Möglicherweise strafrechlich relevante Kommentare können z.B. bei Hessen gegen Hetze gemeldet werden.

Uns gibt es noch auf Facebook (dieinsider), Instagram (die.insider) und Twitter/X (Die_Insider).

In der Gruppe "Wir wählen AfD" wird ein Bild vom Oktoberfest 2015 gezeigt. Darauf zu sehen sind mehrere Flüchtlinge aus Eritrea mit einer Maß Bier im Festzelt. Sie waren damals im Münchner Stadtteil Trudering untergebracht und wurden vom SPD MdL Markus Rinderspacher eingeladen.

Auch hier zur Info: Möglicherweise strafrechtlich relevante Kommentare die wir aus der Gruppe zeigen haben wir gesichert und geben sie der Staatsanwaltschaft.

Hier zeigen wir u.a. die Kommentare "Habe eine gute Idee die können ja Bergenbelse oder Treblinka wieder aufbauen kann man gleich ausprobieren." mit der Antwort "Torsten Pillkahn bin bestimmt kein Migranten Fan, aber deine Aussage geht mehr als unter die Gürtellinie. Denke mal daran, wie viele Menschen dort unter unmenschlichen Bedingungen ihr Leben lassen mussten!". Außerdem noch "Was recht ihr euch auf, dafür ham wir doch Lager, ich meene Unterkünfte, nich wahr.", "Nicht euer Ernst oder diese Affen wo ist Adolf." und "Einfach nur krank diese schwarzen Schweine ab in die Esse."
Auf Bild 2 zeigen wir die Kommentare "Amphibische Urscheisse." mit der Antwort "der ist gut den merk ich mir." und noch einmal vom ersten Kommentierer "Genetischer Abfall geht auch..". Weiter zeigen wir "ZUM KOTZEN AFD Wählen ES REICHT PFUI!" und "Zum Kotzen, Dreckspack."
Hier zeigen wir einen Auszug des Focus Artikels vom 12. November 2015 "Trachten-Optik bringt sie zum Staunen. "Wenn die Leute schon mal hier sind": Mit den Flüchtlingen auf der Wiesn"
Weitere Kommentare zeigen wir hier auf Bild 3. "Die bekommen bestimmt das Bier vom Jobcenter bezahlt.", "Unser eins säuft das billigste Wasser und die gehen zum Oktober Fest ich kriege das kotzen.", "Sowas trinkt deutsches Bier?na hallo die sollen ihre Kamelmilch trinken.", "Kein Eintritt für solche Kreaturen.", "Nicht ganz fair, vielleicht haben die Jungs einen besseren Job als ihr. Bitte keine Vorurteile wenn man nur die Bilder sieht." und "Den würde ich in das Bier pissen."

Thoughts after a few days of #TimeBlocking

- I can only do about 4 hours of #Focus split across two hour blocks
- The rest of my day is *filled*, which is why I cannot do more
- I get very, *very*, distracted. Very Soon. Progress on stuff is slow, and it’s is not helped with my mind flitting off to do different things or think different things
- I have poor impulse control. I’ve already opened up that social media page and clicking away happily before I catch myself. This is getting better
- The @neilhimself method helps. and is maddeningly, frustratingly easy, yet hard to do. Either do the task. or sit and do nothing. No other option. I come away sweating.
- I have taken on so many things to do, when I have a life that is quite uncertain. I need to make space and have margin. And until my life changes, this is how it has to be. Fewer commitments. Stronger commitments.

Here’s to slow, steady progress

#Compassion #Focus #Work The Power of Humility: Breaking Confirmation Bias for Deeper Connection, Compassion, and Learning: Research shows that intellectual humility can offer far-reaching benefits for both individuals and our society as a whole. Leaders in mindfulness and research break down the science of overcoming confirmation bias and the self-work that can open us up to new perspectives, productive collaboration, and compassion.

The post The Power of Humility:…

Announcements like this one are never easy, not for me and also not for others. In order to get stuff finished and done, I have to streamline my efforts when it comes to my side projects, though.

A list of my current side projects

I have quite a few projects running at the moment. Some are already released, others are not even close to release. Here is a list of the stuff I am working on:

  • #CASBAN6 – A serverless blog engine in .NET (6)
  • FishingKnots + 
  • A reader app for this site (MSicc’s Blog)
  • A runner’s tools application (details to be announced)
  • A Fediverse (desktop first) application (details to be announced)
  • Learning the Swift programming language
  • – ASP.NET CORE website for my apps

I will have a look at each of the projects and their future below.


