Paid extra for an RFID blocking wallet. Tested it out the next time I had to pay for lunch with my RFID card.
Placed wallet on reader, card is somewhere in the middle, beeep, thanks for you payment - fuck.

My wallet is a "Protact" with the A written like a German AE. 100% rip off, hope these pants are better.

Your body would thank you for it!
Eat one every now and then instead of one every day. You spend the same but will value "the one" much more.
The better ingredients also make for a better product which in turn improve your experience even more.

I still remember Hershey from my time in the USA. I wouldn't call it chocolate ....

Everyone who voted insightful REALLY needs to go to one of those companies and try good chocolate.
I don't each much chocolate so I only but the HQ stuff now. Milka, Mars or even Ritter - they suck compared to a good, higher coca content chocolate.
I get mine from a shop selling coffee because just a chocolate, average coffee tastes .... less then average.

Not sure if it is day 1 but watch out for "The Witcher 3" DLCs. They are going to mock larger companies by giving you their DLCs for free, well if you purchase the game. No need to preorder, just buy it.

One of the VERY few companies left that actually care about the consumer. DRM free from Day 1 - get it at

Review embargo yes but not until after the release of the game.
This is usually reserved for the real shitty games. The ones that are hyped to no end but ultimately fail to deliver.

That must be the reason the game runs like utter crap on PC as well. Ohh wait, it is not!

Orban has planned consultations over the next year to look for other ways to tax revenue generated over the internet.

How come countries always double dip?
I already pay income tax on every cent I make. Any other taxes are double, triple, ... dipping on already taxed money.

I really hope I will see the day when we strangle politicians by their fucking neck ties.

"new stuff requires new debugging methods on failure, avoid new stuff."

Not an issue with new stuff but I do have an issue with new features that makes things harder to use/debug.
I don't care about this on my laptop but I will switch to a server focused distro when I rebuild my cluster in a year.

This is why I really like Linux. Once you know Linux you can select a distribution based on features, not because it is hip.
