And then my mobile was gone, but I chased the bugger...

So I was standing there, sunday evenings at the St. Pauli, Reeperbahn district, minding my own business, hacking some portals (it's an #ingress  thing), when a hooded smeghead approached me, ripped my phone out of my hands and ran.

I followed, quickly, cursing him along the way. A young Turk ran along, shouting "Let's catch the bastard!" and together we chased him. A couple of cut corners later, it appeared that we lost him. When we walked into another street, still gasping for air, I saw him again and shouted at him. Someone else was stepping out of a pub at that moment, immidiately grasped the situation and tripped the thug up. He crashed, hard. He got another good kick from the guy but managed to get up again and ran.

I was a wee bit out of breath by then. He escaped. My newly aquired brother in arms offered me his mobile to call the police, which I declined. They wouldn't catch the guy anyways, so what's the use...

I thanked him for his help and entered a hotel where I asked to use their computer and internet. The guy at the reception was very helpful. I logged into Google device manager and tried to check the location of my phone, but it was obviously switched off, or possibly destroyed during his crash. I remotely locked it and asked the guy at the reception to call my cell provider to lock the SIM, and he said no problem. After I finished my call, I was amazed to see the guy who tripped the thief up before entering the lobby. He brought me my umbrella back, which I lost along the way, and explained, that the thief might have escaped, but does now have a couple of bruises and a very bloody face. 
The phone was gone, but this should offer at least some consolation, he explained. I agreed and thanked him a lot. 

So, my summary of the night:
- one phone lost (but locked and probably destroyed)
- one bastard and
- three unexpectedly helpful and nice people

That makes it only one quarter bad, then, I guess...

And the things to learn: hold your phone tight! Use secure authentification! Use Google device manager! ...and maybe even practice running.
But in any case: there's always good people out there, too, who help you when you least expect it.

That's a Good Thing(tm).

On the bright side: a compelling reason to get a new phone! At Saturn you can get the Nexus 6 a little cheaper than at the Play Store.

As I already expressed elsewhere: he might be a good trick shooter - and there's nothing wrong with that,  mind you - but the tabloid-style exageration of things in the report might be a wee bit too much.

Baby no more!

My son turned six today. He was so excited that he woke up at four, explaining that he was unable to sleep any more (which he
eventually still did, I'm happy to say).

...So six years ago, I tiny, tiny baby-boy was born, and placed on my belly soon afterwards. He raised his head and looked me straight in the eyes for a few seconds, knowingly, then relaxed. The nurse said "oh, he's not supposed to be able to do that already!" - but of course he had to take a first look at his father.
Baby has grown quite a bit since then. Baby no more.

Happy birthday, son! - I'm awfully proud of you!

Ghost town appears to be hip enough for the ladies and scammers, now.

edit: they are all "digital consultants", by the way! What a coincidence.

sputter my beard?

hm - possible. So they use scripts to search for profile pictures that match a stereotype? Maybe those accounts are even NSA? laughs

I always suspected I was targeted by those glitter-picture posting muslim accounts because I am openly atheist and not shy on posting on that.

Thank you, +congstar, for sending me a replacement SIM really, really fast!

Except that you don't. Ordered on monday, first thing in the morning. Still hasn't left the building. And they insisted on sending it to my home address, where I won't get it, because, you know: some people have to go to work, and +DHL will (maybe) deliver the package some time between 8am and 8pm - is what's called "Express" it is! - so I'll have to wait another day to be able to pick the bloody thing up at some remote post office, opening at 9-ish, with a 30+ queue of elderly ladies and gents in front of me, who want to discuss their savings account and latest stamp editions and postage and how everything was so much cheaper back in the days of carrier pigeons (at length!).

Yea, like: thanks for trying to cure me of relying on my phone to heavily... :-( /rant

"Je suis Charlie"

Thanks to my mate +Thorsten Strufe, who sent me an issue of the magazine, I actually had a chance to check out the latest issue of Charlie Hebdot! - It's far better than I expected (I don't know why I expected worse), and it's just amazing how they were even able to make fun of the whole incidents so early after the attack on their office. Kudos to them! And a big FU! to intolerant, violent bigots everywhere.

And it was a test of (the remains of) my french language skills.
(I did surprisingly ok!)

Introduction
Resident of Hamburg, Germany. 

Coding for life, writing for pleasure. Proud father.
Sceptic. Mostly not serious. Sceptical about that, too. Seriously.

Interested in tech (the web, gadgets and Android, mostly), science, all things geek, good TV-shows, movies (the arty stuff as well as popcorn-ish super hero and scifi-flics), music, literature (no crime novels, please, apart from that I'll probably be fine with many books - and I actually mean the dead tree stuff, not bloody ebooks), arts, photography, philosophy and politics.
So many intersting things to do, see, learn - so little time!

I like ideas, I hate gossip.

What I post: I post/repost things I consider noteworthy for those that have me in their circles. If you read my posts, I really like to hear from you, be it a strong opinion, in favour or against what I wrote, or at least a +1. Thanks for that.

I am not a native (English) speaker. If I hurt your feelings with any comments or post I make, it's probably because I got lost in translation. Bare with me.
Or maybe you're just a dick ;-)
