People often wonder why printers are so cantankerous but frankly any device that embeds pigmented runes in the remains of long-dead trees is going to be stricken by an ancient faerie curse from the start

"I'd like to return my companion-bot, serial code JX99031."

"Sure; and could you describe the fault you encountered?"

"Fault? Nah, it's perfect. Never been so well taken care of. Hate having to send it back honestly."

"Then... why are you returning it?"

"This will sound really weird."

"Try me."

"It misses it's mum."

"Oh! That's a rare glitch. No return necessary, it can visit the factory any time during business hours."

"Oh good!"

Ich habe mir fΓΌr meine Bachelorarbeit einen post-update #git-hook eingerichtet, der nach einem Commit das erzeugte PDF in die ownCloud kopieren soll.
Wenn ich das Skript von Hand ausfΓΌhre, funktioniert alles. Leider tut es das nicht bei einem Commit (und Push).

Es beinhaltet nicht mehr als das:

#!/bin/sh
exec cp -u src/bachelorarbeit.pdf ~/Documents/HAW/.

Unter src liegen dabei die LaTeX-Dateien und auch das erzeugte PDF.

Jemand ne Idee, was ich verkehrt mache? πŸ€”

1. Continually ask "Why?"
2. When you learn something, learn it to where you can explain it to a child.
3. Instead of arbitrarily memorizing things, look for the explanation that makes it obvious.

I tend to stay away from politics on Mastodon, but this is some really great background on the whole Russian hacking hysteria in the US:
