Pinned toot

Hi, I'm Jan, also known as halfbyte on the internet. Together with Florian, who's not on the Fediverse, I run, your friendly dependency update robot factory. I'm interested in weird and odd uses of ruby. I occasionally speak at conferences. I co-run the Hamburg Ruby Usergroup.

Organisational complexity. You simply can't escape it.

Rechte Gruppen: Du bist weiß, männlich und voller Hass? Kannst bei uns mitmachen!

Linke Gruppen: Wenn du nicht anerkennst, dass der Anarchismus von Étienne de La Boétie viel inklusiver ist als der von Alfredo Bonanno in seinen Schriften vor 1977, dann bist du mein größter Feind!

I am learning so much right now. Every. Single. Day. As if I'm a child again. It's exhausting and sometimes frightening, but so incredibly satisfying. 1 ❤️.

My brain feels completely jammed. Hopefully a bit of action next week will shake some of that loose.

I am officially too tired to handle complex regexps. Stared at three lines for 30 mins, got nowhere.

Plan: Get some actual quality sleep tonight, restart effort.

Now essentially questioning everything. Midlife crisis or just insights not available to be before?

I‘m starting to run really low on fucks to give.

Youtube consistently gives me car advertisements in front of climate change videos. I'm not so sure about that strategy.

As expected, getting back from the coziness of a long vacation to the harsh realities of what has apparently now become my life wasn't fun. I'm not having a good week. Hopefully, tomorrow will be as positively overwhelming as I am imagining it to be, I could use that.

Political leaders who understand only political reality and/or economic reality are not fully equipped to govern. They must also understand physical reality. That's the essential missing ingredient that has led to the current incredible mess.

Having a weird clarity recently about what currently goes wrong in the world and how to fix it. (Overall picture, not fine print). Wonder if I should consult a doctor or rather put in my hat for the next world presidency elections.

I have good news, and I have bad news: The fibernet in my summer home's village, after several years of planning and building, is finally in operation and I now have a better network here than in my inner city dwelling at home.

On my way home from a very nice visit to in Prague. When I get home: Frantically packing for a three week vacation. Smultronställe, jag kommer!

On my way to in Prague (happening tomorrow afternoon, which has either the most terrible or the most brilliant name depending on your stance on puns.

Three more days and then hopefully I'll manage to flee this madness for three weeks almost entirely. My soul needs rest.

That thing where you're supposed to go on a trip tomorrow morning and suddenly the event organisers stop replying to your emails 😱

I'm sure it's all fine and they are just busy, but that doesn't stop me from freaking out. It would be all good if I at least had a booking confirmation for my accommodation...

I can't really recommend these red pills.
