forgot a camera. I foresee marvelous photo ops today :P

stupid iPhone won’t use the same format as Outlook when replying ot messages so a new thread is started when people reply

koehntopp: Outlook threading works OK for me, as long as you use “RE:" (yeah I know it’s wrong :) )

I’ve been using a phone for email since 2004 but it’s only now w/ the iPhone that everyone else is discovering the greatness

great, one of my cores is pegged at ~98% again, leading to choppy audio playback. Only help is a restart. Why? #winfail

cheatsheet for the Helvetica vs. Arial quiz: http://bit.ly/MfiUP

Posterous is a bit too minimal. I’d like to be able to attach stuff from the web interface

crappily edited and badly focused youtube videos seem to be de rigeur for wristwatch reviews

lunch at local Indian place… feel a bit bloated

great, turned out I have had the camera in my bag all day without knowing

I had three recipes to choose from, took the one where I thought we had all the ingredients. Turned out I was wrong. No green pea pesto …

thanks apple for claiming my ipod is “corrupted”

itunes + quicktime 9.0.1 install is sloooow. how come no-one mentions this bloatware crap in reviews?

looks like I’ll have to resync my ipod after all. Thanks Apple for a wonderful user experience :P

I’m in a catch 22, when I connect the iPod iTunes freezes, it’s only when i disconnect it that it says I have to reformat it.. uh, how?

finally had to put the ’pod in disk mode and then i could restore

kinda wrongfooted in the lunch department

At Subways getting a special

played some Halo ODST this weekend, it’s way too easy on Normal difficulty. Or maybe I’m just too good ;)

calling Dell about another Latitude D630 motherboard failure

Delicious chicken is delicious. Try telling that to my son though :P

Halo 3: ODST finished on Normal. Don’t tell Leo ;)

looking at Flickr’s Explore section, a lot of middle-of-the-road #photog there… also female self-portraits

started using Google Calendar, pretty useful now that I can sync it to work’s Outlook

put up the new drapes, a fiddly and frustrating process. Also they don;t quite cover the entire window :P

Off for sushi with 2 glasses of yesterday’s #bday Pommery in me #win

I should take this opportunity to play some “Halo: ODST” but I’ve got a couple of units of booze in me and will suck mightily at it

2009 has 3 Friday 13’s: Feb, Mar and Nov. Tempted to write a script to check if this is unusually many

stupid Hunters in ODST are making me mad

one of the advantages of having fixed a new gig is not having to dive into LinkedIn and tend that social garden…

ok, my little Flickr export/display project is more or less done… now what?

vem är det som sjunger Bellman i anti-alkoholreklamen på TV just nu? Låter som Olle Ljungström #fb

pretty happy with my new #Freitag bag, pics forthcoming #bday

To all my wellwishers today, thank you all! #fb

ok now planning on mailing all my flickr pics to Gmail for “backup”. Just need to make sure I don’t get flagged as a spammer

hmm the Freitag reseller in #Stockholm doesn’t list them on their website…

relaxing with a cuppa

my attempts at blue-hour photography were stymied by my lack of knowledge on how BULB works on the RB67 #photog #fail

ironically, #Gmail was more reliable when they were in beta #fail

gotta say that Chase Jarvis embracing the iPhone is a breath of fresh air in hothouse world of #photog

John Scalzi on the joys of Star Wars: Jedi Knight: http://is.gd/3ywuG

retroactively re-tagging my pics based on the ones I’ve used in Flickr. Only took me a weekend’s coding to get them out :P #photog

not a fan of RDF anymore. Stupid format grumble

I had a lot of fun in summer of 2007 when I first got my Nikon D40. I also took a lot of crap photos #photog

feels like a good idea to back up my images now…

RDF/XML is driving me fscking nuts, I need to rethink my entire approach

oh yes, before I forget, OpenOffice Spreadlegs still sucks rotten donkey balls. It’s an embarrasment

intressant att dom designers som “drabbas” är sedan länge döda (dessutom kvasifascister, men det hör inte hit ;)) http://is.gd/3weOW #dn #fb

förstärkt mönsterskydd för möbler skulle bara drabba nya designers som skulle stämmas av dom stora rättsinnehavarna för “intrång”

det skulle föga hjälpa dom som “drabbas” i nuläget. Vem driver denna kampanj i DN? Immaterialrättslobbyn har öppnat en ny front

Hmmm time to learn some RDF I think

great, now Outlook won’t let me mark an email as “read”. Oh Microsoft, you light up my day yet again

puzzling over the RDF produced by Net::Flickr::Backup

Red-line Metro still has old-style carriages #stockholm

Interviews are like tests, while you’re happy they’re over you always feel you could have done better

debated whether I should copy-paste the contents of 10 rows in Excel or try to generate email via VBA. copy-paste won

tweets for 2009-09-09

yes! Finally got my MF scans from Crimson

feeling less homicidal towards Wordpress after 3 succesful upgrades. It’s quite the package!

wow, Wordpress in French…

only €5000 for the Leica M9? My credit card can swing that!

if you have phpMyAdmin access to your WP install, resetting a password is dead easy

oh yeah, today wasn’t just Leica day, right? Some other company is having some sort of presentation

how come the Twitter “Sign in” button is much less prominent than the giant “Join” button?

always nice to get a comment on my shots. Thanks, @hult! http://gustaf.symbiandiaries.com/weblog/photo/Platform.html

classic, Apple presentation and Twitter dies

.@varjag will that prove that President Obama was born in Salzburg and his real name is Dietrich?

.@tiwilliam read the commandment of St. Jobs: thou shalt not multitask!

I’m sure it’s not really the cause, but I’m blaming the #Wordpress flap on #PHP. Everybody hates PHP

nice, Spotify coming for S60: http://bit.ly/3iJK0Q

tried using BT to sync the E71 but it was an exercise in futility

on the menu tonight: chili con carne + coleslaw. Looking forward to making it!

gnäll om att Spotify funkar dåligt på iPhone är definitivt dagens i-världsproblem #fb

chili con carne + coleslaw = yum

huh trying to access gmail gives a redirect loop (Google Chrome on Linux). Wazzup with that?

WTF, the Nokia E71 won’t charge via USB?? I have to keep another wire just to charge it?

Shoutout to Magnus who will miss tonight’s crawfish party. We’ll miss you, dude!

WTF is up with Dell and their “Driver Download Manager”?

I know you can’t expect much from cellphone cameras, but the E71’s pictures are pretty fucking horrible

this, kids, is why HDR is EVIL http://bit.ly/15LN2i

it never rains but it pours, our server room cooling failed so our office server fans are running full-tilt

definitely something wrong with our A/C, contacted the building manager

I’m calling the Leica M9 as a film camera. We’ll see if I’m right on 09/09/09 #leica #photog

maybe I should start using Google Calendar

13 iPhone 3Gs were just delivered to the office

suffering from mild iPhone envy, but I’ll borrow a E71 for the time remaining

So hungry and the train is delayed #sl

gmail is down, this means that #nogoogleday works! Never give up, people!
