Mars Ultor -

Chapter 1 I visited Amoena last week, as she already announced in her blog . I wanted to finally meet her new boyfriend J.R. (not so new anymore) and her new puppy, Papu (aww!). Amoena and J.R. were really cute and funny together, and I totally fell in love with Papu. She was a little wary and shy at first and barked at any movement that I made. But by the evening, she let me touch her already and accepted me as her new friend. The next day we were on super-cuddly terms. I love dogs that like...

Ratatoskur -

It's a shame most of our foreign customers are from non-english-speaking countries. I don't get to practice my verbal skills nearly as much as I'd like, at least not with natives. Today I had to help out a fellow cashier with some Eastern Europeans 'cause she doesn't speak English at all and she needed to see some ID since they were paying with a credit card and the sum was so high and yada yada. So she tapped me on the shoulder and told me to talk to them. Asking them for an 'ID' got me a...

Second Life Blog by Aino Kanto -

I have participated in several nice virtual conferences in Second Life during the last weeks. Unfortunately I just have had lack of time so I haven't made any notes to my blog about these activities. Luckily my friend avatars have been more active in the blogospshere so I just give some references to the blogs and to the websites about the conferences.Jokaydia Unconference, September 27th - 28th,

Life! C'est pas beautiful, ça? -

Onnin puolitoistavuotispäivä lähestyy ja seuraamme suurella mielenkiinnolla lapsen kielen kehitystä. Puheenpulputusta tulee hurjasti mutta selviä sanoja vielä vähän harvemmin. Vaikka kateellisena joskus kuuntelenkin samanikäisten yksikielisten kolmesanaisia lauseita, tiedän ettei meillä ole aihetta huoleen. Puheen ymmärryksessä pojalla ei ole mitään vaikeuksia, ei suomeksi, espanjaksi, ranskaksi kuin englanniksikaan. Jos espanjankielisessä puheessa vilahtaa sana perro , alkaa...

Finns Down Under -

I thought I would share a bit of critique I have received from the book. Mainly the critique has been positive. Readers have given positive feedback from the images and the general look of the book. Some people have given thanks for the translations (many children of the first generation immigrants do not have a good grasp of Finnish) and some people have given special thanks for letting the voice of the interviewees to be heard in the text. The voice has also been the most criticized part of...

Ultimate luxury -

Hi everyone! My winter holiday started almost a week ago, but I've had so much things to do so I haven't really had any time for blogging! Or anything to write about either... Haha. Last weekend I went to Helsinki to meet my relatives for the first time in ages. I had a pretty awesome adventure with my 19 years old cousin. He took me to some random pubs in Kallio and when we decided to go home it was snowing like hell. But at least we had some great time. Cardi Lip Service Top Cubus Skirt Cubus...

Viestejä verkossa -

Minä tiedän. Olen käynyt Facebook-profiilissasi, monta kertaa. Aluksi olit nettiyhteisön Nobody, sinulla oli vain neljä ystävää. Nämä neljä vaivaista olivat kaksoissisaresi, hänen miehensä ja sekä kaksi sekarotuista koiraasi. Painit Facebookin hylkiö-sarjassa, kunnes aloitit määrätietoisin nousun. Ryhdistäydyit ja aloit luoda kontakteja, etsimään aktiivisesti kavereita. Huomasit myös, että kavereita voi ostaa. Ostit muutaman lemmikiksi ja laitoit samalla myös itsesi...

Lightweight Linux -

Knowledge of Linux probably helped me indirectly to get my job -- even if I don't actually need to do any hacking as part of my job. People geekier than me can do the heavyweight php scripting much more efficiently than I can. In addition, I decided to use OS X as main main desktop system at work. Even as OS X user my Linux background (if using Linux on desktop for more than 10 years qualifies as a background) helps me with some of my daily computing needs. For example, I'm not very efficient...

Here's a snippet of Inform 7 source code: When play begins: calculate how many labyrinth rooms should have each shape; give shape to the shapeless labyrinth rooms; restore the labyrinth to its virgin state. All the ontological engineering seems to be done with natural-language-like statements. And there's an impressive-looking IDE for Mac and Windows. This looks just so cool.

A few days ago I finished Standish , the gay Regency romance by Erastes, and I've been meaning to write about it ever since. I'm really tired, so this is going to be horrible, but I need to do this before I start forgetting stuff. This will contain spoilers. Very shortly put, I enjoyed Standish . But not without some reservations. I'll go through those first. The melodrama was a bit too much for me now and then. I did put the book down a few times because of it. This is of course a matter of...

