On 2. Juli 2013 Douglas Engelbardt died. In remembrance of ihm I would like to refer to his demonstration in 1968 where he introduced many concepts which are still being used today.
I’m already planning for a while to document the situation on bicycle paths in Augsburg from the view of a bicycle driver as video. Now I have found the camera for this – a “GoPro Hero 3 White”.
Especially in Germany the transport policy is often half-hearted when it comes to the topic “bicycle”, and in discussions people often talk about “rambo cyclists” or “combat cyclist” – see for example http://www.eltern-im-netz.net/kolumne/die-bedrohung-der-rambo-radler/, http://www.ndr.de/fernsehen/sendungen/menschen_und_schlagzeilen/videos/menschenundschlagzeilen1513.html or http://www.lokalkompass.de/wattenscheid/leute/hoehere-strafen-fuer-rambo-radler-umfrage-der-woche-d158225.html.
The Netherlands generally are known as the bicycle country in Europe – and many people may think “of course – the people in the Netherlands don’t have long distances… they don’t need cars for their daily commute anyway”.
Beginning of September 2012 the Remake of Half Life 1 based on the Source Engine was released.
The second title of the “Maniaplanet” series – Shootmania – is meanwhile in the public beta test and available for a reduced price.
Of course i couldn’t resist and have quickly set up a server for it ;-) – see also http://playground.arnowelzel.de/askaaron3/.

Dear Mr. Nuhr… “if you don’t have a clue… just shut up”…
Since a couple of weeks the official and long awaited successor of Trackmania United is available: Trackmania 2 Canyon.
Very nice… a documentation from 1984 about the topic “home computer”… sorry, German only.
