This year somehow we’ve lined up an extremely nice holiday plan:
4-7 July – Rome, Italy
26 July – 3 August – Greek Islands
4 August – 16 August – Algarve, Portugal :)
That will mean I’ll have to skip my favourite hacker conference HAR2009 which is also in August. I’ll balance that out by going to the Eclipse Summit Europe 2009 in October and the “Stack Overflow Dev Days Amsterdam” in the 2nd of November. Wish me good travelling and let me know if you have nice tips of places to visit in Rome or Greece.
Had a very nice weekend that included camping and canoeing for 6 hours/20km on the river Lahn near Limburg.
It happens ESOC has an exact copy of the Rosetta spacecraft and today I got to stand next to it and see how it looks.
Rosetta features a military grade computer processor defined in MIL-STD-1750A by the U.S. Air Force and is also used for example in the Apache Longbow Helicopter.
Almost as being part of the Dharma Initiative..
