Something I made years ago, just a tiny joke.

succinct poetic rephrasing by replacing subtrees with semantically similar subtrees of shorter length. using project gutenberg poetry as a corpus, this works really well. going the opposite direction (i.e., finding longer subtrees) doesn't work as well, I think because spacy's parser just isn't satisfyingly accurate on poetry?

When I checked out this morning, I was like OHMYGOD. If you are a reader, go for it _now_! You won't regret it.

Sorry for the spoiler in my earlier post.

second draft for tübix poster. It's even animated!

I aim to screen print it, probably with inverted colors.

Es war eine wundervolle ! Es ist dieses Jahr sehr Portrait-lastig geworden, danke für das Vertrauen, dass ich von euch Bilder machen durfte. Das ganze Album gibt's auf Flickr: flickr.com/photos/cheatha/albu

So my major lesson learned from the /#pgp thing today is not to trust warnings by EFF in the future – while parts of their warning were factually correct, they were baiting for attention in annoying and unhelpful ways.

This culture of publishing exploits and issues in a publicicty focused way is disturbing. I had hoped the EFF was beyond this needless hyping of vulns. Apparently not.

There’s nothing wrong with GPG/PGP.

There is no “bug”. Don’t listen to EFF. Don’t disable GPG. Disable image loading instead (and probably HTML).

This is a bug in email readers. Not GPG.

Als Update und v2 zu letztem Jahr habe ich auf der einen Vortrag über das Fediverse, Mastodon, und chaos.social gehalten, quasi einmal den Fortschrittsbericht. Da das VOC großartig wie immer ist, könnt ihrs euch jetzt schon anhören: media.ccc.de/v/gpn18-175-dezen

First draft of a poster for , the Linux day of Tübingen.

@rixx Danke für den Talk gerade! Ich fand ihn ziemlich informativ und auf den Punkt gebracht.

Endlich auf der angekommen. Fühlt sich nicht weniger nach zuhause an als vor drei Jahren.

Hey @telent I'm interested in building OpenWRT/LEDE with Nix. Did you have a look into that topic before you started ?

I already noticed that somebody provided a working shell.nix, but I'm more thinking about having a derivation for every Makefile.

@erictapen this is the only thing I've done in this style, but I've been making voice micropods and electronic music (separately!) since about 2012

I have a link to my latest short album in my bio.
