[DebConf] About Stars (Part III)

Joachim neither do I nor does he / she / it care. It's the attempt, that counts ;)

[DebConf] About stars...

Seems like I did a mistake in one of my last blog entry. Indeed you could see stars yesterday night. Well... let me rephrase that: You could see one star. Well... let me rephrase that: You could see one bright pixel in the sky.

Okay, one shiny little point in the whole sky isn't that much, but if you cheat a bit, that's quite good:

First you need to convince yourself, that it is indeed a star you are looking at (and not a satellite, or reflections from ISS). Than phone / irc / im / email / whatever your wife / husband / fiance / girlfriend / boyfriend / dog / cat / mother / whatever. Tell him / her / whatever to search for the brightest star he / she / it / whatever can find (it's easier if he / she / it / whatever is german, the german wikipedia has a picture how to find it).

Now you can imagine, you are looking both at the same star... that's not perfect, but nearly as good, as looking with him / her / it / whatever standing by your side in the sky :)

PS: No, looking at the moon doesn't count. That's to easy.

[DebConf] Why are people make holidays in the south?

The sun over here is burning down, as good as in the south... I heard of a couple of guys got sunburn on their very first day. AND: The sun is burning down quite longer than in the south!

This would be a very good place for holidays, if they could fix this bug...
