Exhibit A: OS X 10.7 aka Lion.
Exhibit B: WordPress 3.2 aka Gershwin.
ETA: Probably next week.
Two 25+ degree days = a good start for the holiday.
Five weeks of idleness.
Aging in San Francisco feels odd.
It’s not the first birthday spent out of Finland, but in the days of jetlag-infused stupidity I certainly do not feel any wiser.
Fear Of Missing Out – pleading guilty.
Regular gigs and movies (in theatres, that is) have been semi-disrupted by the move to suburbia.
Last year failed the traditional new year’s resolution on both (once a month, at least on averages).
Hence decided to formalize some activites as year-long therapy projects:
The list is open-ended, and will be extended as time passes – the relevant blog entries will be tagged with a “therapy project 2011″-category retroactively.
Had not one, but two packages from the co.uk instance of Amazon go M.I.A.
One order, two packages, both missing, ten days past the calculated delivery date.
As the finnish postal service provides no tracking service for packages, the only recourse was to turn to the amazon customer care.
Who delivered in spades. At least in theory: my order got forked into a new copy, and the second run is set to arrive at the end of the month.
After two busier than busy weeks, it’s time to resume blogging.
After taking a long walk in the gorgeous winter sunshine first.
Lavonius and the Mothership is a Philadelphia band with a name that leads to an instant mention here…
General retrospective, in no specific order.
Seventies municipal traffic in Helsinki.
One extra weekend, well-deserved.
Went on a rampage in the last few weeks to purchase dvds to tide over a rainy and boring autumn.
Only two of these were full-priced. No prizes for guessing which.
As a non-practicing acrophobic, this free-climbing video of a typical workday is nothing but scary. Compared to this, struggling with SAP and other unco-operative tools is not such a bad deal.
The actual video is now gone from Youtube, but watchable on the io9 site linked above.
The attached image is a Mass Effect 2 cosplay.
The attached image, very appropriate to progress in Super Mario Galaxy depicts what could happen if goombas weren’t just bits.
Cut the stay in chilling Helsinki very short.
An abbreviated 6Pack show at Sir Eino.
Sushi at Masabi.
Cut loose when the number of kids milling around exceeded comfort level.
A week in, this sure feels amazing.
Weather’s played a big part – consistent 30C temperatures mandate a 24 hour siesta.
Igniting the holiday engines by leaving the office in just a few minutes.
One year older, one year wiser.
That’s the theory, still.
