Why you need several SSDs in your PC

See these SSDs? In a typical system you only have one of them: SSD A (can also be a hard disk). It has your Windows and your files: Your personal stuff like financial data, health information, your nude pics, your passwords and so much more!
With it you do your taxes, receive emails, surf the web, and so much more.
You connect this PC with all your personal data to websites that might be infected.
Are you worried? Probably not. (If you were, you would not be using Windows.)

Here’s the thing: Using this PC to surf the web is like sticking your hand into the behind of an infected person while hoping the rest of your body will not be affected.

This is what Techno sounds like

Sometimes I am asked what Techno sounds like. Here are some examples. (When Soundcloud greys out the sound display, click the X in the right upper corner.)
If you want to listen to these, I suggest good speakers or headpones.

A bit of a warning. If you are not used to this kind of music you will probably not like it. It takes some getting used to.


An Ambient track. Could be at the beginning of an opening set. (“Ambient” is a musical genre.)

Another one:

A smooth Dub Techno set by Nicolò Faggiani. Dub Techno is easy to understand. Also well suited as lounge music.

A fast set of minimal, hypnotic Techno by Lars Huismann:

You may find this one difficult to listen to. (People like me to clubbing for this):

This one probably is also hard to swallow for beginners, but at the right time, at the right place, with the right crowd, music like this is exactly what one wants. This is about the style you’d hear in places like the Berghain: minmal, hypnotic Techno.

This is not a set, but a single track. You may hear a minimalistic Techno piece like this „when the night is advanced“ in the club. Phantastic track, if at the right time and if you are in the right mood. Dark, quite abstract and „reduced to the max“.

Another minimal track:

A relaxed set by DJ Yazi. A particularly nice track is between 33:00 and 37:00.

This is a diverse set by Emmanuel. Notice how he beautifully transitions (at 7:00) from  the fast piece from the beginning into a a different one with a hypnotic, dreamlike quality that’s nevertheless brisk.

This is a Dub Techno track by Twisted Psykie: “Strangers”. (The words are from the movie “Dark City“.)

Next: A smoooooth Dub Techno set by Thomas Carmody. At around 26 minutes into the set he transitions quite nicely into “Strangers”. (Another transition into “Strangers” is in the set by Nicolò Faggiani above, at around 51 minutes, by the way.

There are more sub-genres of Techno. You can find then at Beatport or Bandcamp for example.


Two videos: This one is a documentary about a Techno DJ:

And this is not Techno:

17 Days and 16 Nights in Berlin – Day 17 – Tresor, Berghain

Day 17 of my Berlin diary. Day 1 is here.

Shortly after midnight I arrive at the Tresor club (see header image). I decided to go there twice, because the music was sooo good last weekend.
Less happy this time. To me it sounds like the DJs know more about volume than music. At 4:30 in the morning I don’t want to wait any longer for better music, so I leave.

17 Days and 16 Nights in Berlin – Day 15 – Sisyphos Club

Day 15 of my Berlin diary. Day 1 is here.

Today I want to go to two clubs: The Sisyphos and the Wilde Renate. Both should be open during the day today but maybe I misunderstood Renate’s announcement (or do suffer from idiocy): The door is closed when I arrive.

Day 13 of my Berlin diary. Day 1 is here.

If one is in Berlin, it is not a bad idea at all, to visit Potsdam and the castles. The park of Sanssouci is breathtaking. It is very large and has many interesting things to see.

17 Days and 16 Nights in Berlin – Day 9 – Vulva, Art, Dildos, Tresor

Day 9 of my Berlin diary. Day 1 is here.

My life is almost perfect!

1 – I am less tired. My body is in sync with my nocturnal lifestyle now.

2- I finally found what I was looking for!

3 – Thanks to my favorite escort lady, when I look in the direction of my bed I am looking at a sweet vulva that’s lying there, waiting for me to lick it!

But first things first.

Charlottenburg looks nicer than the areas of Berlin that I usually frequent. There’s this palace, but I am interested in other things.
