    non-fiction: C# in Depth, Fourth Edition by Jon Skeet

    fiction: Kalmann by Joachim B. Schmidt. Just finished reading it a day ago. I can really recommend this book. One of my favorite ones so far.

        Enjoying my new WASD V3 88-Key keyboard.

          LOVE their keyboards

          1. 1

            The keyboard is really amazing. But one thing I do miss is that they have no wireless option. And I really don’t know why? Bluetooth is not such a thing today….

            1. 1

              That is definitely a noticeable omission. I hope there’s an aftermarket solution.

              1. 2

                That would be great and I’d definitely be interested!

                  I just learned there are wireless mechanical keyboards for macOS! https://www.keychron.com

              And you even have a real shack that you could paint or go to to run away from the internet :)

              1. 1

                There was quite some painting going on at the house - all the outside surfaces have been redone for example^^

                The shak is for storing 6.5 qm^3 of local wood for the fireplaces, though:

                In summer, when it’s empty and raining outside, I do tend to sit inside it from time to time enjoy life with a cup of coffee and a good book^^

                No MacBook anymore? ;D

                1. 1

                  Unfortunately, the last subjectively ‘good’ MBP was the 2015 model which broke down on me hard close to two years ago.

                  Objectively speaking - or at least to the best of my knowledge, the new MBPs are not capable of running Linux due to loads of proprietary hardware.

                  If only Apple still sold the 2015 model with a RAM, SSD and CPU upgrade, I’d still have a MBP and would have saved weeks of research and tinkering on slightly less differently proprietary hardware(;

                  what’s bad about vimwiki?

                  1. 1

                    To me, nothing. It satisfies my core needs just fine. Been using it for a very long time.

                    1. 1

                      ahh ok. i was just confused because you hate to admit using it ;)

                    I second organice. It works well for journaling with a capture template. It equally works well for other kinds of support documents and todos. You can even generate an agenda out of your notes.

                    Also, it’s FOSS, so you don’t have to worry that your work will be made obsolete at some point.
