Was working at home yesterday, before lunch the clouds where a bit strange looking.

Summarize disk usage of all files of a given type

August 28th, 2012

Needed to know how much disk space all *.ear-files was consuming in a directory on one of our Linux-servers


find . -type f -name "*.ear" -exec ls -l {} \; | awk '{print $5}' > sum.txt
awk '{ sum += $1 } END { print sum }' sum.txt

Then I used Google to make the number human readable,

Oh joy!!

My brother-in-law has good taste, and they all where brought to me this evening! Good for cold and dark autumn evenings. Rökporter was requested, Nils Oscars Indian Pale ale I have also tasted before (good one!), the rest of them are new to me, looking forward to get to know them.

Backhoe loader - starting after 5 years of no activity

August 26th, 2012

Me and my father in-law trying to start up the backhoe loader which has not been started in five years. Needed start help from one of the other tractors, as soon as the jumper cables where correctly mounted it started immediately. Simplicity in engineering is genius in times like this.

Tidying up branches.

Nybakkrunden 2012

August 26th, 2012

Last weekend I participated in Nybakkrunden, a small local competition at Mangenskogen close to Aurskog. 35 kilometer, mostly gravel roads, only 2 kilometers with forest road. Not technically difficult, but perfect for those who are preparing for Birkebeinerrittet the week after.

I ended up as #54, a bit faster than my goal which was 1:15. Here standing together with Torbjørn who won the whole race, spending around 11 minutes less than me (!).

Maybe check the dictionary next time?

Perpetuum mobile

August 17th, 2012

Got this picture from my old colleague at Bertel O. Steen, Geir. It is my old bike, the famous Tricky Track made by DBS which I bought in 1994. At some point I decided that it was crap, but the handy man Geir was more than happy to use it, and still is, now 18 years after commuting to work.

August 8th, 2012

Whow, does not see this often - Facebook unavailable. But ok, a simple refresh and I was immediately passed on to another server (I guess), and everything works as expected.
