Breakfast time [Dec. 9th, 2006|06:13 am]

So far I've done surprisingly well on the jetlag. I slept most the 2:55h SVO-MUC flight, and 8+ hours of the 12:00h MUC-SFO flight. And I slept last night.

So I'm not entirely disappointed that I'm awake at 6am and wanting breakfast. Breakfast it is.

On the MUC-SFO flight I sat next to woptastic, boyfriend of imgreen, who's on my and Dina's friends list. How random is that? He's a 23 year-old EE student, now getting more into programming, moving to Italy for a PhD program. Many good discussions were had. I don't normally luck out with such good flight partners.

After breakfast I should pack again. Going to Las Vegas at noon with dan_erat and dina. Currently ripping some Netflix DVDs to my iPod for the flight.

I'm curious, what do you use to rip DVDs for your iPod?

Lot of people seem to recommend the Mac program "Instant Handbrake". Seems to work pretty well.

when he told me that I was pretty much floored. How strange! I'm glad you each sat next to someone you could talk to though!

We're also both going to be in SF during/around new years. Will you guys be home?

You prefer watching movies on your iPod to watching them on your laptop?

i have to admit, yesterday made the world seem very small with all the random coincidences. I have to agree that you were a pleasant change from my typical flight partners. how often do you sit next to someone who shows you some perl and explains functional programming?!?

if the invitation still stands around new years, i think sarah and i would like to stop by (i think i'll have to sign an agreement saying i won't talk about computers though...)

sweet sweet russian moonshine, it would have been a shame if she hadn't made it in one piece (did the cork shift at all?)

the luggage is still in never never land, i guess they'll show up at a snails pace...

i got the email, thanks for the invite man :)
