I should write down my experiences, so far, of cataract surgery. Mixed feelings so far.

If you are interested in photography I think you should read this blog post and consider becoming a Flickr Pro (unless you already are one)

Om det inte varit en annons från Academic Work 😝

My eye, post-surgery … now I just have to wait for 1-5 days to see 🙄 what the result will be

Sigh, the disk that contains all my photos has crashed … sometimes I’m grateful that I’m paranoid about backup 😅

Today is one of the days when I consider finally fixing my home office and then become a remote worker (not that I can work remotely in my job).

Managing photos

The time consuming part of my weekend preparations is done.

I had my first “play time” with Photo Mechanic and … it’s really fast, I mean really really really fast compared to Lightroom. I still need to take a more detailed look at tagging but as far as culling, PM is way better that LR.

And colder

Today’s observation: I don’t know which is more difficult but I’m pretty sure that finding a water leak in a major water line is more physically demanding than finding software bugs

Today’s minor inconvenience: I cut my hair and turn on the shower to realize that there is no water (my whole village and two others have no water at the moment). Those small hair pieces are having a lot of fun on my skin right now 🙂

Photo Mechanic – could it solve my problems?

OK, so now I have the date and time for my eye surgery, I think I can look forward to a few weeks with a lot of audiobooks, podcasts and music.

På samma sätt som det finns förbud mot åldersdiskriminering, könsdiskriminering, etc. Borde det inte finnas ett förbud mot att ha skor bara i små storlekar … det är inte OK (jo, såg just ett par skor som såg trevliga ut men de fanns bara upp till storlek 41)

It’s really interesting to observe 5-6 year old kids, how they behave, grow, change behavior, socialize, etc. After having been an instructor for 10 years or so I’m starting feel that I’m mature enough to be a parent (my youngest is 21 😋)

One of my unfinished projects

Back home after a week of travel. This 1.5 year have made me understand people who buy multiple toilet bags, notebooks, etc and keep them in separate bags so that all that is needed is to pick the right bag to be ready go. Well, one more trip and then I expect this to be over.

Stockholm är inte mitt ställe på denna jord

Time for the 2nd trip this week. This is highly unusual, the last year or so I’ve done more traveling than in many years. The normal have been 1 trip/year. This year I’ve been traveling a lot more but I expect this to be the 2nd to last before going back to the once/year pattern.

The health app on my Apple Watch must live in a completely different time zone than I. Yesterday at 22:30 it told me “yesterday you had an excellent day, what are going to do today” … ehh, sleep?? And this morning at 4:30 “you better check your circles, you’re far behind” … 🤷🏻‍♂️

Having a conference in an “open spece” at a university is a really bad idea

It may be silly and stupid but I’m proud anyway. 1000 days straight (but I’m slightly disappointed that Apple removed that medal)

Scientific publishers like Elsevier and Springer are royal pains in the ass, the sooner they go away, the better. Also, why are library systems so hard to use?

One thing I would like to do is to go to a conference, not to present a paper or anything like that. Instead I want photograph/document the whole conference. It would be really fun & interesting.
