Time for #introductions.
I'm a software engineer who went from backend to frontend development. I enjoy #lisp most, but have dabbled in too many to list. I speak 🇩🇪 🇬🇧 🇷🇺. Things fascinating me:
Simula-67 is tough, but I'm tougher: https://github.com/wasamasa/mal-candidates/tree/master/simula-67

"You've been missed."
- "I'm sorry, what?"
- "The neighbor's daughter was singing, hoping you'd come over."
- "Oh, OK, I didn't realize. I was sitting in the shade, windows opened and with a cool drink, then heard someone singing. I didn't think much of it and didn't want to embarrass anyone by looking for them."
- "Look, you should get out and greet her, like a normal person."

I quite like reading webcomics and click myself occasionally through recommendations. Somehow I came upon Starfighter. The characters looked effeminate, but I kept reading. The writing was atrocious, but I kept reading. Then they started buttfucking each other. I've been had. See http://badwebcomicswiki.shoutwiki.com/wiki/Starfighter for more details.
Ever since then I'm deeply suspicious of webcomics with an all-male, effeminate cast, even if they're not marked NSFW.
This is a great example of the scenario and feels I mentioned previously. From Oyasumi Punpun
Needless to say, but the board games meetup was a great success! I might show up again, but next time with my backpack.
Why do I feel naked without my backpack and a Thinkpad inside? Aren't smartphones powerful enough to be a temporary replacement?
I'm considering going to a different place than the hacker space. Fediverse, how does a board games meetup sound?
It is the oddest feeling to wake up an hour before the alarm clock goes off, with plenty sleep passed. If only I wouldn't lay around for one or two hours...
I didn't know the soundscape generator can spit out fetish talk: http://imaginarysoundscape2.qosmo.jp/view/HJPLcEbkQ/81946_7037_0
Too lazy to get hot water or ice cubes, so I'm waiting for the room to cool off while drinking lukewarm water with fresh mint leaves
It's sad, but Simula-67 is no good for implementing MAL with it. It fails at I/O as it's impossible to faithfully read from stdin and reading from files is designed for unserializing numbers. Let's see whether ALGOL-68G, Modula-3 and Oberon are any better.

> No lexical token may consist of more than 72 characters.
Still better than for ancient C where function names were truncated to six characters (explaining names like strtok).
I finally fixed the most annoying #Docker default, C-p not immediately triggering in bash. It turns out they use C-p C-q as escape sequence. I suspect everyone on their dev team uses arrow keys in terminal emulators

Hey Fediverse, I'm interested in picking up #crochet, with the goal to produce #amigurumi. I found it hard to get started because most resources are videos and I'd prefer learning from a nicely illustrated book. Anything specific you'd recommend?
Also, what do you do with your #fiberarts once done, do you give them away, sell them or just unravel the thread to make new ones? I'm used to producing digital goods which don't take up much storage space.
