Don't install the new supertux in experimental!
You might lose contact with your friends, your wife will leave you and you will get fired from your job. But you'll surely have a lot of fun ;)
Update: Due to licensing issues, supertux is curently shiped without
sound and music files, so it needs to be invoked with
--disable-sfx --disable-music from the commandline. Upstream is working

Erich mentioned a storm warning for Germany and the recommendation at his university to not do any lectures.
Well... Here in the north we have quite some wind blowing, believe me... the first time I actually saw roof tiles been blown off the roof. Makes you feel very comfortable when walking home ;)
Interesting: All universities in the neighbourhood have been closed and schools closed at 11:00am. Only we needed to stay till 7:00pm for our math course :(
Wish us luck: We live in a attic floor flat and already lost some roof tiles. And according to the forecast it might still become stronger...

... was in the unlucky situation to get a topic for a short talk assigned by his English teacher, he felt uncomfortable with.
Luckily he found some skilled IT people via a mailing list, who helped him regarding this topic.
The final version of his slides about the
the Windows operating system are more or less funny, so you might want
to take a look at them yourself.
No, I don't know why English teacher assign such topics.

by Alberto Yazquez-Figueroa:
Just finished it; couldn't stop reading it! Really worth to be read.
Tuareg is the story of a tuareg, a nomad in Africa. He's living a happy live in the Sahara dessert, respecting the traditions handed down from his fathers fathers.
His live is changed, when two strangers crossing the dessert stumble half
death in his camp. His honour is called into question, when soon after those
two strangers, who are in search of a
border, soldiers arrive and break
the most holy law handed to him from his fathers fathers: His hospitality.
This book is quite exciting. As said: I could hardly lay it away (and that happens not very often). The only negative thing I can say about this book: I dislike the ending. Really. My tip would be to read everything, but the last two chapters.
I saw on amazon, that there is a movie about this book, too. Anyone knows something about it? DVD cover doesn't looks promising, so I'm quite curious if the film is even half as good as the book.

... for the problems delivering your mail, Jordi. The failure you got came from my (old) backup mx. Don't know what the problem was, or why someone should phone him to deliver mails. My old ISP was some kind strange regarding spam...
However: I removed the backup mx. Sorry, that shouldn't have happened.
