Found this Subaru at home here the other day, the thing right now seems to be switching tyres on all cars to "see if they go racerfast..."

Santa Claus is coming to town

February 23rd, 2012

Hauk, one of the boats belonging to Port of Oslo out sailing this morning, breaking ice close to the Opera. Did not notice it at once, but then suddenly I saw Santa Claus standing there. Funny...

What a view!

February 23rd, 2012

Got a spinning bike in the basement. Just had to share the view...thank god for the mp3-player with A Perfect Circle, Iron Maiden, Depeche and more, without it I would have gone mad...or at least I would never have spent any time there.


Snow slede mishap

February 19th, 2012

Wanted to show off for my oldest son, so I started on the top - about 10 meters straight down, then turning slightly to the right. Did not happen, to fast and I dived head first into the snow. But at least I got to impress my son.

Took the picture just after spending about a minute to get rid of all the snow in my face and down in my neck.

Harmony at home

February 13th, 2012

Bought a Logitech Harmony 700, dumped all other remotes, now just one. Working as a charm, some minor issues, but does not bother me at all since we now just have one remote.

Car wash not only for cars

February 13th, 2012

When heading home on Friday my conclusion was that my bike desperately needed to be cleaned. So I stopped by the car wash and they helped me out "Both inside and outside?" they asked :-)

Should I start food blogging?

February 9th, 2012

So many food blogs - and Best Food Blogs, maybe I should add a category "Food" as well, looks nice or what?

Error handling in bash scripts done right

Ever wondered how to do proper error handling in bash scripts? Check out - it made my day!

My code is open source

February 4th, 2012

Ages ago I created my own project in Java that enables me to export my entire blog (or parts of it) to PDF. Not very useful for my personal blog off course, but for the two blogs I have created for my kids it is my master plan to sometime have a book created. Who knows, in 50 years if they are able to view the content of the B2Evolution blog, but paper will for sure last that long.

My project is hosted by Google Code, - free for everyone to use with the limitations that the third party libraries have.

Main purpose of publishing it to Google Code is to have a backup of the code, not just store it on my Lenovo T60 laptop which is...7 years old now? Second, it might be that someone out there might have the same need as me, and maybe my effort could save them time.

What ports are open on my system?

February 1st, 2012

Had an issue today trying to figure out which port to use in order to access a test installation of Atlassian JIRA installed by someone else ages ago. The command was simple:

nmap -sS -O
