My biggest asset? I Never stopped being a child.

Man kann diesen Plot verwenden, um das Konzept "Ausreißer" zu erklären, der Rest ist mehr oder wenig linear, es ist wirklich absurd, als hätte man einen Beispielplot gebastelt.

A recent scoop by Reuters revealed that mobile apps for the U.S. Army and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) were integrating software that sends visitor data to a Russian company called Pushwoosh, which claims to be based in the United States.

But that story omitted an important historical detail about Pushwoosh: In 2013, one of its developers admitted to authoring the Pincer Trojan, malware designed to surreptitiously intercept and forward text messages from Android mobile devices. krebsonsecurity.com/2022/11/u-

Another one in my upcoming collection: couldn't resist and got a #LEGO #Scout programmable brick from eBay. Shipping cost and VAT made up big parts of the price. Must be quite similar to the #RCX — but only two inputs and two outputs as you can see. Looking forward to test it some day.

Reading this article about Morrison's scheme where anybody can ask discretely for a warm meal at no charge and it brought me to tears. I think in part because it breaks my heart that some people don't have access to warm and healthy meals, in part because of the cruel environment that creates this situation, and in part because of the dignified way that people are helped with this.

An sich wollte ich diese Woche der bezaubernden Gattin den Dialekt unserer Region durch ständige Anwendung nahe- und beibringen. Vor die Wahl gestellt, diese Unterweisungen zeitnah einzustellen oder fürderhin im Auto zu wohnen, entschied ich mich dann doch, den Unterricht hintanzustellen. Weil in dem Kärrale friersch der ja da Zabbadeus ab!

4/x Rebuilding an old cheap bike is much more work than building an expensive new bike from scratch. You have to clean each part even before being able to decide whether it's possible to keep them. You have to start trueing wheels before deciding to lace new rims. Today I did the wheels and everything worked well. Pics tomorrow.

Recently, I was days away from doing my dream bike tour from Tokyo to Kyoto, zig-zagging coast to coast, over mountains and deep into hot spring territory. But I crashed 72 hours before I was due to take off, broke 9 bones and punctured my lung. While Zwift is ok, and am desperately waiting for the doctor's orders to expire and to get back out on the road again...

Today I was interviewed by a very nice guy from a German radio called ARD. I guessed D = Deutschland but when I asked what A and R stand for, he said something that lasted 20 seconds. So I thought I should re-share a cartoon I made a few years ago 😁

Ein interessanter Artikel über die Duldung von unrechtmäßigem Parken, die weder so genannt werden darf und natürlich nie schriftlich formuliert wurde. Das wäre ja unrechtmäßig.

Background: Here in get stripped and the frames are dumped. Since no one keeps track on serials of rims, it's nearly impossible to find the owners. There is even a growing number of bike thefts, where the frames are destroyed. Either by not taking care when taking a large lever to destroy the lock or by cutting the frame to get it fast.

Show thread

Your bike has so many serial numbers: Not just the frame, but also the fork, the rims, the hubs, the brake calipers. Sometimes the stem, the handlebar and even the tires. Create a spreadsheet containing the numbers for each bike. This will eventually prove very helpful.

I also put laminated paper strips into seatpost handlebar, stem, under rimtape saying "If found return to Mattias S. Phone +49 123…" So if it's not me asking a bike shop replacing handlebar grips, I hope they get suspicious.

Hat jemand Interesse an einem Lepper Primus mit gebrochener Spiralfeder?

Ich hatte einen zeitlang versucht eine Ersatzfeder zu bekommen. Erfolglos.

(Falls jemand noch so eine Feder hat, hätte ich auch Interesse an der Feder)
