I’m drunk, but not so drunk I can’t post via email.

To whom it may concern:

Just because I don’t hop onto every random Facebook app you throw at me doesn’t mean I like you less. It just means I don’t give a crap about that particular app.

Sorry to harsh your mellow, but that’s the way it is. If you seriously believe your app invitation will change my life, feel free to send me a message.

That is all.

Put enough tech into a small handheld device and it creates a dimple in the fabric of reality, which manifests as an attractive force for geeks.

reviewing SOX documents. The pain!!!

The iPhone is brilliantly designed, has a supremely satisfactory user experience, but it feels, in a way, like the smartphone segment’s Rain Man – wondrous storage, polished performance, but low social skills and the inability to do simple things that most people take for granted.

Finally got connected. No thanks to Bredband2’s utterly horrible customer support.

On the debit side, my dad and I went to Shurgard to shift our crap to a smaller storage space. Of course, the idiots hadn’t unlocked it. I’m gonna get medieval over the phone tomorrow.

this promises to be an interesting day, for Chinese values of “interesting”

finally got time to listen to Lloyd Cole @ the BBC

observations for 2007-08-28

I’m having trouble installing the latest version of mIRGGI. Perhaps I should just pay for WirelessIRC.

w00t! Lloyd Cole, live at the BBC! Pity I can’t put it on my iPod until tomorrow.

I will let others try out Bloglines Beta. Feed reading is too important to leave to beta software…

glad to be meeting fkoehn tonight

Today was the first day of autumn: cool, yet sunny. Today was also the day that I realised that we still have way too much stuff.

observations for 2007-08-25

It’s now two weeks since I contacted the building’s ISP and they still haven’t been able to connect us to the wider net. Another household has the same issue.

Frankly, if your ISP can’t even connect new subscribers, perhaps you should be looking at alternatives.

Seems that posting from gmail results in dupes. Checking from gmail mobile.

Spoilers should be avoided. Right now I’m having a hard time staying away from Wikipedia. I’m listening to Dan Simmon’s The Terror and really want to read more about the Franklin expedition in 1845. But doing so would reveal the ultimate fate of the expedition, and right now it’s up in the air what will happen.

I’m pretty sure that no supernatural giant polar bear attacked the ships, but who knows?

More on the Iceland whale fishing moratorium.

observations for 2007-08-24


Really, that right there should be a clear indicator of how ill regarded Java development has become that people are willing to embrace the insanity that is Erlang in order to avoid using it.

Saw that Iceland has stopped granted whaling rights as the demand for whale meat is too low. After all the furor from environmentalists and the matching anger of the whalers, it turns out that very few people actually want to eat whale meat.

Another victory for the free market!

I think I’ve fixed my posting-by-email script. This is a little test.

Apparently it worked!

This is the best picture I took during my vacation. Possibly the best picture I’ve ever taken ;)
