    No es amor, no es amor, es una obsesion.

    I find this tune, a house remix by Aventura, pretty addictive. I got it on my newly acquired iPod Shuflle, a present given to me by my friend Petros. Petros used to be my downstairs neighbour, then a CS student at the UOC, who initiated the wireless network in Iraklio and who has landed a fantastic job in Athens these days with the Greek national administrator of the internet. If ever I would need something done beyond my own mediocre-at-best technical skills, I would put my money on Petros. But he’s gone now… But if you need a technical guy-with-brains-and-a-heart in Greece, give me a call and I pass you on to Petros.

    Lo que tu sientes, se llama obsesion…

    In the mean time, I have been pretty lame at moving our stuff to the new house. My back cracked after 2 weeks of running around as a hunchback in the beginning of October, just before my holidays. Why as a hunchback? Because our new temporary offices are made to mediterranean height standards, which put the maximum height at approximately 1,70 meters. I’m 1,83.

    So Yvonne has been doing the heavy lifting this last week…

    I, with my limited capabilities, have been confronting the bureaucracies (again). To move our telephone number to the new location the procedure is as follows: I have to file a request on 31st of October, at which date our current line will be disconnected, then — with the help of the gods of the Olympus — a maximum of five working days later our new line will be operative. If we’re lucky. For our ADSL connection I will have to file a new request, AFTER the phone line has been established, after which date we will have to wait another maximum of 20 working days before that line becomes operative. When I asked why I couldn’t file the two requests at the same time, the answer was “that’s the procedure”. Don’t ask…

    She walks in mysterious ways

    But that’s another tune altogether…
