ZOVIRAX OVER THE COUNTER, Seasons come and seasons go; life turns in a constantly changing manner. But, as after every summer, I'm back and I long to write for you. Fast shipping ZOVIRAX, :-)
I've been having a great time this summer, playing lots and lots with my wonderful children. It's funny that there's no end to how many times you can go swimming/playing in water and do excursions within Sweden to amusement parks, fictional character theme parks and such, ZOVIRAX online cod. :-)
No digital things
As you might know, every summer I try to take a few weeks completely away from computers, iPhone (and now iPad) and other things to just back to a core existence. This year, though, things were a bit different, ZOVIRAX OVER THE COUNTER. ZOVIRAX cost, Our society, and lots of things in it, makes it oh-so-much easier to get things done if you access it in a digital manner (this is also something Roger touched on in Frustrated by the Web).
So this summer, I had a couple of weeks away from the computer and (almost) only using the iPhone to make phone calls, purchase ZOVIRAX online. However, I had a much longer time, maybe 7-8 weeks away from reading e-mail, ZOVIRAX photos, tweets and Facebook, and this was great in terms of stress relief and focusing on more important things in my life. Maybe, just maybe, this means that there's hope of me having a sane and long-lasting relationship with Internet and technical things, ZOVIRAX wiki. ZOVIRAX OVER THE COUNTER, Here's for hoping. :-)
What happened during summer?
I know you read for various reasons, where some of you are are only interested in the Internet-related things I write about, some in the personal things, Is ZOVIRAX addictive, and some in all. So I have divided things I noticed and experienced into two categories below:
On the web
The iPhone 4 was released, and while sporting some nice features, all the noise came to be about reception issues, and if you held it a certain way, doses ZOVIRAX work, it would lose a lot of the reception. Apple first claimed it was a software flaw where it missed to register a drop before, which was, Order ZOVIRAX from mexican pharmacy, of course, bullshit. I've tried to hold one myself, and it's scarily easy to make it drop at least three bars in reception in a very short time.
Then Apple sort of came around and said every smart phone has that issue, and basically that was that, ZOVIRAX OVER THE COUNTER. They also offer bumpers, ZOVIRAX no rx, a sort of protection (for those who want a condom on your phone) to try and prevent these reception drops. There are, as always, ZOVIRAX australia, uk, us, usa, varying opinions about how Apple handled this; some think it was great, strong and proud, while others, like me, just felt offended by their lack of humble stance and think they could be more open and honest about it all from the get-go, ZOVIRAX treatment.
iOS4 on iPhone 3G
While on that topic, Apple released iOS4 which also had some nice things. However, ZOVIRAX natural, and I'm not sure why it is like this, once installed on an iPhone 3G, it got dog slow and on the verge of unusable. To me it got to the point that I downgraded my iPhone 3G from iOS4 to iOS 3.1.3ZOVIRAX OVER THE COUNTER, , and I've never been happier.
I'm sure iOS4 is great on later models, but was saddened to see just how bad it was on an iPhone 3G, ZOVIRAX long term.
Introducing HTML5 book
The Introducing HTML5 book was released, written by Remy Sharp and Bruce Lawson, and I was proud to be asked to be a technical editor for it. ZOVIRAX street price, I was editing/giving feedback on Remy's chapter, and it spurred some interesting discussions and takes.
I do think it's a great book that covers a lot of ground and I'm happy that I got the chance to read it before it was released. :-)
Impressive things, and I honestly hope it all pans out well, about ZOVIRAX. Hell, they even caved and implemented canvas, right. ZOVIRAX pics, :-)
Video of my SWDC 2010 presentation
At the beginning of June, I was giving a talk about HTML5 at the SWDC 2010 conference, and now there's a video of my HTML5 talk. As always, it's on pubslishingterrible to watch oneself, what is ZOVIRAX, but maybe one or two of you might find it rewarding in any way.
Prince, the guy to really listen to about the Internet (...) claimed that "The internet's completely over" and that it's not the future for music sharing, herbal ZOVIRAX. More to read in the Prince interview, ZOVIRAX OVER THE COUNTER.

Google Wave cancelled
At the beginning of August, Google Wave got cancelled. Perhaps not that shocking, but still, I didn't believe it to happen so soon, ZOVIRAX from canadian pharmacy. Only the future can tell what the experiences and code will really turn into.
As you all know, Football World Cup took place, which was quite an interesting happening this summer, ZOVIRAX OVER THE COUNTER. It also, unfortunately, proved that sportsmanship isn't really that good, some of them weren't really good role models and that there are definitely some shortcomings in rules and decision-making, ZOVIRAX from canada. One day, I might write a more detailed rant about it...
The Dice Man
During summer I finally took the time to read The Dice Man, which, in my opinion, is a fantastic book - it's both funny and thoroughly entertaining, but also very thought-worthy and touching on some serious things in our society, discount ZOVIRAX.
While reading it, for a number of reasons, I was completely ready to just grab the dice and see where they would take me.
ZOVIRAX OVER THE COUNTER, I was visiting the Kolmården animal park with my family, which is basically packed with children and their parents, and everyone is looking nice and friendly. Buy cheap ZOVIRAX no rx, However, one guy there got my attention: he was a large bloke, tattoos everywhere, including the face, and for the day he had chosen his (I presume favorite) t-shirt with the text reading "Your mother sucks cocks in hell!", ZOVIRAX interactions. Classy...
During summer, I had quite a large beard, Generic ZOVIRAX, and at one time when I ran into someone I have only met once before and greeted him, he had a hard time placing me (fair enough). After some thought, he has convinced he had it, and asked if I was a boat builder on an island in the outer Stockholm archipelago, online ZOVIRAX without a prescription. How looks can deceive.., ZOVIRAX OVER THE COUNTER. :-)
Riding the bull
During a visit to a western park called High Chaparral I tried riding a mechanical bull for the first time in my life (being sober and far away from anyone knowing me felt like a good idea :-) ). It went, well, Where can i find ZOVIRAX online, so-so...
The most amusing thing, though, was one guy who couldn't even get on the bull to begin with. :-)
Protein shakes and health risks
For those of you working out and drinking protein shakes regularly, some disturbing news came out in a report from Consumer Reports, stating that there are Dangerous Chemicals in Protein Shakes, such as Arsenic, Cadmium, Lead, and Mercury. Make sure that you are not drinking one of them.
So, that was that I wanted to get off my chest (and probably tons of things that I missed). I sincerely hope you had a great summer, and I look forward to writing for you again, and I hope to get the chance to meet as many as possible of you in real life as well.

I flew down on Friday March 27th with SAS from Stockholm to Berlin. It was a bit windy, especially when we were about to land, but overall a nice and gentle trip. I took a cab to my hotel, get SYNTHROID, Park Inn at Alexanderplatz. Earlier, I had talked to Rey Bango about having dinner together on Friday night, but I didn't know when he was about to arrive, SYNTHROID FOR SALE.
So, I checked in at the hotel about 8 pm, I got my room at the 29th floor with a beautiful view of Alexanderplatz and the TV tower. As soon as I had settled in, I sent a text message to Rey to see where he were. Buy SYNTHROID from mexico, The surprise reply was that we would not be there until 11 pm. I thought he maybe was preparing stuff at the venue before the conference, but it turned out that we was in Paris, waiting for a connecting flight.
SYNTHROID FOR SALE, Then, apparently, it is super-expensive to send text messages with a US subscription when you're abroad (my theory: Rey is a bit cheap, don't earn enough or is just plainly misinformed :-) ), so our communication abruptly ended with Rey sending a text message to me, begging me to stop texting (he also used lots of abbreviations, like the number of characters in a message influenced the price...).
Ok, I was on my own. I texted with some loved ones and friends (since I could take the total cost of about â‚¬1), and then I called a friend I knew would be in Berlin over the weekend to see if we could meet up, SYNTHROID photos. Unfortunately, they were in another part of the city, just about to have the dinner, and I didn't have the strength to take a cab and try to find them.
Very tired after the work week, I decided I had to activate myself to stay awake. I went out for a walk in the Alexanderplatz proximity for about an hour, getting some cold nice air and pretty scenery, and ended the walk with eating a bratwurst from a stand in the square, SYNTHROID FOR SALE. Ordering SYNTHROID online, After that, I went up to my room again, with about an hour and a half to wait till Rey would arrive.
Unfortunately, all the TV channels were dubbed to German (stop doing that!) and my German skills aren't that good, so watching TV was out of the question. Also, Internet in the room was extremely expensive (how about â‚¬6 per hour?), buying SYNTHROID online over the counter, so I decided to alternate between reading some magazines and playing Texas Hold'em on the iPhone. At around 11 pm I was so far slumped down in the bed, I just had to get up to stay awake. SYNTHROID FOR SALE, I went down into the lobby, sitting in a couch there reading some magazine I found in English, and probably pretty close to 12 pm, Rey and his entourage walked into the door. Tired, moving very slowly, I got up and greeted him. SYNTHROID street price, Since I had been lonely for some time, I was a bit clingy ("see me, love me!"), and acted a bit like a dog when its owners get home from work. I would not be left behind on my own, not again.
I went with Rey to his room (only fifth floor, ha ha, after SYNTHROID. - do that laugh like Nelson in Simpsons :-) ) and had a look at it, SYNTHROID FOR SALE. I did, however, get the tingling feeling that he would probably like to be left alone for a moment, so I offered to go down to the lobby to wait for them. The offer was graciously accepted my Mr. Bango. Order SYNTHROID online c.o.d,
When everyone had got settled, we met up in the lobby for a late night dinner. SYNTHROID FOR SALE, It was Rey, Chris Beard, Pascal Finette and me, and we went to a place with both Spanish and German food. I was still full from the bratwurst earlier, but joined them in eating some garlic bread. Chris was kind enough to treat us to dinner (thank you!) and after a nice chat, we went back to the hotel to get some sleep.
