A minor update

It's certainly been a while since I last wrote something. Things has been happening in a furious pace the last few weeks (or months!).

At my dear friends Micke and Annas wedding, me and Hanna had the honorable task of toastmastering the wedding party. Most things went as planned and I hope that mr and mrs Ljung is pleased with how it turned out. I know I am.

Thursday morning

It's Thursday 3 am and I'm listening to my Ipod in the kitchen. Why am I not sleeping you ask? My moron of a neighbor has decided to play Rammstein and I swear, his stereo goes to 11.

In typical Swedish fashion I won't go up there and tell him to shut up. A few people already tried that. If you play that loud at that particular hour you're either really stupid or out to mess with people. And I don't want to have a discussion with someone of the latter mindset.

Adventures in Gutsy

I just invested in yet another toy gadget. This time a HTPC built from scratch. It's a Core 2 Duo with a Asus mobo (P5K-VM) with an integrated 965 graphics chipset from Intel. I bought a Antec chassi, with 2 80mm fans, resulting in a super-quiet box. I could honestly sleep next to it.

Mercedez-Benz Bus Profi

This was a web project I did with my friend Mattias Stridsman. It was flash based web game for Mercedez-Benz bus division in Germany. We did this job with Chris Hildenbrand heading up as producer and design by a group of students in Germany.

The concept was a set of mini-games, one unlocked every week. The aim was to encourage young people to get a bus driving license. For the best player there was a grand price of a paid trip to the soccer world cup for all his/her friends. The project ran for 3 months.

Vacation!

Friday was the last day at work before my 3 week vacation, but as it stands now I probably need to come in Monday as well to wrap some things up. No biggie. I'm planning on staying in town next week. Playing with my new toy, the PS3.

PS3 - Check!

I've just bought a PS3 through Webhallen, but made the mistake of assuming that when all the items are in store it's just a matter of picking them up at their store at Sveavägen. Apparently reserving the stuff I wanted is really complicated so I have to wait to Monday (as they're not open on Sundays). Poor me...

Spiral of expenses

I got my new LCD TV yesterday. I quickly realized that ordinary TV broadcasts doesn't present itself very well on 40 inch of HD goodness. My hunch is that this investment will inevitably lead to other pricey investments. Next in line is a PS3 I think. Even with the company subsidizing of a next-gen console of choice it expensive. But at least I get some free (EA) games from work.

Sara has got a bun in the oven

It's finally official news! My bestest of friends Mattias and Sara is having a bebeh! She posted a ultrasound picture of the little critter and you can clearly see the resemblance to Mattias :-)

Finally I can talk to people about this. I was sworn into secrecy when I first got the news on MSN at work. Also I've been invited to Saras parents place near Katrineholm for Midsummer. I can't wait, it's gonna be awesome!
