I spent the last few days online trying to get Mattermost working on my home server. It looks like a promising replacement for Slack, very polished and professional and the installation process is well documented. The only twist was that, since I’m already running Apache on the server, I figured I’d set it up to … Continue reading "Strange problems with self-hosted Mattermost? It might be your router’s fault"

Wanderlust -

We’re the boys of the ocean. Our first steps were on the sand, as well as our first dates. We came here those days when we skipped school and when we felt sad or angry.

New York is full of restaurants and successful Latino culture. As you can imagine it was not an easy task to put together a list of those who eat, Latino restaurants . Limit some of the guidelines. Each restaurant was nominated by a panel of local people. Restaurants were evaluated on the basis of the quality of authenticity, power and access for all, regardless of budget. After much work, it is a pleasure to introduce this amazing list. A swallowing and drinking, THAT is a great World !  ...

I have a terrible summer flu, I had to stay home today. My throat have been sore - couldn't speak or eat much. I haven't made many or 'big' things today but a little stitchery any way. It was one motif from a Gardener's Journal called 'Birds in the tree'. Aren't they cute? Have a warm and happy summer weekend!

RealWorld . . . can it be? -

Cars are like birds. Or fish. They move in tight flocks, maneuvering in harmonic unison. Each car following tightly the movements of the whole flock: When the flock turns, each car turns; when the flock stops, each car stops. - Right? How else could cars run just a couple of meters apart at over 100 km/h? What the birds and fish can easily do, the cars can not do. So they collide when something unexpected happens. Causing death, injury and damage. Yet each driver has agreed to play by common...

Visiting Europe with Vespa -

Prague, Czech Again I found a hotel with no other Internet than just a computer in the lobby, so again just a short update without pictures. Yesterday I had some strange weather. When I left Bratislava, I first stated to drive toward Hungary, but just before the border it started to rain, heavy rain. I […]

Bearded Reedlings are back in Espoo. The birds were away for many years.  Now they can be found in the same place than five years ago.

Vaikka Pitkäperjantai on kirkkovuoden ainoa surujuhla niin toivon meidän kaikkien sydämmiin kirkkautta ja valoa. Toiveissa kuitenkin kevät tuo ihana vuodenaika joka tuo rakastamani perhoset ja kukat silmiemme eteen. Vaikka omassa elämässäni nyt surun ja murheen aika niin haluan uskoa uudistumiseen ja että tulee taas onnellisempia aikoja. Otinpa taas rakkaat Fiskarsin kahvalävistimet käyttöön .Ja tipusiahan siitä syntyi.Kaikki paperisälä tuli myös tuhottua. Opettelin samalla taas...

Light Scrape -

Snow The photograph was taken on March 25th. This morning I walked two hours in Nuuksio, circling around lake Kattilajärvi. Birds were singing, woodpeckers were knocking, and ice was moaning. It is spring. Yesterday I changed summer tires to the car. One tire was stuck and it took a while to get it loose. Today I changed summer tires to the bicycle, doing some cleaning and repairs as well. The front tire is a bit worn, and I pondered whether I should replace it with a new tire, but I guess the...

Light Scrape -

Display 1 Display 2 Display 3 Display 4 The photographs were taken yesterday morning in the north parts of Nuuksio, within a swamp that is circled by hills from all sides. It is the time of courtship display for capercaillies. Never before has it happened that one of the birds comes to present himself to me, and was not afraid at all. The bird followed me a couple of hundred meters across the swamp, and I took a lot of photographs, but had to leave because my fingers and toes were getting cold...

What will I ever do with my life? -

At your own peril: It'll be a long and wine-y road back to blogging. You'll see. Now that I have delegated the pungent mommyness - shit, spit and all that gore - from this blog to my other place of neglect and randomness (not a euphemism for what you're thinking, I swear), my new (and as of yet very bare and simplified, cough cough, hrmph, stupid Blogger keeps fucking changing on me all the time, at least once a year, grumble, what's with the 'need for growth?', whine) blog about bringing up a...

Needles and Pins -

Lately I've been really tired and busy somehow. When I've had the time I've been sitting in our balcony with our two cats. They've been running around being so excited about fresh spring air and birds (and the fact that when things get too scary they can run indoors). I've tried to sew some of my unfinished projects but I've been too tired to do even that. I made a promise to myself that this week I will only modify and fix some garments and start doing something new next week. So, I promise...

Normal 0 21 false false false FI X-NONE X-NONE The sun came out since we last talked. She still stays very low above the horizon, but as her delicate, shy rays hit my dusty rooms, I was shocked. I threw myself into cleaning mode. The temperature has been way down, -30ºC during some of the days. It is too cold to stay outside much, so there has been lots of time to clean. I am not nearly done yet, and not sure for how long I am inspired to keep going, but let’s hope lots gets done. This...

Tosin tulosta syntyi vain yhden kisan verran, mutta kuitenkin: Oulussa OKK:n kisoissa saatiin sunnuntaina 12.5. voitto 10 virhepisteellä. Sari ja Jeppe, OKK 12.5.2013 D-rata, 1. sija, 10 vp Ilmeisesti Eija Berglundin radat olivat muille jotenkin vaikeita, me kuusamolaiset päästiin sitten pokkailemaan palkintoja vaikka nollaratoja ei juuri tehtykään... Emmi ja Misti olivat kahdesti 3. sijalla 5 virhepisteellä ja Ansku ja Nyytti samoin 3. sijalla muistaakseni 10 virhepisteellä, kunnes...

Chocolate, Coffee and Cards Challense #30    For the Birds - Linnuista Bluebird is singing just for You! Sininen on lempivärini, arvasitkin varmaan :) Taustana lehtikuvaa ja suklaarasian pehmusteen sisustaa (tuo kuplainen raita). Paljon lumiainetta maisemaleimakuvaan ja vähän sinistä. Samoja aineita myös voittona saatuun oksiin ja lintuun. Ne ovat ruskeita pahvileikkeitä. Erottuvat kivasti koholleen kuvasta. Sinisinä käytin Mementoa ja ProMarkereita sekaisin. *** Päivä jolloin en...

Levottomat sormet -

Puolitoista viikkoa sitten olin Lappeenrannan neulojien neuleviikonlopussa Tuhannen tarinan talossa Luumäellä. Menomatkalla poikkesin Urheilu Koskimiehen 43-v synttäreillä. Kaupassa on viime vuosina perinteisesti annettu synttärivuosien määrän suuruinen alennus prosentteina, eli tällä kertaa alennus oli 43% normaalihinnoista. Alennus tietysti houkutteli paljon väkeä kauppaan, mutta onneksi isoon kauppaan mahtuu paljon väkeä.   Mukaan tarttuivat Merrellin paljasjalkakengät...
