Real Life Statistics

I recently noticed the above relationship between posts-per-year and family size. This is Paul Matti, born 2012-03-05 (07:01am). He turned one today, and his sister also thinks that he is awesome.


1 I apologize for the lack of updates. Yeah, I’m sorry. But this time, I’ve got a proper excuse! Her name is Ida Klara, she was born on April 26th, and she’s awesome2! Yeah, I’m still on 32bit. [return] And no, that doesn’t mean I’ve stopped hacking. I have some interesting things going on, they are just not finalized3 enough so I can post4 them.

My personal iPhone-experience...

Sorry, no technical post today. I have a few project which just require the final touches, but unfortunately, I just wasn’t in the mood to do them. And you don’t want to read something half-finished, right? I’ve recently got hold of an iPhone. No, I didn’t pay for it, and no, I can’t keep it forever. The iPhone might be one of the devices in ‘07 which raised the most expectations (to either side).

iPod Nano (2nd) USB fun...

I just stumbled over that, and it seems that nobody else did yet (at least, I couldn’t find anything on google): Bus 001 Device 007: ID 05ac:1260 Apple Computer, Inc.

Bye, bye, xpc823...

I have known since years that the day had to come, but it was hard anyhow: My beloved iMac G5 (rev. 1) had to be taken down, in order to move to his new home, the waldobjekt. During the last few years, it always served well the kuehlschrank-website (it’s down now, of course!), provided a home for my emails (people are still calling me crazy for setting up the MX for my primary mail domain into a dyndns), archived our webcam pictures, connected my home to the world wide web (and even further), and had not suffered a single crash.


I apologize for the lack of recent updates. The main reason is that I moved, or better, split up, currently into three different places: My new flat, my old flat (which still takes care of a lot of my equipment), and a new home for electronic devices, called “waldobjekt”. The waldobjekt is a place which finally has enough space for all of my projects (and much more). >260 m² of space for storage, working and having fun!
