10-day visit from my friends

My friends from spain finally left after a 10-day visit to Vienna :P. I showed them all the cool places and stuff I know and we had a great time overall. I also went to Baden's thermal water spa and the Opera for the first time, along with them.

During the trip, they took about 1000 pictures combined, but I will only post a few, though they are probably not the best:

Mis amigos de España finalmente han marchado después de una visita de 10 días a Viena :P. Les enseñé casi todas las cosas que conozco y lo pasamos en grande en general. Tambien fuí a las aguas termales de Baden y la Ópera por primera vez, junto con ellos.

Durante su visita tomaron cerca de 1000 fotos entre todos, pero sólo pondré algunas, que seguramente no sean las mejores:

BSOD on my camera

Today I discovered a new feature of my HP R707: the BSOD mode (blue screen of death).

By the way, I am back in Vienna along with some friends from Alicante. I will post some pictures soon.

F1 training session

Some big F1 teams like Renault and McLaren were training today in the Ricardo Tormo circuit in Cheste(Valencia). I went there with my friends and took some pics. World champion Fernando Alonso was not present, but I think Fisichella and Raikkonen were there.

University of Alicante on February

Today I went by bicycle to my university in Alicante. I took some pictures so that I can show them to my friends in Vienna next week. It is usually quite warm here, about 16ºC in the morning. Shame on me that I have nothing to celebrate today.. falling in love can be too troublesome for a erasmus student (first and last boring comment about love for the next 6 months..).

Quoting H. Simpson: Jesus, Allah, Buddah.. I love you all! :)

Alte Donau + back in Spain

Some friends told me that it was possible to walk over the frozen surface of the Alte Donau, so I went to check it out. It was not really cold that day(about 3ºC), but we the surface was firm and we could walk around without major problems.

I forgot to say that I came back to Spain for one week, returning to Vienna on the 17th February. I have been 4 months away from my family and my friends, so it was about time. There are no lectures in the Technical University of Vienna during this month, so it is the perfect time to travel and relax a bit.

Finally, some links:

  • WikiTravel, a collaborative project to create a world-wide travel guide. The entry for Vienna packs a lot of useful information and resources.

  • Interview with John Carmack on mobile development.

  • I updated the PC/Mac snippets article that was published in last month. You can download it in PDF format here
