I migrated this blog to new blogger, that's why the link to my friends' blogs are missing. Will be repaired soon.

Hello, Hello, this is Berlin

(you have to crank up the gain to the maximum to hear anything, but it works...)


Since last thursday, train station from where I live is less than perfect, at least I can admire the romantic landscape while waiting.

More mindless vandalism

Improvements made to our ticket-machine on the train station. It's amazing how many idiots there are in the upper palatinate.

Result of preposterous vandalism

Destroyed glass-wall of a refuge at my local bus stop.

Ghost train.


If you want to register at the Student's Registry (which was sold for €85M to Holtzbrinck recently!) you are presented with this registration form. Up to now I assumed, that someone who graduated from university should be able to distinguish between surname (Nachname) and given name (Vorname) without further help?

integrated circuits and envelopes

We ordered samples from Analog Devices before christmas, today they arrived. We are happy about that, of course, but they arrived with a little exaggerated packaging. The two chips (one SO-8, the other a little bit smaller) came each in a piece of PVC tube (the SO-8) or SMD-reel, packed each in a antistatic bag and put in a seperate padded envelope, about A4-size.

Back in Hamburg

After a lovely breakfast I started doing shift in the bunker.
