Doing something for the fitness - this time my new bike
Posted by Arne Hess - at 11:38 CET under Off Topic

Ok, all of us come sooner or later into the age, where we have to do something more for our fitness. We are not kids anymore and therefore we are not playing football/soccer or whatever on the streets everyday anymore but most of us are sitting most time in the offices, cars, aircrafts or whatever. So I did, the past 20 years or so. Nevertheless, I thought it's time to do more fore me, beside snowboarding in the winter and scuba diving in the summer, which are nice and great sports but let's face it, they are not that good for the fitness at all.
Therefore - after 20 years - I bought my first bike yesterday, a Bulls Cross Bike (not to be confound with a Mountain Bike) and yes, I can confirm that you are not unlearn bicycling, even if I don't feel as comfortable as I felt 25 years ago when I was heavily doing BMX (racing and freestyle but I wasn't that good in the half pipe after I've crashed pretty hard one time). Anyway, I think I have unlearned all these stunts and even worse I have lost all my condition but it's really good to be back in the saddle. :-)

FIFA + Word Cup + Video Streaming = Hot Topic for Search Engines?
Posted by Arne Hess - at 18:13 CET under Digital - Lifestyle

Looks like, at least I got many hits today from Google News where users searched for - "World Cup and Video and Streaming" - which Google News points to my previous article about Orb's new PC version which better supports DVB-T now and which enabled me as well (okay, I got the previous version also working but after the upgrade, this version works way better) to follow the World Cup, wherever I'm - as long as I have a broadband (UMTS or better) connection.

Posted by Arne Hess - at 17:02 CET under Digital - Lifestyle

I've written about my tries to get my Windows Live Mail Beta up and running before and today, when I tried to login to, it worked - finally.Also it asked me if I want to continue in classic view (Hotmail - nah... I don't like Homail and its layout at all) or with the new Windows Live Mail view and for sure I've selected the new Windows Live Mail view. So here it is, my new Windows Live Mail account which works with one of my own domains, I've registered with Microsoft's Live Domains:

  • Drag-and-drop organization
  • One-click control over junk and scam E-Mails
  • Right-click power - reply, delete, and forward
  • 2 GB of storage (2 GB = 2,000,000,000 bytes)

Frankfurt kicked-off the Word Cup with its fantastic SkyArena
Posted by Arne Hess - at 18:17 CET under Off Topic

Not sure if you have seen it in your local TV too but tonight you might have the last chance to watch it again. Last Saturday, Frankfurt am Main kicked-off the this year's FIFA World Cup in the Frankfurt night sky. The SkyArena, a multivisual show on the façades of the Frankfurt skyline, set the mood on Saturday night for the World Cup in Germany. Amongst the celebrity guests were numerous football stars and former World Cup winners, including Franz Beckenbauer, who was clearly thrilled by the spectacle.

Several hundreds of thousands of visitors from all over the world watched on in admiration, cheering Frankfurt's World Cup overture. A number of bridges had to be closed due the crowds and the public squares in the city centre were just a mass of people.

"That was pure emotion – as an artistic, multimedia presentation of the history and passion of football there's no topping that", was the unanimous reaction of the world stars on the banks of the Main.
