This site is a brain fart created by Jannis, Alain, Riccardo and Thomas. The idea is fully copied from Podiumcafé's VDS site. It wasn't created with love & coffee like the usual websites because Jannis and Riccardo don't like coffee at all. Maybe that's the reason why they are so slow bugfixers and it took forever to develop the site (lost three days of my life). Thomas focused on internet research on different platforms like Youtube, Twitch etc. while the others were working, which might also have had an influence on our productivity. Riccardo thought about the point system and was taking a Zuckerstössli every now and then. Basically, the only one who did anything useful was Jannis, and we should be very thankful that he worked so hard for this instead of studying. What an effort, many wows!
Like every project, this project will develop in the upcoming months. If you read this and we have discontinoued our work/communication on this site || twitter, contact us asap via an e-mail to this address. Thanks, you're the best!

What about Alain, you ask? I saw Alain at a grocery store in Zurich yesterday. I told him how cool it was to meet him in person, but I didn’t want to be a douche and bother him and ask him for photos or anything. He said, “Oh, like you’re doing now?”
I was taken aback, and all I could say was “Huh?” but he kept cutting me off and going “huh? huh? huh?” and closing his hand shut in front of my face. I walked away and continued with my shopping, and I heard him chuckle as I walked off. When I came to pay for my stuff up front I saw him trying to walk out the doors with like fifteen Milky Ways in his hands without paying.
The girl at the counter was very nice about it and professional, and was like “Sir, you need to pay for those first.” At first he kept pretending to be tired and not hear her, but eventually turned back around and brought them to the counter.
When she took one of the bars and started scanning it multiple times, he stopped her and told her to scan them each individually “to prevent any electrical infetterence,” and then turned around and winked at me. I don’t even think that’s a word. After she scanned each bar and put them in a bag and started to say the price, he kept interrupting her by yawning really loudly.
