Clapton live in Shanghai.

I don't remember the exact year, but it must have been at least four or five years ago. Billy Crystal was the host of the academy awards that year and a hilarious clip was shown before the show or as advertisement: Billy Crystal goes to the cinema, buys a popcorn, goes to his theatre, sits down, watches the commercials and as soon as the movie begins,…

Sympathy for Lady Vengeance?

Geez. What a woman! Daughter can rest after 10-year hunt A 25-year-old woman from Wanzhou in Chongqing Municipality has ended a 10-year search for the man who sold her mother and killed her father, delivering him to police custody in September. In 1992, Wang Wenlong, a farmer in Wanzhou, sold Chen Xia's mother to a farmer in Sheqi County, Henan Province. Chen and her father tracked…

My computer, my programs.

HDR 01 - My Desktop. Gotta clean it sometime...

Reading about other's people computer and software is always fun, so why shouldn't I share my system information and software with you? Maybe nothing in this entry is new to you, but maybe you'll find something you didn't know before. Maybe you recently switched to Mac system and you want to know about cool software? Who knows! Let's get started. This is my setup, as in the picture above: I got a Apple PowerBook G4 with 17" from 2005 (yeah, I don't have the money to witch to a new system every year...), additionally I got a 250 Gigabyte sized external hard-drive from Maxtor, a Mighty Mouse, a Logitech headset for Skype and Sharp stereo boxes - for music, what else! What I do? I create web-sites (for fun, mostly), edit images, create video pod-casts and lots more.

Boom Shakalaka.

Apple's new iPhone. Let's start saving!

Honeymoon in Europe!

Being 25 years old, you usually don't get a kick out of christmas anymore. Sure, it's nice to have that one special day that you can spend with your family, but let's be honest, it was way more fun when we were children and got presents and stuff. This year was completely different. My grandmother actually managed to bring together the whole family from one side…

The best soundtrack - ever.

Now that I have a digital SLR camera with the Nikon D50, my hard drive space slowly goes down. Having only 5 Gigabyte left this morning, it was reason enough for me to go through my iTunes library to kick out albums I don't ever listen to anymore. That's always fun, because you are going to find so many albums that you didn't even remember anymore…

I am a flick addict.

My passion for movies started back in the December of 1986. At the age of four, my dad took me to see Disney's The Great Mouse Detective in a cinema. Seeing an animated mouse on a big screen was more then fun, it was a groundbreaking experience for me. I became a flick addict that day. When I was eight, my dad bought a mini-VHS Camcorder,…

Tam tam tamtam! Wir sind vom Markt!

Es hat tatsächlich geklappt. Alles ging gut, wenn auch mit kleinen Hindernissen. Wir sind im Hafen der Ehe angekommen! Am Montag morgen standen wir (nicht wirklich pünktlich) um kurz vor 10 im Büro für die Eheschliessung in Xi'An. Leider ging das Internet dort nicht, so dass wir zwar tapfer alle Blätter ausfüllten, unseren "Ehepass" aber noch nicht bekamen. Also kehrten wir vier Stunden später wieder zurück…

Heiraten ist stressig!

Da ich noch in Deutschland gemeldet bin, brauche ich einen Auszug aus dem Melderegister in meiner Stadt (Eltern mit Vollmacht hin), dann muss ich mit diesem Auszug zur deutschen Botschaft in Shanghai und diesen begläubigen lassen. Dann muss ich den Auszug mitsamt der Begläubigung zu einem staatlich anerkannten Übersetzungsbüro schicken und ins chinesische übersetzten lassen. Eine Seite übersetzten zu lassen kostet zwar nur 10 Euro, dauert…
