If you agree that copyright term on sound recordings should not be extended past 50 years, please, sign this petition today:


I personally have a very hard time to see the use of giving these thieves more than 10 years of copyright. No new music is going to be produced just because we keep sending truckloads of money to Abba. That's just stealing from the poor to give to the rich.

Englishmen trying surströmming

Surströmming is a dish from northern Swedish. It's canned rotten Baltic Herring. Sehr mumsig, as you would say if you're Swedish and can't speak German. However, for some reason it seems like foreigners have a little problem eating it because of the smell:

(The fish itself has a sour fresh taste, just like it doesn't smell. Imagine a rotten egg with fish-flavour. That's the smell.)

Christmas photos

I've taken a lot of Christmas photos, but I forgot the cord, so I can't download them into the computer until I get home again on the 30th. But I'll challenge everyone else to put up photos in the meantime:

Christmas 2007 (I'll start working on it now, so it might be empty...)

I lied a little in the first question though. I know what Leopard is, but that's about it.

No big prize or anything, but might be fun.

And this guy knows marketing...

So you're planing to get an iPhone for some reason that you don't know? Well, have a read:

He hates Garfield though... No wonder he prefer the tasteless competent Nokia instead of the stylish moronic iPhone!

BitTorrent and the future of TV-show producers

I just saw this very interesting speech about how to find a business model for producing TV-shows when people are downloading it with BitTorrent. Of course it's distributed via BitTorrent <img:http://www.cathug.com/kittyemo_crazy.gif>


(The answer is of course that the producers should sell ads themselves and integrate them in the show, without making them so annoying that people edit them out or watch another show, but the figures he's showing are interesting.)

Might give a thought to you who are trying to sell your artwork. If your paintings are spread a lot on the Internet, advertisers would love to put a little text on them. But the easiest way is put an ad for your website on them, and sell ads on your website, but that's also way less money.

New mouse

I've got a new mouse and it's much better than my previous one (and hopefully it will not stop working now and then), but:

1) It needs a paper under it as my table seems to be too shiny for it.
2) It behaves differently! I totally lost the feeling I had before and have to relearn how to point. I'm trying to adjust the mouse-settings, but it's hard to get it the same.

Back from Rome

I came home tired and a little sick from Rome yesterday. 

Here are some photos:

Strawberry milk...

So I happen to make the blender blend over a little so that the bench got filled with strawberry milk. And that cut the power of the entire flat (including [krill]). Luckily [krill] has a UPS, but the network card isn't connected to that.

And the strawberry milk wasn't even that tasty...

I made a clean spot by accident and now I had to clean half the flat!

I've tried to cut the power to [krill] now and it works just fine. The only problem is that the network is going down when it loses power. As I'm only moving the cord it's only for a few seconds, but it's a little annoying that I can't stick the router into the UPS too.

Tomorrow Monday, they will start rebuilding my bathroom and therefore cut the power now and then. If nothing goes wrong, Elfpack will be up and running all the time despite that.

Whee, I live with a porn-star again!

Lilo is yet again found when you search for images containing "sex" on Google (if you are having safe search on). It's only been there since yesterday, so in for example Sweden (where I am) you can't find her yet.

It brings me and Lilo a few extra bucks per day. Nice! Thank you, Google! :)

Oh, and the porn? It can be found on www.cathug.com/3

Another idiot District Attorney that pisses me off

In case you didn't already know it: You're all criminals and sex-offenders. And if you have people like Andrew Thomas, District Attorney, Maricopa County as your DA, you better get your ass together and kick them out of office with all the means you have. No one is going to do it for you and the zealots will fight back, but if you don't, you might end up in jail.

Well, here is the explanation for why it's important to lock away a 16-year old porn-surfer for life:

"Skål!" is Swedish for "Let's drink!", almost as "Cheers!".

Annals of Internal Medicine, 02-01-2007 has finally published yet another big study that confirms what has been known for a long time: Adult Europeans should drink 2 (male) or 1 (female) glasses of wine or the equality in another drink to lover the risk of health problems, mostly cardiovascular diseases and this is even true for people with too high blood pressure.

Another previous study has shown that if you drink alcohol, you're more likely to be smart.

Unfortunately both these studies also confirms that you shouldn't drink too much. The first says that the higher blood pressure is starting to cause problems starting with just one glass too much. The second study says that your memory starts to fail with hangovers (or being drunk).

I guess the positive results aren't valid at all for people who are alcohol intolerant, pregnant or are likely to get killed in a car-crash if they drink a glass of wine at lunch.

But well, Skål!
