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.

  I?m name removed from InTopic Media, the in-text logo company. I really like your site!!! I know that you?re really busy but I need to speak with you. Is there a good time for me to schedule a call? We just received some amazing advertisers in your vertical and I know that they will convert great on your site. InTopic is in-text advertising that integrates with your present ad network. It?s basically additional revenue for you.<removed>

  Can you let me know a good time to call because I think your site is awesome! Just give me a time and I?ll move my other appointments around. I look forward to hearing from you.

Well, two weeks after your, or my, death, whichever comes first, is a good time to call. Stupid spammer.
