The story of my life in China is here.
First day of the new semester, over a thousand freshmen and I had no problem getting a parking space. Wow.
Same wrong way, same traffic jam, but this time I took the right road back and only lost twenty minutes. So how could that happen again? I usually take the highway when driving home from university and the autobahn when I go to Munich. The problem is that they closed the highway due to road works and I have to take the autobahn in the other direction. Well, I’m not used to that, followed my habit and took the wrong ramp…. twice…. 🙄
I took the wrong way, landed in a traffic jam, behind an excavator, in the wrong part of the town and finally got back to where I had started thirty minutes before…
First day of the Symposium: Supersonic Business Jet ‘07. After lectures, workshops, discussions and many formulas and charts I know that companies, not sheiks, are our main customers. And that it’s not advisable to put the engines on top of the wings, at least not for supersonic flight.
Comment of a physics tutor when I picked up his colleague for a coffee break:
“You are not allowed to be here."
The good man doesn’t know that this was neither the first nor the last time I’ve been there.
Today I tried the Mighty Mouse. Odd design but the touch sensor buttons really work. At first I thought it would be some kind of touchpad but you can click it like any other mouse and it decides which click (right or left) to perform on whether you touch the left button or not. It’s very comfortable to use but lacks one important feature: mouse chording.
