It is now obvious that I am not updating this blog anymore. The problem is essentially a technical one. I use to update this blog from my mobile. This worked particularly well since it meant that I could a) update it in any moment b) update it from everywhere c) add automatically a picture. Now this is not true anymore. As most of you know, I am now in Germany to finish my PhD. Jena to be precise. In Germany the costs for a contract for a mobile which is able to go over the internet are much higher. So I am left with taking the picture and then updating in a later moment. Somehow this is not that pleasant. It might come to a surprise to most of you, but I don't actually enjoy very much staying in front of a computer. It tires me a lot, and I only do it because the level of the information I can get is so much higher than anything else I can find printed. Add to this that I already have plenty of things that I need to do when I am in the office. Doing a PhD is only part of it. So I don't think I can keep on having a moblog. In particular I cannot keep on having a photo-web-log. Still by now there is a certain number of people who check this site to see if I am still alive (who are them? look near the rivers, some might be waiting to see me passing). So to reassure some and to frustrate some others I should keep on some sort of basic diary. Something very spartane, with no picture or anything fancy, but just some basic news about me. It should also help people who want to contact (or ambush) me coordinate. The positive news is that since I shall be updating from the web I shall start also to add tags; and the negative is that the style needs to be changed to make it able to use tags, and I have no time for that!
But this is not all. Up to now I have tried to write an entry for each picture that I would update on my flickr website (possible that there is no alternative to a yahoo (bleah!) based service! Damn!). Now I shall also free myself from those shackle and just add every picture as I take it. Or so. Not waiting until I have time to write something nice or funny or interesting.
