Ah winter, cant beat it.

As I was born in Telemark,
it must be in my blood,
but I love winter time.

However I hate the slushy gray period before. Unfortunetly living in England, there is no proper winter, just 5 months of gray autumn. :(

And I dont like people complaining of it being too cold. It never is, just bad clothing. As they say, if it gets colder, add another layer of clothing. But if it gets warmer there is a finite layers you can take off....

Breezed up

Finally got round to upgrade to Ubuntu's latest version, Breezy Badger (5.10).

Received my CDs from ubuntu/canonical ShipIt service, so that made the upgrades easier, even though I had downloaded the Iso.

First impression is not much has changed, which is good as Hoary was good before. Starting to notice nice little tweaks, like lineakd now looks integrated, sony laptop buttons works better, nicer boot up splash screen, etc.

So I got no excuse not to update my postfix howto now...

Data missuse

Found while searching google on my name, that apperently I like "3D Golden Warrior"! Never heard of nor played the game, nor can I imagine that I ever will.

I have however downloaded Sensible Soccer, so looks like they missuse their customer data. So basically dont trust! (Though it was I used)

BELAY THAT ORDER! I have spoken to the site and it is all a simple mistake. Basically my user id was an old one and so got two accounts interlinked. Simple db error. Ive made the same mistake several times myself, when the genrator gets reset or dbs merge... So they are not so bad after all


Started the 4th edition of my howto on setting up a postfix mail server in linux.

Ubuntu, the distro it is based upon has released a new version, so the howto needs updating. Also integrating postgrey, an excellent spam reduction method. And try to include some fixes and tweaks from last time.

Also started to encourage people to use the ubuntu forums, instead of contacting me regarding the howto, as I have weeks of unreplied messages to look at....

Found this page on, nice to get praised some times!

Wish List

Finally made some progress with my much delayed wishlist project. Convinced a previous owner of to hand the project over as he was not pursuing it.

I have started to set up the file structure, and will soon start to plan the logic and objects needed.

Will then advertise for help with the development. Later on, the project will definetly need some designer help, otherwise if it is too ugly; no-one will use it.

Have a look and see what you think :

Love my new phone, the sony ericsson k600i. Camera is a beauty, not 2MP of the 750 and 800s, but 1.3 which is nearly as good. Crisp and clear. My old Treo 600 camera is ancient compared to it.

Just come back from holiday in Ibiza and used the camera on my phone more than my 5MP pentax proper camera.

Thank god I only know a few other people with 3G phones otherwise I'd waste too much money on video calls!

Only downside is that it does not have a full qwerty keyboard ala the Treo. But it cant have everything.

And most importantly action my own pvr.
As I dont expect people to read this,
I am going to use this as note pad for my own thoughts.

Which will mostly be about my projects, so my appologies if some dont make sense or some offend you.
May be awhile since my last post.
