My screen turned black all the time - someone had a look at it today and it's solved for the time being. There was something wrong with my videocard.

Either that´s a driver error which is not so likely or your card was overclocked or damaged or it overheated, but I don´t believe it will overheat in idle. When it is overdlocked too much it can make problems even in idle mode.

What does it mean that card is "overclocked"?

That means it operates at higher performance than retail.

A trilingual town-limit sign in Hungary!



I haven't been to that part of Hungary yet (except on the main road Budapest-Graz). Even though it borders Slovenia, very few of it is actually visible on maps of Slovenia.

Verso, if you take a journey to Hungary again or a journey on kickass nationalroads, make photos, sometimes kickass nationalroads can be smoother than motorways. I don´t know where I can find pics of the Bundesstraße 141 in Austria, that road is very smooth and feels very nice, but there are no pics of it.

Edit
Timon, if your graphics card often makes problems, change it, if you don´t play games you can have a graphics card for 30 € which will do the job fine, if you play the latest games however you will need to spend at least 120€.

Really? I dreamt I was in an airplane accident, it started spinning after touchdown but we all survived even though the plane was a wreck.

Today I had the feeling that the whole freight traffic in Europe is going through Hungary. I took the Budapest-Szombathely route (M1 to Győr then N85 to Csorna, then N86 to Szombathely) and back, and I have seen trucks with the following licence plates (in addition to Hungarian of course):

Austrian, Bosnian, British, Bulgarian, Croatian, Czech, Dutch, German, Greek, Italian, Latvian, Lithuanian, Polanish, Romanian, Russian, Serbian, Slovakian, Slovenian, Swedish, Turkish, Ukrainian

On the N86 (E65) the overhelming majority was Polish.

Yeah, Poland seems to get to be a major trucking country.

I see all of these regularly too, except British and Swedish, these trucks are rare here. Basically, there aren't many western European trucks around here (except from neighboring Italy and Austria). I can't imagine seeing a Swiss truck here. Their trucks are always colorful, always with some vegetable.

Now that you brought it up, I can't remember seeing any Swiss truck recently or in the recent past. I see normal Swiss cars quite often though (mostly from VD (Vaud) somehow).

LOL.


Today I witnessed a weird and unusal truck action on my way to university. Driver of a big truck was trying to squeeze into a tiny parking lot in a small residential street backwards
I was quite amazed by how he even managed to drive into this street in the first place! So I stopped for a while and I was like, are you kidding me or what, he's obviously not gonna make it. I don't think I have to tell you how tight the entrance actually is (although the parking lot gets big once you enter it)
So here he goes. After a few useless manouvers he finally went into the rear gear and after a few meters he hit the wall of the lot.
I don't know if he managed to get out of this shit cause I was running late, but man, did it look funny after all!

Looks like Struma

Truck drivers can get themselves into real trouble. The city center of Abcoude has a lot of trouble with trucks and buses that pass through. Way too narrow.

Yeah, I just counted a road in Holten, they say there's no bypass needed but 600 heavy trucks (9+m) pass through the narrow 6m street with cyclists and other traffic every day.
