Ready for the netcasts!

Yay. But I'm researching now the topics. I have to hurry up. Green tea power, and Akregator helps a lot :) 
Today it will be about the CES and a lot of news around the web and Android.

Household - The final frontier

Household: the final frontier. These are the voyages of Ryo. His mission: to explore strange new stains, to seek out new dirt and new cloudy glasses, to boldly clean where no man has cleaned before.
I'll have a lot of work to do today. And I know it will be the same next week. Zen exercises...

New equipment arrived

Finally a new TV set. Went for a Samsung 6470 55 inch screen.
And to get most use out of it, I also got a PS4.

Now playing GTA V for the PS4. Great. Nobody seems to recognize the many cats in the next gen version of the game that stray around Los Santos. Nice :-)

Today's quick breakfast

Vegan orange juice, oatmeal with soy milk and stevia, and small dark bread with vegan cheese.

After that an organic green tea for the headstart :-)

When I look at that myself, I'm wondering how this has become normal. Organic green tea e.g. Without even thinking about it, organic food became a part of my normal intake.
Vegan is in purpose. Some time ago I served people this stuff, didn't think about it, and they ate it without knowing it was vegan stuff. They didn't complain. Good. :-)

Got my new Pebble today

It was replaced. My old Pebble had these massive display problems. I hope this one works correctly. I really like the Pebble. Testing intensively now.

Notegraphy needs to support Google+ directly

And then it can't even share it directly on Google+. I had to save it as a picture and then share it from the gallery. This is crazy, sorry.

Please +Notegraphy​ support the second largest social network directly. Thanks. 

Me and the shaver

Can this little thing stand against my brutal facial hair? I'll have to wait until tomorrow to give it an extra hard job to do.
Bought it yesterday. It's a Philips PT 721, and it's so quiet, I'm skeptical that this will shave properly.
It would be nice though. My old shaver is so loud, I have to protect my ears. No joke.

And this post is also an experiment. I'm trying to write it other way around. So while previously these posts was written in my blog and shared with Google+, this is written in Google+ and then (manually) archived in my microblog. From there it will be linked by Twitter.
Let's see if this works without too much additional work.  
EDIT: The shave is great. Wow. So quiet ans still it's better than the old one that sounds like a chainsaw.

Watching live streams from Paris' terror attack

Looking at live stream and RT Rutply live coverage.
Horrible. People want to see blood.
I'm not letting fear win. Don't panic. 

This again makes obvious that every traditional religion is in fact a threat to freedom and peace.

Free speech will prevail.

If someone wanted to shut up the world, it was a big failure.

"The idea that God is an oversized white male with a flowing beard, who sits in the sky and tallies the fall of every sparrow is ludicrous. But if by 'God', one means the set of physical laws that govern the universe, then clearly there is such a God. This God is emotionally unsatisfying… it does not make much sense to pray to the law of gravity."

Quinine + Caffeine

Quinine + caffeine = Bitter Lemon + Cola = Whaaaat?

Taste is quite okay. Like it.
And now for a hot coffee... Man did I level up my caffeine consumption. 
The right thing if you play BF4 or games with fast reactions required. But don't overdo it. Shivering while aiming is not good ;)

Google+ or my Microblog?

The new year raises one question again.
My Microblog is where I post my stuff. Google+ is where the discussion is. And there is Twitter too for something I don't even know :)
Now should I keep posting stuff like this? Or should I just use Google+ for short updates.
From mobile this would be much easier. But on my blog, I have more control over the content and it's more personal, I think.
I'm reading sometimes, that posts on Google+ or Twitter will only be honored if they are exclusively to the platform. Which is very strange for me. I don't understand why some people think like that. I'm always there on Google+ to comment and actively engaging the community. And even the comments here on the blog are posted within Google+.

I really don't know what to do.
Fior now I'm posting my status updates here, and my bigger articles on my other blogs and share them to Google+. And everyone can engage on Google+. I'm everywhere, you know :)

Here are the photos of the new "carpet garden"

I almost forgot to post the photos :)
Here they are now. The old "glass garden" in my japanese style living room is removed, and replaced with a more cleaning friendly "carpet garden".
