Todays music tip is "I want to be part of a youth movement" by Tocotronic which in light of the #fridayforfuture is such a contrast to how things were in the 90ies. The song is soaked in irony, while todays youth movement is in the need to be super serious.

Yesterday on my way home during sundown, amazing light! The shadow in the front is made by the train, then golden hour and on top dark clouds.
I'll be the first who admits that the changed texts are really cringy but SUSEs marketing creates high production value parody music-videos where they cover really good music:
Wow, I just watched interested a 1.5 hour video of two people playing (quantum) chess, very cool! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LikdmXfWO2A
When I was 7 or 6 or something, I remember my granddad, who was in the Wehrmacht back then, very often explained to me how they fought during the war.
One of the things which stuck with me was how many more people the Russians had in comparison with the Germans. He once drew on paper to explain how they did something like cross fire where they would just fire with the machine guns so the lines of fire would cross and from down the hill Russians would run...

Drinking beer with my parents at Hartleb (really good local beer). I'm especially happy mom is able to join us again.
I'm working with a German car manufacturer too and man, so many of the comments on https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=19287151 could be about my project, it's kind of devastating :/

I'm tempted to buy a server and serve my website, #mastodon #pixelfed and #peertube from home. I mostly need hard drive space and extending it on Digital Ocean is extremely expensive. In contrast spin disks are extremely cheap.
One drawback is the changing IP address, but I'm using duckdns and point a subdomain via CNAME to it for HomeAssistant already and I never had problems with accessing it.
Another is that servers tend to be fairly loud.
A short story from the podcast with my granddad https://jeena.net/pods/6
As a German teenager (17), during the winter 1945, he got deported to the Lidievka colliery in Donetsk (now Ukraina) to drain it, because either the Germans or the Russians flooded it.
He had to work in the mine for 9 months. He had to shovel six wagons of mud per day and got 1kg corn bread and (thin) soup 3 times a day.
I founda picture of the colliery: https://www.viktormacha.com/nejnovejsi/lidievka-colliery-donetsk-donbas-1545.html
"In 1939, 20,000 Americans rallied in New York's Madison Square Garden to celebrate the rise of Nazism -- an event largely forgotten from U.S. history."
