Three things you need to know about the universe 

1) It's big. Really big.
2) It doesn't officially have a name but people call it Bob.
3) It really wishes people wouldn't call it Bob.

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!"

I have been notified by an Admin here that they are getting 60 reports a day about my account. As far as I can tell, I'm not breaking any rules, and I've done my best to be a good person here. But this admin is going to suspend my account.

Ich habe mir für 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 ausführe, funktioniert alles. Leider tut es das nicht bei einem Commit (und Push).

Es beinhaltet nicht mehr als das:

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? 🤔
