I visited the Zeppelin Museum in Friedrichshafen this year and I can highly recommend it.
I had no idea that the US even had airships like the USS Macon, which actually acted as an aircraft carrier, launching propellor-driven planes by dropping them out the bottom.
There's also a great big partial reconstruction of the Hindenburg which you can go inside. Very swish.
I actually only went there because I was going to Germany (and nearby Switzerland) and Friedrichshafen's tiny airport happens to be a Ryanair destination, but it was well worth a visit.
Not so great in France
Apple's French web site was pretty harsh about the changes:
BT seems fine to me
We have BT here (albeit a business line), and 220.127.116.11 comes up clean (haven't tried our secondary which is 18.104.22.168).
Excellent, we're nearly half way to generating 1.21GW!
YouTube comments not allowed
It looks like they have some horrific custom-built flash interface that makes it difficult to get to the actual YouTube video URLs.
Managed to extract one of them, which then leads to the rest: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t6aG6PN0rgI
Oh my, how surprising.. the "Church" doesn't allow people to embed or comment on their videos. Why on Earth (or Teegack) would they do that?
Email API? 10GB bandwidth per day? For free?
"Your app can send emails to users, and we make it easy: no SMTP setup, no other fancy footwork required. Just create a Mail object and send it."
Superb. Now I just need a wee bit of Python plus the "bulk data uploader". Finally, no more purchasing botnets for me!
After you've done the initial setup after you've lost power (i.e. screen alignment and all that), just hit soft reset immediately to bypass all the O2 crap getting installed.
Anyway, Microsoft finally sorted out the annoying lose-power-lose-all-your-data situation with Windows Mobile 5.
Stats on the voting countries
Rob Weir has a great comparison of the voting habits of the countries Microsoft allegedly brought on-board, along with the perceived levels of corruption for the countries involved.
Been done before..?
Wasn't there a similar thing done last year or so, but with cars?
I remember seeing videos and everything. Cars would drive over a some blocks, sunken into the road like a cattle grid, which would dip down, do some magic and generate current.
Too lazy to locate the link though.
