I’ve always been interested in reading all kinds of inspirational articles, blog posts and just fun things on the Internet, and most of the time I just tweet about it. But now, both for my sake and yours, I will write a weekly blog post listing the links for the latest week.
Posts in the "Fun" Category
Let’s start this year with an adaptation of the lyrics to Tina Turner’s We Don’t Need Another Hero.
The year is coming to an end, so what better time to take a nice cup of tea and go into nostalgic mode to write up a summary.
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! 🙂
The other day I sort of had an epiphany, a revelation if you will, which made me realize something hard to accept: Internet Explorer will always be there throughout my entire career working with Internet.
At the end of April, on my way home from work, I got caught for speeding.
Last Friday, I was looking forward to go home after a long work week. Alas, I got held at the office all Friday night, due to one little thing: Internet Explorer, once again bugging out (IE 7 in this case).
During this summer, I realized that Apple’s naming of versions seems a tad odd…
Last week I had bought a new game to my Nintendo Wii, and was eager to start it up. I grabbed the Wiimote (Nintento Wii Remote) but it was completely dead.
Sometimes I see such gems in my daily work, I just have to share…
As most of you know, I was in Berlin last weekend, giving a talk at Mozilla Add-Ons Workshop :: Berlin (MAOW Berlin 2009). It was great fun, and I thought I’d tell you more about the event and the trip.
The other week I got one of those calls I’m sure a lot of you get as well.
Tomorrow it’s time for Apple’s last keynote at Macworld Expo, and as usual, lots of rumors and ideas circulate.
The end of 2008 is near, and I felt it was time to summarize the passed year.
The reason why I use Macs is pretty simple:

And, to be honest, I think this epitomizes my view on Vista: it’s something which should never fail, but just did.
Since everyone and his mother is beating down on Internet Explorer, I thought I’d express things from IE’s own perspective:
Sometime, your perception of yourself isn’t a 100% in sync with your childrens’ takes…
The other day I got a letter from the Swedish Tax Authority in regards to taxation of my daughter Emilia.
I now own an iPhone and must reconsider what I wrote in iPhone letdowns.
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. 🙂
I’m back. 🙂
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.
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!
Now there’s a plugin available to get the best features of ASP.NET into Ruby on Rails.
A casual gray Friday like this, I was thinking about the best terms about web developers I’ve heard.
When I read the news this morning, it blew my mind! Microsoft will use the Gecko layout engine for IE 8.
I’ve always liked hair. Beautiful hair makes people look fantastic, and I think more personality is conveyed through hair than we think.
The other night we had a company meeting outlining our new organization.
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… 🙂
I thought I’d share a web developer’s rendition of Working Class Hero.
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.
Swedish weather tracking company SMHI has released the measured hours of sunlight during December for different parts of Sweden.
I thought I’d take the time to publish some short reflections on what has happened lately.
Totally narcissistic, but looking through the pictures from 2007, I found two of my favorites depicting me.
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’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. 🙂
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.
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.
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. 🙂
Yesterday, me and Mr. StenstrÃ¶m took the car to a nearby mall to have some lunch.
Just recently I’ve noticed two phrases that can really come in handy when working with other people.
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.
Today was my fifth day consulting at a customer’s place, where I’m working side by side with Emil, and something unexpected happen.
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 🙂 ).
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.
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!
Well, I guess the title and the image basically says it all… 🙂
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!
