you just should go home. I tried to help cleaning up after this years winter party, being quite intoxicated (still being intoxicated while posting this, so sorry for the spelling).

While I tried to lower one of the speakers from its stand, I moved a cable, which resulted in a lamp tipping over, falling down, hitting the bar, catapulting one of the candles on the bar into the air, which spilled liquid wax all over a friend of mine. While this might look like a comedy, all his outer clothing was full of wax and most probably can only be used in hard weather conditions as a wax jacket again, he also got some of the wax in his face which is as far from funny as you can get. Thank got he did not have any major injuries (at least none were discoverd up to now)... Hope he is alright...

So: Lesson for today: when drunk - leave.

Scientific Progress goes Boink

Well, another week nearly over. Nothing done for science, done a little for the car, done something for the party tomorrow, done some politics (well, sitting in a meeting), done nothing in special...

Just another week.

Todessturm tobt über Deutschland

Fest wie unsere Eichen halten alle Zeit wir stand,
wenn Stürme brausen übers Deutsche Vaterland.
Wir sind die Niedersachsen, sturmfest und erdverwachsen.

Wer es auch noch hören will: mp3s gibts hier, nehmt die Variante von Herbie G.

State of mind

It seems that I am entering the writing up phase of my thesis. My flat gets cleaner everyday, without me remembering of cleaning it up on purpose. The same already happened during my diploma thesis. You just start cleaning, to not need to write...

Engine Block

Engine Block

Successful week: I managed to seperate the engine head off the motor block of my DKW, cleaned out all the rust and dirt. It looks like it needs a bit of honing and some cleaning, but else it looks usable again.

I also managed to make two plots for my thesis and to copy a couple of pages into my thesis taken from an old report.
