Gas prices are sick

20/10/2013 by

Payed well more than 5USD per gallon. 500 Pesos to gas up my bike. You guys are just insane. This is a third world country. While gas is around 3USD in the US we pay 245Pesos? More than 5USD? WTF is wrong with you?

Shark season at Rio San Juan

14/10/2013 by

Reef shark at Rio San Juan‘s dive site Las Rocas which is famous for it’s caverns and tunnels. I’m loving it! Will be back next Saturday. You’d better stay there…

Went south

I visited Boca Chica, Santo Domingo and the German embassy.
Hotel Mango still is a great place to stay and La Pequeña Suiza serves the best breakfast ever.

I met some old friends and sadly found out that others passed away or left the island.

If you ever need a fast ride from Boca Chica to the capital make sure to ask for Pauli. Schumacher is his younger brother from another mother 😉

Finally I ran into Rudi and his wife. Goodbye, have a great time and welcome back soon:


Let’s go for a dive!

Save the reef!

Best Firefox plugin ever

25/09/2013 by

Probably the best plugin for my beloved Firefox I’ve ever seen: RequestPolicy is a Firefox extension that improves the privacy and security of your browsing by giving you control over when cross-site requests are allowed by webpages you visit.

The idea for RequestPolicy was originally conceived in 2007 by Justin Samuel. Initial proof-of-concept work (i.e. make sure I can selectively block requests using a Firefox extension) was done in early 2008. Major development started in September 2008. The first stable release of RequestPolicy was in December 2008. For the next few years, RequestPolicy version 0.5 was continuously being improved. Planning and development of version 1.0 began in 2010. Version 1.0 reached alpha status in 2012.

Can’t upgrade due to low disk space on /boot

Need some space for your kernel and ubuntu/kbuntu/xubtunu/lubuntu didn’t free it? Can’t upgrade due to low disk space on /boot ?
This one’s for the shell. Here you go:

dpkg -l ‘linux-*’ | sed ‘/^ii/!d;/'”$(uname -r | sed “s/\(.*\)-\([^0-9]\+\)/\1/”)”‘/d;s/^[^ ]* [^ ]* \([^ ]*\).*/\1/;/[0-9]/!d’ | xargs sudo apt-get -y purge
