with 8 seconds left in overtime

Within hours, I'll be in a train to Berlin. This is my third trip to Berlin this year, the first was for KOffice weekend, the second was for LinuxTag. Unlike the first two, this time it's not for "personal satisfaction" only because I'll be attending this year's ECOC (European Conference on Optical Communications). My last ECOC was in Glasgow, 2005. So it's nice to have a chance again to look around, rebuild contacts, and find out what other researchers are doing.

Update: I am already in Berlin. The conference started already, there are many exciting topics. We even get free WiFi so I'm not really fully isolated from the net, thanks to my N800.

The Bourne Ultimatum

Ultimatum is the last of the Bourne trilogy films. Here Jason was back, among others in Europe, on the search for his past. CIA tried to stop him by all means, but due to an internal conflict, some (including Nicky, again) tried to help him. You'll be following his journey and his struggles with a couple of flying bullets, dangerous car chasing, intense hand combats, as well as puzzles solving.

Ultimatum is, without doubt, the best of Bourne ever. Recommended.

Le Trote


These are rainbow trouts, marinated with some drops of lemon, salt and pepper, vegetable oil, soy sauce, tomato ketchup, spicy sambal, covered in aluminum foil together with slices of vegetables (e.g. carrot and kohlrabi), and baked for 15 minutes at 200 C. Simply delicious.
