Made good headway yesterday in in “Secrets and Lies”. Perhaps I will really finish it this week and can finally start reading something else again 😂
Currently blocked by Bruce Schneier's “Secrets and Lies” from #reading anything else. At least I'm way past the half-time-flag, so I should be able to complete it this week and finally be able to read some #scifi again 😄
Don't get me wrong, though. “Secrets and Lies” is quite interesting and despite its age very relevant. It's just realllly long.

My landlord just tried to evict me, with a 72 hour notice, using his partner (my friend from the ISO) as the witness.
I refused to take the paperwork and backed away, he got loud and and lunged at me, I yelled "no stop" and tried to get back, knocked stuff off a shelf of his as I moved away fast.
I called my lawyer once I was safe.
Please boost, I need a place to stay.
I still have to write a quick review about the excellent “We are legion (We are Bob)” 😢…🤔…🙃 I guess I just did 😅
If you are into #startrek, do yourself a favor and listen to this #podcast by Scott Hanselman where he Interviews Dann Curry about his work on visual effects for the various shows over the course of 18 years 😍
"Would you like to connect your account to your Facebook account?"
This question has gone from annoying to actively damaging for any app's brand that asks. IMHO.
Already done with this month's #swordandlaser assignment "An Unkindness of Ghosts" by Rivers Solomon: https://zerokspot.com/weblog/2018/03/03/an-unkindness-of-ghosts/ 😁

Lucifer: Oh, that sounds like a fun bit of foreplay.
Lucifer is just such an entertaining show 😄
There is now a HumbleBundle including tons of #AttackOnTitan mangas 😃 Now I just have to find the time to also actually read them 😧 https://www.humblebundle.com/books/attack-on-titan-books
Good thing that the Reader Q&A on Goodreads answers the very first question I've had about this month's book for the #sffbookclub: Yes, it sounds like this can be read without knowing the other entries in the series :D
I guess I will probably need a sick-day tomorrow 🤧
A quick review of "The Girl with all the Gifts" by M. R. Carey: https://zerokspot.com/weblog/2018/01/21/the-girl-with-all-the-gifts/
Now I just hope that most the audio books I'm going to listen to during the next 12 months will be even half as awesome as this one!
I’m surprised how much reading I get done lately simply by staying off Twitter, Instagram etc.
