The Plant

I have thought long about what to write in my tonight’s blog entry.

I had no idea at all, even not yesterday. … No idea, nooooo idea.

Well, until I saw the newspaper and discussed it with a friend today.

Bush. Now, over here, he is refered as the most powerful and important human on the world.

I wonder…why? Is it because USA is the biggest country? Is it because a plant got re-elected? I have no idea.

But well, let’s go on with the Presidential Inauguaration:

They had a very good article about Bush in the newspaper. He has been asked to do no party at all in memory of the Iraq war, and the reporter wrote: “Well, he seems to know Bush very badly! Instead he has done the most expensive party ever. Over 40 Million USD!”Ah and he added, he did that beginning party in the state where he got the fewest supporters-. He said: “In our eyes ironic, but in USA not impossible”. he got only 9% They also wrote in the average he danced on each ball not even 3 minutes”

Now, in his speech, he used very often the words “freedom and liberty” as you can see in this movie. They count down the Freedom and Liberty words he uses 🙂

Their dungeon master 🙂

And bloggers – The 2nd!

2 days no update, that means it’s time for another update to my blog!

Well, I have improved a bit the design of my blog. The side pannel should always stay in shape, even if you watch a direct linkes entry. And at 1024 x 768, even from watching inside my homepage frame!

I have also moved some of the link buttons to my own webspace which speeds up the loading time of my blog!

Also the homepage Blogs Around The World caught my attention, which focusses on (quoted) “English-written sites (that at least occasionally focus on country-specific news) for as many countries as possible.”.

A very interesting page, I think!

I also found on the ICQ2GO! Panel Site a reference to this blog about 9/11.

Also 2 Iraq News blogs: here and here.

I also found a (LOL!) XXX blog dated back from 2001 and a viagra shop blog!

Maybe should delete those blogs! I don’t think they normally allow this!

Unfortunately most of my fave blogs didn’t get an update since January, 13th. 🙁

GMail The 4th!

The GMail Team replied to me again:

“Hello Joerg,

The Gmail Team

This mean for me, my emails in the spam folder are lost 🙁

I have replied asking if there is at least any way to rescue my emails!!! 🙁

I hope they will reply back once more and rescue them!

Wish me luck, cross your fingers for me, please!!

Promotion For My Blog! :)

I began a bit with promotion for my blog, and a part of this is also my animated button for my blogger:

I also added myself to two webrings and one explosion service, blus a real Blog Banner Exchange and I have added myself to several web directories for blogs!

Also now you can rate my blog below!

I don’t exspect much from the blogger webrings, but a lot from the banner exchange and I have mixed feelings about the web directories!

The references to all services are gently seperated with a hr line. O:-)

Also I have signed my blog into search engines (international).

Let me know your opinion!

Comment on it! 🙂

Google, Mess Number 3!

Hi Ho!

Holy crap!

After making terror emailing to GMail, becaue I still cannot access to my Spam Folder, I finally received a reply from them:

“Hello Joerg,

Well, looks like no solution soon? Since after 30 days all emails in spam folder gets deleted, this will probably happen :'(

Holy Crap!

Oh my father, what a crap!

I have spent incredible much time with my blog’s template today, because I messed up the blog’s font displaying! It worked fine in MSIE, but not in Opera (standard Times New Roman got displayed instead!).

Believe me, that reset edit and copy & paste from a backup I did, did not help it! I had to use one of the default templates and re-do all the changes manually which I did, arghhh! I hate that! I have no idea why my blog stopped working properly in opera, but holy crap!; It works again!

I did a clean copy & paste of my blog’s template, and I wrote a document with all the lines I have changed it’s available as a 7-Zip archive here.

Man, this scared me all half to death, I swear you!

I also received my first comment from another blog user, thanks! 🙂

When International Communication Goes Bad

Today’s Topic of my blog entry, because I just find it funny.

What do you do if you have a problem and the company you want to reach is outside of your 4 walls? Right, you do a call to abroad.

So, that’s the moment when Joerg drinks something, goes into the bathroom, makes “ahem”, and sets up his best English he has.

First story: Email account: (that sure was years ago!).

I could no longer login for days! So, looking up the White Pages of USA and ring them up!

So you know how all this is, you as a costumer say who you are and what your problem is, and normally the other party says “Okay then….!”

But if it was a normal call, I wouldn’t write it in my blog, so it was more like, that I was explaining and every 5 seconds I got interrupted by a “Hello Sir!”, I mean is that friendly costumer support? The lady told me later: “We have no costumer support!”.

Dumb! Is that a reason to be unfriendly to me?!

Second story: Wanted to speak a worker working in Norway.

I found out the number, rang the company up, it was like:

He: “Who is speaking?”


He: “From which company?”

“No company, an individual person.”

and in this very moment, you recognized how he begings to sound very bored, because I am not company! How could I dare to speak to him!

The third story is the most weird one ever. Again USA:

She: “Who is this?”


She: “Joerg!!!!!!!!!!! How beautiful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

I really thought “Oh my father, am I that VIP to freak that much out because of my name?”

And then I had the feeling like she thinks she speaks to her little cousin or something.

Also nice and interesting, and sometimes really amazing are calls to friends living abroad or just people who do not reply to emails.

Absolutely amazing was the following story (hint: I have no ISDN):

I want to ring up somebody in Norway.

Nobody answers the phone. So I give up on it.

10 minutes later my phone rings. I pick up the receiver and a woman asks me:

“who are you?”

where I reply to with: “Pardon? You are calling me? Tell me first who you are :)”

“I dialed this number”

“Maybe you have got the wrong number then?”

“No no, I saw this on my display.”

“Ah, now I see, are you from Norway?”


“Ah ok, I wanted to speak to your son.”

“Ok, no problem, one minute, please.”

Later I got told, they thought I was a relative from Japan calling 🙂

Also, what I am always sorry for, is, when I ring up people and their family members didn’t know I would call.

So I end up in asking for sister/son/daughter, blah.

So, for example a call to a shared flat in Romania. (Everybody who ever did a phone call to Romania, knows; the tones of the Romanian phone system makes your ears hurt if you aren’t too careful!

So it made “click” and I begin with the usual: “Hello, I am… and would like to speak to…”

and in return, no responce. Just silence. I waited some seconds… still nothing.

Then I took the initiative and asked:

“Did I dial the wrong number?”

and suddenly a voice says:

“No the number is correct, but she is not here.”

A sign! Somebody said something. I am really sorry, it wasn’t my plan to shock some nice boy from Romania because he had to speak English with me.

(happened also to me with siblings from 2 people in Poland).

Last story is a phone call to Ghana where an automatic speech told me:

“We are regreted for paying the telephone bill.”
