Lufthansa Online Checkin sagt: "Auf Grund von rechtlichen Vorgaben ist das Ausstellen einer Bordkarte nicht erlaubt. Bitte holen Sie Ihre Bordkarte bis 05.11.17 11:15 Uhr an einem Check-in Automaten oder einem Lufthansa Service Schalter am Flughafen ab."

Oha. Ob ich wohl schliesslich doch mal das SSSS erwischt habe? Ich fahre morgen besser frueher hin :-)

Air Berlin is being terminated, for the very last longhaul flight (Miami to Duesseldorf) the pilots seem to have decided to put up a bit of a show...

Ugh. Replaced the battery in an old MacBook, but it soon became clear that the replacement is broken: one cell swell so much that it blocked the touchpad. I finally got around to defuse that bomb today, four parallel 1k resistors should safely discharge it in a couple of hours...

This week in German politics was insane. The topic of gay marriage had been festering for 20+ years and now it didn't even take 5 full days between a half-sentence statement by Merkel in an interview and the Bundestag deciding the matter. (Positively! Finally! :-)

I really wonder though how much of this was strategy by Merkel: The other parties were preparing making this topic important but now it is no longer relevant for the general elections in autumn and none of the other parties can even take credit for making it happen. And by her voting behavior Merkel even has plausible deniability towards the conservative parts of her own party.

Schloss Neuschwanstein, picture taken from the Marienbrücke​ a week ago. This is a composite created from four pictures, the vertical angle must be around 100°. I'm surprised how well this worked, it's capturing the visuals of the place pretty nicely.

(Note though that this is not a lonely place - there are tourists everywhere. The bridge e.g. was so packed that they had a security guard to prevent gridlock.)

My hobby: During boarding I check for previous accidents of the plane on avherald.

Today I'm flying on D-AIHH, which had the spectacular APU issue a year ago that hurt a bunch of crew. Hope they fixed it for good...

I'm staying at Londons self-proclaimed "High Tech Hotel". Every room has an iPad and some kind of Android phone with a data plan, to be used for roaming the city. They have a menu of docking stations to borrow. I think there's an Apple TV in my room somewhere too.

But: They keycard I got for my room is a 1k Mifare Classic card, which is empty! This means they must be using the card ID for authentication - which is trivial to steal and duplicate onto "special" Chinese cards...

Alles kaputt.
