Not even three months after we embarked on this project, c't uplink graduated from the beta phase with episode 1.0 — it's now officially a thing and gets announced on heise online. Pretty scary but also very cool. In the latest episode, we talk 4K displays and more.
After twelve years of being together, of moving to Australia, of living hundreds of kilometres apart for a year, of being through thick and thin together, after twelve years of love and sometimes of pain, Katy and I decided to marry last month. We did so without telling anybody.
After months and months of work, I've finally completed my Land Raider Crusader. The very last steps like the detail work and weathering always take the longest amount of time, compared to the base colours. I'm pretty happy with the result, although there's definitely room for improvement.

The latest episode of c't uplink was released over the weekend. After missing a few episodes, it was time for me to come on and talk about Heartbleed (what else). But since I always bring the show down with gloomy topics, I also brought something fun for a change.

Today, news of one of the worst security vulnerabilities in recent times broke. A bug in the very popular OpenSSL library was discovered that allows attackers to extract keys, passwords and data from both endpoints of an SSL/TLS connection. This is an absolute nightmare.
