I also bought myself Tetris Party Deluxe for my Nintendo DSi XL and I also got myself a web cam. It was in Sainsbury's and on sale it's a Logitech Webcam C120, I got it for £8.
Mind you don't even know if any of my friends have one so I can use it
PM me if you like Joan and I can test your new webcam with you sometime

A meaningless, small step for mankind, a gigantic leap for me, possibly dangerous for pedestrians in the state of Saxony and city of Leipzig: I'm getting my driver's license back today! My neurologist gave green light last week, I should once again be capable to control myself enough to drive, after six months break.

Life is good, Angie is beautiful, Mac OSX sux!

Where I live in Cornwall we are noted for our slow careful approach to life. We invented words like "I'll do that dreckly" Which means "I'll do that maybe tomorrow or the next day, if it's a nice day" We also have a lovely saying "Go along quietly" and "Take it step be step"
Follow the Cornish way and you will succeed. It's never easy and you need to be aware all the time. Don't falter, struggle on, it gets better as time passes. Be proud of your achievement so far.
I wish you great success!

I guess all those driving lessons with Carl and Gracie really helped!


All jokes aside, congrats Kari.

Thanks geeks! It's incredible fun to be able to drive again. Took a short test drive already, just about 35 kilometers up the Autobahn direction Berlin, filled the tank in a service area and drove back. Was really careful, didn't exceed 170 km/h although I wanted to (this A9 Autobahn has mostly no speed limit).

I promised to Angie I'm taking it easy, first speed tests during a visit to Berlin this coming weekend. Even then it's not going to be too fast driving; we have still winter tyres in cars and it's not allowed to drive over 210 km/h with them, as the obligatory sticker reminds me:

210km/h that's nearly twice the maximum speed in the UK whether summer or winter!!!!!

Here's still quite a lot Autobahn without speed limits, you can drive as fast as your car is capable to go. For instance the Berlin Ring (Berliner Ring) A10, the ring road around Berlin is 170 kilometers (105 miles) from our house door; to that distance we normally need 55 to 60 minutes.

The problem now, still a few weeks, is the law that says you have to use winter tyres. The law itself says nothing about exceeding 210 km/h with winter tyres but if something happens and it can be proven you drove faster, no insurance is compensating the damage. So, it's more safe and simple to keep the speed during winter time under the 210 km/h.

But, believe me: it's a really fabulous feeling to accelerate to over 200 km/h, press the cruise control and enjoy!
