Pinned toot

Hi! I'm Jannis. (26, he/him, cis). I live in Heidelberg and work as a software engineer/SRE in Frankfurt am Main. I enjoy beautiful things.

I got fed up with always misremembering the syntax of xargs, or getting the semantics of shell for loops wrong across different shells. github.com/Xjs/foreach-line

In the holy name of Cthulhu, stop doing video tutorials!

They are useless, do not allow you to go in depth on a subject, and, unless your production values are top notch (read professional sound and image crew) will probably be horrible and a pain to watch.

If you care about a technical subject, please take the time to *write* about it and publish it on the Internet.

Another fix would be to use 24-hour time already, despite my English lessons having taught me differently. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Current status: Looking for an iOS Unicode keyboard to fix this toot to contain a protected space between 8 and AM.

Nerding out about German grammar at 8 AM, with barely opened eyes.

I sometimes get ad-shamed at work when I speak out about how horrible ads are. People who’s entire job it is every day is to manage ads feel personally attacked by it. Fuck it. Ads suck. I won’t watch them and I don’t think it’s ok that other people watch them either.

Ich habe das Gefühl, ohne Brille schlechter zu hören. Ergibt das Sinn?

And my computer feels slower than usual.

My ability to write coherent sentences seems hampered already.

I had a double-shot cappuccino at home, like most days. Then I made a double coffee in the office, just because I liked the warm feeling of a large mug of coffee on a rainy day. About half an hour later, a colleague brought Кулич (some sort of russian Easter cake), so I had to refill my then-half-empty-and-lukewarm cup to have enough hot coffee to drink together with the pastries.

I already had five shots of coffee today. Not because I craved caffeine, just because of circumstances.

Let's see how this is going to feel.

Also not sure if I should have CW'd this with something, and if yes, why and with what. I'll be happy to learn if you think I should've.

I'm talking about cobweb diagrams, by the way. (Not sure if I should feel extra stupid now because it's so simple.)

I used to feel really smart as a kid. University seems to have taken it almost all away from me. I didn't really notice until now it is starting to come back. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I'm not sure why. Hadn't I found it too important? Had I simply not taken the two minutes to read the paragraph because I seemed not to have time? Was my motivation for studying and academic work so low? Was it a mental health issue?

What state of mind had university put me in? Studying for my final oral exam – after already working full-time in the industry for about two years, thus studying being on some sort of hiatus – I just re-read a simple explanation of a concept from dynamical systems analysis, and found it very well put and easily understandable. I had never really understood the concept before.
