@clacke @cketti The post should rather be:

"Thank you very much for maintaining such a great app for so long. You have made my life better. I wish you good luck on the new path you chose. 💙"

It's quite interesting to me that to an American conservative, "liberal" means "a Marxist Communist or secretly a Marxist Communist sympathiser, sworn enemy of Freedom", while to a European (or young American Jacobin reading) leftist, "liberal" means "a rich capitalist or secretly a rich capitalist sympathiser, sworn enemy of Progress".

And decades later, nobody bothers to clarify which pejorative they mean, but both agree that Liberals are The Worst.

Makes for very odd conversations.

Read a bunch of engineering articles in German, and now I´m supposed to write something snappy, but my brain is stuck in endless-German-sentence-mode.

@tazgetroete Heute sind dann auch zwei Wochen rum. Zusammenfassung:
+ Vom Redakteur zwei mal doof angemacht worden.
+ Eine Entschuldigung von der Poststelle bekommen.
+ Stille.

Schade drum liebe taz 🤷‍♀️

Look, if you´re obscenely rich and you´re looking into buying something distinctive for air transport, I have a suggestion for you:

A 200m long AirYacht.

The thing about people who have a lot of whatever it is that we're measuring with IQ is that they quite often tend to be way _more_ wrong than those who have less of whatever it is that those points stand for.

High IQ is kind of like superglue for opinions

Not only doesn't IQ compensate for ignorance or poor methodology, it acerbates the issue.

Rationalisation is a powerful drug. Most people can convince themselves of almost everything but those with high IQ tend to be _extraordinary_ at it.

@sophia Seize the day! And throttle it until it stops twitching.

Update: Das mit der Musik sind gar nicht die Handwerker.

Das ist ein Mädchen im Teenageralter, die am Spielplatz nebenan auf der Schaukel sitzt und einen wunderbaren Sopran zu den Songs aus ihrer Bluetooth-Box singt 😃

Content d’avoir rejoint (c’est officiel !) le collège « codes sources et logiciels » du Comité d’orientation pour la #ScienceOuverte (CoSO) :

Plein de projets passionnants en vue pour mieux prendre en compte le logiciel dans la recherche, et une équipe de choc !

Die Handwerker nebenan sind zwar laut, haben aber wenigstens einen brauchbaren Musikgeschmack.🎵 📻

Dear open source users,

If the author of your favorite open source app has announced they stopped developing and supporting the app (because they're frustrated and possibly burned out), please don't suggest they do more free work so that you can continue using the app.
Instead, consider thanking them for their past work and let them know that you enjoyed their app.
