I've been on masto quite a while now, so I think an is overdue.

Moin. I am a (soon to be finished) computer science student in Germany. My interests are and . I focus on 2D puzzlers but am open for more. I am also interested in human languages. Especially conlangs like . If able, I go climbing fairly regularly.

Sadly I am not very good at expressing myself so if I say something controversial, take it with a grain of salt.

It always surprises me how unwelcoming FOSS issue trackers are. I recently found a bug in [popular framework] and made a detailed bug report including a minimal replication project. The answer: yeah you have to use [big CLI tool and dev-env] to make a replication project. Can't help *ticket closed*.
I've had interactions like these mutiple times. There is obviously something wrong with your software and I provide the best info I have, yet you refuse to acknowledge the issue exists?

I can officially call myself B.Sc now 🥳
Though I am a bit sad that this is my last time on campus for the forseeable future

Es gibt eine wirksame* Petition zur dauerhaften Einführung des 9€-Tickets:
Petition 133635

*Keine dieser sinn- und zweckfreien Webseitenpetitionen, für die sich kein Verantwortlicher jemals interessiert, sondern beim Petitionsausschuss des Bundetages.

Ist das Lobby Suchen in Multiplayerspielen auch ein Lobbyregister?

How do you think about King's diversity space tool?
Boosts appreciated

I am once again reminding you of the existence of #kdl (, a fancy new config/document language that could make your config files so much more expressive and maintainable than YAML/JSON. pls take a look!

Also: If you're going to do research on functional programming or especially Haskell, you're not going to get around Simon Peyton Jones. Literally one third of my citations are from him.

Now as a companion to my thesis I have to do a presentation on it. My supervisor has recommended me a video on how to give a good science talk. Guess whom it's from.

Thesis: Done. It is on it's merry way to the examiner's office.

Mojang pestered me about the required change to a Microsoft account. So I gave in and tried to create a Microsoft account. After almost half an hour trying "you requested too many codes". How the fuck am I meant to migrate then?

Anybody wanting to read a thesis in german about fold/build fusion on non-deterministic code?

WOO! Thesis text finished! Only correcting grammar and spelling mistakes as well as final layouting are left.

What do you think the Fibonacci begins with?

lb: A good thread with almost all abbreviations and lingo

Content warning abbreviations can be a bit confusing, so here are the most common ones:

ph = physical health
mh = mental health
pol. = politics
adj. = adjacent
+ = positively framed
~ = neutrally/uncertaintly framed
- = negatively framed
begpost = crowdfunding request
:boost_ok: = Boosts are okay/appreciated
:birdsite: = Twitter, also known as "Birdsite"

If anyone can think of anything else, we'll happily boost it. But most others tend to be self-explanatory.

And today in awesome research titles:
"Worker/wrapper/makes it/faster"
"Work it, wrap it, fix it, fold it"

(Both about the worker/wrapper transformation)

TIL: if you play a video or sound clip and scroll away while it plays, it automatically opens a miniplayer so you don't have to search for the toot where the sounds are coming from.
