our timesheet system is pretty damn good. I know from personal experiences what horrors they can be

got a lot of tips about effective resume writing from a recruiter, now acted upon them and will submit it to my eagle-eyed wife for review

wherever you look, the forum buttache over the Canon 7D is truly epic #forumtards

hmm metro or boat home?

finished re-reading “Halting State” and loaned it to @Veidit #stross

snabb koll av svenska tecken, tircd i irssi i screen i FreeBSD i ssh från Ubuntu: räksmörgås

tja, någonstans går det fruktansvärt fel

helping my sis-in-law connect to the wifi …

hemtelefonen funkar igen… peppar peppar #fb

sept 9 is both webcast from Leica and new iPod stuff from Apple… colour me a deep shade of “meh”

Carbo-loading at McD’s with Viking and Teodor #weekend #kids

Verdana is a great typeface, for online viewing! I use it myself. But plastered all over a catalog? That’s just cheap #IKEA #typeface #fail

spent the weekend reading more about photo gear than actually taking pictures… sad #photog

On my way in to Nybrokajen on “Emelie” #stockholm #sjöstaden

just met with a recruiter, got a lot of good tips about smartening up the ole resume

shooting with the SB-24 makes me want a real speedlight, not my wimpy SB-400. And it has to have iTTL #photog #nikon

I’ve managed to blog at least once a month since 2004: http://is.gd/2DSWU

A classic http://lonelymachines.org/mall-ninjas/

useasonably humid in #Stockholm right now

Dude who bought our house is 1m away from me, either doesn’t recognise me or won’t meet my eye #fb

fall fashion for women here in #Stockholm: frilly hems. What’s up with that?

maybe it’s a NYC thing, chick in the pinstripe shorts w/ frilly hems is coming back from there

looks like the new Canon 7D is the answer to Nikon’s D300s http://is.gd/2Bcws #photog #rumors

hmm my “smart” solution wasn’t that smart

part of me is happy I’m getting my watch repaired for a modest sum, part is disappointed I’m not getting a new watch

reading @scalzi’s deconstruction of Star Trek physics, not nearly as fun as the Star Wars on http://is.gd/2BhHu

Swedish regulator forbids the string “bank” in .se domain names… regulatory overstep http://stupid.domain.name/node/812

why just “bank”, why not funds, or insurance-related strings? #PTS needs to explain itself!

if you have a store called RayBan Kings you can’t have “raybankings.se”. Lunacy, as @jimh says :) #PTS #fail

I wish identi.ca all luck, but it’s not enough to build a better mousetrap, you need the mice (=audience). Twitter appeal=everyone’s on it

UPS and me == missed connections, and the package isn’t even for me

I’m not a fan of the current Israeli government, but whoever’s in charge, it’s not an easy job

new Sony A850 full-frame body doesn’t compromise much http://is.gd/2BPxf #photog #geargasm

Hmm kan man få iPhone på Tele2 också? #fb

why is Google reader recommending feeds I’m already subscribed to?

Thanks Nikon F90 for not reading the DX code on my roll of Portra 160 and staying set in ISO 400 #photog #fail #ihatefilm

On my way into Glenfiddich Warehouse

On my way home from a geeky and beery evening in #GamlaStan with @Veidit, @grunka, Magnus and someone who works for #Bahnhof

finally got my iPod to start syncing. I’m sure it’s not Apple’s fault, but I’m blaming them anyway

waiting with bated breath for cron scripts to execute

bated breath or baited breath? http://bit.ly/2ZH2R

gah balance is subtly off in my headphones

sold a children’s bed via #Blocket, good experience in general!

Impact as a typeface has more or less been rendered irrelevant by LOLwhatevers. You can’t take anyting written in it seriously #typography

3 innuendos for the win (and the compressed URL makes a 4th!) http://bit.ly/18DICK

Taking the boat this morning

doin’ the password change dance

no-one would have heard about the Aftonbladet piece if the Israeli gvnmt hadn’t flipped out #aftonbladet #israel

if the Israeli gvnmt or defense forces feel slandered, feel free to bring a civil suit against #aftonbladet. Pressuring our gvnmt is weak

the brouhaha in English: http://www.thelocal.se/21634/20090823/

man lotso bad feelings in the press this morning, #israel #aftonbladet and #anna.odell and this by Charlie Stross http://is.gd/2w92m

thanks iTunes for totally freezing up on me. Much appreciated

don’t give anyone your passwords, kids… http://bit.ly/MSh02

there’s a market for a decent Twitter client on Windows. Protip: don’t use Adobe Air

heading out for a little walk!

so far, 2 buyers have expressed interest in my 300 SEK clunker 24mm, but recoiled in horror when shown pics

wish I could filter out all the Snow Leopard chaff and only see the most egregious fanboyism

Scratch Black Internet from the list of potential future ISPs ;) #TPBfail

I feel like stomping our wifi router to bits, pissing on the remains and then burning them at midnight

Thanks photography for enabling me to put something under “other interests” on my #resume

huh, turns out these el-cheapo alkalines can’t power the SB-24

Swedish vacation days are confusing :(

protip: when trying to find out if the fax works, don’t try to fax its own number #thingsusersdo

why the hate on pop-up flashes for “semi-pro” bodies? Some disdain the D700 for having one. Me, I love me some emergency fill flash #photog

I suck at online auctions :(

Jag har aldrig sett ett DHL-inlämningsställe i Stockholm. Finns dom? City eller Söder #stockholm #fb

yet another week on call. Big woop

I would be very surprised – nay, flabbergasted – if Apple approves the #Spotify iPhone app

apple’s Swedish iPhone ads are grating, I guess they’re the same the world over. Who loves that twee and twinkly music?
