Previous year, during a trip of Sweden, Finland and Estonia I did with a friend, we also had our first steps in couch surfing with Sara in Tampere and Annika in Tallinn, both marvellous persons. But, as Annika was studying and living in a not-to-big city in Denmark, called Aalborg and we had a couple of free days between New Year and the start of the working year, we decided to have a quick trip and visit her.

A while ago I listened randomly to When God Created the Coffeebreak by Esbjörn Svensson Trio's, a group previously unknown to me. Fascinated by the distinct playing, I decided to look up more of them, and stumbled upon this gem album.

View on youtube

The Esbjörn Svensson Trio, often abbreviated to e.s.t., emerged in 1993 and was active until 2008, when the pianist Esbjörn Svensson died in a scuba diving accident outside Stockholm. Main influences are Bartók and Radiohead.

Viaticum is the Eucharist that is administered to a dying person.

Just some corrections to [], and for further reference to myself.

cd /usr/local/Library
git remote add kde
git fetch kde
git checkout kde_on_brew/master

# gives an error
brew search okular
# however, this works
brew install okular

# After you've installed your stuff
git checkout master

Thanks, Nick Shobe :)

One night I got really adventurous on "Tuxedo Junction" and I put in a little "ping!" you know, that wasn't written, and this was such an experience! To make music that wasn't indicated. That really got me into starting to want to think about how to make the music.

After traveling, I usually have a large collection of photos. To make life a bit more easy, I organize my pictures in collections, with tags.

So far I had done this organizing manually, until I got fed up with it, and created picview.


I had written a blog post here, but then decided it would be better to write a static project page, and refer you to that page from here :)

So, please view picview page for more details!

James Chapman drew some pictures of what sounds animals make in various languages.

A while ago, the google search page used to have a link in the google bar (that bar at the top) which included a link to perform the current search on Then, it suddenly disappeared, which annoyed me quite a bit, as I often just typed my query in google, even though I wanted the scholar one.

So, I just finished a little userscript that just does this: insert a link to google scholar.

It should work in

I will keep this script updated as the google homepage changes (last update: 30th of March 2016)

Just returned from Pukkelpop 2013. I note here, for further possible reference, all bands I've seen in full, or partly. Maybe later I'll add some small reviews, or something.


This is the fifth part of my travels in Czech Republic. The bus took me here from [Brno](/2013/08/10/czech-brno ).

Going from České Budějovice to Český Krumlov proved to be easy as pie, and soon I found myself in Český Krumlov.

Český Krumlov entrance

My hostel, just next to the entrance :)

Český Krumlov is situated along the Vltava river, and is mainly known for its beautifull inner town and castle.

It came into existence in the 13th century and grew around the castle, and features Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque elements. Because of the well preservedness for over five centuries, and its typicalness for a small central European medieval town, it's enlisted in the UNESCO World Heritage List.

As I left the bus, I had no idea yet where to sleep, but just entering the pueblito there was already hostel 99 seeking my attention with it's cosy interior and fair price. I got myself a bed in the roof and started exploring the city!
