Somebody had a similar experience with tech-conference giveaway t-shirts. Most of the shirts I got were simply twice as big as I am. But there seems hope (I got a pretty nice Intel shirt). See Kathy’s post.
And Kathy has some more interesting thoughts in her blog. Especially the “mirror neurons” post is really nice! Now you know why I lough even if I talk about very verysad things – it’s just my way of life .
When I first saw one of those key-less entry pads, I wondered how secure they are . Now I know – no security at all. It’s like the really stupid IR-controlled keylock I had at my Renault Clio that could be opened by every “universal remote control”. But I’ve only seen those key-less pads in the US yet.

The performance has to be investigated in more detail, LibNBC will probably provide benefits if lookahead is used. But this needs clearly more investigation. I posted it on the webpage because some people asked me to publish it … so feel free to play around with the patches. I’d also be happy to receive any feedback (yes, even bugs ).
The MPI_Bcast patch seems to break several MPI libraries (e.g. Open MPI (not the trunk and MPICH2) because it uses really huge datatypes. It works with MVAPICH and newer Open MPI trunk versions.
I decided spontaneously to cook something nice today to celebrate the third Advent. This time, I tried another one of a very good friend’s recipies. It was splendid – thanks! The results are banned to my blog:
The first stage – the chicken simmering in its own liquid
Stage 2 – after adding all ingredients *hmmm*
The very last stage – serving. It was gone shortly after that!
Hi, this is my first post – I added a photo gallery with images from Helsinki (okok, I’ve been there a couple of years ago, but it worked as a test-gallery). We’ll see how this blogging stuff goes