Back in my room, I realized that iPhones don't work as regular cell phones when it comes to setting the alarm: the iPhone has to be left on to sound at the right time, where can i buy cheapest SYNTHROID online. Scared to turn off the sound as well, I left it on, and tried to get a few hours of sleep before the big day Saturday. Lying in the bed, tossing and turning, many thoughts went through my bed about being in a new city, if I was prepared enough for my presentation etc, SYNTHROID FOR SALE.
I had probably just fallen asleep when I, at 02.48 am, got a text message from my friend, SYNTHROID dosage, containing just one word. That word was, I later found out, a name of a bar, but at that time I figured he was only drunk or I was completely missing something, and tried to fall asleep again.
When the alarm went off, I was completely exhausted, order SYNTHROID no prescription, but at the same time, grateful to just get up and get ready; no more time wasted on trying to sleep, but not really being able to. Rey and I were supposed to meet at 8 am to have breakfast, but he called me, being completely jet-lagged, Buy SYNTHROID without a prescription, and said he had to sleep one hour longer. SYNTHROID FOR SALE, Alone, once again, I went down to have breakfast, and was hoping that I'd get some company. Alas, I never got it, so I got a bit needy with a very old English lady, but she was nice and spoke to me for a while. Eventually I called Rey's room, he was up, and we were to meet just a little later in the restaurant, SYNTHROID gel, ointment, cream, pill, spray, continuous-release, extended-release.
After Rey's breakfast, he was a bit stressed to get there in time to get ready to give his keynote, and to make sure we got there right and in time, he persuaded me to take a cab with him. The eventuality we didn't consider was that the cab driver's GPS didn't count with road work, and that he didn't know where we were going, SYNTHROID interactions, so eventually we had to give him our map for him to find the way.
Once there we saw it was so close we actually still had a visual of our hotel, so walking had probably been at least as fast (except walking makes Rey start panting :-P ).., SYNTHROID FOR SALE.
The location for c-base is accompanied by a myth. This myth says that there are remnants of a space station called c-base underneath the city centre of Berlin, online buying SYNTHROID hcl. The space station's antenna is the Fernsehturm Berlin, a large spire with a mirrored ball near the top and a distinctive landmark nearby.
According to the stories of the members of the c-base, the space station crashed due to unstable conditions in its orbit after exiting a time warp. SYNTHROID FOR SALE, At that time there was a number of highly technological advances and heretofore undiscovered lifeforms aboard the station. Much evidence of its existence is said to be in and around Berlin, including the aforementioned antenna, which was (according to stories) unmasked by East German and Soviet scientists. What is SYNTHROID, Other evidence, such as the multifunctional space station module, which ejected during the crash, is now under intense research and makes up the current premises of the c-base association.
When in, we were greeted by some nice Mozilla people, organizing the event: Paul Rouget, William Quiviger, Jane Finette and Barbara Hueppe, where can i find SYNTHROID online. I had, in turn, some nice talks with each of them, finding out who they are and what they do for Mozilla.
I then had the pleasure of meeting Patrick Finch, who's originally from the UK, SYNTHROID cost, but lives in Sweden now with his Swedish wife. We shared some nice anecdotes, cultural views and some general talk about events, possibilities and the future, SYNTHROID FOR SALE. In our talks during the day, Patrick came off as being very smart, so I felt I had to be somewhat cautious with that I said. :-)
The event starts
At 11 am we the event kicked off, Paul Roguet and William Quiviger gave us an introduction, and then Rey delivered his keynote speech. It was good to see Rey and I especially got smitten by his amount of enthusiasm and his true conviction of what great things he's talking about, buy generic SYNTHROID. Also, kudos for bringing up current bottle necks and shortcomings in the Mozilla add-ons web site, and constructively and openly talking about what they plan to do to make it even better. SYNTHROID FOR SALE, After Rey, Chris Beard beard did a talk about Mozilla Labs, the truly exciting things brewing there, and, for instance, revealed the plans/ideas about integrating some of the Ubiquity functionality right into the awesome bar (URL field) in Firefox. Sounds exciting and very powerful.
Time for lunch. I only got a little to eat, Where can i cheapest SYNTHROID online, just to avoid barfing all over the audience during my talk out of being nervous, and got my things in order. I briefly met Richard Sternagel, who said he reads my blog and was excited to see me talking there. :-) Blushing, I thanked him and had to run off to be completely prepared for my talk (hope your talk went well!), SYNTHROID FOR SALE.
SYNTHROID FOR SALE, From the first minute on, I tried to win people over with my different sense of humor, since I believe a presentation should be about entertainment as well as core facts, and it seemed to go down well. I'm particularly pleased with my completely spontaneous references to the g-spot and about Swedes being happy on the inside. :-)
After the talk I was in heaven. SYNTHROID brand name, So many days of preparation and being nervous, a huge weight was lifted from my shoulders. A number of persons asked questions about it, thanked me and some even complimented me (Patrick Finch said the nicest things I ever heard about my talks :-) ).
I just wanted to run around and mingle with people and have fun, and you know what, SYNTHROID FOR SALE. Now I could. :-)
Following my talk was Daniel Glazman, who interestingly enough is French, but speaks Swedish, buy cheap SYNTHROID, since he lived shortly in Sweden and his former wife comes from here. It was great hearing someone speak Swedish, and I could just cross my arms, lean back and enjoy when Daniel and Patrick Finch were having an exchange completely in Swedish. :-)
During the afternoon, I also got to meet Carsten Book (aka Tomcat), SYNTHROID dangers, who's a Mozilla Q&A legendary, and we had the opportunity to talk for a little while. SYNTHROID FOR SALE, Then I specifically remember Jane Finette being very nice and interested in what I had to say, but I had to blow her off and run with the others to get something to eat: sorry, Jane, I owe you one.
When all presentations were over, there was a nice buffet and beer to drink, Buy SYNTHROID without prescription, so I mingled around and spoke to some really nice and interesting people. We were around for an hour or two, but then unfortunately, a majority of the speakers were leaving to get dinner, SYNTHROID FOR SALE. I would have loved to stick around, but hey, it's impossible to be at two different places at the same time.
For dinner, Rey, Tomcat, Brian, real brand SYNTHROID online, Daniel and I, together with Axel Hecht and Zbigniew Braniecki (aka gandalf), walked to our hotel to leave our computers (and for some people to freshen up), and then in search of a good dinner place.
The place we went to had an usher/owner who constantly walked around with a thick jacket and a hat on, inside, Online SYNTHROID without a prescription, and he was French... With that in mind, I still think we got a good German food experience. SYNTHROID FOR SALE, There were lots of great conversations during dinner, and we had a lot of fun. :-)
Afterwards, everyone was fairly tired after an intense day, so we went back to the hotel to get some sleep. It was fairly late, and also having in mind the daylight saving time change that upcoming night, cheap SYNTHROID, which would make us lose an hour of sleep, it was probably a good call. Back at the hotel room, I connected to the Internet to check my flight home, and if I could possibly check in online. I couldn't, SYNTHROID class, so I checked some other things as well.
The next day, Sunday, there was to be a hack day at c-base and Paul, William and Rey would be there.Mme, on the other hand, first time visit in Berlin, wanted some time to see the city and Daniel Glazman had the same situation and opinion, SYNTHROID FOR SALE. We decided to met in the hotel lobby at 10 am to do a walk of the city.
With the time change and all, I was afraid I would oversleep, so I turned of any possible automatic time updating I could find on my iPhone, and manually set the new time. Had a good night's sleep, got up in the morning, low dose SYNTHROID, ate breakfast and checked out. This was a few minutes to ten, so I was right on time. SYNTHROID FOR SALE, Perfect planning.
When leaving my suit case in the luggage storage, I got the idea to just double-check the time with the hotel staff. Turned out it was only 9 am and the iPhone had set itself one hour forward, SYNTHROID reviews, in addition to the extra hour I had added (one would think it might be smart enough to compare actual times instead, but no...).
This meant that I had to wait an extra hour for Daniel to get ready and meet me, and I didn't want to call him and possibly wake him just to cover up for my mistake. So, I sat down in a chair in the lobby, contemplating whether I should be doing an hour's looking around close to the hotel, and then meet Daniel at 10 am, rx free SYNTHROID, or if I should just sit down and hang out.
Against all odds, while still considering what to do, 9.20 am Daniel comes walking by, SYNTHROID FOR SALE. He was all ready, and just got his things from his room and checked out. Talk about luck. We then embarked on a haphazardly walk across Berlin, with a vague goal of reaching Brandenburger Tor some time during the day. SYNTHROID price, coupon,
We passed a number of nice street markets, churches, the Berliner Dome and other nice places. SYNTHROID FOR SALE, I bought a Chai Tea Latte at Starbucks, naturally burned myself and spilled some, all while Daniel was waiting outside with his already finished espresso. Eventually, we reached Brandenburger Tor, looked around there and at where the Berlin Wall used to be, and then followed Strasse des 17 Juni to the Berliner SiegessÃ¤ule.
When we got tired of walking, SYNTHROID overnight, we visited a public restroom which seemed to be built to teleport people, and then had sit-down break at a restaurant (Daniel wasn't entirely pleased with the waitress mood; I asked him to be nice to avoid spit in my food). Following that, I managed to get some gifts for Fredrika and the children, and Daniel presented me to a nice Italian toy store where everything was made of wood. The excursion ended in Alexanderplatz, where Daniel bought some weird nuts or something, and I had a lovely crÃªpe with sugar, butter and banana.
Incidentally enough, Daniel and Paul Rouget had a flight to Paris at the same time as my flight home to Stockholm, so we shared a cab back to the Berlin Tegel airport, SYNTHROID FOR SALE. The flight home went very fast, although I had an enormously big guy sitting next to me. Airline seats are small, right, and whether he wanted it or not, his arms just had to hang over to my seat. I was sitting next to the aisle, though, so I could lean out and make enough room for me (word of advice: watch the hard and fast food carts passing by!).
Fredrika was to pick me up at Arlanda, the Stockholm airport, and being a pilot's daughter she sounded very confident about what time to get there to meet me when I was through from the gate and possible customs. SYNTHROID FOR SALE, Turned out that when I was all ready to go home, she hadn't even left home yet to go to the airport, so I had a half hour to spend at the airport, before the final leg of my Berlin journey...
