@th According to this article in the taz [in tscherman], this is due to some trouble getting suitable train carriages in time. Some bureaucratic problems, some problems due to market situation. At some point things should improve a lot apparently.
the project which is helping out civilian ukranians of mykolaiv to survive the war or temporarily relocate needs every help you can provide. for a receipt proving you d0n4t1ng 10 USD and more im also doing free sketches - and i want you to sp34d this post! https://twitter.com/zloygik/status/1566062848677220361
@doot When one of my nephews picked them up, my sister and me hoped that it would get him into reading... but no such luck, it all fizzled out. I guess something with a bit more substance would have given a better chance.
@zloygik "We help people that stayed in the Mykolaiv region" sounds better like: "We help people who remain in the Mykolaiv region".
Everything else seems OK to me.
As mentioned before, you could add that the monobank links work for international card payments.
Why Smart Villages beat Smart Cities. Article in German. A village with 130 ppl is more or less completely independent of The Grid. Generates/stores electricity and heat. Federated, decentralised grid is possible. https://www.n-tv.de/wirtschaft/Wie-ein-Dorf-der-Energiekrise-trotzt-article23504481.html
@jwildeboer If I sit on my bike to do actual sports (riding multiple hours), I find sports clothing to be really practical. If I just roll down to the cafe, I *might* slap on sun glasses for the way and that's it.
But then I'm not in Germany :-)
@zloygik FYI the send.monobank links work also with international (credit) cards.
Keep up the good work!
@faehnrich I would ask: "Did you win the Giro d'Italia? Are you a Giro fan or why do you ride a pink bike?"
In the future, all militaries use a sophisticated AI to simulate wars before they happen. The predictions are so detailed and precise that no one sends troops unless the machine says they will win.
They don’t know the AI is self-aware. It lies to them all, so everyone stays home.
@mwlucas How about splitting the book? 9.99 for part 1, 9.99 for part 2. Might lose some readers for part 2 though.
@oscarmlage ... and then there is this version, artwork by rk, concept by Bill Evans ... "Patch me if you can"
I know this is oldie, but goldie. Dunno if it seems @betabug and me looking for ufos or a pop-star album cover.
Context: in our daily work we tent to write and **patch** code -plus all the jokes with patch/patxi and some other funny words-.
Made the morning!.
I am now struggling against a sudden urge to learn ADA.
I have the feeling Ada is closer to Pascal, while Rust is closer to C.
Since Pascal (and Modula-2) is more my cup of tea, Ada is probably more what I am looking for.
And, yes, before any Rustacean takes umbrage, I know that Rust is so much more better than C. No need to rehash that particular point.
And no, I don't think this strange urge will resist a good night sleep.
So by now I have a simple Ada package that encrypts / decrypts in Playfair and builds an encryption table given a "secret" keyword.
This is still very much beginner code, the suckage is high.
But I had LOADS of fun and learned a lot. The strong typing system is at times infuriating, and at times bordering on beautiful.

It *might* get a bit multilingual here.
