train schedule bookmark

Note to self: There’s no use bookmarking the train schedule information that can be reached from the travel information/booking site because they produce this informative error message (with page title “error”) later on.

choose your internet access

Translation:

Please make your choice:
24h unlimited access to entertainment and internet: 0 CHF
24h internet access: 0 CHF
1h internet access: 0 CHF

A hard choice for picking the internet access options in a Swiss hotel (with intenet included in the room price)… should anyone really prefer the third and default option?

By the way, the hotel – the Eden Palace – also offered dozens of movies and music albums for free, accessible via the TV that was extensively equipped for such hotel use (and even greeted me by name1 when I first entered my room) – however, it was a relatively small CRT model, no flat screen.

  • Moderation: Comments from first-time commentators must be approved manually before they appear.
  • Behave yourself! No insults, no illegal content, etc.! Should go without saying, don't you agree...?
  • Website: I don't mind blogs with ads, but purely commercial links are not welcome and will be deleted. Just like pure spam comments.
  • E-mail notification on new comments: You will have to activate this function once with a link in an automatically sent confirmation mail. These notifications can be disabled again with the link in every mail, of course.
  • Twitter: If you got a Twitter account, you can enter your Twitter name (with or without the @, doesn't matter) which will then be displayed next to any comment (including old ones) that contain the same e-mail address. (Which also means that you must fill in that e-mail field.)
