So this is what was going on in the northern germany garden over the last few days: My SO (with a little external help) did the lion’s share and I only contributed the detail work, but: Slowly but surely things finally take shape:
Spaghetti Cacio e Pepe is a classic italian dish and I wanted to see if I’m able to produce a decent version of it. I’m a garlic junkie, so I added garlic, which is not at all original. The trick of mixing the cheese with the noodles and creating a nice even coat is not so easy, but it works and the result ist delicious.
Ingredients for 2:
500 g spinach, fresh
2 cloves garlic
6-8 king oyster mushrooms (depending on size)
125 g polenta
salt & pepper to taste
It’s Saturday in the morning and I indeed do have time to screen my server logs a little. What catches my eye: My page on Contact & Privacy is my second most visited page, by far most requests coming from germany (this is where I live and manage this site from) and obviously visiting only this site. So, what does that mean?
It’s ridiculous. The General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”, thanks at this point to this green party bloke in particular – you can read my opinion on this on my mentioned above Contact & Privacy page) has to be implemented on every website in the EU since half a year ago or so. Nobody, I repeat: Nobody reads the “Terms and conditions” of any website, software or sales contract on the internet and I expect normal, average users aren’t much interested in reading EU-Law statements of a small, personal website like mine either. I cannot imagine that the indeed very manageable (and mostly foreign) amount of visitors on my site would be happy and interested to look that up.
This means one thing: Our friendly politicians don’t get tired of stating that dissuasions concerning other than the “big players” on the internet are not desired, but relevant lawyer’s offices are already scanning – or should I say “roboting” (I, technically, don’t have another clue) ? – their battleground. See where this is going to?
I stumbled upon an absolutely great article on how computer networks work last night. That guy really did a great job explaining networking basics in simple and understandable words! If you’re interested in the matter, read it here on imgur.
See the video below for instructions. It’s PostapocalypticGarage’s YouTube Channel. He’s a german, but he presents his videos in english.
This is the town of Feldberg, Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, with its iconic steeple. I love this place very much for its nature, quietness and beauty. My wife was there yesterday for family reasons and I’m very much longing to get there again as well.
