9,305 virus warning emails from our worldwide offices. sigh

we’re rewriting a component to be stand-alone for the migration. Motto: Why fix what’s kinda broken?

I can’t believe we’re getting the same crappy security system we had in the last place

hmm looks like the latest version of Last.fm is incompatible with our a/v

2 unresponsive ssh connections… my life is not much to write home about ….

hmm looks like the latest version of Last.fm is incompatible with our a/v

perl calling perl calling perl…

I suspect the popularity of using web tech to produce desktop apps is due to the ease of piping in ads

doing real programming as opposed to #projecteuler: hashes are much more prevalent than arrays IRL

gmail Contacts, where are you?

is there a “I think IPv6 is boring techwankery” group somewhere? Coz I totally wanna join

I still miss the groups in Jaiku and bloggy.se, Twitter needs some stuff like that methinks!

hi there Active Directory! Can you please wake up and notice my new group? kthxbai

gonna bring the 135mm to work tomorrow, try to capture some nice views from the windows

It beats me why MSN thinks I’m interested in the latest Hollywood gossip

oh crap, I’m on call this week

so we’ve got a (company) account on TheCloud’s hotspots. Hotspots, how very 2002.

release deployed. Lovin’ capistrano and our excellent documentation

problem 78 was a toughie, but once I found the correct generating function I got it. ~30m. #projecteuler

heh, clock says <17:05,> sun says <16:05.> DST win

tircd is going crazy, looks like the API interface is unstable

tried being smart w prob 206 but finally went for brute force. 18m and another one bites the dust #projecteuler

Wagoner’s resignation is “fascism”? (http://is.gd/pIxI). The dude should have been fired a long time ago for running GM into the ground

tweets for 2009-03-29

entered bills into the online bank, always a fun thing to do …

wholly missed DST changeover

problem 80 was basically too easy, read the docs for Math::BigFloat #perl #projecteuler

played w/ bro-in-law’s Nokia 5800 yesterday. Not terribly impressed #mobitopia

looping through 1e9 numbers takes a long time in #perl

problem 145 falls to brute force, runtime 54 minutes… not good at all! #projecteuler

tweets for 2009-03-28

Fixed presents. Hope my kid doesn’t follow me (or understand English)

also spent a happy 15m fondling high-end camera bodies and lenses at MediaMarkt

feeling like buying a 500W halogen light and blasting it defiantly out the window at <8:30pm> #earthhour

god what painfully hip kids at Max

mmm tea and chocolate

apparently I’m the last to know that a major Swedish poultry producer has distributed chicken with ground glass #kronfågel

shamed into putting out all the lights by my son, but reading by candlelight sucks so I’m online

getting fed up with my Op/Tech strap, it’s slippier than a lubed ferret on my shoulder

borrowed books 2-5 of “The Walking Dead”, dunno if I have the guts to read them

wtf is Patrick Swayze doing in this British film (besides dying of cancer)?

damn but teenagers are LOUD

tweets for 2009-03-27

Cleaning service Friday morning => I forget Viking’s gym clothes. Black looks from his teacher

ok, moved the office 1 floor up. Now mopping up

who the F request read receipts in this day and age? lame

damn lost a nose pad on my glasses

dead cat bounce over for this time, DOW won’t break up through 8K

snagging some podcasts before the weekend

Plans for the weekend: get presents for Viking’s 7th next Sat

perl module Games::Cards::Poker demolishes problem 54 #projecteuler

deploying a release

surprise! it was the wrong version

with the 270EX, Canon finally catches up with Nikon’s SB-400. Only took them, what, 4 years? #photo

and problem 74 bites the dust! time for a break now I think #projecteuler

yay, my black woolly watchcap turned up! gonna give it a spin in the wash before wearing it though

maybe doing a mass-update of the CPAN modules was a mistake #perl

first ticket I’ve submitted in ages

as ad-laden as Foxit PDF is, it’s still better than Adobe Reader

Finally on my way home

yet again, brute force saves the day! problem 70 done. #projecteuler

tweets for 2009-03-25

stop spamming me, stupid monitoring script!

