Generally, it’s called a hiatus in Blogese. Despite temperatures of over 30°C (or maybe because of the ozone pollution levels caused by the heat) I managed to catch what is called Sommergrippe in German — summer flu. It hit me pretty fiercely (I’m still coughing), and I can’t blog when my mind is feverish and I’m half asleep anyway. There’s a lot of blogging material in store, though. We’ll all see how it goes.
Meanwhile, and on popular request, here’s a little number I cobbled together to teach myself Python. Careful, it’s not for the easily offended. You have been warned.
