Pinned toot

Look, I made a thing! After I saw the awesome blog post on city street orientations, I generated some charts for European and German cities (and refactored Geoff's IPython notebook into a script on the way). If you want to see a map of your favourite city in this style, tell me about it and I'll see what I can do.

Eichhorn, Einhorn, das sind doch bürgerliche Kategorien.

This is an excellent example of a page I won't share on Twitter, because it really needs a CW. Twitter will show a preview of one of the photos, and that's just … no.

Aus der Reihe "Schöne Beleidigungen": Rastnase.

Morgen und übermorgen wird btw bei mir ziemlich komplett auf ein Gänseessen draufgehn. *wirbel*

Die unglückliche Verkettung geht: Ein halber Teelöffel Backpulver statt ein viertel, deshalb zu hoch gehender Teig, deshalb längere Garzeit bis alles durch ist, deshalb trockene/rissige Kekse.

Ob ich mit der "das kann man ja niemandem anbieten"-Karte durchkomme?

Leider ist die Rakete beim Transport gebrochen. Der Ersatzteig war weniger gut, zu viel Backpulver. Fürchte, die Ersatzrakete sieht etwas uninspiriert aus.

Zweite Spekulatiusbackaktion in zwei Tagen. Muss ja eigentlich einen Weg geben, das zu tun, ohne dass die Hälfte des Teigs verschwindet, aber ich krieg einfach nicht raus, wie.

I use very few actual graphical applications outside my browser, but this has reduced my usage of Zeal and makes Calibre extremely annoying.

Hey Linux people, I need some help: For the last couple of months, QT applications have shown a weird thing where they accept my inputs by keyboard, but appear nonreactive until I click somewhere, which seems to trigger a redraw/refresh, and shows what apparently has been there all along. Any debugging hints?

I use a very small amount of GTK applications besides my browser, but this has reduced my usage of Zeal (Dash for Linux), and makes using Calibre very annoying. I have no clue where to start looking to find the issue.

Dear Calibre. When I search for a term that is literally the title of a book in your collection: How about you show that book first, not half way down a 30 entry list?

I'd like to report a dangerous website: fivebooks.com/ has experts recommend the five best books on a topic or in a genre. Particularly the nonfiction section will reduce my free time and expand my reading list by … a lot.

Uhhh, DragonPy will be a conference in Ljubljana next year! dragonpy.com/

Der rückt näher – vor einem Jahr habe ich meinen Blogpost über die Kasse und die Schlange (Schlange? welche Schlange!) geschrieben, mit Graphen und allem: rixx.de/de/blog/introducing-c3

Hmm, now that I stopped my monthly book blog posts, I could take up my monthly link blog posts again. Would you be interested?
