Getting real close to christmas now! Today
was really cold,
and we saw the first signs of something resembling winter
Been out getting some last minute gifts, now I've got to
take care of some wheelin'n'dealin' with my insurance
companies (notice the use of the plural form of the word,
it's a mess).
My CK watch broke yesterday, 20 minutes after the store
closes. The warranty's last day was yesterday. Yippie! It's
like something you joke about, but it really happened.
Well, I managed to sweet-talk them in to let me repair it
using the warranty anohow, so it's no big deal.
I also have to get reimbursed for my other watch that I
lost. Just reported it lost, let's see if I did the right
thing paying that insurance all those years...
And to top it all off, I broke my brand-spanking new Palm
Vx when I was sailing in the British Virging Islands...
dropped my 1.75 liters (~ 0.6 US gallons I think) glass
bottle of Bacardi Rum
straight on the
screen. Ouch. That's
got to hurt. Will I ever get a new one? I feel handicapped
without it, had to go back to my half-working Palm Personal
from the stoneages...
Ah, Åke & Simon each bought a PlayStation 2
the other day.
We set up Simon's at our place in Stockholm, and played
away for quite some time, some game called Dynasty
2 or something. Those games are really impressive,
wise. Wow. Sadly enough we didn't buy a memorycard. Big
mistake. I went out today and got one for Simon, it's a
must (like we say it in sweden, that is).
Took a look at Microsoft's Encarta today at a
computerstore. Say what you will about them, but that's one
cool application. I asked the MS sales persen when they
will release it under the GPL,
and he just started foaming.
Too bad, I'd download it for GNU/Linux anyday. :)
Well, gotta wrap some of these things around me up for
gifts now, see all of you later.
