17/8 – Job

I was suppose to wakeup at ten. I guess that didn’t happen. I wasn’t out of my bed before twelve. One of the reasons is that i have to prepare for school. Waking up earlier and earlier each day. The other was that i was going to help Bergersen with his/our web page. I talked with him, explaining that i overslept. We arranged a meeting at Shell, a gas station 200 m from my house.  I just had to take a shower first. We ordered an account for the web page. Someday I’m getting my own server, but not yet. Then we just talked waiting for a response from them. He was going to the movies with his girlfriend today, and I had to work. At ten to five my dad drove me to Varingskollen. We were there precisely at ten. It’s another gas station.  I helped to people today with road directions. Me actually, I am really bad in geography. Hopefully it helped. I caught a ride with my boss home. I met my parents in the driveway. They had been to a movie. The new one called “Knocked up”. It is about a 40 year old virgin getting someone knocked up. I’d like to see it, but i haven’t got the time. The whole family watched a episode together their on the second one and I’m on the fifth. Hopefully they can catch up with me. I won’t watch before they do, even though i cant wait. So long…

15/8 – Track & Field

My old track and field coach asked me if I could represent the local team in a competition in Kristiansand in some weeks. It’s me and 3 others that are running 1000 m. It’s split up in 100, 200, 300 and 400 m. My job is to run 100 m. (^^, ) I accepted so today was my first practice. Unfortunately only the daughter of the coach and I showed up. The others were probably scared of the weather. There had been a lot of dark clouds in the sky this morning. We practice outside too. I started with some warm-ups by running around and then some stretching. Then i needed to refresh my memory of how to start. We started with learning how to set it up. When I am going to compete i have to do this all by my self. After that i got some pointers on my starting positions. You know when he says: “Ready” “Set” “Go”. He said i did pretty well for it being so long ago since i did this. Then we just practiced running a couple of times. That was it for the day and we finished with stretching. Luckily i caught a ride with the coach home.
When i got home, i had to struggle with the newsletter for Cafe TID. I have designed the newsletter in HTML and Outlook won’t accept it. I guess it’s for security reasons. So i downloaded a Shareware where i could manipulate the source code. It worked very well for the first newsletter but it wouldn’t work for this one now. It might be because you have to pay after you send 3 mails or something, and i used them all on testing the first one. Around eleven i got a “light bulb” idea. I only needed the HTML code for the design, and that i already have from the first one. So i replaced the text and it worked. Finally it was sent and i could stop worrying about it. Then it was time for one more thrilling episode of Heroes!

Heroes

After watching a few episodes last night i actually fell in love with the series. It’s not usually i like a TV series like this. The only other might be “The Family Guy” and the first season of “24”. I can’t wait to get a hold of the next episodes. What i love about it are the extreme cliffhangers and the ingenious storyline. I love sci-fi that has a tendency to “might be possible”. But usually when i watch series i lose interest after the first season. So lets see what happens here when i finish the first one. Underneath is the introduction from NBC’s page for those that don’t know that this is. I highly recommend that you watch the first episode so see if this is something for you too.

“From creator/writer Tim Kring (NBC’s “Crossing Jordan”) comes “Heroes,” an epic drama that chronicles the lives of ordinary people who discover they possess extraordinary abilities.

As a total eclipse casts its shadow across the globe, a genetics professor (Sendhil Ramamurthy, “Blind Guy Driving”) in India is led by father’s disappearance to uncover a secret theory — there are people with super powers living among us. A young dreamer (Milo Ventimiglia, “Gilmore Girls”) tries to convince his politician brother (Adrian Pasdar, “Judging Amy”) that he can fly. A high school cheerleader (Hayden Panettiere, “Ice Princess”) learns that she is totally indestructible. A Las Vegas stripper (Ali Larter, “Final Destination”), struggling to make ends meet to support her young son (Noah Gray-Cabey, “My Wife & Kids”), discovers that her mirror image has a secret. A fugitive from justice (Leonard Roberts, “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”) continues to baffle authorities who twice have been unable to contain him. A gifted artist (Santiago Cabrera, “Empire”), whose drug addiction is destroying his life and relationship with his girlfriend (Tawny Cypress, NBC’s “Third Watch”), can paint the future. A down-on-his-luck Los Angeles beat cop (Greg Grunberg, “Alias”) can hear people’s thoughts, which puts him on the trail of an elusive serial killer. In Japan, a young man (Masi Oka, NBC’s “Scrubs”) develops a way to stop time through sheer will power. Their ultimate destiny is nothing less than saving the world…”

13/8 – Newsletter

Today i used most of the day trying to figure out how to send a newsletter. Well it more complicated than it sounds. It’s for a local cafe shop. A very down to earth place. It’s called “Cafe TID“. TID meaning time. They have a saying that’s like this: take a break in your life and relax with a cup of coffee. Many coffee houses does this but there is something special with this one. All the clocks in the shop are still. It’s just a big pause, anyway, now I’m rambling. I was trying to send the Newsletter, but it got really annoying when i found out that Office can’t send HTML coded e-mails. I guess it’s because of some security or something. That causes a lot of problems since i have coded a very nice newsletter in HTML. After a couple of hours i finally found a way. I found a shareware that you could edit the source code with. But with this program cam along another problem. When you send a mail with their program there is an add at the bottom of the e-mail. But luckily this was no biggie. I just sent it to my mail and forwarded it to the about 200 contacts. I’m very proud of that one, even though it was a fairly simple design. I might post it here sometime, but not now.
For dinner we had lamb chops. They were very good. The chef had done an excellent job (If you didn’t catch that it was me how made them :P). Then it was off too work. Working from 5 til 10 at a gas station. Not much to say about it. It’s work. But i managed. I just started for a couple of weeks ago. Today a sat a new record. Both breaking even in the registry and being out of the building with the alarm on just 5 past. It can’t be done better 😀
Then when a cam i have just been surfing the web. After this blog I’m going to watch the first episode of Heroes. A good friend recomended it and from what i have read it sounds very intresting. Vell wish me good luck 😛

Yours truly,

Anders
