Bar and PSI

April 10th, 2017

At the gas station, needed to check the tyre pressure. New fancy digital way of setting the correct pressure, measured in PSI. The table on the side listing car brands and tyre pressure...measured in BAR. Good thing Google can tell me "how many bars in one psi..."

The last bun

It was the last bun, never mind the look, tasted good!

Spinning to Danko Jones "Wild Cat"

March 30th, 2017

Earlier today spinning to Danko Jones "Wild Cat". Just perfect while training, but do not believe I will play it several times - if listening til Danko I will be playing the old stuff.

Garden tending at my in-laws

The pine tree had grown to large and now it was time to cut it down.

My latest book "The DevOps Handbook"

March 27th, 2017

This book is work related "The DevOps Handbook - How to create world-class agility, realiability & security in technolocy organizations". Provides a broad overview of important DevOps principles and for the first time I do believe that I really have understood what DevOps really means. From the conclusion wrapping up the book I qoute

DevOps requires potentially new cultural and management norms and changes in our technical practives and architecture. This requires a coalition that spans business leadership, product management, development, QA, IT operations, Information security and event marketing where many technology initiatives originate".

If working with anything IT related to operations, security or development I would recommend reading this book.

At the library

March 15th, 2017

Hanging out at Fet Folkebibliotek, the library, while waiting for the bus. Been to the dentist, "0 hull"!

Long and hard workout

March 8th, 2017

This morning, a long and hard workout, at least according to my Tacx-app, only 17watt, but 30.352 rpm and 251.041782,8 (!!) km/h, and then not even mentioning the distance - amazing.

Last weekend at Rena

March 2nd, 2017

Spent the last weekend at Rena, invited to stay at the cabin (or maybe lodge is more appropriate?) to our friends Hanne and Thomas. Woke up Saturday morning to this view, no need to complain or wait to get out to ski

And Sunday morning, powder alert! And I still got it...while the other ones go straight I do my telemark turns

And the kids really had a good time as well.

Spinning to Johnossi "Blood Jungle"

March 2nd, 2017

What to do when I fall asleep together with #3 at 19:00 and Elin wakes me up at 22:30 telling me that I still sleep and needs to prepare for bed (after having tried to wake me up twice). Well, I got up and headed down in the basement to do what I had planned this evening anyhow, some alone quality time on the spinning bike. Listened to the latest album by Johnossi "Blood Jungle". Good one, served the purpose and I might even listen to it several times while working out (did also listen to the album at work today).

Weather pictures - WTF?

February 22nd, 2017

Woke up this morning and was totally taken by surprise. What is this white stuff on the ground? Just yesterday I said to myself that I won't need the chains on the tractor anymore, but since I did not have the time I did not unmount them. Not that I would need them today if I where to clear away the snow since it is most likely starting to rain later today. Actually I would want an old agricultural roller, the single ones, not the wide with 3 rollers like I have to "flatten" the snow instead of showeling it away - along with thousands of small stones out on the lawn.
