“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… 🙂


I don’t know what the weather is like where you are, but since yesterday it looks like spring has arrived! My guess at todays’ temperature: at least 15° C.

To quote a colleague from today, eh, it’s yesterday already: “Von der Winterdepression ohne Umwege direkt in die Frühjahrsmüdigkeit”. 😉 And that’s how I’m feeling the last few days: Totally tired, and I bet this morning won’t be better. So I better go to bed 🙂 G’night everyone…
