I mentioned earlier that foster parents first had me sleeping separated from my foster brothers. Well, this just wouldn't do! The first long day foster parents were out the house (they call it "work" but I'm not convinced), I decided to put a stop to this nonsense, and made my own way to my foster brothers. See the explanation below: I might be short and pudgy, but I can sure as hell get what I want. You should have seen Foster Mum's face when she saw three puppies instead of two in the...

Making Indigoflood's Rats and Hatchets -

So the worst is behind us. The boys heard the songs after Sami went wild on them. A no-holds-barred situation between Sarhamaa and the tunes had taken some of them a little far from the original idea, and not everything was agreed upon, but still no fist fights broke out and I think we will slowly but firmly achieve common ground. The one with the most issues is probably going to be one of the oldest tunes, called Retreat, there was some major clipping done to it, and the guys felt it lacked...

So now the papers are inked. We have names signed and a deal sealed. Well actually Chuck still hasn't put his name under, but I don't think that's going to be a problem. First info to the world will be sent this week, so I'm expecting an increase in the readers of this blog. Dunno if anything's gonna happen, but I'm hoping atleast... Let's see, where did we leave off last time. We had one final rehearsal with the guys before Tero left for his honeymoon. The guys played through Kutteri, did a...

I got an inflammation from softening my skins to my right hand/wrist on the beginning of December and was so pissed off that I wanted not to write anything here. I’m still having the same problem, but by using a spatula I can work a bit – but carefully. I can’t actually clasp almost anything […]

Meant to write something about SKI on Troughput blog allready some time ago, but forgot about it. Now it popped up again from my Google Alerts. Just a generic comment on Bob Nardelli at helm of Chrysler, but in the post there are two books that I hadn't heard of before. Any of you read either of these and could give some comments? The Logical Thinking Process: A Systems Approach to Complex Problem Solving by H. William Dettmer A major rewrite of Dettmer's classic Goldratt's Theory of...

Damn, the days just seem to roll by when it's summer time. So we actually had the first recordings already a week or so ago. We took two days with the crew saturday and sunday (7.-8.6) and laid down drums, basses and most of the guitars for three tracks. Those tunes were Kutteri, Terra Fungus and Hats and Ratchets. For once we got to start in time, as the guys arrived at Vantaa on 10.30 Saturday morning. One missed turn took the extra 30 minutes but no harm there. Toni, Perttu and Aki had taken...

The age old problem of managing the civil works on industrial projects became apparent yet again at the recent PowerGen Europe 2008 exhibition in Milan on June 3-5th, 2008. The usual comment received from process automation people regarding civil works is that it always goes over budget and causes problems. Civil works seem to be […]

Scalada - all about Scala -

Scala has powerful mechanisms borrowed from other languages, but often one small unique feature is not discussed: this.type . In this article I'll explain it shortly and show you a demonstration. this.type is a singleton type, which means the type represents a certain object, not class of objects. It helps to solve the problem when you need to chain method calls of a class hierarchy, i.e. "value.method1.method2", where method1 is in super class A and method2 is in deriving class B. class A {def...

I spent the entire last weekend playing this game. If it had a less interesting story, I probably would have given up in the boss fight of episode 3, where I got stuck the first time, but I really wanted to see more. The following contains spoilers. I decided I needed to buy some time, so I searched for a game guide listing all the locations of the SAT Patches. Then I started a new game and made sure I picked up every one of them in the first three episodes. This time, when I got to the Zorn, I...

Steam Halloween sale had some interesting games at very affordable prices. The first one I played was Deadlight , a side-scrolling zombie apocalypse. I actually managed to finish it as it's often easier to just run and avoid the zombies or to lure them into traps than to actually try shooting them (I'm a slow shooter and really bad at aiming). The story isn't spectacular, but interesting enough, and the limited movement of a side-scroller makes it easier to figure out what to do next, because...

No niin, tulihan se sieltä! Viime postauksessa marisin oman nykyhevostelun tylsyyttä ja yksipuolisuutta. Sitten sain loistoidean, jota olen nyt kokeillut jo pari kertaa: Kahdelle tammalle satula selkään ja suitset päähän, itse toisen selkään ja toinen käsihevoseksi ja maastoon. Tämä siis vielä ihan normisettiä. Mutta laajensin hiukan ideaa ja keksin oivan tavan "ratsastaa" kaksi hevosta kerralla: heppa-1:n selässä maastoon ja heppa-2 käsihevosena. Sitten sieltä kentälle ja...

So another session on its way a week ago during the first and second of August. Again Sami brought his gear to Turku and we camped out at Indigofloods practise room. The saturday was reserved for all possible basic stuff Perttu needed to get done. First of laying down the rhythm tracks, to ease the singing, to the couple of songs that still had no guitars. Fortunately both were older tunes, and Peb went through them with no apparent problems. Altough the PRS he was playing had just new strings...

Introduction             I will begin my journey here. This paper let me express who I was through my thoughts on what literacy is to me. I expressed my views through my family and the ways we do and say certain things, basically our character as a whole. Throughout my life I showed how my experiences with literacy played a major role in the person I’ve become today. Being the first paper of the semester, this is where I first introduced myself as a writer. Not exactly sure of...

