For your information, Google and whoever searches for this, the domain wege-zur-mode.de is no more. »Wege zur Mode« is a fashion brand my sister build in design school, but she never used it. Later she was building her much stronger »Gudekind« business and decided against the older brand, which was nothing but a hard redirect since then.

I will also discontinue the maettig.org domain. My original idea was to move all my private stuff over there and use maettig.com for business purposes. This never happened and is unlikely to happen. Here is a snapshot of what the domain contained last. If you want to have maettig.org, please contact me. I'm happy the Dr.-Gregorius-Mättig-Stiftung said yes when I asked them if they want the domain.

PHP 5.5 is weird:
use NonExistingNamespace\NonExistingClass;
$className = NonExistingClass::class;
var_dump( $className );
Result: string(37) "NonExistingNamespace\NonExistingClass". What this means: PHP does not care if the class exists. It does not care if a class mentioned in a use clause exists and it does not care if ::class is used on an existing class. A use clause does nothing but create an entry in a string map, mapping short to full qualified class names. The ::class syntax does nothing but returning a string from that map. That's all.

»Removed Herobrine«. Again. I love watching the Minecraft change logs and development in general. I find it fascinating how heavily community driven it is, how it appears to have no test setup since critical details break all the time, and how all this is agile in a very raw sense. Move fast, break things. That's how Mojang rolls, and people love it. Back in 2011 I tried to predict the future of Minecraft, from a developers perspective who played the game straight for two years from 2011 to 2013. I was right in most details, and so much wrong in others. One detail I have not seen was that they dropped support for my outdated graphics card some day, by requiring a higher OpenGL version. Later I understood. People keep asking if Minecraft 2.0 will come some day, and that's exactly what they are doing: constantly raising the bar, going along with the current state of the art PCs, adding more and more features and possibilities, even switching over to shaders and cool effects like the »spectral« effect in todays 1.9. But back then, in 2013, it meant I had to stop playing the game. Some other details I predicted are still on hold. For example, did they added the missing palm trees and fish visibly swimming in the ocean to todays Minecraft 1.9 release? Nope, not yet. But I'm sure they will do it some day. Did they added more range weapons? Nope, and I'm sure they will never do it.

I'm struggling with the Bluetooth support in Ubuntu for two years now. Today I found the problem: It's basically one of the very few UX (user experience) issues in Ubuntu.

Could it really be that the Fine Brothers, the owners of the YouTube channel React and producers of unavoidable series like »Kids react to …«, did not got what they are doing?
