|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…|
|Of course, pictures like this only look impressive in person. Anyway, the firmware upgrade on my mobile seems to have made the pictures smaller…|
|I’ve been to CeBit on Friday (entry for which was gratiously offered by the DLR). Nothing terribly exciting, but the nice guys at the Sony-Ericsson customer service booth flashed a current firmware on my mobile (and I even got a brand new rechargable battery!). 😀
I also picked up Knoppix 3.4 and it seems that its creator, Klaus Knopper, is a genuinely nice guy.
|Finally got around to replacing the naked light-bulb in my room with something resembling a proper lamp-shade. Can you smell the excitement? 😉|
|Picked up my new (used) car yesterday – a silver Nissan Micra. Also got a new set of winter tires as it came with summer ones. So far it seems like a good fit for me. 😀|
|Started my job unexpectedly early (Tuesday) and I only got a web- (and all other sorts of) account(s) today. Seems interesting so far, actually went to Goettingen by train today to hear a talk, so it was quite an adventure.
This is my temporary office; to the left is a Linux-PC (or to make Mr. Stallmann happy, a GNU/Linux PC), and to the right a Unix-terminal. As it’s an office for two people, there’s an equivalent set-up on the other side of the room.
|[time-travelled post] This is the view from the DLR parking space near the building where I work onto the Braunschweig airport’s runways. The weather on the drive there from Hannover was abysmal (icy rain which froze up my wind-shield while driving), but I got here safely to start my first day of work – doing a PhD.|
|Windless… On the way to finalising the shopping for New Year’s…|
|This is (if I remember correctly) the first proper snow in Hannover. It is still quite warm though (> 0°C) and the snow is thus more reminiscent of a “slush puppy” than anything else. Melts quite quickly, too…|
|That is what happens when you have to help your parents refurbish some flat. And on the third day, he managed roll 3 spikes into / through his finger and nail… So the damage is actually on the other side. 😉|
|I had the idea of putting up a semi-random snapshot regularly. Unfortunately, not that much has been picture worthy recently. The weather is pretty drab, and I haven’t been anywhere exciting.
So, to start off with a bang (ahem), here’s my desktop!
Spot any or all the the following: el-cheapo DVD-player, Gamecube, coffee-cup with no coffee, auto-winding wristwatch that doesn’t autowind, Bluetooth headset, Griffin PowerMate, 5.1 amp, old-ish Sony Clié, two USB LED-displays, and various other stuff…
