Just a few minutes into my walk I saw a raven chopping up a slow worm in three parts. :-( I rescued the reptile as best as what you can call rescue in that state. Crazy how the the tail and middle part kept on twisting hard for minutes. I didn't see where the raven went hiding, so I can only hope it did not reattack after the slow worm went its way and I left the scene.

The small forest pond was covered in pollen, looked like a liming truck went by. And the other one with the duck was really oily. Way more than last time. Didn't look healthy at all. :-(

And, of course, at some point the directory items should be clickable, so you can navigate the tree as usual. That’s much less interesting than delving into threading, though. 😅

After a bug in the Open Watcom OS/2 resource compiler has been fixed (imagine that – they still fix bugs related to OS/2! 🤯💚), I was able to make some more progress with the OS/2 GUI version of my little disk usage tool. It now has a menu bar and a dialog to open another directory:

https://movq.de/v/2ea508ef9a/MVI_7479.MOV.mp4

The video includes the ZMODEM transfer process of the 50 kB .EXE file from my laptop. It’s a bit lengthy, but I kept it in for nostalgia. 😅

Next up is probably multithreading: Do the disk scanning in a background thread so the UI doesn’t freeze. (This is running on a Compact Flash card, a real hard disk would be much slower.)

#CadaLivroOSeuLeitor é a hashtag em Português para a campanha #EveryBookItsReader da Wikimedia.

Este ano andava a fazer (silenciosamente e sem pressão) a minha própria forma de celebrar o mês, fazendo uma edição por dia, tipicamente na Wikidata, relacionada com livros.

Mas parece que este ano a @wikimediapt@masto.pt vai trazer de forma mais oficial esta campanha a Portugal, com a apresentação a decorrer, muito adequadamente, no dia de abertura da Feira do Livro em Évora:

Reading an e-mail about an update to Terms of Service: "These updates will take place on April 8, 2024."

I think, "good, these guys warn in advance and give a chance for people that don't want or cannot accept the new terms to take their data and close their accounts... 8th of April? That's not much time is it? We're at... April 9. Hm? When did I get this email?"

@movq Being lazy is what I did today. :-)

That's a bitter, but true résumé. I'm pretty sure that I first heard of the Saharan air layer only a few years ago. I would be very surprised if my knowledge is more than a decade old. This could have been a big enough topic to be covered in geography lessons, but it doesn't ring a bell. Just like with everything, there is always something "new" to learn.

At least it's been a thing since July 1997. :-D I wouldn't be surprised if this goes on for thousands of years. The German Wikipedia article on that matter doesn't explicitly say anything about the time scale, but reading it my assertion corroborates. There is a recorded event in the year 1901.

The kick is, if you want to borrow money, all interests are super high (10%+). You can't "borrow to invest " in a savings account.

@prologic Goldman Sachs, through Apple, is giving 4.4% on $100K (minimum). Four months rolling CDs in our bank are giving up to 5.10% on $50K, and up. Government treasure bills are around that, some a little less, some a little more.

@bender That's precisely what I'm talking about. Investing in good businesses that are well established. If they also produce an income in the form of a distribution or dividend, that that's even better. YOu can have some tax benefits too if you do it right. But the trap? (I think) is falling into this false sense of security of thinking you can leverage up to the bank's LVR (Loan to Value Ratio) only to get caught up. Best to be conservative so you can take the wild swings and obviously diversity.

@bender No I meant like a "savings account" 🤣 You guys (us) are lucky I guess? A savings account here in Oz barely gets you 0.35%pa to 1.5%pa depending on how much money you have in it (0-$10k, $10-20k, $20-$30k, up to $50k)

Is this for real?

According to this news piece, #Chechnya is placing a #ban on slow or fast music. And 120bpm is already too fast for them: all music should "correspond to a tempo of 80 to 116 beats per minute".

I'm tempted to organize a to-be-banned music compilation now...

@prologic now you are trolling. LOL. Highest savings (or CDs) around here renders around 5%. No one is going to lend you money at that interest rate, or less, like, ever.

@prologic can you be more specific? Arguably, borrowing to buy real estate might be worth it. Buying a successful, established, business might be worth it. Both are incoming producing assets.

Oh boy, that was fricking hot. I hiked to the dairy farm to get some fresh milk for waffles and was totally soaked when I returned.

Fortunately, the Saharan air layer reduced the direct sunlight. A slightly older man and I talked a bit how weird the sky looked and he asked me whether that has always been like that. He didn't recall experiencing anything like that in his youth. I really don't know, but I reckon that this is not a new phenomenon. I also don't recall seeing that when I was a child, however, I was also not interested in stuff like that back then. Hence, it could be selection bias. But it also might be more frequent with climate change. 02 shows the yellow, hazy sky quite good if I say so myself. It doesn't compare to last week or whenever that was, though. Last time was much more intense.

Baking waffles in the later evening on the balcony was nice. Temperatures dropped to just 24°C or so. Much more pleasant. The noise level in the neighborhood was also surprisingly low. And no mozzies around, another surprise. Quite the opposite when I was in the forest. Lots of insect clouds that followed me around and tried to bite me.

I witnessed a Eurasian jay land in a tree. On approach it broke off a rotten branch that fell down. The bird luckily selected a different branch to land on. That was crazy.
