Moin! War zwar in den letzten Wochen wenig aktiv in Köln, will aber zum Event am Samstag. In-game bin ich EHKOC, mittlerweile Level 7. Ich habe zwar bisher bisher es irgendwie geschafft, keine Kölner Frösche zu treffen, aber +Stefan Bunse müsste mich zumindest aus dem COMM kennen.

"On May 20, he boarded a flight to Hong Kong, where he has remained ever since. He chose the city because "they have a spirited commitment to free speech and the right of political dissent", and because he believed that it was one of the few places in the world that both could and would resist the dictates of the US government."

“What is wrong with the world?” – that is a question I’ve been coming back to in the last few days. Whenever I read about some problem that stirs a lot of discussion, arguments and – all too often – anger, I wonder: Don’t we have more important problems to solve?

Nice hover effect on the home link of my online banking. Along with the dotted outline and colored background, it also shows a label telling you where this link will lead to.

One photo: Default state. The other: Hover state. "zur Startseite" means "to Homepage".

I was in a good mood when I noticed this, after thinking about the nice multi-line notifications on Android 4. Often I don't have to go to the text message app, since I can just read messages in the notification bar.

Then I noticed the above, posted it, organised the uploaded photos so that the default state would show up first, the hover state second... but not, G+ decides to order by filename (I guess) and completely ignore my custom order. Meh.

On Friday I was walking around downtown Portland, looking for a place to buy a prepaid SIM card. Verizon had giant ads on various trains around town, and their's was the first shop that I spotted. I went inside and told the guy that instantly came to me what I was looking for. He asked me if I have a GSM phone. I reluctantly confirmed, not completely sure about my Nexus 4. He then went on about some gibberish about them not supporting GSM. Since my previous phone, the Nexus S, was bought in the US and I saw no reason why this shouldn't support whatever tech Verizon uses, I tried to argue a bit with him. Instead he put me on their waiting list, so that I could talk to someone else. My name appeared as "Jurn" on some monitor above the door, a little later along with "Chen" below (who I saw coming in as well). I killed some time with some silly iPad game, until noticing, maybe 20 minutes later, that my name had disappeared from the monitor. By now there was some other sales guy standing around, so I asked him about the waiting list. After some confusion about the lack of my name up there he just asked for I was looking for. Again, I said: "I'm looking for a prepaid SIM card". His brief reply: "We don't sell those."

Maybe the closest I ever got to yelling, cursing, or both, at sales people in public.
