Today I drove from home 1 to home 2, from Leipzig in eastern Germany to Solingen in western Germany. Terrible traffic, almost impossible to drive. Normally I need about 3 hours 40 minutes to drive here, 510 km (320 miles), including a 30 minute stop to have a coffee, few cigarettes and some fuel (almost all the way no speed limits), but today it took almost 4 and half hours, making the average speed only 120 kmph (about 75 mph). Not good, I hate to drive so slow.
Came here, only to find out that my system had crashed, server and router were off, so I could not login to my VPN even with my laptop. Been fighting with that the last half an hour, finally found out that a fuse had burned out (old house, old electrical systems). New fuse, and I'm back online.
One meeting tomorrow, Thursday back home.
Life is about as good as it can be. It's 24 degrees Celsius (about 75 degrees Fahrenheit), sunny evening, I'm sitting in the garden of my favorite pub with a laptop, having a nice glass of Laphroiag and some "Altbier", traditional German dark beer.
