@lattera You mean those ``def __repr__(self):`` and ``def __str__(self):`` methods?

@watch_union Schön wäre auch ein Vergleich zu den Schäden durch CumEx-Betrugsfälle.

@kgerloff Hmmm, I have a faint memory Apple tried that with AppleScript once, a million years ago. I could be wrong though. Also didn't last long I think.

pet peeve 

@dressupgeekout Yeah, that's a cute one.

A similar pet peeve of mine is when an open source project announces they are looking for contributors and you have to hunt through 7 levels of their site to find out what languages / tech stack they are using.

@fellmoon In .gr the law obliges businesses to accept payments by card.

OTOH, sadly lots of places seem to think that tripadvisor or f*book are "their website".

@jwildeboer The person on the bicycle in picture 2 wasn't that lucky :-/

@pdt Apparently you can get the DevTerm with a RasPi3 setup, which I guess should work with NetBSD? But then... some reports say the keyboard is just a bit too small to be practical.

Last week in one of the cafes where I frequently have my , the IPv4 didn't work. ... but did ... new blog post: "The Saga of IPv6"

TL;DR ... it lead me to blog.apnic.net/2022/05/04/the-

Quick OpenBSD survey about obsdfreqd 

@solene I thought I would need it after upgrading to 7.1, but then my fan stayed silent and the laptop cool. I guess on the x270 the processor scaling works on its own.

@kadin Actually (at least in Switzerland where I grew up), that's how it used to work back in the time. I assume it was mechanical switches back then, but dunno really.

They had to make quite a campaign to tell people to dial the prefix too for local numbers when that changed.

@jdarnold And then we humans imitate that with the predictive pipelining (or however it's properly called) in our CPUs and run into all kinds of trouble with it :-)

@pamela Lately we mostly enjoy Lapsang Soochong (loose leave) and "Kusmi" brand "Prince Vladimir" tea.

Since I got a Samovar as a present we needed something that wouldn't get bitter if it stands around for a while, and these work well ... and taste good.

We also switched to a "tea egg" with that, no more teabag waste and higher price.

@jwildeboer For beginners to Mac OS, I definitely would suggest version 7.1.1, that should be very easy to start with.

@ne1for23 Hey there!

Are you turning your account into some kind of news agency reposter? Could you slap a tag on those posts so I could filter them out or at least put a CW on them so I don't have to see them?

Thanks!

German 

my favourite aspect of formal German writing is that the shortest words like "wegen" are abbreviated to "wg." and stuff like Donaudampfschifffahrtskapitänskajüte gets the full … line.

Russia 

@jwildeboer Yeah, I got you.

We should not have illusions or false hopes out of the things we do. Often in the western media it sounds as if we are doing a huge amount, a perfect job. Which isn't true.

I don't have illusions in that direction, but for me it's in the direction of "we do what we can". We could do more, we could do better, but let's make a start.
