MLP IX: Random Teapot Operators

Blogging will probably be a bit slower this week again. I’m gearing up to move into my new apartment come next weekend. Thus I need to pack. Badly. But before that, some awesome links: Radioactive decay randomness? Hell yes! Russell’s Teapot. Here. How to do neat tricks with Google. See you later.

‘Tis the season to be silly…

Time’s up. Again.

Many of the things that have kept me away will be mentioned in separate posts later, but for now, here follows a list of show stoppers in no particular order: several concerts with various vocal ensembles buying my first own apartment being on tour with St [...]