I had a great time in Berlin, lots of fun meeting the Mozilla people and the developers at the event, eager to learn more about add-on development. I sure hope to get to do something like this again, because it was fun. :-)
Also, If anyone's interested, you can take a look at my pictures from Berlin (only taken with iPhone, next time I'll bring a real camera).

If you're expecting more information about the Spotify service, I unfortunately need to quench your hopes right now; this post is just about the party (although I did find out some things about Spotify, Cheap DIFLUCAN no rx, which makes its future even more promising!). At the time, Spotify is only available through invites, and sorry, buy DIFLUCAN from mexico, I don't have any invites to give away.
I had been feeling very low all day, DIFLUCAN without prescription, since I seemed to have caught some variation of the flu. Therefore, I just dragged my feet around, just wanted to sleep, DIFLUCAN reviews, but still, I knew I couldn't miss an event such as the Spotify party.

Jim and Adam went to leave their jackets, and while doing that, Emil and Lady S, DIFLUCAN online cod. popped in. Finally, DIFLUCAN pictures, I knew loads of people.
We first mingled at the bar for quite some time, and when the performances started, we moved into the large party room/concert venue and watched, DIFLUCAN FOR SALE. There were tons of people now at the party, and it really took some effort to get anywhere amongst the masses, not to mention the ridiculously long lines to the bathroom, no prescription DIFLUCAN online.
When I couldn't bother standing in one of the lines, I went into an adjacent room looking for another bathroom in another section, Where to buy DIFLUCAN, but found none. When I went back, two guards were standing where I had initially walked into the room, and stared furiously at me, DIFLUCAN samples. The conversation went something like this:
- Are you in a band?
- Are you in a band?
- No (thinking: why would I be in a band?).
- So what the hell were you doing in there?
- Looking for a bathroom.
No more replies, except for some possible grunting, Buy DIFLUCAN no prescription, but with looks filled with hate.
Really, they took the pretty old, fairly short, completely sober and somewhat sick-from-a-flu guy to pick a fight with, buy DIFLUCAN online no prescription. DIFLUCAN FOR SALE, Jeez...
I mean, I have bad days at work too, Is DIFLUCAN safe, but the intern isn't the first one in the line of fire. Or... well, anyway, DIFLUCAN from canada, moving on... :-)
After the performance of Jim's neighbour, Where can i buy cheapest DIFLUCAN online, he got an SMS from him, wanting to meet. After a cat-and-mouse chase and some very vague descriptions, we finally found our way backstage (no guards there, why would there be, they were busy guarding potential bathroom-queue elopers), DIFLUCAN FOR SALE. After following a maze of fire-stairs, corridors and what-not, we eventually got to the backstage area.
Something I found fantastic, since there were nice couches to sit in, free coke to drink (and naturally, alcohol for those physically fit for it) and free candy in bowls for anyone to eat. Given how tired and worn I felt at this moment, it was heaven to me. No being pushed every other second by over-refreshed people, no overpriced drinks (I was out of drink tickets at this time), and no loud music, so we could actually talk.
DIFLUCAN FOR SALE, We were back there for about an hour, and occasionally now and then some more people would drop in. When we introduced ourselves to the "new people", an interesting conversation took place, when Jim's friend Adam introduced himself:
- Hi, I'm Adam.
- Are you Jewish?
- Oh, ok. It's cool, either way.
Being actually there, let me be the first to point out that it was totally clear that it wasn't a racist question, but rather an attempt to find a topic to start a conversation with. It did sound both funny and weird when it came out, though.
I think this is due to that, as far as I know, to begin with we don't have that many people with a Jewish heritage in Sweden, and second, we don't really care where people are from, so the word Jewish is just very seldomly mentioned here, DIFLUCAN FOR SALE.
After some people was thinking that it was a bit lame/low-key backstage (still heaven for me :-) ), they started to play some music and bringing some life to it. Something I would've liked under usual circumstances, but now I was just way too tired. I decided to leave them to their fun and avoid ruining their party out of being plain boring, and instead started my journey home.

I now own an iPhone and must reconsider what I wrote in iPhone letdowns.
First, I must say that the iPhone has revolutionized my sex life. It has made me come harder than ever before. And, sometimes when I get into the mood, I use the fantastic app iRectum, turn on the vibrating and ask my friends to call, for the ultimate pleasure.
Some people have complained about the pricing model, but personally I had no problem selling both my kids to be able to experience such a fantastic interface! And, oh, the camera! Sure, it might take blurry pictures, but, honestly, don't we all feel out of focus from time to time? Besides, photography and grainy quality reminds me of my fond days as a crack whore in Berlin...
Also, for those who haven't tried it yet, I strongly recommend the service RapeMe to be sure of where all your savings go, while presenting your "photos" to all your friends - please remember, love is blind.
Disclaimer: I don't really own an iPhone. I do think it's a pretty good product, although it lacks some features. Perhaps I'll get one one day. This post is rather targeted at the ridiculously biased and uncritical reviews and blog posts I read this summer about the iPhone 3G. If my harsh language has offended anyone, accept my apologies.
From September last year till this summer, I was working on a project which demanded some extra time and efforts, especially at the end before launch (which doesn't), and the customer was nice enough to treat us to a reward trip for our success; basically, for doing what we're paid to do in the first place. :-)
Anyway, I really appreciate grateful customers, so naturally I agreed to go on the trip. We were about 20 persons going on this trip (I think), and the plan was to have two sailing boats and do some match racing in the Swedish archipelago, to our destination Sandhamn. With me on my boat was two colleagues who I like very much: Visar Ulaj and Clark Kent (aka Jonatan Larsson), who joined the projects for the last couple of months.
Unfortunately, though, there was no wind. No wind at all. And then it started raining. We made a lunch stop and watched the Olympics in our sailing boat, drinking beer and generally having a good time. After lunch, the clouds actually started to disperse, but still, no wind.
With us being good sports, this naturally meant mocking the people in the other boat, their instructor and each other. While drinking more beer, of course. :-)
Jonatan constantly bugged the instructor to get to steer the boat, and was indeed very proud when he could do it with a certain "technique". His words and the sight of it still echoes in my head:
Look, no hands!
Luckily, Visar (arm on the left) quickly showed him that that's not an acceptable behavior:
After some hours getting literally nowhere, the sky once again darkened. And this time, it blew up to a storm, in the exact direction we were going! Soon the rain was pouring down and lightning started to strike down closer and closer to the boat. Throughout the thunder and increasing wind we could hear the skipper cry out:
Whatever you do, don't hold on to any metal!
He told Jonatan to steer with just one hand now, in case the lightning actually did hit us, and trust me, Jonatan didn't seem at all interested in the no-hands method now...
We counted seconds between the visual of the lightning and the roar of thunder, and it got so much closer in such a short time that we eventually had to cancel the race, and sail of in another direction, and consequently run by engine instead.
When we reached Sandhamn we were all drenched, even through our rain clothes, and for some reason the crotch area seemed to be the weak part in our set of rain protection pants. A big group of men walking of a sailing boat in the harbor with wet crotches isn't really the kind of entrance one wants to do...
After that, though, we had a great evening with jacuzzi baths, a great dinner and lots of fun events. During dinner, at one time I laughed so hard I thought I'd stop breathing, so if a good laugh prolongs life, I'm sure to become a lot older than those yogurt fetishists in the Kazakhstani mountains.
One of my other favorite happenings during the evening was when one of the guys in the team got rather, eh, ingenious, and was going on like crazy: disliking the DJ's songs, the apparently lame crowd and other assorted things. He wasn't violent at all, just upset that he didn't get to do all the proper dancing he wanted to.
Me and a guy named Peter shared room, and he had this idea to drink about a gallon of water before going to bed, to avoid feeling ill the next day. I went to bed and feel asleep, very tired and fairly drunk. After having been asleep for just a short amount of time, I heard someone running into the bathroom.
My father instincts kicked in right away, and I got under the impression that it was my oldest daughter Emilia, 4 years old, in the bathroom. To make sure everything was ok with her, I jumped out of bed, yelled "Emilia", and ran to the bathroom door and pulled the handle. As soon the door started to opening, it was jerked closed again rather curtly, and I heard a groan from a very deep voice in there.
Man, Emilia has gotten a very dark voice
I thought, and slowly it dawned on me. It wasn't Emilia at all, it was Peter in there...
I withdrew very quickly and quietly to my bad, and didn't say a word when Peter got out again. After that, Peter went to the bathroom at least once every half hour, since his body had decided he needed to pie out that gallon of water before sunlight.
The morning after
We were awaken in a nice harmonic way: garbage trucks backing up and emptying dumpsters with glass bottles. Hallelujah! Apparently some of the people living on the other side of the hotel were instead awakened by cannon shots, so I guess we can call it a draw.
I had decided to get up in time to get some hotel breakfast before the trip back home again, and, lo and behold, I was actually the last person to get to the restaurant. Either all the other people have great stamina or they just don't live as hard as I do. :-)
The day after: A picture of Peter, my room mate. He was a bit quiet all day... :-)
At 11.30 we started our journey home, and that was the end of the trip. If anyone's interested, I've published pictures from the Sandhamn sailing trip (unfortunately none from the storm, for obvious reasons).
I'm back. :-)
Not sure why I have to make riding references as soon as I start blogging after a break, but hey, it works, right? :-)
I hope all of you have had a great last three months; I sure know I have! First I thought I'd
mention some brief things which have happened in the web world, and then go on to stuff in the real world.
Another friend, Bruce Lawson, has joined Opera as a Web Evangelist, and looking at the Web Evangelist job description it looks like one hell of a job I'd love to have. Personally, I think I'd have a hard time working for a company where I'm not a big fan of their product (mostly the desktop web browser), but hey, for such a work life, maybe I can be flexible. :-)
Good luck Bruce, and congratulations to landing a top job!
