MP3 player of choice: a few (e.g. audacious in Unix/Linux, winamp2 for W32), portable: Cowon (plays OGG-Vorbis and FLAC!)

Personal Quote: I'm an elf. I'm allowed to do that.
Happy new year everyone,
and finally snow! At least here. Snow makes winter sooo much better.
2016 is over and while it was personally mixed for me, but the world (politics, partially economy, environment, human society) seems to have gone crazy beyond reason. But we also need to focus on the positive part and not forget that the majority of people are well meaning. And it often just needs a few persons to make a bad impression.
Well, and a lot of people died in 2016. "Less famous" persons in senseless wars around the globe, deaths that even go unnoticed (famine, AIDS, ...) but of course 2016 took quite some iconic people from us, and I mean the good ones (Carrie Fisher and her mother were like a kick in the stomach at year's end).
I still wait to see the ruthless persons in positions of power and dictators of this world go...
I had some progress last year but was still very busy. A few things I am still stuck at (get a job... it's not that easy once you're something they'd call a qualified person), but also some progress here and there.
Either way, I try to look forward. And I'll try to get stuff done at least on a personal level. Do what I am able to do. And also upload some landscapes that will hopefully be a treat to the eyes of others and give them a moment of good feelings.
the elf in charge
