Deleted my Signal account as part of simplifying my digital presence. Only one single person was contacting me over it last year and we both agreed to stick with other means to reach out to each other.

Feeling joyful and fortunate to be able to have another wonderful Christmas day with my family! Wishing everyone similar fuzzy feelings and a happy new year!

Went to see the first Ice Hockey game with my five year old and family tonight ever. Our team lost, but the experience will last for sure.

Having problems - again - getting to see my files on . The UI is not entirely loading and I cannot access my files. It's typical for "enterprise-level" applications however that it seems that all tracking and analytical tools and other metric related features seems to work fine, while the actual user-experience is severely lacking. This is a paying service. I send Microsoft money to use their services. No excuses.

Wishing everyone in the northern hemisphere a happy winter soltice! Enioy this shortest day of the year with your loved ones if you can.

Thinking of writing a post on the sad technical state of corporate consumer facing websites, for example Lenovo's and Epsons's. Try finding information on anything but their latest models sends you on a real goose chase. Also it is impossible to unsubscribe from Epson's newsletter due to how they preferred to have multiple marketing tracking tools over making a simple form work. Those cookie preference modals are not helping either.

Enjoying the conversation at the DWEB meetup tonight!

Does anyone actually enjoy this sharp edge cutting into their wrists from the bottom of the latest Macbook laptops?

So our cats both love dropping a mouse-toy in our shoes to then make it a challenging game to get it out again.

So the app can be useful, but after a month of frantically keeping track of all the groceries and food we buy and consume I've had a bit enough... I felt myself carrying my phone around much more than usual. And after a couple of days of missing out on tracking and registering, it kinda lost its point. Nevertheless, it's a great application; just not something I am able to keeping spending my time on.

First game experience today was pretty cool. Did the "Sanctum" game with a bunch of colleagues and afterwards some arcade games. Having the headset on for longer than 50 minutes started bothering me a bit, but the games kept me from being too distracted by it.

Interacting with a board feels like this could be the future of the Web beyond horizontal and vertical scrolling 2D Web pages. Also tells me I need to brush up my skills. https://developers.miro.com/docs

Wondering if someone made a framework comparison between , noting down the level of fun devs have with it and how long it takes to get to a productive level. Guessing won't be high in the top. On the other hand, looking at enterprise-readiness, and maintainability, it will score probably much better than most younger competitors.

Pretty cool how I just walked into the Dr's office today and got my without appointment. Handed over my healthcare insurance card and my pass and waiting for about two minutes and got it done.

Five year old today: why don't we all take baths with our clothes still on to save some water and energy?

Watching Orion's / Artemis's return to Earth splashdown. Exciting stuff.

We're doing it again! We're preparing a dinner for sixteen people staying at the RonaldMcDonald house in Köln for tomorrow evening.

Noticed today that and finally did it: they've integrated directly into Github with https://github.dev. Really slick.

Logged off from SocialMedia again for a while. Email me when you want to talk.

It is 20° C in the house, and I am wearing warmer clothes, still I can't get comfy.
