New Search Coming

Soon we’ll have a new player on the search market. Wolfram|Alpha. Alpha probably being their testing name but it is a bit of strange name.

Anyway, let’s see what they can do!

Split it up!

This could be obvious to some but I think it is a good idea to keep in mind when packing a suitcase or suitcases for those traveling in pairs or more and with a few cases coming along with them.

Given that it is entirely possible that your luggage could go astray during your journey, and it often does, it’s probably a good idea to pack a few things of your own in your companion’s luggage. Luggage can go missing occasionally. It often does when traveling on multiple airlines or carriers that are not in some sort of alliance or agreement of cooperation.

You could put some underwear/panties, shirt, pants, toiletries, shoes and socks in each others’ bags. If one of your bags goes walkabouts, then at least you have something to change into on arrival. That’s assuming all the bags don’t go missing!

I once spent 2 days in terrible tacky clothes that barely fit me when I was young after my bag didn’t make it with me to my destination. I was traveling alone at the time so there wasn’t much I could have done apart from taking some things with me in my carry-on.

Hope your bag makes it with you on arrival!

Heineken Brewery Tour

A fun thing to do in fantastic Amsterdam if you have a couple of hours to spare and enjoy beer, is to do a tour of the Heineken Museum Brewery – www.heinekenexperience.com. The tour started in 2001 and is done in the former Heineken brewery which is now a national monument.

It’s great! They take you through the old brewery explaining their brewing method, show you videos detailing the whole brewing process and give you beer at the end of the tour.

Something tells me these guys either don’t know their rights or aren’t too concerned with having extra arms…

Robert Mugabe is an Idiot

Plain and simple.

It’s a crying shame really what’s happening over there in Zimbabwe. A once prosperous nation is on its knees due to the bumbling idiotic paranoid Robert Mugabe. What’s worse is that there are bigger idiots than him, clearly, the ones voting for him. They also need their heads checked. Whether so many people could vote for him is debatable. How could such an idiot garner so many votes? Inflation is in the 100s of thousands, unemployment rife and empty store shelves are everywhere. To me, it’s a clear indication that even though he “lost”, he’s still rigging the vote and doing it so badly that he still lost the election. Now that is a moron!

Now will you Zimbabweans please stand up and rise against this idiot! Clearly, no one else is going to do it. The sooner the better!

VW Disappoints

We’ve just had a little boy about 4 months ago. Cute little guy with his very own room and everything. We have 2 cars. One is a big fat truck which is great and the other car is a VW Citigolf, the Golf V 1 – yes they still make them here. For some of you, you might remember it as the Rabbit.

Anyway, we’ve always taken the little guy around in his car sear in the truck without any hassles. The truck had to go in for a service a few days ago so I was left with the VW for the day and had to go out quickly with the little guy in toe. Well to my surprise, I found out that the seat belts in the VW are too short to strap his seat in. Now what kind of car company manufactures a low end car, and therefore more affordable for younger people who are more likely to have newborns, that cannot have a baby seat strapped in properly? Really? Are you guys that useless in Development that you hadn’t thought of the length of the belt or were you too busy chopping 2 feet off the strap to boost your profits only to put my son’s life in jeopardy???

Come on VW, you’re German, you can do better than that! What’s happened to your reputation as German engineers???!!!
