First Pictures

Yesterday (and today) we had beautiful weather. Though I only have mobile phone pictures, they are not that bad.
The Canal, not far from our house.

The house we'll be living in for a year.

I had to come all the way to the UK and turn almost 23 to find out what the sign on the left picture at the bottom means. Finally! I never could figure out what the industry meant with that sign.

My tidy closet containing all I could take with me (concerning the clothes).

On Thursday we've been in Central London, meeting with colleagues of Dominik. The trip in the city is always long and one should always have a book at hand.
I have to go now. Sunny greetings from the UK! (A big SORRY for the crappy layout, I have not time to fix this right now.)

I am finally sitting at a computer, where no clock is ticking and I have enough time to do some proper update on my blog.
Arriving at Heathrow was easy, but getting my luggage was a big problem, somehow. They lost a container, in which my big suitcase was and so I had to fill in a form that my luggage is missing. Shortly after that they found the container. With 1.5 hours delay we finally arrived at the house.
Our new home is pretty nice, our room is bigger than expected and the location is good. The weather is very british, the last time I saw a blue sky was during the flight.
On Monday I did the job thing (going to Jobcentre Plus). I had to phone some centre, after about 40 minutes she had all the information and I got it in my mail the next day (!!!). My appointment with some guy is on Tuesday.
We do not yet have desks or chairs and I do not have my own display, but a keyboard and a mouse. Nothing special was happening because we mostly did some shopping to get the most important things, which we could easily transport home.
I do not feel at home yet and I am not yet sure ...
I need something to do here, e.g. work.

Douglas Adams

I recently started to read The Salmon of Doubt, the last book published from Douglas Adams. It contains interesting pieces he wrote during his sadly too short career for magazines and such. Adams is one of the original founders of the h2g2 homepage. I just visited it for the first time. I will have to take a deep look inside it. If you read all the other books from him, The Salmon of Doubt is the perfect dessert.

Back in 1971, Douglas lay drunk in a field in Innsbruck, Austria, thinking about the galaxy and how you might find your way around it. His solution, the 'Guide', was an ingenious device that offered advice about almost any place, object, entity or event you might care to name - all at the convenience of your fingertips. This vision is now approaching reality on the Internet [...].
