In-reply-to » I’ve been to the office almost every day for the last 5 weeks (debugging WiFi in our various buildings) and it really took a toll on me. I’m exhausted. It’s so much overhead to drive to the office, a ridiculous waste of resources and time. How did we ever consider this normal? 😨

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org Luckily, most of the WiFi stuff has been sorted, yeah. So no more compulsory commutes. I might go there, though, to play some Pool. 🎱 😁 But most certainly not every day.

In-reply-to » Good timing, it started to drizzle when we were nearly home again. Other than that the weather was a gray soup. My camera had a hard time with long exposures in this darkness.

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org That looks like really annoying german Matschwetter. 😅

It took me quite a long time to find out what bird that is, but I think I got it now:

Never seen such a tree, either. Then again, I don’t see lots of trees close up anyway. 🥴

Not one traffic jam, though. Looks like lots of people are still working from home as well. Put another way: Back in the day, it took even longer to get to the office due to bad traffic! Oof.

In-reply-to » What looks to me to be pretty nasty transphobia was posted in the yarn.social IRC channel.

@abucci@anthony.buc.ci I don’t know what happened. I agree, though: Not OK. I just wanted to leave this “+1” here, because your post shouldn’t drown in the noise, thus falsly creating the impression that nobody cares or that people silently disagree with you.

In-reply-to » @movq Oh, even Fraktur! It took me brute force to decypher "Heute", mainly due to the "H". Both "n" and "u" look identical to me, so my brain tricked me into believing that it of course has to be an "n". Looks quite beautiful, keep it coming.

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org Those birthday cards were quite popular, yes. 😅

drying takes around a day?

Nah, it’s a few minutes. At least with the ink(s) that I’m using. 🤔

@justamoment@twtxt.net Oh! Well that’s a different story then. 😵 (Thinking about it, I don’t think I’ve ever met someone with dyslexia in person … Hmmm.)

@justamoment@twtxt.net Thanks 😅 To be fair, though, I think it’s easier to write Fraktur than normal handwriting. First, as I said, I’m doing it super slow. Second, that pen/nib has much more “friction” on the paper than a regular pen. I find it much easier to make a straight line this way.

Doing something like this (not mine, got it off Google) is a whole different story: https://movq.de/v/de01805560/s.png

In-reply-to » Okay so I have no clue about Rust nor am I a very proficient programmer, but surely this is even more of a joke than this repo portrays it to be? It can't actually be this ridiculous to make a hello world in Rust surely 😅

@eldersnake@we.loveprivacy.club It is a joke.

$ mkdir foo && cd foo
$ cargo init
     Created binary (application) package
$ cargo run
   Compiling ach v0.1.0 (/tmp/tmp/ach)
    Finished dev [unoptimized + debuginfo] target(s) in 1.17s
     Running `target/debug/ach`
Hello, world!
$ cat src/main.rs
fn main() {
    println!("Hello, world!");
}
$

(Yes, a “hello world” is the default code created by cargo init.)

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org I use ink pots:

The nibs are pretty simple:

https://movq.de/v/f75e6597bb/2.jpg (5 MB)

A small amount of ink gets trapped in that little “hook” there. (Dunno how to describe it, that’s what I mean: https://movq.de/v/304d99e6cd/2-2.jpg) Depending on the size of the nib, this lasts for about, hmm, maybe half a line? You have to re-dip quite often, which can be a bit annoying. Then again, it’s not a big issue, because the whole process is super slow anyway. When I was writing birthday cards this way, I think it took about 30-45 minutes to write one card with a couple of lines on it.

It’s a matter of practice to make it uniform – and it also depends on the type of ink. “Scabiosa” (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iron_gall_ink) is not very uniform, it’s the purple-ish stuff in the upper half (I probably ran out of ink on “Xerox” and was too lazy to re-dip):

https://movq.de/v/f75e6597bb/3.jpg (6 MB)

The lower half is some other ink, much more uniform.

Those little ink pots last a really, really long time, by the way. This is the one that I’ve been using the most throughout the years, and there’s still quite a bit left:

https://movq.de/v/f75e6597bb/4.jpg

I often thought about buying a pen with an integrated cartridge, but I think that it’s better with ink pots. It’s super easy to clean, nothing ever clogs up or dries out. And you can easily switch to another type of ink without much hassle:

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org I don’t remember, to be honest. 🤔 I was probably browsing random images on imgur.com and saw someone doing it, so I thought to myself: “Hey, that’s cool, I always liked that, so let’s just buy a pen and some nibs.” 😅 Luckily, that equipment isn’t very expensive … It was just 20 bucks, so why not just give it a shot.

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org They are very similar, yes, but I’ve also been sloppy. 😅 “u” should be connected at the bottom, “n” at the top. Here’s a better example from 2018:

I also like that capital “E” much better, hmm.
