Romantic Weekend in Paris

April 27th, 2007 Comments off

Another proof that the discounts work – this time easyJet discount on flight tickets encouraged us to book a short 3-day trip to Paris. Neither of us has been there yet, so we’re looking forward to it very much! By coincidence it can also be regarded as a celebration of our 3rd anniversary – yep, that’s how long my lovely Minatko will have survived the relationship with me on 1st May… And I’d like to say how grateful I am for all her tolerance! By the way, we’ll be staying at Hotel Louvre Richelieu in the heart of Paris, within 5 minutes walking distance of Louvre :-)

Me and Amateur Radio (part one)

April 27th, 2007 Comments off

I haven’t written much about my amateur radio activities yet (actually, I haven’t written much at all yet… ;) Well, it’s about time to change it!

In case you haven’t heard about it yet – amateur radio, often called ham radio, is a hobby enjoyed by about six million people throughout the world. An amateur radio operator, also known as a ham or radio amateur, uses advanced radio equipment to communicate with other radio amateurs for recreation and self-training or public service (emergency or disaster communication). To become a ham and be able to communicate on the designated frequencies (familiarly called bands), you have to pass an exam at your local authority (CTU in Czech Republic, Ofcom in the UK, FCC in the US). Then you would be issued a call sign which you would use to identify yourself during communication. Read more…

Yep, after nearly five months, we’re going home for a few days again. We’re arriving on Wednesday 26 April about 20:00 CEST and leaving on Tuesday 2 May at 20:25. Main reason (beside seeing family and friends, of course) is wedding of my old friend Misa Kotkova.

April 14th, 2006 Comments off

I decided to start a new category for all that funny stuff one can find on the internet (and is constantly being spammed with by friends :-)

So, here’s the first one:

My Brand New Shiny [Metal] Blog

April 13th, 2006 2 comments

Wordpress LogoSo, I finally got myself a blog, too :-) It’s based on WordPress, an open source personal publishing platform. Actually, I was always laughing at all those exhibitionists blogging every possible thought that may have crossed their mind. But when I came across WordPress, I just felt like giving it a go :-)

So, let’s see how I get on – if it’ll either be overflowing with posts, or will just silently fade away. (Taking bets at 13:7) Stay tuned! ;)
