In the German Rhineland, six further villages are planned to be destroyed to expand the largest coal mine of Europe. This is absurd. Today we visited those defending the villages and fighting for the coal to stay in the ground. We are standing with you. #AlleDörferBleiben

Happy and release day. Now would be a good time to turn on content caching if you have the option to do it and more than one device to update. Think of all of the app updates coming.

Having too much fun writing filter code for IFTTT applets.
