Earlier this week my hard working graduate students submitted three new papers for review.
Experiences from Mobile e-Meetings with the Borderland Wearable Computer by Mikael Drugge, Marcus Nilsson, Johan Kristiansson, and Peter Parnes
Mobility support for Collaborative Real-time Applications by Johan Kristiansson, and Peter Parnes
User-interest Driven Video Adaptation for Collaborative Workspace Applications by Jeremiah Scholl, Stefan Elf, and Peter Parnes
It was also decided that Jeremiah Scholl and Stefan Elf will present their licentiate theses on June 6, 2003! Woohoo! I’ll see if I can approve them (being the examiner :-).
I am proud of you all!
At 18.07 this evening it will be 7 years since me and Johanna got married! Woohoo!
Time flies then you die!
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.
My most fun memory of Tovah is when one of the program leaders of the Bollibompa children show was pregnant and they had spent the whole episode discussing how babies were made. After the show I sat down in front of the TV to catch the news and Tovah comes up to me, stands there contemplating for a while, lifts my shirt and “titta pappa barn” meaning “watch daddy baby”. Hmm, do I have that large stomach? Tovah was 27 months at the time (autumn 2002).
Yesterday was the 12 year anniversary of me and Johanna getting together!! Woohoo! And we both forgot about it as usual 🙂 Hopefully I won’t forget about our wedding anniversary April 2 1996.
Why would anyone in the world e.g. buy 32 Gillette blades or 9 Braun Oral-B brush heads? Well, that is what my wife do for fun, and it is about half price against shelf price in Sweden, even with shipping from US. She must be really bored, I better take her to bed then 😉
My mother just invited herself. She is coming up April 19-23. Easter time. Oh well….
I just got back from this years first bicycle training. I cycled about 10 Km (my cycle computer has ran out of batteries during the winter) to Lulsundet and back. Puuuh.
After 2 years break, Johanna got our Quicken database up and running again so now we know how much money we have. This for both good and bad as it shows how much several of stock-funds have decreased in value 🙁 The worst is now worth 12.5% of the money we put in 🙁
