Bondegatan, here I come

It's a deal! I just bought an apartment in Stockholm. And that's no small feat if you ask me. An immense 35 square meter one bedroom apartment in a building from the 1880:s. 3.30 meter ceiling height. Here's some pictures from the real estate agents prospect.

I'm going try to move in middle of July, then it's back home for my birthday and some vacation. I'm also hoping to get the opportunity to go to Siggraph in August.

OpenGL on OS X

I've been doing some past time OpenGL programming on my MacBook. The nVidia 9400M it's equipped with has maybe not best performance but a fair number of capabilities. One of the biggest problems I've encountered was an subtle but critical behavior in the OS X OpenGL implementation. On OS X the OpenGL stack is not initialized correctly before the application window has been created, causing all calls to OpenGL functions cause EXC_BAD_ACCESS exception.

Blueprint

I'll have to write something about Blueprint. It's a CSS framework which gives you a complete grid layout for free. I'm using it for a site I'm working on right now and it's looking great. The usefulness of such a framework is pretty obvious, but I'll tell you why it's a big deal anyway. You don't have to invent the wheel again, thus saving a lot of development time. It's flexible, so if you decide to change the layout in a later stage your whole design doesn't fall apart.

Emacs

I've started using Emacs again. I first got into Emacs at Digital Domain where it was the tool of choice for many of the coders. After I left though I've become complacent (and stuck) and settled with other editors. At work there is of course Visual Studio, which is fine and a complete IDE.

However, yesterday I downloaded Emacs for Windows after I stumbled over a video explaining org-mode and thought it would be good thing to use both for keeping notes at work, and for other projects that I keep on the side.

Sub-prime tour 08

I recently came back from a 2 week long well deserved vacation in the east coast of USA. The trip started with four days in New York were we stayed at the Roosevelt Hotel near Time Square and Union Station. NY was really really cold, but we still managed to see most of lower Manhattan as well as large parts of Brooklyn, although we completely missed the fabled trendy parts and only found different ethnic parts in various states of decay. Still we had a really good time, good food and visited some awesome places! Hit the jump for more pictures and text.
