Removing a tree stumb

August 25th, 2015

Had to remove an old tree stumb which had turned into an ants home. Spent 20 minutes of digging around it and also used the handsaw to cut some of the roots preparing for the big pull

All ready, the towing rope attached to the tractor

And voila, did actually go much easier than I had thought. Not a big hole either, good one.

Getting to ride a Ducati

Last Tuesday I went together with my friend Kjetil to pick up his new Ducati 851

And I got to ride his Multistrada back home, must admit that I did not hesitate when he asked me for that favor

Being He-Man

August 7th, 2015

Trying to be He-Man, pretending to have the power of the universe. My tractor being Cringer, the fearless battle cat, helping me protect Castle Grayskull (our yard) against the evil forces of Skeletor (old garbage)

Visiting Høgås Fort

August 4th, 2015

Together with Atle and the boys we went to Gan and visited Høgås Batteri today. Very nice and easy accessible, just park by the road and an easy walk for 5 minutes.

View over Øyern

And a lot of blueberries as well

Powershell - Bad numeric constant error

August 1st, 2015

First one up this morning, nothing else to do than enjoying myself with a bit of Powershell-scripting. Got stuck for a while, my script did not run due to the error "Bad numeric constant error". Turned out that I had a variable starting with a number...which apperantly is bad. Removed the number and voila, all fine.
