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!

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

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

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

looping through 1e9 numbers takes a long time in #perl
problem 145 falls to brute force, runtime 54 minutes… not good at all! #projecteuler

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

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

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

snagging some podcasts before the weekend
Plans for the weekend: get presents for Viking’s 7th next Sat

bailing out from the net to re-read “Cryptonomicon”
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
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
Yawning and planning perl
Kinda wish I had a netbook just for hacking Project Euler on the go
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

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
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
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
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
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
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
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!
stuck on Johanneshovsbron
back at work
my computer is getting old
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
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”?
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!
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
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
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”
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 :(
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?
sending prints off to friends and family
ah Sunday morning browsing links
enjoying the writing genius of Alan Moore
tried validating my blog - that was a mistake
Going out for ’zas
Metallica concert in Stockholm cancelled, James Hetfield taken to hospital #metallica #concert
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!
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
Coldplay instrumental is sooo much better than any other Coldplay
“Digital is dead” is the new “Film is dead”
fuck Warner Music: http://is.gd/mbHH
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!
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
