Okay, I need to write another for here, don't I?

Hi, I'm Fabian!

Theoretically, I do unixy computery things that you may or may not care about - the fish shell, some weird tiling script for kwin,...

I also enjoy music - I grew up with metal and blues but am trying to expand. Also videogames.

But in practice, what I do here most of the time is stupid puns, and jeansifying people's avatars.

I'm german but ~98% of my posts are in english.

I don't quite know what this is.

Well, I guess it's an irish short film.

But, like, what is it? It's... stop motion, but with people? WHy? What?

So apparently FreeBSD claims "xterm-256color" can display 67 colors?

> A Unix tool to the core, AWK is designed to do one thing well: to filter and transform lines of text

If you need an "and", is it not two things?

That's my main beef with that "unix philosophy" phrase that people keep throwing around: Nobody can agree on what one thing *is*!

It's nice as a guideline - "try not to do too much", "focus on your core" or something, but as this holy grail it never really worked, unless you're writing the 2000th cat implementation (without "-v" of course)
