What a mess - Day 101


Our home is a mess. The day before we took off for our winter vacation (week 7) a water pipe broke and water was pouring down from our ceiling. After an emergency fix we drove to Austria and two days later we received another call - this time from the security company overlooking our home - that they had responded to an alarm call but found no burglar - only a lot of water inside our home. Another section of the water pipe had broken. From Austria we then tried to manage this rather serious situation with help from our neighbour. This time 50% of the water pipeline was exchanged with new pipes. When we returned home and turned on the water, another part of the remaining old pipe line broke and water came pouring down into our bedroom.

This photo (It's bad - I know) show the entrance to the 50% of our home that where flooded and where most part of ceilings, floors and walls are being dried and repaired. Vivi and I are sleeping in our living room together with all the furniture and stuff we had in all the rooms affected. Believe me - it is a mess.

"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…
