Jag såg just första avsnittet på säsong två av ”House of Cards”. Oj, oj, oj, nu händer det grejor. Vill sträckse resten direkt.

What happens at bokmässan borde stanna på bokmässan, för oss andras skull. Vi skiter i era tramsiga kulturbråk!

Jag kör genom Sundborn när solen går ner, sjunger för full halls med i ”Where the Streets Have No Name” och känner att jag hittat hem.

Installerade just iOS 9 och det första jag gjorde sen var att skaffa en ”Content Blocker” för Safari. Wow, Aftonbladet är snabb utan reklam!

I wonder if my old, slooooow, iPad mini (1st gen) might actually benefit speed-wise from iOS 9, since I can then run ad blockers?

I’ve been fiddling around with my Nintendo 3DS today, not really playing any games but more like doing maintenance. I finally crawled a Nintendo Networj ID and linked my 3DS to that. Not quite sure about every possible ups and downs of that but at least now I can download free content from the eShop (demoes, game updates, etc.). 

The ”app store” and social networking parts of Nintendo is really confusing! For instance, why is my Nintendo Club ID and my Nintendo Network ID two separate things? Since they both use the same email and username, are they actually one and the same now?

And why, oh why, can I only download things either in the foreground and thereby blocking all access to other things during the download, or in the background while the 3DS is in sleep mode. Why is there no regular background downloading?

And what happens when I fill up my SD card? From what I’ve gathered online, changing SD card in a 3DS is not a smooth process.

Idag firar Linn och jag 12 år som par. Eftersom vi båda är rejält förkylda så firar vi genom att slöa i soffan, titta på ”Modern Family”, gosa med Iris, slösurfa och spela 3DS (jag spelar 3DS, inte Linn).

Vem kunde för tolv år sedan tro att vi idag skulle bo i en annan stad än den vi växte upp i, vara förlovade, ha ett underbart barn tillsammans och precis ha börjat processen med att bygga vårt drömhus.

Skål för nästkommande tolv år!

Det är alltid lika kul när mediemänniskor från Stockholm beklagar sig över att fler människor vill flytta till Stockholm.

För 10-15 år sedan enades vi om att det var en dålig idé att lägga upp bilder av text, istället för faktisk text, på nätet.

Hörni oppositionen, om ”följ reglerna” är Löfvens enda svar på flyktingkatastrofen så är det dags att ni river upp DÖ och fäller regeringen.

Då är frågan om jag känner två andra som också kommer köpa ”Tri Force Heroes” och vill spela co-op eller om det är single player som gäller.

Och det finns inga ord för hur vidriga människorna, opinionsbildarna och politikerna som arbetar för att stänga gränserna är.

Förra helgen gifte sig mina vänner Bella och Jonas. Ceremonin och bröllopsmiddagen hölls på Sätra Brunn i närheten av Sala. Det var ett vackert bröllop och en väldigt trevlig fest. Jag tog många bilder under festen och lade upp två stycken på Instagram och som ”Snapshots” här på bloggen.

Här är ytterligare några av bilderna som jag tog. Det här är de som jag tycker var de allra bästa från själva ceremonin.

Tack Bella och Jonas för att vi fick komma på ert fina bröllop och lycka till med ert liv som gift par.

Idag har varit min första dag som föräldraledig. Under september och oktober kommer Linn och jag vara hemma tillsammans och ta hand om Iris. Det ska bli väldigt roligt och jag har sett fram emot det länge.

Idag har Iris sovit väldigt mycket, troligen för att hon har en andra tand på gång. Vi får se vad morgondagen för med sig.

Today I’ve extended my checklist for a ”Perfect Round” from an earlier post. The checkmarks mark the things I’ve done in this, my current play-through.

People to help

  • Anju and Kafei
  • Save Romani from the cow-sucking space aliens.
  • Protect Cremia(?), Romani’s sister, on her route to Clocktown.
  • Complete the full trading of Business Scrubs’ trading lots.
  • Protect the old lady carrying bombs through North Clock Town at night.
  • Help the girl whose dad’s been turned into a Gibdo by removing the spell from him.

