Der Congress-Presale ist ne ganz schön einzigartige Sache. Ich bin Teil des Vorverkaufs-Teams, und habe hier aufgeschrieben, welche Probleme wir zu lösen versuchen, und in welche Lösungen wir dabei laufen. Das liegt mir ganz schön am Herzen, verständlich zu machen, warum das so ist, wie es ist. events.ccc.de/2019/11/18/behin #36C3

There is a fine line between a numerator and a denominator.

Only a fraction of people will find this funny.

Die Organisation erdölexportierender Länder – kurz OPEC – will ihre Erdölproduktion nicht reduzieren, sondern bis 2040 sogar ausweiten! Das geht sich einfach nicht aus. Um die Klimaziele zu erreichen, müssten die OPEC-Mitgliedstaaten die Produktion von Erdöl und Erdgas um die Hälfte reduzieren.
Deshalb habe ich gerade diesen Appell an den OPEC-Generalsekretär und die Mitgliedstaaten unterzeichnet:

The tower stood on a lonely mountaintop, far from town and city. One morning, a knight seeking adventure knocked on its door.
"Is this the lair of an evil sorcerer, or prison of a trapped princess?" he demanded.
Eventually, a tired voice called out.
"This is an observatory."

Look, I made a thing! After I saw the awesome blog post on city street orientations, I generated some charts for European and German cities (and refactored Geoff's IPython notebook into a script on the way). If you want to see a map of your favourite city in this style, tell me about it and I'll see what I can do.

12 years of testing smartphones and only now I find the right way to move app icons from one screen to the other.

You hold the icon with one finger and swipe through screens with another.

I used to do it by bringing the icon to the edge of the screen which is slower/annoying.

Puns for fun:

The problem with math puns is that, calculus jokes are all derivative, trigonometry jokes are too graphic, algebra jokes are usually formulaic, arithmetic jokes are pretty basic. But I guess the occasional statistics joke is an outlier.

The mechanic swiveled its middle eyes over the ship. "What is that thing at the front for?"
"It is just there to be pretty," the human said.
"Why, if no purpose?"
The human shrugged. "On Earth, we call it an 'ornament'."
"Earth? That's that planet with the huge, beautiful moon?"

"Wait," the thief said, "before you eat me-"
"What?" said the dragon.
"- let me see your treasure."
"My hoard? I slept on it when you came in."
"But where is your gold?"
The dragon nodded at the hoard of yarn. "It paid for that."
"But why?"
"I knit. Here, take this jumper."

"I was a God once."
The sentiment entered my mind. Not spoken. Nor carried by words in any language I knew.
Who were you? I said in my mind.
"I can't remember. I am the ghost of the God I was."
I could discern a vague shape. Not see, but sense. It was...
"Long ago."
A dinosaur?

My problem with studying for certifications is that I will get to a certain subject and inevitably want to know everything about it at opposed to the basics covered in the book. This sends me down rabbit holes and makes studying take a lot longer. Like, oh a brief summary of IPv6? Let me now go online and research everything about it, and NDP, and ICMPv6, and DHCPv6, and what is this Stateless Address Auto-configuration I keep hearing so much about and where does ff01::2 go? Sigh.
