Is it a trend you noticed too that businesses simply ignore phone calls on their own listed phone numbers during regular business hours? Most painful are the ones with messages on their websites and auto-reply mails to call them ON THE PHONE in case of urgency. Tried for days reaching out to three different businesses with nobody picking up the phone. I even checked if my phone could have been listed on one of those spam-reporting lists, but it doesn't seem to be. I also tried with different phones and phone numbers.

One of the reasons why I keep my IRC connection going is the amazing IRC channels. Thanks to some awesome bot programming (Loqi) you can follow up pretty neatly what is happening in a unobtrusive, ad-free manner.

Renewed by yearly IRCCloud.com subscription again (third year) - holding on to the IRC protocol like it's 2010.

My son is asking questions like "What is war Daddy?" - I feel ashamed as a human being to have to explain him it somehow.

My site, my rules ... as long as it is legally compliant in whatever country you happen to live in. Somehow the utopian promise of a free Hyperspace where people could exist in peace and harmony, not bound to physical and any other boundaries, seems to be more and more an unachievable dream, because of ... people.

Cool, my static private website is on https://lowwwcarbon.com/ with a page weight of 58.56 KB and carbon per page view of 0.043g. Not the lowest, yet still respectable.

I can only imagine the horror parents go through after they get news that something really bad happened to their children while at school and they will never come home again; this horrendous thought flashed through my head after realizing how I miss him already by just looking at the way he left his toys around this morning.

Went to see Top gun - Maverick at the movies. It is a cool and heart-felt pop-corn movie and our first time back at the movies in two years. You have to like Tom Cruise of course. If you liked the original Top Gun, you're going to love it. Just the right mix of nostalgia and a coming of age story line.

Highly recommend the NEMO museum in Amsterdam - our 4-year old and the whole family loved it!

We want to take a city trip with our son and now he got really excited to go the "Hamsterdam".

Pretty cool how our Fairphone 3s (from 2019) got the upgrade to Android 11 over the weekend.

having this annoying Android app issue where authentication does not persist in an app if the app's storage is NOT on the "Internal Shared Storage", but on the extra SD card? Security over convenience I suppose.

Covid is NOT over in Germany. Our kita / kindergarten is staying closed tomorrow because of an outbreak. Wear masks when going to public places, please!!

Was wondering how much you rely on mobile data plans and how many GB you can use in a month?
I have 6GB per month and manage to use it all. Mostly because of video streaming.

Tried installing Mastodon on the Yunohost server on a Raspberry Pi 3. Turns out it does not have enough RAM. Installation aborted itself, left a nice clear log message and then uninstalled everything nicely. That is what is really awesome about Yunohost.

First day of the year where I need to keep our outside windows and doors shut to keep the heat out and the house cool.

It's the time of the year again where the fingerprint reader on my phone is useless because of my sweaty hands.

The text editor in Nextcloud is pretty cool. Works well with Markdown notation. Seamlessly editing files in the browser and on the OS with great syncing. Haven't had a "conflict" once after a couple weeks of working with it.
Yunohost + Nextcloud + Raspberry Pi 3 B = 👍

Many German doctors use e-mail to inform other doctors that they have sent them a fax.

Over the course of a day, the talented band Kalush Orchestra has literally come from one of the happiest places and moments in the World, to one of the most dangerous to be in today, the front-lines in Ukraine, where they defend their home country from a brutal invader.
