On the airport bus to Stockholm. Viking packed off for a week at his grandparents. Feels strange


Man this bus is uncomfortably warm


Contributing to the current Twitter overcapacity problem by twittering about it. Meta-fail


The music I like the most is more than 20 years old, or might as well be


I wonder if the fly travelling with me on the bus is a harbinger of a global pandemic. That would kinda suck


Stuck at Haga in a traffic queue. This never happens with the train

Oh IM, where art thou?


In queue for a double kabanoss from Günthers


Finally got to order, 2 helpings of the hot sauce, strong mustard und saurkraut!


I find it “amusing” that Outlook hangs while searching through mails. That is, if “amusing” is a synonym to “bollocks” in your language


what a semi! great play by Turkey by the Germans won in the end. Here’s hoping Russia will win tomorrow!

O Canon repair person, where are thou?


now the Swedish anti-piracy group thinks the French 3-strikes law against filesharers is “basically good”

suspecting Alastair Reynold’s “House of Suns” is a previously refused work now published to take advantage of his current status


Spain-France is on, least interesting of the quarterfinals if you ask me


wicked stink of polyvinyl chloride from the giant inflatable hand Viking got in his Maxbox


penalties are cheesy but great TV

talking to the taxman, but not about poetry


I’ve just re-enabled TwitterSync on Facebook, this is a test of the functionality


hmm TwitterSync can’t update my Facebook status, reverting to the “official” Twitter FB app


Viking: “Why do they have goalies? It’s too hard with them!”


how the f*ck did I end up with 120 “friends” on Facebook?


Go Russia!


Viking’s room is the messiest ever


sniggering at outdated ads still celebrating the Swedish team

ok I’m betting Russia - Turkey in the final. This is football as it should be!


ouch toothache :(

removing Microsoft SMS console wiped out large parts of my programs, now trying Windows restore


OK restore didn’t work (BIG surprise) so now I’m committed to Vista


making a list of all the crap I need to reinstall in Vista


Vista: “Your computer will restart several times during installation” – WTF


Vista up and running, facing an endless list of re-installs


going for Firefox 3


still can’t believe the amount of MS programs that still require you to be an administrator to install them




ok so loading a CD freezes my computer


I have officially joined the ranks of Windows Vista haters. What a fucking load of stinking faeces this is


that’s it, I’m reinstalling Windows XP


looking more and more as if the new FRA law is a stalking horse for detecting copyright infringment


against my better judgement, I’m trying Vista again


screw you guys, I’m going home


Twitter IM is taunting me… I get messages, but I cannot post. Please Twitter, I promise to learn Rails, pretty please???
