In Gävle, Sweden, every year they build Gävlebocken, an enormous traditional Swedish Christmas straw goat. And every year, someone tries to burn it down. Here’s to holiday traditions.

Nu har Linn och jag sett klart säsong 10 av The X Files och jag kan varmt rekommendera er att aldrig någonsin göra det. Skräp!

larsemil . se | WordCamp 2016

Min vän Emil har skrivit ett inlägg om WordCamp 2016 där han tar upp sin känsla av att konferensen inte går tillräckligt på djupet. Jag vet inte med på WordCamp i år men det var precis den känslan jag hade det året då jag var med, så jag misstänker att jag hade hållit med honom i år också.

MacBook Pro Review: Touch Bar – YouTube

Jason Snell of Six Colors made a YouTube video as a companion to his MacBook Pro with a touch bar review. In the video he demonstrates how the touch bar behaves in different situations.

Depending on third party adoption of the touch bar, and whether Apple will roll it out to its entire product line fast enough or not, it may either be a very interning new paradigm for computer interaction or it will be a footnote on the road to touch screens everywhere.

Min gamla telefon och min nya… Eller är det tvärt om?

Ett byte till Android känns alltid som mest aktuellt när jag ska återskapa en nyinköpt iPhone från en tidigare telefons säkerhetskopia.

Det här verkar skumt…

Idag fick jag en present i posten. (Från mig, till mig.)

Novelist John Green and his awesome fans – YouTube

Counted in internet time this is an ancient video but it’s still worth a watch, especially if you know little or nothing about John Green.

Dear internet, just because something isn’t spelled out in a movie doesn’t make it a plot hole. A plot hole is when it contradicts itself.

Anime master Hayao Miyazaki is coming out of retirement to make one last film – The Verge

Back in 2013, legendary Japanese animator and director Hayao Miyazaki announced he would be retiring; making no more feature-length films in order to concentrate on smaller projects. Well, it turns out you can’t keep a good Oscar-winning artist down, and Miyazaki says he’s now coming out of retirement to make one last movie.

More Zelda – Twilight Princess

I’m still playing Twilight Princess even though I haven’t blogged about it for almost a month. I’ve intended to but haven’t gotten around to it and rather then spend time blogging about playing, up until now I’ve chosen to play it instead. Once more, this is a game that I think is better the less […]

Is this a bug in WordPress?

I’m working on a WordPress plugin to syndicate my posts to Twitter. I know, there are lots of plugins that does that already but none of the ones I’ve found does it the way I want, so I decided to roll my own. I’ve got the basics working and have been using it on my […]

Nintendo – Putting Play First | Game Maker’s Toolkit – YouTube

Mark Brown’s video series ”Gamemaker’s Toolkit” is very interesting to watch. In the episode Nintendo – Putting Play First I think he manages to explain to me why the games I play almost exclusively are first-party Nintendo games.

You should check it out!

Jag måste säga att jag är väldigt nöjd med utsikten från kontoret hemma.

We’ve just finished the latest season on Modern Family that’s available on Netflix in Sweden1, so we needed to find something new. While browsing for a while, not managing to agree on something, Linns sleepiness […]

Who is Mike Pence – the man who looks like he’ll be Donald Trump’s vice president

Donald Trump, the Republican candidate for US president, chose Mike Pence as his vice-presidential running mate earlier this year.

The Indiana governor, 57, has had a long career in political office, but has a fairly small profile outside his home state.

Here’s what you need to know about him:

Upgrade #114: Get On Down to Dongle Town – Relay FM

Myke Hurley and Jason Snell had a good discussion on the new MacBook Pros, USB-C dongles, the lack off Mac Pros, etc. on this weeks episode of Upgrade (#114: Get On Down to Dongle Town)

. Their optimism is a nice contrast to the doom and gloom on ATP (#194). Jason has almost convinced me that the Mac Pro might indeed not be dead.

Matilda Molander: Moraltanterna har bytt underkläder – Dagens Nyheter

För om man säljer underkläder är det inte mer än naturligt att de visas på halvnakna människor. Att de är sexiga är inte heller särskilt konstigt. Det är inte när kvinnor är sexiga och lättklädda i en underklädesreklam som jämställdheten är i fara. Det går utmärkt att vara stentuff svetsare, affärskvinna eller vårdbiträde med raffset under.

Problemet är att människor ständigt ska lägga sig i vad kvinnor har eller inte har på sig, och att klädvalet tros vara ett hemligt kodspråk med instruktioner för hur kvinnan i fråga bör behandlas. ”Så som hon gick klädd får hon ju nästan skylla sig själv.”
