How I archive my favorite TV show to get rid of Amazon Prime

Published on in ✍️ Posts

I’m a fan of the German TV series “Notruf Hafenkante”, which is shown on the public broadcaster ZDF and is also available on their website. New episodes are released weekly, and older episodes are also made available on a regular basis. After a few months, however, they are no longer available for free. At the moment I have to buy an extra subscription for a Prime Video Channel to be able to watch all the old episodes. But that makes me dependent on Amazon, and I don’t like that.

Published on in ✍️ Posts

At first I missed the news, but today I somehow stumbled across it: Google has released an early access version of “Chrome OS Flex”, as a result of the integration of CloudReady into Chrome OS. CloudReady also ran under my radar until today, but I did take the time to give both a try.
