Travis Pastrana does double backflip

Quite simple to update from 1.8.6 to 1.8.7, just neede to copy a few configuration files, and voila - it all worked. Not a major update, just some security issues...

Porn on NRK2

January 25th, 2007

As usual I was sitting with my laptop on my knee while Elin is watching tv, a film called "Pianolærerinnen" or "La Pianiste" http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0254686 There was sexual organs in motion, shocking!! (not really...but it was on national tv...

forget-me-not panties will help protect the women in your life!

January 25th, 2007

These panties will monitor the location of your daughter, wife or girlfriend 24 hours a day, and can even monitor their heart rate and body temperature.
Based on pioneering research developed by the U.S. military at DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency), we have brought this revolutionary technology, previously only available to the military, to you!

Tnx to Morten for bringing this to my attention :-)

I've got mail

January 23rd, 2007

I went to the post office to pick up a parcel today, not sure which book it was, I've ordered two. Anyhow, not interesting, but the packaging was a bit funny. I felt like Santa Claus when I walked out of the post office. Not sure why the packaging was like this, might be due to some customs stuff...

It's snow!!!

January 21st, 2007

Yesterday it started snowing, it's a relief. For almost two weeks now I have been attending a skiers instruction course, just skiing on artificial snow, but now!! Almost got stuck yesterday out on the yard at Vestreng, to much snow, my car acted as a plough.

It's all over - Anne Holt has spoken

January 17th, 2007

There has been a lot of fuss the past few days because of the argue between Gerd-Liv Valla and both Yssen and Reiss-Andersen. But now Anne Holt has raised her voice, and I can't find any arguments for not putting this argue to sleep now, because she knows it all...as always... http://www.vg.no/pub/vgart.hbs?artid=180527 and yes...I'm being ironic...

Universal Declaration of Human Rights

January 16th, 2007

A bit strange I must say, I did a search on Google for "menneskerettigheter", and found ...nothing...just different articles about different issues concerning human rights, but not the actual human rights. But after a while I managed to find them here, but in English http://www.unhchr.ch/udhr/lang/eng.htm

But, ohhh, I should have search for "Menneskerettighetserklæringen" http://no.wikipedia.org/wiki/Menneskerettighetserkl%C3%A6ringen

Pan's Labyrint

January 14th, 2007

Elin and I went to see Pan's Labyrint on Friday. A Spanish/Mexican film based on a story about a little girl living in Spain in 1944 when Franco ruled. It's recommendable, but not for children!

The art of thinking negative

January 11th, 2007

"Kunsten å tenke negativt" was what I tried to translate. Me and Kent went to see it, and had a good laugh. See it yourself http://www.filmweb.no/trailere/article110373.ece

And if Manhattan had the same population density as Alaska, there would have been 25 people living there.

Sigmund Løvåsen - Nyryddinga

January 10th, 2007

Got this book from Elin last christmas. About a boy, ten years old living on a farm and the things he does. In a way, a bit like me when I was ten years old, drawing only tractors and such stuff.

New shoes

January 7th, 2007

I have bought a new pair of telemark boots, a brand new pair of Scarpa T1. My old ones where a least six years old, and when wet a _bit_ smelly, so it was just in time to get a pair of new ones. They where on sale as well, paid just 3000,- NOK, not bad!

The movie of tonight

January 6th, 2007

We spent the evening watching Syriana http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Syriana I think it was a really good movie, really worth seeing. I wish I had some power to do something, but I sorry to admit that I'm just a passenger on a really big train, not being able to get of....

SCJP

January 5th, 2007

I'm now allowed to call myself a Sun Certified Programmer for the Java 2 Platform, Standard Edition 5.0 (CX-310-055) Passed the test with a 68% score. As excepted I had to struggle the most with Collections/Generics and API contents, the part which I should have spent more time memorizing stuff from. But anyhow, I did manage - and that's that :-)

My Skiguard is mounted

January 1st, 2007

My Skiguard is now mounted on my car, did it today, but it felt kinda strange, since it is no snow, not at Vestereng, not here in Oslo, not at Tryvann and not even at Norefjell. You need to go all the way to Hemsedal, a long way...snow, please come.
