For our second anniversary, we gave Denmark 🇩🇰 a second chance yesterday and visited Sønderborg. A really nice city! And I can’t believe that it’s been two years already together with my wonderful girlfriend! ❤️

Finally online again

Published on in 💭 Thoughts

After being cut off from DSL for about 30 hours, I finally have landline Internet again. On the one hand, it makes me angry that the provider didn’t solve this faster (the whole street with hundreds of residents was offline), but on the other hand, it also showed me my dependence on the Internet. I could not really do anything, not even watch TV, because that is also only possible via the Internet. After my vacation, I will take care of creating redundancy via LTE to be safe from such failures…
