New Box

This weekend I built myself a new Computer. My old one (a Dell XPS 720) was showing its age even though I had been upgrading it along the way.


Here are the components I used. I bought them all from


Corsair CC-9011023-WW Carbide 200R PC-Gehäuse (midi-ATX, 4x 3,5 HDD, 7x PCI-e, 1x USB 3.0) schwarz


Power Supply

The New System

I can say that I am quite happy with the new system. Windows 8.1 installed without a problem. The drivers provided by MSI work quite well and the overclocking tools are very nice. All in all, the system is very quite even though the case is not sound isolated at all.

Naturbad Furth

Heute fahre ich rüber zum Naturbad Furth. Dort ist unsere Familie nun Mitglied. Ich fahre gleich mal da hin um unsere Ausweise machen zu lassen. Ich freue mich schon auf die Badesaison 2012. Hier sind auch gleich die Bilder für die Ausweise.

Is the USPTO violating Patents it granted itself?

I was reading a news story about the patents US-Patent 5,838,906 and US-Patent 7,599,985. The patents are about:

Distributed hypermedia method and system for automatically invoking external application providing interaction and display of embedded objects within a hypermedia document

As I understand the patents, they are (among other things) about browser plug-in. If you follow the links  to the patents (either US-Patent 5,838,906 or US-Patent 7,599,985), you come to pages on the United States Patent and Trademark Office. At the top of the page there are a couple of red buttons, one of them is labeled “Images”. If you click on that button, you come to a page that requires an Apple QuickTime plug-in.

Apple of course is one of the companies being sued by Eolas Technologies for violating the patent.

I found this quite amusing.
