One of my co-workers (Fredrik Karlsson) just sent me an 41MB email !!!! Can you image a professional in the computer science business sending that large emails 🙁 Had to wait for 1.5 minutes for my inbox to open. Hrrmrmrmrrrrmrmrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. The email was a bunch of presentations from a research meeting we had last week (my Umeå trip) but also all the digital photos they took there. WWW is a working medium, even the press have known that since around 1995 when they invented the Internet (I wonder what I was using before that?).
That feels better. Now of to bed to read some Tom Clancy, Executive Orders (more about that tomorrow!!)

I have now done my first online real voting (not the normal online voting stuff) but a real political issue! The question was if the central street down town should be for busses only (for all Americans, the kind of vehicle that more than person rides at a time 😉 or for busses and cars. I obviously voted for the former (not having either drivers license or car). I have actually voted twice tonight. Johanna was to lazy to do it herself!
As of 22.26 tonight I am no longer an online voting virgin.
As some of my dear readers might have noticed I am very fond of human powered vehicles and I just got a mail about a Human Powered Bus! Check it out! Note the small numbers at the bottom of the page with links to more images of the bus!
Tovah learning how to cycle on Johanna’s Flevo Trike (we sold it last year though so I guess she will never learn to ride it). Click the image for a larger view. More Flevo photos.
I just saw a really funny movie! See it or miss something really fun 🙂 Interstate 60 with James Marsden, Gary Oldman, Michael J Fox, Chris Cooper and many more! Just see it!
I just read an old paper (1992-93) entitled “Why Do Users Like Video? Studies of Multimedia-Supported Collaboration” by John C. Tang and Ellen Isaacs. The paper is long paper and reports on an investigation they did within SUN regarding different video conferencing solutions. They write many good points but one thing really stood out:
“Rather, we should strive to understand how new forms of interaction can be integrated with the existing ones into people’s day-to-day work”
Too much research in this area today is done on the technical details underneath ( that is what I got my PhD in!).
Mikael Drugge wrote this small poem…
“The Wheel of Time turns, and Revisions come and go.
What was, what will be published, and what is PA7,
may yet fall under the Reviewers.”

Ever wanted to know what it feels like not having any sex (and I mean ANY 😉 for 40 days and 40 nights? Then see this movie:
It is one of the funniest movies I have seen in a long time!