Things to do

  • Finish Woodfall Temple, thereby helping the Deku and the Monkeys. ✓
  • Finish Snowhead Temple. thereby helping the Goron. ✓
  • Finish The Great Bay Temple. ✓

I’ve also started working on a ”schedule” of sort to help me keep track of what to do and when. (The arrow marks where I’m currently at.)

Schedule

  1. Get the Moon Tear and trade it for a Town Title Deed.
  2. Soar to the Southern Swamp and trade the title deed for a Swamp Title Deed instead.
  3. Soar to Woodfall and beat the temple boss.
  4. Deliver the Deku Princess to her father. (I forgot to do this in this round.)
  5. 2:20 pm – Wear the Kafei-mask and speak to Anju after the mailman has given her Kafei’s mail.
  6. Soar to Snowhead and beat the temple boss.
  7. Soar to Zora Cape, find the Business Scrub and trade Land Title Deeds with him.
  8. Head for the Great Bay Temple and beat the boss. (Done around 10 pm.)
  9. 11:30 pm – Speak to Anju in the kitchen of the Stockpot Inn. ⃪
  10. Run toward the north part of Clocktown and mail Anju’s letter on the way.
  11. 00:00 – Help the old lady in north of Clocktown as she’s getting robbed.
  12. 02:00 am – Soar to Milk Road, call for Epona and ride to Romani Ranch to help Romani.

More to be added.

This post contains spoilers for the game Zelda: Majora’s Mask (3D) and the movie Groundhog Day. If you haven’t played the game or watched the movie, you really should.

In Groundhog Day, Bill Murray plays an a**hole tv weather man stuck in a time-loop, forced to repeat the same day over and over again. He eventually breaks free, basically by realizing that since he repeats the same day time and time again, and thus has the ability to know everything there is to know about anyone in the small town in which is he is forced to roam, he has the ability to learn all that’s needed for him to help everyone have an as good day as possible. In the end he tries to create ”the perfect day”.

In Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D (and the old N64 version) Link is forced to relive the same three days over and over again. As I play the game I help a lot of people with different things and I am rewarded in various ways, mostly with ”pieces of hearts” or masks. (Most of the helping of these people is done in ”side quests”. Not essential to the completion of the game.) The people I help are happy but once time resets their perils are back. I don’t need to help them again since I’ve already got what I need, but as I immerse myself in the game I have a hard time not feeling sorry for them as their problems come back.

As I think I’m getting closer to the end of the game I’ve gotten the idea to try and create a ”Perfect Day”, or more like three perfect days, for the inhabitants of Thermina. It will likely not change anything about the ending of the game but I will feel accomplished and happy if I managed to do it. The idea is to help as many people as possible with whatever I’ve helped them with in past run-throughs, before I finally head into the Clock Tower and whack Skull Kid.1 I know I will not be able to help every single person in the game in need of help, in a single run-through of the three days. I’ll have to make some prioritization.2

I’m currently in the middle of a trial run for this. In previous rounds I have finished all four temples so technically I could head for Skull Kid right now and finish the game. Still, I’d like to help some more people first and hopefully add them to my list of participants in the ”Perfect Round”. This round I’m trying to help the star-crossed lovers Anju and Kafei by retrieving the Sun Mask that the thief stole from Kafei. This is a quest that I have not completed before.

For this round I’ve made the following list of things to do and people to help. (Checkmarks indicate what’s already done this far in this round, around midday of the first day.)

People to help

  • Anju and Kafei
  • Save Romani from the cow-sucking space aliens.
  • Protect Cremia(?), Romani’s sister, on her route to Clocktown.
  • Complete the full trading of Business Scrubs’ trading lots.
  • Protect the old lady carrying bombs through North Clock Town at night.
  • Help the girl whose dad’s been turned into a Gibdo by removing the spell from him.

Things to do

  • Finish Woodfall Temple, thereby helping the Deku and the Monkeys. ✓
  • Finish Snowhead Temple. thereby helping the Goron.

  1. I think facing Skull Kid is the way I’ll take the game to an end, but I don’t know for sure. 
  2. Perhaps a more skilled player than me could actually help every single person in need of help in one run-through. Perhaps not.
