24. December 2015 | By vannade | No Comments | Filed in: English, Rambling.

I really like Thunderbird, but one of the things that always bothered me is that as soon as you use more than one e-mail address, it becomes terribly cluttered.¬†Every e-mail address gets an inbox, a trash, a drafts folder – it’s just not pretty! Then there are the Local Folders, which are somehow different, there’s • Read More »

Meine neue Webeite ist nun endlich fertig, nachdem ich versehentlich beim letzten Mal, als alles fertig war, versehentlich alles wieder gel√∂scht habe. Jetzt wohnt die Seite bei statt bei Strato – ihr erster Umzug seit 16 Jahren. Eigentlich wollte ich eine Seite machen, in die mein Blog integriert war, aber letzendlich war es einfacher, • Read More »

His cat had had two tortoiseshell kittens, an orange one and two black ones. We were kind of hoping to get two different cats to tell them apart better, but as we • Read More »

IKEA Hackers

7. July 2013 | By vannade | No Comments | Filed in: English, Linkage, Rambling.

I found this cool post on IKEA Hackers that I’d like to re-post here for the record. I think it’s quite ingenious what people come up with out of necessity, either because they don’t have a lot of money or because they simply can’t find the furniture they really want. This simple desk requires two • Read More »

Japanese classes #2

9. May 2013 | By vannade | No Comments | Filed in: English, Rambling.

I had another Japanese lesson this week and found out that Japanese people have the same word for leg and foot (ashi). They also mix the colors green and blue. A lot of Asian children are also born with a Mongolian Spot, which I had never heard of before. We also learned more hiragana and • Read More »
