Da die Sparkasse spontan Kontoführungsgebühren erhoben hat (30 Cent je Vorgang, 1€ je Dauerauftrag, lol), gucke ich wohl nach ner neuen Bank.

So aus Prinzip wäre vielleicht eine genossenschaftliche Bank gut (BBBank und Sparda fielen mir ins Auge), aber ich bin auch sonst für Empfehlungen offen. Soll halt gut funktionieren (gutes Online Banking, genug Möglichkeit, Bargeld abzuheben), und ethisch mindestens erträglich sein.

Empfehlungen und boosts gerne :)

if you have a personal web log, please reply with the url!

an attempt to collect everyone’s blogs - so as to not let precious non-commercial content go unread and unnoticed - is likely the only time i’ll ever ask:

please boost this toot.

@ThisQueerBashesBack @cypnk It's all a little ridiculous, given that I learned to code on a 1.7KHz, 16K RAM, cassette-tape-storage TRS-80 Model I.

A $100 RasPi setup is usable today, and good enough for anything a normal person would do, except we write software for much higher spec machines; that's where the money is.

There’s an #Arduino based Apollo DSKY mimic project on Kickstarter

kickstarter.com/projects/43898

“OPEN DSKY Apollo 50th Anniversary - Make 100”

“You can use it to simply display the current time, your GPS coordinates, play some sound bytes from the Apollo era, etc. This is an ideal device to teach or learn about space, history & programming”

Sadly, it can’t be used to actually run your own DIY command module

European tooters!

Where do I order custom patches? Ideally something within Europe (shipping costs & ecology), and not somthing that prides itself on military grade / military style patches.

Funny thing.

I remember "inventing Uber" over dinner with my dad, when pondering the intersection of Google maps, Android phones, and lame public transport.

A few years, Uber was all over the news. This was not the first time I've had that kind of experience.

Moral of the story: I'm so smart!

No wait. That's not it. The real moral of the story: ideas are not special. Thoughtful experts in any particular field will tend to invent similar things.

Execution, and luck, make all the difference.

You asked for recommendations of books, here they are.

- The Dispossessed: For scifi folks. Utopian, anarchist, feminist scifi. ♥ Part of the Hainish cycle.
- Wizard of Earth: For fantasy folks. Coming of age story with a lot of plottage.
- Left Hand of Darkness: For SciFi folks. It's a take on gender's role from the 60s. Part of the Hainish Cycle.
