Somebody sent me a bottle of gin in the mail. It's a hand-numbered »Cranky Turtle« bottle, only a few hundred seem to exist. No name, no note.

It was my birthday on Monday, and Julia and I love turtles, and I love gin, so it does fit! But still… I never got an anonymous gift. Thank you, unknown friend! ♥️

Even in lack of a computer (mine is still being repaired) I wanted to enter Flickr's »Shine a Light« contest.

From a ticket I'm subscribed to: »TODO: fix that in a fixed way«

Corporate bullshit level: I'm using Microsoft Teams on my smartphone, which is placed on a stand in front of my computer screen, to free resources on my Surface (which I have to use as workstation in the homeoffice) so that it doesn't freeze constantly because of overheating.

German politics, police being nazis 

Police in Stuttgart apparently does heritage research on their (German) suspects to find something non-German in their ancestry. This is so fucked up. How is society letting this just happen.

Die Hausratversicherung will nicht für die Reparatur meines Laptops aufkommen (Internet sagt: Ursache Überspannung), weil zu dem Zeitpunkt, als es kaputt ging, kein Blitz eingeschlagen ist.

In den Versicherungsbedingungen steht »Blitzschlag oder andere atmosphärische Elektrizität«.

Kennt Ihr eine Datenquelle für Messwerte zu atmosphärischer Elektrizität?

Canadian food 

I was today years old when I learned what Poutine is. Now I kind of want to try it.

Hat jemand Erfahrungen mit Der Defekt meines Laptops (2016 12" MacBook ging plötzlich aus und geht nicht mehr an) ist laut allen Quellen, die ich gefunden habe, vermutlich ein defekter IC auf dem Logicboard. Die Website und Erfahrungsberichte würden mich motivieren, den Rechner mal da hinzuschicken, auf daß sie den IC identifizieren und austauschen. Meinungen?

The internet says sometimes it will start working again after a while. Keep your fingers crossed for me, will you?

This 12" MacBook is some 3 years old now. Today, out of the blue, it went dead and won't turn on anymore. I am quite disappointed and frustrated.

Selfie (through large camera, no eye contact) 

COVID-19 tracing app, Germany 

So. I installed this app. It looks much more polished than I expected.

(No, I am not so paranoid and hybrid that I think I must or even can control what code runs on my smartphone. I consider data on electronic devices compromised by default. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯)

(My company is looking for another developer in my team, that is, it's not my own job of course)

LinkedIn recommends me to apply to the job I already have. »Your profile matches the job description, and you know the job poster!« Wonder why, LinkedIn…

Oh my gosh, Daniel Radcliffe's response to all of R*wling's TERF bullshit is both eloquent and delightful.

"Transgender women are women. Any statement to the contrary erases the identity and dignity of transgender people and goes against all advice given by professional health care associations who have far more expertise on this subject matter than either Jo or I."
