    I have a short iPhone 12 mini update. As much as I wanted to, I held back because I'll have to purchase a washer soon...
    I don't blame you.
    Almost came very close to getting a new washer as well. Turned out to be a false alarm thankfully.

    I'm glad that you didn't have to. Those things can be expensive. Because of space, I have to get a smaller one. I have one in mind that will work but figuring out the installation and setup is a whole thing. It's on the sites to buy but I might be out of the delivery radius. I have to see.

    It's literally just a few buttons to press. Not that I'm a pro user or anything, but I do know hot to warm my food with it (even though I don't like microwaving food).
    Normally that wold be true, but is is also an air fryer and toaster oven all in one. It is so much easier to say " alexa cook 18 minutes at 400 degrees" or say "alexa microwave for two minutes" than to press all the buttons in the right order to get all of that done. I am getting lazy in my old age.

    I have a project assignement to model/simulate an RMU device (Ring Main Unit) using a tool of my choice (it'll be Matlab/Simulink as always lol).
    And I have to be honest, I've always enjoined these kinds of task and assignements rather than pure studying and taking tests and exams. I just have more freedom of choice in how I want things to work and look like, plus I learn A LOT in the process.

    But I do understand that exams serve their point. I wouldn't have the knowledge needed to do this project had I not passed all my previous exams.
    Ring.... Main Unit? Is that the One Ring to rule them all?
    I'm in the midst if my Tolkien marathon... I recall watching the animated Bakshi film on TV in late 70s, and later managed to see it the cinema. Bigger screen matters. I progressed on with reading the novels, at least once a year!! Slight obsessed, I'd say.
    The Peter Jackson's Fellowship of the rings is almost 20yrs old, rest of the trilogy still holds up very well, thank you...

    Covid spiking here again, the vaccination rollout is just too slow. People are really pissed. Damn.

    Anyone else here addicted to watching the live streams of the Fagradalsfjall volcano near Geldingadalir on the Reykjanes Peninsula, Iceland?
    I rember my geography lessons from school or episodes on Nat Geo, but this is another level.
    My routine is to watch live stream on YouTube, have it running as wallpaper on my TV with loads of music in the background.. Symphonies, classical minimalistic tone poem, post rock and Brian Eno works very well as soundtracks to volcanic eruptions and lava flows.

    Sad that a person who spoke so furiously and emotionally about a genocide in Bosnia, supports another one being commited in Palestine.
    Even worse that it is being conducted by the ones who suffered the worst tragedy in the modern history.

    The hypocrisy.

    Umm, it always takes 2 for a fight and right now Hamas attacked so Israel has right to defend itself.

    Reply, yes. But would you really call that a proportionate answer to a situation? Also, please take a look at the land they occupied, people they've forced out of their homes and relocated. Not to mention the constant abuse and kilings of the Palestinian people. That is the definition of an ethnic cleansing.

    Note, Hamas is a weird one. Middle east is even more ****ed up than Balkan in more ways than imaginable. It's really hard for me to justify attrocities commited by Hamas, but you have to wonder what the mindset of the people there is like. They've literally been left alone to suffer.

    No one is without a mistake, but I just can not understand how someone can defend the actions of Israel over the past years.

    I mean from what I'm able to see in our media Hamas was targeting Israel in general, civilians included. Isreal just defended itself with their shield ( they are lucky that they have American support with technology) and in return attacked buildings where Hamas was.

    About being forced of the area or not, in the past Jews were forced out of this area by Arabs, it was their land. Is this situation any different than giving Trieste to Italy after 2nd World War? Not really, expect we are not idiotic enough to battle with each other for how ever many years.

    I wasn't talking about the Iron Dome. Please, go see a documentary where they go through Palestine, there are plenty. This is not the Iron Dome I'm talking about.

    And when did they steal the land from them (genuine question)? Vast majority of the Israel's population emigrated from other countries. They had no land there. You can't say we've lived here 1500 years ago and claim the land then.

