I'm 30

Yesterday it was my real birthday and we had a family dinner together and later a good friend (that missed the party) came by with his wife and newborn girl. The party was held 4 days ago and 14 friends attended.. most of them are into computers! It started out with massive rain and later the weather cleared up so we could be outside most of the time. 

For a long time I have been worried about how this birthday would turn out.

Rant: danish media, weather, software complexity and my new project

It's late 02:30 in the middle of the night. Let's see if I can put together a meaningful post before I go to bed. With all the recent focus on Mexican Flu it seems like the danish media has gone back to the regular news about a drug/gang war going on in Copenhagen, famous people and sports. Topics that gets way too much attention. The press releases I have posted has mostly been relayed unmodified to a lot of places (macworld.com). It seems that the regular news media works the same way.. just copy paste with a few changes. In the tech news this copy/paste seems widespread.

Also the weather outside my door is too good to do anything serious and its not even summer yet. It's too bright, too warm and there is too many active people outside making noise. In order to do work my curtains is pulled down and I wear a headset to cancel out the noise. Despite this I throw myself into ever more complex projects and I'm started questioning the whole way I do programming to avoid this complexity, however that is also complex to grasp. And soon its my 30 year birthday, so it takes up some brain cycles thinking about this. So it's too hot and too complex at the moment.

I have begun working on a Norton Commander clone for Mac, to take a break from GraphicDesignerToolbox. I wanted to write a big post about it, but there isn't anything to tell about it yet. I don't even know if I will publish it. Screenshots.. Later.

Update: see the screenshots here
