Opening a safe - The DIY way


A few months ago I came into posession of a small safe. Okay, that sounds like I stole it. (Which I did not!). Let me phrase that differently.

A few months ago, someone sold me a safe without the combination. That sounds like I bought a stolen safe, so just marginally better.

A few months ago I bought a house, which happened to have a safe in it. The sellers inherited the house and didn’t know the combination.

Short story unnecessarily long, I had a safe and no combination to open it.

34C3 Watchlist


Another year has passed and that means another congress has been visited. This year the congress moved to Messe Leipzig instead of the CCH in Hamburg. I was sceptical about the new location in the beginning.

33C3 Watchlist


Okay, the 33C3 is over for quite some time and I didn’t write about it. Short form: I was there, it was amazing, I was sick afterwards.

I havn’t seen lots of talks yet, but here is my watchlist:

32C3 – My personal video list


Hi there,

After quite a long time of silence (*cough* Sorry about that) I think I can write a new post.

At the end of last year I was at the 32C3. That is the 32nd Chaos Communication Congress. This year about 12000 nice people got together and captured the Congress Center in Hamburg for four days. Apart from the giant program of talks (which I will talk about in a second) the main part of the congress is the opportunity to meet other people and have a blast of a time. I managed to meet a lot of nice people and I learned so much during the time that I will need some time to fully sort that in my mind.
