John's Back!

Earlier this year, I was very sad to see John Chidgey shut down his amazing podcast Pragmatic. I'm equally happy, that this week he came back with not only Pragmatic, but a whole new network for podcasts that would not find a home on other networks. It's called The Engineered Network, or short TEN.…

Trying Medium

Cat just found my post on Geofencing and the follow-up on my site and suggested that I should cross-post them to Medium, just to reach a wider audience. So I decided to give it a shot. If you prefer reading some of my posts on Medium, you can now do so. As usual, my profile can be found @flohei.

Fixing My Game Boy

When I was 5 or 6 my mom gave me a Game Boy with Tetris and Kid Icarus. I never really got into Tetris, but I really loved Kid Icarus. A while later, someone (probably my mom, too) gave me a copy of Zelda: Link’s Awakening. I didn't know it back then, but from today's point of view, I'd count it as o…

Podcast 2015

Early last year, I put out a list of my top 5 podcasts. Since this list is a living thing and it changes frequently, I thought it would be good idea to update that list. And since the it’s hard to tell which 5 of all the ones I subscribe to are my actual favorites, I’d like to list all. Maybe this wil…

Watchmaking Art

I don’t know if this is just a phase, but recently I found myself intrigued by those little machines we call mechanic watches. Though I don’t own one myself, I really enjoy videos like the ones below. They let you peek into a world so tiny, filled with so much patience, accuracy, and focus, that it alm…

Burgerrezept

This is the burger recipe, we use most of the time. Sorry for only having this available in German. If I see any need for an Englisch version, I will update this accordingly. Zutaten 200 g mageres Rinderhackfleisch pro Burger Salz, Pfeffer Käse (Cheddar, Scheibletten, etc.) Bacon …

Today, Matt Gemmell released a new ebook on Five Simple Steps. It covers all the basic steps to get you started with Markdown as well as some advanced stuff like tables. As you might have guessed from the choice of my blog software, Jekyll, and my interest in Markdown apps like Whiskey, Markdown is…
