Curious. I just updated iOS to 17.4 and am in the EU. Yet, I didn’t get any default browser prompt. Is that only the case when you have several browsers installed?

Just saw Dune - Part 2. Wow. The imagery was fantastic. Well told as well. Had me in tears at the end.

We did the Dracula escape room at Escape Rooms Mannheim today. It was great fun and we did beat it with 17 seconds to spare.

Oh jolly! The kids lost my Switch.

Currently reading: Dracula by Bram Stoker 📚 I found a really nice edition in the bookstore the other day. Every few pages there are inserts like letters, postcards, foldable maps or recipes.

Getting a iron infusion. Nothing like a little pickmeup on a Monday morning.

The organ tour was fun. Really interesting to see and actually step behind the pipes.

These are wooden rods that connect the organs keys to the pipes a few meters further up.

Tons of pipes.

One level down.

Behind the pipes.

At the top.

I suspect we are going up there later.

We are visiting a church this morning to get a tour of a disassembled pipe organ. Should be interesting.

Marvel’s Echo

Just finished watching Marvel’s Echo. It was underwhelming. There was a good underlying idea in there somewhere. I think. But by the final episode I still had no idea what it was supposed to be about. No clue about the main characters goals. But I love seeing Wilson Fisk portrayed by Vincent D’Onofrio. I guess that is worth something. Overall though. Sadly one big “meh”.

I finally managed to import all my old long form articles to Micro.blog. Had to do a bit of manual adjustments of my Kirby export to get it to work, but overall it went rather smoothly (after @manton pointed me in the right direction).

Eschenfelder Grain Press

Baking bread again today. We got a grain press (as opposed to a grain mill) in January and I have incorporated pressed whole grains in my pizza and bread doughs since then. They add some great nutty flavors to the dough. Highly recommended.

BTW. @manton how is your support email queue looking? I vaguely remember writing your around end of 2023 about importing my Kirby posts and some error it throws. I haven‘t heard anything so far.

Today I learned about the Republic of Molossia and have become a fan. I mean, what’s not to like? A toy train as the national railroad? A space program complete with toy rocket launch? Brilliant!

At an indoor playground for our little ones birthday party. 4 hours and I will leave a deaf man. 🧏‍♂️

Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you and your loved ones have a relaxing couple of days with nice company and great food. 🎄🎅

Sitting in the car, waiting to pick up my son from school, blasting Tubthumbing at full volume. Good times. 🎵

Apple Again Hikes Prices for Its Media Services

Not sure how I feel about this yet myself. Budget is getting stretched a bit thin.
