Sunset 11

Click photo to see it a tad larger.

This was on June 30, 2002 at 10.40 pm. And once again, it is taken on Grimsholmen south of Falkenberg. Pretty obvious I spend some time there isn't it? The big dark area in the foreground is the beach, I was holding the camera only a few centimeters above the sand.

On the go...

My brother is blogging too now.

Our hunt for chanterelles this afternoon paid off! Some pork and cream and we have a dinner.

Summer memories

Eftra, Sweden. June 17, 2004.

Sunset 10

Click photo to see it a tad larger.

This sunset was captured on December 31, 2002 at 3.15 pm at a place called Åsa on the west coast of Sweden. It was incredibly cold that day, something like -15 C (that's 5 F for the little group of people on the other side of the Atlantic that still holds on to that system) but as I remember it, it felt even colder than that.

Fibonacci sequence

What's this? A fibonacci sequence on a building? Sure is, but don't ask me why. It's on Magasinsgatan in Göteborg. Maybe the last number is a telephone number, or perhaps some geeky designer have been given free hands to decorate the building. I think it looks very nice anyway.

Sunset 9

Click photo to see it a tad larger.

I forgot to post the sunset last night, so here it is this morning instead. This one, which is very similiar in color to Sunset 6 was actually taken five months earlier, on February 19, 2003 and also in a different direction because the sun sets "earlier" on the horizon then. Also notice it was taken at the exact same spot as Sunset 4, only with a slightly different zoom. I think it's my best "sunset photo spot", maybe because it's facing right out to the sea.

Early sunset

It was an early sunset today (see previous post). I'm going to a birthday party tonight, so I thought I might as well post it now. I'm all alone in the office again, playing Radio Massacre International pretty loud once more. Current track: "I Knew We Were In Trouble When They Taught The Machines To Talk" from the Solid States album. How's that for a song title.

Sunset 6

Click photo to see it a tad larger.

Taken on July 9, 2003 at 11.10 pm, from our bedroom window in Göteborg. I love the way the orange mixes together with the dark blue sky with those distinct dark clouds in the foreground. Also, notice how the top-most, thinner cloud seems to be lit from below.

Get Firefox!

The latest version of Firefox available now. It is in my opinion a much better browser than Internet Explorer or anything else for that matter. It has tabbed browsing amongst other things.

Sunset 5

This sunset was on June 8, 2002 at 9.56 pm. It was photographed at a beach called Lilleby in Göteborg. As I remember it, it was a very nice and warm summer evening.

No relation to Rebecka Liljeberg

I've been getting emails asking if I'm related to the Swedish actress Rebecka Liljeberg. Unfortunately I must say that I'm not related to her as far as I know. I have no way of giving anyone her address or phone number. But she did a nice work in Fucking Åmål.

Sunset 4

Click photo to see it a tad larger.

This amazing sunset was captured March 1st, 2002 at 5.43 pm. It's from the hill in Göteborg, where I live. At the horizon, left of the high chimney, two typical landmarks from Göteborg are just barely visible, the cables of the Älvsborg bridge (Älvsborgsbron) and the Masthugget church (Masthuggskyrkan).

This third sunset was captured on January 6th, 2002 just before 4 pm in Hjuvik in Göteborg. I remember it was a cold day, probably around -10 degrees C.

Radio Massacre International

I'm alone and listening to Radio Massacre International pretty loud in the office today. It's nice when no one else is around.

Sunset 2

Click photo to see it a tad larger.

I continue my series of sunsets with this photo from a little place called Eftra, just south of Falkenberg, Sweden. It was taken on the evening of my wedding day, August 21st, 2004. A perfect ending to a perfect day!

Huh? Say what?

I must be getting old, I was blog-surfing and found a blog named =Muackzxx=[[o.0 esTe3NLuVjie 0.o]]=Muackzxx=. It's probably just me, but I don't understand a word of it, and yet it seems to be written in some shorthand of English.


I'm just about to finish listening to the book 1984, by George Orwell, as an audiobook on my Palm Tungsten T3. It's a scary book, but very good. I wonder why I haven't read (or listened to) it earlier. I did some searches on the web about 1984 this morning and found this site: The Complete Newspeak Dictionary, which I found interesting.

Baby swimming

We took our 4 month old son Erik (see earlier post) to baby swimming today. It was our first time doing this so we didn't really know how to handle him in the water, and what he "could do". We mostly let him splash around in the water but we let him do a quick dive once. He handled it so well! We thought he would get scared and start crying, but when he came up he just looked around a bit confused and that was it. That's my boy!

I thought I'd post a selection of my sunset photos. I have probably about a month worth of sunsets, and I'll start with this one. It was taken through the car window on Aug 15, 2004 just north of Falkenberg, on the west coast of Sweden. Don't you just love when you can see the rays of sun like that?

September 11th

Thankfully it came and went, September 11th, at least for us here in Europe. Since 2001 it's like everyone is just waiting for some terrible act of terror to happen.

Erik in the car

A charmer as always. Waiting in the car while mum is buying gas. Photo taken with my camera phone.

A Trekkie in the making?

My four month old son is enjoying(?) one of his first "real" meals, a table spoon of potato and corn purée. Photo taken with my camera phone.

Honestly I don't know if a click really makes a difference, but I think it is worth a try.

Zeon SolSuno watch

A couple of weeks ago I bought this really cool watch. It's called Zeon Solsuno. Instead of the regular hands most analog clocks have, this one has 138 colored LEDs to show the time, date and weekday. The little lights aren't on all the time, but operate in "flickering mode", which means they flash very briefly each second. With the a press of a button they will light up, shining continously for 15 seconds. The photo to the left shows what 11:55:10 pm looks like on the Zeon Solsuno. When it displays the date it uses one of the seconds 1-31 as the day, one of the hours 1-12 as the month and one of the hours 1-9 as the year (the last digit of the year, so in 2004 the LED at 4 is lit). The weekday is show as one of the hours 12-6, for example 12 is monday and 6 is sunday. The watch also has three alarms which are AM/PM aware. It comes in two versions, stainless steel and titanium. I have the titanium and I'm very happy with it. It's a very solid watch with an excellent finish.

It's a really geeky and cool watch that makes people ask you about it! Learn more at SolSunoWorld.

Oh dear, the spammers really do everything I don't know why they have done this, but have a look at this URL I found in a spam message the other day:


Imagine when the spammer phones the person running the webserver: "Hey Bob, I need you to set up another couple of unique sub-domains for me, I'm sending out some emails again...yeah, I have the first one here, let me spell it for you..."!

(I had to split the URL in two lines BTW, it was too long for this table)
