Busses still on strike

I have no idea how they get away with paralysing a whole city for so long, but in the last seven days the city busses have operated only Wednesday. I don’t even quite understand what the bus drivers are angry about, so I really don’t think a week long strike is the way forward. Ironically, I bought a new buscard for the next half year starting, of course, the day the strikes started. Just my luck.
Luckily, it finally starts to get spring and I got my motorbike out of winterstorage yesterday. So no more begging for a ride or biking those 5km uphill myself :)

City busses on strike

The city busses are really starting to piss me off. Of the 4 workdays in this week, they are now on strike for the 3rd day. Tuesday, after I came home around 1am, I just went to work normally with one of the intercity busses and only found out I couldn’t get home after I got to work. Luckily, I could get a ride from a collegue. Wednesday, everything was fine again, but yesterday I was waiting for about 10 minutes for the bus and thought it odd I had seen no city bus whatsoever. So I checked their webpage from my phone, and lo and behold, they were on strike again. A bicycle trip followed. Today, I was clever enough to check the webpage during breakfast and send a text message to a collegue. Funny thing is that the busdrivers are public servants and are actually not allowed by law to strike. And I thought that it was only in Italy where public transport was on strike every other day…

New ports committer: Lars Balker Rasmussen

I got a new mentee. This time I was smart enough to find one in Ã…rhus, so if he makes a mistake, he can buy me beer the same night, instead of having to wait for half a year for the next conference :-)
Please welcome Lars Balker Rasmussen to the team. He has been doing way too much work on the perl Catalyst framework in our dear ports tree.
