Summary of the day:

"Daylight Saving Time" should be replaced by "Heat Adjustment Degrees"!

No more turning the clock an hour two times a year, just to "get more daylight". Instead, we mindfully shift the temperature scale by 15 degrees two times a year - to "get more comfy" during the colder seasons.

"That's an interesting though" , you might say, "but why should we do this?"

Because then, my program won't crash no more because of the missing hour between 2 and 3 a clock this sunday...

Today I found a simple solution for the 45°-tower-foundation. No odd-formed base anymore - I'm so proud of this construction ☺️

My room is a mess now though... πŸ˜‚

Hmm, well, that got better then I thought but worse then I hoped... πŸ˜‚

All life on Earth’s surface is powered by solar energy, which plants feed off. This energy is carried upwards throughout the entire food chain, providing living things with chemical energy which our bodies use to grow and maintain themselves.

So technically, you’re made of recycled sunlight. :invaderxan:

Don't trust cloud services. One day Facebook, Instagram and Tumblr will be gone too. YouTube will shut down, and so will Google Drive, OneDrive and DropBox.

Always keep a local copy.
