Sensible Socer theme anyone?

All right, I’ve not been able to post for a couple of days, mainly because I’ve been too far from a computer connected to the Internet. I spent Thursday and Friday at the JavaZone conference, listening to semi-interesting talks about Java - naturally. I think it was a little too much like being back at school, which probably automatically triggered something in my system that released I’m-a-tad-bored-now-hormones.

Of course, I could’ve posted from home, if I’ve had an Internet connection there. Do I? No. Was I supposed to get one almost two weeks ago? Yes. As always when I order something, things get messed up and the delivery of whatever I order is delayed a couple of weeks. It happened when I bought my Dell laptop and it happened this time. So now, for reasons no one really can explain, the installation contractor isn’t coming until the 29th this month. Yay.




But how boring isn’t that?

Another reason for the lack of entries is my more or less spontaneously trip to Bergen to visit Marte this weekend. It sure was a nice trip, the only problem was that it was over way to fast and I was suddenly back at the office struggling with Tomcat tuning. I also bought a shirt that made me look dead sexy and really, really handsome. Thank you, H&M - no prize if you’re able to find the ironic tone in that sentence - (the H&M site sucks, it complains if you’re not using IE. Almost like me, the only difference is that I complain if you are using the pathetic piece of junk Microsoft once decided to call a browser).

Sometimes comments are submitted to really old entries, like the comment that was submitted to Entry #326: Hail the Coca-Cola Company. a couple of days ago. Can any of you help this guy? He even left his e-mail address, right there for the SPAM-bots to find. Good boy.
