Overslept madly


this day has FAIL written all over it


I must admit the build quality of the Nikon F90 is light-years ahead of the D40


I need to code a bot that finds followers I don’t follow and reports some stats:following/followers/no. of posts


thinking of sleeping in the swinging sofa if the weather turns really hot


next to last day at work, w00t


note to eagle-eyed readers re my “next to last day at work”, I’m going on vacation after tomorrow


fuck http://tinyurl.com/5ghweu


a quick glance at the Twitter API docs shows no easy way to get a list of followers and friends

tweets for 2008-07-14


punching in. Coworker has a new Windows Mobile phone. Does it work at all? Do bears shit in the woods?


no matter what I do, Windows Vista freezes my USB mouse. It’s like the old joke “mouse movement detected, restart computer?”


I’m not getting any updates via Twitter IM


Eavesdropping on “we’ve got a new flat” convos on the subway


Man I’m out of shape. Tomorrow, the gym!


great, peak phosphate to join peak oil? result: higher fertilizer prices, less food

Breakfast. Packing and cleaning up ahead. Epic yahtzee win by Viking

rented a car for the weekend and drove it in, soooo luxurious


I need some way to strip the ads from this crappy Live Messenger app


tried reading a “Star Wars” novel, utter dreck.


I wonder why my feed reader is full of libertarian nutcases


Looked like we were off on a quick start but we were foiled by a tiny metal ball


Oh noes I dropped the tiny black metal ball! Found it again, miraculously


South of Norrköping, filling up on carbs and caffiene

tweets for 2008-07-10


Man I fscking HATE Adobe Reader. How can something so simple become such a bloated carcass of anthrax-ridden pus?


so rumour has it that to type Swedish characters on the iPhone you’ll have to use a “special character” menu.


gearing up mentally for the long drive tomorrow afternoon


another piece of shitty software: the Backup Exec console


I’m pretty happy with this shot http://www.flickr.com/photos/gerikson/2654516299/


browsing the iphone app store


I see no IRC app, that’s a dealbreaker for me ;)


AIM for iPhone. It’s truly the new RAZR


and TypePad? what is this, 2003?


I really need to find out how to mute all notifications from a channel in Irssi

tweets for 2008-07-09


Photogear-themed morning, both good and disappointing


New used lens! Nikkor 35-70/2.8. Plus an Nikon F-90. Just fugly test shots so far


really enjoying google reader. So much more functionality than bloglines


falling in love with unix text tools all over again. cut -d’ ’ -f1 file | sort | uniq -c FTW


every time I’m faced with parsing apache logs I re-invent the same stupid wheel :(


I’m proud to announce that none of my glass is slower than f/2.8. Of course, none if it is faster either…


hmm the log extract is growing by 0.1G every 10s


1 day of logs == 9G


reading about peak oil is freaking me out!


Long wait for the tram :(

identi.ca twitter bot has been offline for more than 24 hours now


I need a command-line app that can post to any microblogging service, or just one
