Feeling Tired? Take a Nap!

Sometimes the pace of this world seems way too hectic. Everyone seems to be in such a terrible hurry to somewhere that no-one remembers to take it easy anymore. I for myself have noticed that when ever I go to the town with a schedule the time always just seems to run out. “Oh heck, I gotta run to get in time to these other places!”, “I’ve been here for too long!” and “Now I won’t have enough time to go to that one place anymore!” seem to be very common thoughts then. But when I go out to town to just stroll and visit the same places without any kind of schedule I have no hurry to anywhere. And still I manage to go to all the places I had intended to. Funny isn’t it?

So when I saw this little koala I was kinda envious of him/her. I mean, (s)he looks like (s)he has no worries what so ever. No obligations, no hurries, no pressure. Then again (s)he is caged in a relatively small space, so maybe I am the lucky one after all.

But you people, remember to take it easy once in a while! Posted by Picasa

The Path of Tranquility

Eventhough this picture is not taken from any japanese garden it still radiates the aura of zen garden.

The exact location where this picture was taken has faded from my memory, but I can remember that much that it was taken in Copenhagen, Denmark. Posted by Picasa

The Power Of Thy Sword


Lord of battle I pray on bended knee conquest by the rising sun
I'll wait for thy command with flame and blood at hand
glory and a broken sword.

I'm the master of the world I have no fear of man or beast
Born inside the soul of the world
Riding hard breaking bone with steel and stone
Eternal might I was born to wield.

Let us drink to the battles we've lived and we've fought
Celebrate the pain and havoc we have wrought
Great heroes charge into the fight
From the north to the south in the black of night

The clash of honor calls to stand when others fall
Gods of war feel the power of my sword

Drink to the battles we've lived and we've fought
Celebrate the pain and havoc we have wrought
Great heroes charge into the fight
From the north to the south in the black of night

Fierce is my blade fierce is my hate born to die in battle
I laugh at my fate
Now pay in blood when your blood has been spilled
You're never forgiven death is fulfilled !

The clash of honor calls to stand when others fall
Gods of war feel the power of my sword

The clash of honor calls
I will stand when others fall
Open magic doors
The will know the power of my sword

There is blood in my hands there is blood in my eyes
With blood in my voice I scream as you die
Thirsting for vengeance and mounds of the slain
Shaking the forest onto the plain

Fierce is my blade fierce is my hate born to die in battle
I laugh at my fate
Now pay in blood when your blood has been spilled
You're never forgiven death is fulfilled !

The clash of honor calls to stand when others fall
Gods of war feel the power of my sword

The Two of Us

Time to upgrade the hardware?

In the computer gaming world there is a way to increase the fps rate by adding a fog to the world. This way the drawing distance is lower and the stress on GPU is lower and thus the game runs smoother.

The fog on games starts to bug after a while even though it sometimes is realistic to have ridiculously low visibility. Unfortunately on some games, especially the older ones, the fog is there 24/7.

Nevertheless it is pretty neat to experience such a fog in real life every now and then.

Just don't stand there!

'Nuff said. Thus in Vienna Austria.

It wouldn't occur to me go standing there. Take a shortcut through? Nah.

But hey, better safe than sorry!
