Just tried to download my own photo from my own FB timeline with my iPhone. Hey kid, good try … If I needed any reason not to care about FB as a one&only place, that would be one.
(And this is my “Please give me a Helloween pin, @Manton” post)
After buying a red car one sees so many red cars. After buying my MB Pro I start hearing only bad news about Apple products …
Seeing micro.blog posts in Swedish or Dutch, I wonder how important a German writing base would be? Of course, writing in English spreads my word :) But there are topics or even jokes that are German-centric or just work in German. Hmm …
I will frame and hang this quote of Marc Aurel’s “Meditations” (Book V, see below) next to my desk. Just in time, before the sleepy winter-time starts.

A bit shocked when seeing the energy usage of Firefox and Safari on my MB Pro 2017 (High Sierra). Both browsers running one after the other for about 30 min each, playing some YT, checking FB. FF: 73.38%, S: 6.56%. Sad for I am am a FF fan.

I think for the upcoming 10 days “De profundis” will be my motto. Perfect for the week with a nationwide celebrated Reformation Day.
“Black Books” - so many scenes to love, this is one of my favourites:
Bernard Black: The shop is closed, everybody get out! Time to go home …
Old lady: It’ a quarter to three!
BB: Yes, but it’s my shop …
