As usual, the new year’s day is the traditional day for a retrospective over the year that just passed.

Quite a few things, and very much on the positive side:

  • Started in Hesari as a game critic (and got two reviews published).
  • Endured variable finnish/german territorial pissings at work.
  • Gave an hour-long presentation in the annual Red Hat Summit in San Diego.
  • Guns n’ Roses Chinese Democracy wasn’t released.
  • Was assimilated into facebook, like so many others
  • Wrote 720 entries into this very blog (and failed to resurrect fishblog, once again).
  • Got a new mac, and have been happy with it.
  • Didn’t write a single line of production code, and very little therapy code.
  • Visited two new countries: Belgium and Mexico.
  • Took far too few photographs, but managed to enter photo thursday almost every week the challenge was run.
  • Sports-wise the biggest news was Teemu Selänne finally getting the cup in the summer (and then going AWOL from Ducks).
  • Visited the annual Utah European Alumni Meeting in ‘s-Hertogenbosch
  • Moleskine use decreased considerably, though at work the black notebooks get a lot more mileage.
  • Got inspired by the arrival of many new interesting software platforms, but apart from a tiny widget, didn’t really get to work on any of them.
  • Endured the loss of three regularly read newspapers/magazines: Presso, Business2.0 and Taloussanomat.
  • Read a lot of books, some of them for many months. Parallelism is the key.
  • Saw Rush for the first time.
  • Attended Tuska for the first time. Skipped the bargain-priced Black Crusade on account of a busy week.
  • Got really lazy geo-caching. Only two finds in Netherlands, zero in Belgium and Mexico. Still a few unclaimed ones.
  • Failed to see Bengtskär for the nth year in a row, but got closer than ever before.
  • Found no slovenian euro coins.
  • Was quite impressed by the size and speed of hummingbirds.
  • Started using librarything.

Not linked, the archives are functional, and locating the corresponding entries is left as an exercise to the reader.
