set const
set matchbrackets "(<[{)>]}"
set morespace
set punct "!.?"
set quotestr "^([     ]*[#:>\|}])+"
# set tabstospaces

Trying GPS Track

Trying to use GPS Track J2ME program (source code available) for my Nokia 6300i together with a Qstarz BT-Q816 bluetooth GPS receiver.

Here is my way from home to the Univ. Salzburg CS Dept. (by car) with recorded positions every 10 seconds, imported in Google Maps

Back from China

Seen a lot...
Everything just worked, free wireless almost everywhere.

I found the train schedule information on travelchinaguide very useful; Tian Yuan Kui Hotel was really nice in Pingyao.

The great firewall of China blocked youtube, facebook, twitter, but not ssh.
