insects 

I just caught the biggest insect (locust, grasshopper, whatever) I have ever seen in Germany (apart from dragonflies). It was about 8 cm long and barely fit into the glass I used to catch it. Unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to take a picture because my wife wanted me to get it outside as fast as possible.

The moment when 20 people wait for your presentation in a video call and your laptop decides to crash with a blue screen of death. 😱

I really love the Simple Mobile Tools by Tibor Kaputa (simplemobiletools.com/). They provide replacements for many apps which are usually provided by Google on most regular devices and can be downloaded from

When the automatic subtitle generator confuses German with English:

"okay assistance to desk NTFS in China as this Masako" 🤯

The game is a mix of a Shoote'em Up and a platformer. The first stage is pretty conventional and the story is about a damsel in distress. The real fun starts when the knight learns how to defy gravity after defeating the end boss of stage one (which again looks pretty badass).

I totally forgot that I backed The Cursed Knight (T.C.K) by Broke Studio on Kickstarter until I received an email last week. The supershot looks pretty badass.

I have 5 PCBs left for building your own Super Snapshot v5 clone (github.com/Kalidomra/SuperClon). If you are interested, I will mail one to you for free, I only ask for postage. One PCB weights 15g and I am located in Germany. DM me if you are interested.

Wegen gesperrter S Bahn musste ich praktischerweise am @hhwerbefrei Infostand stoppen und unterschreiben. Kannst nix machen 🤷‍♂️

I have finally created a account and I have added a few of the books I have read this year. Let's see if this keeps me motivated to read more.

Nice bundle of games. I already own several of them, but it's a bargain and it is for a good cause: itch.io/b/1502/the-40-years-of

I'm thinking about creating a account, but I am not sure how to handle reviews. I like to read books in English and German. Should I write reviews for books in the language I read them in or should I just stick to one language? Is there any best practice?

I was away for a few days and when I returned, I found Alice Sisters by , published by in my mailbox. I had completely forgotten that I had pre-ordered it in April. It's a puzzle platformer. I am dead tired tonight and only had enough energy to play through level 1, but I had fun so far. I mainly bought it, because it has a 2 player cooperative mode.

World'o'Techno is an amazing location specific generative music machine that has made the rounds at SHA, EMF, CCC and now #mch2022. It has a label that says "Please take the art for a walk" jarkman.co.uk/catalog/robots/w

I wrote down my long term vision for #forge #federation. A constellation of forges, where Free Software is grown locally and organically 🌱

@forgefriends @gitea @hostea @forgefed @codeberg #framagit are pieces of this puzzle, each developed with ❤️

There is no need for mega forges with millions of projects and tenths of millions of people ruled by a centralized power. ☠️

They must vanish and make room for thousands of small forges communicating with each other. 🤝

Whenever I read nonfiction books it really makes me doubt the authors competence when I find minor mistakes which could have been avoided by simply reading the Wikipedia article of the subject. 😟
