Holiday Project

Holiday Project: Turning an antique phone into a USB headset

I just got this antique phone (probably built 1927) off ebay. It's interior is really torn, the outside definetely needs some paint-job and some serious polishing on the metal parts.

My plan is to marry this phone with a cheapo USB headset and then use it for skype :-) More pictures and a description what I did soon here :-)

Footnotes in history

So, the big success in Bali is a footnote with a reference (including a PAGE NUMBER!) to a formerly agreed document, which states that a lowering of about 25-40% in CO2 emissions might eventually prevent the planet going boink (of course we know, it is, just like evolution or the bible, just a theory).

We are all safe now. Birds sing, peace on earth will begin soon, and wolve and deer live nicely together. And if not, we just buy a new deer.

Lights out...

Tonight we are supposed to turn our lights off between 20:00 and 20:15 to save the planet. This is advocated by Bild (a newspaper who is a strong opponent of high fuel prices and speed limits), Pro7/Sat1-Media (a TV group who will continue to transmit crappy programs and ads in this time and whose extremely bad reality shows are responsible for about 50% of TV caused energy consumption) as well as Google (an Internet company, whose founder is marrying on a tropical island, which has been enlarged by artificial sandbanks, who has his friends flown in by private jets and celebrates in air conditioned tents...).

The electricity companies are already stating that we will all die, because the huge changes when everybody switches lights on and off will kill the power grid.

Can we please return to planet earth sometime and start behaving like grown ups? I think, I'm going to be sick somewhere...
