You got to love the net. What ever you search for, you’ll find it. One of the best concert I even attended was the last concert with a Swedish punk band called Grisen Skriker (the pigs are screaming) back in 1979. And guess what, someone took pictures of the event. Naturally I did a vanity search of the pictures, but couldn’t find myself in the pictures. But I did find the lead singer of the band Ebba Grön, one of the ultimate Swedish punk bands. He probably learned a thing or two that night. It took me one hour just to make it from the door into the hall where they where playing. The band eventually took their clothes of, because the air conditioning broke down.
So my wonderful wife gave me a new Powerbook G4 15″. And it’s a a nice machine. A lot of people will probably laugh at me when the new Intel Powerbooks will be available in early 2006, but she could only get hold of one now. And I’m not complaining. I’m currently so poor that dogs compulsory take a piss on my leg.
The screen has the same resolution as the last 17″ screen. So now I have to change the font size in Xcode and NetNewsWire to be able to read. And I keep finding new specs on the machine. I had to go into the audio settings and found that the machine now supports 24-bit 96khz audio. There’s also digital I/O.
It’s a joy to do programming when I have some screen real estate. My old 12″ screen was a bit cramped when using Xcode with all the windows. And I have started to play games again. I have gone through Battlefield 1942 again. But now in high resolution. It’s a great game.
I haven’t updated the blog as often as I should, but I’ve been busy. Looking for a job, programming on my new IAX softphone program. But I’m really going to need a good graphics designer to design the icon and the UI. So if someone feels up for it, send me a mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
Donald Trump, a cheap bastard?
While watching some old stuff I recorded on my Dreambox, I found an old episode of The Tonight Show with Jay Leno; the guest was Donald Trump. Leno is auctioning out a motorcycle for charity. A guest (a blond bimbo who’s name eludes me) sold a kiss to the audience for $500 for charity, which Jay Leno quickly doubled. During which one of wealthiest persons in the US sat silent, doing nothing. His publicist must have torn his hair out. You can’t make yourself look cheaper than that. Being a sleazy bastard is probably one of the many things you need to get that rich, but I rather stay poor than let me become anything like that man.

Have been struggling with mod_rewrite so redirect works with a 301 code. Hopefully I’ll still keep my ranking at google this way without loosing it all.
so if you link to my blog, please update them as soon as possible. Don’t forget to update my RSS links if you use them. Thanks!
I’ve been trying out the program RSyncX for doing backup of mail and web documents from one of my servers. The program can copy between folders on the same machine, or to or from any machine on the net. But I had some problems getting it to work. When using Quck RsyncX Script Generator I got an error, “rsyncx –showtogo unknown option” So I had to to add –rsync-path=/usr/local/bin/rsync to the generated command line to get it to work. I’ll continue trying it out tomorrow, looks like a powerful tool.
