The sticker that I ordered for the bathroom in the northern germany refuge. It says “No Diving” 🙂
So we had a nice little hailstorm here in Munich yesterday (June 05, 2019). Pretty impressive and amply destructive too. Here’s a small gallery.
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’m here in the northern germany refuge at the Moment, and the town names around here in the north make me giggle more than often. For example that firetruck on the image is from the “voluntary fire brigade” of the town of – literally(!) – “Lentil Stew” 🙂
So today they removed the part of the wall that’s going to be the new kitchen counter. There’s a super cool wood trading company only a short distance away, where I plan to purchase a solid slab of wood for the countertop.
So the tree guys are doing their business around the new house. Felling the dead oaks professionally and thinning out everything, so the other trees can grow better and strong again. I could never have done this on my own and without their heavy equipment and special knowledge. These guys are cool, they work hard and they know what they’re doing.
For everyone like me who is too lazy or too busy to hit the gym regularly, here’s an interesting article on how to exercise at home.It’s a bodyweight-workout, no fuss and effective and it doesn’t require any equipment (thus “The Prisoner Workout”). I’m doing this at the moment and I hope i will keep it up.
I generally recommend that site: The Art of Manliness

I’m (somewhat) social too!
