“You misunderstood me sir,” the beggar says, “I did ask for money, not for advice.”

"Waiter!" a customer calls out "there is a fly in my soup!"
"Hush, not so loud." the waiter replies while rushing in. "we won't charge extra."
"What the . . ." the man sputters
"No, really, we won't" the waiter quietly replies, "but please keep it quiet or the other customers want the extra protein as well."

With people all around cheering and applauding rushing to greet the winner.

First -short and slow- run since I damaged my knee in June.
No problem apart from being out of shape. And it being waaaaaay to hot. And having some inflammation in a toe. And . . .
Well, everything else was good ;-)

- Hello Guido. How comes you ask 50c for a herring, while in the other shop they only ask 30c per herring?

- Well, then you should buy them there.

- Yes, I would but they don't have any left.

- OK, good. The moment I am sold out I will lower my price to 30c as well.

Jen : How can you catch an elephant with just one hand

Tim : You cannot, elephants with one hand don’t exist.
I used to have a netbook (Acer Revo) as my 'main' computer at home. Main as in mail en internet stuff. Main in the sense that I did not try out new soft/hardware on it. It was hooked up to a 19 inch Medion screen.
My second computer, (10x modified Medion, last with an AMD quadcore chip etc) for experimentations was hooked up to another 19 inch medion screen.
Now I switched my Main system over to another one, a small form desktop from Packard Bell) Hooked up to the old 19 inch screen.
The box has a VGA and a HDMI connector, the screens have a VGA en DVI connection so I thought I could hook both displays up on the computer.

No luck with that. The VGA to VGA worked. The VGA to HDMI via a converter worked. The HDMI to VGA worked (with converter) and the HDMI to DVI (with converter worked. But never both VGA and HDMI at the same time worked.
But neither did that work with the Revo (which also has VGA and HDMI).
So I thought is was a lost case.

But then I mislaid my HDMI cable, it's probably hiding on the attic somewhere, and I wanted to try linking my work notebook to a screen. So I bought a new HDMI cable. You may guess when I found the old one again . . .

And that worked with the notebook.
And while it was plugged into the screen tried it on the Packard Bell.
And it works.

So I finally have a twin-screen setup.

There are still some setup things to change. Like when I move my mouse slowly it doesn't cross over to the other screen but if I move fast to does. As is there is a gap to jump.

-Dad, Ethics . . . what is that?

-Well . . . difficult question. But I will answer it with an example.

Suppose one of our clients owes us a big sum of money. So I go over to him to get it. Just forgetfulness so he pays up instantly, no problems.

Back home I count the money and notice he payed 500€ to much . . .

You know Uncle Remi and I are partners, we share everything in the business.

-Yes. . .

-Well here Ethics begin. What to do with the extra money? Should I share it with Remi or not?
