  • Blog Post: Rubriksättning

    Jag är fascinerad av rubriker på Aftonbladet.se*. I synnerhet hur tankstreck används för att tydliggöra exakt vad det är jag borde vara upprörd över. Idag ser jag: "Slog ihjäl 21 sälar - med träpåle". 21 sälar, det är ju fruktansvärt! Men vänta, vad spelar det för roll att just en träpåle användes...
  • Blog Post: Babyface

    You know you don't look (or act?) your age (31) when you get carded buying non-alcoholic beer. I've never been this upset.
  • Blog Post: My latest pet peeve

    It seems that absolutely everyone at Microsoft feels that they need to keep me informed about what they're up to. Why else would I get dozens of newsletters and status reports every week, from all kinds of teams and people, about all sorts of projects and products? As much as I appreciate the opportunity...
  • Blog Post: Svämövning

    Det finns en flod mellan den by där jag bor och Redmond där Microsoft finns. För en vecka sen var floden c:a 15 meter djup, vilket i sig är ganska högt. Idag är den tjugo meter djup. För en vecka sen var flödeshastigheten 1 700 kubikfot per sekund. Idag är det närmare 60 000 kubikfot per sekund*. Hela...
  • Blog Post: Överlokalisering

    Man kom la in runt åttasnåret på möran, som vanligt. Tar å kolla buggstatus och märker att kollegan i Stockholm (han kommer ursprungligen från Mölndal*) lagt in en bugg. Buggens rubrik är Dialectal style of writing in New Taskpad View Wizard , och i buggen står det Dialectal expresssion "denna verktygspaletten...
  • Blog Post: Interviewing candidates

    One thing I really like about my job is that every now and again I'm given the opportunity to interview a potential new hire. Yup, me - your average localizer - is asked to give my opinion on a decision that can huge impact on the future of both my group and Microsoft as a whole. Interviewing people...
  • Blog Post: Over the hill

    What do you get around here when you turn 30? A big surprise, that's what. I came in this morning, saw some small Swedish flags hanging from the ceiling in the corridor outside my office, and knew that something was up. Turns out my friends here at work came in late last night and built a bar in my...
  • Blog Post: Sleepless in Kirkland

    I don't know why, but this spring I had the bright idea to go back to college. No real reason, I just felt like learning something, and I figured if I'm going to learn anything I might as well make sure there's something in it for me. Like a degree. Clever me applied to an online CS program at a Swedish...
  • Blog Post: What's been up

    Yeah, I haven't really posted much for a while. It's been a busy couple of months, both on and off work. I had a lot of visitors from Sweden this summer and I've also had some minor health issues, so blogging hasn't really been a priority. At work, I've been busy with Swedish Media Center 2005 and Windows...
  • Blog Post: Hardware review: Humanscale Whale Mouse

    For a few years, I was suffering slightly from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. This is self-diagnosed, of course, I never tried to get treatment for it. Can't go to the doctor for every little thing... Instead, I tried switching mouse-hand, but that only moved the problem between my hands. I used various support...
  • Blog Post: Bubble free

    I made it. One week ago , I challenged myself to one week without coffee, tea or fizzy drinks. By now, I'm officially decaffed and desugared. The full story is here ... Btw, Bazze, du är skyldig mig en öl. En Sort guld, tack. This posting is provided "AS IS" with no warranties, and confers no rights...
  • Blog Post: Bubbles

    It's Tuesday morning... let's see if I can stay off the soft drinks for a week. Oh, and no coffee either. This'll be interesting.
  • Blog Post: Well done DC!

    I've never been a fan of David Coulthard's, but I was geniunely pleased seeing how well he did and how solid Red Bull looked today - especially considering what a pitiful final race Jaguar had 2004. "My" team didn't score any points though (blame the weather), but hey, there's always the next race. Overall...
  • Blog Post: For our Portuguese friends...

