Look, I made a thing! After I saw the awesome blog post on city street orientations, I generated some charts for European and German cities (and refactored Geoff's IPython notebook into a script on the way). If you want to see a map of your favourite city in this style, tell me about it and I'll see what I can do.

TIL – Using conditional entries in .gitconfig to automatically manage #git identities based on the working directory. Nice!

Sooo, mal ne Anfrage an die ARD um ihr Framing-Manual. This better be good.

In last week's blog post we said we were working on enabling a donor to send money to multiple creators at once instead of having to make multiple payments. Today we're happy to announce that this is now done for donations to European creators processed through Stripe.

Eventually we should be able to the same thing for donations to non-European creators as well, but we don't know yet when that will become possible.

To renew your donations, go to

Silk woven portrait of Joseph-Marie Jacquard, woven by Michel-Marie Carquillat on a Jacquard loom - France, 1839.

The program for this weave required Carquillat to encode ~24,000 Jacquard punch cards.

The image is fine detailed enough to capture detail like the translucency of the curtains over the window.

This achievement was one of the main things that later convinced Babbage to use punch cards for his Analytical Engine, cascading into actual use in computing later on.

Ich habe hier so schöne Hobby Projekte liegen. Aber wie es scheint, wird die Arbeit mich die nächsten Wochen sehr stark in Beschlag nehmen.

So sehr, dass ich mir jetzt erstmal so Projektmanagement für Teams anschauen muss.

Ich mag Trello ja sehr gerne. Ich weiss, dass es Kanboard etc. gibt. Aber haben die auch so nette iOS / Android Apps?

Uff, von neun bis neunzehn Uhr ist auch nicht ideale Arbeitszeit.

After freezing rain in Michigan, apples that hadn’t been picked got coated in ice. Many fell off the tree. Some had their insides turn to mush as apples have lower freezing points. The mush and skin fell, leaving these “ghost apples.”

Das OpenRegister-Schema ist *fast* intuitiv! Ein Officer hat eine company_id. Eine company hat eine ID (die damit nichts zu tun hat) und eine company_number (die schon).

Nach offenen Gesetzen jetzt offene Register: Handelsregisterdaten in frei durchsuchbar, herunterladbar, verwendbar, integrierbar!

Einfach mal mit SQL gegen Einträge suchen können ist schon sehr luxuriös:

Ohh, lavarel has pretty error/debug pages in development mode. It would be nice to see something like this in Django, too! (Note the google/duckduckgo/stack overflow links?)

And the latest entry on the page is from 2014.

Ich hätte gerade eine kleine Rückfahrkamera für meinen Rollstuhl, deren Bild ich auf meinem Smartphone anzeigen lassen kann. Die Verbindung sollte möglichst kabellos sein. WiFi ist aber eher schlecht, denn dann wird bei der Übertragung die Internetverbindung unterbrochen. Ich dachte an Bluetooth, finde aber nichts richtiges. Könnt ihr mir dazu einen Tipp geben? Gerne auch #RT