I’m loving The Daily Beast (not least for the Waugh reference) but I think it’s ultimately doomed

I FAIL at Dijkstra’s algorithm (also, spelling “Dijkstra”) #projecteuler

I love having leftovers from dinner ready for lunch tomorrow

tweets for 2009-03-24

Yawning and planning perl

Kinda wish I had a netbook just for hacking Project Euler on the go

punching in

Svenska Kyrkans webpages suck donkey balls

W00t payday tomorrow

juggling multi-gig files for the Shanghai team

how’s this for PR: “Twitter: more fun than schtupping Jennifer Aniston”

no-one outside Sweden will grok why TPB’s new VPN service is called IPREDATOR

problem 71 was a toughie. Hint: Farey sequences #projecteuler

hint: read the problem description before coding #projecteuler

gotta love it when the Memoize module runs out of memory #projecteuler #perl

Kameradoktorn had my replacement eyepiece for a good price. Nice store, friendly service

How come “Big Me” is such a popular song to cover?

I need a better approach to my minimal-path algo #projecteuler #p082

Jason and Jessica are now following me! How cute! 100 to 1 it’s a couple of spammers though

tweets for 2009-03-23

so my Voip box needs new firmware, but the company providing it has gone off the web. Now in contact with their successor

Finally on my way in to work

hi there Outlook, glad to see you’re with us today - NOT

symbolic math is hard

This will be a week of late evenings :P

nice, 3 qwitter emails. Thanks for nothing, unfollowers!

HAH! In your FACE, problem 102!!

seriously, this shellbox and emacs don’t get along

tweets for 2009-03-22

retraced my steps to try to find the eyepiece, no dice. Oh well, at least I tried

our internet is fucking worthless

man, for some reason the List::Util function “sum” barfs when used on array slices. Reason for most of the frustration on problem 50

investigating Math::Pari

Math::Pari does seem to be a very interesting tookit at this stage of my Project Euler hacking

I hate it when I forget basic high-school math

tweets for 2009-03-21

Heading home from library (just borrowed Ghost World), McD’s, and grocery shopping. Oh yeah, new chinos!

in the Lamino, sipping tea

went out to take some pics and lost my eyepiece (DK-21) for my pains

looks like the recent stock rally was a dead cat bounce, as if anyone is surprised

read “Trollkarlens hatt” for Viking until he fell asleep

tweets for 2009-03-20

Project Euler howto: 1st try brute force, only optimise if that takes > 1 minute

reached level 2 in Project Euler

Heading home with a cupcake for Viking. Gonna grab some grub too, and a few brews

oh for Chrome for the (PowerPC) Mac!

starting the weekend with 0 unread feeds – not good

I need to try to remember that I’ve made some great deals for photo gear, among them the 35-70/2.8 and the FM2

if you find Math::BigInt too slow, take a gander at Math::GMP #perl

cracking open a new can of lager

gonna play some Far Cry 2, suspect the alcohol in my bloodstream will not help

finished Far Cry 2, maybe I should have chosen the other ending

tweets for 2009-03-19

not looking formward to this meeting

Great, sun is peeping out.

making perl run out of memory

another Project Euler problem eats the dust

It’s still light, yay!

bloody SOX

my computer is getting old

pondering lunch

so apparently not everyone agrees with the Pope when it comes to HIV and condoms

3 retweets on the theme of Scoble disappearing. I sense wish-fulfilment fantasies

damn the coffee doesn’t taste good anymore :(

yay got tircd to work! my bad, incorrect irssi incantation

tweets for 2009-03-15

I feel a bit less like death warmed over today

wtf is wrong with tircd now then…

LOL @ newbs wanting to use the Carl Zeiss ZE 50/1.4 wide open. Can you say “spherical abberation”?

tweets for 2009-03-14

time for another headache pill and some rest

finished “Anathem”. Pretty massive, a lot to digest. Will post a review later

the Russian stereotypes are flowing like vodka #melfest

wow, didn’t see THAT coming #melfest

I’m sure nerds everywhere are having geekgasms over the Facebook redesign, but it can be summarized in 3 words: sell more ads

On my way to the pharmacy in search of something for my fever

Friday the 13th – champagne!

