nur noch russische Geräte erlauben

March 11, 2007

und zwar die Firma PowerOnOff.

Einst größter Hersteller von Elektrogeräten ist diese Firma durch die aufstrebende schwedische Marke Ståndby fast völlig vom Markt verdrängt.

Ein erneutes Aufleben des sibirischen Industriekonglomerats bringt wahrscheinlich mehr als der neue australischeund deutsche Umweltmasochismus.
Auch das Designlabel “- o” stellt Geräte mit vollständiger Trennung vom Netz her.

Noch der kleine Populismustip an alle Politiker:
Ungeliebte Verbote möglichst früh in der Supplychain einbringen. Dann bekommt der Brüger die Auswirkungen nicht direkt zu spüren.


Steak and Knobber Day

March 10, 2007

S&BJDDoes anyone knows for sure when “Steak & Blowjob Day” or “Steak & Knobber Day” is?

The 14th March is mentioned quite often, though it might be the 20th March.
In Germany the same event is known as “Schnitzel und Blowjob Tag”, S&BJT. For that day the 20th March and the 24th March can be found throughout the web.

In one Bulletin Boar, Dave Rikkards from KGB radio show was claimed to be the founder of that event and going back to 1998.

Perhaps the “Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monste” could establish a fixed day?


self referring slashdot effekt

March 6, 2007

The german tech news Heise is known to cause much traffic, similar to the Slashdot effect. It’s called the heise-DoS, which is a slightly more precise description.

Today, they announced a relaunch of their software  directory and … boom! They DDoSed themselves. In common, the solutions presented by heise are  ugly, but reliable and working. Must be a real beaut, then.

Honestly, this is a pretty good reason.

worst deputyship on TV

February 28, 2007

My best wishes to Sandra Maischberger and her son.

It’s a pity what happend to that great political talk show this night.

Erich Böhme might be a good journalist and lead his own program quite well. But today he totally messed up.
He didn’t get to moderate  an easy discussion. The topic was very interesting, juvenile violence in stadions and on the street. The guests were mostly involved in youth work, on all sides. Among them a judge, a street worker, a principal and a former hooligan.

And what did the journalist do? He tried to have seven individual interviews, and even investigations instead of letting a diskussion come up.

Shame on you Erich Böhme.
The next stand -in will be done by a  forecaster, it can olny become better.
