Tonight it’s time to get started on the Christmas beer. The Norwegian beer-club “Norøl” is hosting a Christmas beer festival tonight, which should be pretty good. Perfect warm-up for the Oslo Whiskyfestival tomorrow.  On a side-note, I picked up S.T.A.L.K.E.R. – Shadow of Chernobyl a couple of years back when it was first released. After playing the first mission I was so disappointed that I uninstalled it. Last week I decided to give it another go, and I came across a mod called STALKER Complete 2009 which improves everything from game mechanics to graphics. The game is now very playable, and a perfect substitute for Fallout 3. If you are into that kind of thing, go pick it up. Steam has a 5 euro special on it these days, so there is no excuse to not get it. Also, check out “the real STALKER“. Looks fun (if you don’t mind some radiation sickness).

Now, for some links:

After some time of inactivity I’ve decided to breath some life into this blog. This post is the first under the category “Evening reading”, which contains rambling on current events and some good reads I’ve come across. Expect more of these. As for content in general I’ve got a couple of book reviews lined up, some notes on my experiences with Actionscript3 and Flex, and a post on setting up your own dump of Geonames / GeoIP.

On a side note, I’m moving by the end of the month. Hooray for a new place!
