Trouble waking up?

If yes, then the MIT guys might have a solution for you: Clocky.

If you tend to hit the sleep button on your clock, this one will roll away and “hide” somewhere. Then, when it rings the next time, you first have to get out of bed and locate it before you can shut it off again.

A moving week

Yesterday I went to a good friend, and the first thing she mentioned was how happy I looked. Well, if she would have seen me last monday or tuesday it actually might have been true. But since then so many things crossed my way, that I cannot feel good at the moment. It all started with a weird wednesday morning.

Then on thursday something foreseen happened, which I hoped would not happen that soon. Note: It’s totally unimportant how prepared you think you are for something – it will get you.

Friday morning then was, different. I realized what happened on thursday and because of that I had the most haunting moment I ever had. But that evening things suddenly turned the other way. I’m still trying to make a sense of all that.

“Fixed-Gear Bikes an Urban Fixture”

Bikes without brakes and a fixed gear. Sounds -ehm- interesting: “Instead of looking a car or two ahead of you, you have to look three to four blocks down the road and have to scan left to right constantly to look for escape routes.”

Random Quote Of The Day

“The major difference between a thing that might go wrong and a thing that cannot possibly go wrong is that when a thing that cannot possibly go wrong goes wrong it usually turns out to be impossible to get at or repair.”
– Douglas Adams, “Mostly Harmless”

How sad is this?

A homeless guy with his PC (not Notebook!) literally living in a NYC Starbucks: linkie. Reading the first comments on that site, it looks like he has left… I hope it’s just an April 1st joke.

Update: For the two lj-people 😉 reading this, I don’t get any notification about comments on the lj-site. But you could comment on my website, then I’ll see it… 🙂

Staying in D…

I’m not in the mood for a drive-home this weekend. I’ll stay here over the weekend. My flat-mate is out of town, so it’ll be a really relaxing weekend. Not that it wouldn’t be with her around. 🙂

I’m just waiting for a reply from the nice person, who got me this flat here. Haven’t heard from since almost a week…

Work-wise: I’m staying up in the crowded area, it’s just better with people around… 🙂
