Okay, the exact workflow is a bit more like this: the compiler yells at you, you fix your code, compile your stuff into a binary and it JUST RUNS! 🤯

So I’ve been teaching myself the tiniest bit of Rust (coming from web dev) and get this: you compile your stuff into a binary and it JUST RUNS!

I’ve just come across a shared folder full of files that all start with dates formatted as YYYYDDMM (!) and I’d like to end the workweek here and now thanks bye

If current trends are to be trusted, my diet will consist solely of fibre by the end of August.

I’m curious: while working from home for the past nine months or so, have any of you tried out new forms of collaboration beyond (video) meetings, real-time chat and email? Which ones? How’d it go?

Instead of the German tradition of “Bleigießen” where you melt lead, pour it into water and interpret the resulting lump of toxic metal, I had my pen plotter plot me something random. What do you think this is? And what does fortune have in store for me?

@c3lingo@twitter.com Wow, first they fixed the typo in the German text and then they actually started!

Waiting to translate a talk that should have started fifteen minutes ago is worse than every telephone queue I’ve ever experienced. @c3lingo@twitter.com

Oh no! Five minutes at and I’ve already lost my phone in the ball pit.

Update: the solstice appears to have gone ahead as planned.

Some people get really immersed in books or films. Me, I just tried to control-D my way out of a GIF of a terminal session.

The way this year has been going, my only wish is that next week‘s solstice doesn’t get cancelled at the last minute.

I plotted these snowflakes just for you, !

They’re not quite true to how snowflakes grow in nature, but I was so happy with how they turned out that I decided I didn’t care. (They’re lines connecting pairs of random points in a circle segment, reflected 12 times.)

And the answer is: [0, 1, 10, 2, 20]

This is because Array.prototype.sort() compares elements as strings, no matter their actual type, which is a fantastic way to shoot yourself in the foot. Most of you were smarter than me and got it right!
