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.

Boulder, Colorado

Published: Sunday 2007-12-09.

After having spent all of Saturday travelling, I woke up in Boulder, Colorado this morning. I am here to take a training course in SAS at Tandberg Data’s USA offices (formerly Exabyte).

I have been a bit negative about the concept of being treated like a criminal at immigration, with fingerprinting and photographing, but it went quite smoothly, smooth enough that we had to wait an hour to get our baggage afterwards. Other than that it doesn’t feel very different, it is a morning in December, the snow is falling and the temperature is a few degrees below freezing, I have bought a bigpack Coca Cola and the room TV has about seventy channels, without there being anything worth watching.

Förutom fingeravtrycken, låter det nästan som du bordat en Ålandskryssning. :-) Där brukar det stå en fotograf och tar kort på alla påstigande i farten, och så får man köpa loss bilden senare om man vill. Det erbjudandet kanske inte de amerikanska gränsmyndigheterna ger ännu, mest för att ingen tänkt på det?

Man får ju hoppas att du får en trevlig vistelse nu när du/ni missade vår 40-årsskiva. Vi hade en bra sammankomst och jag får trösta mig med att jag hoppas få träffa er vid senare tillfälle istället. Ha det, mannen.

Ja, det var dumt, hade sett fram emot festen, men så krockade det med resan :-( Nästa gång ni fyller 40 lovar jag att vara där :-)
