2/3 Keynote-Testläufe vor Publikum fertig, der letzte kommt dann nach fancy Abendessen heute Abend. Ist langsam echt gut, sagen zumindest die Zuhörenden.

Ich bin nachhaltig positiv beeindruckt von allem was InterRail derzeit so macht und abwickelt. Ist vermutlich einen Blogpost wert, sobald ich von der Zugreise zurück bin.

Der scope resolution operator (in vielen Sprachen "::") heißt auf Deutsch anscheinend "Gültigkeitsoperator". Das habe ich zuerst als "Gleichgültigkeitsoperator" gelesen und eigentlich ist das eine gute Idee.

I really should stream this stuff. Have been up all night with little to show for, and this would've been nicer if I could have talked at an empty chatroom. Well, ok, maybe not.

Bercow declaring the dates of his resignation. Remarkable speech. Very impressive.

I really need to write that blog post where I'm just all over the awesomeness that is Zeal. Offline docs that are full-text searchable and properly cross-referenced are just the best. All in one place. So fast, so neat.

Vixie's talk spells out the reasons behind my really bad gut reaction to DNS over HTTPS.
