Hi to all! I'm finally back from my trip to Milan and thank God it wasn't too hot there, around +30°C, the hottest place was Ljubljana +34°C.

Yeah, greetings from Africa, I'm sweating like a pig here. Serbs like making fun of us that we live in Alps like some eskimos. They obviously haven't heard of global warming.

I thought Chris was in the brig, btw.

well, I have other idea of fancy feaures...

fancy feature is an optical tuning, a light weight weel, or more than 100HP engine...

and these features can cost even few 1000 euros...

I use the GPS about 3-5000km per year (on unknown areas) and it makes my travels a real joyride (instead of nervous map browsing and way finding...)

so its PRICELESS...

I had to manually input Kolding to let my GPS navigate to Stockholm. His direct route would take the Puttgarden ferry, and alternatives either led me via Frederikshavn - Göteborg or Sassnitz - Trelleborg

I want to use simply motorways, so via E45 and E20 in Denmark. Apparantly, this simple route is too hard for a TomTom...

Yeah, I invested in traffic congestion stocks, and I'm on my way for a hostile IKEA takeover...

What video editing software are you using for roadmovies, Chris?

I would like something pretty simple and fast.

hmmm, it seems it doesn't like h.264 videos. What a shame, it is widely used. Any alternative?

Actually, I think IKEA is run from Småland, and is owned by a foundation based in the Netherlands. The world's biggest IKEA is located in Stockholm though. In Kungens Kurva just south of town, next to the E4.

also it means '****' as a sweaword (and it's written 'kurwa'), not only to describe prostitute in vulgar way, I think it's a common word for slavic languages though