And, talking about Bruce, his take on the iPhone is spot-on!. I'll write about my opinions pretty soon, but for now, read this and read it carefully:
I mean, 2 meg camera with no video? Only 16 Gig of music? Canâ€™t take the battery out? No bluetooth headphones as standard? Lock-in to one carrier? How much?!?!
Firefox download day
With the release of Firefox 3, they organized an event called Firefox download day to reach "the most software downloaded in 24 hours". Previously to this there was no existing record to beat, but hey, they set a record. :-)
Either way, I know it's a publicity stunt, and anything that can take the focus away from Internet Explorer, I support.
Google launched Knol, which is basically their own version of Wikipedia. Knol offers people the option to take credit for their work, which might motivate some people, and also to comment on articles. Personally I'm not a big fan of the comment thing, and my gut instinct tells me that I'd rather see Wikipedia with their massive following doing this, than Google owning this information too.
SD card prices
Ok, maybe this isn't news, but buying new SD cards for my digital camera, I realized that the prizes are ridiculously low! When you can get a 1 GB card for about $10, you know that storage size will not be a problem for a long long time.
Facebook status updates
Logging in to Facebook and seeing the updates from my contacts, one persons actions caught my attention. It basically went like this within a couple of hours:
[Person] is now married.
[Person] is now on a honeymoon.
[Person] is now a fan of Jamie Oliver.
WTF happened there? The first two are cute, but unless Jamie Oliver popped into your hotel room in Bora Bora (or wherever you are) and cooked a fabulous meal and/or joined you for a threesome, the honeymoon is not a time when to become a fan of a chef.
Things from the real world
Each summer when I'm on a break, and when the kids are asleep, I usually take the time to watch through some TV series I haven't had the time to watch. This summer the turn had come to Dexter. So far I've only seen five episodes of the first season, but I quite like it. His dry sense of humor when he doesn't understand mankind whatsoever is hilarious! :-)
Don't fret, this won't be as bad as you think. :-)
But, the thing is, when doing laundry for the entire family, I have a real hard time telling which panties belong to Fredrika, and which belong to my four-year old daughter Emilia. Size-wise it's almost impossible to tell, and then it should be said that Fredrika's panties nowadays are generally a bit bigger than the Victoria's Secret thongs she always wore when she first snagged me...
Student entering real life
In one of the major Swedish newspapers, they interviewed students on the brink of entering work life, and asked about their expectations, plans and hopes. One thing which caught my attention was the question "Do you think your education has prepared your for a working life", where one of them replied:
Sure, how hard can it be?
I'm not sure if he just wanted to make a comical point, or if he's just over-positive, but please, let me tell you: in the real word, where you have real deadlines, almost everything is about money and cost and you will, not might, sell out on your principles, sooner or later. Let's talk when you have worked for a decade or so, ok?
Radovan KaradÅ¾ić was arrested and brought to the Hague to the International Criminal Tribunal. I'm not going to go into politics or history here, but the fact that it took over ten years for them to find him, while he was living and working in Belgrade, was described wonderfully by a German columnist:
I can see why they had such a hard time finding him; I mean, he had grown a beard and changed his name.
During the summer, there were some very tense days, pretty much like the Cuban Missile Crisis, where you could cut through the tension in the air with a knife in our house. The reason? An ant invasion, where the ants formed a trail from the back door to the kitchen.
Luckily, they decided to retreat and order has returned to the kingdom.
McDonald's vs. Max
A big sport event was to take place in a mid-sized city in Sweden, and one of the main sponsors were McDonald's. All fine and well, except for the fact that McDonald's demanded that their main fast food competitor in Sweden, Max, should shut down entirely during the event.
Naturally, Max said: "Hell no!" and instead of being reasonable about it, the event was moved to another city. Go Max! I mean, really, we have free market competition in this country!
Why do my floss refill bags come packaged in paper that looks just like the ones I get meat in at the supermarket? Hell, I want floss, not something which looks like I bought a fresh finger for lunch.
This summer I took four consecutive weeks away from the computer, and let me tell you, those were the best weeks in my life in a long, long time. The calm and serenity which comes over you is fantastic, and with me having 11 intensive months per year in front of the computer, I sincerely need this to get perspective and balance.
That being said, I actually had a tingling feeling the day I started using the computer again, about a week ago, and soon you get involved in the same things again (for better and for worse). Some things I love getting back to, while others awaken that feeling, that need, to persuade and convince people about meaningless matters. It's best described with this:
The Olympic Games
In the Olympic Games in Beijing, Sweden failed to get even one single gold medal. Favorites and hopes fell through, one after one. Some were close to delivering, while others were complete failures. Sweden not getting a gold medal in the summer games only happened once before in the 20th century, in Seoul in 1988.
I guess we can comfort us with having the oldest gold medalist of all times, Oscar Swahn, who took a gold medal at the age of 64. The "sport"? Running deer, single-shot on. Nowadays we just call that "old drunk men in chequered shirts go into the woods and shoot shit", and it's definitely not a sport anymore.
Bondage goat zombie
Ok, off topic from basically everything here, but Bondage goat zombie must be one of the freakiest song titles I've heard in a long time.
Watching Euro2008, I soon realized that most football (soccer) players are sissies, at least compared to other sports. They fake being hurt or touched all the time in such extravagant ways it sickens me. And where's the stamina?
In the Olympic Games, the Swedish double team played a game which took almost five hours (!), and the next day they had to play the final. In Euro2008, they had to rest at least three days between each game, and then almost a week before the final. Top athletes, really?
When to not play the guitar
For those who don't know it, I play the guitar. In July, I was attending a party out in the archipelago, and at about three in the morning, out of nowhere, we got access to an acoustic guitar. And let me give an advice: if you're piss drunk, do not start with Stairway to Heaven. Also, if you're piss drunk, but you can still hear it's awful, it is beyond-kill-me-now bad.
For those of you following me solely in your favorite feed reader, please take a moment to visit robertnyman.com. I've redesigned it and I'm quite happy with the results! :-)
I remember, a long time ago, I showed a brief design suggestion I'd created for another web site to Phil Sherry, and his response was a bit like this:
Don't you think you and your visitors are above using a default filter in Photoshop?
Therefore, I do hope that everyone likes the new design and doesn't see it as an insult. :-)
Also, Isac, you're completely right: black is indeed the new black. :-)
Rob is back!
So, Nyman's back. Are you glad to have me? Can I get a hell yeah (or heaven yeah, if that suits you better)?
(Oh, please, don't let this be a no-comments post :-) )
After a spring filled with varying degrees of turmoil, summer is finally here. And with that, my friends, comes my break from development, blogging and any other computer-related activity.
The next three months, June, July and August, I'm going to spend full-time with my wonderful daughters Emilia (turning 4 in August) and Filippa (a year and a half old). Except for having the fantastic opportunity to take the time to do such a thing, it is also great for me personally to get some balance and perspective about what's important in life.
People passing away
Within the first three months this year, two persons I really liked passed away, and with that at the back of my mind, I can see no better way to spend my life than with my loved ones, cherishing life as much as I can.
I don't want to go into details, but certain things at work has made me lose the lust for the moment, hence a break is so very well needed. My hope is that I'll come back more motivated this fall, and that some factors have changed a little. Only time can tell.
To be honest, I've been quite pleased with my blogging these last months. Bringing up interesting topics and good discussions, and it just goes to tell how important blogging is to me. Please go through the Archives of all posts to find out more.
While I'm happy with almost everyone of them, I'd personally say that, for now, my favorite blog posts and code releases this year are:
As most of you know, I've put a lot of work into DOMAssistant. I'll be completely honest and say that that has left me with three general feelings:
I'm quite happy with he results we have accomplished!
I'm very grateful to have gotten to know such talented and dedicated developers.
I am bitter (true honesty now, right?) that if someone like John Resig would have released it, it would've had about 500 000 downloads by now (and no hard feelings about John, he's a true genius and a nice bloke; what I mean here is rather getting the exposure, PR etc).
I've made a couple of comments because of that last bullet, which I don't really like, since I'm normally all about people's free will and being friends with everyone, so turning into a jealous developer is not something I'm proud of. Don't worry. that's gone now, for sure.
My blogging and constructive coding as of lately, though, especially releasing dLite, made me get my passion back in regards to developing because it's FUN! :-)
Being at home
Writing this, I have actually had two weeks at home with the kids already. I've kept on blogging and releasing things, since there were a number of ideas and code I wanted to get off my chest before my leave; and since I refuse to use the computer when anyone else in the family is awake, it has been quite a few long nights as of lately. I am currently the poster boy for sleep deprivation... :-)
During these two last weeks I've learned that, when being out on excursions with the daughters, as soon as we say hi to a complete stranger, wave to someone driving by or something similar, the conversation with Emilia (the oldest) almost always goes like this:
- Dad, what's his name?
- I'm sorry honey, I have no idea.
- I'll ask mom; she knows.
If mom indeed does know the name of every man stranger where we live, I think mom and I need to have a little talk... ;-)
Learning to say your own name
Filippa's vocabulary has just exploded, and one of the things she's struggling hard to learn is saying her own name. For some time it was just "'pa", but now it has evolved into "pippa". Cute, but the problem is that "pippa" is the Swedish slang for "shag", so it's a bit interesting when she walks up to people, points to herself and says: "PIPPA"...
Man, I sure hope that behavior wears off before she becomes a teenager...
Spending time with Fredrika
Fredrika is working full time now, but I do hope that we also get to spend some time together this summer:
Yes, Fredrika's an amazon, and I'm a monkey. Really.
Since I won't be publishing any more blog posts during the summer, if you want to reach me, I'll be reading blog comments and e-mail for a couple more days, but after that, consider me unreachable till September. To be sure when I'm back again, please subscribe to my RSS feed.
Also, let me appreciate my gratitude to you for reading. You mean a lot to me, really!
Read through the Archives if you like my writing style and topics, and also, if you're interested, please try out some of my latest code:
For some time, I've wanted to play around with Adobe AIR and see what it's like. I'm also a sucker for very simple, yet addictive, games, so now was the time!