The serverless blog engine series was thought to be a learning series for me and also my followers. The raw blogging engine (database and API) are finished and working (See the #CASBAN6 posts on this blog). The next step would be to create a website for both administering and also consuming the blog. 

We have learned already a lot, but at this time, I will freeze the project. I do not know when and if it will be continued as of today. I will also shut down the current used Azure resources to save some money.

FishingKnots + 

My FishingKnots + application is the reason I became a software developer. It started all back in the days of Windows Phone 7 (2011), and I want to keep this app alive on at least one platform. As I am now at home in the Apple ecosystem, the platform choice is easy to guess.

Android is a mixed bag, and I need to update all of my apps to meet the new Play Store rules (API level and so on). As I have no incentive besides seeing my apps in the Play Store, I will remove this app from the Play Store and stop its further development. 

Blog reader app

The blog reader app for my personal blog was intended to serve as a demo project for my WordPressReader library. The app itself has very low download numbers on all platforms. Most user’s read my posts on the web or in their feed reader application. I will pull the app from both the App Store and the Play Store. I invested a little in making my blog better on the web (which you may have noticed already). Additionally, I will also shut down the Azure NotificationHub that is empowering the push notifications in that app.

Runner’s tools app

As I finally became a non-smoker about 2 and a half years ago, I immediately restarted with sport activities. I ended up to fall in love with running as my principal sport. I have written a small but helpful app which has some nice features I need. Originally, I started with .NET. Due to the fact the app isn’t overly complex, I will port it to the Swift language and release it to the App Store then. This will be one of the projects I am focusing on from now on.

Fediverse desktop app

I am currently working on a .NET MAUI desktop app that incorporates traditional social media and the Fediverse. If you remember my past with UniShare on the Windows platforms, you may have a direction what that app is for. The app will be in the Mac App Store and the Microsoft Store on Windows. If it will ever come to mobile, it will be iOS/iPadOS only. More details will be announced soon.

Learning Swift

During my summer holidays this year, I started to learn the Swift programming language. As I wrote already above, I will soon work on my first app that is written completely in Apple’s native programming language.

There will be one remaining web project that I actively work on. The website for where I showcase my apps will be my ASP.NET (Core) project to keep up to date in that area. The current status of the website is work in progress.

The future of Android

As I wrote already above, I have little to no incentive of having my app in the Google Play Store. As the time for my side projects is limited, and I do not use Android in the foreseeable future, I will pull all of my apps out of the store and stop their development. I am considering to port SimpleLeet over to iOS and the Mac as another Swift project once I am done with the other two projects.

Blogging focus

I will keep blogging about my experiences, no matter which platform they occur on. You will continue to see blogs about tools, .NET, .NET MAUI (and Xamarin), but also Web/Cloud stuff and additionally, I will be blogging on my experiences with Swift. It will still be interesting and helpful to follow my posts!

Until the next post, happy coding, everyone!

One of my favourites prtins here is this one. It'S about focussing on things, like relationship, hobbies, travel etc. If you try to do all at once then it get's messy. Once you focus on each one at a time, you'll find a way better chance to get results. In the pictures coming out of the camera you can see the things mentioned before. And the little grin of the man shows it actually works.

I absolutely love Sunsama and how it takes care of your valuable time. There are no priority labels other than time.

From time blocking apps I have used first Sunsama, then Akiflow, then TickTick. All of them have pros and cons, but now that I have returned to Sunsama after one year I've seen it's improved since I last tried it.

I forgot how good it feels to actually FOCUS and see your productivity increase over time.

「 We found that (a) music generally impaired complex task performance, (b) complex music facilitated simple task performance, and (c) preference for external stimulation moderated these effects. Therefore, the data suggest that music's effects on task performance depend on the music, the task, and the performer 」

“Be vigilant around your focus.

There are so many things that compete for our attention in today’s world.

And so if you’re not deliberate, just like sort of drifting…

If I’m not tethered or anchored in some sort of way, I’m just going to drift.”

Anyone else genuinely struggle with focus, but can also hyper focus to the point that people breaking your focus is infuriating?

And so you sometimes intentionally self sabotage focusing on a task, because you are afraid you’ll accidentally ignore or grump at someone you love?
