Insecure Life

For sure they make you take your shoes off twice on your flight from San Francisco to Vienna, transferring at London's awful, awful Heathrow airport ... but if you forget a lighter and a nail-file in your carry-on luggage none of their scans will reveal that.
I had been loking for the file for roughly over a week - except in the front-most compartment with the vertical zip, which I still find it strange I put it in!
Actually I had thought to myself once when I was looking for it in the rucksack "Ha, maybe they'll find it at the airport, that would be one good thing about the security frenzy at airports."

On another note the suitcase with Cockbot One in it, which went missing on the journey back to Vienna turned up and will be delivered to my house this evening.

Americano Life

One more week in SF, which has become significantly sunnier and warmer compared with the week before last.
Time to treat myself to another round of Burger 'n' Shake at St. Francis Fountain - now I'm sitting across in the sugarlump coffee lounge, which provides free WiFi and a fine Americano coffee (double Espresso with extra water/steam, same as Vienniese "Verlaengerter").

After this one and the previous ones I had for breakfast, which I picked up from the Parkbench Cafe I should be coffeinated enough for some transport action to be done - build-up for RoboGames has startet!

Doppelganger Life

My SF host David likes to dress like a LOLcat some of the time, the rest of the time he and Simone are getting busier and busier towards the upcoming RoboGames (see also SHIFZ-blog).
