“You should be glad we agreed on the price up front!”.
That’s what the guy at the bike shop told me when I was picking up my bike this afternoon. Turned out it wasn’t a half hour job after all, he’d used quite a few hours to fix my handlebar held bearing. The thing was totally busted, but now it’s finally fixed and for the first time in months I can ride my bike without having the constant fear of dying. I even fixed my breaks – I did that myself of course, being the pro bike mechanic that I am – and took my bike to Sognsvann after work. It went better today than the last time, probably because it wasn’t as hot as it was when I was up there on Monday. Or Tuesday. Or whatever. Maybe I’ll buy myself a helmet. My head is starting to fill with a lot of information now, and I should do my best to keep it that way.
I’m currently working on a rather interesting project at NRK. I’m not sure if I should tell you anything about it, because the idea is pretty good and someone might just steal it before we launch the product. Personally, I wouldn’t use it, but the people in the testing group is rather excited about it, and if I’m able to keep it running flawlessly, it’ll be a very good coding experience for me. Right now the code looks like a mess, but it’s working and entered testing a couple of days ahead of schedule – and if it’s not broken, let’s not fix it. I’ll clean up the code for v2.
My mood is on a rising curve these days. I think I know why. And I might even tell you about it some day.