Actually, this all happened because of two reasons:
I was playing regular Memory with my oldest daughter, and being a lazy bastard, I found it to be hard work to turn back the cards when I/she was wrong, and to get them in a good random order for each play.
I wanted to learn how to develop with Adobe AIR, and see what I could do with it.
The result of this is the Adobe AIR Memory game! I had quite a good time developing this, and adding things like a timer, keyboard support for choosing a card and different games (i.e. different card themes: Travel and Barbapapa so far) didn't make things less fun!
If you haven't installed Adobe AIR yet, just download the latest version of Adobe AIR, install it and you're good to go!
Then download Memory 0.5 0.6 and play till the fingers bleed!
PS. Naturally, there's a boss mode as well, so if you need to hide the application fast, just press "B" and it will minimize itself. :-) DS.
Now there's a plugin available to get the best features of ASP.NET into Ruby on Rails.
Missing some of the core and strong ASP.NET functionality when you're working with Ruby on Rails? Fret not, an old ASP.NET developer has ported some of the cream of the crop in a plugin. Read all about it in Acts as ASP.NET (a Ruby on Rails Plugin)
PS. Yeah, yeah, I know this somewhat akin to kicking someone lying down. But hell, it was too funny to give it a miss! :-) Many thanks to Morgan Roderick (in Danish) for the tip! DS.
When I read the news this morning, it blew my mind! Microsoft will use the Gecko layout engine for IE 8.
Chris Wilson, IE Team Lead, says:
We have had extensive discussions about this internally, and the conclusion is to follow our motto, "don't break the web". As a result, we analyzed the other web browser vendor's rendering engines, and our choice at the end of the day fell on using Gecko for Internet Explorer 8.
It has consistently proven its excellence both in a cross-platform manner and having already been successfully incorporated in a number of web browsers. Therefore, Microsoft will take part in the work to continually improve Gecko and at the same time be able to offer Internet Explorer on all major platforms (Windows, Mac OS X and Linux distributions).
He also, somewhat surprisingly, stated:
We have followed Mr. Nyman's writings for quite some time now, and while his opinions about Microsoft have seen harsh at a first glance, his takes have always been right at the core of our problems. We thank him for his professional reflections, and hope that we can continue to work together to create a better web browser experience for end users.
I've always liked hair. Beautiful hair makes people look fantastic, and I think more personality is conveyed through hair than we think.
My oldest daughter, Emilia, three and a half years old, have only gotten somewhat crude haircuts from a local hairdresser, or Fredrika just cutting the necessary parts. So, yesterday it was time for her to go to a real professional hairdresser downtown Stockholm.
It was a major excursion, just her and her grandmother/my mother-in-law, who had a day out with riding buses, subways and walking around in the city. Great fun for her. When her hair was cut, they braided the cut-off part and put it in a bag for her to take home, and she got some pretty hair clips.
But...? She looks like...
All fine and well, and definitely what was best for hair, since it had gotten quite worn. We like her to have long hair, and she likes it too, so she's a very pretty little girl with long blond hair. Unfortunately I got home a bit late from work yesterday and she was asleep then, so I never got to see what her new hairdo was like.
You have no idea how surprised I was this morning when I looked at her, and she looked just like... my mother-in-law!
I mean, I completely understand that they had to curt it shorter, but not this short! It's an old-lady haircut; you know, fairly short hair, with very short and straight bangs. I was appalled! Why would you want a three-year old to look like a 60-year old woman?
Anyway, she was just so proud of her new haircut, so that makes it a little better. I guess we just have to wait for it to grow out, and next time, I will take her to the hairdresser.
So, if you see me walking around with something that looks like a real tiny old lady, it's probably just me and my daughter going for a walk...
The other night we had a company meeting outlining our new organization.
Our CEO presented a chart over our organization with all different parts, to show us what company structure we aim to evolve into. Taking a closer look, though, I discovered this interesting part:
Customer care (S & M)
Really? Personally I think it's a great depiction of that customer care is all about, but not really the most suitable abbreviation, right? :-)
Apparently it stands for Sales & Marketing, but at least for me, that wasn't the first association. They'll probably change this soon...
However, after that in one of the presentations they were describing customer relations, and how important it is to distinguish the pleasure/pain factor. Are you kidding me?! With what was mentioned above, I'm starting to see a worrying pattern here... :-)
I just felt a bit too restrained with Twitter last night to describe what actually went down. So, this will be too personal and perhaps too graphic. Consider yourselves warned... :-)
Imagine last night about eleven in the evening. Our bathroom downstairs consists of a toilet, a bath tub with shower and then an inner room, with washing machine and a table for changing diapers. It has a door that you can close, so no one in the actual bathroom will see you, and vice versa.
After a weekend with the family and running around playing with kids, I thought I'd let myself have some quiet time in the bathroom. Meaning, sitting down, doing no. 2 and winding down before yet another week in the mines at work. I just started doing my business, when Fredrika knocks on the door and says that she has to come in and change diaper on our youngest (currently sleeping) daughter Filippa, 15-months old.
Somewhat annoyed by being disturbed, I understand that this has to happen. While Fredrika and I aren't shy of each other, we haven't gotten to that stage in our relation that we can have a shit while the other person is in the same room (and I hope we never reach that either). So, feeling a bit awkward, I tell her that she can come in, walk straight through to the inner room and close the door.
That way I can finish up, wipe myself and get the hell out of there. The door opens and...
Fredrika comes into the room with Filippa in her arms. She has just woken up, and out of nowhere she starts to vomit; like, projectile-style. She throws up all over me, sitting there on the toilet. Fredrika hurries her into the bath tub so she can spew whatever needs to come out, and then use the shower to clean her.
Perfectly normal situation with a kind. except... There I am, still sitting on the toilet with shit in my ass and vomit all over me. And I don't really want to start wiping myself either while Fredrika is still in there. It would just feel... nasty.
So, my only option is to sit there in that lovely odor that throw up gives away, still with the need to use some toilet paper to become decent; looking on to how things progress with poor Filippa.
Filippa was throwing up some more times during the night, but today she actually seems to feel well; she even has an appetite now! Apparently she burped up something at lunch today, but since she ran away from Fredrika, laughing, when she tried to change her shirt, I think things are just fine. :-)
Ever felt that whatever you do, it doesn't matter? No one notices your work, knows what you do or even knows your name. Then, my friend, you're a stealth coder.
Being a stealth coder is something akin to being a Systems Administrator. As long as everything works, no one credits or cares about what you do, but if something goes wrong, you're scape goat number one. And if you then fix whatever problem there was, you immediately go back to being invisible to mere mortals again.
Stealth coders come from a long line of ninjas, and has carried on that tradition with proudness and a high head. It's not the fame or recognition you do it for, it's for the work itself. You place a lot more value in doing your trade as best as humanly possible and take only comfort in sheer quality.
You know this applies to you, right? Everybody, stand up, join hands and say:
I'm a stealth coder and I'm proud of it.

Swedish weather tracking company SMHI has released the measured hours of sunlight during December for different parts of Sweden.
What this means is the actual time you can see the sun and it's not obstructed by clouds and a heavy overcast. One place called VÃ¤xjÃ¶ had only 20 minutes of sun during the whole of December! That is 0,045% of that entire month!
LuleÃ¥ had one hour of sun, but it's so far north so their median value is only five hours anyway. Some of the parts that had the most sun had about 60 hours of sun. Not too shabby in comparison. :-)
No wonder Sweden has such a high suicide rate...
Hillary Clinton goes for Change, and Obama for Hope. Currently, Obama is doing very well, although (not really knowing a lot about it) change sounds a lot better than hope to me. Either way, wouldn't it be great for USA to get their first colored or female president?
Totally narcissistic, but looking through the pictures from 2007, I found two of my favorites depicting me.
Of course I should have chosen some pictures of me and my family, looking all happy, but I think you will prefer these. I chose them because I find them funny, and most, just unexpected and unusual from all other pictures. :-)
When we develop web sites, we stumble across problems, right? And sometimes, just sometimes, we do learn from them and know what to do next time. At other times, though, the problem is something we never would have expected.
I thought I'd share two of these situations where the problem was far from what everyone thought at first.
The guy responsible for the servers did some intense research (another problem factor was that the servers were stationed abroad). The conclusion he came to was that the heat and hot exhaust air coming from other servers in the rack. This issue was addressed, and as far as I know the problem was gone.
This has never been scientifically verified, though no matter what was the actual cause, it was from any of the the usual suspects.
The architect in my current project told me about when he was working at the major airport in Stockholm, Arlanda. One of their systems went down for a while, at the exact same time each morning. It automatically restarted, but that wasn't sufficient, so someone had to manually restart it again.
They started thinking that it had to be an outside factor causing this problem every day, so they went to the server room at the time of the usual server outage. Lo and behold, when the clock strikes, a cleaning woman walks in, pulls out the cord for the server, plugs her vacuum cleaner in and starts vacuuming. Once done, she put the server cord back in the outlet again and left. :-)
Sometimes, things are more FUBAR than you can even begin to fathom. :-)
I'm just back from @media Ajax, which was a great experience! I thought I'd split up my stories in two posts: this one about the journey and social aspects, and the next one about the presentations. This post will be long enough anyway, so get a drink, lean back, and enjoy the ride. :-)
Flight and airport
Sunday night I was flying alone to London with SAS, with the destination London City Airport. Emil had already gone to London on Friday, with a special friend, so we had scheduled to met up at our hotel. The flight went very well, except for the landing part, which took forever, and was a bit, eh, wobbly. Apparently, previous to my arrival, there had been a sort of gale blowing for some days so I can imagine flying a plane wasn't great fun.
We landed and naturally there was some problem with the getting out of the plane and having somewhere to dock. Luckily, I was sitting pretty close towards the back of the plane and since they opened the back door instead I got out pretty fast. That is, down the stairs straight out into the rain on the tarmac, with basically no clue where to go but following the other drenched people. Security didn't seem to matter that much, since I literally had to run across to the closest building before I got hit by a gargantuan tank truck.
