Squatters

leave a comment »

An empty flat was occupied by (strange) squatters in our building. Just recently they got evicted and kicked out .. and now they (don’t know who) transformed the flat in what looks like some high-security area ..

Burgers, Kindles & Texas

with one comment

Yes, this is one glorious (self-made) burger of which I just ate two of.

What’s new? This week we got a paper accepted at the conference ACSAC in Austin (somehow all conferences seem in Texas..) in December. This is very good news and gives me some more material to write up in my thesis (which I should start soon..).

I also ordered an amazon Kindle (ebook reader). Once it arrived I will post an in-depth review here!

Over Under

leave a comment »

More and more this develops into a monthly blog! Because of that and because I have a new, nice android phone I might try and change this blog into a picture blog where I upload pictures from my mobile on the go. Me and you will see if I’m going to do that or not.

The picture above is the new Overground line which opened in the last weeks in east London. Funny enough, the overground at this station is below the underground …

With the opening of the Overground another mystery was solved: what the large opening, pictured below, is for. It’s a tunnel opened for that new line .. and we can hear trains passing in front of our house every other minute! But it’s actually not too bad.

I have a lot of new pictures, however they are on the old phone which is archived already! Oh Well.

Jobwise, this wednesday I have a talk at kings college at a workshop on information flow and security.

Some people complained that there’s too many food pictures on this blog, for that reason I end this post with a nice plate of pasta I made recently:

Heron & Bratwurst Sausage

The Heron Tower at Liverpool street is gaining height quickly! There’s a couple of other large, new buildings under construction in central London.

Walkers is producing crisps in all kinds of strange flavours (including yorkshire pudding). Here’s the German Bratwurst Sausage (?) sausage:
