  1. I really like the subtle musical reference to a visually similar moment in the Sir Francis and the Unicorn scene at 3:56. The trumpet echoes the horn motif in the former cue (here, it's even tracked in!).
  2. Test 3 (own computer) Download: 34,7 Mbps Upload: 11,0 Mbps Latency: 19 ms
  3. Test 1 Download: 15.22 Mbps Upload: 17.31 Mbps Latency: 20 ms Test 2 (different website) Download: 15.14 Mbps Upload: 12.31 Mbps Latency: 131 ms This is on my mom's computer, though. I suppose the wireless adapter isn't quite optimal.
  4. Title says it all. Any recommendations are welcome.
  5. Your English is okay, don't worry. Yeah, teaching is a fantastic and very satisfactory profession, I think. Teachers can have a huge influence on people, stretching a lot further than the restraints of their own disciplines.
  6. Hehe. I guess I could simply pick either and be done with it, really, although I do think physics is a more general and broader field. And perhaps more satisfactory in its combination of the abstract and the concrete. Meant sarcastically?
  7. I think I want to do something with physics and math - research, teaching, whatever. I'm not really interested in a regular 9 to 5 job.
  8. Some reflections on my motivations: Mathematics: I'm interested in higher mathematics, specifically concepts like topology, analysis and (linear) algebra. Also, the university I'll study at offers a minor in Physics and Astronomy with courses like quantum mechanics, electromagnetism and extragalactic astronomy and also offers a MSc in Mathematical Physics, allowing you to take many theoretical physics courses (e.g. quantum computing, quantum black holes and holography, quantum field theory, astrophysical simulations, physics of galaxies, etc.). As you can see, there's a substantial overlap with the Physics and Astronomy programme. When desired, I could still get a MSc in Physics and Astronomy or even a MSc in Mechanical Engineering after getting a MSc in Mathematical Physics. Physics and Astronomy: I've been interested in physics since reading books on astronomy in my childhood. I'm incredibly curious about quantum mechanics, quantum field theory, astronomy, etc. A BSc in Physics contains more than just those courses, however (think solid state physics, thermal physics, sub-atomic physics). The technological and practical aspects are very attractive. When desired, I could still get a MSc in Mathematics or even a MSc in Engineering Physics after getting a MSc in Physics and Astronomy.
  9. It's the age of people using their enormous wit to ponder the least intelligent of creations.

    I tried to do the same to Wallin's Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade: http://picosong.com/ipTg/ Compare to the original recording here:
  11. I can't even add you as a friend.
  12. I'm sorry - I'm a bit grumpy today. Never mind!
  13. The original title for that cue is Homage à Maxie - I assume Spielberg temp-tracked it with Max Steiner's barbershop source cue in Treasure of the Sierra Madre. Nice little reference.
