Look, it's 2012!

So… since my last blogpost, among other things,

  • we bought a lot of new furniture and home appliances (February/March)
  • we moved into a wonderful new apartment in Obertshausen and therefore finally left the student flat we lived in over the last eight years (March/April)
  • we bought a Roomba 780 that now keeps that wonderful apartment dust-free (April)
  • we bought a new dedicated NAS (Synology DS212+) that also doubles as a mumble server from time to time (April)
  • we bought a new HTPC (Zotac ID41) for the living room – we now actually have one! (April)
  • we bought a pizza stone and made some awesome pizza on it (May, June, …)
  • we bought Descent 2nd edition and started painting the miniatures (July or August?)
  • we did a trip with a rented mobile home down to italy (August)
  • we had an awesome housewarming party with our friends (for which even splitbrain and Kaddi took on the long voyage from Berlin to attend – awesome =) ) (September)
  • we extended our NERF blaster arsenal (September)
  • we installed a network-enabled control system thingy for the apartment's radiators (October)

and last but not least, I ordered a 3d printer laster week, an Ultimaker, and it's likely that this will be a new topic to blog about, which is why I'm now finally getting my arse up to write something here again ;-)

PS: More that happened can be found on G+, which is were I seem to be the most active these days…

2011 -- A tiny retrospective

So this marks the last day of the year 2011 – and I'm glad that it's finally over.

2011 was a pretty eventful year in my personal life, seeing both my mother and my father in the hospital (one due to an accident, the other due to cancer – both are fine again, phew!), me having major troubles with both teeth and sinuses in the second half of the year, and let's not forget the pretty stressy work life as well (although that nevertheless was kinda fun, at least after the first three months of the year that very nearly broke me).

At least the year ended on a happy note: We finally found a new appartment1) and will move there march/april 2012, we spent five awesome days in the Southern Black Forest, playing in an epic ton of snow, we had a nice and quite christmas and will celebrate the new year with friends. Also, I rediscovered LEGO as a means for relaxing, built some sets already *happily hugs parents and friends again* and will continue to do so (I ordered that one and got myself a couple of LEGO Technic sets for being busy until it arrives)

So here's to an awesome 2012 (because it can get only better ;-))

1) 76m² in Obertshausen, with a garage, two bathrooms, balcony, and – most important of all – a tub!
