@hafnia For what it's worth, I think she's the weird one! That clearly sounds like a circumstance where being distracted is fully acceptable and even expected.


Hi, my supervisor is making me feel guilty for not working over the weekend, while I've been cooking at the light of candles since the beginning of the week because I work during the full opening hours of the neighboring stores selling light bulbs, how is it going for you? :chick_blanket:

Does someone know of a program / support structure in germany that is helping young trans adults / teens to get away from abusive parents?

@maunzi That would be so great!
Maybe with a giant metal straw, with one end at my desk, the other end in an automatic water boiler, and some compartments on the way containing instant coffee which would get mixed as the coffee travel through :blobcatsurprised:

But also look at this! I was struggling with inkscape and my wavy surface looked horrible, now I have a cool 3D (although not vectorial) drawing, in perspective, with the correct font at the correct size to go with the rest of the documents.
It was a pain as the 3D module is not clearly enough documented that I understood how to use the functions (maybe if one knows c++), I had to find other people's code to copy, but so worth it :blobcatcoffee:

So I'm on my way to pick up my boyfriend who's visiting me the next few days, I had to wake up at an indecent hour and that was not helped by the fact that I was drinking coffee remotely debugging the makefile I just learned to do to automatically analyse and plot some data and make a 3D drawing in asymptote (which I also spent the last two days learning, and that's not easy with such a difficult name to look up) before compiling the final pdf.
It's all for my paper so it's allowed :shrug_r2:

Bones story 

@hafnia Terrifying :ms_scream:
I was picturing human bones until I saw the toots giving the precision after the thread, now I can't sleep anymore. So creepy.
But it made a nicely written story, trilling to read :chick_cry_happy:

Work stuff 

I spent the weekend in the lab, even my ex supervisor came in to see if she could figure out what I'm doing wrong.

Presented the (absence of) results to my professor this afternoon, he said it's time to give up and start writing, I'm too exhausted to know if I'm sad or happy about that.

I don't want to be too happy too early and curse it but I think I am measuring *something*, there are some oscillations in this noise :blobcatsurprised:

Work stuff 

I posted on the digital labbook today's entry labelled as "might maybe have what could pass for a possible signal again", and I give up! Most people left 5 hours ago, it's past bedtime and I want to go home.

So today's the day I was supposed to be done, next week is the "if really really needed" extra week, and I didn't yet find if what I want to measure is measurable :blobugh:

@brisling Hi! I was browsing your profile and saw your old advice, I'm curious and I have a question: do you also need their bokashi yeast thing to sprinkle in it? Or do you know of something more easily found able to replace it?

@ifixcoinops Sounds strange to me that any petrol station would be close by, I think I've seen 3 of them in my whole city so far, but I guess I shouldn't be surprised.

@Nezchan It sounds horrible! I'm sorry you are litterally forced to live like that :blobsleepless:

I mean I thought it was bad as in "nearest supermarket is a couple km away", or "no public transport to the neighbouring school", or "too expensive to have small buisnesses here" but like, *illegal* to build anything else than a specific kind of house until the horizon?

I just watched this video where a canadian is showing how neighbourhoods in the Netherland have small shops and restaurants mixed with housing, and he also showed that it's not like that in Canada and the US, and now I understand what the deal with north american "suburbia" is :ms_scream:


chΓ’teau? ah yes, I know french. that means "cat water"
