“What does this tattoo mean?” the guy shouted over the hammering music and touched my forearm. I flinched and looked up – and right then another guy charged at me from my right, through the darkness and a thick wall of paraffin smoke. … Continue reading →

The boat is full to the brim with gear. Tanks, boxes, backpacks, dive gear, four people. There's barely room for one person to stand on the actual boat deck, without standing on some piece of gear or other. I'm sitting on the back bench, struggling to bow down low enough to get my fin on my feet. The driver grabs the fin and starts helping them on, her red hair falling from under her inca wool cap. No need to do everything by yourself, this is work diving - ask for help. Continue reading →

I watched her car drive down the street and turn out of sight, then tugged my trolley bag and went to search the correct entrance to my accommodation for the night. It was one of those houses where one of the entrances was illogically on a crossing street, which took a while to figure out. I did very little but dump my luggage in and exchange a few words with my hosts before heading back out. Continue reading →

Sitting on the porch, watching the silver coin sun crawl across the cloudy sky, falling asleep for minutes of weird, disturbing dreams time after time. Feeling tense, alienated, thoroughly frustrated, the trees hiss like the wind would be driving in some epiphany that'll probably blow past me. Continue reading →

We’ve been spending the last few Christmas seasons at our home, but this year decided to go to my parents in North Carelia. After spending the first night in Polvijärvi at my younger sister’s old room, I strongly feel that we made the right choice. After a hectic autumn, the tranquility here is just awesome. [...]

As promised earlier, I’ve now published four of the sessions from Linux Collaboration Summit 2010 which was held in San Francisco in April. They’re viewable in blip.tv, and I’ve decided to follow the licensing Linux Foundation itself has for the … Continue reading →

November is the hardest month in Finland – it is cold, dark, and wet. And when it is not raining, there is sleet coming from the skies and slush on the ground. The Finnish name of the month – ‘marraskuu’ – means the month of the death. Isn’t that lovely? Anyhow, the weather outside has made [...]

I've been intrigued by the massively multiplayer games for a long time. I've played some Anarchy Online and tried free demos of a couple of others, but haven't really gotten into any of them, mostly due to the grind of the games being such a bore: the games don't properly start until you've invested dozens of hours and made friends with other players. These games are commonly called massively multiplayer online something-or-other , usually roleplaying games . The "massively" is just needless...

We've been looking for a boardgame and have heard plenty of good things about Ticket To Ride . Eventually we got the Europe edition , because the map looked a lot more interesting than in the original US edition. We've only played it together once, but came away impressed by the simple, rich rules. The components are also first-class. What really impressed me was their online version . You get a code with the boardgame which allows you to play the game's online version for an unlimited time...

More shameless remarks by Larko -

Related to a discussion about winter weather and road conditions, I searched up a post in this blog a few years back. Embedded in the post is a YouTube video about slippery road conditions in Seattle. The video shows cars bumping into each other as drivers in Seattle are not accustomed to snow and ice […]

I am a healthy person. Regardless, I can't play Burnout for more than around half an hour at a time: I can't keep gas (RT) and nitro (A) down all the time without my right hand aching. I have often wondered how much my life would change if I was no longer able to hold a joypad or use a keyboard and mouse. (It's pretty scary, actually: people break their hands all the time.) Everyone is not as lucky as I am . I find the people's dickheadedness in this post's comments section astonishing. The guy...

FI: Moikka! Voi että kun aika menee niin nopeasti..eilen oli tasa vuosi, kun sain urheilu vamma..ja just eilen (eli vuoden päästä) olen juoksenut 18km (keskinopeus 11,7km/h). Minun ensimmäinen 18km pitkästä aikaan..Oli aika helppoa juostaa koko matka, viimeinen kilometri oli ehkä vähän haastava..mutta silti olen pärjännyt hyvin :) Ohjelmaan mukaan minulle oli pitänyt eilen juostaa 7km..eli meni vähän yli ;-) Jos jotain elämässä ei menee niin kuin haluat ja et saa mitä haluat...

FI: Pieni lista sitä, mitä haluan ja toivoon tänä vuonna. Тämä lista,  ei ole “Uuden Vuoden lupaukset” -lista. RU: Маленький список того, что я хочу/желаю что бы исполнилось в этом году. Это не список "Обещания на Новый Год". FI: 1. Juoda enemmän vettä. Tällä hetkellä juon todella paljon teetä, joskus limonaadia, ja todella harvoin kahvia. Toivoon että “oppin” juoda vettä ainakiin 2l...

Niinhän se sitten meni se odotettu puhelukin, että ei niitä hyviä uutisia ollut herra J:llä kerrottavana laisin. No sen verran toki, että laskua vastaan lupasi korvata muuttokuluja sataan euroon saakka. Sillähän saakin sitten melkein bensat jo ostettua, ainakin osalle matkaa… Vaan kun sukulaisille tarpeeksi venytti alahuulta, sai kuitenkin sen Toukokuun vuokran sovittua, ja sehän liennee tärkeintä, että saa tän muutto-operaation edes jostain päästä käyntiin. Nyt täällä...

Thanks to some Russian spam (which all my accounts in LJ have been suffering for a long time, without a fix, and it being the # 1 reason for me having moved to Wordpress a while ago. Well gee, mercolaubu , thank you for your spam comments, you have won an instaban here), I realized how long it has been since the last update. It only took about 2 weeks to receive the green card. It's of the newer, actually green type. Green colored that is. A credit card sized card, crippled with RFID tags...

Elämä on mennyt harppauksin eteenpäin. Exmies koitti taas sekoittaa elämääni mutta huojennuksekseni se ei liikuttanut minua millään lailla. Opinnot ovat ohi ja valmistumispäivä häämöttää. Tänään sain kaksi ensimmäistä työtarjousta ja ensi viikolla kaksi työhaastattelua vielä odottaa. Sashan kanssa asiat ovat hyvin. Heräsin aamulla hänen kainalostaan ja noustessani hän tarttui vain tiukemmin kiinni. Meinasi tulla kiire aamun työhaastatteluun kun toisen kainalossa oli...

(takes a deep breath) Take a shower Find clothes to wear Find the keys Take the dog out Put on makeup Brush hair Eat breakfast Make lunch All in 30 minutes. Just as I was entering work thinking that I pulled it off I got a call from H. "Do you have the keys to the car?" OMG I did. Sitting in my purse from last night and of course we don't have a spare. So I...

Due to a memory failure earlier this week I ran out of toilet paper this morning and had to inspire. At the corner store, buying – among other essentials – toilet paper, I detected that I had forgotten to pick my new bank debet card and the old one had meanwhile expired. I was lucky […]

I’ve been collecting interesting places to my must go places list from late 20th century, and it has gradually shrunk over the years. Not every year, but like six cities in a decade. This month I multiplied the pace by visiting in two places, first a week in Madrid, Spain, and then two days in [...]

 Kansainvälisen avaruusasema ISS:n miehistö tekee sen mistä ihmiskunta on unelmoinut jo vuosisatoja: Se löytää maan ulkopuolista elämää. Erään Amerikkalaisen koulun oppilaat saavat kunnian nimetä tämän yksisoluisen ihmeen Calviniksi mutta Calvinin yksisoluisuus on yllättävän monipuolinen. Sekä aggressiivinen.  Pidän avaruushirviö elokuvista joten kun Lifen traileri tuli vastaan niin leffa meni pakko nähtävien listalle. Eikä Life ole huono tai tyystin turha mutta eipä...