    As far as Trieste considered, if I recall correctly, Italy was promised so much more than that, not with right, but I do get you. And don't they wish for their own independance?

    Iron dome is a reason why there are so few casualties on Isreal side compared to Palestine, that was my point. Palestine isn't a good guy here, it is just the worse equipped one of the two.

    As for when they took the land, apparently about 1000 years ago.
    Don't know why they couldn't take the land though, it is part of dividing of the land after 2nd world war. They were given the land from brits but arabs said no. And yeah, people emigrated but because they were forced from everywhere else, first Hitler and then all arab countries.

    You really seem to be following Newsmax or something. Hamas is not completely guilty free here, but saying the Israel is doing nothing wrong, I just don't know what to say. I don't know how can someone be blind to an ethnic cleansing.

    They were welcomed after being shipped from Europe and you call Arabs the land stealers. No point arguing here.

    And for the Arabs in Europe, no, they'll praise Israel for sure.

    Some 1000 years ago, sure, that's nothing, almost like it was yesterday. If you see someone returning to a place a 1000 years after their ancestors left, can you really claim land and property? Really?

    And saying Israel is only defending themselves, how is it 'defending' when you answer is literally tenfold devastating. How is it defending when you're occupying a soveregin territory, destroying existing homes and building new ones for the new settlers?

    You're butthurt about Triest but can't understand the struggles of Palestinians for loosing territory against their own will by the UN and UK.

    Ancestors didn't left, they were killed but sure. And after all, it is their holy land, however stupid I find this ideas, they were first there.

    It is defending, if they wanted to attack they could wipe Gaza out no problem, they have means. The casualties are on Hamas, they started and if they can't defend then though luck for them. You don't attack someone with a knife if you know they have kevlar vest and a gun.

    And how is screaming to bomb tel aviv and kill Jews and burning flags tolerated by the people who go on rampage if someone makes fun of their prophet is also unthinkable.

    They were first. Bro. Christians came 2000 years ago and muslims in this form 1300 years ago. Again, you're using concepts that don't whistand time.

    Israel fired more missiles in the past few days than they have since the start of the conflict, and your comment is tough luck? Was it tough love for Srebrenica as well? They attacked Serbian positions but they were better equiped so tough luck?

    Burning flags? I'll act as I haven't read that. What would your desperate call be, were you in such situation?

    They got this land in the war and that's it, Isreal has right to it now.

    Israel still fired less rockets than Hamas did in this days. That's all I have to say, I do wander if Hamas can be trusted when they report deaths.

    It really isn't the same as Srebrenica though.

    And yeah, protesters in Berlin, London an Paris really have right to be desperate, they really are so hurt because of this conflict, lol. They can go to palestine help with fights, no need to attack EU police forces and destroy our property.

    That's not how it works. There was no war. To have a war it needs to be both sided, this wasn't. It's just Israel military harassing and removing people from their properties so the Jews could settle. Again, you really don't seem to be investing time to see what's happening but bother commenting.

    It really does remind alot on Srebrenica. Maybe even more so on Prijedor or Bratunac.

    Of course they are hurt. Every sane person should be.

    And for the record, Slavs came to Balkan in 6th century at most, but more probably in the 7th. Does that justify the Illyrians to claim our land now?

    I read that and also some other articles. https://www.bbc.com/news/newsbeat-44124396

    I stand behind my words. And reading this: https://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-13331522
    it seems you are supporting terrorist organisation just like ISIS was. It seems like you see what you want to see and ignore what doesn't work for your views.

    They are not hurt and they have no right to destroy symbols or property. Or does that mean that after every terrorist attack we had in Europe we could go out to protest by burning muslim symbols and damaging mosques?

    And no they can't claim whole Balkan, they can get a part if they come back to say hi. Because Isreal isn't single place where Jews lived, and you probably know that.
