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.

Yesterday wasn't my day. I spilled coffee in my bookshelf and by precious music encyclopedia from the 1970s was damaged. I guess the floor under the bookshelf is damaged too, but I can't move the bookshelf. And then I spilled apple juice all over my kitchen floor and damaged my carpet.

Maybe I'll just sit in my armchair and do nothing today...

I want to quickly draw a sketch of my bathroom for renovating purposes. Just an outline with walls, shower, sink, WC and so on. Any software suggestion? Online works fine.

Welcome, Sorrow.

And I really, really hate dealing with UTF-8 in . Make sure everything is read and written in UTF-8, and wouldn't you know, some stupid module does NOT expect native Perl strings but byte-coded UTF-8.

Yes, I'm looking at you, standard Perl library.
