Bye Bye Telefonica

Today I set everything ready for the switch away from Telefonica.
Yesterday again my experience were horrible in terms of network accessibility. I had no chance to get enough data flow to use any app. Furthermore the network totally close down on me not even allowing me to make a call. We were on the way to a Pokémon tour, and in five hours we were barely able to use Pokémon Go for about twenty minutes. Abd that with Full reception and best network coverage, because there are so many people around there was no free capacity. We experienced this now for the third time and this is not accessible.
So Switch Network providers and learn the lesson that good Office world nothing if the carrier don't have the capacity on their network.
Telefonica formerly known as O2 bought E-Plus, but apparently reduced the number of cell towers after acquiring the company. So while the coverage is good, the data network goes down if there are people around who are using the same network.
If you don't have the capacity to serve the customer's don't sell your product.

Ordered a Google Home - Now waiting...

Finally, I ordered a Google Home a few minutes before 8th August.
Now I want a cat bus delivery!
Too bad you couldn't pre-order to get it right on the 8th of August.  Waiting...

Moltres is mine now #pokemongo

Yay, I managed to win a raid. First time with 13 people, easy.
2nd time with 5 people. We won but then my network connection crashed (and the app) so I only got 1 even though I won 2 raids.

Welcome, you little firestorm...

Playing GTA V. Man that bunker is expensive

Here we go. Playing GTA V.

Recently bought that bunker after a long time working hard for the money.
And neo for the mobile control center. Another month (or 2) of playing.
Way too expensive.

Here we go again... hard work for the Netcasts 🔊

At least it's flowing today a bit.
I could manage to restrain from social media today. Up until now :).

But I'm thinking to do a new animated intro for one of the shows. Bad timing I know. Probably I'll better starting next week. That's what I thought last week too, but then Pokemon Go hit hard on my schedule 😦
It was a blast and I caught Articuno with nice accompaniment.

Now back to research. 私はそれが良いショーことを願って :)

Working without focus

You know that feeling when you need to do your work and you have absolutely no way to keep focusing. Geez...
I have so much work to do for tomorrow's netcasts and I can't get even started.
Screw social networks. The most unnecessary time killer in our time.

Line Messenger got me instantly with...

...this YURU-YURI Sticker Set

How cool it that?
So many officially licensed anime and manga stickers and even themes.
Sailor Moon, Detective Conan (case closed), Neon Genesis Evangelion, you name it, you'll find it on LINE. Amazing.

Cleaning up my Twitter contacts

Since I have set myself on a new direction back to tech stuff, I'm going to clean up politically related accounts and follow some more tech sites.

If you post too much political crap, you're also getting unfollowed. I'm glad to see, since I'm going back to the topics Tech, Computer, Android, Science, Anime & Manga and moives, some people committed to political stuff unfollowed me already and even blocking me (from both sides :) ).

This will be a radical step, since I make no exceptions. However, it will take some time to decide to unfollow or block someone. All the shit is going to vanish soon.

The same goes for western (and all other) mainstream media that spreads propaganda and lies. And those are many.

Wasted so much time on the format war

No more!
MP3, Ogg Vorbis, AAC, Opus, MPEG4, WebM, VP9, WebP, JPEG2000...

I'm tired of fighting windmills.
I just use the one that is offered by most devices. At the moment it may be MP3 for audio. 320kbps should be okay.
For Video... I can't even care for other than MPEG4. I mean come on... the same with JPG. It's horrible, but that's the format almost all consumer devices are using.
I can't just go and say I want a WebP camera. There is no such thing. And how many cams are there recording in VP9?

Sorry, I'm out of steam. The industry won, and the patent-free, OSS community lost.
I fought on for years, and I had only frustration and problems from it. I focused on the format, instead of the content.

No more... I'm too weak to fight for the users, I can barely fight for myself...

Watching Saekano

Saekano - How to raise a boring girlfriend.flat is the second season of this series. It's so tempting to see an anime about anime and game designer. It's like a works in their own world. Cool.
