Google removed K-9 Mail from the Play store with zero notice because the description of the app included alternate spellings of the app name we'd included to work around how bad Play's search is.

I did write "debatable" next to it though (just for myself) so I could move on to the next topic.

While doing homework for my German language class, I found a conflict in the Deutschkursbuch and what I have learned from film history class (the problem/question is about the film "M" directed by Fritz Lang).

While I know I should just match the book when choosing the answer (it's a True/False decision) and there also might have been something that I missed in the reading comprehension portion leading to the question, it just feels really weird selecting the "wrong" answer as correct.

Hausgemacht Gemüseeintopf mit Karroten, Tomato, Blumenkohl, Rote Paprika und Zwiebel gekocht in Gemüsesaft, Kokosmilch und Rote Beete Saft.

One of the reasons why the FOSS world is often split when it comes to political topics:
FOSS attracts mainly two quite different crowds: The user freedom aspect (plus lack of state control) attracts many staunch libertarians, whereas the aspect of cooperating "for the greater good" (plus lack of commercial control) mostly attracts progressives.

It's actually quite surprising that those two groups, who usually hate each other with passion, can cooperate on the same thing.

I know there are other options out there, but going to try to stick with Wordpress (at least for now).

minor/small venting 

Revisiting Wordpress for the first time in a few years.

I like it because it's well supported and I don't want to code my next personal site by hand.

But at the same time I like simplicity- not fully minimalist/barebones, but something where I'm not spending a lot of time looking for where things are to toggle them off. I'm sure when you work with it all of the time it comes naturally, I'm just not there yet.

rms, the state of free software, etc. 

finished writing this one the other night, may as well put it out there a bit: p1k3.com/2019/10/20/

Dreams 

I guess I have traveled so much in the last few weeks (and still on the road for three more) that I am waking up from dreams within dreams in an unfamilar place and asking people passing by which city I am in.

Btw if the first @apconf talk you watch is this one (my keynote), you should know that the audio is better on all the other ones but mine. We made an error in the audio setup and so we had to use the audio from the camera instead of from the microphone I was holding. Considering that, it sounds ok-ish! But definitely very echo'y... sorry.

We fixed the issue after this talk, so the other ones generally sound better.
