    How does the world look in your neck of the woods


    Go to your living room window and take a picture of the view - then post it here. This is my view (in Germany) in the summer and in the winter.

    I love Leipzig where we live, but I am really in love with the village of Gräfrath in Solingen where we have our second home, needed because of my work.

    This shot is not from living room window but from kitchen in Gräfrath, taken last year when the marching band had last rehearsal before village carneval:

    ripbox, you can come and live there if you like. My place may be too small, but there is a nice hotel next door where you can stay as long as you wish.

    That's south, right? Baden-Württenberg or Bayern?

    It's very beautiful there. We have friends in Bad Peterstal, love to visit them especially in the summertime.

    Yeah, who want to be there in the winter. Florida is better (although this year it is pretty dismal here too - because of El Ninjo).

    You certainly have a great view, I'm jealous not everyone is lucky enough to be able to follow the weather when it comes to where they live, at least I don't have to look out on concrete I have a few trees around me and fields over the back the sea a couple of miles away, I'm glad I don't have to live in the town or a city

The Computer World 25 Years Ago
Came across an old article from 25 years ago (1988) about the Commodore Amiga, so though I'd share. $995 for the Amiga A500, with 512k RAM, 4096 colour monitor and a 800k 3.5" floppy. It got me thinking though, I'm surprised we don't see lots of old Amiga/Atari/Sinclair computer games adapted...
