Ever wondered how to easily visualize the results of collision simulations?
Probably not, but I created a tutorial using the amazing :

I'm already in Vienna that early because I am travelling to Chemnitz to join the Linux Days there.
There is still many train stops ahead, but I'm already looking forward to it. Sorry for rambling a bit, but this is something I wanted to get out. 🙂

So you want to make your own analysis of the Austrian Radio station music selection or just want to find your favourite song again? Go to and browse through the collections of , , , , and more!

On the other end of the spectrum there is Radio Wien which didn't play a single song more than 83 times.

"Google Analytics bietet uns sehr viel mehr Auswertemöglichkeiten"

fühlt man sich unweigerlich verschaukelt. Was sind denn diese mysteriösen Auswertmöglichkeiten«, die einen Einsatz von Google Analytics bzw. der Datenkrake rechtfertigen? :think_bread:

You think about the websites whatever you want, but it is amazing that they are not making any kind of third-party requests and are using nothing apart from @Matomo for website analytics.

#FollowFriday is here! Since we're new, do you guys have any suggestions for who, you reckon, would be good for us to follow?
