The site may be down soon-ish as I’m moving hosts (or at least trying to… My old (current) host Strato does not seem to be cooperating as much as one would hope).
|At the hotel were some of my colleagues and I play squash (which doesn’t kill my joints as much as it used to after I had gotten proper shoes) we found this “septocycle”. Didn’t know things like that existed…|
If you’re looking for a (properly) scary movie, I can very much recommend the new “Dawn of the Dead”. I’ve also seen “Hellboy” and found it to be well-entertaining, but as I have never seen the comics I cannot really comment on the conversion.

Today, I moved offices again to what will (hopefully) be my permanent one. I am sharing it with Gunnar who is a well-travelled bloke originally from Iceland.
After the easter holidays, I took 4 days off but then used most of those to refurbish the ceiling in a flat in Hannover. That didn’t stop me from picking up a new toy: a Sony Clie UX-50 Palm PDA. Having owned a Palm before (Sony’s first, the Clie PEG-S300 IIRC), the transition was easier for me than for Alex and Patrick who have only used Pocket PCs before. It is a very nice machine, good (bright) screen, surprisingly usable keyboard, bluetooth and wireless LAN (which eats up the battery rather quickly).
After it had been in (and gone from) the back of my mind for some time, I have finally managed to see “Bubba Ho-Tep”. It’s a comedy, a film about old age, and it’s all good. And it’s got Bruce Campbell as Elvis in it.
Recommended (although the whole premise sounds majorly weird and confusing).
When I went to town (in Braunschweig this time) on Friday, I also remembered to buy some proper indoor sports / squash shoes. After having tried them yesterday, I can say the difference is like night and day. Not that I’m playing any better… :p
Lesson learned: Get proper shoes. Your joints will thank you!
Picked up “The Twin Snakes” and “Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow” on Friday. Been mostly playing SC:PT as that had me dying slightly less often (or more accurately it took longer to get from the last checkpoint to the place where I usually died so that subconsciously it felt like I was dying less), but TTS also looks nice and still retains most of its slickness.
I haven’t gotten around to trying SC:PT online, which supposedly is very good (in spite of the glaring quickmatch bug).
