In-reply-to » @prologic idk, where I work everyone wants to use PowerPoint and they want my slide decks. If you don't have that problem, good!

Yeah I totally understand even if I don’t agree with it and find it insanely stupid that we continue to use these crappy ass proprietary tools 🤦‍♂️

In-reply-to » @ocdtrekkie Something that we are always fighting is when assets are shared from vendor to vendor, making sure they look the same, and sometimes when we go from a "damaged" version to a "clean" one between seasons things drift. Seven and Raffi just had it repainted.

@virtualbri@mastodon.online Yeah, I was thinking less about the cloak angle specifically as Geordi’s statement all the Starfleet ships are linked and call out to each other. It made it sound like a non-Starfleet ship (or an older one even) would be an obvious choice.

In-reply-to » @virtualbri Speaking of new hero models, I am also surprised La Sirena wasn't used here for similar reasons... I think it was noted it has a new texture this season, even though it apparently never flies? ...Yet, perhaps?

In-reply-to » @ocdtrekkie Yeah, as a peek behind the curtain, not only new sets which are hugely expensive but a new hero Bounty CGI model, which the Museum version definitely is not for what we do need to do with it.

In-reply-to » @virtualbri I still think if all the Starfleet ships are networked (because they forgot about the incident in Prodigy already, apparently), it would make far more sense to abandon the Titan-A and to have used the Bounty itself to rescue the away team.

In-reply-to » @georgetakei Seeing as the shooter was trans, is this a failure of gun control or a failure of mental health support? And I am guessing this is the part where all discussion on this topic dies, as the shooter doesn't fit the demographic usually associated with shootings; although, perhaps not as true as it was with the mass shootings of late.

@connorabruce@mastodon.social@georgetakei@universeodon.com I mean, obviously the Republicans’ attack on trans rights and refusal to provide gender-affirming care definitely can cause a mental health crisis, but a single incident is not much to draw a position from.

In-reply-to » Go Interfaces - HedgeDoc -- Slide dkec on Go Interfaces I'm presenting today 👌

@prologic@twtxt.net Cool. Well, when I think of classic interfaces, then Reader, Writer, Seeker, Closer, Stringer, Formatter come to mind. Unless my definition of adverbs is completely off, these are nouns in my point of view. Granted, they end in er and start with a verb, but they’re nouns. Adverbs are something different: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adverb Anyways, good writeup. :-)

In-reply-to » Germany Urges Loophole for EU Ban on Fossil-Fuel Cars: Synthetic Carbon-Captured Fuels CNN reports: When EU lawmakers voted to ban the sale of new combustion engine cars in the bloc by 2035, it was a landmark victory for climate. In February, the European Parliament approved the law. All that was needed was a rubber stamp from the bloc's political leaders.

@marado@twtxt.net Ahh yeah I remember that Yarn well 👌

It’s very frustrating that between large corporations and nations nobody (including Australia who are some of the worst offenders here with lack of climate action) are taking this very seriously 🤦‍♂️

Like can we just stop mining and burning Coal already?! 🤔

(for reference, here’s me whining on how the measure was already insufficient last year).

unfortunately, it isn’t “just Germany” the whole EU seems OK with ignoring the urgency science proves the sittuation demands. And this was already an watered-down decision…

In-reply-to » Go Interfaces - HedgeDoc -- Slide dkec on Go Interfaces I'm presenting today 👌

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org Thanks for the review! I’ll quickly fix this up before the presentation today (midday) 😅 In terms of conventions and naming however, yes these are actually called “adverbs”. An adverb is a noun that describes a verb, usually be putting an “er” on the end of a verb. But thi doesn’t always work and sometimes it’s hard to do, so that’s why ServeHTTP instead of Handle() for the Handler interface. Even though there is the Handle and HandleFunc function types 🤷‍♂️

I thought Germany was a pretty progressive country 🤔

Doesn’t feel like that to me, but of course it depends on which country you’re comparing us to. 😅

I didn’t follow this closely (because I lost all hope when it comes to Germans and their cars), but it looks like this e-fuel stuff is mostly the result of the efforts of one party? Or maybe the others like it too and just blame that party for it. 🤣

In-reply-to » A few bad shots of a red kite circling over the neighborhood. 02 is shortly after two kites had an areal combat. One high speed crashed into the other one twice from greater altitudes.

@prologic@twtxt.net @movq@www.uninformativ.de Thanks, mates! It was indeed cool to watch, but also a bit frightening. Quite violent. I reckon they were fighting over prey. I only saw it on the photos (3 & 4), one had a mouse or smomething in its beak. I’m speculating that the other might have thought that this meal belongs to itself as it was caught in its own territory or so. Thus, maybe by crashing into the rival the hope was that the prey is dropped on impact, so it can be stolen back by the rightful owner. Just guessing, I don’t know. I really like red kites, they look super cool in my opinion. Their iconic v-shaped tail makes them unmistakable for others.

@prologic@twtxt.net Nice! A few things (I can’t fix them myself I reckon):

  • Code blocks would benefit from proper indentation.
  • Interfaces have adverbs as names? I reckon they’re nouns instead.
  • I don’t get what convention ServeHTTP is breaking here.
  • Typo in section “Live Coding Time”: “its”.
  • Typo in section “Receivers Matter”: “Pointer”
