Ignorance, incompetence, corruption.

Following politics always makes me wonder which combination of those three is the reason behind another ignorant and uneducated decision.

And in the end it shouldn't even matter because each and everyone of those should disqualify you from being a representative paid by taxes.

"We have enormous freedom. That’s not a gift that was given to us, it’s a legacy that was left to us by centuries of struggle. By centuries of people that most of whose names are completely forgotten, the ones who created the freedom and the rights we now have, and that will be taken away unless you constantly defend them."

This is genuinely useful and informative; a thread about the numerous systemic factors that led to the conditions suspected of causing the Ethiopian Air crash. tl;dr software is only a band-aid for broader issues

I also properly configured "Hypermode" for capslock, today.

Pressing it without any other keys yields Esc.

Pressing it with another key results in all 4 modifiers being pressed at the same time (⇧+⌃+⌥+⌘), which is referred to as the "Hyper" hotkey.

Instantly switching between apps never was that quick & comfortable. It uses the left hand exclusively.

Day 4 of seriously working with and configuring Emacs. Elisp feels so much nicer to work with, than vimscript. Even though I experienced some performance "hickups", it shoots vim out of the water. If you have other plugin recommendations, let me know.

Currently working with OrgMode, Magit, Helm.

„How to communicate with a software engineer.“ I still have teary eyes from laughing. What a great start into another week of software engineering. 🥳

To sum up one semester of courses:

1. You _really_ do NOT want to work with this Crapware™
2. Under no circumstances click on a category you do not need to enter — you may not be able to leave it without filling in information you do not have
3. F4 is help
4. Encountered an error? Just hammer the enter key until it's gone.

I've never experienced a worse piece of software. It may take another semester for me to get rid of all those swears I grew accustomed to now...

openscore.cc is a project that wants to liberate sheet music from copyright and from paper! They invite and coordinate volunteers to transcribe public domain scans from imslp.org using musescore.org. Should be a great learning experience! 🎼
