I just watched "Trading Places", which I still think is one of the best movies ever. (Especially spending Christmas Eve home alone, puts you in a good mood ;-) ) I must have watched that movie about 50 times, and yet I never fully understood what exactly happened at the end, apart from the fact that Winthorpe and Valentine screwed the Dukes with a fake crop report. I finally got around to googling it ("can somebody explain to me what happened at the end of trading places" actually worked.)

By the way, I also found a flaw; how did the actual crop report to its destination if the guy who was supposed to deliver it was being shipped to Africa or something wearing a gorilla suit?
A definitive answer to one of the most important questions in the history of finance.

Dear weird people who add me for no obvious reason: Note that people are a lot more likely to add you back if you post interesting stuff. Or if you just post stuff, period. I'm not going to add anyone who doesn't write anything. Or anything I like. Or understand. So if you expect people to follow you back, you need to work for it, at least occasionally. At the very least with an interesting "About" section. Empty profiles will get you nowhere. Also, it helps if you at least write the same language. If you can't fill any of those criteria, please don't bother. Thank you very much.

Put Windows 7 back on my computer alongside Ubuntu. How do I stop it from auto-upgrading to Windows 10? I'm not letting it go online... rather efficient, actually. 😜

I'm planning to put my old Lenovo IdeaPad on ebay. It came with pre-installed Windows XP. Of course, I ended up resizing the partitions and putting Ubuntu on. I used it for a few years, but not really enough, so thought I'd sell it. Of course, that means I need to wipe it. The plan was to simply remove Ubuntu and then use the Lenovo restore tool to put it back into its original state. But for some reason, that's not working. Then I thought, well, support for XP is over anyway, maybe I should put Ubuntu on... Of course, I would have to choose a user name and password, which might also be inconvenient for whoever buys it. Then I found this...

Ubuntu is truly amazing :)
I would like to pre-install Ubuntu on a computer for someone. I may want to customize it for them, but in the end they need to be able to choose a username, password, etc. when they first boot it up.

As far as I'm concerned, the coolest piece of tech they invented for the Iron Man movies is Tony's holographic computer interface. That is something I'd like to see become reality in everyday computer usage.

I think I need a Facebook break. Man, that sh*t is depressing. Makes me wonder why I ever went back there. Although I do have to say, at least I made one new friend who is RL friends with good friends of mine and who is a very interesting person, so maybe it's worth it after all.

My life just got a hell of a lot easier. Sigh. I remember when I had a computer with two built-in USB ports and I had to buy a 4 port HUB, which was then fine for all my USB needs. Now I have a computer with 7 built-in ports (4 in the back and 3 in the front of the case), that same old 4 port HUB (which still works fine, although I suspect it's still USB 1) and I still had to buy this. Life got too complicated.
I got it from Amazon; in the search results it showed up in the black version for 11,49. I thought that's affordable enough, so I clicked on it and then saw that they had some really ugly versions in red, blue and yellow, all 2 € cheaper than the black 😜. I guess there's enough people who care about this sh*t to shell out an extra 2 Euros.

Introduction
I hate writing about myself, but I'll try anyway.

I'm a photographer by profession, but I'm also a guitar player & singer... still working on getting better every day :)

I'm a bookworm. What kind of books? Well, a while back we had a visitor from the U.S., and he looked at my bookshelf and asked: "Are any of those books Science Fiction or Fantasy?" I asked him, "What do you mean, 'any'??" The same is true for my taste in movies and TV shows.

I like computers, but mostly as an "advanced user" — I ditched Windows in 2005 in favor of Linux, on which I'm doing all the system administration. My skills in Google-Fu are helpful with that :)

I'm also into web designing, although more for fun than anything else. My largest project is www.alangraham.de, but I also designed my two blogs and www.daniel-fernholz.de .

Politically, I'm a die-hard liberal.
