A Conversation for Vienna, Austria

Ferris Wheel

Post 1


Outside of the city in the amusement park is a huge Ferris Wheel. Definitely a must do while visiting the city.

Also, word of advice on money. If you arrive by train at nite, don't expect to be able to change money. You can't.

SPINY (aka Ship's Cook)

It's the famous one that appeared in the film "The Third Man". It only has half the number of carriages you'll see in the movie though, because fire damaged a whole load of them during the war. If you want to be really swanky (a.k.a. broke afterwards), you can have dinner on one of the carriages. Don't know how many revolutions you get though, and you'd be lucky to get through your starter in just one...

Just for the money thing - the whole city is full of ATMs, called "Bankomat" where you can easily get cash with your credit card. day and night of course.

Hello soft whistle. Sorry to interrupt, but I've been told to use my Guardian Angel powers to help a 'newbie' to H2G2 along. You may refuse my advice if you like, but if you have any ?'s, don't hesitate to ask. Actually, Galaxy Babe wants us to take TEN 'newbies under our wings, but I'm just going for one at a time(I have a life away from this damn computer!smiley - smiley) Cheers and "GET TO WORK ON YOUR HOMEPAGE!!!smiley - smiley)

You can call me TC

As you haven't activated your page, I can't post you there. Maybe you'll read this:

Announcing: GerManiaConnection - the hub of the German web is here: GerManiaConnection Who's Who: http://www.h2g2.com/A448328

Anyone who has ever contributed to a German topic, or who comes from Germany, is listed here and will receive this posting on their page - in this unprecedented launch campaign.

Please do not pursue this thread (that would lead to far to many conversations going on at once), but go straight to the GerManiaConnection to see what it's about. In case you're wondering how you got to be on the list…. well, I just did a few searches (with the help of Bossel) and checked all conversations on German entries, and have included the editors. Which makes it not quite a comprehensive list, but it can be improved upon.

For any of you who have, on your own pages, or in your own articles, links to my page or to the GerManiaConnection that existed provisionally up to now, please note the new numbers: My researcher number is now U154942 and the GerManiaConnection is now A448328…. See below.

I appreciate that some may not want to be included, or know someone else who ought to be. So get writing to me about it.

And don't forget - we're getting together in the Black Forest area around the beginning of December. Here are all the links:

BEKANNTMACHUNG - Das deutsche Netz, die GerManiaConnection, steht - das Zentrum des Netzes befindet sich hier:

GerManiaConnection Who's Who: http://www.h2g2.com/A448328

Jeder, der sich jemals zu einem Thema über Deutschland, Österreich oder die Schweiz geäußert hat, oder der in einen der drei Ländern wohnt, erhält diese Posting in einer bisher einmaligen Kampagne.

Bitte, verfolge nicht diesem Thread, sonst gibt es Dutzende von Einzelgesprächen, gehe lieber zur GerManiaConnection und guck, was sich da tut.

Wie kam diese Liste zustande (und wie kommst Du darauf?) - Ich habe, mit Bossel's Hilfe - ein paar Suchläufe durchgeführt und die deutschen Beiträge sowie Foren durchsucht, und rechnete die Editors auch noch mit rein. Die Liste ist bestimmt nicht vollständig, aber da wirst Du gefragt...

Falls Du aus der Liste wieder gestrichen werden willst, oder jemanden kennst, der dahin gehört, schreibt mir bitte - links sind auf der GerManiaConnection dafür vorhanden.

Wer einen Link zu meiner Seite oder zur bisherigen GerManiaConnection auf seiner Seite hat, bitte die neuen Nummern einfügen: Meine Personal-Seite hat jetzt die Nummer U154942 und die GerManiaConnection (s. oben) hat die A448328.

Nicht vergessen : Treffen Anfang Dezember im Nordschwarzwald - Details über Engländer, oder hier:
