I was excited for a shipping update on our new M1 MacBook Air, but there were just payment processing troubles 😩

To contradict current news, there just was the first very light snowfall of the year. Delightful!

There are a lot of sports that are less enjoyable without crowds cheering but Darts might be the one that is hurt the most.

Let’s hope the atmosphere can return next year.

What a crazy year!

We wish anyone Merry Christmas 🎄 🥂
Stay safe and healthy.

Finished my last day of work for the day. Now looking forward to relax during lockdown 2.0.

It’s the hope that kills you.

Oh no, I broke my micro.blog!

Sometimes, even 2-trillion company does something right. And, whatever their motives, it’s okay to acknowledge that.
New App Store commissions are great for those who benefit from it, but it won’t - and shouldn’t - be enough to face off the antitrust cases.

I enjoy going by train. In fact we don’t even own a car anymore. But thinking about all the creative ways people wear their masks alone makes me stay at home as much as possible.

In memory of better times.

I am really enjoying Microblogvember so far.

Posting each day is a nice challenge.

The good thing about rainy Sundays is that you don’t feel bad for spending the day on the couch.

Wandering down along closed restaurants on bars on a Saturday night still feels spooky. Emptiness where there should be joy and life.

Let’s at least hope that the partial lockdown helps!

Pizza time!

Backups are in place, I guess it’s Big Sur time!

I’ve been wearing my Apple Watch to sleep for a couple of weeks now but honestly I don’t know why. The alarm is nice and subtle, but that’s the opposite of what I usually need in the morning. And the sleep data feels kinda… pointless.

I’d say I just opened my first public GitHub issue. That was a long time coming.

The M1 Macs look like nice improvements. I am curious for some real-life experiences in the coming weeks.

Following the great news about Covid vaccines the first suggestions about who should receive it first were published: Doctors, nurses and the elderly.

Makes sense, but let’s see what will happen when the vaccine actually becomes available.

Time to dig into The Mandalorian Season 2 and our all favorite force baby.

Politicians use every horrible attacks to push through with their surveillance fetishes, like the most recent attempt to end end-to-end encryption in Europe. The attacker was of course well known to the police. But hey, never pass on such an opportunity.

There are no news like an EU encryption ban to get your blood boiling on a Monday morning.
