Summer heat

Extreme heat in Germany. Best time to watch Hitchcock's Rear Window (German: Das Fenster zum Hof) again.
Whenever I watch this movie, which plays during a heatwave in New York, I can feel the heat myself.
It will be interesting to watch this movie now, as it is surley as hot here as in the movie...

My first Windows Phone App

I recently bought a Windows Phone and started playing around with app writing for it. My first app 'WebSearch' is now available in the Windows Phone Store, providing a simple interface to issue web searches to freely configurable websites.

Cupnhagen by Vienna Teng

Great performance by Vienna Teng last Saturday in Stuttgart.
One of the highlights clearly was the performance of Copenhagen (or Cupnhagen).
Here is a YouTube clip of the performance, from a different concert though:

Flowers in Winter

Some of the flowers on my balcony are a bit late this year. Now that temperatures are sub-zero, they show their full beauty:

Last hike for my shoes

As I live in Innsbruck, I try to go hiking as often as I can. Looks like a bit too often for some gear, because today my hiking shoes gave up - admittedly after more than 10 years and serving me well in the Alps, Corsica and around Seattle, WA. I guess it is finally time for a new pair...

Snow shoe hiking

Last weekend, I went snow shoe hiking in the Alps with my best friend Toby. We had great weather with a blue sky, sunshine - and of course loads of snow. Hiking was brilliant and fun. Luckily, the avalanches we saw (we are currently at level 4 of 5) were in a safe distance.

Leise rieselt der Schnee

Es schneit das erste Mal richtig in Innsbruck (in höheren Lagen liegt schon mehr als eine Woche Schnee), liegen bleibt aber noch nicht viel. Schönstes Winterfeeling...