tweets for 2009-03-12

so I have: fever, sore throat and a headache. Life is great :P

having problems connecting to #spotify

reading about why Pluto isn’t a planet anymore http://is.gd/n4i2

I might be able to get up to more to put away stuff before the cleaners come. I can’t do squat now though

tweets for 2009-03-11

made a conscious effort not to go online this morning during #commute, instead read New York Review

ah, yEnc, that brings back memories: http://is.gd/mQeV

just not that interested in George Orwell’s diary. Unsubscribing.

ah the tedium of the workday is enlivened by an IM VIRUS!!!

maybe I don’t get it, but I fail to see the appeal of visual voicemail. Perhaps I get too few vmails

CTHULHU HATES CHORDATES http://is.gd/mQTa

I might actually have to think about this Euler problem instead translating halfunderstood python to perl

heading home, not feeling too hot :(

haunted by off-by-one errors. Well not haunted, exactly. More peeved

tweets for 2009-03-10

Snowing like mad

Tried to compose a tweet in Swedish, but couldn’t rid it of Anglicisms

lost in a maze of SELECT statements, all alike

amazed at the amount of perl code I can write without errors

$Boss just recieved 3 fortune cookies from Oracle. Beyond lame

damn but the global economic outlook looks grim :(

the PBX is making our life hell. I hope Alcatel dies in a fire

modern version of “when pigs fly”: “when IPv6 is implemented”

iTunes wedged

as always, analysing the data is harder than gathering it :P

oh Vista, could you be any slower?

Glad to see Patrick Leigh Fermor is still alive!

Idiot in Bålsta aims against policemen with soft air gun, is shot in the leg. Candidate for a Darwin award

“Have you heard about the vegetarian cannibal? He only eats Swedes!”

snow is really pelting down

we have to SDT the entire fscking office for the router move

I can haz Sophos A/V?

finally cracked Project Euler problem 18 (and got 67 in the bargain!)

Waiting for the router to come back up

At Monks enjoying beer and food

Heading home, feeling a bit queesy. Hope it’s not the food :(

tweets for 2009-03-09

Kinda hatin’ on #Gullmarsplan. It’s pitifully underdimensioned for rush-hour traffic. And the fascist entrance gates don’t help

less than 4 weeks until I have to return “Anathem”, and I doubt I can extend the loan

I’m on call this week. Wheee! NOT

seriously pissed that rearranging pictures in Flickr Uploadr doesn’t get reflected in the actual order when uploaded #flickr

apparently 200W incandescent bulbs aren’t made anymore! Got a 150W halogen to try in the PH lamp

ok so you can reorder pics in your stream - by editing the “uploaded date”. Pls Flickr, make it easier, mkay?

Oh no, I left the ball and chain on my desk… said b’n’c being my mobile. Maybe I should embrace my inner dorkiness and get a belt clip

got a call from my Dad, he’s on his way to Tblisi, Georgia (the REAL Georgia, not the US state)

doing the password change dance

great, my new password is 3l33tp@55w0rD. Noting it here for future reference!

stupid PBX is acting up, that piece of shit always puts me in bad mood. Why didn’t we get a mobile-based solution?

Green line seems to have delays, more people than usual on the platforms and the trains. #sl #commute #fail

feeling sorry for the woman with the hairline at the crown of head and the straggly combover

train driver publicly scolded the idiot stopping the train just as it was leaving. Personally I think he should have been thrown under it

Funny how youth subcultures make comeback. Yeah I’m looking at you, “synthare” ca. 1986

hey! who took all my money?

The chubbier you are, the harder you fall. Valleywag rips into poor Scoble: http://is.gd/mfXM

Where is all my money going? Time to track expenses, even with rates at an all-time low we don’t have a surplus

Yay! Found Stephenson’s Anathem at the library in #Sickla

back after a visit to #Sickla. Lots of groceries made for a heavy load going back!

