I finished an expedition in and the reward is this golden _almost_ colonial viper that should be right down my alley. I also learnt some new words: Garish, gaudy and vulgar (thanks internet people :D) (beko.famkos.net/t/254j)

Doing vector art for the first time, starting in Krita like the time I made the new Samerion logo.

#Krita's SVG tools are fantastic. Not powerful, just easy and intuitive. Inkscape's gotta learn.

Definitiv ein erfolgreicher Abend!

Erst der Prototyp, und dann die (noch unverpackte) finale Version der künftigen Kinderwagenscheinwerfer 😁

bugwarrior is seriously one of the most underrated little helpers out there. It picks up my tickets/tasks from _various_ bugtracking systems and syncs them with my taskwarrior tasks 😍

Did you know that hostnamectl also has a host parameter?for i in {bob,alice,steam,punk,younameit}; do echo "$i:"; hostnamectl --host "$i" status | grep -A1 "Operating System"; done
Sometimes this is a faster way to compile a quick list instead of asking Monitoring. Uh Oh, looks like we have some EOL here. (beko.famkos.net/t/2347)

I was delighted to read about the digital reconstruction of a chain mail based on an exhibit next door.

Landesmuseum Württemberg, Stuttgart / H. Zwietasch (CC BY-SA)

The piece in question (exhibit F 14,01-2) was found in a grave near 72501 Gammertingen, Germany and consists of ~45.000 iron pieces. It’s well preserved and can be viewed in our local state museum or online at https://www.landesmuseum-stuttgart.de/sammlung/sammlung-online/dk-details/?dk_object_id=1280 – both basically next door for me.

The interesting part is that it’s a mix of riveted and stamped rings, also known as “Roman Mesh”. I own a similar piece myself and I’m fascinated by this type of mail.


This pattern was digital reconstructed using Blender and it’s polygonal modelling functions and uploaded to SketchFab under CC license by it’s authors:

So dear game devs, there is no longer an excuse for shoddy chain mail patterns in games – here it’s served on a silver platter 😛

…and fuck me, that post made yet another brain-dead Fedi bot jump my profile.

This is why we can't have nice things!

Ah, how I love it how YouTube comments are silently dropped again and again. Just like on Farcebook. I mean it's not like the account was _forced_ on me back in the G+ days when Google decided "Why yes, let's combine this silo full of tech-y users with this silo full of toxic shitpost commenters".

So here we go. An AI probably decided my OLD and human account is a bot. Mebbe I should up my game on typos so I sound like an average modern teen.

The spirits that I called? More tech won't save it.

Erinnert Ihr Euch noch? Anfang des Monats hat Jens Spahn behauptet, der Datenschutz würde seine Digitalisierungsbestrebungen und Pandemiebekämpfung verzögern. Ich habe das als Unwahrheit bezeichnet. Beim aktuellen Vorhaben 3G am Arbeitsplatz kann man das übrigens leicht überprüfen.
