I'm a father, musician, academic, work psychologist and former sysadmin. Skalman (Shellman) is a character in a Swedish comic for kids. He is an ingenious tortoise who invents all sorts of things, including spacecraft and time machines. He's also a know-it-all, and he slavishly follows his food-and-sleep clock (which is why people used to call me 'Skalman').
Macabre kitten joke Show more
The little boy was sitting there crying. A man came by, felt pity for the boy and asked what had happened.
— Dad drowned my kittens!
— What a horrible thing to do!
— Yes! He promised that I could do it!
My gripe with people flinging around the word "fascist" these days, meaning "nasty people I don't like" is that they are diluting the term, which is actually quite specific in political economics. They're making it hard to differentiate, for example, classic conservatives from fascists, or free market fundamentalists from fascists. They're entirely different groups with entirely different political and economic philosophies.
I need a new phone. My last phone was a #Nexus6P, but it died the infamous boot-loop death recently.
I need a budget #Android phone, not a state-of-the-art phone like the over-priced Nexus I had. Any advice welcome!

Looking for #Evernote replacement Show more
What alternatives to #Evernote is there?
What I appreciate the most is cross-platform compatibility. What I miss the most is native #markdown support (but sublime-evernote is a wonderful remedy). What I hate is the big business attitude of the company.
I have all my research articles and notes stored in Evernote, so at least basic handling of #PDF attachments is a requirement.
A #foss solution won't hurt, but is not required.
Job interview advice Show more
Job interview coming up tomorrow. I usually screw them up by saying stupid things.
What are your best advice not screwing things up?
Give me some classical job interview questions I can prepare answers to.
Unbelievable. The train has hasn't moved in two hours and a half and we're scheduled for another hour and a half before we arrive at #Umeå. And we're just outside Umeå!
