silly - too one-timezone oriented

I just noticed - every time I post something, the web application adds in some default time for the post. Most probably the time of the webserver. How stupid... having an international site and then not offering an option to customize the timezone.

Oh well, I guess I'm too lazy to switch any providers now. So I'll just have to manually change the time, each time I post something. Urrgh!

(almost forgot to change time on this post)

why do people celebrate new year's eve?

Seems quite silly when you think of it, doesn't it? - a day/night like any other, just the year number changes. Well, I could ask this also about the change of the millenia 4 (or 5, depens on how you like it) years ago.

Do people consider numbers to be somewhat magical?
Or is it just the sense of recognizing that yet another year has passed. And then reflecting on the past year - the good, the bad and the ugly. Or looking into the future - what might become of the next year, what should/could be done differently when compared to the passed year. But, if it is the time for reflection and meditation then why all the parties?

Ah well, I guess it is all about the fact that the number of different attitudes about anything at least equals (but most probably exceeds) the number of people who are having those attitudes.

But in the end, all these parties seem rather pointless, don't they? :-P

the beginning

so this is it.

I've just created by second blog (the first was more like a niche-blog). Uh-oh.
We'll see if anything ever comes out of this - especially now that I have two blogs to post to.
And considering that I'm usually damn lazy at writing anything. But hey, maybe this is a good way to get some practice! :-)

FINAL WARNING: do not have any hopes for this feeble attempt to express my thoughts. Maybe it will work, maybe not.

Consider yourself warned. :-P
