The fact that many children during my school time and many people I talked and worked with in my youth did not come from the region I grew up seems to have had a significant effect on my German language.

was completely wrong in my case. :) At least 300 miles wrong.

Quiz. What is that?

And why I needed it today (among other tools, like plastic tweezers)?

often a magnifying glass which you press between your eye lids is also part of this toolset.

It is a tool to open watch lids to be able to access the movement. (:

The last days of the Orange brand in Switzerland.

Normally Orange is a brand of France Télécom in most countries, but in Switzerland it has been sold 2011 for CHF 2B to the private equity fund Apax.

End of 2014 it has been sold to Xavier Niel, and he relaunches the service as "Salt" ( http://new.salt.ch/ ).

That marks the end of "Orange" in Switzerland.

I am sure, trillions of people will tell me that it would be perfectly ok to work like this, and that I was an old guy not adapting to the modern world - building from scratch, who needs that anyway.

None of these "fancy" tools still builds by a traditional make command. Every tool has to come up with their own, incomptaible, and non-portable "method of the day" of building. And since nobody is still able to compile things from scratch, everybody just downloads precompiled binaries from ...

I am ambivalent about taking this article too seriously—namely because of lack of fact checking/blanket statements (e.g., claiming that Maven & Co. involve unsigned artifacts when that is patently false, for instance.  one could use unsigned within an intranet, but then why even use Maven in the first place?  Both Ivy and SBT all rely Maven, so the same conclusion applies to them).

I am just seeing a failure of imagination/knee-jerk get-off-my-lawn when this article made the rounds a few weeks back.

A clock with an uncertainty of  2 × 10e−18 ?
Sounds like a nice birthday present.

Damn, that clock would be out of sync for one second since the big bang!

Interesting read:
Real Estate prices (rental apartments/houses, apartments for sale, houses for sale) are going down in Switzerland in some regions, especially also in the Zürich area.

Most notable is the relief of prices in the Geneva area, it is the second year house prices are falling there.

The new "VIP" service includes a decent travel bus with very good seating and a very responsible driver. A small snack and lemonade is included.
