Old blog

The old blog is a mix of several older reincarnations of my blogs… Norwegian, english, technical, diary entries, jokes, you name it. :)

The Little Chap Who Follows Me

A careful man I must always be; A little fellow follows me. I know I dare not go astray For fear he’ll go the self same way. I cannot once escape his eyes, Whate’er he sees me do, he tries. Like me he says he’s going to be; This little chap who follows me. He […]

It Couldn't Be Done

Somebody said that it couldn’t be done But he with a chuckle replied That “maybe it couldn’t,” but he would be one Who wouldn’t say so till he’d tried. So he buckled right in with the trace of a grin On his face. If he worried he hid it. He started to sing as he […]

Invictus

Out of the night that covers me, Black as the pit from pole to pole, I thank whatever gods may be For my unconquerable soul. In the fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of chance My head is bloody, but unbowed. Beyond this place of wrath and […]

Mine Chrome-utvidelser

I tråd med mitt tidligere innlegg om gratis programvare for Mac presenterer jeg her en liste over mine favoritt-utvidelser for Chrome. Vanlige utvidelser Adblock Reklameblokkering. Funker greit uten at du må konfigurere deg ihjel. Applet2Object Chrome liker ikke applet-taggen så bra, så en del nettsider som bruker denne gamle, utdaterte og ugyldige taggen (f.eks mange […]

Hvorfor jeg forlater Twitter

Jeg har vært veldig aktiv på Twitter. På noen automatiske ranking-tjenester har jeg sett meg rangert som den mest aktive tvitreren i Troms fylke, og jeg frykter at det er helt korrekt. Derfor er det vemodig når jeg nå har kommet frem til at jeg må forlate Twitter. I begynnelsen av min Twitter-karriere var det […]

A gameserver ping plugin for Munin (copy)

My personal server has been acting up lately, to be precise; the Call of Duty (1) gameserver that runs on it. I installed Munin for monitoring it, but really wanted something that would show the actual slowdown the players experienced. So I did a Munin plugin. In PHP ofcourse. ;) It's my first Munin plugin, […]

Detaljer og nuancer

Der må kun stikke få af de små fakta frem, hvis de store skal ha deres chancer. Detaljer er til for at dyrkes af dem som dog ikke fatter nuancer. -- Piet Hein (funnet hos Martin Bekkelund)

Zailor.no leverer ikke. Noensinne.

Nå har jeg kranglet og kranglet og kranglet, og føler det er på tide jeg får advart andre mot Zailor.no - firmaet som har gjort tilværelsen sur for meg i de siste månedene. 12. oktober forhåndsbestilte jeg New Super Mario Bros Wii fra Zailor.no fordi de var billige, og jeg tidligere har fått spill sendt […]

Bash.org script (copy)

I wanted a script to show a random quote from bash.org in every new terminal session. PHP is my language of choice. :) Save as "bashquote" and chmod 755 (rwxr-xr-x) to use (make sure the regexp looks exactly as below in preg_match_all()). The script only works in a Unix/Linux environment. #!/usr/bin/php <?php // Use http_proxy […]

A small RSS filter written in PHP (copy)

Nearly all news sources has some posts I'm not interested in. I can't believe no RSS readers has implemented good enough filters yet. But I anyway I wrote my own. :) I don't think my server can handle too much usage, so I'm just giving you the code as is. <?php $xml = simplexml_load_file($_GET['input']); $ix […]
