I hold off for 6 months, but decided to go with the next big thing on the web: Twitter.

There’s a lot to say about the service, from Wikipedia; ‘Twitter is a social networking and micro-blogging service that allows users to send “updates” (text-based posts, up to 140 characters long) via SMS, instant messaging, email, the Twitter website, or an application such as Twitterrific.’

I just subscribed, check out my Twitter page…will add friends in the coming days and then start ‘twittering’…expect more on this soon!

Pivot X2.0 in the works

Thursday, July 5th, 2007

This blog is using the Pivot-engine to maintain the site, mainly coz it’s purely php based and, unlike the popular WordPress weblog tool, it doesn’t require MySQL (handy since that is not available in my current hostingplan).

The Pivot dev-team just posted some screenshots of what version 2.0 will look like (current version is 1.40.3 ‘Dreadwind’)…holy cow, a *lot* of changes on the back-end! Have to admit, it looks mighty good…can’t wait to upgrade! Gotta hold off for some months though, the final is only expected after summer. 🙁

Common guys, push it! 🙂

New car!

Wednesday, July 4th, 2007

We bought a new car today! Obviously I left the company car with the company after quiting my job and the last two weeks in Norway showed that a car is a requirement for the area we’re gonna live in.

Made a good deal with our neighbors, so here it is; the Renault Mégane Scenic!

It has the full options, even a towbar! Not quite a pussy-magnet :), but really happy to have it.

Great value for money and for sure big enough to get stuff moved to the new house in Norway by the end of this month.

Cleaning da house

Tuesday, July 3rd, 2007

These weeks are filled with cleaning up old shit and packing things we’re gonna take to Norway.

You would not believe what I found laying around in the techroom (the attic :))…old network stuff like 10 Base-5 (thick ethernet) cables and terminators, AUI to UTP convertors, etc., etc….guess it’s about time to trash it! 🙂

Butterfly moments

Monday, July 2nd, 2007

Time is relative; an hour, a day, a year…all just one moment in time. Some moments make us go back in time, passing the thin line of human invented time boundaries.

Today is one of those days…a true butterfly moment, here for a reason…the people who should, know the meaning.

Marilyn Manson: "Times have not become more violent. They have just become more televised."

Goals achieved

Sunday, July 1st, 2007

Was able to get the most important things arranged while being in Oslo the last two weeks; I started the norwegian registration process and obtained a tax-number. The lather is needed to open a bankaccount…just a minor detail, still important since I want to give my employer the opportunity to pay my salary, yeah…I’m a nice guy! 🙂

Next challenge is to work my way through the Internetbanking in the norwegian language…guess I’ll need a dictionary!
