Windows 7: Today [9]

Windows 8 - 64-bit

What's the saying ... " You love to see the headlights arriving with the children.. more happy to see the the tail-lights when they are leaving with the children. ".. I know that feeling is what my Sis says.

It's small things that matter!

Have to stay whole week in my work apartment in Erfurt, working days this week simply too long to drive back and forth every day. Anyway, going home on Thursday.

Wanted to say good night to Angie. Made a small batch file that played a PP presentation showing some nice pics from my / her last birthday, playing "our" song in the background. After this 5 minutes presentation an image of me and simple text "Gute Nacht, Angie!" (Good Night, Angie) in full screen, staying there.

Took remote connection to our home server, uploaded this batch with images and music, called Angie asking her to check something on my desk so I knew she's there, seeing the display. Said good night, put phone down and woke up the display on my desk running the batch.

I was sure she could see the display. I was not prepared in her reaction.

I have just received so loving, caring, full of emotions phone call from my dear wife it made my heart ache. She thanked me telling this was a gift only a geek could give! What a compliment :)! (No, I'm not crying. I just got something in my eyes!)

You geeks have no idea how much I love her!

Screenshot from my work PC showing the remote desktop of my home server when batch was finished:

That sounds wonderful Kari, such a thoughtful thing to do while you are apart I'm so glad she appreciated it. I'm so pleased you are both still hanging in there together you've had a rough time over the last few months I'm sure this has made you both stronger. :)

Thanks, Joan.

Although only 160 kilometers (100 miles) from door to door, I stay here in my work apartment two or three nights a week. The Autobahn here between Erfurt and Leipzig is almost all the way no speed limit so I need only an hour and 20 minutes a coffee break included to drive it but even that feels too much when I work from eight to eight.

It also gives both of us some time for ourselves. Surprisingly, we both are quite happy with this arrangement and much more happier when together. In any case I still sleep most of the nights home.

I am so profoundly, extremely happy I have found this woman. Angelika (Angie) is the one I always knew is there waiting for me; I did not know how she looks or from what part of the world she comes or what language she speaks but I have always known she exists and I was sure I recognize her when we meet. Luckily I was right. She is a dream come true for me.

You're quite the romantic Kari. Perhaps you should be a poet

Correct. Voting in Australia has always been compulsory for adults 18+.

We have the 'right' to not put in a ballot paper. But we have to have our names ticked off to earn that right

It was only a month ago we had to vote for another section of government.

I'd be more inclined to vote if rather than just selecting 'the representatives' that purportedly 'represent' the people, they also added a few yes/no 'big issue' topics that truly reflect what the people want.

I just sat a maths exam from the Uni of Melbourne. There was 7 questions, 3 hours and no calculators allowed. It was extremely difficult; I'll be happy if I get 1 right!
