Our December 2010 Trip To Germany

In an effort to fight January blues back in Dublin, we spent this weekend reminiscing our last trip in Germany. Despite being a busy period for us - with Caroline working remotely some days- it was nice to spend time with family, especially since Sebastian hadn't been home for Christmas the past 8 years. The biggest achievement for us though, was the fact that we managed to register our Irish marriage in Dingelstädt, where both of us are now registered officially.

IT Recommendation: Jolicloud

Sebastian just installed a new Operating System that was released last October 2010: Jolicloud . Jolicloud is an Ubuntu-based Linux Operating System.

Jolicloud is fast, power efficient and ideal even for elderly net books.  Sebastian hat gerade ein neues Betriebssystem, welches im Oktober 2010 veroeffentlicht wurde, installiert. Es handelt sich dabei um Jolicloud . Jolicloud ist ein Ubuntu-basiertes Linux Betriebssystem. Es arbeitet mit freier Software (in der sogenannten 'Cloud') und ist aehnlich wie das heiss erwartete, aber noch nicht veroeffentlichte Google Chrome OS. Jolicloud ist schnell, energiesparend und ideal auch fuer aeltere Netbooks .

Something Funny

Not only Ireland can integrate roundabouts on their roads, sometimes no-one actually knows the sense behind. You may watch the video below that was recorded in Erfurt, Germany - a roundabout that nobody understands...  Nicht nur Irland kann Kreisverkehre ohne Sinn in Strassen integrieren. Das Video hier zeigt einen Kreisverkehr in Erfurt, Deutschland, den niemand versteht.. .

Happy 2011!

Caroline & Sebastian wish you all a happy new and successful year 2011. Caroline & Sebastian wünschen allen ein frohes neues und erfolgreiches Jahr 2011.
