Photos and GPS tracks later…
The building above looks like a church from the outside. But because the church wanted to get rid of it and nobody really wanted to buy it, the director of a nearby hotel (http://www.fahrrad-hotel.de) transformed it into a Cafe.
The evangelic church removed most of the religious symbols before handing over the building but found it too expensive to remove the altar. Consequently, it was transfered into a high table.
I have some more pictures online on Picasa.
I you want to have a coffee, a snack, or a (a little more adapted to the history of the place) a spirit from this is the coolest location in town.
I spent quite some time finding and adapting a LaTeX template for my Ph.D. thesis. My template is based on a class file that was developed over several years by a number of people. Thus, I am far from claiming that this is exclusively my own work. However, I added some details and a brief documentation that might be worth sharing.
This is what the final document might look like: thesis-template.pdf
You may download the template and the documentation in a single ZIP file.
I provide this template as it is and I will not provide any support or warranty.
Not many updates in this blog lately, but for a good reason: Yesterday I submitted my Ph.D. thesis.
