Fly, taken at 1.5x magnification. I would have gone closer, but any closer and the flash would push the leaf.

I've been running Linux at home for the past 15 years. This is only an issue with Windows being retarded.

Someone on the Android team has been a little too clever, methinks... A common way of scaling a bitmap looks like this:

Bitmap newBmp = Bitmap.createScaledBitmap(bmp, width, height, true);
bmp.recycle();
picture.setBitmap(newBmp);

Now, if you don't add a check for whether scaling is actually necessary, the source bitmap is returned! Which of course means that the newBmp is equal to bmp, which was just recycled, and now your app will crash.

Basically they had a choice. If there is no reason to scale they could:
1. Make the app run slightly slower.
2. Make the app crash.

For some reason they opted for option number two...

+googlefit... The day before yesterday I installed the app. Yesterday I took my bike to visit my dad, taking a short stop at the nearest train station to pick up my girlfriend. At this point I check out Google Fit, and am very impressed with how much information it has.

Anyway, we proceed (by bike) to my dad's place. I pull out my phone to show off Google Fit and... It has started over from the train station. If I go to the hour-by-hour breakdown it still has the old data, but it now says I have only biked 3km (or so).

A while later the hourly breakdown has been replaced by the new reality as well.

It only took a day for the app to royally fuck up!

For a company as arrogant in it's hiring practices as Google, they sure produce dodgy software! Consistently. I had to move away from Google Keep because it regularly lost several days of updates to my notes.

Apparently my girlfriend and I are not very good at keeping plants. This one is especially needy, requiring a good amount of water every day. And even getting this, it wakes up looking remarkably tired. This is what happens when we water it.

(We are now giving it even more water in an attempt to avoid these tantrums)

In Denmark 3D movies have become increasingly popular with the cinemas, only showing few 2D screenings on movies that they have 3D versions of. What's your opinion on 3D in theatres?

Gravity is so far the only movie I thought actually benefitted from 3D.

My friend, who is still struggling with the technical details of photography, went here to upgrade her lens to one more sensitive to light. She told the clerk she needed this to photograph at events. However, they didn't have what she needed, but through a very convincing sales pitch she got the spectacularly bad advice to upgrade to a slightly better lens with a more limited zoom and the exact same f-stop. At great cost. This is one of the more expensive brick and mortar stores in Copenhagen, and if you can't go there when you are unsure of what you need you are better off shopping online or at least somewhere else. A single star added for reversing the deal when we came back 20 minutes later.

An adventure into the world of seafood. Try the seafood special! €27 is expensive for an appetizer, but it's worth every cent. Great atmosphere, competent waiters. If you're willing to spend a little extra, this won't disappoint!

Went there for lunch. The very nice waiter recommended the daily special, a New York strip steak sandwich, which I ordered. The sandwich smelled incredibly spoiled and I had to send it back. Ruined my appetite completely. They have a very impressive milkshake menu, including classics such as bacon pancake flavour or captain crunch. I chickened out with a caramel, which was ok, except for the ending which most of all resembled butter. I won't be coming back.

Fairly expensive, but they serve the best cocktails in town, and the service is always top of the line!
