This is a really short web log only containing a couple of messages.
First of all, I want to introduce http://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/sdn/weblogs?blog=/pub/u/3747 [original link is broken] [original link is broken] [original link is broken] [original link is broken] [original link is broken] [original link is broken] to you. Hes a fine colleague of mine, working in the same team as I. This young (compared to me;-)) whiz kid has a bright and refreshing way of looking at things. Thats why Im happy that I could convince him to become a blogger too. His Integrating barcodes in webpages. deals with creating barcodes in a nifty and easy way.
Dries led me to discover The Hitch Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy a.k.a H2G2, which is a trilogy in five (yes, 5, it isnt a typo) parts by Douglas Adams. This hilarious story, which was adapted by Douglas Adams from his radio series, concerns an Earthling, Arthur Dent, who wakes up one morning to find the council preparing to demolish his home. That same day, the alien Vogons demolish the planet Earth to make way for a hyperspace express bypass. If you dont want to read the books, you can always watch the movie.
Speaking of galaxies and stuff. A small update on my web log Is there SAP on Mars?. The Einstein@home project is now officially live, so you can now participate in this project. Remember that Ive created a team called SAP SDN so that the SDN community can combine their efforts. Some people have already joined but more are always welcome. The “SAP SDN” team rank could/should be much higher! If you arent into this extraterrestrial stuff, you can always solve biomedical questions and investigate protein-related diseases, or improve the accuracy of long-term climate prediction. See the web log for details. I hope to meet you out there some day.
Btw, Dries will join me in attending the SDN Meets Labs event in Walldorf-Rot, Germany. I hope to meet you there too.
