  2. Looks like a delivery vehicle of some sort. Nice hot pizza perhaps??

  3. Don and Krise: "Nice hot pizza perhaps?"

    Maybe, but Tui is a travel company. Nice hot travel brochures?

  4. Damit darf man nicht zu schnell und scharf in die Kurven gehen. Dient wohl eher als Werbung für ein Reisebüro?

  5. Really strange vehicle, but looks rather friendly:)

  6. I would like it more without the TUI advertising.

    Hm, the click on the photo downloaded the file ... by design?

  10. Their advertisement should read: 'In case there's no parking space it fits through your house door"

  11. As the TUI add means nothing to me, I like it the way it is! :-)

  12. I meant: 'the TUI ad'... sorry!

  13. Hi there,

    I like these small vehicles. Think that they're funny and friendly. They remind me of Italy. I don't really know why-:)

    Have a wonderful weekend!

    Best regards
    Asta

  14. I've never seen one of these before! I wonder if they are licensed the same as cars.

  15. Thanks for the comments.

    Joan Elizabeth: I guess your travel companies must find other surfaces to stick their ads on.

    Frau G: An der Stabilität habe ich auch bezweifelt. Es ist wohl Werbung. Aber was bewahren sie hinten auf?

    joo: Yes, it looks pedestrian-friendly. Should van and pedestrian collide, the van would surely suffer the most damage.

    Martina: What would you paint on your admobile, then?

    Ah ... the download problem. I noticed this a week or so ago. It happened on my own blog and others, such as, I think, yours that use Blogger itself to host the photos (or Picasa Web, it is the same behind the scenes). I saw it in some browsers, but not in others. Curious, I did some experimentation. In the end, I deleted the cache in Firefox and all the cookies from blogspot. After that, things worked as before -- clicking a photo displays the large version in Firefox itself.

    I have no idea why Google started to use cookies like this, or how many of my blog viewers it effects. I hope I do not have to move over all my photos to Flickr or modfiy all my past entries for my viewers to see the larger versions again.

    Gallow: Thanks.

    Cezar and Léia: True, this would be useful in a big city, but the photo is actually taken in the tiny town of Sankt Ingbert.

    Andreea: Then you can lay it on its side and use it as a coffee table?

    JM: You mostly see the name TUI in Germany, but it is the biggest travel firm in Europe and probably sends lots of British and Germans to Portugal.

    Asta: Yes, Italy seems to be the king of small cars in Europe. I wonder which firm made this van. It does not look like it was Fiat.

    Stine in Ontario: They are a rarity over here, too. Hence the photo -- and their value as a surface for ads, I guess.

  16. Hm, I think any kind of an ad on an "ape" is a sacrilege, ;-).

  17. Ah, just read all of your comment, I think it's an Ape

  18. regarding the bug: deleting cookies does nothing for chrome or ie. So far yours is the only blog I encountered (okay, I just tried with five or six others ... I would guess that 99% use blogger/picasa). Let's see if this becomes contagious :-S.

    I am guilty of being a bit different here. I wrote a program that generates blog entries automatically from photos on my hard disk. My program set the link on the Piaggo Ape to point to http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_sImjdONuKTs/SyCgXjYWt-I/AAAAAAAACAc/Tqk8lhK7ScE/200912063057_1.jpg. The standard web-based editor would have generated a link to http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_sImjdONuKTs/SyCgXjYWt-I/AAAAAAAACAc/Tqk8lhK7ScE/s1600-h/200912063057_1.jpg -- the same with “/s1600-h/” in the middle. This looks like it is going to be a JPEG file, but is, in fact, an HTML page. If people find the first link generates a download and only the second shows the image in the browser, then I will have to go through all my entries and add “/s1600-h/”. I was rather hoping that Google would revert to the old behaviour with images and I would not have to do that. Moreover, I use Firefox exclusively, and since I deleted the blogspot cookies, I no longer see the problem myself.
