Friday en route to Eindhoven

Forgot to mention the burglar attempt last Friday evening at the neighbours house. Franny was lying in our bed and she heard a noise. When she got up she looked outside (it was only 20:45, so lot's of light) and she saw two young men in the backyard of Gerd and Ellen. She called out and they ran away. They were trying to pry open the backdoor with a screwdriver (they left plenty marks). Luckily they didn't succeed. The neighbours were on holiday, so we called the police and the brother of Ellen. Funny thing was that Ger's brother came to feed the cat. And I thought he was Ellen's brother ... so he was a bit startled when I approached him on the street. He didn't have a clue what I was talking about ;-)

Well, I went to the Software Development Day organised by ASML in Rosmalen. The 'house of the future' (Huis van de Toekomst). Sorry to say the house ain't what it used to be .... a bit worn down. http://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chriet_Titulaer (I thought he passed away a few years ago, but not according to Wikipedia) was the initiator of this 'house'.

Anyway the MBTI experience was not as bad as I thought it would be (http://www.koorneef.net/node/620). Prof. Robert Hooijberg did a good job. Intelligent man. Dutch, but lived/studied/worked in the US for quite a while.
My result: ENTJ
Extravert 27 (score) vs. Introvert 5
Sensing 3 vs. iNtuition 22
Thinking 21 vs. Feeling 2
Judging 19 vs Perceiving 19

Only 1.8 % of the US population has this type. But for the group of yesterday that percentage was much higher (around 13 % IIRC). I think if I would fill in the questionaire again it would give a different result.

I left the event early because I had to get up early as usual in the morning.
