New year/ New us -

Mun pitää hyväksyä asia, ettei tämä voi jatkua näin. Selailkaa vaikka mun ihan ensimmäiseen (AMY) blogiin ja luette että lupaan ja vannon, että laihdun että nyt alkaa uus elämä jne. Mutta ei ne dieetit ole koko elämän muutos. Laihut ehkä kilon, mutta lihot takas kun alat taas normaalisti.. Mulla ei oo ollut hiveästi kieltoja, paitsi ei makeeta, ei herkkuja, ei isoja annoksia, ei ilta-kuuden jälkeen... Ja aina kun joku näistä ei pitänyt (melkein joka pvä tuli jokin rikos)...

Daily Loaf -

Why won't the Holy see? On very select occasions does organised religion affect my life; at birth, when friends get married, at my sister's communion, when a close relative dies. I don't dislike strongly religious people, but I can't say I like some of the organisations they belong to, either. Every now and then, though, some of them cross the line. Just a few months ago, I was, along with all other homosexual men and women, categorically condemned by the Holy See as having "no social value"...

Construction Data -

How well are quantities and costs actually monitored and controlled on a construction project? How transparent is the information produced and how it can be verified with ease and accuracy? There are very elaborate project control systems in use, but do they really produce accurate, undisputable information and reports to top management? A potential client […]

A new serious vulnerability notice was announced yesterday.  Core Security announced a DOS (denial-of-service) vulnerability in the Wonderware Suitelink software suite. This vulnerability allows hackers to remotely cause the software to terminate. Suitelink is a SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) software that controls the process automation in major facilities such as power stations. DHS/US-CERT has also […]

Scalada - all about Scala -

Implicit conversion is a useful mechanism, because it lets you extend libraries retroactively, without actually changing them. Let's take a common example. We would like to repeat some String, say "nice" three times. We could write it as: def *(times: Int, original: String) = { def multiply(times: Int): String = { if(times > 1) original + multiply(times - 1) else original } multiply(times) } As a bit of a sidenote, multiply is not tail-recursive, because its recursive call is not the last thing...

Ajatusten fragmentteja -

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...

Scalada - all about Scala -

Ah, feels good to hack a bit of Scala after a while. A friend of mine was thinking about getting more lightweight syntax for list creation and I had urge to try something out. A simple way would be to create an implicit def that would lift a value to list:      implicit def valueToList[a](value: a) = List(value) Now you could have expressions like      5 :: 3 (of type List[Int]) But just for fun I tried different approach that uses functions as intermediate values. After playing with it a...

Heijaa ihmiset rakkaat! En ole ehtinyt taas viime aikoina paljon kirjoitella mutta jospa se tästä. Osittain johtunee siitä että en oikein välitä tästä blogspotista.. Mutta joo.. Heiiii Esa!

I've done lots of things since last post. I've been working (oh yeah) and dancing my legs off. Me and my friend Marianna, went to the western classical music tradition (classical music) - concert, organized by state of Estonia . Estonian country celebrates it's 90th year of existence, not necessarily the independence, but existence over easier and more difficult years. The concert was full of feelings, different ones, and the best thing was high class orchestra with great pieces of...

Muslims in Finland have joined the boycott and condemn Denmark and Islamists in London have threatened...

A journey to a healthier life. -

It seems that it's been exactly eight months since I last updated the blog. I've done a bit of soul-digging in the meantime... I've always suffered from a low esteem when it comes to my weight and appearance, but after confronting some painful childhood memories I think my "healthier life" project might have a more fertile breeding ground (is that an Engish expression?). However, I will probably continue updating the blog irregularly especially now since I'm off work for the summer and refuse...

Jepulis, 11 päivää Rakkautta ja Anarkiaa takana, 10 nähtyä leffaa ja ehkä jokin epätoivoinen yritys raapustaa niistä jotain tänne blogiin, että puolentoista viikon istumismaratonista jäisi jotain muutakin käteen kuin hämäriä muistikuvia. Control (****½) Onnistuin yllätyksekseni saamaan liput myös festarin odotettuun avausleffaan Joy Divisonista sekä nuorena kuolleesta laulajastaan Ian Curtisista. Sinänsä hauskaa, kun aiempina vuosina en ole edes yrittänyt päästä...

