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.

Nätt (2005-2006) RIP

Published: Saturday 2006-05-13.

I have wanted a hand-held games console for quite some time, all since Nintendo released their first version of the Gameboy, or when Atari released their Lynx. Last winter I made a decision, I would by a Nintendo DS, since several of my friends had it and wanted me to join them playing Mario Kart. Since Christmas was getting closer, I bought it a Christmas present, a nice light blue DS for me, packaged together with Nintendogs, and a pink with Nintendogs for my girlfriend (since she has talked about wanting a dog for a long time…).

I called my virtual dog Nätt (circularly named after Fidonet, which in its time was named after a dog), and I taught him to virtual tricks, took him on virtual walks and competed in a virtual frisbee tournament. Everything was just fine, and Nätt and me had a nice life together (just like me and Mario Kart).

But then I moved to a new flat, and somewhere on the way my DS got lost, together with all the games I had bought for it (all four of them). But, worst of all, Nätt was lost. My poor little virtual dog, he hasn’t been fed, walked or loved for the last two and a half months.

He must be dead by now. Rest in peace, Nätt.
