No idea, whether Keith Emerson made it to heaven, or has been sent to hell. Whatever, I hope that someone is saying thanks for his "Piano Concerto No. 1"!

Zur Wahl heute kann ich nur den ewig aktuellen Nick Knatterton zitieren, der die Frage des Obers ("Haben Sie gewählt") mit einem geistesabwesenden "Ja, aber es hat nichts genützt" beantwortet.

"Spanish made simple, foolproof spanish recipes for every day" is the successor to Omar Alibhoys very successful (and, deservedly so) "Tapas Revolution". It is just one year old, so far no translations available. (But who wouldn't prefer to read the original.)

We do like both books a lot, because the recipes are indeed very simple, but the results are always enjoyable. Omar uses standard ingredients, which will most likely be available in every kitchen, and super market. (Apart from Pimenton, and Chorizo, may be, which we order by mail, because we've learned to enjoy them. Sherry, and port wine, are mandatory, of course. We replace Coriander with parsley.)

I am not sure, whether I'd like his restaurants (My guess is, there will be mostly the rich, and/or the bautiful, neither of which I can serve with.), but give me a decent tapas dish every day.

Wow! Garry Kasparov is going to rejoin the arena. At least, he's announced as a participant for the 2017 Saint Louis Rapid and Blitz tournament as part of a stellar list, which includes Karjakin, Anand, Aronian, and Caruana. I am quite certain, he is still playing spectacular. At the very least, he's much better at playing chess than at doing politics. Here's hoping for some more years of watching him on the board.

Moderne Mädchen haben gelernt, dass der inflationär Gebrauch des Wortes süüüüß peinlich sein kann, insbesondere, wenn es mit einem entsprechenden Tonfall kombiniert wird. Zur Vermeidung haben sie eine einfache und den eigenen Bedürfnissen gerecht werdende Strategie: Sie verwenden das Wort cuuuuute - und demselben Tonfall.

The time is approaching one year, when ZFS was included as a binary module into Ubuntu (Xenial, aka 16.04) and as a DKMS buildable module into Debian.

Since then, I have heard nothing about ZFS on either of these platforms. So, I wonder: What's the status? Are people actually using it? And, if so: What are the experiences.
