I wanted to call myself "Shellman the Ingenious Tortoise", but it didn't fit the name field on ...

Pinned toot

I'm a father, musician, academic, work psychologist and former sysadmin. Skalman (Shellman) is a character in a Swedish comic for kids. He is an ingenious tortoise who invents all sorts of things, including spacecraft and time machines. He's also a know-it-all, and he slavishly follows his food-and-sleep clock (which is why people used to call me 'Skalman').

I toot as an academic/psychologist as @drbjork and as a musician as @bluebirch. I'm also in Swedish as @fenomenologen.

@ConnyDuck Tusky keeps krasching on me in the background... not sure how to pin down this error.

Bose 700 or Sony WH-1000MX3?

Or some other noise cancelling headphones, preferably a pair that works even without music on?

Asking because my oldest child's noise cancelling headphones broke down and they can't be at school without them.

Why is date handling in so incredibly buggy and inconsistent? Why do I get the impression that the entire Perl ecosystem is a huge pile of spaghetti? Why didn't I learn back in the day so that I could use a proper programming language now that I don't have the time to learn a new one?

The headphones i got with my first smartphone ever (a HTC Desire S) isn't that bad, after all. Still using them.

I need equipment for music production at home. I have no idea what to buy. I used #Cubase 2.0 on Atari ST back in the day, and nowadays I use #Musescore.

I know how to use a #sequencer, but I know nothing about recording and audio tracks (although @Linuxtjej has some knowledge).

I don't have much money.

I know #Linux and #MacOS. #Windows makes me angry.

Where do I start?

My for Android begun to cause me trouble a couple of weeks ago. It added a backslash to some of my images when uploading, like IMG\.jpg.

Today I realised it wasn't Nextcloud that was buggy. It is indeed the camera app of my that adds a backslash to some - but not all - file names when taking photos.

😭 On microsoft's hostile practices 😭,, blocking disroot emails.

Two more photos. The first is a tree a beaver has gnawed on. I've got beavers practically on my doorstep.

Friend of mine is looking for a developer for a small assignment, basically bug-fixing.

Send me DM for contact info.

Please boost!

I guess you can still read it today. The internet still rests on IPv4, TCP, UDP, DNS, basic routing, et cetera.

This is one of the most useful books I have ever read:

"Internet Core Protocols" by Eric. A. Hall.

I wish there was a extension that synced directly with the servers.

With all services I have tried so far I end upp with bookmarks .
