Cocoaheads Aachen

Yesterday evening was the first meeting of [Cocoaheads Aachen][cha]. The entire thing is an informal meeting for people who develop with [Cocoa][cocoa] in the Aachen region. It’s being held by RWTH Aachen’s [Media Computer Group][mcg], but is open for anyone who is not at the RWTH as well.

New Comic Section

One of the plans when building the [gallery for railroad pictures][train] was to move the comics over there as well. I finally did that, the new section is under the old link

On the Rainslick Precipice of Darkness

What a week. First of all, we had [Star Wars Legacy of the Force: Invincible][inv]. Then there was [Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystall Skull][indy]. Now, I finally finished [Penny Arcade][pa]’s game [On The Rainslick Precipice of Darkness Episode One][rainslick]. As a short summary: The game isn’t Indy, but it’s still lots of fun.

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

Fun fact: I had to look up the movie’s title, because I was only calling it Indiana Jones 4. Anyway, I just returned from the cinema.

However, I have a new (short) review online now!

In the Eisenbahnkurier, a german railroad magazine, there is a low-volume discussion about why there are too little new people interested in model railroads. Everybody agrees about the general problem, which is that too little young people and children enter the hobby and stay there. The question remains: Why? As a more or less young person who is interested in model railroads, I thought I’d offer my point of view about this as well.
