It's the last day of the month and, yet again, I've only used about 500 MB of my 2 GB mobile Data. I must be doing something wrong.

Not a bad idea, but I'm not sure how much fun that would be in the country side :P

I can't believe I just watched a whole episode of Myth Busters. Must be Sunday.

As much as it pains to admit it, but I'm starting to change my opinion of Microsoft...
The change isn't exactly sudden; in my opinion Apple has long replaced MS as the big meany on the block, but I was still a long way from actually going back to use any of their software except where I had to (e.g. WinXP in a virtual machine for my scanner, which, sadly, is not supported under Linux.)
But when I signed up for Facebook, I wanted to use a totally clean e-mail address, so I created one @outlook.com. Since then I have installed some other apps on my phone — something else that's contributing to the change in my opinion, the fact that they even offer applications like their office suite, for free, on Android.
What really impressed me, though, was the way they set up the two-factor authentication in connection with the phone app. I don't know if it's as safe as Google's version (although I don't see why it shouldn't be), but it sure as hell is a lot more convenient. When you sign in from a new device, you'll get a notification from the app and all you need to do is hit "Approve" or "Deny". Beats typing in a code every time by a long shot.

And here's why I prefer to use KeePass with a locally stored database.

Aaargh! Why is it that ninety percent of women's running shoes are either completely pink or have pink on them?

I stayed at my parents house Saturday night, but I still wanted to get some exercise in on Sunday, especially since I had to work Saturday morning and had a six hour drive afterwards. The obvious downside of my treadmill (which I still love and use almost every day) is that it's not exactly portable :P. The area where they live is far less hilly than where I live, so hiking doesn't have quite the impact it does here, and also, since I had other plans for the day, I didn't want to take an hour and a half walking through the forest. So I brought my running gear and went for a run yesterday morning — for the first time in two or three months.
All I can say is, my other training (power walks on my treadmill and hiking on the mountain mostly) must definitely be paying off, because I lasted a lot longer than I expected. And from looking at the data from my watch it's quite obvious that of all the cardio exercise I do or ever have done, running is still the most efficient. So I decided to pick it up again and went again this morning. Unfortunately I noticed that it's time for some new running shoes, or at least will be pretty soon. The ones I have are still usable, but if I want to make this my main training, I'll need something better. Which brings me back to my original statement — WHY PINK??? 

Oh well. I shouldn't by shoes online anyway. I guess I'll get in the car and head over to Hameln tomorrow, since I'm planing to take an exercise break tomorrow anyway.

I guess the reason people are binge-watching TV shows is because most modern shows end episodes with cliffhangers... I'm perfectly OK with watching just one or two episodes of Hawaii Five-O (the original from 1968), but stopping to watch modern shows is plain torture.

There. I did it. I did what I said I'll never do again. I signed up for Facebook again. Sigh. There really seems to be no way around.
What I didn't do was install the official app on my phone. I went for Tinfoil for Facebook instead, which looks a hell of a lot safer.

Introduction
I hate writing about myself, but I'll try anyway.

I'm a photographer by profession, but I'm also a guitar player & singer... still working on getting better every day :)

I'm a bookworm. What kind of books? Well, a while back we had a visitor from the U.S., and he looked at my bookshelf and asked: "Are any of those books Science Fiction or Fantasy?" I asked him, "What do you mean, 'any'??" The same is true for my taste in movies and TV shows.

I like computers, but mostly as an "advanced user" — I ditched Windows in 2005 in favor of Linux, on which I'm doing all the system administration. My skills in Google-Fu are helpful with that :)

I'm also into web designing, although more for fun than anything else. My largest project is www.alangraham.de, but I also designed my two blogs and www.daniel-fernholz.de .

Politically, I'm a die-hard liberal.