Well inside, I walked through seemingly endless corridors before I walked past something that vaguely looked like a conveyor belt where, I guess, baggage could supposedly be put. Instead, I went to take a leak and then kept on walking, 'cause surely that couldn't have been where I was supposed to collect my bag, right? Wrong.
Before I knew it, a dazed and confused Robert was standing in the arrival hall, without his bag. I told some staff that I missed my bag and had to get back in to collect it. The reply:
No sir, you can't go in there.
Dammit! So, they had to make a call in for someone to bring out my bag once they had identified it etc. It didn't take that long, though, and then I walked out into the rain to get a cab.
I think all my life I've seen documentaries that London taxi drivers are the best in the world, basically finding their way anywhere. They have to pass this test called The Knowledge to verify their superhuman skills. With this in mind, I walked up to the taxi stand and to the first cab in line.
Seeing it was a female driver made me happy, since I haven't met many women driving a cab. The conversation went like this:
-Hi, I want to go to Comfort Inn Victoria
- I have no idea where that is. Thinking that the name isn't that explanatory, my stance is "Fair enough" and I say:
- Yeah, ok. The address is 18-24 Belgrave Road.
- I have no idea where that is. Ok... Getting a bit worried now. She goes:
- But get in and I will find it.
So, I got in, told her the postal code as well, and she entered into her hidden GPS navigator. I also asked if she accepted credit cards. I only got a mumbling back, but assumed that it was an affirmative answer and that of course they take credit cards, this is 2007, right? Yeah, sure...
At every red light, I saw her closing her eyes just a tad too long, not making me feel any better. Also, she never really told me about the GPS navigator, so I never got any feedback that she actually had any clue to where we were going. Anyway, I know my way a little in central London and I could tell that she was going in the correct general direction at least. Finally on Belgrave road, she seemed to completely ignore that I had told her the street number of the hotel, so she instead persisted stopping at every house on Belgrave Road before we got to the correct one. Needless to say, naturally we had started in the wrong end of the street, just to make it even more challenging and "adventurous"...
We found the hotel, at last, and I gave her my credit card to pay. She looks at me, and sneers that she doesn't accept credit cards, that she told me that before. Therefore, a lot of my Â£ cash was lost very soon. Left no tip whatsoever, and I soon got out of the cab just to get into the hotel and calm down.
I checked into the hotel, met up with Emil and then got settled into my room. My friend Stuart unfortunately couldn't attend the conference, but at least we made plans to meet up and have dinner. He came by the hotel close to 20.30 and we went to this local pizza parlor, who served one funky (as in weird) garlic bread. It was great seeing Stuart again, and after dinner we went on to have ourselves a well-deserved pint of Guinness. Stuart insisted on paying for everything, so I definitely owe him. Luckily, he'll probably never come to Stockholm, so I should be home free. :-)
Once back at the hotel, I got to bed and tried to make it comfortable. Almost asleep, the fire alarm just above the bed goes off with a terrible noise, basically throwing me out of bed. Being a guy, I hope it will all go away if I go and take a piss. That only seemed to make things worse, though, hearing the fire alarm going off in every room in the entire hotel. Went back to bed, sure that it was just a malfunction, and hoped it would all stop soon.
Lying there for a while, leering towards the door of my room, I start to wonder if the light coming in under the door is a somewhat stronger shade of orange than what is healthy or normal. I decide to call the front desk to check whether there's actually a real fire, or if it's just a technical mishap. A man answers, and sounds a bit stressed, to say the least. He informs me that indeed there's a technical problem with the fire alarm and that they're working on it.
Feeling a bit better hearing that, I turn out the lights again, and soon enough the fire alarm is gone. Next morning, I go down to have breakfast, and the fire alarm goes off once again...
After going through the pouring rain to the conference (Emil: my shoes are water proof. Perky bastard.), we got there in good time to register and get our goodie bag. Well, rather just a bag. A note pad and a pen isn't really goodies for me... :-)
We got some good seats and watched the conference start. A small personal note here is that it was a problem with the wireless connection, as it always is at conferences. Wireless is great in theory, but it sucks in practice. Ethernet cables to the people!
There was great catering so between every second presentation or so, we had the chance to get tea/coffee and something to eat to keep us happy. I'm fairly sure I overdosed on tea during the two conference days... First break the first day, I met up with my good friend Chris Mills and Bruce Lawson, and that fundamentally sick sense of humor really threw me off that early in the morning. Great blokes, though, really.
On the other hand, it was good to meet Marco again after he left Sweden and his Yahoo! colleague Tom Hughes-Croucher (who interviewed everyone but me for Yahoo! TV... :-( ); say hi to Derek and Jeremy Keith once again and also seeing Frances Berriman who, for some unexplainable reason, is nice enough to read my blog now and then (really, Frances, despite your stern "Let's-get-everyone-out-of-the-catering-room-NOW" attitude, I'm sure you can do better than me ;-) ).
After the first day of presentations, pretty much everyone gathered at a nearby pub with an @media tab to make us even happier, and it was good to have casual talks with a lot of people. I had a chat with John Resig, trying to convince him to take jQuery off the market so I could get some more wind in the sails for DOMAssistant, but he seemed reluctant. Damn those genius CSS selectors...
A guy from Finland, Harri (spelling reservation here) also came up to me, telling me that he reads my ramblings and expressed interest in putting together a Geek Meet in Finland. Great idea, and if anyone is interested, let me know and I'll try to get you in touch with each other.
Something that really made me happy as a child was the amount of recognition I got during the first day. I mean. sure, I know a few people read my blog, but to know that all the people and their work which I tremendously look up to, actually also know who I am is wonderful! I've worked hard to get decent at what I do, but I still get touched if in any way have helped someone out or just slightly influenced them whatsoever.
And really, I'm not a famous name in the web development community. I can't handle people who I don't know who they are coming up to me and saying that they like what I write. So, I usually apologize for having wasted their time, but also humbly thank them for reading.
After the pub, me, Bruce Lawson, Jim O'Donnell, Chris Mills and PPK (Peter-Paul Koch) went and had a nice dinner at this hidden-away Japanese place that Bruce knew about. What was truly amazing during the dinner was that at times there were the ugliest word in man's vocabulary flying around, dirty jokes so far below the belt and just general nastiness, and then suddenly the conversation would go into what an impact you will have on children as a teacher, and the situation in Burma and the history which has lead to the current circumstances.
I truly love people who are so versatile, and don't just act as expected, but instead as real human beings with very different interests. After the dinner, we got back to the first pub where PPK was kind enough to treat us to beers, and then some of us went on to yet another pub.
Chris and I were telling each other horrid stories from our past, and really, I'm happy to say that no one other heard the things we were talking about. When we meet, we turn into giggly little school girls, and the secrets we reveal to each other are really meant to be hidden forever from the public eyes and ears.
Anyway, Chris was crashing at Jim's place, so being a good friend, I advised them to have a safe word for their upcoming deviant night activities, to make sure no one got harmed... ;-)
Also, Bruce's father instincts kicked in when he got a cab for us back to our respective hotels and made sure young little innocent Robert didn't get lost in the streets of dangerous London. Thanks, Bruce!
No rain! I truly think that Tuesday morning was the first (and only) time when it wasn't raining. The everyday weather in London just about matches the worst thinkable fall weather in Sweden. Then we get snow and have a beautiful white landscape. They don't.
Dinner and taxi ride
Me, Emil and his company on this trip had a dinner at a pub next to our hotel before the taxi ride to the airport. I think I probably had one of the dishes with the most cholesterol in the world. It was a meat platter with fried chicken, onion rings, sausages and, to top it off, garlic bread with slices of bacon on it, and then dipped in melted cheese.
We got into the pre-booked taxi to the airport, when I suddenly couldn't find my camera. I convinced the taxi driver to go back to the pub, completely sure that I had dropped it out of my coat pocket there. Emil kept on nagging that I should check my pockets again, and I just wanted to tell him to shut up, when I found the camera in a pocket I (thought I) had already checked. I told the cab driver to never mind, and please take us to Heathrow instead.
Airport security again
Once at the airport, I went through the security check, got my coat and cell phone, went through the passport control and on to the shoe checker machine. When I sat down to untie my shoes, I realized: where's my backpack?! Sure that I must've missed it at the security check, I walked up to the passport officer and told him that I forgot my bag. His reply:
On the airplane, I got to sit alone, since it was so crowded that there weren't three seats available next to each other. Instead I, interestingly, ended up sitting next to the principal of the Swedish School in London and we had a good conversation.
I asked him about statistics of Swedes living in London, and found out that officially there are over 50 000 Swedes resident in London. I'm pretty sure you can almost double that figure to get a correct number.
Airplane trivia: an air plane is always slightly slanting, in case you haven't noticed, so if you drop your water bottle in the aisle (completely hypothetical, of course), it will roll all the way back to the back of the entire plane. Just so you know.
Taxi ride in Sweden
Once at Arlanda airport in Sweden, I got a taxi to go home. Me and the driver, who was originally from Iran, got into such an interesting conversation about his country of origin, that when we got to my house, we sat in the car and kept on talking probably as long as the cab ride was. Eventually we got out of the car, got my bags, and we actually shook hands and hoped we would run into each other some day in the future. How often has that happened to you?
And, oh, this taxi accepted credit card payments...
The last days have been truly fantastic, and coming home late last night, I had a hard time falling asleep. First, I was so happy about all the interesting people I have run into in such a short amount of time, and then extremely happy to see my my beloved family again.
The moral to all this is: talk to everyone you met! You never know when it will be the conversation that changes your life.
As you might have noticed, I love going to concerts and experiencing live music in general. Yesterday was a special night for me, seeing the band which was the first major rock concert I ever attended, play again in Sweden.
In 1986, 12 years old, I went to see Twisted Sister play at Isstadion in Stockholm. I remember that outside of the arena we haggled down the price for two scarves from 40 SEK down to 50 SEK for two. I tied it around my head like a bandana, and there I was, eager like never before and filled up with anticipation. I might have had glasses that were slightly too big for me, and perhaps I didn't look all that cool, but it didn't really matter. I was happy! :-)
21 years later, I get the chance to see Twisted Sister play once again on Swedish soil. Many mixed emotions: 21 years since last time, I'm ancient! And in that case, how old must they be?! How will it sound? Will I be disappointed and perhaps ruin a good memory, or will it be a wonderful trip down memory lane?
