Did this also include the inspection by the transportation authorities or it was just the regular maintenance ordered by the car's manufacturer after running a certain thousands of km?

In Hungary the technological inspection and the environmental inspection are two different things. I find this system lame... My car is 17 years old, and the technological inspection is valid for 2 years while the environmental is only for 1 year... So that the brakes or the steering are functioning is checked every 2 years but the smoke produced is checked every year
There should be only one inspection when they check everything IMO. What about the system in other countries?

We have both on technical inspection and you must pass all.

It's called an "APK", "algemene periodieke keuring", or "regular periodical check". Diesel cars must run a soot/particle test too. Getting through the APK doesn't mean your car is in top condition though. It has to be done every year when a car turns 3.

Yeah, it only means that the car is allowed to take part in the traffic.

If you're going to university, you only have a few years of studies left. If not, welcome to unemployment!

The economic crisis doesn't affect me at all, on the opposite, I got a bonus last month.

Just had an hour computing exam. Some questions were quite simple..

What kind of device is a mouse and laser printer ? Input, output or I/O

Or what is a protocol...

Some where more tricky, like explain the fetch execute cycle...

I wouldn't be so happy about it. For me the highschool was like living a dream, the free time, the easy-to-learn things, the friends, the hopes about future... At the university you will learn that life's a bitch, everything cost money and you'll have to start learning for real

It's hard to read, but it looks like "Wij hebben wel een kaartje". (we do have a ticket). Where is this?

World Cup Football 2006, just before the match between the Netherlands-Serbia and Montenegro

It was quite hard to get tickets for World Cup games, so those fans obviously manage to obtain some
