First time golf

Who would have ever thought I’d play golf someday in my life? Well, it did happen. A sort of “team building” at work, or maybe just an excuse to get work to pay for someones hobby? At least, 20-some collegues and me went out in the rain. It was quite fun actually, I even hit 2cm over par once. Here are some pictures.

Tomorrow, I’m out in the rain again. This time collecting mushrooms with my old biology group.

Two new ports committer

Somehow, just like accidents, new ports committer proposals never come alone. Today, portmgr unanomously approved two new committers. First, there is Tom McLaughlin, mentored by ahze and mezz, and second we have Marcus Alves Grando, mentored by pav. Wish them luck!

Great Tina Dickow concert

I just got home from one of the best Tina Dickow concerts I’ve been to. It’s part of the “Trax coming home” series of DRs P3 (danish national radio) where they let danish artist play in the town they grew up in, so Tina’s concert was at her old school in Ã…byhøj. Her music is kinda quiet and melancholic, so it was really nice to see her with a small audience like this. Sondre Lercke was playing a couple of songs as special guest and, boy, he can play! I’ve seen him once before at a Spot festival and was very impressed. We’re going to see a lot more of him. Highlight of the evening, at least for me, was the Leonard Cohen song “Halleluja”, played as a duet and with danish lyrics for part of the song. Sondre and Tina’s version tonight was even better then the one played two years ago at Spot9 with Steffen Brandt.

Anyway, fot those lucky enough to live in Danmark, the concert will air on Wednesdag at 11pm on P3.

Forgotten pictures from Scotland

Oops! I just found out that I forgot to upload the pictures of the last day of the trip to Scotland. Fortunately, there are not many, only a few of a couple of castles we visited on the way back to the airport in Glasgow. The most famous of those castles is Stirling Castle, also the most touristy. Anyway, here are the last pictures.

IPA sold out

Yesterday, I popped in at the Cockney pub to see how well my Fuskerbryg Festival IPA has been doing during the yearly Festival Week. It couldn’t have been better. It was the most sold beer of all! He could have sold at least 50% more. No wonder Mike wants me to brew more for the next festival, but brewing more than 100 liter is not easy with only a 20 liter system, so let’s see what happens.

Droso – now with blog

It took a while, but finally I succumbed and created a blog. Now let’s see how often and what I’m going to write here :-)


A week ago, I returned from a short trip to Scotland. See the pictures.
