I've developed an addiction to the "TrackPoint" mouse, the little nibble in the middle of the keyboard that everybody hates. The problem is, once you get accustomed to using one, nothing beats it. So now you've a shortage of keyboards to choose from, nevermind laptops!
Anyway, when moving some old servers up to the electronics recycling room, a colleague and I did a bit of dumpster diving, and wham, I struck gold! A full size Thinkpad keyboard! Dirty and hideous, but functioning. With a bit of soap and scrubbing, it was as good as new.
.. in which the weather's wet, the bike's on its side, and there's a rock in the road. The plan was to go from Lysebotn to Sauda (C to H in the map), or something thereabout. Not very far as the crow flies, but the fjords and mountains mean you've got to take your time to get there.
Last Tuesday, I took the bus to the south coast to get my motorbike out of, uh, winter storage. Yeah, I know it's high summer, but I've been busy! Normally the ride back to Oslo is 3-4 hours, but I decided to take some detours, and here are some photos from the trip.
Inspired by griffin's Vegas photos, so I'm sharing a couple from Prague two weeks ago. The kinds of places you go for many of the same reasons, I'd say! Went there for a bachelor party. No particularly interesting photos I'm afraid, but damn there's too much Brexit on the front page!
I was lucky and got sent to Australia for a few weeks of work just before Christmas. From freezing Oslo to 35C Perth After the work was done, I explored the south-west coast for 12 days. Didn't bring a camera, but here are a some photos from the phone at least, and a stern warning not to buy LG Optimus 4 for its camera qualities.
Last weekend we had our annual "expedition" with work. The previous years' expeditions have been quite relaxed, but this year we did the "Rallarvegen" bicycle route. Not a relaxing weekend by any means, especially if you're an office bound code monkey for the rest of the year, let me tell you.