I fear for my son - he’s watching Teletubbies. He’s also nearly 7

reading up on maybe doing a DIY clean and lube of my 50mm. Consensus seems to be: don’t do it. Will get a quote from a repairman

donated some quakes to @daxe so he can go where I don’t want to go

looking forward to reading about the Federalist Papers in the next NYRB: http://is.gd/mi47

I downloaded and enjoyed “Therefore, Repent!” - http://is.gd/l02v . Recommended!

tweets for 2009-03-06

Will it ruin my geek cred to say I read “Watchmen” for the first time 2 weeks ago?

back from a great sub rosa breakfast http://is.gd/m3Cz

planning a dinner out tonight

Not really digging Kathleen Edward’s latest “Asking for Flowers” - spotify:album:3DmH2bQ9wLAp6HBLceR07f

looking around on the web for a way to transplant my #disqus comments from one domain to another, but not having much luck!

some of the stuff on http://www.fmylife.com is funny but a lot of it is really just sad :(

At Nalen, having lunch

checking out Annie Lennox on #spotify

``find ~/blosxom-data -type f -name “*.txt” | wc -l’’ gives me 994 posts! Just 6 to go for a 1,000

why am i putting off getting a coffee…

thanks Seagate for even temporarily shutting Scoble up: http://is.gd/m52c

Finally got my prints!

hmm threw away a New York Review with an article unread

stocked up on a couple cans of lager at #Gullmarsplan

Skynet, Cylons, Matrix AI - don’t try total extermination. Do divide-and-rule and wait 50 yrs for the genocides

Waiting for a call from the PBX wrangler

PBX wrangler has arrived!

we can haz landlinez?

man my 50/1.8 is really soft :( I dunno if it’s my technique or the crappy focus confirmation

using #spotify to check out Lightning Seeds after a tip on #mefi

wut, I have a FOAF file????

man a FB friends list to FOAF file converter would be nice

Damn, prints not done yet

depressing to see how much of my blog’s traffic comes from web spiders

man Spotify may be hacked… that’s a pain

umm Spotify? You think offering Kelly Clarkson is gonna make me want to buy Premium? Thanks, but no thanks.

I fail to see why U2 were so protective of their latest album. It’s pretty shite

calling it a day

Hmm judging from the throng on the platform, the tram is delayed #commute

stuck in a tunnel #commute #fail

oh man we’ve only got to Medborgarplatsen?!

today is our 6-year anniversary #anniversary #marriage

huh, a lot of different pointers on how to do name-based virtual hosting on #lighttpd. Bit confusing tbh

tkjaer: if you compare lighttpd.conf with httpd.conf you’ll see that lighty is way easier to grok

now using lighty for servign the blog, so long fnord and thanks for all the fish!

oh man I’ve gotta head to the Jewish Library today!

spent 15 minutes looking for my lens cap, having forgotten I had put it on the lens 10 minutes before

linking to p2p content is legal in Spain: http://tinyurl.com/3sj9sq

Enjoyed an expensive chicken kebab with fries

nice, new Olle Ljungström album “Sju” up on #spotify

for your listening pleasure: spotify:album:53Xal92hFQ7dtlhOkrT4e1

think I’ve figured out how to do a 301 Moved Permanently in lighty: url.redirect is the answer!

Skanstull #commute

my 2 star ipod playlist keeping my spirits up

Daily excercise: 5 flights of stairs. Pretty pathetic

purchased my first track from iTunes

oh man I love Chrome so much…

LOLing at DN’s pathetic attempt to smear the opposition to FRA as being atroturf.

ugh, don’t think I can do a real 301 redirect using fnord… guess I’ll have to set up apache after all

struggling with fnord (the webserver, not the Discordian term)

Dow breaks thru 7,000, keeps on falling

Heading home, at a loss what to fix for dinner

aw man the grey humid cold is back

I would like to run apache on port 8080, via inetd, and chrooted on FreeBSD. It’s puzzling how to get those pieces together

screw apache, I can’t stand httpd.conf

sad that so many otherwise great flickr pics are ruined by “poetic” (pathetic) titles

lighttpd set up, gonna mess around with it some more later

cats fighting desultory over a spot in the sunlight

heading out with Viking and his bud

back after a nice sunny day!

devoured the rest of yesterday’s dinner - chicken wrapped in Parma ham in a cream-and-balsamico sauce

Listening to some old Olle Ljungström after watching the documentary about him on SVT Play

DN sez that the opposition against FRA was coordinated by PR agencies. I don’t believe it.

BTW DN.se is really slow, getting 503’s all the time. Fix ur code, plz

it’s a pity Herbert’s “Dune” is so popular that spin-offs and prequels have been written: http://is.gd/eykW

“Nip/Tuck” is so far over the shark it’s in orbit

sucked into reading fascinating Atlantic article about talk radio: http://www.theatlantic.com/doc/200504/wallace
