WPSR by Matthias PfefferleMatthias Pfefferle (notiz.blog)
Auf dem CloudFest Hackathon im März, hab‘ ich mich ein wenig mit Alain Schlesser über WordPress und Plugin-Entwicklung unterhalten. Alain meinte, dass er, wenn es das Plugin hergibt und es zeitlich möglich ist, immer zuerst eine generische Library bauen und diese dann über ein WordPress-Plugin...

Now I remember again why I don’t like touching WordPress plugins. It’s this accepted mess of not following any modern best practices. Good to see I’m not alone: https://notiz.blog/2022/05/15/wpsr/

I’m aware of the irony that I’m also using WordPress here. You see, it’s not that easy to get rid of a grown installation dating back to 2004 and convert it into something else.

Also yay for

Arms n legs burning. That was a proper workout at my pell ⚔️. Really out of shape. I’d like to blame this on a certain pandemic but that’d be a lie. Oh look, a drama filter effect…

In Edna & Harvey: Harvey’s New Eyes, players return to the world of adventure game hit Edna & Harvey: The Breakout. Be prepared to meet many old friends and discover many new hand-made cartoon locations, realized in full HD glory!

Finished Edna & Harvey: Harvey’s New Eyes. That was a fun sequel! No idea about the English version but the voice acting for the German version is superb. It may be a little bit short. Steam claims I spent 7.5h in it but I’m pretty sure that I left it running at some point to deal with real-life stuff.

Anyway, good point and click fun. Can recommend.

My 2022 predictions from 2012 by @edent (shkspr.mobi)
Exactly a decade ago, I asked "Why Can't Red Dwarf Predict The Future?" That is - sci-fi writers can imagine interstellar travel and sentient computers, but they think the future will still involve developing film photographs, library fines, and 3-pin electrical plugs. At the end of the post, I said...

Ahahaha the microwave’s clock hits home. God’s I detest that thing. Ours is single knob operated and yes you get to move that rotary encoder for every feckin minute you want to add past midnight.

It’s easier to pull the fuse around midnight than dealing with this thing ever time a power hickup happens.

Hm… Diaspora: Shattered Armistice ( ) didn’t want to start any more. Found only this in the launcher:

The executable did not generate a flag file

Turned out my install was missing some 32bit lib:

ldd /home/beko/.local/share/lutris/runners/wine/lutris-ge-6.16-1-x86_64/lib/wine/i386-unix/openal32.dll.so
linux-gate.so.1 (0xf7eca000)
libopenal.so.1 => not found
libc.so.6 => /lib/libc.so.6 (0xf7c8f000)
/lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0xf7ecc000)

A dnf install wine-openal.i686 fixed this for me.

Yes, I know there is a native Linux PC version but it’s a pain in the neck to compile 🤷

Morning. Feeling good for the first time in months that early (for me). Hope I’m not coming up with anything 😂 Anyway, coffee first. Have a good one too!
