my inability to take a keeper shot with the 28mm is starting to bother me a bit. I blame the sucky light

FB fail: “Unfortunately, the settings that control which email notifications get sent to you were lost.”

return of state ownership: “70% of Swedes want a nationalised Volvo”. Thanks Wall Street for destroying capitalism’s street cred

Swedish radio news, normally so politically correct, cannot decide between “Bombay” and “Mumbai”. Foreign office is “Mumbai”

not stressed enough to pack myself like a sardine into the bus, prefer a tram seat instead even though I’ll be 10 minutes later to the o …

Weekend weather not conductive to wideangle shooting, let’s see if I can grab some details with the 45mm

gotta write a review of “The Night Sessions”

1 glass of champagne and one can of lager has given me a nice buzz. Deffo won’t be playing Far Cry 2 tonight

lazy Yanks won’t update their feeds on Thanksgiving :(

Heading out to Viksjö for a meeting

jUst finished Ken McLeod’s “The Night Sessions”. Too early for snap judgements

At the dentis

heading in from the ’burbs

looks like the stores want Blu-ray players to be the present of the year…

great train stops at Odenplan :<

how come there are hundreds of low-cost airlines and the flag carriers are bleeding cash?

Ladies and gentlemen, I proud to present: Snow Chaos! #stockholm

damn using coupons instead of a swipe card in public transport makes me feel like a second-class citizen

another thing making you a 2nd class citizen: riding the old model commuter train from the 70s

ruthlessly culling unlistened podcasts

wow roads are still pretty snowy, glad I don’t drive any more

global food prices have halved since June… good or bad? Harbinger of deflation?

Snow outside. Viking has already been out, bless his heart

Loving my new bought-in-Spain boots, great grip in snow and ice

Yes, snow still around. Hopefully will get some sleeding action tomorrow

why doesn’t MS desktop/outlook search support regular expressions? grrr

hmm new gmail themes. The “terminal” is monospace (yay!) but too dark (boo)

adding “unsuccessful” to words I consistently mispell

got a reminder bill from PWC, they have a web address prominently displayed. Said link is totally worthless for consumers. FAIL

Girl in front of me is knitting. Not often you see that nowadays

Bus fail, taken out of circulation. Now shivering in Skanstull waiting for the no. 4

mobil.sl.se tells me the commuter trains are clusterfucked, taking the subway. Today is #publictransportfail

I wish I could tag stuff in iTunes

this query is redenkolously slow

Why does Niki Lauda have his own lowfare airline and why is he pimping arms manufacturer Oerlikon? (flyniki.com)

of course his toxic ideas live on in the poisoned minds of Rove et al who’ve now managed to drive the GOP off an ideological cliff

ok I’ve had this sports jacket a couple of years but still disgusted that holes have been worn in the lining. Need a good tweed number now

Today’s first-world problem, sitting in a cafe with your sick kids because you have the cleaners at home

moleskine + ballpoint == instant kid distraction

Viking: “Pluto is a planet”. That’s my boy

Killing time in a toy store

beatiful morning today, of course I forgot the camera

finally got my new broadband provider to get the bits flowing. Here’s hoping the random cutoffs are a thing of the past

I think I need an AF 28mm. A f/1.4 would be nice, maybe Nikon will release a new one so the old one will return from the stratosphere

Spent all night playing Far Cry 2 and would like to do it tonight again but that won’t happen

fifties fondled during Fotomässanà Nikon 50/1.4, Sigma 50/1.4 and CZ 1,4/50

Saturday, planning to hit Fotomässan today

At Fotomässan, stupidly left my camera for cleaning and now have to stay 2 hours

Heading home. Some really nice exhibitions, the gear stuff was disappointing. Sigma didn’t have their new 50 in Nikon mount, lame.

also, awesome Zeiss pin and Nikon keystrap, schwag for Viking!

tram driver: “this train is more than 15 minutes late, so it’ll be taken out of traffic” WTF

unsurprisingly, trying to launch on a Friday ended in rollback

Leaving work pub night early.

I still reflexivly type “blo” (for Bloglines) in my address bar, even though I’ve been on Reader for a long time

suddenly I’m getting gmail spam

feed reader zero

Second person I’ve seen having a jacket with the stars and stripes on as a decorative patch. Bit weird

why is there a Pictures folder both in $user $user/Documents (Vista)?

yay 992 unread items!

trying to track down what’s causign one of my cores to suddenly jump to 95% utilisation. nothing in task manager

reading about Franco

boring meeting is boring!

