Alwun House Halloween

Went to the Alwun house Saturday night for their annual Halloween party.

A mix of weird artsy-fartsy wannabe stuff, so it was fun :).

Sonya and I had different opinions as to which of the dance troups was worth watching, but we also got up and dance a couple times.

Some good costumes there. We went as zombies. Our costumes turned out pretty good and I did Alice eyes for my setup :).

Edric was there, so we hung out with him and his date for while.


The annual Irish Festival was last weekend.

They ran out of corned beef and cabbage before we got there :(, but the shepards pie was tasty :).

They had Guinness booths. This festival wasn't sponsored by Budweiser! Glad some people do the cultural thing right ( even if I don't like beer ).

Fun music and dancing. We didn't dance this time as we were short of time due to needing to make a wheelbarrow delivery.

$gf bought a hand-knitted sweater. She had passed up all opportunities in .ie to buy one, but finally gave it. It's quite nice. It's also a bit thinner than the ones we saw there, which is good in Phoenix.

Stammtisch happens

My roomie and I walked in to Old Chicago for Stammtisch tonight. As usual I was greeted with a round of 'Hey Hans' but it wad different as it was in English.

There sat Sean, Dathi, Jason and Alara :). Most cool.

Marc continued on to the Germans while I stopped to hang out.

Sean was up for fighter practice this week, so now I'm even more annoyed that I missed it.

It was fun hanging out and popping back and forth between the tho groups.

Sean can't stay for the Irish Festival tomorrow :(.

neues Auto

Ich habe Heute den Mitbewohner geholfen sein erstes Auto in Amiland zu kaufen.

Es ist ein mittelgroßes Geländewagen weil ihm das Sprit hier so billig ist :).

Das mit der Versicherung schafften wir aber nicht. Weil ich im jeden Auto versichert bin fahre ich am WE sein Auto und er mein.

Oktoberfest 2006

AC4GC's first Oktoberfest was also last weekend. A good turnout despite rain and being only a few miles away from the well-established GreekFest.

Michael of the, now closed :(, German Corner made sure we were well-fed. There was beer, of course. There was a booth from the Irish Cultural Center. That might've had something to do with the beer :).

The Irish Cultural Center has really been a help in getting AC4GC and the Oktoberfest started. Sliante!

$gf bought me a cool traditional germanic shirt.

Picked up some Feigling suspenders and saw a guy with a cool Lederhosen t-shirt.

GreekFest 2006

Autumn GreekFest was last week. Much fun as usual.

No souvlaki this year :(, but there was DANCING.

Yup, go figure, a bunch of Greeks get together, a Bouzouki comes and and there's DANCING. They don't quite hop around as much as a bunch of meercats in a war dance, but it's still lots of fun.

We had gyros. We had greek donuts. We danced. Life was good.

A friend who's worked the GreekFest for years took this year off, so we didn't hang out at the end and watch them DANCE^W clean up for the night.

GreekFest: go because it's there. OPA!!!

AC4GC Webausschuss faengt an

Wir haben uns mit einem Teil des Boardes getroffen. Es wurde entschieden, ein Webausschuss zu grunden.

Es muß auch ein Formular für Freiwillige beim Oktoberfest gemacht werden. Michael macht's.

Der Webausschuss emailt und trifft sich weiter um Design und Architektur des Sites zu verbessern.

Eventuel mußen wir auch Email und Emaillisten herrschen. Zuerst das Website verbessern.

ac4gc Oktoberfest

The Arizona Center for Germanic Cultures announced its Oktoberfest plans. Added the event to the calendar.

Also updated the calendar a little including fixing a Kino Abend entry.

Happy sysadm Day!!!

Today is sysadm day, so remember to thank your system administrators.

System administrators are professionals who work many thankless hours keeping the computing infrastructure working.

Sysadms don't get free trips to Hawaii for meeting quotas, don't get company cards to use for happy hours and generally don't get to come in late the day after working late.

Sysadms do get paged at all hours of the day and night ( not to mention weekends and holidays ), do get yelled at by people because something broke and do get to work long hours because someone else broke something.

aieeee, the colors

Ich habe mit dem CSS gespielt und endlich kapiert wie man die Texte in der verschiedene Rubrike anders farben kann.

Es sieht gerade etwa häßich aus. Wir können's aber jetzt verbessern.
