The trip to Weimar was pretty cool. I got to ride on Deutsche Bahn’s ICE high-speed trains. Nice ride. A small screen at the back of the car showed the speed, and I didn’t notice it going above 160 kph, but still. 160 kph is all right by me, especially when I consider it a minor miracle when a Czech train gets about 80kph.

On the trainspotting tip, I understand that one of the unintended side effects of the Pendolino trains slated for service on the Prague-Děčín line is that all that tilting gets some people motion sick. Anybody know anything about that?

Today I have more meetings with the Berlin-based developers working on the LiveSupport HTML UI, and then I catch an afternoon train back to Kafkaville. Gotta love the power outlets on these trains.
