Archive: Sonntagshorn in November (9 black & white photos from a memorable hike in 2008) #photography

November could be a quite miserable month in the border regions of Bavaria in Germany – low hanging clouds would linger on all day long, creating a gloomy atmosphere that would eventually cause “lowland cabin fever”. The cure is a hike in the mountains,…
November could be a quite miserable month in the border regions of Bavaria in Germany – low hanging clouds would linger on all day long, creating a gloomy atmosphere that would eventually cause “lowland cabin fever”. The cure is a hike in the mountains, of course, to get above the miserable clouds and into the …

Archive: Pieces of Amsterdam (10 photos, April 2008)

Random impressions from a weekend trip to Amsterdam. I explored the city and some of it’s historic sites, mostly by foot – and made photos (obviously). These are probably not the most typical selection of travel photos – but certainly the ones that I like…

Steel vs stone is my favorite photo, just because I can imagine your thoughts when you first saw it. Motion and lots of time, basically history just sitting there.

Abandoned Communities #music #ambient

A (dark) ambient gem worth preserving (commentary about that below the Bandcamp player) and promoting, even though it’s not brand new anymore. It flew a little bit under everyone’s radar I think, despite the fact that it was conceived by prolific producer…

It's quite ironic that I have to use a registry fix from a third party site to keep Microsoft from shoving their Windows 10 privacy nightmare update down my throat.

What's more, I had uninstalled and denied the KB3035583 update that shows the obnoxious notification, and now Microsoft decided to just bring it back. That's bordering on malware.

As a result, I disabled automatic Windows updates on my system entirely, and carefully check the list of updates that are "on offer."

And how the folks at Microsoft came to the conclusion that rolling out a 2.6GB download for a new OS version as an "update" through their Windows Update mechanism to millions of W7/W8.1 PCs is completely beyond me. This pushiness reeks of desperation.

I think there is no chance we will ever get it for Linux. It's a marginal market. And Linux users generally are not willing to pay for software. I'm not one of these hardliners, though. But for me darktable does it's job fine, so there is no need for an alternative.
