Update on William 
William is 11 days old now and he's just fine. He doesn't cry much at all which is nice but some nights he doesn't wanna sleep. Guess it goes with the age... Anyway, both Katharina and Joakim are very happy with the new addition to the family.

William är 11 dagar gammal nu och mår bara bra. Han skriker knappast någonting och det är ju skönt, men vissa nätter vill han inte sova utan bara vara vaken och dricka mjölk. Antar att det går över med tiden... Hur som helst är både Katharina och Joakim glada över den nya familjemedlemmen.

Denon's New Turntable And My Big Vinyl Project 
Beginning of this year, I took on My Big Vinyl Project. The goal is to convert all the vinly LPs I have into CD format to save space at home. I won't save every single record, but most of them. Counting some 850 LPs it's a wast task. So far I finished about 100 records, so keeping that speed it's a 3 year project going on.

For this purpost I bought myself a new record player last Christmas, one of those with an USB connector you can plug directly into your computer. It works great and after removing pop, clicks and noise the result is magnificent. But I wish I have had bought this Denon record player instead.

Denon's new DP-200USB turntable is a hybrid vinyl ripper and player, with an USB port to plug in your USB-stick into! The conveniently placed USB port on the front makes it a breeze to digitally transfer over my favorite vinyls to MP3 format with a simple click of a button.

Full description on the encoding tech below:

The included PC software features Audio Waveform Recognition, which checks the first 15 seconds of each track and searches the extensive Gracenote Internet music tracks database to capture the track’s meta-deta (artist, title, etc.). The software also features Auto Track Divide, which notes silent breaks between tracks and automatically inserts a new track tag for each track (you also have the option of doing this manually). The front panel USB port allows connection to a USB flash drive or an external hard disk drive. In addition to the USB connection, the DP-200USB features conventional stereo outputs, which can be configured with or without RIAA equalization, for full compatibility with the widest range of audio components.

You can grab the Denon DP-200USB fully automatic record player with MP3 encoder for EUR190. Bundled software that takes care of organizing the ripped tracks only works with Windows XP and Vista, unfortunately, Mac users will need to hound Denon for some extra support love.

Mao And The Chinese Cell Phone Revolution 
Did you ever imagine cell phones would be so important? Thanks to its proximity to Japan and Taiwan, China is getting the most advanced phones before North America. Will China rule the world?

Lund Wins Bid To Host New Particle Accelerator 
The university town of Lund in southern Sweden is set to become the site of a new particle accelerator, Max IV, Lund University announced on Monday.

The university is now also hopeful of landing the larger European ESS project. The university reported that negotiations for the new proposed accelerator have been concluded and that a contract is set to be signed with Region Skåne, The Swedish Research Council (Vetenskapsrådet) and Vinnova to secure the future of the Max IV project.

The Max IV facility is planned to be the next generation Swedish synchrotron radiation facility. It will replace the existing laboratory consisting of the MAX I, II and III storage rings and the new accelerator's design also includes an option for a free electron laser as a second development stage of the facility.

Etableringen av MAX IV innebär att Lund blir ett världsledande centrum för forskning om material, energi och bioteknik. MAX-lab är ett nationellt laboratorium och forskningen som bedrivs där är baserad på synkrotronljusstrålning (röntgenstålning).

Denna strålning produceras av elektroner som färdas i nära ljusets hastighet genom magnetfält i en lagringsring. Med hjälp av strålningen kan egenskaper hos olika material utforskas.

Tre lagringsringar finns redan i på plats i Lund och nu ska den alltså den fjärde - MAX IV - byggas. Att ytterligare en ring behövs beror på den förbättrade nanotekniken. I takt med att den utvecklas måste även de metoder man använder sig av för att undersöka material förbättras.

MAX IV kommer att bli 100 gånger mer effektiv än alla andra synkrotronljusanläggningar i hela världen. Partiklar som är några miljarddels meter stora (10-9 m) kommer att kunna ses i genomskärning. Man kommer exempelvis att kunna göra kemiskt analyserade bilder av mycket små föremål som en bakterie eller få en bild av proteinstrukturen i ett virus.

Forskningsanläggningen kommer att bli världens bästa anläggning för att undersöka partiklar på nanonivå med synkrotronljus.

Welcome William 
Så har han då kommit, Leif William. Den 23/4 fick vi en pojk på 3780 gram och 51 cm. Både han och mamma mår bra. Nedan finns några bilder från den nyfödda och senare hans syskons möte med honom.

So, finally he arrived, Leif William. On April 23 vi got a baby boy measuring 3780 grams and 51 cm. Both William and his mother are doing fine. Below you'll find some picks of the newborn wonder and later his first meeting with his brother and sister.

Nya Slussen spikad 
Nu är det klart hur nya Slussen ska se ut. Den nuvarande 75 år gamla konstruktionen är i princip fallfärdig och måste rivas. Byggstarten på nya Slussen beräknas ske år 2012 och år 2018 kan det stå klart.

The Skype Certified Phone - Perfect If You Hate Headsets 
Skype and VOIP type communication methods are rapidly becoming the dominant way to talk with others. It's a perfect way to use the internet to cut costs drastically on your long distance plan, if you still have one. With these types of phones, and others, you are able to get a number and have it function like a landline. That's really good if you aren't fond of the headsets that most Skype users have.

This phone was created by IPEVO and it's been certified by Skype. It's been designed for the people who love Skyping, but hate the headsets. It also looks pretty professional and could even make people who have trouble with Skype use it everyday. This phone functions like any standard desk phone. Amazingly, this phone doesn't even need to be hooked up to your computer to use Skype. It can do it by itself, just like any other VOIP handset. Also, it is completely wireless. Now that is pretty cool. You can just take it around the house and use it. It still needs power though, so you are still corded to a power outlet, but that's OK.

It's got a 2.4-inch display and a bunch of Skype features, just like the Skype client you use on you computer. I think it's pretty cool, but somewhat expensive.

GLAD PÅSK 
För många år sedan när internet fortfarande var nytt satte jag upp min första hemsida. Lagom till påsk ville jag ha en påskhälsning och en arbetskamrat ritade en liten söt teckning i MS Paint som jag har haft undanstoppad sedan dess. Tillsammans med den lilla midi-filen på sidan vill jag önska alla en GLAD PÅSK!

Many years ago when internet was still a virgin I put up my first homepage. In time for Easter Holiday I wanted to have a greating to my visitors so I asked a colleague of mine to do something for me. She made a cute drawing in MS Paint and together with a midi file I got what I wanted, and I still have it. So HAPPY EASTER to everybody out there.

Japanese IQ Test 
This is an IQ test given to job applicants in Japan...or so I've been told.

Everybody has to cross the river"

To play, click the Related link below - then click the blue circle to start.

The following rules apply:

Only 2 people on the raft at a time.
The Father cannot stay with any of the daughters, without their Mother's presence.
The Mother cannot stay with any of the sons, without their Father's presence.
The thief (striped shirt) cannot stay with any family member, if the Policeman is not there.
Only the Father, the Mother and the Policeman know how to operate the raft.

To move people, click on them. To move the raft, click on the pole on the opposite side of the river. The solution is possible! THIS IS NOT A TRICK, PROMISE!
