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.
On the train to München. Compared to flying, this is so far have been a much more relaxed experience. Just get on board, find your seat and relax. Funny how we're currently going 258 km/h. The train is a bit wobbly though. So still requires trust in the engineering and technical skill of the people maintaining tracks and trains. It's a long ride, but we're getting there.
Really enjoyed #willow! Totally deserves its three volumes. Loved also it music score. Super cool. Money For Nothing - best intro ever.
It's 9:00 in the morning. How many times did you authenticate yourself with services and apps? I already lost count.
Cats and dogs probably find us humans crazy for defecating in a perfectly fine water source.
Wondering how long it will take for #ChatGPT to be added to Amazon's Alexa devices. This would make both instantly more useful because of the ubiqutiousness of Amazon's devices and the power of OpenAI.
I am 42 years old and I'm not too proud to admit my eyes teared up during Elsa's epic battle with the sea/water horse and her finding out the purpose of her calling in Frozen 2.
#ChatGPT good that we have some time ahead of the USA to use it, as right around this time of day, afternoon in German, the system seems to be getting overloaded.
Not kidding; #ChatGPT is replacing my Internet searching using questions really fast. It is incredible how fast answers come back. It's like having a savvy colleague who you can reach out to at any given time and responds in a few seconds. I now have https://
Please don't do your own fireworks for New Year's Eve. Thanks.
Watched "Avatar - the way of water" and it totally did not disappoint. What a marvel of today's movie technology! It's a breathtakingly gorgeous thrill-ride with beautiful creatures. Unfortunately the humans had to spoil it all... again. Worth the cinema visit for me.
