To paraphrase: It’s been swell, but the swelling is gone. This week has been a non stop buffet of puzzles for the brain, where one of the larger were how to get my freakin’ Cyrus-IMAP/Sendmail server going. It’s has been a struggle from the very beginning and about 2 minutes ago I solved it! It’s a nice feeling, but there is probably a lot to look out for in the mail logs.
To sum this week up so far:
- Monday: late laboratory untill 19:15. 19:30 throw myself into a taxi to go to Bishops Arms in downtown Luleå. There meet up with two of my closes friends for dinner and have a beer or two. 23:00 realize that I’m drunk on a monday…
- Tuesday:Â A disoriented lab, and some generally confused statments…
- Wensday: A “name of the day”-dinner in my honnor. As this Wensday was valentines day, and my full name is Linus Sebastian Valentin Lejon Isaksson this had to be celebrated. A nice dinner with my friend Ewe and her friend Milla (Mikka on the T9 sms).
- Thursday, early lab and then batteling it out with Sendmail. Spent the entire day on the console….
So that’s my week so far. Need to get some sleep soon as I have another early lab tomorrow, and this time we can do the analysis of the material as the equipment is complete again.
Today, I have had a good sunday. It was quite some time ago since I had one of these. Me and one of my best friends Stina went to Wayne’s Coffe and talked about nothing important for 1,5 hours. Also another one of my friends if flying back to LuleåÂ for a week long visit.Â Will be fun to have the “old gang of 3 back” together. The “Gang” is
- Stina the Cat
- Ewe the Frog
- Linus the Bear (me…)
Hopefully the packages my father sent me about 2 weeks ago will arrive this week, so we can play all the board games that I “rescued” from my parents collection.
I was shown a link (http://www.stefandidak.com/office/)Â and man! What a sweet setup. Suddenly I feel the urge to go out and buy some more computer equipment, though I have no money to pay for it… I just have to settle down and enjoy the dual screen that I do have.
Well, back to correcting lab reports.
So it’s has been some time now between blogposts.
This week has ben quite a buissy one, with a mineral technical conferance tusday and wensday including a banquette. For future reference on these thing, event if it’s free booze it’s not mandatory to drink it. A lesson I don’t get, eventhough I have had many oppertunities to remember it. The conferance was the last one in one of the old professor of the mineral department. Prof. Erik Forssberg is retireing and I wish I had just a small fraction of his knowledge about mineral processing then I would quadruple my current knowledge about mineral processing.
As usual every time I get close to a few hundred new people, I get sick afterwards. This happens every time!!! I’m quite sick of being sick…
My first lab reports to correct have been handed to me, and I have some big problems keeping the “evil gene” in check. Hopefully they won’t think I’m to hard on them, but it’s a wakeup call for me as to the knowledge I do posses.
Also I have started a new department (to affiliated to any university yet), it’s the:
Department of insane application of technology and doubius research
Current employee’s so far is me as head of department. First order of buissnes is to hire a secretary, as all departments need this. To apply just post a comment 😉
Currently I don’t have a logo or buissnesÂ cards, but all in due time.
Now it’s time to get some tea and slip into the foggy sleep that will be interrupted at 06:30 tomorrow for me to do some laundry…
Well. The week is over and depending how you count the shift of the days between Saturday /Sunday, I’m writing this on a Saturday. It’s not Sunday until you have gone to bed, and woken up somewhat relaxed (nightly toilet breaks do not count).
Me and a friend went to see the new student pub tonight, and it was a strange experience. The pub / nightclub looks like a school cafeteria, with two bars in the distant and some tables in-between. I took some pictures, but not that great that I want to upload them. Will have to go back there during the day to take some good shots.
- Time to wait in line for me: 2 minutes
- Time to wait in line for students: 45min -> 1 hour (it’s good to be a VIP)
- Time before a table broke: 2,5 hours.
- Number of fire alarms that works: 0 (somewhat of a problem I think…)
- People I recognize: 20 (out of 800, is this what it’s like to be getting old???)
Also I have booked me a flight away from here to visit a friend in Norrtälje ( X km north of Stockholm). I usually think Norrköping, but that’s just wrong… So for the 17:th to the 23:rd of March I’m having a vacation! It’s going to be nice to be able to spend some time someplace that’s not here.
Tomorrow (today according to the time stamp on this post), I will start the day at 7am (07:00) with some laundry, then at least 2 hours at the gym. Some sleep and at 11pm (23:00) I will go to one of my friends flat and watch the “unknown number” Super bowl. I will have to learn some rules for American football before that so I know what is happening.
