Birthday, kinda…

yesterday (not really)! It’s not seven years and one day since I first launched this blog! I’m pretty amazed and proud that I’ve manage to keep this project going for seven years. I haven’t managed to post every week (or every day as my first plan was to), but nearly every month, just missing July in 2011 and April in 2014. That is not bad.

I’m not that big of celebrating these blogdays, as I’ve only remembered it three times. First was of course in 2008, the first year, then again in 2009, and last time was in 2011, when I was, as today, one day late.

…so…yeah. I kinda got distracted working on a graph over all the posts over the years, because I wanted it to update live using some PHP and Javascript. Then it started to snow and I wanted to drive my RC car before going to bed.

So that is why this post is not longer…

PS: I’ll post some images from my car covered in snow tomorrow.

Forgotten birthday…

It’s four years ago since I’ve started this blog, and this fall have been the slowest of them all. And it’s the second time I forget my blog’s birthday. I even planned last week that I should write something clever to show that I still watch over it, but since I had my last two exams this week, I forgot all about it. University at master’s level (they went well).

Other then school I’ve been busy working on a new Android application. This time I’m trying to make a game. So for the last week I’ve been working on the internal/core of the game. It’s called “Space Settlers” and it’s about discovering new planets and gathering resources and points to beat the other players. You can also fight the other players with different monsters. Hopefully I’ll be able to make a more friendlier UI (now it’s all text) this coming week.

Picture time!

I forgot to tell you all what I got from my girlfriend as a birthday present. A Xbox 360 S! How cool isn’t that?! There is a small story of how I ended up with that. As some may know, my birthday is the 9th. So when we got home from my cabin, I got a medium sized gift-wrapped box which I could open before next Sunday. How boring isn’t that? So I had to wait, finally night of Sunday I was allowed to open it. As I had no idea what it was, I was quiet shocked that it was two bags of 1-2-3 cake. Then she laughed and handed my another gift. I tried to shake it a bit, and I guessed that it maybe was Lego (that would be so much better then what I got). It wasn’t, it was confectionery, which is my idea of a booooring gift. Luckily this is an intern joke, so she laughed again and went to get a big present! I had no idea what is was before I opened it, and I was speechless. One of best present I’ve ever received.

Here some pictures I took of it after I put it up. It got dusty real quick. There is also some pictures of my bottle/can collection.
