Happy Friday everyone!🍺

So happy with the new wedge for the guider! But back to curfew in Germany and Norway should have no proper night anymore. Ah, god damnit.

Moody thoughts about the e-life 

And this comes out of seeing how good businesses and people (clothes, restaurants, name it...) are struggling when their main source of income gets derailed by a pandemic.

What if, at some point, what's not allowed to use is what keeps our work safe? What will I do instead?

Moody thoughts about the e-life 

It might sound stupid, but I am thinking that whenever all our digital life goes to hell, I better have other useful working experience.

And it is not just working, but everything, e.g who knows how to use a compass, and a map? anybody has ever documented a piece of work using an actual library? that is, going there in the first place, not after an internet search.

I'm in this a bit of a hopeless mood these days.

Sick-of-tech day. Honestly there are days in which I'd rather work handpicking lentils.

And last one. The groove of this, the echoed vocals, the reverberated piano, that thick bass... Ah, Sähkö 🇫🇮 ❤️

Happy Friday everyone!🍺

2021 goal: Morse, probably with a QSO in CW.

I feel very fluent in 4 letters already, but I must admit 10 words per minute feels real fast!

For those interested, I am using the IZ2UUF app with the Koch method. Listening, listening, listening...!

Easter has given me some time to go to the woods and shoot some of my favourite targets. Not the ideal time for some (Orion), or equipment (Pinwheel Galaxy), but I did had *a lot* of fun. Both the night and the company I had for once were the best decompression before getting back to work.

Hope everyone had good holidays too!

Blimey 31st of March and it's already 20°C 🥵 out there. Nobody told me München was actually Venus.
