10Mila i natt

I natt är det tiomila så jag sitter och lyssnar lite på Radio 10mila nu innan det är dags att sova. Man blir ju sugen att springa när man hör dom rapportera från tävlingscentrum och ute i från skogen men jag är inte direkt i tillräckligt bra form längre. Dock var det grymt kul, fast jobbigt, att springa sista sträckan på 25-manna i höstas.

Godnatt!

No work today!

Because it’s easter we only had a half-working day today Thursday, and naturally me not being a morning person I decided those hours are better spent at home sleeping. So that I did and I woke just about an hour ago. Quite nice 🙂

Today I’m starting my practise for the Vienna Marathon relay by going out running for like an hour in the afternoon. Let’s see how that feels.

Back in business

Alright, I’m back from Prague and I’ve got a few days of vacation left which I’m spending at home just lazying around. Quite nice 🙂

The day we didn’t leave for Prague

Today me and my girlfriend were supposed to go to Prague for a relaxing week of vacation but due to heavy snowfall we didn’t make it. To quote Radio Praha:

Prague’s Ruzyne airport was closed to all incoming and outgoing traffic for most of the day on Sunday due to heavy snowfall. It re-opened for limited service after 3pm CET. Some 25 centimetres /10 inches/ of snow blanketed the country in the early hours of Sunday causing traffic snarls and train delays. Continuing snowfall throughout the day complicated road maintenance work. The main east-west motorway, the D1, was restricted to one lane in each direction and some parts of the country were completely cut off. More snow has been forecast in the coming days.

So we ended up having to return home again from the airport and we’ll give it another try tomorrow. Quite frustrating really as we’ve been looking forward to get a way from a few days and get to see some new scenary.

Sorry to bother you all with it but I just had to get it out of my system.

The weather hasn’t been nice to me this week, on Tuesday I missed my connection from Chicago back to Stockholm (via Copenhagen) due to snow in Chicago so I had to stay over the night in Chicago and got home a day late from Las Vegas. And now this today. Grrrrr. Please someone make it summer already.

Selenium

Selenium is a

test tool for web applications. Selenium tests run directly in a browser, just as real users do. And they run in Internet Explorer, Mozilla and Firefox on Windows, Linux, and Macintosh. No other test tool covers such a wide array of platforms.

Looks like ThoughtWorks have created something quite useful.

Caucho Resin adds PHP

TheServerSide.com writes:

Caucho, the company behind the open source application server Resin and the open Web Services protocols Burlap and Hessian, has recently added PHP to its list of supported features. Apparently, the PHP pages are compiled in the background to byte-code, and the resulting performance is six times that of Apache mod_php!

Resin has always been one of the sweetest application servers and now it got even better and more attractive.

Javascripts effects library

script.aculo.us version 1.5.0 was released yesterday. One can do quite fancy stuff with that library. However, it does come with an increased total file size for the web site. So alternatives have been popping up like moo.fx which aims to be a “superlightweight, ultratiny, megasmall javascript effects library” to quote the home page:

moo.fx is not a replacement for script.aculo.us or other effects libraries. It’s just a little alternative for people (like me) that do not need more than just simple, basic effects (and want to keep their filesize small).

I haven’t played with moo.fx yet but I plan to get around to it soon.
