Keine Rheinkultur 2012
Schade :-( Die Pressemitteilung von November ist bei mir bisher unter dem Radar durchgetaucht. Dafür hätte ich wie immer einen ziemlichen Umweg in Kauf genommen.

51st State
So far I've successfully avoided traveling through the UK on business trips. Looks like I should avoid France as well (be patient, watch the end): While it would have been possible to see Peter Gabriel's tour New Blood (Orchestra, No Drums, No ...

The grass is always greener on the other side.
So, here I am, finally returning to Europe. I hope it was the right decision. Things I won't be getting now are practicing my Mandarin with native speakers, or good weather and beaches for most part of the year. I've also not taken the opportunity to get ...

Horses on the road in Pune, India
Horses on the road These guys were galloping down the road among the traffic in Pune, India. I didn't even notice that there were two, until reviewing the pictures just now. All in all TECS Week at Tata was fun, I met a lot of motivated students ...

Seeing Manu Chao, or getting killed trying?
Manu Chao and band in Rio! On the night of the ICFEM'09 conference dinner, and more surprisingly, right around the corner---of both the dinner and my hotel (sometimes you have to win). It's not sold out (surprise?), but I guess I'll wait until I get to ...

Will someone think of the secretaries!
Lufthansa states that: For your security, you will in future need your Miles & More PIN to book an upgrade to a higher class of travel at the airport. Oh, the joy, I can already see everybody digging out their laptops and burning 10 EUR on UMTS ...

Spontaneous combustion

A day in the Forbidden City
  Electronic guide at the Forbidden City in Beijing, before and after (4 1/2h later). Red dots show places I haven't been. But I'm sure I hit one or two of the places without the guide kicking in. It seems to be using GPS or some other trigger. For ...

Going to Kuala Lumpur for the weekend
Tomorrow we'll be leaving for a few nights in Kuala Lumpur. The weather forecast suggests rubber boots, but we'll see... Hopefully we'll be able to hook up with Zuzana and her friend whom we met on Mt. Kinabalu last year.

A hole in the Great Firewall of China
IP adresses slightly obfuscated to give the local hackers a chance. I guess sooner or later the admins will catch up and plug that hole as well. I was pleasantly surprised, +1 for IPv6 by default -- thanks Apple :). traceroute6 to mail.foldr.org ...

Heimaturlaub
Wo Eric mich gerade dran erinnert: bin vom 21.12. - 9.1. in der Heimat, aber dank Winterurlaub und Festlichkeiten die meiste Zeite schon verplant. Urgs, ist ja schlimmer als eine Konferenz :) Vorher gehts aber erstmal in die andere Richtung, nämlich für ...
