Lol, I thought someone had written something on my 20-euro banknote and then I realize it's the signature of Mario Draghi. I'm used to that fancy signature of Jean-Claude Trichet. I don't remember banknotes with the signature of Wim Duisenberg (we didn't have the euro yet), but it looks a little crazy.

Here it's plenty of 10s and 20s with Draghi signature. Duisenber signature are becaming rare, I saw maybe 1 or 2 in the past year.

Now you just need to find a suitable road.

That's the new park and ride. Park your regular car at a rest area and ride your überwide car on the freeway or multi-lane arterial, but that's the only roads they fit on.

I have seen some 10 and 20 euro notes with Draghi signature now, but the first one I saw was from my cousin, who received it in Malaga. And there are now €100 and €200 notes with Draghi signature, too!

I remember the times when my PCs hard disk drive had a total strage space of 6,4 GB (while my cousins had just 1,01 GB ).

Hopefully high capacity SD cards become cheaper. I find € 40 - 50 for a 16 GB card too much. You can almost buy a low-end photo camera for that kind of money.

I wonder why the technology can't make mobile and laptop batteries that last much longer than the current ones.

Because "the public" demands ever thinner smartphones, which reduces the battery size. I have a netbook with an 11 hour battery.

My first PC had 230 MB hard disk and 4 MB of RAM, no CD or soundcard. It cost 3000 DEM with 14 inch Philips monitor (the biggest one you could get for a normal money). Installation of Windows 3.11 was on eight 3,5" diskettes. Later I bought also OS/2 Warp (it had also an internet browser), which was delivered on 34 diskettes.

Before that I had Commodore C64 with a cassette recorder.

Then Ebay should be your friend:
http://www.ebay.nl/sch/i.html?_from=...All-Categories

If I find local stores too expensive, I buy stuff over net. Once I even bought a snow shovel from Germany, it was cheaper with delivery cost than here in the shop. And it was delivered into Slovenia in less than 24 hours from a local Bavarian department store.

But taking into account technological progress in other fields of electronics (like storage memories) we should have also batteries that are much smaller and more long-lasting than 10 years ago. In the 90s the biggest external magnetic storage, the floppy disc, could held only 1,38MB. Now we have micro SD as small as a thumbnail that carry 8GB. My first PC in 1998 had a 4GB HD. 10 years later it became normal to have 1TB.

I recently bough a replacement battery for may phone (mine was damaged) on Ebay for just 9,49€ (it's virtually impossible to buy certain kinds of phone batteries in shops). The seller was from Sezana, Slovenia but the enveloped I got had an Italian stamp and was stamped in Venice! Maybe he was an Italian who wanted to skip our taxes.

Batteries are really tough. The energy density is really not that easy to increase. The Li-ion batteries have some 20 times lower energy density per liter than petrol.

I have no idea where he bought it. I recently bought a 32GB Micro-SD card for about 40 euros at the local Mediamarkt. I'm pretty sure a 16GB normal SD-card is a lot cheaper...
