We made a little bit over 1 liter of fresh apple juice from windfall, about 3 kg of fruit after cutting away all the bad parts.

scary-elements

As I mentioned before I wanted to put all of my Polymer elements (all the useful ones at least) together in a collection.

To give them a proper home I have now adapted the Polymer Element Catalog (https://github.com/Polymer/polymer-element-catalog) for my needs, to have all the docs in one place:

https://scary-elements.firebaseapp.com/

More elements will be added whenever I develop something I consider useful and stable enough for wider usage.

discovery-check v2.1
https://discovery-check.firebaseapp.com/

After a total rewrite of my discovery-check tool earlier this year [1], I spend some time after I/O to integrate some of the new features announced to improve the site even further.

I now have a cron job using Node.js in the App Engine Flexible Environment [2] using the new Firebase SDK [3], so no more missed diffs if no-one checks the APIs manually.

Source code: https://github.com/Scarygami/discovery-check/tree/master/server-task

The web-frontend now makes use of the app structure, elements and tools suggested by the Polymer App Toolbox [4], with an app-shell, lazy-loading of fragments and a service-worker generated during the `polymer build` process for offline-support.

Source code: https://github.com/Scarygami/discovery-check/tree/master/web

Can't make use of the full PRPL pattern [5] just yet, because Firebase hosting doesn't support HTTP/2 just yet, but I might try uploading it to App Engine with HTTP/2 Server push enabled to test the difference in performance.

Hmmm... I wonder what would happen if you trained a TensorFlow model with Stack Overflow questions and their accepted answers, and then let it loose on all the unanswered questions...

<poke-icon>

Jumping on the hype train (and yes, I'm 37 and having fun playing Pokémon Go when I have the time, deal with it) I've created a Polymer element to cover all your needs (or at least some...) for building websites with lists, stats-pages, tips and tricks, and a multitude of other things concerning Pokémon Go (or the first generation of Pokémon in general).

For example just include <poke-icon name="Dratini"></poke-icon> and you have a lovely baby dragon displayed wherever you want it.

Only small icons at the moment. If you have a source for SVG images of all the Pokémon, I'd love to hear about it :)

Turning a purple cauliflower into cream soup. In the end it will probably be a nice shade of grey.

Recipe is essentially the same as my recipe for mushroom cream soup, except with cauliflower instead of mushrooms: https://plus.google.com/+GerwinSturm/posts/Ke6WtJ4QgAA

After having used only the red currants from twigs that needed to be pruned last weekend, we harvested the rest of the red currants today (about 6kg) and turned them into about 4 litres of red currant syrup.

nice, if you like currants, you might also like Gooseberries.

Red currant juice is one of our favourite home-made fruit juices, and once you harvested enough red currants it's really easy to make.

Yeah, it's better for conserving with more sugar, and we mix it with about 4 parts water to 1 part syrup.

The best (organic) ice cream you can get in Vienna. Also has a lot of vegan options. Make sure to try elderflower (Holunder) and pumpkin seed oil (Kürbiskernöl) which are my favourites. They also have a kiosk at the Schönbrunn zoo which is a nicer place to eat an ice cream in my opinion.

Nice and clean rooms, friendly staff and great breakfast (they have a wafflemaker!) Only complaint I have is that my room had the next building directly in front of the window, so it was dark all day long, but I didn't spend much day-time hours inside anyway.
