From time to time I have something I want to write about. Seldom I also have the time to do so. In these rare occasions you will find a blog post at this place.

If you’re asking, about what I write: I really can’t tell. The most things you can find here in the moment are about Linux, coding, and similar stuff. But I won’t promise that this wont change. We’ll see…

New piece coming soon



Good News! I just finished the draft for my second piece. Now all I have to do before I can publish it is setting it. Stay tuned!

And I turned out to be possible, especially with the subblogs and the Rangitaki Control Center.

Seit gestern wird gegen die Macher des Blogs wegen Landesverrat ermittelt, da sie geheime Dokumente des Verfassungsschutzes veröffentlichten. Dies ist ein schwerer Angriff auf die Meinungs- und Pressefreiheit in Deutschland, doch bei weitem nicht der erste, wie ein Blogartikel von mir aus dem Jahr 2013 zeigt (Meinungsfreiheit in Deutschland?). Die letzte Ermittlung wegen Landesverrat war vor 33 Jahren gegen die Zeitschrift “Konkret”, und vielen sind auch die Ermittlungen gegen den Spiegel vor 50 Jahren bekannt.
