Just bought a turntable and it came with this. Not only is #FreeSoftware all over the place, companies apparently now also care about letting their users know about it 👍🏻
There is some irony to shipping a CD with a turntable though 🤓
It seems like the servants of the Allfather were watching over us.
And there were also some nice ice crystals in a cave.
Spent the weekend with some wonderful people in a cabin in the hills. Ate lots of tasty food and went for two small hikes!
Weather today? Blizzard.
Weather tomorrow? Blizzard.
Weather on Sunday? Blizzard and Blowing Snow.
Well, I guess they call it #Iceland for a reason.
As someone from #Germany, am always astonished by internet and phone services in other countries. I just got a contract in #Iceland that has unlimited traffic at ↓500/↑500 Mbit/s.
The building already had fibre and the technician quickly pulled a cable up to my flat (for free).
I could have got ↓1000/↑1000 Mbit/s for 10€ extra. It took them 2 days to set everything up from submitting the order. And one can change ISP at any time.
I managed to get out of town for the first time last Saturday. Great views from Mount Esja!
And, yes, that's snow on the mountain 🤩
Some people in #Iceland are sad about the weather. I am sad that I had to pay 10.68€ for this piece of Emmentaler.
Walking through down town Reykjavik and suddenly I am in #BaldursGate! This place is truly magic. I hope they have a bag of holding for me, I have always wanted one of those 😀
It's the end of my first week in #Iceland. I have pretty much walked all over Reykjavik already!
Happy that my quarantine is finally over, but sad that the bars have been closed this weekend, because of Covid.

A very good read:
The Decline of Usability
I always feel like an old man when people tell me how modern mobile touch UIs are so user-friendly and how desktops are so bad.

There have been a few other guides, but I basically had this written already! Hope it helps some folks.
