Talk to me

Nokia 6230 I’m still watching the Garden State trailer, and I’m bit worried that the movie will be a huge disappointment.

It’s wage talking time in Norway these days. About a month ago the guys driving trucks from the warehouses to the local stores went on strike, a thing that has naturally resulted in somewhat lousy grocery assortment. This means that you need a little imagination when you’re shopping ingredients for your dinner. Unfortunately, imagination is not something I’ve got much of at the moment. So I end up eating really boring food. Like tacos with meat and nothing else. A couple of weeks ago most journalists also went on strike and today they were joined by the brewery workers. This means that there will soon be nothing to eat, nothing to read and we can’t even get loaded to forget all about it.

I’ve now got an account with Segment Publishing, but I’m struggling a bit with my current host to get the information I need to change the DNS entries. Their support is about to go from “bad” to “sucks” - I’ve been waiting for the info for almost two days now.

Yesterday I got the first reward for working my ass off: A brand new Nokia 6230 cell phone. Nokia have had a lot of bad ideas in the past, like the 3650 and the N-Gage, but the 6230 is a real beauty.

Among the main features you find an MP3/AAC player, a stereo FM radio, a VGA camera, video recording, Bluetooth, IR, EDGE, MMC support and you can even make phone calls with it! As soon as I get the 256MB MMC card I ordered and I find a way to connect some quality headphones to it, it’ll replace my trusty JOS MP-110. Transferring files to and from the phone works like a charm, and the camera isn’t half bad. Compared to my previous cam phone, the Qtek 8080, it’s actually quite good. Maybe it’s about time to get the Mobog up and running again.
