It's donation time again, probably the last of this year. I donated 150 euros to Theo de Raadt. Happy Canadian Thanksgiving!

In Nunavut the stop signs are different.

This is my friend Aaron.

The snow reduced visibility pretty much...

First Snowday of the Year

October 9th, 2013

I'm in Iqaluit, Baffin Island, Nunavut, Canada. It's near the arctic circle. I came here 2 days ago. Yesterday we had a storm with gusts of 100 Km/H go through which dumped a bit of snow. It is the first snowday in iqaluit of the year. Temperatures are hovering around 0 degrees Celsius and are expected to drop a little. Although I do not have pictures at the ready yet I did make some pictures and I'll be sharing those soon. I'm in good health and spirits and will be back in the south of Canada in 2 days and back in Germany in 3 days. Weather permitting of course.

SVPRadio appearance came and went

September 26th, 2013

I'm in Toronto, and was on SVPRadio yesterday and it turned out very well. Perhaps more later, I'm travelling to Saskatchewan soon.


e* came and went

September 23th, 2013

Both the equinox and the election (both start with e) came and went. Again I voted for the Pirate party and we got 2.2% which is not enough for the pirates to get represented in the Bundestag. I'll give the pirates one more chance at the european elections but if they strike out (3 strikes) there then I'm going to possibly vote for someone else next term.

As far as government I'd be happy with a grand coalition or a CDU-Greens coalition. As I don't think the democratic parties want anything to do with die Linke (who is the 3rd highest). Anyhow I knew it would come to this but I didn't know the FDP would be so weak :-), but it's all better this way anyhow.

I'm not a fan of the "Ueberhangs Mandat" which is a threshold that excludes parties in parliament which get under 5%. 2.2% is worth around a dozen seats in parliament so this is sorta undemocratic to prevent small votes.

As far as the impact that the pirates made, perhaps there will be a new shuffling of parties next election. I'm hoping for more issues based on the snowden revelations, and more politics regarding the Internet.

... is equinox and the federal german election. I'm gonna try voting for the pirate party. Let's see if the clocks really do tick different in Bavaria than in the rest of Germany.


Pirate Party got 2% in Bavarian election

September 15th, 2013

I did vote for them. And I feel a bit bitter. Anyhow perhaps in 5 years there'll be another chance for them. It's good however that we got 2% in.


Southbound Equinox in 7 days

September 15th, 2013

Next Sunday the planet will be at right angles between axis and sun. People on the equator will have the sun directly overhead.
