Stomach Bug

I mean, a fever and a headache, fine. But a stomach bug ??? Can’t hold down food or drinks. Spending most of the night on the toilet. I hope I will skip this for another …. eternity!!

January with all its boring weather. But, you try to make the most of it. It wasn’t bad at all. Almost no wind and just a bit of a drizzle in the air. No heavy rainfall.

The only thing I was really worried about was my tennis-elbow and how it would hold up. I knew that as long as I wouldn’t have too much pain on the fun sections, I would probably go for it and try to ignore the pain. So, it will be interesting to see how the elbow is behaving tomorrow.

New Site with Hugo

This is a totally new site. No more Wordpress!! Just plain old HTML and some CSS to make it look nice.

The reason was that Wordpress was getting more and more complex to play around with. I wanted to change the theme for my site, but with all the latest upgrades, it wasn’t so easy anymore. Then I saw a lot of talk about “good old static sites” that load super fast (because there is no database behind it). The other big advantage is that I write blog-posts in markdown now!!!! It makes life so much easier.

So first I tried Jekyll. Quick and easy installation. Even found a plugin that can transfer all your Wordpress posts to Jekyll posts with all the tags and categories, … But, with over 1000 posts on the old wordpress, it took ages to reload and rebuilt the site with Jekyll as soon as you made a change somewhere.

Looking for a solution I stumbled across Hugo. Built on Go and super fast. So I found a Tufte theme for it and 5 minutes later I was working with a new site. Easy peasy….

But what will take some time now is importing all the old stuff. I still want it here, but with a better layout and some correct data about the photos taken. Slowly but surely.

New lights and iPhone

The old lights for the bike where done. Just went black during one of the rides home. Luckily I knew where I was and it wasn’t in the middle of the forest!!! So I had to go and buy something new. I had my eyes on some Gloworm lights, which get really good reviews. But the problem is that they are expensive and…. I need them NOW! Not in a few weeks.

So off I went to the local shop and got me some good old Magicshines again. Only this time I decided to go for the best and brightest they had. Behold … 6500 lumen. Of course you have to take that with a grain of salt. And how long do they last? But so far so good on the first couple of rides. A lot more light in the forest, which makes a lot of difference.

What a Friday evening can look like. Waiting in the car for the oldest kid and her friends at Liseberg (amusement park in the city). When you are tired and just want to be in the sofa watching TV. But better get them safely home then sorry.

Trams or subways in Sweden look more like busses with their seatings. This layout, with the seats opposite each other and lots of open space, we only see in movies.
