Ski family - Day 47


The last day of our 2012 ski vacation has ended. From left Finn is holding his new ski, which made him a better skier due to a better fit and grib. Next the daughters Mathilde and Amalie, who both made strong progress in becoming better at skiing and snowboarding. Then we have Lissen - Finn's wife - who also got a new pair of ski. As it turns out the cost of a good pair of ski has come down considerably and hence the ROI compared to renting is 2-3 seasons / trips.
My wife Vivi is very happy for her new very yellow skijacket, which - in her own opinion - made her a better skier. My son Christian had a fantastic week and really learned to master a snowboard. On the last day he went downhill with me on a black slope. Christian is holding my new set of ski - HEAD i.Speed Supershape - requiring "excellent skiing technique". Even though I've been skiing for over 20 years and think I'm a fairly good skier, this was a wakeup call for me. Suddenly it wasn't me controlling the skis but the skis controlling me. Alone the weight is twice my old skis and the ability to cut through ice and deep snow is marvelous.

I've just ordered a new book from Amazon. The name "x-teams" immediately caught my eye as I read about it in the Danish business newspaper - Børsen. The reviewer assigned 5 marks out of six, so expectations are high.
X-Teams written by Deborah Ancona and Henrik Bresman raises an interesting question already on the front cover.
"Why do teams fail?"
The topic of the book is how to build teams that lead, innovate, and succeed. I'll write a short review as soon as I've read it.

SnapScan 9000 - be prepared for a laugh

Can you guess who the nice young man is in the image? It is me as a high school student - important years - where my passion for photography really took off. My god - 35 years has passed since those happy years.

I have just scanned b/w negatives and color slides from these years, and it has been hilarious to see the pictures again. Since many of the images are not something to boast about, the mission was only to get the old negatives and slides converted to digital format. Since I have many pictures from my analog years this conversion process must also go quickly.

Therefore I have just tested JOBO Snapscan 9000. It took med just 5 minutes to unpack it and set up. The scanning process is extremely simple. You install an SD card in the scanner, and then feed negatives or slides into the scanner by the help of various rails and frames - one at a time. The scan process only takes 4 seconds per negative / slide. The scanner has some simple correction options such as built-in color corre…
