So, yeah, this is happening. A 50MP picture shot with a cell phone. What will they think of next?

This time I had coffee with +Maria Sukhareva, an amazing computational linguist from Russia. Maria is an intrepid traveler, having been to North Korea and switching her itinerary on a dime when needed. Expect more from her, she's (as I said above) pretty cool.
Coffee and an Expat is an ongoing series about interesting people having made their (temporary or permanent) home in Germany from locales afar. It features the business and private lives of those who decided to see new things, do something a little different, and become through it students of a new culture and teachers of a different way alike.

Trying my hand at illustrated prose.
  I walked the dark alleys and dimly lit streets to find myself in a lost city. At night angels wear high heels and the devil smokes expensive cigars in the back of a limousine…

Damn, Europe, you're so smart. You know what's up. That's why Chancellor Merkel calls the Internet "new ground" ( #neuland ) and advocates for "Internet Fast Lanes." And that's why a majority wants to change our net neutrality laws.

I'd suggest they read up on it. But because the EU also considers eBooks and eMagazines not books or magazines (because you need an additional device to read them, unlike movies and music which don't need a player or display or something to be enjoyed) but "services" and therefore taxes them higher than books and mags, I fear they won't read anything written this century or the final ten years of the last one.
EU member states have voted in favor of allowing the prioritization of "specialized" services.

Yup, seemed not so long ago that EU was far ahead of the US when it comes to digital rights and net regulation. And now look where we are... Sad.

Weird thing happened with #windows10  10041 - things got crisper. First I thought it was just Chrome being less ill-behaved when it comes to font handling, but it's everywhere. Fonts are rendered much crisper, corners and non-90° lines as well. MacOS suddenly looks blurry and jagged to me, and that's never happened.

Yeah, I only got one out for March. Hasn't been a good month for me, so this is what you'll have to live with, I am afraid.

Schloss #Heidelberg  - The ruined northwestern side of the building stands in stark contrast to its 200 years younger (ca. 1740) eastern sibling. Conservation efforts are now in place to protect these almost 600 year old structures from total decay.

I would have loved to have visited Baden-Württemberg when my wife and I were in Germany. It is definitely on my list, particularly Heidelberg and the Black Forest.

This is a good thing. I've always wanted more of this, my Google Drive image collection is getting somewhat huge and unwieldy. Yes, it's visible in Photos, but I can't move it from inside Photos as well as I would like to.

Combine the natural language search of Photos ("sunsets in Italy", "beer") with the ease of storage of Drive, and you have a winner. That's really all I want, not this shitty #AutoBackup  app that sometimes sees my SD card, other times not, and has no dupe detection.

Very nice, comfortable, and friendly place. Oftentimes a slight bit overrun (it IS the student hangout) but always worth a stop. Don't miss.

This is not how you do Mongolian BBQ. One run only, unfriendly, long lines, and no real selection. Count me out.

It's a Hooters, what should be said? Other, maybe, that it's the least sanitary place I've eaten in in a while. And I've eaten in some *real* dumps. This one takes the medal, though, from vomit all over the bathroom (not on a full party night, just a Thursday evening, half empty) to sticky tables and food under ours. Oh, and the smell coming from the kitchen... gasp.

Used to be good, has sadly gone downhill in the past months. Maybe it's a new source of their meat or simply less care taken at the pit, but Junior's is no more the great place it used to be. Still four stars with hopes it'll come back.
