Okay, time for my . :)

Hi, I'm Sven! ๐Ÿ‘‹

I'm a happily married and very curious IT consultant from Berlin in his young thirties. I'm into podcasts, movies, books and language, and also enjoy discussions about tech, society, politics and the usual stuff of everyday life.

Even though I'm German, I'm trying something new by establishing English as my primary posting language. I'm always open for improvement, so feel free to hit me up with corrections or suggestions at any time. :)

Typical Monday: starting a two-hour call with the a confession: I forgot *the* relevant data for the call at home.

Well, at least we all have more time for other work now.

I appreciate that Aldi is picking up our traditional Christmas food on a regular basis. :)

Is there something like for video games? :)

I'm currently part of an Appointment Tetris run of my colleague. Therefore, I get an e-mail about every two hours, shifting our appointment to a different time.

I'm sure I could find a bookmaker in the UK where you could then bet on when (or if) the appointment will finally happen.

I'm a big fan of fully voiced RPGs. Sadly, it seems that most RPGs still focus on text which makes a lot of them somewhat unattractive. :-/

Okay folks. Given that almost 94% of the year has passed already, it's time for a reminder. A few months ago, I wrote about a tradition of mine. If you have missed it, you can read about it again here:

As for the reminder: If you want to pick up the tradition yourself, remember to get a ready within the next three or four weeks. :-)

If you really want to help Firefox succeed, file a bug on when you find a broken website. Don't just switch back to Chrome; let Mozilla know there's a problem so they can try to fix it.

When browsers lose market share, they fall into the "compatibility death spiral." Sites don't bother to test, they break, and users flee to the browser that "just works." Mozilla is fighting this battle every day, and it just got harder.

Given that is also about decay, I will finish my almost-daily (26) series with this image. :)

Whenever I happen to end up in a hotel room, I always use the โ€œdo not disturbโ€œ sign for the whole stay. I can't stand someone cleaning up for me after only one or two days.

I also hope it helps the staff to end up with (slightly) more time for the other rooms.

Does anyone know a service that can notify me about new releases of watchlisted artists? Even something โ€œtechyโ€œ with a single RSS feed per artist would be fine. :D

I have not the slightest idea why but 'Weekend' (German rapper) provided a pretty good sound to listen to during the last few exhausting days.

Finally some music that I really discovered through Deezer suggestions.

Next step: off to Munich! ๐Ÿ›ซ

Still working. I will need a lot of sleep when I arrive at my next hotel tomorrow.
