52 States in 8 Months

About Ulf

331I’m studying Engineering Cybernetics in Stuttgart, Germany. That is somewhere in mechanical engineering. Other people call it “control theory”. I’m currently writing my diploma thesis in Newark, Delaware, USA.

Martin found a nice description about “Technische Kybernetik“. It’s in German.

    Ulf, I think you are cheating by counting states you didn’t took a picture of. So you at least should have took a pic when you flew above island and so on!!!

    Did I write Island? That would be wrong, definitely. But I actually took a photo from Ireland which was the last part of Europe I’ve seen (should be in my very first blog post).

    Here you can find the North Atlantic Tracks:

    They do actually change a bit every day due to the weather conditions, but it should be obvious that we flew over Ireland.

    Hey Rocktobayobaday (got it somehow right?)!
    For obvious reasons there is no German version. I’m here to improve my lousy English ;-).

    Hey, ich bin ja mit “Steffi erobert die Welt” verlinkt.
    B-) cool…

    Das erinnert mich irgendwie an Pinky und Brain!

    Tjo, das passiert wenn man seinem Blog keinen richtigen Namen gibt — dann denken sich andere Leute eben Namen aus, die zum Inhalt passen :-).

    Ulf! Nice blog, as said before, but again something to critize: I’m searching for a new desktop background for my uni computer, as I begin to get bored of Angela Merkel and Nicolas Sarkozy, and you have a lot of wonderful pictures with you in front of wild-romantic Hawaiian backgrounds – but all in upright format, and I don’t intend to turn my desktop for the sake of the picture, although I’d do a lot for it.

    Best ever wishes,

    ELKÖÖÖ

    Hey Elkö!
    Most pictures should have something between six and ten megapixel, so you can just crop them to your screen resolution.
    Best Regards,
    Ulf

    bist du wieder in deutschland?
    dein auto hat mich am donnerstag (25.06) auf der a7 zwischen kassel und göttingen überholt.
    heizer!

    LOOL!! Das passiert selten, dass ich auf der Autobahn Bekannte treffe … bzw. jemand mich trifft ;-). Schneller als 140 bin ich eigentlich selten gefahren; ich hatte zur vermeintlichen Zeit zwei Leute von Mitfahrgelegenheit.de dabei.

    Einmal musste ich auf der Fahrt an dich denken: Da war ein Wagen mit 80 hinter einem LKW (und blieb da). Hast du nicht mal ne Windschattenfahrt von Bayern aus hoch gemacht?

    Heute Abend ist bei Johannes Grillen — biste dabei?
