Recovering slowly from the party we had at eMinds...

It sure was alot of fun, and many people showed up.

Today I have to finish some more test-programs for Handelsbanken, and then I'm going back there tomorrow to show 'em what I got.

But first I have to finish that swedish translation of that I'm working on...


The new assignment I'm working on over at the swedish bank Handelsbanken is really something.

Well, maybe not so much the actual project, but the size of that organization is unbelievable! I guess I'm not supposed to talk to you about it, but take my word for it, they are plenty.

Anyhows. eMinds is having a party for colleagues and clients this friday. Should be fun.

Hey! Know swedish? Go ahead then and visit, 'cau se it was just re-released today by two great friends of mine, Michael "mums" Lokner and Christian "kribb" Wilsson. Make them rich now. :)

No time left for Roomba, maybe later. I've asked my brother Oskar to join me developing it, so that might speed things up a bit.

Gotta go, have a lot of stuff to finish up for Handelsbanken, and also I have to cut my hair, and get nicely dressed and stuff, 'cause today is valentines day, and Ida and I are going out to eat at Sjögräs, and I need to look proper. :)

Have a great one!

So, we have moved! Me and Ida moved a little closer to Medborgarplatsen in Stockholm, just 25 meters away now! :)

We have had around 15-20 degrees celsius here the last few days... And I'm not talking on the plus side... Ooohhh, really cold weather to go moving in...

Roomba is on the move, with a few sections semi-working, such as customerlist, room administration, and the booking section is just starting out. We can view bookings, but not add/edit/delete yet.

I also got a new assignment at work. I'm going to help Handelsbanken (major swedish bank) with their next- generation banking system. I will start this week with workshops to decide upon what technology to use for the frontend, which is the part I'm helping out with.

My brother Åke has moved in to my and Ida's old apartement, he will probably repaint next weekend, much as I'm taking a break from doing to write this.

Well, gotta get back to 'work'... I'm working in the bedroom now, hope to have it done in time for tonight, then I hope to have time to repaint the kitchen this week also. Wish me luck! :)

Well, I was finally able to setup my first project in CVS. Feels nice. :)

Now, all I need is time to code the thing, and then all should be well!

I realized that the old code I had, wasn't hardly worth the electrons it wasted on my drive, so I will rewrite from scratch, once again. Ah, the joy of learning!

Gotta go back now, and I also have to take care of Ida, who is not feeling good at all today...

See you later!

Back with the living again.

I'm a bit frustrated right now. Can't get my account at SourceForge to work, and I really want to get started using their service to develop Roomba. Just can't log in via SSH. Anybody reading this has any clues, please let me know. pal at eminds dot se is the adress I use.

Oh well. If I can't get it to work now, that's probably a good sign that I shouldn't get dependant upon their service...

I don't have the patience, right now to hyperlink this for you right now. Maybe later.
