Someone working late?

October 30th, 2011

Snaphost of Aftenposten sometime tonight. Someone working late being a bit to creative?

My latest book: Anthony Beevor D-Day

October 28th, 2011

WW2, and since I have already read Stalingrad and Berlin, D-Day written by Anthony Beevor is a must.

One liner: Adding files to svn

October 28th, 2011

List all files needed to be commited into Subversion, then grep only files not added, this being lines starting with question mark. The '^\?' means

  • ^ = line start
  • \ = escape next charater
  • ? = The character to search for, since ? is a metacharater in Regex, it must be escaped.

Then using awk print the file path and name and at last using xargs and svn add - add the files to svn.

Code

svn status | grep ^\? | awk '{print $2}' | xargs svn add

Finally I bother to do it...WEP to WPA

October 25th, 2011

I have known it for a long time, I should have done it a long time ago, but still, needed to see http://www.nrk.no/programmer/tv/brennpunkt/1.7848190 (Nettverk i offentlige miljøer er lette å hacke) before actually changing from WEP to WPA2...

Using WEP really is nothing more than a keylock made of plastic.

IBM WebSphere Technical Conference 2011 in Berlin

October 15th, 2011

I've spent a few days in Berlin attending the IBM WebSphere Technical Conference. While walking down the streets I saw this poster of Petterson and Findus which I first thought was written by a Norwegian, but it turns out to be Swedish.

Staying at a hotel close to the Deutsche Oper Berlin, off course they had to have pictures like this on the wall in the rooms. No idea what so ever which opera this is from...

Tuesday, dinner at the Fernsehturm, nice view and pretty good food as well.

Me at the conference on Wednesday preparing for the session me and Geir would have talking about Telenor and Rational Automation Framework.

Moon above Bismarckstraße.

At the Genazvale restaurant, serving food from Georgia. Me just about to try out the kebab, served on this giant spear totally hiding Geir. If ever going to Berlin, I would recommend a visit to this place.

Kindzmarauli, sweet wine from Georgia.

Giant colored balls at Ernst Reuter Platz

Pictures from Røverkollen

October 15th, 2011

Last Sunday the weather forecast said heavy rain, but when I woke up the weather was pretty nice - so I headed out with my bike in a hurry. Have not been to Røverkollen this year, so I had to grab the chance before winter gets here. Pictures taken from the small tower next to the tv tower, view towards Groruddalen

And view towards Nittedal

Heading home I went over Årvollåsen.

Atnaøl - Atna beer

October 15th, 2011

Before heading off to Berlin me and Espen spent an evening playing Grand Turismo, eating Thai takaway and trying out beer from the Atna brewery. Stabburøl and Nakenbad, both pretty ok - might buy it several times, but I won't hunt it down all over town so to speak.

Perl and Regex: Search and replace

October 6th, 2011

I needed a way to search for a long string and if found, replace only a specific part of it. Grouping was the key and Stackoverflow.com the place to go to get answers.

You want strong sir? I don't think so!!

October 6th, 2011

Me and Espen had take away from http://www.gourmetthai.no yesterday. Totally ok food, fun part was when I tried to order the food strong. The woman behind the counter insisted of me wanting "medium minus". A bit back and forth and I said "ok, not strong, but medium pluss". She said ok, and then made the chef prepare it as medium...

And while writing "womand behind the counter" it reminded me of the song by Pearl Jam

And the decision is: Aass

October 1st, 2011

Bought Frydenlund Bayer yesterday, and since I have the weekend alone at home with the boys, what better than to try it and compare it with Aass Bayer after putting the boys to bed?

The decision is

  1. Aass Bayer
  2. Frydenlynd Bayer

But, ok. I drank Frydenlund first, then Aass - must repeat the test some day soon starting with Aass - it is a tough job, but someone got to do it!

But both where perfect while watching Rolling Stones - Ladies and Gentlemen
