Yes, the A15/N15 is a nice drive. I'm sure that Chris has pictures or a video of it

Furthermore, virtually every motorway in the Ruhrgebiet runs through industrial area. The A2 (between Bottrop and Dortmund), A40 (near Duisburg) and the A42 (entire length) give some nice industrial views.

Yeah, I've got also Valentine's gift from our administrators in work, when I came today to work I've found that SSC is blocked by ISA server (also e-buddy messenger, but that was instantly replaced by imo.im so no harm done except SSC), grrr, I don't understand them they don't block Megaupload from where we are DLing gigabytes of data but they are blocking SSC where are just photos.

At work? Maybe they want you to do some actual work instead of reading and posting on SSC. (megaupload can run in the background)

well there aren't blocked so many sites (almost everything is allowed, I'm visiting daily about 50 sites and maybe 5 of them are blocked and that choice is pretty funny, for instance Engadget is blocked, Gizmodo allowed, Slashfood is blocked, Kitchn is allowed and they block even small local foodblog, same with some local IT news sites zive.cz blocked, zive.sk allowed, their filter make no sense at all), that blocking SSC is pure bad joke, I can access almost any warez forum or DDL sites I want, but can't now SSC, well at least I will finally start reading Lonely Planet I DLed and preparing for trip

is there some SSC mirror or just different domain than .com or some good anonymizer thorugh which is possible to login to SSC? (I don't even need to redirect images, none of image sites is blocked, I need just anonymize and login into SSC without images)

and people from IT don't need to take care about my work, I work much more than them for much less, at least I'll be out of there in few months (summer at last)

I was just kidding.

Don't know how you can get around it, though. Did you try proxies?

Incredible!

VERONA - A 68 year old Japanese tourist was killed last night on the A4 motorway between Soave and Montecchio Maggiore as he walked towards Venice on the second lane!. He walked away from the rest of the group during a stop in a service area (Scaligera). He disappeared without leaving a trace to the point of forcing his wife to report the disappearance to the police station in Verona. He was run over by a SUV threw him on the third lane where he was hit by other cars. Nothing is known of the causes that brought the poor tourist to leave his party.

Currently 32.600 people. 55.000 in 1990, but I guess things are automated.
