Just remembered this gem of a childhood show.
TBT when the sun shone. Most of the time at least.

A beautiful thank you note from Matt at Berg. I’m sad to see them go, seems just like yesterday when we hung out and discussed the backend for all IoT services.
Look at this study It concludes that the average American is better off than the average German. That if Germany was a US state it would be the 39th poorest.
But this conclusion may be wrong for two reasons.
-Income is much better distributed in Germany than in the USA. When there is such…
That premise is ridiculous. I’d say most Germans live better than most Americans in the _richest_ states.

"What I might do is watch Mrs Doubtfire. Or Dead Poets Society or Good Will Hunting and I might be nice to people, mindful today how fragile we all are, how delicate we are, even when fizzing with divine madness that seems like it will never expire."I did, and I cried.
This reads as if he moved into my old flat… it’s disgusting how UK agencies are treating tenants - every single person I know in London has a story to tell. In my case it involved 6 weeks of winter without a working boiler, ridiculously leaky windows, and much more.
Finally built some furniture again, to replace the ugly black Billy shelf next to my desk. This is a super simple shelf made from multiplex (roughly 110x35cm) and structural bolts.
Each level is built like a bench that stands on the next one. I made cut outs for the feet on top of each level and alternated in/out for more stability.
If you copy, look out for clean cut boards, and use good router bits. I used shitty old ones and the holes and cutouts are pretty burnt (also, the basement smelled like a forest fire). I also had to do some trickery on the upper level bolts.
Total cost was about €150 (100 for wood, 50 for bolts and stuff).
