So yesterday was the first evening/night for me to look at some things in Berlin. Even though I’ve been here for a couple of times I never really took the time to explore Mitte, so Sven Guckes was kind enough to give me and a guest from Denmark, a tour through the city.
While I usually take the S-Bahn or the Underground, we were using the DB call-a-bike service, as I don’t have a bike on my own here yet. It’s really cool if you need a bike just occasionally, and the bikes had surprisingly good quality. Sven took us through the city, brought us to a good and cheap pizza place and ultimately we ended up iat Dussmann, a big book/cd/cultural stuff store in the famous Friedrichsstraße.
Also, Sven was kind enough to introduce me to the location where our new collegues from Nokia Gate 5 reside:
PS: If you happen to get weird crashes with Amarok or any KDE 4 application where the app don’t actually crash, but seem to properly shut down unexpectedly, then don’t use the distributors Qt 4.4.0 packages. I lost almost an entire hour on that, because I was too lazy to compile my own Qt version at home 🙁 .
Hmmm, why is that fix not in a qt-copy patch? We’re applying the qt-copy patches in Fedora, so if the fix was there, it would just work. Requiring to rebuild Qt in debug mode can’t really be the right solution.
IÂ´m the guest from Denmark. CouldnÂ´t find you in Dussmann to say thanks for a nice evening., and I was soooo tired I didnÂ´t want to wait.
Enjoy Berlin. Maybe IÂ´ll see you there.
At least the stock Kubuntu packages have that Problem.
That’s allright. I just didn’t want to publish your name without knowing you are fine with it. It was nice to meet you. I hope you had a good sleep 🙂
