evening meeting… bleh

Sterling is at 11 SEK, unbelievable

heading home, finally

wow just remembered I have a ton of graphic novels loaned from the local library still in the hall. “The Walking Dead vol. 1” among them

huh, looking at my FriendFeed, looks much cleaner and more me than the stuff I post to Facebook. Emulation needed

took me long enough to realise “Gilded Age” isn’t a positive term. Think a thin layer of gold over base metal

tweets for 2009-01-26

So far it’s been 100% female singer-songwriters on the iPod this commute

man the blue buses are seriously misdesigned in the seating department. It’s like we got the one for Vietnam or something

Google Chrome has some sort of faux-Aero skin that clashes pretty bad with the real Aero.

wasting time and energy surfing for used gear

Do I have a cold coming on? I know everyone says this, but I do NOT have time for this!

exchanged my old 19” + 17” flatpanels for newer dual 19”… one silver, one black :P

Lockerbie caused Pan Am to go out of business?

ok move set to next weekend… we will have a LOT to do before then

Matthew Sweet just keeps getting more and more lo-fi

Re my Matthew Sweet remark, actually “Sunshine Lies” sounds like a return to old form. More anon

today’s haul from shopping in #Sjöstaden: CD-Rs, Kodak CN400BW, kitty litter. Nice to have stuff so near, pity it’s so expensive

dear #lazytwitter: what’s the best IRC client for the iPhone? I’ve seen “Rooms”, looks decent. Any alternatives? No IRC == no iPhone for me

so both engines have disappeared “without a trace” from the Hudson Airbus. Can they have been dissolved in the river’s water?

2 thumbs up to @lazytweet, cool service, try it out! http://www.lazytweet.com/

burning Ubuntu 8.10 on a powerbook. for later install on a Dell… worlds collide

the Ubuntu installer just gets getting slicker and slicker

re latest tweet “as well as it dead”??? Inappropriate typo is inappropriate.

I need writeable CDs

oh bash, you lovable little scripting language with 10,000 different coparison operators you !

not looking forward to boring meeting, trying to find excuse not to attend. Will “monitor my twitter stream” cut it?

Heading to Åhléns to check out a jacket

I’m a bit scared of the fact that one beer makes riding the subway a much more pleasurable experience

Twitter homepage not updated with the latest tweets. Without Jaiku, Twitter apparently reverting to their old unreliable ways

Oh man I need to write a review of “Fishing in Utopia”. Such a great book.

so far the internets have frustrated my attempts to give it money… hope to rectify that soon

twitter downtime and no failwhale?? We’ve entered uncharted territory. We’re not in Web 2.0 anymore

Being the sad sad loser I am, I forgot the iPod at home

I wonder how SL gets their commuter trains the exact colour of cigarette butts

I think Manfred Mann’s Earth Band’s version of “Demolition Man” is superior to The Police’s.

finding it a bit scary I listen to the same music as @jarober: http://is.gd/fGGi

Bidding on a HR-2 rubber lens hood, will be ready and waiting when I get my Noct-Nikkor ;)

I wonder why apple are still running iphone ads on TV - slow holiday sales

that last was meant to be a query but I forgot the “?”

Viking just asked me how GPS works. How do you explain that to a 6 year old?

tweets for 2009-01-12

Commute in to work, is it my imagination or is the world leached from all colour

d’oh that should of course be: leached of all colour

gah the stench of train brakes is extra bad today #södrastation

I’m in the top 30 twitterers in Stockholm… http://twitter.grader.com/gerikson

finally caving in an building a local emacs. Vim is all well and good for short hacks, but for serious work you need a real editor(tm)

our system still have exchange rates for DEM and FRF… luckily these are now just aliases for EUR

Outlook misfeaturee: you can’t make a search folder look in separate inboxes. This is so crammping my lifestyle

are hashtags officially twitter now? #twitter #hashtags #inside-baseball

Awake. Guess what? I overslept, madly

Cleaning up

wasting time reading about medium format gear

fighting the temptation to write a blog post about the inconsistencies in “Wall-E”

The new Google favicon is butt-ugly

from 1000+ posts to 160 in Google Reader in a day… I obviously have too much fluff in my feeds

I do don’t wanna go to bed… and the cat purring in my lap is the perfect excuse!

however I do want a cuppa, and that means the cat will be evicted from her purring place

ok time for bed, finally

tweets for 2009-01-10

Breakfasted. Planning day, gonna pack as much as possible before departure this pm

Entrained. Halmstad - Stockholm with no changes. Just passed the road to the ancestral bog

train delayed due to “reboot”

“Waltzing Matilda” by The Pogues - such a sad song.

