Dear Facebook: Seriously?

Saturday, August 8th, 2009 by Daniel M. Gattermann at 10:52

Dear Facebook, you’re telling me my mail@DOMAIN address is invalid because individuals can’t use generic mail prefixes. The reasoning behind this: they are often used by organizations. NEWS FLASH: It’s 2009 and I am indeed allowed to buy a domain name and do whatever I want with it! In ten years I’m using said mail@DOMAIN […]

A Scanner Darkly

Tuesday, October 16th, 2007 by Daniel M. Gattermann at 22:20

A Scanner Darkly — the movie adaption of Philip K. Dick‘s great novel. What does a scanner see? I mean, really see? Into the head? Down into the heart?
