My first package: github.com/LoyVanBeek/telegram
(tested on ROS2 Eloquent). Allows to send and receive messages on your robot via Telegram instant messaging. Super handy to send simple commands or even build a conversation interface like in youtu.be/AiuS5d112o0?t=82

Somehow I have this fear that due to working from home since 2019 already, is that I develop some weird *annoying* habit, like slurping my tea or whatever else. Maybe I already have 😳

LOL: Video-call with colleagues all working from home. There is a bird singing, loud. *everyone* checks to see where is a bird outside their window.

Tip when working from home and need to video-call:
Your phone's microphone is often better that the one in your laptop. And you can carry it around, so you can sit on the couch for a sec.
Also: keep yourself muted when you aren't speaking, for various reasons

Met de Scouts Vrijdag-groep van @ScoutingBoxtel@twitter.com ook geen gewone opkomst morgen, maar ook online! We gaan een mini @iscoutgame@twitter.com doen met de kinderen vanuit thuis

Drukke dag bij @ScoutingBoxtel@twitter.com : klussen aan de Mickey Mountain youtu.be/LH2fCaVjrzo en natuurlijk:

Would recruiters on LinkedIn really think that when they send a job description text copied verbatim, with just the actual employer name blocked out, one cannot find out what company it is really about? If you make so little effort to keep your client secret, just be honest&open

Such a pity, @Google@twitter.com assistant enabled speaker can't take commands from @TechUnited@twitter.com 's HERO robot.

Using `git bisect` always makes me feel like some sort of magician, especially when I can use `git bisect run` to automagically tell when a commit is good or not. Unfortunately dependencies muddy the waters but still super handy tool

No woman in a burqa (or a hijab or a burkini) has ever done me any harm. But I was sacked (without explanation) by a man in a suit. Men in suits missold me pensions and endowments, costing me thousands of pounds. A man in a suit led us on a disastrous and illegal war. Men in suits led the banks and crashed the world economy. Other men in suits then increased the misery to millions through austerity. If we are to start telling people what to wear, maybe we should ban suits.
