Welcome to East Germany

East Germany. A country where you can be detained without trial or stripped of your rights on the word of a government official. A country where they open a file on every citizen and track their every move. A country run by an authoritarian, supposedly left-wing government.

But hey, don't worry about that, look at the sporting successes.

Can I go home please?

100 Bonus Geek Points

Hello. Yes, I'm still here despite my recent silence. Just had to point out that I've just gained 100 Bonus Geek Points by being mentioned in an O'Reilly book:

I reviewed Chapter 6 (Exception Handling - take a look, I think you'll find it's one of the best ;-)) so Steven kindly thanked me in the Acknowledgements.

I guess the next step is to appear on the front of an O'Reilly book. Only my writing skills are non-existent. Oh well.
