Ordered from https://glasbote.com/ today for the first time - Glasbote is a Düsseldorfer start-up which delivers groceries sustainably using cargo bikes and glass return jars and bags.

Twenty years I've been using an electric toothbrush and never before had I even considered the energy it uses every day to brush my own damn teeth twice.

The biggest challenge with eating grasshoppers for protein instead of having a piece of meat is that the, otherwise interestingly tasting buggers, have a face. Eating something like that, which has a face, even shrimp, feels weird. We got so used to processed food that we totally not relate the animal with the food directly any longer. It's going to take some time for me to adjust.

Got a bit of a set-back using Ubuntu because Brasero messed up an expensive BluRay disc for no clear reason - All works well when using my previous app on Windows. Makes me want to reconsider going full time on Linux unfortunately.

Had my life-time first three snack "natural" grasshoppers from Jimini's - if you like eating nuts you'll like these too! If you'd like to try them too: https://www.jiminis.com/shop/lang/en/15-insect-snacks

How many people have suffered in Germany because personal data could not be shared between organizations and institutions in the last ten years?

Johan Bové

One of the measures people can do to limit their co2 output is to consume less meat - less beef especially - but everywhere you read about this it's about consuming less, but I have not seen many write about at which point this will start having an impact as long as farmers keep growing cows for their meat?

Watching "The Sandman" on Netflix. Did not know what to expect because I did not know the comics. But oh man, how cool and mind blowing this show is! Got to chapter five "24/7". Highly recommending it. Intelligent, emotional human fantasy to its best.

Haven't been on any "social media" really lately and it feels enlightening. I am back at actively looking for information on a certain topic instead of getting it all stuffed in my face from a timeline is so much better for me. I have no fear of missing out because I use an RSS reader and follow only a handful of people through their blogs / sites. And I am no longer cross-posting on any other platform just so I don't add to the noise myself. If people want to catch up with me - I'm here on my own little corner of the Web.

Volume 3 of "Love, Death + robots" is amazing! Every single episode is out-of-this-world!

Predicting that alternative ways of generating electricity, for example by using a fixed exercise bike connected to a battery, will get more popular in Europe and Germany this winter.

You know what would be cool - if big tech brands would start adding solar panels to their product ranges. There is so much "crap" out there - I would easily put an "Siemens" or "LG" solar panel high on the list.

Johan Bové

With these electricity prices - all web hosting will get more expensive. So seriously considering if all of this will then be still worth the trouble.

Johan Bové

Our electricity provider will pull up the price by 2.9 times ! This is nuts.

Is the fossil fuel industry trying to cash in big time before the end of the World-as-know-it so their shareholders can all go watch the rest of the World suffer from the safety of their yachts and villas?

Need more space on your Android phone? Use an SD card! At least, that's the promise, reality is that using an SD card as an expansion is still (after all these years) still a terrible process which is super unstable. Tried three times copying an app's storage to the "SD Card" on Android 11 and every time the phone ends up crashing.

We're back at work! Had a really good time enjoying an actual vacation at Cavallino Tre Porte in Italy. Our family beach holiday in a fantastic camp site was the best time of this year for now! Hoping everyone else gets a change to enjoy this too somehow where ever they might be.

Johan Bové

Enjoying some time off. See you later.
