I'm sorry , I like your concepts a lot, but you are just too slow

Beautiful new Copernicus data service: ground motion monitoring. You can see the bounce back after the ice age in Scandinavia, the subsidence of houses in Groningen due to gas extraction. And my own home subsided 6mm since 2016.

bootstrapping a compiler...

That's a first in, I dunno, 25 years. Last time it probably was gcc on an HP-UX (apollo 425 I think) cluster I bought from university leftovers

(defalias 'insert-cut-here-line 'message-mark-inserted-region)

Sigh, spent 15 minutes looking for the right function name to insert a /cut-here/ separator line.

Jammer dat laatste upgrades nog niet heeft.


The announcement that Microsoft joins the sun setting corpocaca and abandons Atom reminds me Per Abrahamsen’s Emacs Defense.
«What you call "Windows" is just one of many window systems that has come in and out of fashion during the lifetime of Emacs. Emacs (in one version or another) has supported most of them, SunView, NeWS, X10, X11 (Open Look, Athena, Motif), PM, Win32, Mac. Emacs has provided a sound foundation that has allowed programmers to be productive with all these, and will also provide a foundation for whatever window system will be hot tomorrow. What Emacs doesn't do is to give up that foundation in order to follow the latest trend. Instead, it incorporates what is good and compensates for the rest. This -- of course -- will make Emacs feel "old" for the followers of hype, but the wise will see its intrinsic power and lasting value.»

Trying out @kensanata's plugin for . Obediently following the manual ;-)

I write novels and articles with GNU #emacs . That's very good editor.

I think what most of the world misses, is this Dutch thing called borrelnootjes.

I'm sort of getting used to having 'changeme' as the name of my workstation. Probably should change it before it's 'muscle memorized'

I have setup a Trunk instance for the #Dutch speakers.

Voor de Nederlands-taligen onder ons: de Trunk is bijna klaar. Suggesties voor lijsten hoor ik graag. Ook als je op de lijsten wilt.

Als je Trunk niet kent: het is een tool waar je mensen kunt zoeken om te volgen op de Fediverse.

Graag boosten als je NL-talige volgers hebt ;-)

I never used `comm` before; handy for keeping track of which packages I still need to migrate to a new machine:

`comm -23 <(pacman -Qenq|sort) <(ssh 'pacman -Qenq'|sort)`
