I’m really starting to like OpenMP. Especially when I’m doing simple graphics stuff, where each pixel is processed independently. Throw in a `#pragma`, boom, speed-up of a factor of 3.5-3.8 on my quad core. 🤯
Guess I should have included the machine in the video, because context matters. That thing is from around 1995 and still kicking.
This Mastodon thingy is a bit wonky when it comes to interactions between different instances. Favoriting a toot from another instance? Replying to it? Following people? Often fails with “something went wrong”.

I feel like I’m 80. 🙄
Haven’t found much of public interest yet, but a bunch of floppies with software that my grandfather wrote in the 1990ies. 😲
Also these lovely little listings. Zoom in, they were printed on a dot matrix printer.

Got a little surprise gift, a “squeeze filler” fountain pen. (The person who gave it to me thought it was just a pen, didn’t really care.) As I do calligraphy from time to time, I happen to own a few flasks of ink! Now, let’s see how much of a mess we can make …
Why I love the Finnish language: No grammatical gender (easier to learn, less politics), written almost exactly as spoken, simpler alphabet (no diacritics, no ambiguities like in some languages, e.g. in German “f”, “v”, and “ph” can sound exactly the same), numbers follow a simple and consistent pattern, and finally, sounds awesome. Why I hate it: Kirjakieli (written Finnish) vs. Puhekieli (spoken), you basically have to learn two languages. 🤦
