ART Day Out – In Real Life

Henriette Weber Andersen of Toothless Tiger has been at it again – once she starts there ain’t no stoppin’.

So I’ve signed up for the first Art Day Out, I hope that that fact, will not discourage any of you ūüėČ

Ses vi? Det tror jeg NOK vi g√łr!

The first ART Day Out is taking place on sunday the 29nd of April 2007.

ART day out is for anyone who thinks that culture is cool *s* – and can basically evolve around anything anyway the first Art Day Out is going something like this:

we are meeting at n√łrreport station in Copenhagen 10.00 and heading north to find a place to brunch ( depends of the number of people signing up where the place is going to be) – around 13.00 we are going to Louisiana, Humleb√¶k to see the Cindy Sherman” and “made in China” exhibition.

Automonotoni – ‘Ungeren’ er en id√©

Friday, January 26th, 2007

Der er opr√łr i Danmark. Det skyldes at en r√¶kke unge – og “lidt” √¶ldre – mener at de fortsat skal have adgang til en bygning der blev stillet til r√•dighed af K√łbehavns Kommune i begyndelsen af 80erne. Takken til politikerne var dengang BUKSEVAND (seri√łst Egon Weidekamp fik BUKSEVAND).

Nu st√•r politikerne og velmenende aldrende sympatis√łrer med dybe lommer i k√ł for at skaffe et alternativt sted, fordi de har solgt huset til nogle mennesker der HADER ideer.

Kære automonotome:
‘Ungeren’…Er en id√©! IKKE et hus!
Deltag dog i det “mindst d√•rlige” demokrati i verden – HEY DET ER “VORES” – lav frivilligt arbejde, start foreninger, “indfiltrer” forvaltningnen der er ret vindunderlige mennesker (ja’ ve’ d’ ja’ har set d’).

I f√•r faktisk lov til at passe jer selv, og jeg gl√¶der mig til at se FLERE af jer f.eks. i min frivilliggruppe, Netv√¶rksgruppen i Mj√łlnerparken, nogle af jer har faktisk allerede fundet vej.

Huse er KONTROL mekanismer! Og det mest t√•belige ville da v√¶re hvis Ruth og hendes fundamentalistiske sl√¶ng fik deres kamp mod frit√¶nkning og ideer finansieret af “Halal hippier”.

Og s√• m√• vi ikke glemme at Jagtvej 69 var et af de steder en af de vigtigeste projekter i menneskeheden var med til at blive startet, “Kvindebev√¶gelsen”. Men huset der st√•r der, er ikke et v√¶rdigt monument for kvindebev√¶gelsen. S√• riv huset ned, hey det er “os selv” det har misligeholdt det s√• det er ved at falde sammen, og byg et passende monument til kvinden og kvindesagen i stedet!

Huse kan dog v√¶re n√łdvendige: Det var alts√• p√¶nt syret at se Bj√∂rk til Oscar festen for et par √•r siden, specielt n√•r jeg t√¶nker p√• hvor jeg s√• hende f√łrste gang: I ‘Ungeren’, da hun var 16 og med i KUKL!

Apple Computer Inc R.I.P

Tuesday, January 9th, 2007

Apple Computer Inc is no more.

Apple believes that the puck is moving, and Steve Jobs thinks that Apple is the Wayne Gretsky of the ICT industry – he might be right.

Quote from the MacWorld San Francisco 2007 keynote on the 9th of January 2007:

“There’s an old Wayne Gretsky quote I love — ‘I skate to where the puck is going to be, not to where it’s been.’ That’s what we try to do at Apple”

BTW…This is quote from what I wrote in September of 2006 after the special event presentation (from Kim Bach . Org: Apple Consumer Corporation – now commenting on unreleased products?:
The new products, and a Steve Jobs looking a little more enthusiastic than during the WWDC Keynote, made me wonder if Apple should change it’s name to Apple Consumer Corporation. Apple: I need a sub-note book with record breaking long battery life, PLEASE remain a Computer company.

And one more thing: The new Apple Inc. WILL be commenting on unreleased products, who’s copying who now?

Live from Macworld 2007: Steve Jobs keynote – Engadget
“People who are really serious about software should make their own hardware.”

Yes, Steve Jobs was quoting Alan Kay, my hero, when he announced the iPhone – the next generation mobile communications device.

WriteRoom | Hog Bay Software РWordPerfect déjà-vu

Tuesday, January 9th, 2007

WriteRoom | Hog Bay Software

While browsing the weblog of Emme, I stumbled upon the minimalistic word processor WriteRoom.

From the description on the website:

For Mac users who enjoy the simplicity of a typewriter, but live in the digital world. WriteRoom is a full-screen, distraction-free writing environment. Unlike the cluttered word processors you’re used to, WriteRoom is just about you and your text. Requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later.

