Okay, time for my #introduction. :)
Hi, I'm Sven! 👋
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. :)
Kicking off my easter weekend by
· reading a new book while drinking some fresh coldbrew coffee
· going for a long walk in the sun
· video calling my sister on the other side of the world (I can definitely recommend jitsi!)
· installing a new hard drive and new OS
· taking some time to cuddle with my wife
· eating in the sun on the balcony
I guess it could be worse. :)
So I installed #Linux Mint and my first big challenge was (well ... is) to make my Logitech keyboard fully work. After one hour of searching and trying out stuff, I managed to kill off my keyboard entirely. Apparently, this makes restoring a backup quite difficult, as I need to enter my password. 😅
Somewhat disappointing that it's still pretty painful to make certain things work.

I'm glad to see that muscle progress is not lost as fast as I feared. :)
I spent about six weeks to systematically strengthen back and hips and recently had to (mostly) pause for three weeks.
Coming back to the #gym today, I could pretty much continue where I had left off, even though I managed to increase the lifted weights by 30-60% during the training period.
Seems to be worth the time, after all. #fitness
