(#vjc33kq) @firstname.lastname@example.org What I don’t understand here: Why am I supposed to do this? Does btrfs require this, i.e. it can cause real issues if I don’t do it (or not often enough)? Or is the purpose to try to catch hardware errors early on?
The manpage doesn’t state any reason. They simply added that section (“the user is supposed …”) at some point without further explanation. 🤔
My twtxt.txt file is now ~330kB in size. I really should get working on that feed archival feature. 🙄
Using btrfs on one of my disks now. 🤔 I’m not using any of the fancy features like snapshots or subvolumes. My only reason is: Data checksumming. I’d like to have that as a safety guard in addition to regularly running
sha256sum in user space. 🤔 Let’s see how it goes … Yes, I do have good backups of that data.
(#vjc33kq) (Yes, this is my crappy rendition of the pinky/ring finger excercise I posted recently. I hear like a million mistakes, but I hope you don’t. 🥴 Let’s see how it improves over time.)
A-ha! I got a set of flatwound strings for my bass. Now it finally sounds like a bass instead of a tin can: https://movq.de/v/56e59facae/2021-11-28–finger-excercise-am-longscale.flac It’s a matter of personal preference, of course, but I like it thumpy. 🤘
Wer an Ruhezeiten glaubt, glaubt auch an den Weihnachtsmann. 🙄 😩
(#xk6wbza) @email@example.com Hehe, indeed. I mean, it sounds like a joke these days (“I need to pause anyway, so I can think”), but, well, it’s not like we’re secretaries anymore who only write down what their bosses told them …
(#xk6wbza) @firstname.lastname@example.org Haha, that reminds me … I actually took a touch typing course as a teenager – and we still had to use typewriters. 😂 Not much left of that knowledge, though, and I don’t know anyone who strictly follows that system … You’re fine. Just do what allows you to type fast. 😁
(#7e5bs4a) @email@example.com Ooh, not sure I’m qualified. I started a year ago myself. 😅 Some stuff comes to mind (better practice 5 minutes every day than 2 hours only on Saturday; learn scales instead of songs; don’t forget to practice with a metronome every now and then), but it feels like it’s super obvious. 🤪
Well, maybe this: YouTube is full of “backing tracks”. That guy, for example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mLfQ2RI2qoI Have it running in the background and then just improvise over it. Of course, you can’t just hit random notes, so one of the easiest things to do is using a pentatonic scale: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rCNZy-pGyIo
I struggle with lots of things and one of those is: I have a hard time anticipating how it’s going to sound (and feel) when I play this note, then that note, and so on. This was always my problem, even with other instruments. And I now think that the reason is: I never actually played nor explored the instrument, I just repeated excercises or songs. Improvising to a backing track helps me a lot with this. 🤔
But as I said, I’m just a newbie myself. Maybe all I said is garbage. 😁
I’m a little spooked by that “statue”, every single time. 🤣
(#xk6wbza) @firstname.lastname@example.org Ya, practice must be fun, otherwise it’s pointless. 😕 (I always have to set up a timer that reminds me to stop. 🤣 If I didn’t do that, I’d just keep at it for hours, and theeeeen I’d get wrist pain again.)
Hmm, don’t you even use these two fingers for typing? 🤔
I like to own my music, too. I still buy CDs.
That’s also a funny excercise: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-HpOJXiImqY
It looks super simple. Then I tried to do it. 🤣 I could barely move my ring finger and it took so much willpower. 🤣 A crazy experience … I’m getting better at it over time. It’s like I can really feel my brain rewiring itself. 🥴
(#ulieqlq) @email@example.com Haha, yeah, I wonder how many years he’s been practicing that riff. 🥴 It’s going to be “a while” until I’m anywhere near that level. But even doing it very slow is super satisfying. 😊
This is gonna be my favorite excercise from now on. What a lovely little melody! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F-ESiIaKJ7w&t=90s
German media says that the UK is running out of alcohol (https://www.tagesschau.de/wirtschaft/weltwirtschaft/alkoholengpass-grossbritannien-101.html). 🥴
(#yilfviq) Yeah, let’s hope so 😊
(#vslp3ba) No, I’m just an idiot. mutt omits displaying the subject if it’s identical to the parent message. Not a bug, just … unfortunate.
(#vslp3ba) Huh. That twt exposed a bug in jenny. The subject line is completely empty. 🤔
(#4ybhe2q) Neat. I can now control Netflix via the infrared remote control of my TV. 🥳 (My setup is a bit weird, because the NUC dispatches the events via SSH to another machine, but the IR stuff turned out to be pretty simple. Not much to tell here, just use lirc.)
I just realized my NUC has a built-in infrared sensor. Let’s see what we can do with that! Too bad that the weekend is already over.