Lucky to say, it was the latter and I had a great, great time!
Nowadays, Twisted Sister play very few gigs, and according to the band themselves yesterday, they have only played 55 gigs in the latest five year, since they reunited. Last night was only their fifth gig in a row, and I believe they will be going home to the US after this. I have to say that I'm amazed that it basically sounds the same like it did back in the day (meaning the 80s)! Maybe they're not the tightest band on the planet, but if they had more road time, I'm sure that wouldn't be a problem.
Another thing that hit me, and especially opposed to some other reunited bands I've seen, Twisted Sister seemed to seriously enjoy themselves, and the sheer happiness and enthusiasm the band radiated was fantastic! TO me it seemed they were exuberant. Not everyone must be dead serious all the time, but instead just focus on having fun. Something more people definitely should focus on.
Basically, they were wearing the same clothes like they did during the Stay Hungry-era, and they wore identical make-up as well. If you didn't get too close, you could actually imagine that you were back in 1986, seeing a great and entertaining band. Their physical appearances have changed a little since 20 years ago, but not any major chances (except for a wig on one of them, that is).
Dee blew me away yesterday! The energy he has, constantly giving everything he has, was outstanding. His crowd interaction, anecdotes and talks were very funny and amusing, and I must say that he's a fantastic front man! I'm sure he has also influenced a lot of the best front men we see today.
What struck me the most yesterday was that everyone, both the band and the audience, were so happy! The crowd, to say the least, was very mixed with people who would probably never even talk to each other under normal circumstances. But once the music started, everyone was delighted, smiling and feeling a togetherness which is very rare to see. I was a touched by feeling so good, and also to share this nostalgic moment with all these other people, who it apparently meant a great deal for too.
If ever get the chance to see Twisted Sister live, and these moments are rare, make sure not to miss out on it!
There are few concerts where I'd say, the day after, that I'd love to go see the same show that night again. But yesterday is without a doubt something I would love to relive tonight again!
However, this evening is dedicated to explaining to my daughters why I, last night, would rather go see men with make-up dancing on a stage, than spending time with them instead...
Oh well, I just guess I'm an SMF at times. :-)
IKEA, one of the things that Sweden is most well-known for (except for hot blondes and shady movies produced some decades ago...), is so popular (read: at least well-visited) here in Sweden that you cannot believe.
During this summer, I made a lot of consecutive visits to IKEA. We bought a bed and a set of drawers, since we made some heavy furnishing alterations at home. My dear Fredrika loves IKEA; I don't. Or rather, I have to say that overall IKEA is a well-working company with very competitive products and prices, and the staff, especially the ones handling returns and broken items, are very professional.
But I'm not just that much into finding cheap items which I don't really need, just because it won't cost me as much as the same items, designed, would. It's about the same as if I would buy an Acer laptop only since the price is very low. I just don't want the crap.
The result of IKEA's pricing and vast range of products is that Swedes (and I guess people in other countries too) make pilgrimage travel to the stores in evenings, and especially weekends, to make some bargains. For people without cars, there are a number of buss-loads of soon-to-be customers dropped off at the entrance each and every day, and they are more excited than people going to, for instance, concerts.
Lots of people + lots of families + lots of tired, bored kids doesn't result in the most optimal place and environment to spend your time. People start arguing, kids behave the way adults really want to behave under such circumstances, but are too polite to do, and it is general chaos and mayhem (more or less).
When I was at IKEA for the third day in a row to exchange products, I couldn't help but asking the guy at the cashier:
Excuse me, but how many children do you hear crying every day?
He looked at me with his very tired eyes (although he was probably only 21 years of age, or so), sighed and replied:
Well, in the morning there are some, and then it grows quiet. For a while. But then it becomes a sort of crescendo of crying in the evening! I really don't know where to go or how to stay sane, just because of the enormous sound wall.
I smiled, payed for my stuff, and went out into the fresh air. Having spent some recent intensive time at IKEA, I was sure it is also the home of break-ups.
I thought it would be interesting to give some examples of how some terms, from my posts, are ranked in Google; both funny and more serious ones. It seems like I know How to get a good search engine ranking. :-)
It should be mentioned that these rankings are at the time of writing this post, and that they will definitely change over time; some for good, others for bad. Also, none of the searches are performed using quotes. So, lets start the self indulgence...
Yesterday, me and Mr. StenstrÃ¶m took the car to a nearby mall to have some lunch.
Once we got there, the parking lot was filled to the brim with cars. We circled around, trying to find a spot so we didn't have to walk for half an hour to the lunch place. Suddenly we found an opening; only downside was that it was reserved for people with a handicap.
I just saw a guy with crutches then and jokingly said that we should take them and out them in the window of the car, to be eligible to park in handicap spot. Then Emil totally topped it with some good web nerd humor:
We should put a copy of WCAG in the window, that should be sufficient.
If you don't get this joke, lucky you. We web dev geeks love internal humor... :-)
This post might be a bit direct, or too open about my life, so refrain from reading if you don't want to know (or else you might stop reading what I write altogether). Or maybe it just seems plain boring, and I totally understand you; it does get funnier at the end, though. If you're not discouraged yet, allow me to describe my last three days.
Sleeping in. Fredrika got up with the children to give them breakfast and I slept about two extra hours. Soon realized that we had to start to take in everything in our yard before it gets too cold. Not surprised at all, it was an extremely windy day with occasional rain drops, so after some time I couldn't feel my fingers. Got in, showered, and got ready for the evening.
Birthday party for a vigorous 82-year old. I was doing a little dance for Emilia, not thinking that everybody else could see me from the dinner table. The birthday "boy" (man) looked at me said that it was the first time he had ever seen me dance. Oh, I knew I should've used my best moves...
Had sex with (or made love to; it's all in the eye of the beholder) Fredrika. When you have small kids, this is usually a fairly rare occasion, so you want it to be special. Midway I got a sudden cramp from the area where I have my scar after the surgery when I had my appendix removed, something which has plagued me the last three years on and off. Got up, tried to stretch it away, which always succeeds. More sweet loving, followed by sleep.
Got up early with Emilia and Filippa (naturally, they almost always wake up one hour earlier in the morning when it's my turn). Today we were having old friends to my family as guests, so until lunch time, it was cleaning, hiding all extra stuff one seems to have, cleaning the sewage well in the bathroom since it was full of hair (and really, given that I'm about the only person in our house with virtually no hair on the head, this is not fair).
Trying to make a house's interior look like actual organized adults live there, although you have two small children, is no small feat. Especially not if the children are around, doing counter-strikes to your every move. And, of course, you can't yell at the children for playing, so you have to be pedagogical as hell and a the same time try to bring some order to the chaos.
Lunch went great, long into the afternoon. We then visited our neighbors, who have just moved to a new house in a new area nearby, and then went home for dinner and bedtime for the kids. I put Filippa to bed, and walked into the kitchen to get a glass of water. Suddenly I felt some real hot water dripping on my foot. The dishwasher was leaking...
Fredrika put Emilia to bed and I put about one hour's work into basically everything you can do to a dishwasher that is legal in Sweden, but to no avail. And seriously, why does any sediment smell like it has arisen from the pits of doom? It is impossible to clean every area unless you have fingers small as a match (which leads me to think that they are designed for children to work with, which is a terrible thought), so how come the decomposing is so vicious?
Anyway, gave up for the night, watched a little TV and then went to bed.
Had an important planning day, 8 hours, at a client's place, starting at nine. Overslept, since Emilia wake up a bit late. Maybe I should start setting an alarm clock again; till now I've only set the kids...
Had breakfast together with Emilia, and hurried into the shower. Got out. Naked. My mother in law had come by, of course. Luckily Fredrika had put my clothes in the bathroom when she did, so I didn't have to flash myself for her (this time, that is).
Got into the car and drove off. A very loud beep caught my attention, signaling that I was almost out of gas. Decided to go for it anyway. Realized after a while that I had forgotten everything but my computer. Went home, got the cell phone and the rest, and went off again. Lots of traffic. Got to the customer, with mere drips of gas left, and of course the spot where I usually park was taken.
Went away a bit and parked in an illegal spot. Ran into the office and made it in time with about one minute to spare. A whole day full of meetings, and at three I go to the bathroom. Did my business and pushed the liquid soap dispenser to wash my hands. The nozzle came off and soap started pouring down onto the sink and the floor. With slippery soapy hands I tried to reconstruct the dispenser as I think it should be set up, and finally the downpour stopped.
Wiped off the sink and went back to the meeting. At a slow moment I looked over to the wall in the conference room and saw a plaque reading:
Max seven people allowed at the same time in this room.
Needless to say, our count was higher than that, so the complete lack of oxygen in my body got its explanation.
So, that was my last three days. Have you had a nice weekend?
Today was my fifth day consulting at a customer's place, where I'm working side by side with Emil, and something unexpected happen.
I had downloaded some of my travel pictures to have as a nice screen saver on my computer while it's locked. I had a meeting to attend, so I activated the screen saver and went off to the conference room. When I came back Emil tilted his head gave me a weird disapproving look, and he uttered a small (begging) request:
You really should look over your screen saver images...
Apparently, it turned out, that amongst 1200 or so of travel pics, naturally the one where I'm naked showed up and was displayed on my nice 17-inch glossy laptop screen, for everyone's eyes...
Sometimes I'm amazed that I can keep a job. :-)
Last night I went to see MÃ¶tley CrÃ¼e play at the Globe arena in Stockholm (even if you don't like MÃƒÂ¶tley CrÃƒÂ¼e, read on, it might be entertaining anyway :-) ).
Way back, in the 80s and maybe early 90s they had some good material, but after that it has pretty much been uninteresting. But, they've managed to live on their old stuff (Shout at the Devil etc) and their attitude and media coverage, and then especially Tommy Lee.
