eines meiner lieblingsspiele auf dem C64 ist und war Elite. ein offenes Spiel, bei dem man jahrelang den weltraum erkunden, handeln und natürlich kämpfen kann.

Heutzutage spiele ich dieses Spiel aber lieber auf dem PC, denn die Einshcränkungen der 1 MHZ Rübe sind für meine verwöhnten Augen dann doch zu heftig.
Oolite heisst der Clon, 1:1 umgesetzt und leicht erweitert. hier einige impressionen:

Wer das Spiel einmal testen möchte kann es auf http://www.oolite.org/ saugen. Ein Augenschmaus mit ordentlich langeweile auf den interstelllaren Flügen :-)

Was dem Spiel eindeutig fehlt ist ein mehrspielermodus. die entwickler leider sind auch nur hobbyisten und so müssen wir darauf wohl verzichten :-(

some years ago i got the chance to take a closer look into computersecurity, by visiting the course "SECU" in FFMs university held by prof. dr. k. rannenberg ...
he told us, that we cannot imagine the power and equipment security services have and what they are able to.

well: read this story:

a virus infected industrial computers by utilizing 4 (!) unknown windows exploits. it should have itself switched off by spring 2009, but as some computers were dated back to prolong software licenses, so it survived and was found ... 1 1/2 years later.

this unique piece of software, which was perfectly programmed and hidden in the systems, must have been created by professionals such as security services. it infiltrated mainly iranian computers and control systems.

if you combine massive problems of iranian enrichment of uranium since spring 2009 with the now occured news, it seems very very obvious who is behind this cyberwar.

no windows computer is safe against this virus, which was brought in by a single usb stux.

we learn 2 lessons:
- dont use windows.
- never ever put a foreign usbstick in your computer

read the german article in FAZ.net

nevertheless is leaves a bad aftertaste (this word really sounds disgusting in english :-) ), what if all atomic plants are infected. what if large industrial complexes are already under control. what if there are other viruses with different exploits infecting banking systems and stock markets, controlling prices.

i am really not a fan of conspiracy theories, but right now i feel the need to take on my tinfoil hat again...

golem befragte zum thema den "security experten" ralph langer. Zitat:
. Den Schadcode für die Anlagen selbst könnten "weltweit vielleicht zehn Leute entwickeln, und drei davon sitzen bei uns im Büro", sage der Security-Experte. Und weiter: "Ich kann Ihnen aber versichern, wir waren's nicht!".

... wenn der markt so klein ist, wird er die anderen 7 persönlich kennen :P

bored of fresh air?

I just recalled a very impressive night back in 1995, short after my "university-entrance diploma" (abitur)

We met a girl called Delphine, an belgian exchange student. She was humorous and good looking, my friends took her with us to the very last night of the kanzleramt. (a very small club in bad nauheim, but its artists all became famous, such as heiko laux, anthony rother, johannes heil, pat lindsey. it was located Schnurstraße 12 Eingang Apfelstraße)

So we've had a great time in there, as it would have closed anyway, the bunch decided to blast away everything, destroy the inside and just drink to forget.

seconds before the police arrived, we decided (delphine wasnt 18 yet) to drive home, full of endorphines, happy like hell for being a part of clubbing history, but also a little sad, for this great time will never come back.

So we drove down the valley to a well known fireplace, where rehcil was chilling with his former gf sabine.
delphine started to share her "golden rules of life"

#1 - who is your best friend? - latex
#2 - be careful, fire burns
#3 - well, i actually forget this one :-D

as im growing older, i must say, these 2 recalled rules should be tagged in 50 feet large letters to the deutsche bank towers!!11eleven
all this is now 15 years ago, f*ck, i'm getting old.

sigh. keep the spirit alive,

UPDATE: 28.9.10 :)
facebook is a good place to search for a belgian girl called delphine i really found her, and guess what, she diesn't remember me :-)
I got the chance to talk to Tor Sten, one of the ppl celebrating this described night: the missing third rule is....


"Don't drink and drive!"


so long. have a nice week.
