Got’s Fruits?

lol… I downloaded the demo version of Fruty Loops today. What a blast. Great tool. Very intuitive and they’ve done a lot or I simply forgot how easy it is to use.

Not that I am going to share any of the stuff I do with it, I don’t want to embarrass myself but I thought I put a “mental” not here so I don’t forget to check it out in the future.

One funny thing I saw when I went to their old website name (opens a new page) is that you now get Kellogg’s Cornflakes at that address instead of digital fruits.

A unit not a unit???

Last week I went to Lowes to get wood and stuff to build a bed frame. It all worked out nicely except that I went back to Lowes because all the wood in this country is not correctly marked.

That means, If you buy a 2 x 4 inch piece of wood, it will actually be 1.5 x 3.5 inch… At least it’s consistent across the board. ALL the wood listed at 1 inch thickness is actually 3/4 inch and all the wood listed at 3/4 inch is actually 1/2 inch.

I got very mixed answers on this topic. Reaching from “I should have told you because everybody knows” to the cashier at Lowes that was not aware of the fact. I call that the Denmark syndrome, if yo know what I mean.

I guess t hat’s why Swiss build accurate watches and not Americans 😛

The quality of the wood is extraordinaire I have to say. It’s all Canadian and you can actually feel the power of the bears that lived with this wood when it was still a tree.

Here’s the result of my woodwork.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jungfraujoch – Top of Europe ?

I went to the Jungfraujoch today. I went there for the first time in my life. It was very impressive. There’s a lot of technology involved in transporting that many people from 2061 m above sea level to 3471 m. Especially thinking of that the train track was built between 1896 and 1912 pretty much by hand. (Infos on the Junfraubahn)

It is very magical to be so close to the legendary tip of the Eiger but the FrenchFries smell in the air drops one back to the touristic grounds in no time…
