At least five days I have been ill... almost too tired to do something. Piled up work, left emails unanswered and felt bored as hell... At least I took the pleasure to learn all of the words for HSK level 1 (now moving on to level 2).

so today... I made myself a hot chocolate drink... for a moment I didn't care what my stomach said! #荷兰巧克力

The thread contains a lot of interesting and historically important photos

There's a thread going on over at Quora about "the most epic photo ever taken." While I don't think any of these necessarily merit the crown, there's a great collection of iconic images of the 20th and 21st centuries on the thread:

http://www.quora.com/Iconic-Images/Whats-the-most-epic-photo-ever-taken

But I think that we, as Plussers, can find even more awesome. I put it to you: Find a photo (or several!) which you think is, indeed, one of the most epic photos ever taken, and tag it #epicphoto.

I'll start with a moment which changed the world: this is a photo of the Trinity test, the first detonation of a nuclear bomb, 16 milliseconds after criticality: 16 July 1945, 05:29:45.016. For a sense of scale, the small black specks in the front are trees. J. R. Oppenheimer, who was technical lead of the Manhattan Project, later described it with words from the Baghavad Gita: "Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds."

What are your most epic photos?

I try to work a little on my Chinese presence as Business and Communities Developer, F/OSS Consultant in Beijing, so I have added myself to some of the Chinese social networking services:

The news is personal quotes, but also tech news related to Open Source, Fedora, Mozilla, MeeGo/Tizen and more. From time to time I post job offers or other chances to even get free hardware...

Story
Tagline
Business and Communities Developer, F/OSS & IT Consultant - Beijing, China
Introduction
Got exposed to the Amiga-virus in 1986 and never cured... and now a developer and ambassador for the Open Source community by representing different projects, like Fedora, Mozilla, Maemo/MeeGo/Tizen, Mono, FSFe and others.

I am a multi-disciplined developer who has a unique blend of creative, managerial and technical talents. I am highly motivated and continually strive to broaden and deepen my extensive knowledge and expertise. From childhood I have been active in IT and have successfully turned my hobby into a career. Through my openness and involvement I am able to turn each problem into a challenge that needs to be tackled, aiming for a successful outcome. I can be technical, but have excellent communication skills as a team leader, a quality that I have demonstrated many times as an IT manager.

F/OSS & IT Consultant with working experience as a Software/Hardware Engineer and Visuals Artist. Have experience developing software for both Unix/Linux as well as Windows based software in different programming and scripting languages. Hold certification for SCJP (Java Certified Programmer), MCP (Microsoft Certified Programmer for .NET) and Object Orientation. Specialise in dealing with a mixed Operating System environment for development and system administration; using Linux/Unix, Windows, Mac OS X systems and other operating systems. I’m an active consultant for Linux/Open Source in China and as part of this I hold lectures on software development and Open Source. I’m also a Fedora FAmSCo member and assist the Chinese Fedora Community.

As an IT consultant I have many years of experience developing in different programming languages. I have been certified in both Java and C# (.NET) and have dealt with C, Python, JavaScript and many others over the years. Due to this I have an excellent understanding of the underlying concepts and paradigms. Learning another language would not pose a challenge. I have had responsibilities ranging from general software developer team-lead to architect for a migration project (from old technology to greenfield implementation and maintaining the underlying data model). Also dealt with interoperability and cross platform support (x86/Windows, Linux and ARM/Linux) of a large codebase.

Currently I am based in Beijing, China and the Netherlands.
