When Friends started in 1994, the characters were about 26, so then they were about 14 years older then me. Now I'm about 14 years older than them. Movies and TV works funny that way.

Bluetooth is really one of those technologies that are wonderful when they work, but can be really annoying if it glitches. For instance when I leave my Android phone on the table between the Mac and the Trackpad with Bluetooth then the signal of my keyboard and track-pad is interfered with and the mouse cursor moves erratically.

This psychic attack on New York city in back in 1985 really left a big impression on me. What a crazy idea! Learned from it through the excellent 2019 HBO show. I need to pick up a book or comic some time too.

One of the challenges of living far away from where you grew up, like myself, as a Belgian in Germany, is that most people around me don't really know legendary Belgian bands like Nacht und Nebel, Soulsister, Technotronic, Vaya Con Dios, Triggerfinger and more.

Yeah, LinkedIn sent me an email to tell me I have a message from someone. And that's exactly why I will never give them my money.

Thanks to OpenKeyChain, FairEmail, Thunderbird, and Keybase.io, I'm only sending PGP signed Emails out. It feels like I just upped a level in terms of online representation.
