Yes, this morning at 07:20 there was a big truck in front of our house and two big, sweaty bloakes carried our new washing machine into the appartment, and even took the old one away :-)

It is aPrivileg ProComfort 86206 ... ok, and looks like this:

Moving

Saturday : 22 Apr '06 - 08:14 | damen default No comments yet | Wikipedia

Today Manu will move over with the latter 20% of her stuff, like furniture, cooking equipment and so on. So for that her parents are coming over with a smaal trailer so that we can bring the big items over easily. Furthermore there are some boxes, but all quite overseeable. The biggest problem is still the part after the moving, because then we have to find a way to store all that stuff somewhere in out small appartment....

Photo's will follow as usual :-)

Working again

Tuesday : 18 Apr '06 - 08:59 | damen default two comments, already | Wikipedia

Hmmm, not amused... after four relaxed days I have to go to work again today. Luckily it is a slow start, because this morning I had to bring my parents to the trainstation, which is a good excuse to show up at work later. But then the reality will strike me hard :-( Fortunately this evening, I don't have to clean anything, because we have the first visit of our new cleaning lady ;-) Now that's what I call a good start afterall...

edit: Yes, She is from eastern Europe, why do you ask?

Easter Wells

Monday : 17 Apr '06 - 11:33 | damen default No comments yet | Wikipedia

This afternoon we will visit the Brauerei Meister for a Beer and Karpfen, and after that we will search for a nice Easter Well, which is an old tradition here in Franconia. They pimp their wells in order to celebrate that they have one, because Franconia is quite a dry area.

New Phone

Monday : 17 Apr '06 - 09:14 | damen default No comments yet | Wikipedia

I just ordered my new phone, this time it´s really a cool one with windows mobile 2.0 and all the gadgets one needs (WiFi, Bluetooth, IrDa, GPRS, ...)

The O2 Xda Neo


Now I have to find all the stuff I need to enhance it, like docking station, 1Gb SD Card, Bluetooth GPS Reciever etc. :-)

Working in IT not healthy?

Sunday : 16 Apr '06 - 20:31 | damen default No comments yet | Wikipedia

Take a look at this (german) report, which states that working in the IT-Sector is not healthy at all:

People working in the IT have a four times higher risk for chronical tiredness, sleeping problems etc...

I guess becoming a diving instructor was a good idea afterall ;-)

Install Party :-)

Sunday : 16 Apr '06 - 20:28 | damen default No comments yet | Wikipedia

At the moment I am installing all of the software on my computer again, because it had turned so slow that is was not good for working anymore. But man, if you check all that you have you first realize how much software there is and what kind of work it is to install it all again.

perhaps a ghost image wouldn't be such a bad idea :-0

Nare Duitsers (2)

Saturday : 15 Apr '06 - 23:30 | damen default No comments yet | Wikipedia

Dus, vanochtend stond er dus een grote tankwagen voor de deur en we hebben sinds 12 uur vandaag weer warm water. Ok, het gaf wel een beetje thailand-vakantie-gevoel als je met een grote pan warm water en een steelpannetje je onder de dousche staat we wassen, maar optimaal is het niet. Hebben we ook weer achter de rug.... grmbl en nare duitsers blijven het ;-)

Nare Duitsers

yesterday evening it was kind of chilly in the apartment and somehow the heating was not on... suddenly the door bell rang and our landlady was standing outside, telling us that the heating oil hat gone out, she was very sorry, but could not do anything. So now we don't have heating and warm water till tomorrow, because due to the holiday today even the emergency service (!!) is not allowed to deliver...

aaaarg, nare duitsers hoch 3

Karpfen essen

Thursday : 13 Apr '06 - 21:03 | damen default No comments yet | Wikipedia

Komende maandag gaan we, samen met mijn ouders, naar Brouwerij Meister in de fränkische Schweiz. Als je de commentaren zo moet geloven ist het een van de beste bieren ter wereld, en dat is natuurlijk een heel goede begeleider van een lekkere blaue of gebakken karper :-)

Brouwerij Meister in Unterzaunsbach


Jaja, ok, als het moet

Wednesday : 12 Apr '06 - 08:33 | damen default five comments, already | Wikipedia

Dus.

Hier een fotootje van het apparaat, maar ik moet eerlijk zeggen dat ik nog niet helemaal tevreden ben omdat het laagje schuim dat hij maakt duidelijk slechter is dan de vorige.. Dus ik geloof dat we dit weekend maar even een test moeten doen en mischien dan toch nadenken over een andere. Maar goed, voor 15€ op de rommelmarkt mag je natuurlijk niet echt veel verwachten.

Hij doet het wel, maar het is duidelijk geen Jura ;-P

DITA

Monday : 10 Apr '06 - 18:54 | damen default No comments yet | Wikipedia

At the moment I am working on stuff concerning the Darwin Information Typing Architecture. It sounds pretty impressive, but is in fact just a definition of XML in order to exchange Information easily..... ok, that does not interest you, so what!

The espresso maker is dead, long live the espresso maker

After almost four years of dedicated duty my small 50euro espresso maker decided to pass away today... :-( :-( :-( :-(

Luckily I was able to buy a new one at a small market today :-)

Spring cleaning

Saturday : 08 Apr '06 - 13:01 | damen default Only one comment | Wikipedia

This day we are very busy cleaning the whole appartment. Especially since Manu moved in that aspect of live has become a little bit more important ;-) Things that I am suprised about is how many small bottles of creme etc are appearing in the bathroom, somehow one showergel does not do the trick anymore ;-)

Furthermore we are enjoying the wunderfull weather today, it is sunny and warm, so we will spend the better part of the afternoon at a cafe in the city...

enjoy your day!
