In a year in which hardly anything happened apart from the evil ‘C’ word, what should I write about in a yearly review? I’ll try to fight my way through on the basis of my given structure.
We all have experienced unprecedented times this year. A global pandemic, no answers, lockdowns, incompetent politicians, and really gross weirdos who are putting more people at risk unnecessarily with their conspiracy narratives and actions. I’m glad my little family and I are healthy. Otherwise, this year is just lost. This year in review is getting […]
Corona. Actually, I am not someone who has to jump directly on any current events. But now that the Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2, meanwhile also known as “COVID-19-Pandemic“) starts to restrict me personally on many levels, I want to write a few lines about it.
I intended to take bigger steps this year, but then somehow life came in between. And work. Reflecting on it, I got more in my head than last time, but were those really big steps? I think not. But what does it really mean? I definitely take away from the year that I set myself […]
Today exactly 20 years ago, I put the first version of my private website online. For some people, this may be just a side note, but for me, it means a lot.
-These days I create websites for a living, after all.
So what happened in good old 2018? There was quite a lot but I still have the feeling that I didn’t really evolve. I’m still the same guy, I haven’t outgrown myself. For me as an ambitious person, this is of course not satisfying. So I’ll leave the past year behind and plan to take […]
My dear son is joining school next year after the summer vacation. Today there was an information evening for us parents at school so that we know what is in store for us and especially for our child. Of course, I already expected that I won’t like some things. I noticed with my brother Marc […]
It is said that time heals all wounds, even in Tobias’ favorite song “Nur die Besten sterben jung” (Only the best die young – What irony!) there is a corresponding line. The only problem is: It is a lie! Surely one can deal with losses over time if they are not as unnatural as in […]
After a long back and forth, the grand coalition of CDU/CSU and SPD has now managed to form a government again. Yesterday, the Chancellor and her cabinet were sworn in for the benefit of the German people, so help them God. It’s a shame to imagine the positive aspects of a minority government, in which […]
The new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force on May 25. While data protectionists can now celebrate themselves and think about what they can regulate even worsetighter, we simple people who just want to have a website running now have to seriously consider whether it’s even worth it.
In this small article I have to write about my observations of the behavior of people towards insects. Butterflies and especially moths.
It’s hard to believe that the first part of the Back to the Future trilogy is already 30 years old. And that today is the day Marty McFly travels from 1985 to the then distant future. Right now he arrives. Okay, actually in 9 hours, because Hill Valley is in California and there the Pacific […]
