Neues von Harald Schmidt. Anfangs nervös (typische Ticks auf rechter Gesichtshälfte), gegen Ende in Höchstform!

Whoever had the idea that clicking middle mouse button in Windows should toggle scrolling mode should be shot. I fucking hate this dumb feature.

yeah, middle-click is paste... This feature killed me, too, 6 years ago when I was stuck on this mediocre OS at work :D

Miley Cyrus was elected "sexiest vegetarian" by PETA. You cannot get any sexier than her as a vegetarian. If you want that anyway, I guess it means you will have to eat meat?

"I have grown away from Nintendo because they don't do a very good job of satisfying my desire to shoot things. Hopefully they release more games like 'Shooting People Point Blank in the Face" to bring back the hardcore audience."

Would be funny if people like this wouldn't exist for real. So it is really sad

Our office is falling prey again to our tiny friends, the thrips. It usually starts with noticing some itch, and then when they call their friends you are itching everywhere. Interestingly the thrips are not really interested in humans, but they eat plants only. The biting is mostly an accident.

+Markus S. No I'm just a user and I like to follow its development, cause it's an awesome project with a nice community. I'd love to contribute at some point, though. Citra and Xenia are really cool too. Btw some of the Dolphin devs (e.g. Neobrain) are doing some Citra development now as well.

Update on my post regarding running with Achilles tendinitis: The highly cushioned Brooks Glycerin 13 shoes with special insoles do indeed help me. Walking is mostly painless now, so I actually wear them everyday, even in the office. However they cannot magically cure the tendinitis. My research showed so far, there is no real cure, besides avoiding running for a long time :(

+Wade Olson Also called "eccentric heel drop", right? I've read about that. Will definitely try, thanks a lot.

Fans of the band R.E.M. should watch this splendid new documentary, made by MTV. It features interviews and live concert clips from the beginnings back in the 80s until their disbanding not long ago. Mesmerizing!

In my home town of Ulm, a kangaroo escaped from a circus and ended up jumping along the railway tracks. Someone was lucky and made this awesome video, shot from a car window while driving along at the same speed (pretty fast!) :)

"We don't need unit tests because we have integration tests. We don't need integration tests because we have QA acceptance tests. We don't need QA acceptance tests because end users will report any bugs to us. We don't listen to user feedback because declining sales will tip us off to the problems. We don't pay attention to sales numbers because creditors seizing our assets will alert us of the shortcoming."

Finally my fancy Samsung Galaxy Tab S was updated to Android 5.0.2. It "only" took one year after release for Samsung to bake its crappy UI onto stock Android and add the useless extensions noone wants. This was my first and probably last Samsung device. The hardware is nice (I bought it for the AMOLED screen), but software wise they're only making things worse by customizing Android so much.

No carrier for me. I only buy unlocked devices, never any contracts.
