social media purge Show more
I just nuked my Google+ profile without bothering to port my old posts to my website.
Something tells me I’m going to hit the reset button on my website, too. Just gonna start over again without carrying over old content. Why? Because I can.
I’ve also nuked my Mastodon accounts on bsd.network and octodon.social.
Der Spiegel to run 23-page special on reporter who faked stories

The attempts at Germanizing ("eindeutschen") everything is something people often frown upon. We might still use Rechenzentrum (RZ) or Elektronischedatenverarbeitung (EDV). But in programming, we just translate English to German.

DE, home buying Show more
I really want to, perhaps next year, be able to buy a small apartment in Germany in one of the large cities. Because I am a bit sick of renting and I also can (ie by end of next year or year after I should have about 40k saved).
Problem is that I'm non-EU, I work freelance so I won't have access to mortgage options and I would be on some temp visa.
Also, I think home buying is not part of investment portfolio anyway and I should maybe suck it up and just invest elsewhere.
