On the airport train to Munich. One week of work ahead (with a two-day trip to Sweden in the middle).
Yesterday I was watching “The Petrified Forest” (old movie with Leslie Howard, Bette Davis and Humphrey Bogart). I loved it. 📽
Nothing like a bit of physical labour to clear the mind.
Charging my batteries
I’ve tried many systems for expense tracking, but finally found one that works for me. (Hint: It involves plain text, and has en emacs-mode)
Two new favourite things: A bolt action pen, and a leather-bound notebook.

Wet, Wet, Wet!

Stationerdery - my two Taschenbegleiters from Roterfaden. The big one is for work, the smaller one has a Techo for journalling and some other inserts for notes and tasks.

Gathering consensus is hard. Most of the time I don’t even agree with myself.
🤓 Importing my status.lol-status to MB (hopefully)!
I recently discovered a TV show called “Lie to Me” on Netflix. It’s old(ish), aired around 2010 I believe, but I am really enjoying it. Tim Roth plays a researcher who solves crimes by studying facial expressions, body language and tone of voice to see when people are lying.
I updated my Ferris Sweep with a firmware version that supports VIA, so now editing the layout is super simple:
Recently I have been diving into C++ programming again, and applying some principles from functional programming. I’ve already gained new (for me) insights about object ownership, memory management and state/immutability.
