there is a german car that has a nice slogan...
Vorsprung durch Technik

I can tell you this;
if you can drive a car on 3 wheels for 50 km at an average speed of 120 km/h,
you got a safe car...


so the audit gnomes are still running around, they have a gaunt outlook, and have to share 1 telephone, 1 internet connection and 1 printing machine.
i just noticed today that there are no windows in the room where they sit together with 15 persons...

horrible, i bought one of them a coffee after lunch, i felt sad for him, he looked afraid to go back into the room.

so far, this job is extremely interesting, but can't say to much about here on a virtual forum.
Corporations keep taps on everything, and when they're sure they have all bases covered,
it appears that the competitor is the owner of the company that collects and supposedly destroys the "confidential paper bins"..

So much for physical and network security...
for those of you who haven't been in the loop...

there is a young landscape architect in Brussels called
Erik Dhont: his site is supposed to be up and running by now,
go check, you might find it amazing, after all he's a great inspiration for "Moving hedges"

I've known this guy for about 10 years, saw him evolve from a starting, insecure and hesitating artist, to a conceptual master of the zen-like capacities that are required to engage in the most difficult of arts: restauring nature to itself.

that's after all what we all admire right: true nature. And since there are no more virgin forests in our immediate surroundings, we try to recreate something of the wild we all crave for.

we have a little bonzai tree here, nice to look at, but the surroundings are tough: airco kills the plants, and spreads diseases.
For the last 2 weeks i've been running around with a full-blown infection, viruslike because it's so absolutely contagious and strong.
Virusses rule the world, don't let yourself be led to believe that we humans are the strongest: it's the cockroaches, the virusses, the flies and the rats that dominate this planet...

salute, hasta pronto, and expect a major update this weekend
