If you scroll over wrapped lines using j/k you may notice your cursor jumping over the wrapped part of the line because vim ignores wrapping. If you use gj/gk vim will instead put the cursor on the next line *visually*, taking wrapping into account. You can make this behaviour default too by putting `map j gj` and `map k gk` into your vimrc.

`:w(rite)` work for selections: You can select some lines in visual mode and use `:w /some/filename` to only write the selected lines into that file.
Also you can use `:r(ead) /some/filename` to read a file — or even use `:r(ead) !/some/command` to include the stdout of that program.

You can open many types of compressed files directly: `(n)vim` and `(n)vim data.tar.gz` will let you open, edit &save files within the archive — if your distribution includes zip.vim and tar.vim respectively.

Between the idea
And the reality
Between the motion
And the act
Falls the Shadow.


I have a thing I *need* to do. I also have a lot of things I *want* to do. But I don't manage to do the former one and I'm forbidding myself to do the latter until I've done the former. So I'm sitting around getting neither the things I need to do nor the things I want to do actually done. It's frustrating.

aich verstehe ja, dass Menschen die Optik eines Feuerwerks geil finden.

Das geht aber auch mit Drohnen die LEDs tragen und eine Choreografie fliegen.

Vorteil: wiederverwertbar, weniger CO2, kein verstörender Lärm für Tiere, Menschen die vom Krieg traumatisiert wurden und allgemein lärmempfindlichen Menschen.

Nachteil: weniger Bewerbungen für den Darwin-Award.

Ich würde den Deal eingehen.

Lining up connectors with their matching part on separate PCBs. Thanks KiCadStepUp for making this a painless process.

Putting stuff together I'm happy to be able to finally see progress \o/

Also here's *checks notes* Excaliber, Excalibur is in repair at the moment.

On the note of clones of centralized software but with ActivityPub instead, a Reddit alternative.

Me every time some company writes "LINUX" in all caps as they would write UNIX™:


Can we just take a minute and appreciate the amazing logo of the ESA ACT?

Since I've seen a few of those now:
1. First language: C++
2. Had difficulties: Haskell
3. Most used: Rust, Haskell, Python, C
4. Totally hate: Go (so much wasted potential q.q)
5. Most loved: Haskell
6. For beginners: Python
7. Want to learn: … Yes.

OH: Und die RAM-Riegel legen wir auf einen Stapel … sogenannten Stapelspeicher.
