Sorry to have to put this at the top. I delete comments that are abusive or off-topic, and quickly block commenters who combine that behavior with hiding behind a pseudonym and/or having a profile picture showing something other than their face.

Hi, I'm Florian. I'm bilingual (German/English), and occasionally pretend to speak other languages.

Google+ doesn't handle separating content by language very well, so I've decided to abuse Collections for that purpose.

If you'd like to see everything I post, just follow this profile. If you'd only like to see the content in a specific language, please go to https://plus.google.com/+FlorianHaas/collections and select that language. Thank you!

I just used Optimistic Merging for the first time. I wish I were still able to send Pieter Hintjens a thank-you note.

This guy is an excellent person. I've known him for about 10ish years now and he has always rocked, and likely always will.

Österreichischer geht's nicht: Betriebsversammlung ankündigen, Flüge streichen, ~10.000 Passagiere vergraulen, Betriebsversammlungen wegen Krankenstand absagen.

Vor langer Zeit in einer weit entfernten Galaxis habe ich einen japanischen Geschäftsmann kennengelernt. Er hat mich zu meiner ersten Konferenz in Japan eingeladen, bei meinem Vortrag gedolmetscht, mich beim Auswendiglernen meiner japanischen Einleitung unterstützt, mir Akihabara und Asakusa gezeigt, mir beigebracht, wie man richtig Soba schlürft, und mit mir Teriyaki-Aal gegessen. Das Meishi-ire, das ich mit seiner Unterstützung bei einem Lederhändler erstanden habe, verwende ich noch heute.

Ich habe heute erfahren, dass er nicht mehr unter uns ist. Danke für alles, Kubo-san.

+Booking.com so:

"Als wir Sie das letzte Mal gesehen haben, waren Sie gerade dabei eine Reise nach Stockholm zu planen. Wir hoffen das die Buchung problemlos verlaufen ist. "

Hnnnnngh.

... aaaaaand another vendor-abandoned Android device successfully upgraded to +LineageOS 14.1. (No 15 builds available for that device yet, but at least all available AOSP patches up to February.)

For those of you who, like me, aren't intimately familiar with LineageOS (formerly CyanogenMod) device codenames, here's the list of the 10 most popular LineageOS devices:

1. OnePlus One (2014)
2. Samsung Galaxy S III (2012)
3. Samsung Galaxy S5 LTE (2014)
4. Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 (2017)
5. Motorola Moto G (2015)
6. Wingtech Redmi 2 (2015)
7. Motorola Moto G (2014)
8. Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 (2016)
9. Motorola Moto G (2013)
10. Google Nexus 5 (2013)

Monthly Android security updates for phones up to 6 years old.

By the way: #30 is the Nexus 4, also released in 2012. It stopped getting updates from Google in, I think, November 2015?

And #19 is the Samsung Galaxy S II from 2011 (!) with 16,355 active installs.

I've never developed Android apps, much less made a living with them, so this is probably a really dumb question but I'm curious anyway: what drives an app developer's decision whether to offer a paid/premium ad-free version or not?

If this were straightforward one way or the other, then I'd assume either all apps would offer that option, or none would. But in reality some do, some don't, so I'm guessing there must be a bunch of variables that influence whether you make better money off ads, or off premium subscribers/buyers.

Someone clued in willing to enlighten me?
