    Papertrail Diary 2 The new .app domains became available this week and of course I was too slow to get papertrail.app. Too bad, but I already knew that I have to find another name at some point to prevent some trouble if I want to bring it to the App Store. I’ll try out some other ideas and see what sticks in my head. I still love the name - it would be perfect - but it’s too obvious for it to still be available.Read more…

    Welcome Welcome to kokodev.de! Yes this is yet another reboot of this site. No this is not a reboot-post. I’m not looking back, I’m pretty much also not looking forward.