Let me share how yesterday was for me:
Since I live in a suburb north of Stockholm, I decided to take my car there to easier get home after the gig. Besides, I didn't have any plans on drinking so it felt like a good choice. However, what I had missed was that yesterday was the day before a holiday (June 6th, the Swedish National Day), and everyone was going with their cars to their country homes to desperately stay away from home for one day.
It was also a very warm day yesterday, around 27 degrees Celsius/81 degrees Fahrenheit, traffic jams like you would never believe, cars overheating, road work, you name it. I was stuck in our car with no air condition, and I had to have the windows up or I would've died from exhaust fumes. So, basically, I was in my sauna (sorry, I meant to type 'car' but my recollections forced me to choose another word) constantly drinking water from a 1Ã‚Â½ litre bottle.
All in all, it took me 2 hours (!) to manage to get the about 40 kilometers/25 miles to the arena. I parked my car and started to run towards the Globe arena, making just a short pit stop at a huge tree to pee out all the water I had drunk. When I was running there, sporting a Metallica t-shirt and my bottle with an unidentifiable transparent liquid in it, lots of rockers hailed me for, as they saw it, running with some home-brewn booze or something.
With all those encouraging cheers, hell, one guy even saluted me, I really couldn't bare revealing the truth for them: this old man needs water to make it through a rock concert.
What's the rush?
By now you have probably started wondering why I was in such a rush. The thing is, I just love to go crazy in the mosh pit, getting as close to the stage as possible and seeing the musicians faces close up. As probably most people, I have a lot of steam to occasionally let loose, so what better way than to do it in a happily manner?
So, to be able to get within the front enclosure closest to the stage, one has to invest a couple of hours waiting outside the arena before they open the doors. Luckily, my brother Martin, who I was going with, had been waiting there for about an hour when I finally got there.
Just one more thing
At about 18.00, they could open the doors anytime now, I ran up to Martin, left him my (now super-cool drinking binge) bottle, and continued to run to finish two more things that had to be done. The first one was to cash in a couple of ZZ Top tickets for their now cancelled Stockholm gig in July (I wouldn't want them on me in the mosh pit; besides, I figured I would have had plenty of time to do it before the concert), the other was to grab something to eat at McDonalds for martin and me, to be able to make it through the evening.
Got into the ticket place, where they naturally couldn't get their ticket machine to accept the not-laser-precision-super-flat tickets... She had to make a call to the office to verify that it was ok, and I asked her if I could run and get some burgers while i was waiting. She said yes.
Got into McDonalds, bought the burgers (after the cashier initially mistakenly registered 1 Big Mac and 8 (!) cheeseburgers), and ran back to the ticket place. Just in time, as she got the information she needed, so she could give me the money for the tickets. Grabbed them, and ran back to Martin.
Standing in line
Got to Martin, and apparently a guy had just gotten up from the ground and thrown up, just before I came running with my burger bag. Luckily, I didn't get that visual, and the pile of vomit was lying sufficiently far away so while I could see it, at Ieast I didn't have to smell it.
Normally, at concerts there's always a number of people who are drunk, but I have to say that a vast majority seemed to be that in this line. We ate our burgers, and actually got to wait about 30 minutes more before they finally opened the door. Once inside the doors, the poor state of the ticket machines alternatively the drunken state of the attendees to the gig, resulted in that it took ages to get in, since about every second person couldn't get the ticket machines to accept their tickets (I was one of them, but I completely blame the guy who was in front of me harassing the machine...).
This was about the time where Martin, 6 years younger than me, turned to me and said:
Man, all the kids here are about half my age. I couldn't even begin to imagine what it must fell like for you.
Thanks, Martin, rub it in. I'm only 32 (going on 33), ok?
In the arena
Finally, we were inside and got down the stairs to the floor. We showed our tickets to one of the security guards, and once past that I saw that the entrance to the front enclosure was still open, so I decided to make a run for it.
Apparently this was a bad move, since a screech that sounded like it came right out of hell, ringing in my ears, vaguely articulated the words:
"WALK! DON'T RUN!"
These words were accompanied by a frantic security guard, in her all-time-best state of frenzy, who literally clawed after me as she uttered that scream. Naturally, my running came to a halt, while I half-eagerly, half-shocked, eyed the Medusa woman who I apparently had offended so badly.
Really, if you take a look at me and the other people who were there, you would probably decide that I would probably the least harmful guy in the entire place (although I'm not :-) ). Anyway, I walked to the front enclosure, with Martin just behind me, and we got in. Mission accomplished.
Opening act: Papa Roach
I've never really listened to Papa Roach, but I have to say that their ambitious attitude and genuine will to entertain the crowd won me over. The beginning of their set was good, the middle so-so, and the ending good. But, most notably, they were constantly giving all they had.
Most of the crowd seemed to like them, or at least think they were decent, and this is probably partly out of gratitude, since most opening acts tend to suck. Hard. So, kudos to Papa Roach is all I can say.
Just after 21.00 MÃƒÂ¶tley got on stage. They opened with Dr. Feelgood followed by Shout at the Devil, so the place went wild! Soon after that they had also gone through Home Sweet Home, Looks That Kill, Wild Side and Primal Scream. The crowd was mostly nuts all the time and ecstatic to see their idols. Sadly to say, that feeling didn't seem mutual.
First of all, I could hardly hear Vince Neil sing at all (except for the fact that he has gotten porky as well). Second, since at a concert it might be hard to distinguish every tone, I soon realized how much alike their different songs sound. It was all a mash-up of similar riffs. Got to give Mick Mars the benefit of coolness factor, though. Sure, he had some white make-up in his face, but with his hair, his hat, his look, it looked like Death himself had walked into the room.
I had hoped for a dazzling scene show as well, and granted, they had a lot of pyro effects, small fireworks and explosions going off about every minute. I'm definitely a sucker for all of that, but it was so often, and not alternated in any way, I soon got sick of it. It seemed so blatantly obvious that instead of delivering musically, or by at least varying the effects, they just kept on, and on, and on, with the same effects.
Also, at concerts, there are always interesting things to note: for instance, there's always one guy in the audience at every gig, shouting out replies to what the singer is saying or singing. Kind of like a heckler at a standup comedy event, but with a very positive attitude about what's going on on stage.
Another thing was the big buff guy standing in front of Martin. He was very happy and enthusiastic about the music and the show, although he seemed afraid of loud bangs, so he would violently flinch every time one of the numerous explosions took place on stage. Thoroughly entertaining. :-)
Overall, MÃƒÂ¶tley seemed uninspired, and it definitely showed when they got off the stage after only an hour and a half, with no encore whatsoever. Grade-wise, I'd maybe give it a 3 with 5 being the best, because it was still ok. I just think I was disappointed since it didn't meet my expectations.
Also, it's a bit of a thumb in the eye with such a short set and no encores, knowing that Tommy Lee had a planned after-party where he had the strength to be a DJ and keep on going all night. It would be nice to share at least some of that time and those efforts with the paying fans.
My verdict is that it is worth seeing MÃƒÂ¶tley CrÃƒÂ¼e, anno 2007, live if you haven't before (I had once, in New York in 2000). But if you have, you're way better off putting on the Shout at the Devil record while reading The Dirt.
For those of you who don't know it, I have a somewhat Jekyll/Hyde side to me, and part of the results from that is the web site Fucked. that I run with some friends.
It basically consists of serious topics about what's wrong in the world, mixed with just plain fun fucked-up stuff, and when I have the time, it's a place for me to ventilate or share hilarious things.
And now, finally, the Fucked. store is here, sporting the great logo (not designed by me)!
But that's not all, you can write a slogan and win some cool merchandise!
So, please, take part in the contest, and if you haven't been there before, I hope you enjoy the Fucked. web site. :-)
Yesterday, a gloomy and rainy day in Stockholm, and with the suburb train situation messed up, I felt generally depressed. How to feel better? With some humor and aggression, of course, and what better way to find that than watching Henry Rollins in Stockholm!
Actually, sitting on the train, which was way late, I browsed through one of the free morning papers handed out everywhere. I turned the page and, lo and behold, Henry Rollins was making a spoken word performance in Stockholm the very same evening! Cursing myself for missing this, I called my brother and asked if he could get some tickets online, but apparently there were only available at convenience store resellers, since it was the same day as the event. I went by one on my way to work (in the puring rain), and yes, they had two tickets left!
I've seen Henry perform two times before, in Stockholm 2001 at GÃƒÂ¶ta Lejon and in 2005 in Rival, both times outstanding. I also had the luck of actually meeting him and talking a little at SXSW in Austin in 2006, so I really didn't want to miss this evening.
I think Henry was in good form, and he always performs these killer sets that get close to three hours long. This time, in the same Venue as last time, Rival, he did an encore, which I haven't seen before. Lots of good stuff in it, by then he was all worked up and excited. Overall, the show was good, but it also felt different to the previous ones I've been to. He was actually less serious this time, and he had completely new ideas and schemes; I love it when performers evolve!
However, and this might probably offend Henry to no liking: he actually seemed happy. He was smiling and the tone in his stories was generally more positive, no matter how hard the punchlines were. In some weird way, it felt like he has fallen in love. But fret not! The show was still filled with aggression and disliking for various things in our world that are fucked up, so we definitely got our well-needed dose of rants.
How I felt after? Much better, thank you very much! :-)
You know, we all desire to get a good ranking with Google, right? Well, here's one search scenario where I'm really proud to get so high up... ;-)
PS. Only reason I found out was going through the stats and actually saw a visitor finding my web site through that... DS.
I don't know how many of you who can actually do this, but for fun, I've kept the first web site I ever built online, and now I want to share it with you!
It was made in 1998 and it consists of general information about Australia, after I spent two months there. I called it Ozpage , and it was my first attempts at HTML, CSS, Photoshop and Flash. I'm still pretty happy about that map image, though. :-)
On the other hand, this Flash movie (direct link to SWF movie) is fantastic!
So, enjoy! Really! :-D
