👋 Hi! I'm Christian

… and this is my personal website.

Life of Alfons is only available in German. I write about our life with Alfons, a male Labrador dog we got at 2021-10-4. He is deaf.

      A pretty interesting article about gap buffers and ropes, two data structures to represent files in memory for an editor.

      Gaming seems horribly broken to me these days. Everything is packed with micro transactions, and everything is just a slot machine to get you going via a dopamin hit.

      Haskell Researchers Announce Discovery of Industry Programmer Who Gives a Shit

      Hilarious article 🤣


      "We knew that there are precisely 38 people who give a shit about Haskell," said Van Der Linde, "because every Haskell-related reddit post gets exactly 38 upvotes. It's a pure, deterministic function of no arguments -- that is, the result is independent of what we actually announce. But there are only 37 of us on our mailing list, so we figured there was a lurker somewhere."

      PC hardware disappoints me time and time again. I ordered a workstation for faster Rust build times. An i7 13700 with 16 cores and 24 threads, 64gb RAM and a 1tb Samsung 990 NVMe ssd.

      While the performance is better than I was hoping for, damn, this machine when used in a casual edit&recompile workflow is as loud as our Dell servers. Fucking hell, how is anyone able to work with this thing on your desk?!
