There you have it, Elizabeth’s reaction to / analysis of “Into The Earth”:

She explains quite a bit of background, both about the vocals and the song itself. It’s about lucid dreaming, as it turns out, and now suddenly a lot of the details in the video make much more sense to me. 😊

And I have to say, I love that she’s a professional opera singer who has no metal background whatsoever. It’s all new to her and she’s just nerding out about the weird crazy vocals. 😃

Look at that. Rain for basically the whole day. Awesome! When we made our appointment the other day we didn’t know that we picked the perfect time for today’s hike. It just stopped before we went outside.

All these hot temperatures for weeks made the 20°C today feel quite cold. After lunch I had to wear a jumper, cool air coming in was too much for only a t-shirt when sitting still at the desk. But walking this evening was very lovely. Absolutely perfect in a t-shirt. We thought we will encounter some more rain on our way, so we opted for long trousers. Yet, it remained dry, so we both regretted our choice quickly. The humidity of at least 100% was very tough. However, no comparison to temperatures of last week and the one before.

Noone else was outside, we had everything for us. Met exactly six people in total in those two and quarter hours. In general this was a very silent trip. No birds singing, no traffic on the one road for several minutes. Heard just a bunch of sheep and cows in the distance. Quite weird, but enjoyable for sure.

In-reply-to » @prologic and others, video call tomorrow/tonight?

@darch@neotxt.dk I don’t understand. What is the time zone? If UTC, why isn’t it converting it to my time zone with some of the garbage it’s downloading in the background? If it’s my time zone, why isn’t it telling me that?

I’m available this evening my time (Saturday 04:00-06:00 UTC) and tomorrow in the morning (Saturday 16:00-18:00 UTC) and the evening (Sunday 02:00-06:00 UTC). Here is a link to my time zone table.

In-reply-to » What on earth!? Just noticed, the clock face of my watch is shifted 90° clockwise. Was today's bike ride on the gravel too much of a raddle? Hm. Crap.

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org if your watch had shifted counterclockwise it would have been annihilated in a burst of gamma rays!

New day at the office, been a nice first week after vacation so far, but weekend is always appreciated! Not sure what we’re going to do yet - but I’m sure going to enjoy the days off work :)

In-reply-to » Every now and again Chrome (on macOS on my iMac) gets to a point where basically no hostname resolves, like at all. Everything times out, as-if something is wrong with my network or the internet or DNS or something. But, a quick restart fixes that. Seems like there is a bug in Chrome whereby having Chrome running for long periods of time exhibits and exposes this bug.

Only time something like that has happened on my end is if browser got updated while its running (trough package manager). But I only run firefox..

@prologic@twtxt.net a soccer/football game.

I guess I’ll overcomplicate it even more, but for now it was the easiest solution for a referee to follow the ball, while they is walking across a line.

@eaplmx@twtxt.net What “problem” were you trying to solve that lead you to this wonderful piece of trigonometry that I have zero clues about 😂 Boi am I rusty with “hard math” 😅

The tricky part is in naming what you are trying to find, ha!

In-reply-to » @prologic I found the Atom feed, but I'm worried it might be too noisy, I don't want to overwhelm my feed reader too much. Hmm...

@mckinley@twtxt.net Yeah I’m not a big fan of making it it too formal really, I sorta tend to think the way we play it by ear is kind of okay anyway 🤔 We probably don’t need to make a big deal as such, it’s fun, that’s all that matters, sometimes we (usually) discuss pretty interesting stuff. 😂

In-reply-to » Progress! so i have moved into working on aggregates. Which are a grouping of events that replayed on an object set the current state of the object. I came up with this little bit of generic wonder.

@xuu@txt.sour.is Congratulations! That’s by far the longest twt I’ve seen. :-) Working fine in tt. I was a bit worried, that lengths of multiple screens would be hard to read or scroll. But magically it just scrolled line by line.

I reckon two returns can be saved in GetUser(…). Oh, on further inspection there are even two nested err != nil checks.

Generics were desperately needed. I’m glad they finally introduced them. I stumbled across them last week and gave them a shot. The syntax is probably not the very best, but I will get used to it eventually.
