Christkindlesmarkt photos

Thursday, December 24th, 2009

To celebrate this holiday season, here are a few photos I recently took of the Christmas Market (Christkindlesmarkt) in Nürnberg.

You can see the above in higher res on my Flickr stream (as well as all sorts of other photos), or see lots more Christmas Market pictures on my public Facebook gallery.

Have a Merry Christmas, and a happy New Years, Hanukkah, etc.!

Photos from Nürnberg’s Easter Market

Monday, March 10th, 2008

This past weekend kicked off Nürnberg’s Easter Market. It was a wonderful sunny day, with blue skies, so I brought the camera out and snapped a few photos.

I also put 36 (much lower quality) snapshots on Facebook. (I believe it is set that anyone should be able to see those.)

A few things I miss…

Sunday, February 3rd, 2008

I’ve been in Germany for two weeks now, and I miss a few things already…

morning flight

First of all, my family and friends back home (of course!). It was great to spend quite a bit of time with my family, and I was able to visit a few friends before the big move. (Hopefully they’ll come to visit in the months ahead…)

Outside of that, I wasn’t able to bring my books, and I’m missing the Wii a little bit too (I’ll need an NTSC-compatible TV)… and… a power adapter for my 750 GB IOmega hard drive… the one that all of my photos are on! (What a thing to forget! Oops!)

Now you know why my flickr page has not been updated recently… (Well, that, and I ought to go out and shoot a few pics.)

So, I apologize for not posting any of my pictures on flickr recently… (:

With that, I’ll end this post with a few of my favorite recently uploaded photos.

Squiggles and dots

Friday, February 1st, 2008

Dear “lazyweb“,

How do I type all those funny European squiggles and dots on the mere 26-letter US keyboard on my Lenovo X61 laptop in Linux? Searching Google and copy-pasting found characters is getting old pretty quickly. The correct way to type these characters is not obvious.

If it involves special scripts and downloading configuration files, I am not interested. How would one of those normal, non-geek user do this? I’d like to know the proper way.

(For “bonus points”, typing a Euro sign would be great too.)

Thanks in advance,
Umlautless in Deutschland

My big news for 2008: I’m moving to Germany!

(I’m still working for Novell; I’ll just be in the SUSE office instead.)
