Notes

Here you can find notes about things I discover or learn but are not (yet) worth a full-length post.

According to DWDL and heise.de Amazon has acquired streaming rights for UEFA Champions League games in Germany starting with 2021. Now I’m just curious if they will also do the same for the Austrian market which would probably put quite a dent into DAZN’s income.

John Scalzi wrote a quite favorable review of the latest Terminator movie:

Six films (and one television series) in, it’s worth it to ask whether the world needed yet another stab at the Terminator mythos. My response is: in this case, yes […]

I, originally, wanted to watch that movie but after it received a mediocre review by Ö3 I decided to sit this one out. Doing a 180, I’ll try to get tickets for tomorrow 😉

Gestern wurde in der Wahlberichterstattung und insbesondere bei Anne Will der Erfolg AFD wieder sehr stark als Konsequenz einer Kränkung, materiellen Schlechterstellung in Diskriminierung der Ostdeutschen gedeutet. Das ist gefährlicher Unsinn.

Sehr guter Twitter-Thread über den Opfermythos rechter Gruppierungen und den damit zusammenhängenden Erfolg der AFD in den “neuen” deutschen Bundesländern.

The server behind nodejs.org’s download page seems to be having a hard time right now. Downloads take forever which also slows down setup steps in systems like Azure Pipelines and GitHub Actions. At least there is already a ticket in the NodeJS GitHub project for it.

Wired has a quite detailed account on the “storming” of a Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility (SCIF) by multiple Republical house representatives. Politics, no matter where you look, makes the most chaotic kindergarden look like paradise nowadays.
