So we finally moved (well, thats two weeks ago now). It was
UHaul action time, I took the
to Sunnyvale to pick up yakk and his stuff
course, as soon as we started moving stuff out, it began to
duh), and then went on to Eazel to pick up
his furniture (a lot less than any of us). After unloading
at the new
place, we went to pick up my crap and then the move was
time for beer at the kilowatt.
disaster struck - first off, I had to return the truck by 7,
so I got
up at 6. Then the truck just wouldn't start, the batteries
be utterly dead. Now I was pretty sure that we didn't leave
on, and I had noted that the battery indicator had been on
during the move. So I went down to the UHaul place and
issues, and they told me to call their repair center number.
waddled back to the truck, found a payphone and called. It
an hour to actually get them to send a guy by, during which
standing in the rain, enjoying the scenery that is 16th
morning at 7 till 8, really wonderfull, I'd suggest that to
coming by. So finally the repair dude called back and said
he'd be at
the truck in twenty minutes (woohoo). After a few attempts
jumpstarting the truck, he also arrives at the brilliant
that both batteries are utterly dead. So he ends up
before the truck will even sound like the old piece of crap
So I conclude the affair with having to search
frantically for a
gas station that has diesel, drive the truck back and almost
pay 40$ for being four hours late (which I didn't).
Thereafter I went
back to the old apt to clean on the rest of my room, and the
Of course now we have do deal with a property manager who
be fucking people over. The add for the apt mentioned the
from the roofdeck, even had a picture. When we looked at the
and signed the lease, we were told we could use the roofdeck
lease specifically mentions that we can use the roof. Of
the people who moved into the topfloor apartment (which is a
apt of which the top story is on the roof) were told that
was exclusively theirs. So now we either fight it out with
with the property managers. In addition to that, the two
the frames are broken still haven't been fixed and we still
for various doors. Too much shit to deal with right now...
... since the company also just laid of more than forty
basically everyone but a few managers (founders) and
laid off. So we release version 1.0 and lay off about 60% of
staff, that was a pretty though day for many of the
eazelites. Apparently with the generel dropping stock
investors pulled out and therefore we did not get the third
funding we wanted (which should also have been our last). By
off all those people, the company can continue a bit longer,
a chance to raise the needed money - it's going to be a
This also means that I might not be able to go to Guadec,
everyone will be doing 14 hour workdays the next few months
(again...) - that would totally blow.
So Kvan just visited me for a few days, he was in the
his annual cigar-smoking-visiting thing. Amongst things we

Tja, så man må sgu nok sige at nedsvinget lige

Det hårde smæk er at jeg nok ikke kommer til dk igenigen,
