In the nick of time!

I just got a brand new Nokia 6230i mobile phone. This is a replacement for my Sony Ericsson T610 which I had replaced twice in the last 2 months. The funny thing is that I got it on the very last day of my 2 year guarantee. I now have another 2 year guarantee and ...

I’m Feeling So Dapper!

I just got finished installing Ubuntu 6.04 (Dapper Drake). It’s becoming ever-more polished although it is a beta and there are quite a few things that just don’t work yet. I really like the cleaned up menu layout. The search function in Nautilus is also nice. I’ve been having problems with quite a few Mono ...

Been a while

I just updated to wordpress 2.0 and I thought I might write a post since I’m here anyway, it’s been quit a while since the last post and lots has happened since I last wrote. First of all I’m back in Berlin for the time being. I’ll probably stay in Berlin till the World Cup ...

I had a job, I quit a job.

So, it’s been a while since I last posted something. Here goes… For a couple weeks I was working for the censor-ware company, Websense, Inc. The work was monotonous but I expected that. Basically, I catagorized web sites which I thought I was going to find a bit morally objectionable. Turns out however that what ...

Laptop Repairs

Well, I’m going to have to send my laptop into IBM again. The last time they fixed the “Fan Error” problem but I didn’t send the harddrive with it. It turns out however that the hard drive is also damaged. I get random disk errors and it hangs for minutes at times. This means Ubuntu ...

Shaved it off

Well, I finally did it. I shaved my lovely beard. I took fotos of before, … … with transitional moustache … … and after. Oh yeah, here are the leftovers. It’s funny how you’re surprised the first few days when you look into the mirror.

Ubuntu Laptop Testing 1

I’ve kinda officially joined the Ubuntu Laptop Testing Team today. I’ll be testing my IBM Thinkpad T43, Model# 266875U. I haven’t got tons of time for it but another guy has a Canonical-supplied T43 that is about 90% the same hardware so I’ll just copy his stuff where appropriate. If you’d like to help just ...

Getting settled

Well, slowly I’m getting settled in San Diego. I’ve got a temporary driver’s license, an ADSL connection, a bank account and a job interview lined up for Tuesday. The driver’s license is only temporary because I still have to do the motorcycle test once my Vespa arrives in 2 weeks. The bus system’s pricing structure ...

In San Diego

Last I wrote I was in Baltimore. After I left there I went to visit mommy and the bros. And last Tuesday I finally made it to San Diego. Man the weather is nice out here. Just go check out the san diego weather. I’ve only been in the water once so far because I’ve ...

Long Jump for Dogs

ESPN2 is showing dog jumping. The dog handler stands at the end of a dock, calls the dog, the dog runs, the handler throws a fish-shaped object, the dog jumps as far as he can and the judges measure the jump. The really weird thing is hearing the commentators discussing the jumps….and the fact that ...
