When Babsi and I traveled on the beautiful Isle de la Reunion we discovered the good taste of the Bredes. On Reunion they call the green leafes Bredes and if you read on you discover the supersimple recipe …
I have been using various RDBMS systems for a while but now and then I discover things that really annoy me. I just found another one with Oracle. I might be wrong but here is what I found I have to do for a simple task. This article is as much a reference for me as it is a help for you.
Suppose I have a table with lots of entries and I want to get the latest three records. The reason will be that you are only interested in a certain part of the data and want the database to transmit only the data you need…
After a long time without a digital video camera accessible to myself, I have finally got my own camcorder. It took me quite a while to research the market and make a decision on what to buy. In the end I got a Sharp VL-AX1. The motivations for buying this camcorder range widely and I have a few plans already on what to do with the camera as well…
After releasing the site based on the free software solution Postnuke and others (find out more about how our site works here) enjoying the benefits of the work carried out by so many people out there we decided to release our theme back to all to use. Consider it still a work in progress though. We are happy with what it does for us and we follow the premise release often and regularly. So if you have any request or ideas to add let us know.
We will make the theme available in the download section once we figured out how the hell we get categories working for our downloads. For now just get the file from here.
We finally did it! An update to our site has been long overdue and we could only succeed thanks to a few great tools we found and our site is now using.
Originially, back in 1996 when we started to work on our website, we hardcoded our HTML with a text editor and that was it then. With a bit of planning and some hard work we were actually able to whip a site – Waterways – together we were happy with.
Things have changed since then…
After a bit of a scanning session and some fiddling around with GIMP the gallery with some visual impressions from Vietnam is now online.
Thx to Ryanair we had a free flight to London and so we went for a 4day trip to the capitol of England, where we enjoyed the market of Camden, the shops in the Soho area and the typical sightseeing thingies like the London Eye with its astounishing views

In 2002 I used the living room at Manfreds and Yens place in Melbourne twice.
We booked a local minibus trip from Saigon to Can Tho. The trip was a very comfortable ride in a new car. The driving was still crazy, but the highway was a bitumen road all the way at least. We arrived in Can Tho and were determined to make our way do find the house of a distant relative of Yen. Supposedly they knew who we were ..
After a great day island hopping around Nha Trang we were interested to investigate the city itself. We both wanted a hassle free day from all the taxi and cyclo drivers, so we decided to hire a cyclo driver for the day. The guest house receptionist recommended a nice local driver for us and off we went. Two people on a small cyclo can be quite a snug fit. I sat on a wood plank slightly elevated from the seat, legs spread so that Yen sit in the seat..and we headed off north from our hotel..
It kept raining over night and our trip to the My Son temple site was destined to get us a bit wet. The site originates from the Kingdom of the Champa and is situated inlands of Hoi An. We went there by bus and it was drizzling happily, when we arrived. Since it didn’t look like it would improve, we bought two of the plastic bag type raincoats and actually wore them, when we walked off to the site.
