regular reminder to clean your computers fans/heatsinks

Next Friday Vincentz (from and I will hold a Talk/Workshop "BGP and network design in practice" at the BCIX anniversary.
The talk will be held in German and is directed towards people who know Routing and BGP basics.

If you're from/near Berlin, you can still register:

People rarely spell my name wrong, but in the last two days different people called me: fina, fona and fino.
Any other combinations missing? :breadthink:

doctor who fans: "it's implausible for everyone on Earth to just forget about the various Dalek invasions or things like the entire planet being moved"

me: *the only person wearing a mask in a crowded supermarket*

Buying a tent ANY%: 92,43 seconds. New record!

I feel like all consumer tech gets more complex and expensive for no reason, while becoming even worse to repair. "let‘s make a lifestyle product of it and see how much we can charge".
We‘re doomed.

headphones, money 

After 4 years of extensive use (several hours a day) my ANC headphones are falling apart. The successor model looks ugly and costs more than twice as much, for next to no technological advance. So I‘ll get the same old model again.

I drew this comic a while back, and with the start of another pride month with another slew of terrifying things going on, here is my comic about Feeling Safe and lashing out against the phrase "you don't have to make your sexuality your whole personality"

CW for describing a memory of people being transphobic, but I think it's worth not blurring the entire comic for it
