I'm finally getting into the habit of carrying a water-bottle with me all the time again. All it took was me finding a replacement cap for my good old bottle 😍

Sorry, Shop! Haven’t been here in quite a while. How’s everyone doing? Any new awesome sci-fi to read or watch? 😂

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 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 again 😄

Don't get me wrong, though. “Secrets and Lies” is quite interesting and despite its age very relevant. It's just realllly long.

@kevinja Hehe, I had exactly the same issue until I spent an hour to just remove everything after a certain date. Sadly, there is no nice UI for that but listening to a good podcast or audiobook while hitting the delete-button over and over and over again definitely worked 🤣

@kevinja I use Pocket for step 2. This way I can read the article also days later (or sometimes never 😢)

Watching right now … so far I’ve expected it to be far worse 😁

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 , do yourself a favor and listen to this 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 assignment "An Unkindness of Ghosts" by Rivers Solomon: zerokspot.com/weblog/2018/03/0 😁

@bridgebury Same here. At least there is hope that the day will improve 😄

Only one more episode and I'm finally through with season two of . Quite a few great little twists in this season and entertaining as always! At last I'm finally making some progress on my to-watch list. Next will probably be , which I accidentally bought in .

Chloe: I'm going to tie a bell around your neck at some point.
Lucifer: Oh, that sounds like a fun bit of foreplay.

Lucifer is just such an entertaining show 😄

@jessmahler Hehe, me too :) that being said, I just try to keep a single spreadsheet updated as best as possible, so the once-a-year tax-report is usually only a one-hour project :)

ledger-cli is a little commandline tool that helps you do double-entry accounting journaling based on plain text files. It's not something I absolutely need right now but once I have it updated again I can easily run some stats on my expenses etc.


Sorry, probably extremely geeky 😂

@jessmahler Hi :)

I'm sitting on my couch, just did my finances (playing with ledger-cli for the first time in a year again) and am now watching the second season of Lucifer to get my head off some things.
