There be gold in them there hills

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.

Dream house II

Hello, my name is Edorph, and I'm an addict. I obsessively browse country side real estate ads while my noisy city apartment chips away at my sanity.

3 hour ride, 3 day detour, part 2 (N56k)

.. 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.

3 hour ride, 3 day detour (N56k)

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.

Enough with the politics, Czech out some photos instead (N56k)

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!

Trains and fjords (N56k)

Bored, so I'm sharing some more photos. Back in February, a colleague from Australia came to work in Oslo for a few weeks. Oslo is pretty dull in the late winter, so we took the train across the mountain to Bergen and ferried around a bit in the fjords.

Every year, us nerds at work do a 'hackathon' at an old solar observatory. It's a pretty interesting place! Here are a few photos from this year.

Strolling about..

Yesterday was a fantastic day, icy cold, but clear and calm, so I went for a walk in Holmekollen, a hill to the north west of the city centre.

Some photos from today

I have some work on the west coast of the country this week, so what better way to get there than an autumn motorcycle ride?

A change of seasons N56k

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.