    Here's something I just learned about; a Portuguese Discoveries Theme Pack for Windows XP. As the download page http://www.microsoft.com/globaldev/outreach/dnloads/discover-pt.mspx puts it: Show your pride in Portuguese culture! The Portugese Discoveries Theme Pack features wallpapers, icons, mouse pointers...
  • Blog Post: Krya på mig

    Jag har känt mig lite krasslig ett tag. I flera veckor, faktiskt. Det är delvis därför som jag knappt har tagit mig tid att blogga i år. Men man är la inte sjåpig, man kan la inte springa till doktorn för minsta lilla. Till slut lät jag dock frugan övertyga mig om att det är dags för en hälsoundersökning...
  • Blog Post: Gnälljeppe

    Asså kalla mig petig om du vill, men sånt här stör mig: En dialogruta: Samma dialogruta efter att du klicka på Information: 1) Varför växlar hotkey för Information när du klickar knappen? Väldigt störigt för icke-musare så som exempelvis Holmberg här. 2) Varför sitter hotkey på "Avbryt &aktivitet...
  • Blog Post: Help wanted

    My team is currently looking to hire two Software Localization Engineers, one for Arabic and one for Hebrew. Details about these positions are at http://www.microsoft.com/careers/search/details.aspx?JobID=a2417ed4-f182-4f44-9b49-3f6e409aa6be and http://www.microsoft.com/careers/search/details.aspx?JobID...
  • Blog Post: QuickTime fun

    Here's something I discovered this morning when working with a relative's machine. If your machine likes displaying the error message "There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive X:" (maybe with the title qttask) whenever you log in or you start Quick Time, here's one possible reason...
  • Blog Post: Slightly humbled

    My uncle is now the fire chief in his town. When he started his career a long time ago, at the Mölndal brandstation, he was also moonlighting as electrician. That wasn't the career he really wanted, but money was tight and since he had the training, he might as well use it. One day, his boss at the fire...
  • Blog Post: Hårdkodning

    Jag läste i Aftonbladet nu på morgonen om ett förslag på nytt trafikmärke för betalvägar. Artikeln finns på http://www.aftonbladet.se/vss/bil/story/0,2789,576428,00.html . Förslaget på det nya vägmärket är en blå fyrkant med en gul cirkel i mitten. Inuti den gula cirkeln står det "Kr", för att visa att...
  • Blog Post: Säkert eller?

    ...sen finns det vissa som skriver "ta det säkra före det osäkra". Vadå före? Menar de att man först väljer det säkra alternativet, och därefter går över till det alternativ man vet är osäkert? Stollar. Det ska givetvis heta "ta det säkra för det osäkra". Trots att man tror att något är säkert, agerar...
  • Blog Post: Changes are starting to pay off

    There was a reorg. Almost two years ago now. One of the changes in that reorg caused my move from Dublin to Redmond. Another meant that a team dedicated to marketization projects was formed in Dublin. Part of the idea with this team is to try and balance out the inherent US-centricness of some things...
  • Blog Post: This cracks me up

    As you may know, the main Microsoft campus is spread out over a number of different buildings. All buildings have a steady stream of visitors - maybe people from another building are visiting for a meeting, or a candidate comes for a job interview, or my wife is dropping by over lunch. For your convenience...
  • Blog Post: Myt: Engelsk Windows är säkrast eftersom säkerhetsfixar för svensk Windows alltid kommer sent

    Ibland hör jag att folk inte väljer lokaliserad Windows eftersom säkerhetsfixar kommer senare på svenska än på engelska. Det är inte sant. Det kanske var sant en gång i tiden, men det var länge sen. Som du säkert vet försöker Microsoft följa ett strikt schema för säkerhetsfixar. Normalt släpps fixarna...
  • Blog Post: Random randomness

    This summer I was looking to buy an MP3 player. I wanted something simple & cheap. My only requirements was that it would have a flash card slot and FM radio, and that it'd be small. The only place I was planning ot use it was at the gym. I ended up making an impulse purchase at costco and I got...
