Mock nicht. Probier lieber aus, auf welche Wörter der Ausdruck matcht und auf welche nicht. When you see it…

So, today, Gmail turns 10 years old. One gigabyte of storage! Speaking of which, I don't remember the last time I saw a bounced mail with the "full mailbox" error.

We built a little tool for DTD inference: 
http://www.tks.informatik.uni-frankfurt.de/pages/staff/people/freydenberger/dtd-inf

Don't know if anybody can use this on a non-toy scale right now, but someone might be able to turn it into something useful. (Basically, it is a proof of concept that we used to generate some examples for our journal article).

It might be. Basically, we take the parse trees (which we have in the XML), and for every non-terminal N, we look at the sequence of its children. From that, we learn an automaton for the (non-terminal) language of children of N, and transform this to a regular expression (that is the hard part). This expression is then use as the right side of the rule for N. 

 If your grammars are local enough, and if your right sides of the rules are "kind of linear", it might work. The good thing with XML is that data is often more or less serialized, which leads to expressions like (a?,b,c+)+.

So, apparently, they released "Typing of the Dead: Overkill" on Steam.
http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2013-10-30-typing-of-the-dead-overkill-released-on-steam
Which is fine, unless you happen to live in Germany, where they have not made it available, probably for the usual reasons. (Ve haf strict laws protectink ze children from ze programs zat teach ze typink. Or from violins, but as zere are no musikal instruments in ze game, I zink it is ze typink.)

But! According to some guy on reddit (http://dd.reddit.com/r/Games/comments/1ph3z7/typing_of_the_dead_overkill_now_on_steam/cd2g9tp), you can buy a steam key on Gamefly, which works with a German steam account. (Didn't try this one; but I never had problems with imported keys.)

Ironically, it's those laws that make many gamers consider violence.

Huh. How could I miss this? +Christian Buggedei, you might be interested in the part at 1:19.

How curious. I recognized most of the scenes from the game (e.g., the "first names or last names" scene). I didn't know they turned that into a movie.

LEGO® Marvel™ Super Heroes Gamescom trailer

This looks even better than Lego DC Super Heroes. (Oh, and I totally missed last months news that you can play a creepy lucking Howard the Duck. Sadly, probably no Dr. Bong. Waugh. Also, no statement on MODOK.)

+Vlad Wing I wouldn't classify Lego as a mechanical construction game (For that, I preferred fischertechnik. BTW, nowadays, they have hydrogen fuel cells.)

Lego is more for construction of play worlds (like, the one square meter spaceport with monorails I built so many years ago, or giant space cruisers). Also, Lego has monkey ninjas, brains in jars and skulls that glow in the dark.

+Maximilian Kubillus Dafür kann man bei den Legospielen große Teile der Umgebung zerstören. Und ganz, ganz viele Sachen freischalten.

So, do you remember the cucumber soda I drank in Seattle back in 2012? Last Saturday, I found cucumber syrup (http://www.monin.ch/main/p_id/447/obj/81/nav/480/nav2/447/lang/2/call/101/detail/1.html)

So, this summer will be a summer of various attempts at a good recipe for cucumber soda. (Also, the last few days were days of various attempts at a good recipe for cucumber martini. Not there yet, but found some promising leads.)
 
Yesterday, we bought some soda. Cucumber soda. It takes some time to get used to the flavor, which is surprisingly strong, almost like a liquid cucumber. In fact, I ate quite a few cucumbers that tasted less cucumbery.

The package also gave pairing ideas, e.g. salmon. Might try some of those.

Bénédictine, Cucumber, (small) batch (Bourbon)?

This is my video of the demolition of the AfE-Turm. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

For some, it was a beacon of critical thought. For others, it was a bastion of left extremism. For me, it was a great place to buy warm sandwiches. Now it is gone.

A short thought experiment on nerdery. I saw people complain that Ben Affleck is the next Batman, and others who complained that the next Doctor is played by yet another white dude. Why not combine the two complaints?

Obviously, it would be silly to complain about Ben Affleck being the next Doctor (which, obviously, is not the case, unless one wants to claim that Peter Capaldi is Ben Affleck, which is conspiracy theory territory - let's just not do this).

But! Why not have a woman play Batman? (Yeah, you could whine "Because it's the Bat*man*, and Bat*woman* is a different character." To which I answer: "So? Who cares?")

Also: Why not have a female James Bond? (According to the theory that James Bond is not a single character, but a codename for a bunch of guys.)

+Tatiana Azundris Easy? I don't care about easy, I care about interesting. A non-male or non-white Doctor is such an obviously viable choice that thought experiments in this direction are boring. (Of course, one can still complain and hope that this makes the people in charge realize that it could be time for such an obvious choice. This might be necessary, but it is tiring and also boring.) 

Those other bat people are comparable to having Romana around (or, more or less, River Song, or Jenny, or Doctordonna). Regardless how interesting or cool they might be, they are secondary to the central character. As a very wise imp from the Mite-Dimension once said: "Batman's rich history allows him to be interpreted in a multitude of ways." I want a new and different interpretation of Batman, not just some experiments with the supporting cast. 

Why ask for some small steps, when you can ask for radical ones? It's not even impossible: They could just revive Elseworlds and make it a oneshot or a miniseries. They could.

I simulate Collatz iterations in regular expressions. Also, if you give me a regex optimatization program, I'll be able to totally break it (with high probability). Furthermore, I am a certified telex operator.
