Hair cut selfie eye contact 

First hair cut since the pandemic started! Yay for vaccines! Turns out my new barber went to the MN Barber school on E Lake, which was my old barber. New barber said he didn't cut women's hair. I said I wanted a man's cut. He asked about 5 times if I wanted short hair. I said I did and showed him a picture of the style of cut I wanted and one of me after my last barber cut. He was friendly and did a good cut and I gave him a nice tip. I found my new barber!

Echt: eine super Aktion! Aus den Kommentaren: »Es ist erstaunlich, wie die Personen, die sich im Fachbereich 31 für Falschparker stark machen, bei einem Blumenanhänger plötzlich enorme Handlungsmotivation entwickeln. Wo es bei Falschparkern zuverlässig heißt "keine Kapazität" oder "Ahndung unverhältnismäßig" oder wie an vielen Stellen in Mannheim ganz offiziell toleriert, obwohl StVO-widrig, hier hat man plötzlich Personal und Zeit zur Verfügung.«

Good morning to you.

Today lets smile at strangers, make eye contact when talking with people in service jobs, and do things that make us feel fulfilled and accomplished.

Apparently the Audobon Society is asking people on the East Coast of the US to take down their bird feeders. There's a songbird virus going around and the birds need to social distance.

Hemming pants in the kitchen. I have no other workspace free yet. Boxes are everywhere! At least I found the sewing box!

Just discovered and fixed a (potentially serious) bug in Dolphin, KDE's file manager and generic file model:

Sorting by size would cause an unstable sort order under certain circumstances.

This sounds innocent at first, until you realize this also causes it to expand a folder's content into the wrong view parent: you expand folder A, but all its files show up below folder B.

You may think you're deleting an empty folder, but it's not actually empty 😟

Fix here: https://invent.kde.org/system/dolphin/-/merge_requests/232

Ooh! Now it's Thistle & Shamrock hour at KBEM. I guess I'll just stay on the station!
