Oh no. Now that I got acquainted with autoconf/automake for work, I'll perpetually check the relevant files for FOSS-projects I encounter, ain't I? 😭

(I just did for pavucontrol, which I am looking at for reference..)

Abortion, language policing 

Not the time to police uterus owners on language they use around abortion, esp if you're a cis man.

I am happy to call myself pro abortion. It's not a dirty word, it's a procedure. One that should be available on demand shame free. I have no problem saying it and if you have an issue it's yours

Calling them pro-life doesn't suggest they are, not in the context of this place or circles I run in. Everyone knows they're anti-choice, forced birthers, whatever.

On my latest bike ride I may have atomized a bumblebee. 😳

P.S.: I don't think I will live-tweet the content.. I will probably have a hard time understanding the content as it is, without having to byte-size re-formulate it in my own words. πŸ€“

Update: I finished the forword and learned that there were more volumes planned but not finished by Karl himself. Also what the best progression is to read the book as a beginner: it's "consecutively". And that the matter is arguably written in an understandable way, even if you are not too knowledgeable.

OK. Let's dig into the main content: "Der Produktionsprozess des Kapitals." (approx.: "The production process of the capital")

I was playing Rogue Legacy 2, attempting to finish a whole NG+ (all Prime Bosses) in one run and got sloppy/too greedy at the second to last boss. 😭

Forgot the alt-text: Book cover of "Das Kapital" by Karl Marx.

Could today be the day I start educating myself properly?
Or will the foreword break me again?


Loving it: Spending 30 minutes on debugging an issue I fixed already, only because I used the wrong command line from history.

`-D_BSD_VISIBLE` instead of `-D__BSD_VISIBLE`. πŸ” (One underscore missing.)


Kind of fallen into a rabbit hole this evening with github.com/nvim-treesitter/nvi

I think it's cool, that the syntax parsing backend is evolving. I don't know yet how to feel about configuring neovim with lua. I would love to really feel the difference between regex- and treesitter-based parsing, but I am relatively ignorant to nuances.

(Context was the sticky header feature of XCode and of course there are already vim plugins.. and boom, rabbit hole.) πŸ€“πŸ°β›³

Never have I ever put so many typos in something than I do in these M4 macro files at work.

- `AS_IF([test "$var" = "val], [...` was a big one (notice the missing quote after val),
- but `!=` where I wanted to write `=` got me down a rabbit hole as well..

Maybe I need thicker glasses. πŸ€“

Just kidding, at this time at my gym all the bros occupy anything remotely upper body..
Leg day it was then. 🦡😎

Fedi-wide survey, boosts appreciated!

Going to the gym the first time in 2.5 years specifically to skip leg day! πŸ’ͺ😎

That masculine urge to check whether the lights are on in full daylight. 😎

Not only did I manage to find my charging USB port in complete darkness, I also managed to plug in the USB (Type A) cable correctly orientated at the very first attempt.

Highlight of my day right there. 😬
