Schade, ich fand’s nett noch jemanden in der Timeline zu haben, der Android-Apps empfiehlt/sucht :) (ich bin immernoch zufrieden mit meinem OnePlus One)

Ich möchte mir gegen Ende des Jahres ein neues Smartphone kaufen. Mein im Sommer 2014 gekauftes Nexus 5 ist eigentlich noch flott genug für alles, was ich mit einem Smartphone so mache (das ist nicht viel: E-Mail, Twitter, Facebook und anderes auf dem Niveau), aber das Plastikgehäuse bekommt immer mehr Risse (meh) und die nicht so tolle Kamera hat mich schon immer genervt.
[…]
Aber insofern sich die neuen Nexus-Geräte nicht als absolute Überflieger heraus stellen, werde ich mir wahrscheinlich trotzdem das iPhone 6s Plus mit 64 GB holen. Und mich dafür schämen, dass Apple sogar Zweifler wie mich herum bekommt. Fuck.

Now that s01 is concluded, here’s what trakt and IMDb think.

In case you were wondering what that looked like in my case.

Watched Ex Machina.

Watched Ex Machina. I was entertained, the premise was interesting, and I didn’t quite expect the ending. Good one.

Can’t wait to watch Utopia. Heard a lot of good things about it. I assume you already watched Ex Machina (SPOILER!)? So far it’s one of my favorite films of 2015.

Humans

There are many things I like.
Among those things are stories that explore the differences between humans and AI, the very concept of intelligence and all that jazz. That’s why I loved Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex so much.
And that’s why I’m enjoying Humans a lot so far, having seen only 3 episodes, but still.

Another thing I like a lot are the recent dramas on Channel 4 (UK), like Utopia and Black Mirror. The nice thing is that Humans also features Neil Maskell, who was awesome in Utopia.

I thought you should know.

Awwww dang.

Awwww dang.

Welp, at least it ended in a good(ish) way, and not in a crash-and-burn kind of way.

By way of this blog post, I am formally (if there is such a thing in this context) announcing that work on Pants has been suspended indefinitely.

To the few of you still using it (I love you), this may be a bit of an disappointment, and I apologize. It definitely is a disappointment to myself; I’m very unhappy to be forced to make this decision, but there was simply no other way. The reasons are quite mundane; with me being booked pretty much full-time for consulting work (which is great) and now having a kid at home (which is also great), I’m simply not able to find the time (which is not so great, but it is what it is.)

For the last half a year or so, I’ve been telling myself that soon I would find the time to continue my work, but it never actually happened. Turns out having a kid does, in fact, eat up pretty much all of your spare time. Hugo, when you’re older, we need to have a serious chat!

So, what does this mean for you?

  • If you currently have a site hosted on my Pants server, it will remain running for the time being. Even with its sort of awkward architecture (which I was aiming to fix in IndiePants), Pants is pretty much feature complete and the only blogging platform I want to use right now, so I currently have no plans to shut it down. However, as usual, I can’t give any guarantees.
  • If you’ve been waiting for big new Pants versions or features, I’m afraid you’re out of luck, as I won’t be making any further changes to the code (beyond critical bug fixes et al.)

Please note that I am not looking for a new maintainer of the open source project. You’re very welcome to create forks, though.

Haven’t seen that, will put it on my watchlist.

Haven’t seen that, will put it on my watchlist. For some reaosn I have no problem plowing through multiple episodes of a show at once, but watching a >1hr movie takes much more commitment.

And regarding Utopia: Oh glob it’s so good.

Remember that Game of Thrones s05 data?

Yeah, still collecting that. See the other post about that (I even expanded that one).
Another fun thing to look at is the growth of votes on each episode. So that’s what I did just now.

It’s primarily interesting because the first four episodes were leaked, so keeping that in mind the respective graphs tell a little story about… things.

I usually blog about random tv show data stuff somewhere else but I think pants is a good place for one-off stuff, sooo… yeah, there will be more stuff :>

Game of Thrones season 5 episode rating development on trakt.tv

Boy that’s a catchy title.

Anyway, I’ve been pulling the s05 episode ratings from trakt.tv hourly since about the time s05e01 aired in the US.
I update these plots regularly and I intend to make a fancy webapp thingy with selectable date ranges and whatevs if it turns out that thing is actually going to be interesting.

I love this kind of data analysis. Please keep blogging about this! :)

If you plot it, opinion becomes data and therefore fact.

…Soooo… Idunno. But at least I have plots now.

But that’s like … their opinion!

(I never watched Angel, nor Buffy)

And other things people like me like to tell themselves to justify excessive plottage.

While I’m still watching Buffy (mid season 3 atm), I was wondering whether or not to watch Angel, the spin-off, too. Naturally, I did plotty things.
