I’ve recently posted about these talks on “DNA: The Code of Life” that I found. I really enjoyed them, even though most of the contents were not fundamentally new to me. However, I want to highlight one specific topic that I did learn, and that kinda blew my mind… I had not even been aware… Continue reading DNA replication lifehack [en]
So I’m working at a huge software company and in my department we have this nice tradition of lunch-talks. The company buys pizza and we all eat it, while one hungry person gives ~1h talk. (Well, that was before the pandemic, now everything is remote and we have to fend for ourselves.) Most of the… Continue reading Biting my style [en]

So I’ve spent waiting for wind on the island of Djerba, Tunisia, for almost one week to no avail. (With one exception yesterday, that is, when I finally got the opportunity to go kite-surfing. For about 30 mins.) All forecasts for today looked equally bleak: around 5 knots in the early morning, afterwards nothing for… Continue reading The weather in Tunisia [en]
Never was a big fan of paper postcards, let alone Facebook postings. Hence, I’m going to dump random travel impressions here instead. Alongside some generic pics. And shout-outs to all my friends! Here goes… Firstly, getting around can get exciting in itself in Sri Lanka. The way of right always belongs to the vehicle with… Continue reading Postcard from Sri Lanka [en]
