Enjoyed a healthy bowls and a fresh beer.
Web developer and Studio Lead at Deloitte Digital in Düsseldorf, Germany.
Had a weird dream in which somebody won a 160 million Euro and I, winning 10€, yes only 10, had to both stand on a stage to be officially handed over the price. The money came in a box and a single, brand new banknote.
I am using Earthstar Project's user_scripts in my Timekeeper tool. Programmed using Typescript and using the Deno runtime. It is super nice how I have multiple copies of the data generated by the app. The data is stored within the Earthstar "share" first of course. Then I sync the data with a local dir, which also allows me to edit the data from any editor I have. Then I can easily sync that same data with a remote Earthstar replica, For backup I regularily make a quick zip file backup on an USB stick. All from the command line and without hassle. Oh and I forgot I also keep a replica on another PC, where I can also edit the data which then can sync back.
Deleted my Dropdox account multiple years ago - or so I thought... Last Friday a friend shared some excellent photos from a fun event we were at through his Dropbox account. He posted the link on our WhatsApp chat. I clicked it using my Android phone and enjoyed seeing the pictures. This morning I receive a message on the e-mail address I used to have with Dropdox about their updated terms and services. How did Dropbox found out I accessed their services? Was it Google, through Android, was it Meta through WhatsApp? Or what dark marketing magic was applied to detect I "came back" to Dropbox? You can check out, but you can never leave.
Enjoying to book The School Of Life by Alain De Botton. Early in, but already feeling good about having picked it up at the bookstore.

Had a really great international Burns night or Burns supper today with a very nice group of people from allover, to also have happened to have made Düsseldorf their home.
Something to keep an eye on!
