A Pale Blue Dot from the orbit of Saturn

This is really saying something. Reminds me on Carl Sagan's Pale Blue Dot immediately.

At a nice zoo

They have big areals for the animals. I hope they are doing good here.
Always parted at any kind of zoo.

Manjaro GNU+Linux 3rd full system update okay

Yay! It works. Just upgraded my installation for the 3rd time without problems.
Well, 1 little issue with Akonadi (as if there always weren't issues with akonadi)

After rm ~/.local/share/akonadi/mysql.conf everything worked fine.
Like that!

A lot of work today before the netcasts

Like every Monday, I'll guess.

Researching and giving the final touch, and then for the recording.


It will be exciting today. Surveillance and how to get around. Yay!

Watching Detective Conan now

Yesterday I watched 16 Episodes, today it will be eventually the same amount.

I like Detective Conan (I don't like the Case Closed translation. Boooh).

My quote of the day

"A strange game. The only winning move is not to play. How about a nice game of chess?"

Real name policy gone on Google+. FTW!

Here we go. After years, Google+ finally lifted the real name policy, now allowing pseudonyms.
Maybe that has to do with some countries in Europe, having a law that guarantees anonymity in social networks. Or maybe it has nothing to do with it.

In the end, it's a big victory for free speech. Not only in restrictive countries this can be essential, but it also helps people everywhere to say their REAL OPINION without being afraid that they might lose their jobs, or exposing their privacy to their bosses when they search for their employees name.
A victory for privacy and security, too

But it is very late to do that.

Email-Provider drives me crazy

Third time in a year now, my paid mail-provider has screwed up the server.
Again, for hours, I can't neither receive nor send a mail. Man... this is horrible. I hope they get their things together, soon.
I know security has its price. But outages should not be the currency to pay for. I already pay $$ for it!

Explore Science 2014

Thunderstorm, rain and science. How fitting.

One of the better science fairs. Very nice arrangements and scientific experiments. Topic this year is animals and evolution.
Get your 3D red/green glasses out :)

Jurassic Systems? You have to see this.

Well, there are some scenes in films you'll never forget, like... no more words.
You can't only see the scene again, no you can PLAY it! Yeah, feel the urge to save Dr. Ellie Sattler from the horrible creatures of Jurassic Park. Who cares about the others anyway.

But prepared, every mistake can be the last...
