Lucky thing that we do not have any forests to burn as the media could without a doubt cook one up.
A useful Spam - strange things happen but among the dozens of magic-pill mails today was an ad for Audible.com - had forgot about them but they will get some of my dollars, first on the list will be a dose of "News from lake Wobegone" :)
Urban public radio at it's best.
Ads Ape Apple's Air Guitarists. Upstart BuyMusic.com is doing more than just offering a music service that mimics iTunes. Its commercials are strikingly similar to Apple's ads, too. Flattery? Perhaps, but it also could be a lawsuit in the making. By Danit Lidor. [Wired News]
iTunes musicstore - great idea and BuyMusic will not be the last to jump on the bandvagon. The future is right here to be.

Reykjavik Harbor - May 2003
Bloggtools: as my Radio Userland registration expired it coincided with some ftp problems - I thought for a a while that I could not use Radio and so I strarted looking for another blogging tool.
The closest I came to finding a tool I could use was iBlog which sports a good interface with a logical design. It has potential but is still in the early stages and has serious drawbacks such as limited ftp support and somewhat strange html and link naming and generation.
The local state news station appeared on the screen at 00:20GMT, the staff unusually polished in their "War Live" gear - ceremonies and oufits usually only reserved for elections.
Sad business but if there is a slight chance that the live eyes on the war can save some civilian lives, please do.
While Apple is busy developing and rolling out new applications, developer support and core development such as additional apple made standard frameworks do not seem to be high on their agenda.
Apple has released Java 1.4.1 for OS X - finally catching up :)
Fortunaetly for the hopefully very few like-minded around their agenda is simple: "We do not like people from other cultures moving to Iceland - they are not like us, they scare us, take away our jobs and steal our property."
The only thing they have going for them is that the more they speak the less likely they become to gather any following.
We really wonder: would Lee Bowyer be eligble to run for them?
Rent a scope - innovative idea.
- Philippe Sanderos, supposedly a wonderkid that just joined the Gunners
Some liverpool web described him so when they thought he was heading their way.
According to the same report, scouts from the following clubs were at his latest game: Manchester United, Liverpool, Roma, Verona, Parma, Modena, Feyenoord, Lens, Lille, Auxerre, Real Madrid and Bayern München! Arsenal and Barcelona

One sniff at the US economy suggests that #1 could find more pressing matters to attend to than a nutcase dictator in the middle-east. Then on the other hand, if the same enthusiasism, effort and determination was applied to the Israel-Palestine issue with genuine pressure applied to both parties the situation in the areas could be improved.
Like many times before the idea was crystal clear after about a one hour bike ride and an email from a fella that needed somthing of this kind, this is 5 weeks later(minus another smaller product developed and some updates to other products). Pretty much on schedule and resisted the urge to beta release it 2 weeks ago - which is quite an achievement.
During my Iowa years I did not have much appreciation for Baseball, it takes a bit of exposure to really appreciate the game(I still have doubts about how good a game it is for kids though, standing forever in the outfield with remote chance of anyone hitting the ball your way is a waste of time for 10 year olds). Due to excellent coverage on Channel 5 from the UK(and the fact that I stay up late and at that time it was the most interesting thing on the telly) I slowly began to take to the game. 2001 World Series was amazing, the current slugfest is not. has a good piece on the game
Microsoft gears up to create more ties with Mac users. Office and Mac OS X only the first of planned links [InfoWorld: Top News]
Who.is and the bubble links are not the only ones gone, this is the company I worked for until resigning recently(it still employs a CEO, hired when all the staff had left - busy man I guess!), here is the UK branch of the same company and this here is the outsourcing office from the same company. Ah, yes, it is an IT company offering among other things expertise in hosting and website maintenance!
Highly recommended for any photography enthusiasist is the excellent PhotographyReview site.
The days are getting short up here in Iceland and there are places I miss.
|At times reality can be more bizzare than fiction, This one definetly beats all but the strangest in the fiction department Well meaning lads though.|
|Arsenal play their worst game for over a year but snatch a point courtsey of French brilliance|
Got the first step of long overdue changes to the homepage done, layers, dhtml, ssi and stylesheets now all in their places. The active site for this blog is here where the blog is stuffed into one of the layers, neat.
Still a bunch of the photos have no place, next step is to organize the galleries.
Apple gets praise, Apple deserves praise this time around :)

With OS X up and running as my main OS for 6 months it is easy to forget those years of Mac use when the (seemingly) eternal list of coming improvements kept growing. Now the Dell box is gathering dust(mostly) and serves as the wifes computer apart from the occasional game of Fifa 2002!
Now we wait for Larry and the Oracles to get moving.
