[sticky post] 2017 Scrapbook  
Think about the year that has passed. All the memories, the entries and posts that made the year special. Think about all your past layouts, default icons, mood themes or whatever you consider worth remembering. The 2017 Scrapbook Post is a way to help you remember all of that, in a single post.






Essentials


Yojimbo (temporary name?): My HP Notebook 17-y032ng (as of August 15, 2016). Never had a notebook before, not entirely sure yet what to make of it in the long run.


The Matrix: Windows 10 Home


Flagship: Mozilla Firefox 50 with currently 33 enabled extensions  —  needs to be updated


Emile, Calvin & Hobbes: 320 GB (Emile) and two 1 TB (Calvin & Hobbes) 2.5" external hard drives, powered via USB. For backups and very special pleasures.


The Roadrunner: My wireless Microsoft mouse, again black like the night and so far quite reliable.


Hesperus: My digicam (Canon), cheap and not very good, but okay for close-up photos.


(no name yet): My Canon scanner, powered via USB, much lighter and slimmer than The Tricorder.


Marvin: Samsung Galaxy Tab4 10.1, for the small online pleasures in between.


Hubble: My first reading glasses (since January 2013). We don't like each other very much, but I can finally explore deep space books properly again.


Tea, Tea, Tea!: Mostly green and preferably Japanese, currently rather non-flavoured; occasionally supported by Earl & Lady Grey. I don't function properly without my daily dosage of at least one litre.


Perry, Mia, Pukka, Sparky, Pip, Walter, Willow & Co.: My beloved plushies without which the child in me couldn't survive.

Additional Tools
7 Sticky Notes


Dandelion! | Full View
(since August 22nd 2016)

Still playing around with the Win10 userface. Now that I don't need one of those docking tools (like ObjectDock) anymore, having the taskbar on the left appeals to me somehow. And sticky things! Always wanted to have those.
Planet Express | Full View
(since April 28th 2017)

Futurama's Planet Express ship in a detailed, pseudo-realistic version by artist Alexey Zakharov. This is probably what the ship would look like in a live action series/film. Which hopefully will never happen, although the settings would surely look magnificent.

Come with Me
(made by me | since January 1st 2017)

I've just recently rediscovered one of the biggest children's classics in German television history, Die Sendung mit der Maus (The Show with the Mouse), a mix of educational shortfilms, adorable cartoons with the Maus and her friend, the Elefant, and animated shorts (Krtek, Shaun the Sheep,...).
I also found out the show was created the same year I was born. This userpic is one of the first I ever made and even still like (a miracle, trust me). Here's to a fresh start with a tasty pinch of nostalgia.

Resolutions


  • Find my reading mojo again.
  • Continue to try to lose at least some weight.
  • Stop thinking too much and learn how to distract myself in such cases.
  • Be a little more radical in certain situations.
  • Stop making plans which ultimately fail anyway. Like the ones listed here.
  • Keep my little room clean and tidy.
