Shit happens…

On 31. Oktober 2011, in my flat, Party, QMU, Schottland, Technik, by Marc Iten

Yes, sometimes shit happens. But then… really hard.
Today I tried to log in to a online game.

And then the troubles started. They blocked my account. I did a quick phone call to know what happened. The guy from the support center said, there was a log in try from the United States. But that’s impossible, because I have never been to the USA. So, it was a hacking attack.
The first thing was to call my credit card center and to lock the card. Then I destroyed my card. Because I bought some stuff at ASDA online and I booked some flights with my credit card I have a little respect about this hacking attack.
Now my computer is working for the next few hours to find viruses and some stuff like that. The application has to check more than 500’000 files. That will take a little time. But what can I do during this time? I prefer not to go to the web, because of more attacks…
So, I’m writing this blog and upload it later.

But now to something completely different: tonight is Halloween. And we will go out. Alex, Scott and me like to go out to a Halloween-party. Let’s have some fun. I will take my camera with me, like this, we will have some nice pictures tomorrow.
So, have a nice evening and don’t get scared tonight.

Conrad’s Birthday

On 2. Oktober 2011, in Anlässe, Schottland, Studies, by Marc Iten

Again… two day’s without a post from me…

Friday was Conrad’s birthday. Firstly we had a seminar for about two hours. After that we went to the sea for a BBQ. We were more or less all from SSTH.
Beach BBQ

Conrad & Olivia

Conrad's Birthdaycake

It was a nice BBQ.

Lars bought some one-way-grill for £ 1.00, but the it is not the real BBQ-feeling. Magdalena brought a birthday cake for Conrad. So it was quite a good day at the beach, even if it was not warm enough to have a swim or something like that. And after all stuff had been loaded of sand.

After that we went home to the university, changed quickly and went to Edinburgh for some drinks and so.

We were there with David. It was a funny night. Until every pub was closed. Unfortunately.

But this day I had an other success. I got an unlock for my iPhone. Now I can use it with a UK-sim. For everybody who like to contact me by sms or phone: +44 (0) 74 2524 8307

Musselburgh – Edinburgh – QMU – Musselburgh

On 26. September 2011, in QMU, Rugby, Schottland, by Marc Iten

Hello,

Today we woke up early. So for some of you it not will be early.

We woke up at 8 a.m. It’s the first time we woke up such early here in Scotland. Then we had our second lecture in Strategic Management.
After this one hour we went to Musselburgh. Conrad had to bring back his kilt. We just were in this shop and took the next bus to Edinburgh. There we had a sub at Subway and looked after a shop, who is unlocking iPhones. Unfortunately there were no shop like this. Actually there were some… but not for my iPhone, because it is too new (even when it is more than one year old). I like to use my iPhone here in UK like at home. But that’s not possible with this SIM-lock. So I decided to let unlock it regularly at the orange shop in Switzerland.
After this annoying experience we went back to QMU to prepare us for the next rugby-session. It was a hard training. We had our first lecture in full-contact-rugby. We tried to defend our line and the other group attacked us. It was really hard. After just ten minutes we were so tired, we already had a short break. Now my left hand hurts and Conrad’s knee is also a little hurting (someone stepped on it).
Now I’m so tired, I just like to watch a movie and go to bed then…
So then see you tomorrow.

(and no picture today… I’m sorry)

A real scottish welcome

On 24. September 2011, in Schottland, by Marc Iten

Hey out there,

Today was not so an exceptional day. It was quite nice outside, the was shining, it was not so windy. Just a nice day. And on such a nice day Conrad’s girlfriend came here to meet us. And of course Conrad picked her up at the airport. Like a real gentleman, in a real schottish uniform:

I think she liked to be welcomed like this.

In the evening we decided to cook and after that I liked to do a „Zopf“ (swiss kind of bread). So I Moneygram agent made a Zopf.

Tomorrow mornig we can taste my homemade Zopf with jam, ham and swiss cheese (I found some at ASDA).

Tomorrow I will tell you, how our Zopf was. So, see you then.