Bigotry Unspecified -

First day in my new occupation and I oversleep. Had the alarm going off at 2am, but for some reason I woke at 3:38. Screamed a while and then made a horrible show of getting to work. Poor Wife. And poor dog too. Got there, though, and nobody laid me off yet. I guess they're used enough at beginners having a hard time getting their sleep-cycle adjusted. Tonight I'm going to get myself another alarm clock. The bigger the better :) The time I was at work, getting a walk-through on the district I'm...

OR: What do pop songs have to do with neuropsychology? Inspiration can come from strange sources. Some time ago, I was listening to a pop song I had heard many times before without paying that much attention to it. It is one of the less impressive tracks on an album by a well-known singer and though it is pleasant, the words grate me a tad and therefore I had mostly ignored them. The song is about how someone close to the singer/protagonist has died and how they now are in heaven watching over...

my life and other lies -

It's a handy guide, for those who join the rally cry for "freedom", and have no idea what they're talking about. Someone else choosing to do whatever they want with their life and/or body has no effect on you and your bullshit opinions. How do you explain a gay couple to your kids? How do *I* explain why someone is being an asshole because two adults of the same gender are holding hands? "Dad, why is that woman yelling mean things to those two men?" Because she's an asshole, Timmy. She's an...

Stephu's Complete Guide to Celestial Linguistics -

So it is. Keeping up this blog is weighing heavily upon my shoulders and its death would not be grieved by me nor by any other clearheaded being.:) But a jedi's gotta do what a jedi's gotta do... So here's your routine update of the year: My life is like ever it was, or at least since I've been enrolled at the University (of Helsinki). Nothing important has happened recently (i.e. I haven't got any new Miyazaki movies, although by now I've seen most of his Ghibli-productions, only Porco Rosso...

I have discovered who must have been the coolest Zen master in history: Ikkyū Sōjun (1394-1481) Just see what kind of stuff he wrote: "Zen's finished stick your brain in a peach branch guzzle sake sing until you have no throat then words come by themselves" "don't hesitate get laid that's wisdom sitting around chanting what crap" but also: "nature's a killer I won't sing to it I hold my breath and listen to the dead singing under the grass" "so many words about it the only language is you...

Paholaisen-Asianajaja -

Olen pariinkin kertaan kritisoinut toimimatonta huumepolitiikkaa. Poliitikot ovat valmiita puolustamaan lainsäädäntöä, joka ei näytä toimivan millään mittarilla. Jos mittareina ovat kansalaisten turvallisuuden ja elintason parantaminen. Ongelmakäyttäjien hoito ja kuntoutus jäävät veronmaksajien vastuulle. Maksajiksi jäävät kaikki muut paitsi huumekartelli, joka kerää kaiken rahallisen voiton. Tietenkin myös yksityistetty vankeinhoito hyötyy valtavasti huumelaista. Mutta...

W-w-w-wabbits ahead! -

I wish I could speak several other languages and all of them fluently. Especially languages like Japanese, Chinese, Spanish, French and Russian. I love to communicate with people and I love to learn about other cultures and their way of perceiving the world, and I think much of it is related to the language one uses and you never can get close enough without being able to understand the language. I wish I also would be able to maintain a better grip of myself, so that it would be possible to...

Today is going to be just meager commentary on certain interesting news items with no real snark directed at the paper itself. I know, disappointing, isn't it. But even I must rest sometimes. The latest fad with regard to future development of the town seems to be floating houses, planned on the mouth of the river running through the town. Both the planned areas seem to be meant for the more wealthy folk, which appaears to be the case with most new developments. Fancy buildings put up with...

Due to technical difficulties elaborated below (or above... this world of online text is so confusing) I missed two days of e-newspapers and therefore had only my notes to work on. I decided to construct one post on the 6th and 7th day from the remains of the two separate posts. Since I had no access to the original articles anymore, the post is necessarily more about general musings than this specific publication. ------- It's that wondrous time of the year again when all over the media little...

Fishpool -

Sarah Sharp is a member of a very rare group. She's a Linux kernel hacker. Even among that group, she's unique - not because of her gender (though that probably is distinctive in many of the group's social gatherings), but because she's brave enough to demand civil behavior  from the leaders of the community. I applaud her for that. Now, I have immense respect for Linus Torvalds and his crew. I've been a direct beneficiary of Linux in both professional and personal contexts for soon to be two...
