Reading about the history of The Predator games. At the cottage. Responsibly enjoying white wine (in one's underwear). The best of Rush is playing on the background. Bees are buzzing lazily, while a bird is feeding its chicks on a nearby tree branch.
Or, more succinctly: I'm on vacation.
P.S. I had to pause Rush to properly type this out. Press play.
I'm supposed to profile the simulation code I've been working on for a bit over a year from three different phases during its development. Looking at the year old code I can only say one thing: One year younger me deserves to be slapped hard for being so fucking stupid. /slap @Hunaja
Then again, it would be sad to find out the code was better a year ago than it's now... 🤔
Personally I've never used perl for anything, and I never will, if using cpan is a reflection of how things are done in the perl world. This is horribly, horribly, horribly messy compared to the user experience of e.g. pip. I mean, the default solution to uninstalling a module is to find out all the files that cpan installed and then manually remove them? Well, I guess I better grab "stat" and start hunting then.

I'm starting the slow process of changing email addresses. I've been using the free one from the search engine people until now, but I'm changing to #protonmail
I'm not looking forward to the process, but I am looking forward to the moment it's finished.
I was not aware "toot" was slang for farting :D. Well, human language is an evolving thing, so let's slowly change that meaning as more and more of us non-native speakers start tooting without understanding the aforementioned connotations.
#introductions My first toot!
I'm a C++ developer, currently studying & working in the area of computational physics and gpgpu programming. Been a user for many years, but finally this year decided to give a go. Also very excited for PinePhone later this year!
Now let's figure out this thing (you can see I already found the emoticons...).
Interests: gpu programming, Linux, Rocket League, Malazan Book Of The Fallen, p&p rpgs, metal music, synthwave, walks in forests
