Reflections from a Swede in Norway.

Here you will find my small graffiti board where I write about things I come to think about.

In my blog, I write about the general unfairness of life, about spam mail, vintage computers, board games, Norwegians, current and not-so-current affairs, technology and whatever else occurs to me — in other words, a glorious mess. All opinion expressed here are of course my own, and all similarities with any living people is of course intentional.

Last chance

Published: Sunday 2005-07-10.

I brought the digital radio I bought recently with me to Helsinki, and it found a whole bunch of channels, among them some channels that aren’t available in analogue form. Unlike Norway, unfortunately, Finland has decided to end their trial of digital radio. Or, no, that’s not entirely true, they have decided to end the trial of DAB at the end of next month, and have instead decided to use the digital TV network for future radio transmissions. It is a bit sad that they can’t come up with a common standard to use at least for all of Europe, it is annoying to have to have different radio receivers in different countries.

Speaking of digital TV, it doesn’t seem that the hotel I am staying at have converted to digital TV yet. Even though the TV set had a lot of special functionality that required its own keyboard(!), I for instance missed the Swedish language channel in my room. But that’s okay, I wasn’t planning on staying in the hotel room watching TV all too much.
