About three years ago (end of 2007) I wrote about monitors and square monitors (See here). I received a good few comments on that (Sorry people, first got some of them approved recently). Instead of giving feedback on the comments directly in the comment section I decided to write a new blog post, as things have changed a bit since then and I thought it would be fair to give feedback and some updates. My monitor setup and future wishes have changed from back in 2007. Lot’s have also happened on the monitor market but still no real square monitor available.
On My Mind.
Guess we reached the time where EVERYBODY is talking about the World Cup and guess what, it is the same here at ETH Zurich where I work. We have gone an extra step and is doing some betting/voting, everybody pays 10 CHF, half goes to the winners and the rest is used for BBQ ;-)
We are using the online service tipponline.ch
That’s probably all I have to say about the World Cup (yes, I’m not a big fan…)
Just wanted to let people know that I’m still alive :-) but seems the blog is dying, let’s see if I can get around to get it back alive.
As you might have noticed, this year did not start with a review of last years goals nor a list of goals for this year. This does not mean I don’t have goals and just want the year to pass. I got lots of goals, ideas and so forth for this year.
For the last many month I have been busy with a few things in my spare time, such as live poker, online poker and development of a iPhone game. The iPhone project was shortly mentioned in July, in what I wanted to be a kick start of the blog (See Kick start of Blog Summer 2009). I’m not going to promise anything about kick starting the blog but will promise that there will be some postings very soon about the iPhone project, if that makes zense!
Regarding poker, this year I only played 3 live tournament so far (With a small profit) but I played a lot of online poker, made it to Silverstar in January, almost won entry to EPT Copenhagen, cashed out in the Sunday Millions and then spend the rest of the bankroll on various satellites.
Anyway, just wanted to mentioned I’m alive and got lots on my mind.
Last week I got snail mail from Buffalo, NY, USA and I was really like “WTF… who is that from!” First I thought it was some promotion from a game developer conference or maybe promotion from a online poker site.
To my big surprise it was actually from Google! Included was a check of 102.31 CHF (Just about $100), earnings from Google Adsense. I was surprised because I didn’t request a payment nor did I think I had so much in earnings. Guess it will take another 4 years before I get the next check from them ;-)
Now I’m just wondering how much it will cost to cash it out!
I’m an active user of various chat/messages programs, Facebook and Twitter, so thought I would share a few thoughts on this…

Oh dear, things have just been going slower and slower with the blog. Not that I don’t have tons of things on my mind but I just never get around to blog about it. Often I think “Oh, I have to blog about this…” (Examples: Lord of the Ring concert in Denmark, when Michael Jackson died, movies I seen, games I played, software I use and the list goes on) I might even get started on writing but that’s all that happens.
As promised earlier this year I would write a bit about my plans/goals/aims for 2009, and as always I’m late (sorry) with the blog entry. This was probably the longest delay ever seen on this blog. But here goes:
I have decided (Did earlier this year) not to set any specific goals for 2009, nothing specific I want to achieve this year but rather things I want to improve. So nothing about X number of blog entries, X number of poker games and so forth.
Goodbye to 2008 and Happy New Year to everybody out there.
Oh dear, yet another year passed. At the start of 2008 I made a post here on the blog about my goals for 2008 (click here to read it), still makes me smile that I called it 2007 and the link does say 2007, but it was for 2008, really.
Do I plan to set new goals for 2009? Of course but before I write about those it might be an idea to review the goals for 2008, so here goes.
At the start of August I wrote about goals and small rules to be used in life. I wanted to do an update each month but for some reason I never got around to do the September one (Actually, not much happened in September with the blog and postings).
Anyway, let me recap how it went with the rules and goals set early August and also have a look at October and the month to come.
Some of you (those who know me for real) will know that I play Lord of The Rings Online a good bit; sure not as much as other addicts are doing.
Anyway, in the game I’m able to craft things and I have selected tailoring as my main profession. So I can make lots of fancy cloth, armour and so forth. Due to me been tailor I’m not able to create metal armour so just leather armour. This suits me fine as thats the only kind of armour I can use in the game.
My sister is also playing the game and I often help her with armour but she (One of her characters only) can actually use metal armour. So there I’m no help.
So my sister has to shop for the items and guess what, she just bought THE pair of gloves. Do check the picture.
