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.

You can find the most amazing things on-line

Published: Tuesday 2006-05-23.

It is a well-proven truth that you can find almost anything on-line. Perhaps not so surprising is that you can find cartridges for inkjet printers. Something slightly more surprising, but very good if you don’t remember it at the shop, is selling vacuum-cleaner bags on-line. You can even subscribe and get every fifth package for free if you want to, but to do that I guess you need to vacuum a little more often than I usually do.

Something a bit more surprising is that Ellos, the renowned Swedish post order firm, has a broken on-line service. Putting clothes in the shopping basket worked just fine, but absolutely nothing happened when we tried to send the order, so we took to send a normal paper-based order instead.

My colleague Axel “IIXII” Siebert found that the domain had been registered. It’s not everyone who has their own personal domain “squatter”. Congratulations Axel!

Du är ju ekonomiskt lagd, så det borde vara en sporre att dammsuga lite mer för att få gratis påsar.

Så gulligt att namnnapparen har en blogg hos Opera. För två år sedan blev han erbjuden 500 dollar för domännamnet, men tyckte att det måste vara värt betydligt mer, och förnyade domännamnet i mars. Under .org är det ännu alls inte registrerat, och den amerikansk-japanske artisten som registrerat .net har heller inget innehåll på sin sida.

Det finns ju fortfarande slumpmässiga fyra bokstävers kombinationer ihop med .com som är lediga, t.ex. azyq, xuvq eller wjvb. Att spekulera i domännamn är väl lite som att handla med lågt värderade aktier. Har man tur kan man pricka in en vinnare, men ofta är det bara en utgift.

Litt om fredagens premiere, ei vitsetegning i Iran, kondomer og idioter, HTML og idioter, og støvsugerposer.