The BBC reports: Paris suburb sees fresh rioting The mayor's house is now under police guard following the riotingAbout 100 youths wielding baseball bats have fought French police in a Paris suburb, in the worst such violence since widespread riots in November.

AAMIAINEN RUOHIKOLLA -

Bataatissa on karotenoideja ja tofussa on isoflavoneita, jotka voivat vähentää aivosyöpäriskiä. Aivokasvaimet ovat yleistyneet viime vuosikymmenten aikana. Vaikka ne ovat vielä harvinainen syöpätyyppi, nykyinen matkapuhelinten käytön aloittaminen jo lapsena saattaa lisätä niiden määrää räjähdysmäisesti. Ruotsalaisen professorin Lennart Hardellin tutkimuksissa matkapuhelimen käytön teinivuosina aloittaneilla on nähty viisinkertainen pahanlaatuisen aivokasvaintyypin...

Can Boyd's principles be really implemented in business? Chet Richards talks about that in excellent article . This part: That is, if the employees didn’t commit to making the system work, it wouldn’t move at all. The Toyota Way is why they do it for Toyota and don’t for most other manufacturing companies. The other important point about the Toyota Way is that the system is always getting better at whatever it does. As one Toyota exec put it, whatever we do this year is baseline for next...

Was reading an article about Chrysler decreasing their decision time drastically and that led me to thinking about metrics that could be used to measure decision making. Couldn't think of any besides the obious of length of decision process. Brief googling didn't make me much smarter either. Please provide links if I have been blind and overlooked something. I would think it would be good to start with question if measuring decision making is even necessary? I think so, if for nothing else then...

” It’s decent, but it’s not brilliant.” That’s what my teacher said about my essay. Or actually, a collection of essays/commentaries. He said they were all lacking that something, that little something that distinguishes 7 from 5-6 (in IB 7 is the best grade you can get). I have to admit that I was at first a bit shocked, then devastated, then disappointed. I had always thought those essays were good and I was especially happy with the latest one. But apparently it just wasn’t...

While I've always known that you can control many of the applications running in OSX using applescript I have very rarely tried that myself. Now, as I have a use case of semi-automation of skype video calling for the kids I started experimenting. I did buy a tikitag rfid reader on cheap which will be used for triggering the call. Here's what will be triggered by the rfid tag. This simple script checks if person xxxxxx is online and tries to open a call if he is. At the same time the script...

The US occupation forces are not insensitive to the plight of the around 300 000 people they have driven from Fallujah. In fact, once the refugees are allowed to return, the ruins of their city are to be a model for the rest of Iraq. Dahr Jamail reports : Another example of the winning of hearts and minds of Iraqis is being formulated for the residents of Fallujah. The military has announced the plans it is considering to use for allowing Fallujans back into their city. They will set up...

Ja jo traditioksi muodostunut laskeudutaan lentokentälle vesisade odotti meitä Balillakin. Neuvoteltiin kyydistä ja lähdettiin matkaan vuoriston yli Balin pohjoiselle puolelle Lovina rannalle. Maisemat olisivat voineet olla hyvät, mutta rankkasade yön pimeys ja mutkainen serpentiinitie tekivät kolme tuntisesta ajosta aika raskaan. Mutta lopulta löysimme seuraavan resorttimme portin ja pääsimme tutustumaan uuteen majapaikkaamme. Sateesta ei ollut seuraavana aamuna merkkiäkään ja...

In addition to make skype video calls I thought it would be nice to give my kids some control over playing music on the iMac.

Spotify has plenty of Finnish children's music available so it has gained specific popularity in our household. This has rendered my older iTunes-control -scripts not that useful anymore. I decided to give Spotify scripting a go, even though I knew there's not applescript interface available. Thankfully simple key navigation is enough for the basic use case of "play random song from this playlist": -- Invoke Spotify simply by opening a Spotify playlist or artist URL open location...

As I have so wonderful friends in Frankfurt I must post this one here. (Please find the original source, Teknik 360, here . Thanks, TN!) * * * The German air controllers at Frankfurt Airport are renowned as a short-tempered lot. They not only expect one to know one’s gate parking location, but how to get there without any assistance from them. So it was with some amusement that we, a Pan Am 747, listened to the following exchange between Frankfurt ground control and a British Airways 747...
