About Me

18.02.2021: Snow is gone and mail should be back to normal again.

09.02.2021: Still no mail delivery and no public transport due to the snow. Not sure if mailboxes are cleared...

08.02.2021: Dropped some postcards in the mailbox today but am not sure if the mailboxes are cleared. Today we had no public transport and mail wasn't delivered due to the snow. Most of my colleagues didn't come to work as the driving conditions were terrible - and still are...

09.01.2021: Back but deleted most of my profile. Due to lots of returning flakers with second, third or even more accounts and an admin who obviously doesn't really care, swapping isn't that fun anymore. I really loved profile based package swaps and pocket letter swaps, but it takes too much time to vet the swaps if you don't want to risk to have to send many angel swaps. I know there are many hosts who don't care if the swappers in their swaps get flaked on because swapping should be fun. But it's no fun when flakers can return and flake again with new profiles or scammers flake on many people because others rate 5s with hearts for swaps that have never been sent. I think I'll still do some postcard swaps, but mainly I'll swap on postcrossing again.

22.12.2020: Will be off for some days. Need some time to free my mind.
Colleague tried to commit suicide yesterday at the office. It was a very strange atmosphere today as nobody can understand how it came to that.

Second complete lockdown starting from Dec 16 with most stores closed...

Germany is going into another partial shutdown starting on November 2nd. All stores stay open. No restrictions for the postal system, it shouldn't be affected, but who knows... I moved all swaps to the watchlist and will decide on the sign-up-deadline if i can join.
