    xkcd explains the SSL Heartbleed bug really simply.

    Are you still there, server? It's me, Margaret.

    Easiest way of explaining why the Heartbleed bug was dangerous.

  4. 25.

    Tomorrow I turn 25. This is what I think about the coming years

    - Stop worrying

    - See new things

    - Don’t waste time on the internet

    - Read more god damn books

    - Listen to an album, not a song

    - Be thankful for the people around you

    - Have some confidence boy

    - Always be kind

    - Create something(s)

    - Eat well, drink well, live well

    The first 25 years have been wonderful. Thanks to every single person who has in someway or another been in them.

  5. Yesterday was the first day of my staycation where the weather had been half decent. After running by newly opened cafe, Two Planets, in Neukölln, I got on my bike and met friend Luke Leighfield at the Helmut Newton photography exhibition. The exhibition focused on his work in fashion photography, particularly what they were calling ‘porno chic’. I was most taken by his collection of portraits of the rich, powerful and famous. It’s amazing how much a photograph can tell you about a persons character.

    A 10 minute walk from the exhibition is Lon Men’s Noodle House. I have been meaning to try this place for months, so was very excited. We both took the number 3, a taiwanese style chicken noodle soup and a mix of gyoza. It lived up to, and potentially exceeded all expectations, I will most certainly be coming back very soon.

    The rest of the day I spent exploring west berlin by bike.


  6. 9-bits:

    Matt Gemmell writes beautifully on one of my favorite topics:

    Eventually, I began allowing myself to acknowledge what I’d always inwardly known: that there’s no higher purpose than making an emotional connection with another person. That the success of an endeavour isn’t in the broad strokes and metrics – the sales, or downloads, or ratings, or comments or whatever else – but in the myriad individual moments where someone would be briefly touched, or empowered. Ephemeral, unmeasurable, rarely reported. But critical.

  7. This week I’m on staycation. That means leisurely mornings, cooking, cycling and a lot of pottering about. This morning, inspired by Food52, I made spring onion potato cakes and egg. NOM.

  9. Laura and I went to Leipzig this weekend. It was a last minute decision. Only an hour away from Berlin on the train, with cheap accommodation, tasty local beer and friendly people, I certainly recommend that you go (I even did a Foursquare list)!


  10. This month was jam packed with hits, here are the sounds from February 2014. 

  11. Arctic Monkey’s trolling the Brits.

  12. This weekend I (just) managed to get myself a long to a few movie screenings at the Berlinale film festival, which has been going on for the past fortnight in Berlin.

    1. ‘Hundraåringen som klev ut genom fönstret och försvann’.

    Translated to English means, ‘The 100 Year Old Man Who Climbed Out The Window and Disappeared’. A popular Swedish novel that was recently translated in to English and released. It’s ridiculous, hilarious and a great read. Read it first (as always) then go see it. It sticks (fairly) close to the book, and is well done adaptation.

    2. ‘The Italian Job’.

    Ok. That’s definitely not new, nor did I go see it as one of the festival screenings. But, it’s a classic and thought it would be a fitting movie for an afternoon of cleaning and chores. It certainly was. 

    You were only meant to blow the bloody doors off!

    3. ‘God Help The Girl

    I had no idea about this one. A last minute change in plans meant I saw this instead of ‘Al doilea joc’, which was probably for the best as I found out that film was in Romanian with only German subtitles. Although, embarrassingly twee and like a GCSE bitesize introduction to Belle & Sebastian, I did really enjoy it. 15 year old me would have obsessed over it for weeks, and it was spot on for a Sunday afternoon.

  14. Sounds of January 2014

    January was cold. I spent a lot of time with my headphones on, and found a bunch of great new artists. This is what things sounded like.

  15. Sunday.
