At Sickla doing my bit for the economy. iPod dock, wine, dvd cleaner. Now burger + hydrate, next ingredients for tonights dinner


of course camera is with me, but light is dull and flat. Listened to an entire Stackoverflow, I love that show


ok, prepared to do battle in the supermarket


Supermarket vanquished, but missed bus by 2 minutes. Twitterverse, keep my entertained!

Hi there Small Business(tm)! Even if you only have 1 page on your website, please put your opening hours on it. kthxbai

hi there Emo Girl! Despite your obvious low self-esteem, you can do better than current Scruffy Boyfriend


dollar inching towards 9 SEK #currency #fail


plowing through 1,522 unread emails (after being OOO 2 days). And those are just the stuff I don’t already filter into “To be deleted”


in these economic straitened times it makes no sense in investing ethically. Bring on the cluster bombs, it’s sauve qui peut!


I find it deeply ironic that while prosecuting the #spectrial, the music industry insists on hobbling @spotify_com with geotarding


old Nokia model names really stick to your memory… like Teflon


time to claim some expenses


Ryanair to start charging for toilet visits? http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/7914542.stm #ryanair #extortion


disappointed the prints I ordered last week weren’t scanned to CD


thepiratebay.com seems offline. has the RIAA launched a pre-emtive strike, or has the #spectrial been good publicity?


enabled scrobbling from #spotify! #last.fm #audioscrobble


dollar is now > 9 SEK, Dow heading towards 7,000 #econocalypse

wrong day to run out of coffee grounds


testing tweeting from irssi via tircd http://code.google.com/p/tircd/


nice touch, apparently people who are following you get a ‘+’ in front of their nicks


here’s a quick test of how tircd handles Swedish characters: RÄKSMÖRGÅS


lookin’ good! I really like this client


tarek: glasses aren’t the end of hte world ;) how about contacts? Can you use those?


hmm, what to have to dinner


we will be having salmon, potatoes, carrots and onions, prepared in the oven #dinner

out of battery? Are you serious?


access to gmail timing out…


I thought following the dpreview Nikon lens forum via RSS would be a potent source of luls, but it turns out it’s mostly depressing


how ironic that Twitter confirms that gmail is down…


Gmail: “We’re aware of a problem with Gmail affecting a small subset of users. “ - if by small you mean NZ, UK, and Sweden, then sure


here’s Google’s definition of the entire world as “a small subset”, recorded for posterity: http://is.gd/kEjq

lol entire pavement in front of work blocked off because of falling snow/ice from the roof


testing TweetDeck, wishing it had identi.ca support!


man TweetDeck is the Twitter client for nerds. Of course, so far it’s the best client ever!


I kinda wish you could dock random apps to the vista sidebar… there does seem to be an invisible wall separating “normal” apps from it


err TweetDeck notification window? Please get the fsck out of my way, pronto


got a bonus morning sarnie courtesy of my boss, who was concerned there might be traces of nuts in it. Feeling kinda full now


hey all you new app designers, how about choosing another colour than charcoal gray? I know all the cool Mac apps are using it, but still?