And it’s available for Windows as well. I think it’s a bit pricey at $24,95, and maybe it’s too minimalistic, but it sort of makes you miss WordPerfect 5.

Here’s an idea – I’d like a minimalistic word-processor like that, but it should understand wiki markup, parse it dynamically and have the ability to sync with wiki sites.

You know I fell partly responsible for the killing of WordPerfect. I remember clearly the first time I saw WordPerfect, it was version 3.3 and the company wasn’t called WordPerfect Corp. yet, but Satellite Software.

The uncluttered screen, showing only a line and column indicator, at that point in time the fashion was so called Lotus style menus, cascaded menus on the bottom, was so fresh, and I loved it, especially since you only had a screen that showed 80 characters and 25 lines.

But no, I wanted easy access to the advanced functions, and I loved WYSIWYG. But WYSIWYG has only brought us complicated UIs and mandatory education, in order to learn something as simple as writing on a computer, and since we’re no longer crating content, primarily for printing, we could do away with the paper metaphor when writing on a computer, at least if it’s creative writing.

But seriously, WordPerfect 5 running on a modern Mac, is complete overkill.

WordPerfect 5 ran PERFECTLY from one floppy under DOS 2.11 on the great sub-notebook Compaq/LTE in…1989!
So much for rapid progress…

ps. Hey…The One Laptop Per Child looks like the Compaq/LTE.

JOSBLOG Live! ¬Ľ Gallery Manager at last.

Cool tip from my old friend Jose C. of Orange/Telia fame.

He’s using a plug-in, called CoppermineSC, to integrate WordPress and Coppermine.

I use WordPress, I use Coppermine, but I’m switching to Flickr for my public photos, and I will continue to use .Mac and iWeb for private photos.

Drupal – Incompatible environment

Sunday, January 7th, 2007

If you get this error from Drupal:

Incompatible environment

The following error must be resolved before you can continue the installation process:

Multibyte string input conversion in PHP is active and must be disabled. Check the php.ini mbstring.http_input setting. Please refer to the PHP mbstring documentation for more information. (Currently using Unicode library Error)

It can be fixed by adding the following lines to your settings.php file in the PHP settings section:

/* PHP.ini overrides */
ini_set('mbstring.http_input', 'pass');
ini_set('mbstring.http_output', 'pass');

Thank you to Henrik for fixing this for me, Surftown accounts need this setting in order for Drupal 5 to work.

:: macnyt :: danmark ::

Hmm…Efter et par m√•neders pause fra Macnyt har jeg taget lidt revanche og konverteret den til min personlige blog – IGEN ;-).

Dette skyldtes at der faktisk var et par interessante tråde, som HELT sikkert irriterer nogle, og helt sikkert er HAMRENDE off-topic, men det er jo NETOP det jeg ELSKER ved Macnyt.

And on that note: We cue the music!!!!

Julens 12te dag

Sunday, January 7th, 2007

Julen slutter som bekendt den 6-1, på Hellig Tre Kongers Dag, Julens 12te dag.

P√• julens f√łrste dag giver elskeren en agerh√łne i et p√¶retr√¶, p√• den anden er det to turtelduer, men hvad er det nu det er p√• den 12te,
12?…

Jo det er 12 trommespillere….trommespillende trommespillere none the less!

Og i f√łlge denne side http://www.carols.org.uk/the_twe1ve_days_of_christmas.htm, referer det til apostlenes 12 gerninger/l√łfter.

Det er jo dybt, dybt! spirituelt det der…Det SJOVE er at det er Anders And bladet der har givet mig det klareste billede af den “julesalme” (det der hedder en “Christmas Carol” p√• Engelsk).

Appropos Julen:
Hvert √•r foresl√•r jeg til jul at vi synger “Dejlig er den himmelbl√•”, det er den salme jeg ELSKER h√łjst i hele verdenen, i √•r ytrede jeg ikke det √łnske – selv om jeg BR√ÜNDENDE √łnskede det.

Jeg er n√łdt til at afs√łge mit sind for et svar…Hmm…Google og sindet i forening valgte dette link…http://www.dyhret.dk/Jul/Julesang03.htm, det var selvf√łlgelig det der havde musik, og nu har jeg t√•rer i √łjnene – og jeg kende godt svaret:

Julen betyder ogs√• uendeligt meget for mig, men lige nu er det dag 2 og 3, s√•dan i “Sinatra dom√¶net”, der optager mig, og der var jeg ikke komplet i √•r.

Kære Gud hvorfor sender du nu så klare signaler igen, og hvem tog det billede?

Elle existe Dieu?

ps. Fatter du ikke et muk? “Hellig Tre Kongers dag er min D√•bsdag”, hjalp det lidt? Nok ikke!

pps. Og da jeg trykker p√• send link p√• denne artikel…s√• v√¶lger FrontRow: “Den Himmelbl√•”? Stop stop stop…Jeg VED det er TILF√ÜDIGT! Jeg VED det!