On the subway home, feet tapping to Elvis Costello’s “High Fidelity”

can’t sleep, I really should considering it’s back to the salt mine on Monday. Maybe I had too much coffee on the train or something

tweets for 2009-01-09

Electricity is a-ok again, yay!

Now fridge is on the fritz, can you say emotional rollercoaster

tweets for 2009-01-07

Day off today, will be taking care of Viking as his school has a “planning day”. This evening I’ll be heading down to Halmstad by train.

My lack of unread feeds are telling me something. They’re telling me to do something else instead of sitting by the computer

At the museum of public transport, a perennial fav due to it being close and having a mini-subway you can ride

Phew hadn’t entered my new password into WirelessIRC and had a devil of a time retrieving it. A-OK now though, ready to liveblog my trip! ;)

on the subway heading to the train station

macbook air on plane = borderline cool. Huge-ass Dell in subway = deffo uncool

SJ are crap at predicting where on the platform a certain carriage will align. So it’s chaos whenever a train arrives as people try alight

I of course am a pro and managed to place myself exactly by the correct entrance. Go me. Large hairy man smelling of cigarettes opposite

Sammwich’d.

now testing Telenor’s 3G connection while moving.

Damn running 14 minutes late. Should still make my connection though I hope

made the transfer, left Göteborg 5 minutes late. Typically, the seat on my ticket doesn’t even exist

this train isn’t direkt so I have to pay attention to where I am and shit

Students behind me are chatting about a “Facebook symposium”. Wtf

Arrived safely, late meal and conversation with my mom and aunt about old times. Single malt with dad, now bed!

haha LiveJournal FAIL http://is.gd/eFK1

made the mistake about reading about in-camera sharpening on the D200 on Flickr. Now all unsure of what the hell I’m doing

oh and by the way. If you’re a LiveJournal user, now’s a good time to look at backing up your stuff. http://is.gd/eGr5

MacWorld keynote seems to be the yawnz unless you’re a die-hard Machead

iTunes Music Storee: no DRM, variable pricing. Free market rulez http://is.gd/eIjo

darn Picasa for Mac requires an Intel chip

Heading in to the salt mine

Weird weather, it almost looks as if mist has frozen and fallen to the ground

Commuter train shuffle

Seems incredible that Mälaren is still ice-free but you should never underestimate the latent temp of water.

where the hell is my audio?

“25 to 5 and what a way to start the day” – The Triffids can write the soundtrack to my life anytime

still no definitive date for the office move… getting concerned we wonn’t have time to move net connection and legacy landline

looking forward to an early lunch… me be hungry

Planning some sledding for Viking tomorrow, must find thermal underwear

constantly amazed seeing people dressed in bulky Arctic jackets yet no hat

also, 50s style eyeglasses that make you look like a librarian, what’s up with that?

not sure if Twitter is syncing to FB after I changed the password… not that it’s really a big deal if it doesn’t

damn holes in both my socks

when will people learn that black/whitelisting IPs is Not a Good Idea(tm)? http://is.gd/eDvk

looks like the Twitter -> FB link survived the password change

tweets for 2009-01-04

Twitter has arrived - phishing scams! I haven’t got a link yet though, does this mean I’m not a “thought leader”??

Up really early on Sunday, feels pretty ok. Better than being kicked around by a sleeping 6yr old

Staring at 1,600+ unread emails

used Picasa 3’s retouch tool to remove a huge dust bunny from an old image. There’s not much Picasa can’t do right now
