"The lemmings supposedly committing mass suicide by leaping into the ocean were actually thrown off a cliff by the Disney filmmakers."

😱 why would anyone do such a thing? And what else is Disney hiding?

"The future of C++" by Michael Wong of @isocpp's direction group.

Looking forward to attending my first @isocpp committee meeting as an observer next week!

Any recommendations for newbies to the meeting?

And the last vacation pictures, this time from Leipzig:

Rome
Dool
Blixa Bargeld

... And some pictures from !

I had never hiked in the Czech Republic before, but I can really recommend it for small trips -- especially since its not that far from Berlin.

The rise of the Elbe. Somehow less impressive than I thought (it's actually a small ditch on the left of the well!), but the view is nice 👌

So my major lesson learned from the #gpg/#pgp thing today is not to trust warnings by EFF in the future – while parts of their warning were factually correct, they were baiting for attention in annoying and unhelpful ways.

This culture of publishing exploits and issues in a publicicty focused way is disturbing. I had hoped the EFF was beyond this needless hyping of vulns. Apparently not.

Have you heard of StreetComplete? It's an Android app that shows you open questions/issues with OpenStreetMap in your area, and asks you to answer them.

It's made for people with no experience with #OpenStreetMap, so it shows only very simple questions that can be answered very clearly. ("What is printed on this street sign?", "What's the number on this house?")

It's available on @fdroidorg, of course! #mapping #android #apps #recommendation

Oh reddit. "During the Cold War, Finland secretly smuggled more than ten thousand vowels from Czechoslovakia. That's why the Finnish have sentences like 'Älä rääkkää kääkkää kääkänrääkkääjä!' and the Czechs have 'Strč prst skrz krk.'"

Macros can be useful but I feel like we should ban certain people from touching them.

For example, imagine if someone were to use the C preprocessor to create an elaborate object orientation system for C, calling it GObject, and then create an entire graphics stack up to and including a desktop environment, called, say, GNOME.

I think that's the kind of person who should no longer be allowed to use the C preprocessor.

#Gitea 1.4 has been released! I'm thrilled to see the vast amount of new features, and will happily roll it out on @fsfe's https://git.fsfe.org soon :) https://blog.gitea.io/2018/03/gitea-1.4.0-is-released/ … @giteaio

TFW you decide to go hiking in Majorca (of all places) and are then busy picking icicles out of your beard 🤔🌨🌪❄
