Spending some quality time with my 10 year old Sony PRS-650 and a dark ale.

Today is the day: I'm finally replacing the HDD of my X200 with an SSD.

Sigh. This is burning a hole in my bookshelf for years now. But with 4 young children and a job as an embedded developer, I haven't found enough time and motivation or was too tired to start learning in the evenings. But the itch is getting stronger again. I may have to find a way to get at least a little time for every week somehow soon. πŸ˜…

Made my first swedish cinnamon buns today. They look and smell awesome. πŸ˜‹

Yay! I finally got hold of a used Raspberry Pi 3 to start playing around with OpenBSD. If everything goes as planned, it will replace my Arch based Pi1 B+ home server.

I made a pen loop for my pocket bullet journal out of some left over elastic band stapled onto a piece of an old plastic card. The original cardboard version didn't survive the encounter with our two year old daughter... πŸ˜„

Time to fire up this cutie and finally start building me a DS18B20 based brewing thermometer. Hopefully this will handle the induction hot plate interference better than my Ikea thermometer.

GOG made me an offer, I couldn't refuse. Now I only have to find some time to actually play...

...and it's done. Time to call my wife and the kids and bake the remaining two pizzas.
Over and out.

90s here I come! Accidentally used up all my mobile data capacity for this month. Looks like I'm throttled down to 32 KBit/s for the next 8 days...

All that's missing now is web pages playing midis in the background, blinking text and animated gifs with rotating @-symbols πŸ˜†
