Slowly getting back into gears.

Wednesday, June 11th, 2003

The trip to Buchholz, the wedding, and the transition back to Berlin got me out of my slowly-establishing-itself routine. So I spent most of the day on the balcony, reading c’t and Le monde diplomatique and surfing the web. I wanted to go play some basketball, alas, there were too many people, and not enough power in yours truly to start playing with them. My stamina is still just above bare minimum and I would certainly have exhausted myself to such a level that I wouldn’t be of much use during the next days. Instead, I am now blogging and listening to one of iTunes internet radio stations (some blues hosted by the ParaDynamic Roadhouse). Later I will probably make use of the fact that today is “Kinotag” and go watch Rabbit-Proof Fence together with Kerstin. Read my report tomorrow!

By the way, what do you think about the most recent addition to this blog? It’s called “ozean’s digest” and can be found in the left column.>

Sci-fi? Truth? New Taser weapon introduced.

Monday, June 2nd, 2003

I just read news about a new electric shock weapon, the TaserX26. This scares me. I read about this weapon at the Heise Newsticker. You can read the article (in German) here.
You can read a good article about non-lethal weapons written by Steve Wright for the Le Monde diplomatique: in German, in English.
