Hey watch what you say now, because I am from Luxembourg.
But you're right it is a really small country.

Is it just me or is that the look of a guy about to dash off to a phone-booth to get changed?

How would you like it if someone commented on your website that you looked like you had been living in an alley?

@ Phillip, Bruce Schneier,

"Isn't that the country that is smaller than my town? :)"

"No, that's Liechtenstein."

Either way they are both definatly smaller than where I live and one of them would drop in my local park without touching the sides...

Give you three guesses as to where I live...

Siberia, easily.

And "definitely" a browser without a built-in spell-checker. :-)

Cheers!

I knew people were doing it tough, but trading in your Fortress of Solitude for an alley? Wow....

If you give some pointers to the barber you could look exactly like Obi (Jeff Bridges) from Iron Man.

i asked amazone.de if it's possible to encrypt the emails, because of my personal data.
the answer was:
"unfortunately we are not able to encrypt the (order acceptance) mails for technical and economical reasons.

these emails only contain your address and your products.

payment details are not mentioned in this mails."

hope my english is okay.

"... Leider können wir aus technischen und wirtschaftlichen Gründen Bestellbestätigungsemails nicht verschlüsseln.

An persönlichen Daten in diesen Emails, werden ohnehin nur Ihre Adresse und Ihre Artikel angegeben.

Zahlungsdaten werden in diesen Emails niemals erwähnt. ..."

I told that amazone.de thing, because of "cloud computing". a computer (and the internet) is no longer a tool it's a medium and 95% of the people want to use it (consume it) without knowing how the details work.

Personally I choose the $500 gain and the $500 loss. With the $500 gain I can use that to make the $1000, which I could not do if I gambled and got $0. With other I would take the $500 loss on the chin as to not do so would be the same as gambling $500 on a coin toss in order to make $500.

Come to think of it, I would take the $500 both times as I don't gamble unless I'm very certain of the outcome.
