The Conrad store in is closing on February 15th. Another victim of how unfair competition from web shops and rental cost pressure is destroying physical stores. I’m not sure how many people lose their jobs; For me a joy disappears as I loved going through the store looking for cool new things.

The latest Bullet Journal IOS companion app (version 2.0) improvements are impressive.

It now offers a great way of digitally backing up your paper notebooks.
Totally worth the $4.99 bucks! (I'm not getting anything out of this, I'm just a fan)

This “managed / unmanaged” calendar edit change restriction in #outlook is annoying

I think the only fix would be to not have the managed (corporate account) calendar set as the default calendar in on IOS. 
Not sure what Outlook does in other oses.

Can't believe I hadn't switched to "CSS Grid" yet, even-though it's been well supported for a while now. Still learning the intrinsic details of the spec, but I'm happy getting the basics right is not a huge deal. Planning to implement CSS Grid on my personal sites.

Always a lot of fun when the only solution for not hearing anything through the connected mini jack headphones on a MacBook is a full reboot.
