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!

loaned 2 more Moomin stories for reading aloud to Viking. Hey Author’s Guild of America, you can sue me if you want! #kindle #copyright

bus came early!

relaxing after making my way home with lotso stuff from Sickla

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

of all Zevon’s songs on “Transverse City”, “Networking” has aged the worst, yet it’s still such a happy, life-affirming song

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

man I wish I could make calls on my E61 from Nokia’s PC sync

hehe #spotify skyscraper ads don’t resize well

TGIF!

days are getting lighter - half past 5 is grainy dusk and not Stygian blackness

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

DN startar http://dn.se/livsstil. En trend är över!

tircd - Twitter via IRC done right http://tinyurl.com/d2e55l

awesome, tircd tinyfies your links … I <3 this piece of software!

is it just me or has the photo-related blogging slowed down a lot?

getting mad at spoiled spendthrifts on TV (“Lyxfällan”)

Looking forward to the new version of #gravity during my commute tomorrow, so far the auto-updating has been flawless

great, now we have a law (IPRED) that will allow private companies the powers of a police force. Welcome to the Panopticon #ipred

hi @c_of_e and thanks for following me! Dunno if we have much in common though!

yay, my blog at http://gustaf.symbiandiaries.com/weblog/ is back! Thanks @rafe!

Philip Jose Farmer lived in Peoria?? Random. http://is.gd/kQJC

ok “Jessica”, if that is your real name, looks like Twitter is blocking you as fast as you can create robo-accounts!

I know a lot of the FML stories are made up but sometimes they are too bizarre not to be true: http://www.fmylife.com/love/132840

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

omfg the crown princess is engaged… the pointless spectacle that is our royalty gets another act

Rupert Murdoch’s mom is 100 years old?! Does this mean the old devil himself will be around that long?

Listening to Stack Overflow #41 with Uncle Bob. He has a weird accent. That, or he’s just enunciating very well

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?

oh sweet, make money fast spam on Twitter! I could use some of that (not)

stupid internet is acting up again!

we had good light this morning, but it went away before I could get my ass out of the door. Borrowed Hanna’s micro-Nikkor 55/3.5

this day has sucked

no article by @gruber is complete without the phrase “private beta testing”

Stressful start to the day. Wish there was a good sandwich place near work, could do with a nice sarnie

some people just give me bad vibes when it comes to support

In line at Subways after 45 shooting and ogling old cameras

that should of course be 45 minutes

hmm tracks are disappearing from Spotify. I wonder why?

TGIF, time to head home and fix a nice meal!

Much as I like gravity, having Twitter integrated in WirelessIRC is so convenient! #mobileways.de

this acoustic set by Lloyd Cole in Bremen is fucking brilliant

oh Windows, how do I hate thee? Let me count the ways…

haha I found this pretty amusing http://is.gd/kgHh, but I would not even consider downloading anything by U2… they are like totally boring

I find it pretty depressing that DN said Kadima was the “winner” of Israel’s election when anyone w/ a clue could see Likud would form a gob

disappointing that so many albums aren’t available on spotify in Sweden. Georetarding sucks!

waiting for a run to finish

Putty Connection Manager has its points but it’s a pretty buggy app altogether

I’m still LOLing at the fact that the #spectrial prosecutor had to drop the really meaty charge in the second day.

It’s a wicked cold tonight, sucking the heat right from your body
