Continuing to work on my script to convert my Zettelkasten into a presentable website. I now have a nice, sorted overview over all existing notes. It just needs a little more polishing, a navigation bar, and some work on the notes (some still contain thoughts too intimate for me to share).
And all this only with pandoc (yay) and bash (ugh). :D

I’m so glad the number system in Mandarin isn’t something like “four-times-twenty-and-seventeen” 😂

When everything is interdependent, everything is fragile.

I like how in french when you ask what’s going in in someone’s life, you ask them “what do you become?”.

@Sandra Haha yeah, the rain is warm and sometimes you can even see the sun 😂

That’s one of the only albums I listen to in a lossless file format, although I think I don’t really hear a difference above 320kb/s or so. This music is so full of little noises and nuances to discover!

I’ve struggled forever with staying in touch with friends. I’m pretty sure I have a few specific friends only because they’re reaching out all the time, even when I don’t.

Now I manage to reach out to people that are important to me and just tell them “Hey, we haven’t talked in a while, are you up for a call or a walk?”. I’m a little proud of myself to be honest :)

A friend just told me proudly that he’s finally finished his vim setup for work so he can use it as an IDE. Their vim-config is ~1200 lines and makes use of 25+ plugins. 🙀

@radonhawk Reminds me of the “bike boat” this lokal artist built for a theater play :D
Not as large as 35 persons, but therefore it bends in corners ;)

"Debugging is twice as hard as writing the code in the first place.

Therefore, if you write the code as cleverly as possible, you are, by definition, not smart enough to debug it."

-- Brian W. Kernighan and P. J. Plauger (in The Elements of Programming Style)

I just realised... If I’m learning Mandarin with an immersion based approach...this means I get to watch all those old Jackie Chan movies in their native language :D

It’s a thing I’ll replace in the longterm anyways I think. In essence it’s just a number of pretty good Anki decks, and I’d like to build my own anyways once I got some systems set up for it. But for now it’s great to quickstart comprehension and vocabulary.
