Moving the domain

Since I am not in Germany anymore but in Switzerland, I changed the domain. Now, whenever you type in “”, you will be redirected to “”, which, literally translated, means something like “nice domain”.

Calendar updated again.

I recently updated the calendar with all the dates that could already be seen for 2016. I also added a list of annual events and when they approximately are, so you can directly see if there is something even if I didn't update the calendar.

Check out the calendar!

Calendar updated

Just for the records: I just updated the calendar. I hope I caught all important dates from 2016 which are already settled.

Accelerating Skylake 2D graphics

I recently upgraded my PC to a Skylake i5 (Core i5 6400), which has the new Intel graphics. However, 2D graphics was extremely slow on my 4k monitor. When I wanted to play a small webm, I could be sure Firefox would freeze; switching applications always took half a second. However, switching the acceleration method of the Intel driver from UXA (which was loaded according to Xorg.0.log) to SNA fixed that.

The following content for the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf fixed the issue:

Section "Device"
        Identifier "Intel Graphics"
        Driver "intel"
        Option "DRI" "3"
        Option "AccelMethod" "sna"

I'm back!

The message with the master thesis was there for quite a long time, and is outdated for several months now. Lots of things changed in my life, but I'm happy I'll finally have some time. A new markdowku release is on the way (to work on PHP 7), and more things are about to come. The calendar must be updated, etc.
