Boil 'em, mash 'em, stick 'em in a stew..

Potato patches in full bloom! I had small plants and no flowers last year (and just lots of tiny spuds), but this year they're going crazy.

If a tree falls in a forest..

Another 40cm or so came down last night, so I went stomping around in the hills to try out some new poles I found.

Knocking sound from the wall..

I've occasionally been hearing a low knocking sound from a wall, near the mains circuit breaker, and couldn't figure out what it was. Thud-thud... thud-thud-thud... thud... thud-thud. Couldn't see anything outside. I rummaged around in the attic, some rodent nesting in the wall perhaps?

Calm morning

Winter isn't far off now, I almost thought a thin layer of ice had formed during the night yesterday. But it was just an exceptionally calm morning, so I had to take a picture of the lake before going to work.

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.

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.
