Returning from OSCON Vienna
I've just returned from my tree day trip to OSCON Vienna.
LINBIT took great care of me during my stay, and I enjoyed
it quite a lot.
The most obscure thing encountered during that trip was the word
Liftkarmiesen. Austrians have all these (to us Germans) ancient and
strange words in their variant of German. Anyway, it even took three native
Austrians until somebody actually knew what it was ;) If you're now curious,
try to research it on your own. It's related to curtains ;)
Photography at Vienna central cemetery
Apart from OSCON/LINBIT related stuff, I've also actually taken a couple of
hundred pictures (both digital and analog b/w) at Vienna's central cemetery,
Europe's largest cemetery with more than 3 million people being buried there.
I yet have to develop the films, and look into the 3+GB digital data. However,
I'm very confident that given the good light conditions and the amount of time
I spent at the cemetery, there should definitely be some really good pics...
Obtaining Asian Motorola EZX phones in Europe
A couple of days ago, I
was looking for a way to obtain Motorola Linux Smartphones in Europe, i.e.
those plenty of models that are not officially sold anywhere but China and
other areas of Asia.
I've now found a suitable importer specialized in importing Asian phones into
the European market. In case you're interested, feel free to contact me for
more details. The phones range between EUR 180 and EUR 300, but there's a
minimum order of five phones. I'll probably be ordering around early may.
