Testdriving #Lollipop  (5.1) now for 5 days on the Nexus 7. First impressions indicate that the device has become usable again! Thank you Android team! This update is truly welcome.

The best camera is the one you have with you.

True, I was very happy to have my #nexus4 around. Nevertheless I wish I took the Alpha with me ...

The north-eastern part of the Austrian Alps. On right hand side at the top of the image you can see the Inntal. But it looked good everywhere, I would not worry about next week!

Yay! It becomes usable!
 
My introduction to the Raspberry Pi 2 Model B. Hopefully I'll get one tomorrow if the wind is blowing in the right direction.
Today saw the release of a new faster Raspberry Pi. This time it's the Raspberry Pi 2 Model B. It now replaces the Model B+ that was released in February 2014 as the front-line model for the Raspberry Pi Foundation. The main changes are : 900MHz quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 CPU; 1GB RAM ...

Just don't expose it to bright light.

Definitely more intuitive then the explanation(s) back at the university.
 
The function to be integrated may be a scalar field or a vector field.

So, Line integral of vector field:
The particle (in red) travels from point a to point b along a curve C in a vector field F. Shown below, on the dial at right, is the field's vectors from the perspective of the particle. As it changes orientation, the axis arrows rotate to illustrate the changes in reference. The blue arrow is the field vector relative to the current orientation of the particle.
The dot product of the displacement vector (in red) and the field vector (in blue) results in the value represented as a green bar. This bar "sweeps" an area as the particle travels along the path. This area is equivalent to the line integral.

The 80s were a wonderful time to grow up in. Yes they were!

What'sApp is not helping your privacy?

SURPRISE

Die Privatssphäre-Einstellungen bei WhatsApp sind kaputt. Kennt man die Telefonnummer eines beliebigen Nutzers, kann man feststellen, wann dieser online war. Mit WhatsSpy und einem Raspberry Pi kann man das sogar dauerhaft protokollieren.

True, this is way cool. One does not expect this from the German government.

Edit: Unfortunately no more spaces left. Bummer.
 
I am unhappy about this.

I am unhappy because I do not speak German and live nowhere close to Wilhelmshaven, because participating in this would be frigging awesome.
This live-action role-playing game will be a genuinely immersive experience.

I am beginning to believe #Lollipop is out to get me. Newest bug I fell victim to, nicely orchestrated by Google's royal PITA Android 5.0: I behave almost normal except I don't play any sound.

Extremely annoying if you rely on your phone as an alarm clock.

Story
Tagline
Saarländer. Individual. Nerd. Software person. Tennis player. And some other things that don't fit in here.
Introduction
You know you have found the right Thomas if
  • you were looking for 'Riggs'
  • you are a Saarländer too (which means we are probably related)
  • your very mild superpower is Google+-circling people whose last name is some kind of fish
Facts about me that I am happy to publicly admit: I ...
  • Don't like fish
  • Like Luxembourg
  • Am fond of the greatest software ever written
  • Love to play tennis although I don't have any noticeable talent for it
  • Use the words 'evil', 'Oracley' and 'Facebook-esque' interchangeably
  • Take particular pride in my very mild superpower to organise and structure my thoughts without Microsoft OneNote
  • Love a suspicious (and ever growing!) amount of music that is older than 20 years
  • Relax by contemplating over landscape photos
  • Already have a bucket list although I am not even close to retirement
  • Violently support a the-right-tool-for-the-right-problem approach
  • Believe in Saarländish-Grandma's golden proverbs
  • Say Karlsberg Urpils is still the man's man's beer.
Bragging rights
Have watched Star Wars more than 200 times in one year when I was five years old. Han shot first.
