[DebConf] Met Seppy

Finally managed to meet with Dennis Stampfer, while he had his foilstickers and while I had money:

my iBook with some

Sadly, he hadn't one of his small swirls, which would have fit better in the apple :(

[DebConf] I see an upcoming problem...

I just tried to imagine the following: After two weeks vacation to attend an important conference I report back to my boss and we will have a conversation like the following: "You were at a conference?" - "Yes, I was..." - "And you were quite busy doing important stuff?" - "Yes, I finished some goals and talked to..." - "In Finland you said?" - "Yes, we..." - "So where did you got your sunburn?"

[DebConf] About stars (Part IV)

Thanks Jo for showing me, that you can indeed many more than one star during summer in Finland. You spoiled a nearly perfect way, to feel myself nearer to a very special person.

Let me guess: You are still single, aren't you? ;)

[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.