Early to bed, early to rise

Gonna miss my meeting

Meeting in progress, didn’t have time to grab a cup of joe

hmm one of my cores is pegged, and it seems it’s causing my itunes stuttering problems… can’t see any obvious culprit though

oh well I need to reboot anyway

Rocking out to the latest AC/DC, planning dinner

Even though everyone has one now I’d like a Fjällräven G-1000 jacket

Phone meeting

Getting mildly interested in camera gear again

Re-listening to “Smilers”

Wonder if the Fotomässan trade show this weekend is worth the 150 SEK

tweets for 2008-11-10

Awake, barely

Listening to some Aimee in preparation for tonight’s show

so not looking forward to ork :P

so what joker has removed all my Windows personalisation?

reboot fixed my Vista display issues, switched to full Aero to live the crazy GFX intense desktop lifestyle

ok last call, anyone wants a ticket to tonight’s Aimee Mann concert DM me

wonder when I’ll get my Reader unread count below 1000+

seriously why do I have to add all the people I know to Facebook Linkedin Flickr … there has to be a better way

gave up trying to resurrect my LaTeX-based resume template and went for a straight conversion to Word (fech!) instead

Running a bit late, suddenly paranoid Aimee is a stickler for punctuality

Female chicken farmers in ads look way too clean and perky

Phew, still a support act. Generic blonde Swedish female vocalist w/ band

Zomg she’s a yank and praising Obama

not sure the xylophone adds anything

actually not too bad for a support band, wish I knew who they are

quite a large audience, not easy to pin down. Guess most are “my age”

i wonder who chooses the in-between acts music, this is classic soul

yay Bill Withers

i see keyboards, an acoustic guitar, drum set and an organ

awesome show

so broke

or rather I have trouble accessing funds

Arrived BCN ahead of schedule. Now waiting for bags

Damn one bag is missing. Now waiting for lost luggage claims

Apparently Air Europa simply left the bag in Las Palmas so a football team could get their stuff on

Keeping our spirits up in the Arrivals hall in BCN

found a power outlet near the Ars cafe, right under the last long bar table nearest the exits

Great, ipod charger doesn’t work :(

At Girona Airport, what a dump. Ryanair cheapens everything, including stuff like airport security

Now been up travelling for 24 hours. Feel pretty beat, running low on energy

Ryanair runs like a bus company, we’re standing in line waiting for a delayed “bus”

on the bus to Stockholm, Ryanair much more service-oriented this flight. Sweden cold foggy and rainy

back home, stupid internet is still not fixed

Dinner at the in-law’s

Found out which footy team bumped our baggage off the plane: Gimnastic de Tarragona. Played 2 all against Las Palmas

Waiting for the bus to the Aeropuerto, 1st leg of the trip home (via Barcelona/Girona)

In Maspalomas/Playa des Ingles. Touristy resort is touristy

South coast of Gran Canaria is a pretty depressing place. Giant resorts hewn out of the living rock, facing the sun

Woke from a McCain victory nightmare. Turned on CNN to catch the end of Obama’s victory speech. So happy

Glad to hear Prop 8 was defeated too. Stop the h8ing, peeps

Aw man, prop h8 passed :( ?

saw an awesomely cute little Atom lappy at El Corte Ingles, bit steep at 300+ EUR. Better never let Viking see it, he’d wear us out nagging

mibbit is pretty awesome, I thought I’d nuked it on this machine but I wasn’t doing it right(tm)

Waiting for our order at a seaside restaurant

Watching CNN, updating my knowledge on US geography.

Hmmm seem to have blocket mibbit.com on this computer (internet terminal at the hotel) That sucks. OTH maybe IRC isn’t a top prio right now.

At BCN. Our flight to Palma is delayed, that doesn’t stop people from starting a queue. Rediscovered the pleasure of checked luggage.

Re the rental @ Palma, I’ll try to sweet-talk myself a car with the help of the police report of the theft

Safely landed in G Canaria, waiting to deplane

Bummer, got my pocket picked on the Metro. Lost 2 cards, driver’s license and the coolest wallet ever. No car on Gran Canaria :(
