It’s been quiet here for so long… When I look back at the posts, the fact that just the first page covers as much as 7 years is truly… humbling.

I was thinking about writing a post about the events of the past 7 years, but seriously who really wants to read about that? :) Better to look ahead.

I’ve just built a new gaming rig for the family, my first PC build in over 8 years. This woke again in me the desire to code more, and I’ve been dipping my toes back in .net over the past month or so. With that, I’ve decided to get serious (within hobby limits) about building out a tool to help S monitor her sickness and flares. Who knows, maybe it will turn into something I can release to a wider audience in the future…

For now, that’s it.

I’ve been trying all the tricks (and old passwords I can think of) to gain access to my original gmail account, but nothing seems to work. If you know of any method (even if there’s a cost) please share. Would love to recover some old memories and files…

I have no access to the recovery email.

I am seriously considering getting one of those for my next desktop machine. Apart from being very convenient and cheap, they also seem to solve many of the contained heat problems associated with ordinary towers in the mid price range. … Ok all excuses aside, they just look really really cool. And they are really really cheap. That’s good enough. The only thing that worries me is the potential noise and dust that might gather on the components. This is a workspace though and a handy can of compressed air should at least take care of the dust. Noise however could be a more serious problem. I am planning a SLI GTX295 solution so there might be considerable levels of it…

Well, it took 11 years longer than expected, and I finally did it in Japanese instead of Swedish, but Wednesday this week, after about 6 months of studying and practicing, I passed the Japanese Drivers License Exam. :) Yey!!

The hardest part was def. the language, and the fact that traffic and traffic rules here are rather different from Sweden. For starters Japanes drive on the left side of the road… :)

But ‘Skam den som ger sig’ as the good ol’ swedish chap will tell you, I passed and I can now finally drive our egg-shaped Ipod-car :)))

Yatta!
