Man has created some truly beautiful things, here are my top five. They’re mostly in the technology category, but I’m not that much into art, architecture and such, as you probably can see.
5. Jaguar E-Type
The classic Jaguar, wonderful, easily the prettiest Jag ever.
4. Cray YMP
A supercomputer that actually looks like a supercomputer should!
3. Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione spider
Yes, Italy also make pretty cars.
The most ground-breaking airplane ever made, was also one of the prettiest.
1. Supermarine Spitfire
Oh yes, classic, propeller warfare is what we want! I shall definitely have one when I can afford it.
I found this wonderful site about stuff that white peope like… This could be a very racist site, just trying to pick on white people.. But no, I really do like these things, I do like facebook, St. Patric’s day, T-shirts and microbreweries, and I know someone who’s white and likes the rest of the stuff on the site.. stuffwhitepeoplelike.com is a must-see for every white person out there!

I have a severe problem, I get distracted too easy. A great example is this very morning, I woke up early, I was all by my self. I was supposed to work on a customer’s project, but did I? No, I didn’t… I ended up cleaning the whole kitchen and then went to the store effectively killing all my work-time this morning. I’ll do almost anything to come up with an excuse for not working.. No matter how boring or downright stupid the excuse might be. I mean, cleaning should be less fun than writing code..
I can not force my self to work at home, it is simply impossible. Do you people working at home have any helpful ideas? I don’t have a spare room, so I can’t build an office at home. Do I really have to go to the office to get something done at all? Please, help me!
25 years ago, a man had a dream. This man was Richard Stallman, and his dream was that software should be free, and he’s been fighting for this since. The thought is great, truly great. Software, like information should be free for anyone to use and take part of.
But… it has gone a tad far now, Stallman and his brigade of geeks thinks that _ALL_ software should be free and that it is immoral to use non-free software. This sort of thinking takes me back to a man from Germany, he was also the leader of a group of very determined people, which also was named by an acronym — NSDAP. They also tried to take over the world, and they failed, just like the Free Software Foundation will.
Indeed, FSF have not murdered millions of people, but who knows, soon they might incorporate ‘The final solution’ for those developing code licensed under a non GPL-compatible license. At least, I wouldn’t be surprised, and I’d probably be the first one to go…
Anyways, Happy birthday you fundamental, elitist bastards!

If you like it, I might clean up the code and release it. And, since I’m not a usability expert, please don’t hesitate to tell me if I’ve done something stupid.. And yes, there will most likely be bugs, so tell me about them also.

I got bored one day in the not too distant past and made this new theme for my blog. The reason behind it was not so much to redesign my blog, but rather to learn how to make themes for wordpress (my girlfriend has been hinting about wanting me to write one for her blog).
It has been online for a few days now, I quite like it! what do you guys think of it? (Please, please please don’t be cruel and slay my lack of graphical design skills)
Me and Amelia visited Slackathon ’08 this Saturday, a great event as usual! Many thanks to jj for making it happen! Slackathon is a found raiser for the OpenBSD/OpenSSH team. As you might have seen from my previous posts, I quite like their products.
There was quite a lot of interesting speeches, and to be honest, I missed most of them (thanks a lot free beer )… I’m really frustrated that I missed Kristaps Džonsons’s speech about MULT — Logical resource isolations for BSDs. However, I didn’t miss reyk@’s excellent speech about relayd and how OpenBSD could do L3/L7 load balancing. Some other highlights included thib@’s OpenBSD 4.4 release speech and oga@’s wonderful speech about all the new exciting stuff in X.org.
All in all, it was a fantastic day, lot’s of friends from the net and quite a lot of OpenBSD developers.

We all get showered every day, with more or less useless statistics.. This though, has got to be the best piece of statistics ever. I can not think of a single person that does not have any use for this information
