two could be solved by fixing the test setups. But the third test failure turned out to be even another severe bug in one of our production code functions. Good old nil pointer dereference panics. Somebody thought it’s a good idea to rewrite (nil, ErrNotFound) of type (*Data, error) to (nil, nil). After handling the returned error in the caller (in this case, there was no error anymore) nobody had the possible nil pointer on their radar. Bad design. To be reworked in the future after bringing the hotfix on its way.

I then also found another inconsistency of our storage implementations. When removing something that does not exist, some return nil, some ErrNotFound instead. Oh dear. This will cause some aftermath, I tell you.

At least all of those side quests didn’t happen in the wild yet.

In-reply-to » Media Welded up the horizontal turntable for the wire netting. Because it moves width ways the progress is much slower, about 1.2 to 1.5 m each time. Not sure how I will navigate over the fruit trees, soon to be a challenge.

@off_grid_living@twtxt.net Nice! Maybe you need a second one of your moving platforms. Or install two cables from one end to the other and then roll your wire netting over them.

Today, I brought my camera along once again. Right at the beginning I saw my first slow worm of the day, the second one on my way home.

The tadpole pond was nearly empty. When approaching it, hundreds of not even fingernail sized frogs or toads were jumping towards me. I knew, that there are larger fish in the pond, but I’ve only heard them so far, never seen them. Until today. At least five large individuals about 30-40 centimeters in length. One might have been even half a meter long.

Banning dragonflies on film is nearly impossible. 11 is the “best” result, not only can you see its shadow, but also its head at the very top. When going home I saw six deer in total at the woodland margins. Spending two hours at the pond was absolutely worth it.

In-reply-to » PSA: If you happen to have bottles like these, don’t throw them away. When they’re empty, you can (often) clean them and fill ’em up with water instead. Now you can spray your face or your arms with a very fine fog of water. Works wonders when it’s hot, it’s basically artificial sweat. Instant cooling! 🥵

@movq@www.uninformativ.de I’ve done that in the past myself. Absolutely perfect.

In-reply-to » @lyse It might look boring, but an MRI could tell us a lot about what’s going on inside the mouth and at the back of the tongue. That’s where overtone selection/amplification happens, which plays a major role, especially in these kinds of crazy vocals. Super low growls or “demonic” voices or whatever, they all boil down to overtone selection that our brain isn’t used to, so we’re perceiving them as weird and baffling. A good example might be this, I guess: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JU4dDsUc5p0

@movq@www.uninformativ.de It’s an x-ray through a metal hand plane. :-)

I just ran across this one. I’m loving it! https://images.scrolller.com/atto/old-hand-planar-ejtbsjcpxm.png
