I've made some great friends while here in Pforzheim, tonight was one of those nights that really show it. Thanks to Timmy and G. Peter for helping me out after my Vitara exploded. Next round on me.

Fucking Vitara piece of shit!...

Some other notes and such from around the web:

This is cool, slide the "heat map" scroll bar to show where the majority of "eye time" by readers are for this particular New York Times web article. Interesting to also see which advertisements got the most "eye time".

A great idea, Timex (the watch company) put on a competition for conceptual ideas on their products. The resulting entries can be seen here, the results however, customer participation, awareness and promotion are priceless.

For my geek peeps back in Waterloo Mathematics, the 20 "greatest" formula's.


From a news article:

"Italian politician Rocco Buttiglione, who angered European MPs with his comments on homosexuals, has inflamed the already bitter fight over his appointment as Europe's next Security and Justice Commissioner with his criticism of single mothers. Mr. Buttiglione told a conference on the role of the family that children who had only a mother and no father were "the children of a not very good mother." Equally, children who had only a father and no mother could only be "robots." Mr. Buttiglione has already been blackballed by the European Parliament's civil liberties committee, of which he was once briefly a member, for saying homosexuals are sinners and women should stay at home and breed"

How is this guy still in power?? It's almost humourous how ignorant this guy is.


A new form of alcohol awareness?

"A British firm will next month become the first major brewer in the world to put general health warnings on beer bottles." ... "The warnings will be headed "UK Alcohol Units'' and contain a message saying: "Responsible drinkers don't exceed three to four units a day for men, two to three for women.'' The warnings will be prominent, and also say how many units of alcohol the can or bottle contains, typically about two units for a can of lager."

Is it only me, but I see a whole new sport emerging, on Monday I scored about 32 beer points, did anyone else beat me? :-)

And finally a great quote from Ida Scott Taylor:

"One day at a time — this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past, for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful that it will be worth remembering."