Not in Finnish today, sorry! You can find lots of very valuable hints of continuing the yarn and working the ends as you go in the TECHknitting-blog . I started discussing about a method of thinning the back join , but the answer grew and grew and I might include some pictures afterwards so I ended here. Sounds almost like I'm excusing for blogging again (I'm not! :) I'm a big fan of the back join to continue yarn, not matter whether the color is changing or not. Mostly the extra bulk does not...

The Real Encyclopedia -

Question: Why hasn´t there been any new Q&A´s during the past month? Answer: The problem is that at the moment most of the problems in this world are solved. I have spent the last month trying to create more problems so that the demand for this type of encyclopedia would remain. Other option would be to expand this to other galaxies which still have unsolved problems. I haven´t decided which road I will follow. Fortunately, I can guarantee that the problem solving continues. NEWSLETTER I...

I received a letter (what a great thing that people still write letters) asking the following question: What if the world was a perfect place? The answer lies between your eyes and your LCD display: At first, if the world was a perfect place, there would be more beavers. As an animal, beaver is a good example of a happy creature. Building and building, without a real reason to build. It doesn´t questionize its reason to live or its function on the earth. It just builds. It shows us how we...

STUFF ON MY MIND -

I found out about unschooling (not putting children to school and letting them direct their own life and learning) a couple of years ago, and finding it validated many thoughts I already had about school and raising children. It didn't take a lot of convincing for me to start to think that unschooling would be what I would have chosen for my life had I been given the opportunity and trust... What I could appreciate at first was the role that school had played in my life; it allowed adults...

A dialog I think that blogs should be dialogue, not a monologue. I just realized that mine has been the latter one and I want to fix that now.

Nu, fan, är våren här. Jag har strulat mig till jobbet iförd kostym och sneakers, hörlurar och solglasögon. På parkeringsplatsen bakom Finlandiahuset ylade jag i takt med James Dean Bradfield och kände hur fräknarna förökade sig i vårsolen. Det var första gången i år jag faktiskt kunde njuta av solskenet och värmen, och jag riktigt kände hur vinterkänslan försvann. Dessutom är det ju lagom tacksamt att vårens ankomst sker på en fredag. Nu kan man njuta hela helgen. Jag ska...

BBC News , a bastion of political correctness, has gone out of its way and published the following article : Does diversity make us unhappy? By Mark Easton Home editor, BBC News It is an uncomfortable conclusion from happiness research data perhaps - but multicultural communities tend to be less trusting and less happy. Research by the Home Office suggests that the more ethnically diverse an area is, the less people are likely to trust each other. The Commission for Racial Equality has also...

The youths threw stones and petrol bombs at police in the town of Montfermeil overnight. They also hurled stones at...

This is a war that is being waged, and has been waged for many years now, in all major Swedish cities. The truth of this conflict is denied, it is lied about and it is ignored. This war does not exist officially. The majority of the victims of this war are, as in so many wars, innocent civilians. In this case young Swedes. Petra Åkersson has compiled a sociology report and conducted several interviews with young immigrant robbers. I found it surprising, that the results of this report were...

Inner Design Has Many Authentic Uses for the Home We often think of an inner developer is one who creates awesome houses, the like of which we see on developer tv programs for the "rich and famous" but there are many details to use an inner developer. Many houses these days are developed in "cracker box" style with each one looking similar to the one next entry. Individuality can be possible with some cost-effective and simple changes that can be helped by an inner developer who will provide...

New York Times kirjoittaa ympäristöhereetikoksi itseään kutsuvasta Stewart Brandista. En tunne henkilöä ja artikkeli kertoo enemmän henkilöstä kuin henkilön ajatuksista, mutta lainaan Brandilta pari miettimisen arvoista sitaattia: Biotekniikasta: “Starting in the 1960s, hackers turned computers from organizational control machines into individual freedom machines,” he told Conservation magazine last year. “Where are the green biotech hackers?” Ydinvoimasta: “There were...

I'm taking the basic or introductory course on operating systems which pretty much means reading about 600 pages of Tanenbaum's Modern Operating Systems and then going to the final exam. Some of things in the book like solving the classical IPC (InterProcess Communication) problems using the different IPC primitives (semaphores, monitors etc.) that include writing pseudocode. I think I'll understand and remember them better by writing them down as blog entries with possibly illustrations. This...

I'll start with the courses of the Fall semester Basic Course in Mathematics C3 The third and final basic math course in the CS program. The first half was pretty much Linear Algebra (matrices, eigenvalues/vectors etc, matrix exponent..) and then using them to solve systems of differential equations. Laplace transform was also introduced as an alternative to solving those problems. not. The first half was a bit scary at first because I had managed to miss the Mathematics 1 for CS program where...

One extreme to the other . It did work , though . Until i tied my life to someone. You cannot solve a problem before you know what the question is . I'm like a senior who takes up evening...

This was my third burger with a journalist from Helsingin Sanomat. He's making a story about hamburgers and I was interviewed for the article while tasting several burgers. Morrison's Grill & Green is a small restaurant in downtown Helsinki. Back in the day this place was called Dick Tracy's Diner and they were know to be a quick and cheap lunch restaurant. Only the interior and name has changed, everything else seemed to be as it was. The menu is almost the same as it used to be and they still...
