There is something about villains falling to their death, isn't there Herr May?
Santer, du gräßlichster aller Halunken, mögest du immer fort an deinem geraubten Gold ersticken.

It's been quiet here. But I figure that in autumn more rubble will float down here!

Sport climbing is coming to the Olympic games next year. Traditionally there are three separate disciplines: Lead, Bouldering, and Speed. But for the Olympics a combined format was chosen meaning that 20 athletes compete in all three disciplines for a single combined rating and podium (men and women compete separately).
After watching a good deal of world cups and the ongoing world championship in Tokyo, the combined is such a strange format. Many athletes are specialists in one or two disciplines and fall short in the third (mostly speed vs lead/bouldering).
The way the competitors are ranked is also very strange: The rankings of a competitor in each of the three discipline are multiplied together. The lower the final ranking, the better. Multiplying is such a weird measure, it is for instance not a norm in the mathematical sense. I wonder what the advantage over something like the Euclidian distance is.
For example, finishing 1st in one discipline but 5th and 20th in the others results in the same ranking of 100 as finishing 4th, 5th and 5th. In my opinion the climber with the latter result is a much better "allrounder". Isn't that what this >combined< format is all about? With the Euclidian distance the rankings are 20.6 and 8.1 respectively - much more reasonable.
In any case, here the highlights of womens' and mens' qualification. Looking forward to the finals in the coming two days.

"Look here boy! Do you know one thing?" - "What's that?" - "I said do you know one thing?" - "I know two things!" - "Alright then."
"I'll Be Glad When You're Dead, You Rascal You" (1942) by Louis Armstrong. One of my favorite melodies! Amazing clip of Louis singing and playing and Velma Middleton dancing a chorus. Also featured is Sid Catlett on drums!
Addendum: So many little things to notice in the clip. I love how Louis acts and a couple of band member together act out the song with him. My favorite? The pianist!

Today I spent an outrageous amount of time learning how to use the CAD software Onshape. I need it to do 3d printing.
Well after hours and hours, I successfully managed to model a decent looking flower pot fitting my desired dimensions. I'm curious if the print-out will be functional but I have to be patient.

Today I had an hour-long struggle with the damn dhcp. But I endured and was victorious and now I feel ever-so-slightly accomplished:
I managed to connect my Raspberry Pi via ethernet directly to my laptop and have a dhcp server (dnsmasq) assign to it an IP address. Now I am able to ssh into the Pi without having it hanging on my router. The Pi has access to the internet as well because the laptop is connected via wifi and routes the requests from the Pi. Awesome!

One of my imports from Herräng Dance Camp 2019: "Redskin Rhumba" by Charlie Barnet. This driving rhythm by the trombones all throughout the song - lovely!
The same riff also appears in the intro and outro of "Cherokee" also by Charlie Barnet. The rest of that song is not all that great for dancing though.
