Simple - Advanced

There is a nice driver for Windows, called asio4all that makes normal sound-cards accessible to professional audio software expecting a ASIO driver. Its configuration dialog uses the buttons shown on the left to switch from the advanced to the simple view.

Repairing a headset...

then the baby starts crying...

Shift, what mince?

Yesterday a colleague had her PhD examination. Afterwards a small party was held, the buffet of which had this nice mince-hedgehog. I have been told by gajo-simpatico that this kind of food presentation was hugely pouplar in the 50s.

Mielke 2.0

I added that nice looking Portrait of our minister of the interior to this blog. German readers might want to inform themselves on my motives to do so at the following websites:
  •, primarily against the storage of communication relevant data without any suspicion of a crime. They have T-Shirts...
  •, discussing the plans of said minister to let the police break into your computer to plant false evidence create security leaks fight terrorism, of course. (this has been done since 2005, apparently with little to no success, but of course, this does not stop him from demanding more of it, even though the highest german court has ruled the methods unconstitutional)
Now back to the usual programme of posting silli pictures.
