Even Wilma enjoys the sun of the last days. What a great weather! By the way: Wilma is a 2,5 year old Chinemys reevesii.
I was in Bamberg the second half of last week to help my girlfriends mom moving into the new apartment. And since she has so many books it would be a great eye-catcher to just “stick” some of them on the wall. This invisible bookshelf is in stores for 18 euros. Which is… quite expensive for a bended piece of metal… but it looks so great.
Since my girlfriend has two turtles we wanted to check out the reptiles exhibition in Erfurt. Which we didn’t because, well lets call it disappointment in the first place.
To small. To dubious. Well… you get the idea. And 12 Euro for 1700 qm is quite a price…
Then we decided to take a walk in the old town of Erfurt. Where we found a new product…(sorry, german only joke)
Gooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooood morning my feathered friends!
The new semester starts today and I successfully introduced a new diurnal rythm. It’s quite hard to go to sleep at 12 PM when you did go at 5 AM the last months. But it worked. It’s 7:30 AM and I am awake, already showered and fit to start the day.
Even the sun is shining… a bit…
What a game! It’s one of the most relaxing games I’ve played in the last months… going to sleep now
How to Play?
What am I suppose to do?
Man, I was exhausted after one day – as usual. But after all it was a great day with many great talks. Even Promise listened to what I had to say… and that’s astonishing…
But since I had the chance to sneak behind the scenes at the Microsoft booth I want to present you a little bit of the pictures I just made…:
As if he wasn’t big enough I am here to tell you once again something about the statistics behind schrankmonster.de. There’s the obvious tendency upwards – and I intent it to go straight upward for the next years…
there’s a weblog ranking on blogscout.de – Of course this was one of the very good days ;)
I was playing a relaxing round of Marble Blast Ultra and my 360 hangs…
And after all the 360 isn’t hot in any way. The PSU is cold – even the fans are off – the 360s fans are in low-speed mode… But if I wait several minutes and boot then it will boot into the guide and even start games… but will hang after some minutes of playing…
I made a video to lighten up the situation:
P.S.: you can also download this video via the podcast link (see left)
I’ll talk to the support in a couple of hours…hopefully I get a replacement soon.
After several months bubblegum ran only with one of four possible cpus – mainly because I did not have the right voltage regulator modules for the P3 XEONs. But now I actually got some on eBay and today was the “will-it-work?”-day.
YES! It works. So one more to go…
average speed: 193,373239 km/h
top speed: 234 km/h
track length: 30,51 km
It’s my favourite car. And Sixt was so kind to offer me a “free ride”… this thing is awesome. Finally I got to drive one with compressor. Mercedes listen! I want one! Now!
For the launch day (yesterday!)…Visual Studio 2005, SQL Server 2005 and Biztalk 2006 launched…yeah!…So I got a Audi A4 for that trip… nice car…very nice car ;)
more this evening…
For gods sake why seem some people unable to use a phone? In 8 out of 10 cases when I call them, they just reject my call – calling me instantly back “Oh sorry, I must have pressed the wrong button”.
IT’S COLOR CODED! Green for GO Red for NO-GO.
Actually there are only TWO buttons on the phone that are enlighted. So how come that they almost always push the wrong one?
This week starts with some changes.
First you might have noticed the slightly different Design of this Weblog. Yeah I changed to a new Theme – originally designed by Jelle Druyts. Not only that it does look better in my opinion it also renders way faster than the old design.
Second change is that I’ve upgraded to the newest version of the software that runs this weblog.
I hope that this whole thing just works as expected – if you see anything that does not work as expected – please let me know.
It’s been some time since I made a picture of my workplace…and since that time one more display arrived… so here are two up-to-date pictures:
as usual from left to right: Mac mini (Samsung TFT 910T), custom P4 (Samsung TFT 910T+19″ Highscreen), HP compaq nc8000 (Belinea 108025, built-in 15″ TFT).
Yesterday the sixth keyboard I possessed just died – it was a keyboard from cherry – one with all those buttons on it that nobody seems to use. I never did actually… but now it’s gone and the “new” one was already waiting:
So you may say: This keyboard is more than 11 years old – that’s quite old… yeah! But it’s new!!
How comes that? I got my hands on a quite old IBM Netserver which worked for over 10 years for a company here…and this keyboard was attached to the machine. It even had a dirt cover attached and was not used for all the time… So it’s almost new. After all a real pleasure to code with this gadget.
There where some very very disappointing events the last week that made it hard to write and think anything…
But after all life’s getting back to normal. Actually I want to thank my friends for being there when it’s needed – That makes you the best friends one could have.
It’s not often that I decide to eventually consider to do a bike tour. But today such a eventuality occurred.
Cutcat, Namenlos, Phillip and myself thought it might be a good idea. But first we had to check my bike. And guess what: the bottom bracket is broken. Perfect!
I am curious what amount of money is necessary to fix the problem…
Since some days Google Maps has my university town (Ilmenau) available for searching and viewing… and when I found the place where I live… well I can see my car… it’s about 4 or something pixels … but well there it is…
