Cafe Aegidius

June 10th, 2010

I spent last weekend in Hann. Münden, where I grew up. Similar to the last 1000 years not much has changed since the last visit about one year ago.

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 ( 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.

Ph.D. thesis template

June 10th, 2010

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.

New York in Tilt/Shift

Sam O’Hare created an amazing time-lapse film with perspectives from New York. Using a tilt/shift lens it looks surreal and like a miniature word.
