A simple solution for a small problem. boost if you know, what these are for.

I've also made an ISO 200/24°, but it's in use at the moment.

We have an Egyptian geese couple and they have bred 10 goslings. Only 4 of them survived. The others where killed by a Canadian geese couple. Now the Canadian goose seems to breed. I'm not sure, if she is sitting on eggs, but she sits very quietly in a hidden part at the waterside and he is very aggressive.

Unfortunately I dropped my assortment of 0603 capacitors onto the workbench. Luckily only a teaspoon full fell out, but it took me the whole evening to measure and sort them back in.

I hate my printer. It wasted lots of toner, then the waste toner bottle overflowed resulting in a mess. Now it doesn't recognize the new yellow toner cartridge and refuses to print.

I took my old b/w printer for the basement, but it doesn't feed the paper correctly.

Since I updated firefox from version 78 to 91, it crashes nearly every day, leaving a ~2GB coredump behind... Why is it so unstable?

Today I got the third time. Now I've got AstraZeneca, BioNTech and Moderna.

Wir haben neulich Schnelltests gekauft und erst später festgestellt, dass deren Erkennungsraten extrem niedrig sind. Darüber haben wir uns so sehr geärgert, dass wir eine praktische Einkaufshilfe gebaut haben: zerforschung.org/posts/schnell

I've noticed, T8 fluorescent lamps get banned in September next year by commission regulation (EU) 2019/2020. There is no good replacement, especially for the SkyWhite ones (8800K). LED tubes produce lots of radio interference, so don't use them.
I recommend, if you use T8 fluorescent lamps, to buy ahead.
To conserve energy and prolong the lifetime of your tubes, you can replace old magnetic ballasts with electronic ballasts.
T5 tubes will continue to be available.

PayPal shit 

I noticed, my TOTP generator is full. Getting rid of PayPal would give me a slot for a more useful account.

PayPal shit 

I'm really pissed off with PayPal. Just wanted to donate some bucks, but I got troubles updating my credit card. Then they wanted to send a SMS to a phone that doesn't exist for year. Trying another browser I could update my data. Now I tried again and they couldn't identify me. Really? I came from the same IP I always use, I entered my password and the TOTP. I also verified my old credit card and my new one. If this shit continues, I'll close my PayPal account forever.

I wonder why there's so much quality difference on plastic cards. My driving license (bottom card) is about 15 years old and looks quite good. The train ticket on top is about 2 years old and starts delaminating. The credit card in the same age is falling apart.

I also wonder why credit cards are still embossed. Has anyone seen a zip-zap maschine in action in the last 10 years? I haven't.

Got my new credit card. First step to do is to erase the magnetic stripe and write garbage onto track 2.
This effectively prevents skimming and due to the fact, that modern ATMs and EC-terminals ignore the magstripe if there's a chip present, the card still works without limitations.
Leaving the magstripe blank is not recommended, because some ATMs use it to prevent card insertion in the wrong direction.
