A very belated Happy New Year everyone!

I didn't toot much these last months, for lack of time and energy, but very much enjoyed reading what y'all are up to.

So thanks for the news and feelz and occasional crazy sparks.

Hope in 2022 there will be less chaos and more time to chat with you. 🌠​

This is from Tezuka Osamu's アイエル (also known as "I.L").

A wondrous masterwork.

Highly recommended!

Glad to see that the Goethe Institute India included , my ancient webcomic from , in their collection of so-called Graphic Travelogues.

The website’s a fun assembly of (mostly German-speaking) artists and their autobiographical travel from all over the world.

An offer to my -concerned bubble:

If you’re a bit freaked out about ’s content scanning plans and feel like it would be interesting to test the waters with alternative OSes, I could help you set up Linux-based .

Admittedly, I’m not very techy and can’t guarantee that we’ll get there, but I have flashed a few devices and all ended up running the Finnish OS without problems.

DM me if you’re interested.

In the mid-nineties I went to a signing at my local comics store.

I brought my first paperback from home because I couldn't afford to buy anything from that signing, and stood in line with my best friend and fellow nerd.

And I remember being awfully proud that Neil, after taking a quick look at us, advised my friend to “Dream a little,” whereas he signed my comic with an encouraging “Dream On”.

2021 – just helped a kid set up their brandnew , and boy, what a nightmare!

If you don't uncheck a box unmentioned during setup and hidden deep down in layers of preferences, the PS5 is always listening and remotely analyzing everything that is said to “improve its services”.

And to ensure this, yellow LEDs in your controller alarm you when the built-in microphone is _muted_, which was very counter-intuitive for the kid.

Yikes! Peak
