A typical plague of the internetz has hit this blog. It had no posts for a long time. -silence- I am sorry for this, but even if it might surprise some people, sometimes there are more important things in life than keeping your blog updated.

I thought that the weeks at NY were a bit crazy, but I had one hell of a weird week down here afterwards. Must have received some injection down there. What a nice timing, right before exams! By the way, “Die Bank“, which was a full fledged bank for over 100 years, is a pretty…
