No I'm a friendly person and unless you display the same idiotic enfuriating behaviour you showed at the Zappa-forum screwing up every thread with offences, drawing attention to yourself like an adolescent Bart Simpson, I'm not tempted to do so.

I cleaned up some of my old sketches. If my computer was working, I could scan some of them. I drew a real cool one of FZ. :cool:

There you have it: always store a back-up! I lost all my MIDI-files when our old Compaq crashed, plus all my documents. Fortunately my father managed to salvage all the PC's contents using an USB-stick and many hours of spare time.

Cool. What kind of materials did you use?

Nah. They didn't buy the Dutch Fortis/ABN Amro: that was bought by the Dutch government.

Down out and feeling blue. My student Utrecht/Eindhoven commuting career has come to an end. :-(

Last time my computer crashed, it was the same situation. When my computer was fixed, all the files were still there, so I presume it'll be the same here. Having the money to do so is another deal altogether. In any case, I have all the originals of my sketches/paintings/etc. The only things I really need to save are a couple of really good screenplays and a few mediocre ones that need work.

Sketch book. Drawing pencils. I had a bottle of ink, but I lost it when I had to move back into the old house. I really wished that I could have grabbed that, but I was short on time.

Isaac: get a huge USB-stick. They're cheap and can fit more data than you can imagine on something you could carry around in your mouth. If necessary filter out the crapola you don't need. Losing something unique is the worst that can happen to you. I lost several plays I had, one of them has no other version stored anywhere.

In 1991, back in the days when Hypercard was still a big deal on the Mac I spent over a week of 12 hour days developing a stack that would play back chess games so you could analyse games without having to mess around with an actual board and pieces. I built in quite a few handy features like being able to choose any position in the game just by typing in the move number. In July 1991 I flew to London and the bastards at British Airways smashed my computer for me and no data was recoverable. That was a painful lesson for me.

Sounds nifty! I didn't know you were a chess player!
Sorry to hear you lost it... Did you ever rebuild one?

I have mentioned that I play chess before, in that poll thread of Slime's, maybe you overlooked it at the time. No, I never got around to doing another one. If I was going to do it again I'd have to build it as an application but I've gone right off programming.

That's right! BNPParibas left the smelly stuff were it laid! They did buy up all of Fortis belgium and luxembourg though and it's a real sweet deal. The belgians are just now coming to terms with what happened to their bank.

Everything is in meltdown mode today though and it looks like things are going to get worse before they get better.

Why are you leaving University Bonn??

I'm still a student... am busy writing that Zappa-thesis (yes, I know I've been saying that for 5 years, but today I actually managed to write some down.,,)
There's a limited amount of time you get college finance. A scholarship for 4 years, then, in case you want one, a loan for 3 years. I loaned money after my scholarship ended, primarily because my sister told me to do so. It came in handy recently.

Part of the students finance in The Netherlands is a traffic card which allows you to travel by train, bus or metro anywhere in Holland, free of cost. It's enabled me to stay living with my father in Eindhoven, instead of moving out to Utrecht. I travelled the 50minute train distance for seven years.

Unfortunately, a mix of wrong study-choice, arguments with the new subscription system that would often leave me out of class while I subscribed, and a nasty grim period of a year and a half, caused so much delay that I'm now forced to hurry up with class. Now my finance has ended and I need to pay if I want to go to Utrecht in future. :(
