My Eurotrip

As previously mentioned I'm going on a small trip in march, so that's pretty soon. By now I've pretty much planned everything out. The main goal of the trip is to exprience some concerts with some nice bands and artists, and it has been planned around that. At one point I had ordered tickets for six concerts, but then in one day two of them cancelled their tours (Natasha Bedingfield and Sophie Ellis-Bextor) and a few days before I found out that I didn't get the ticket anyway that I'd ordered for Kelly Clarkson. However I managed to find a ticket for Kelly Clarkson on some other website, though more expensive, and I found one more concert.

Here's a schedule of my trip:

March 1: Leave from Denmark
2: Lyon
3: Alicia Keys at Lyon
4: Lyon
5: Lyon -> London
6: London
7: Rihanna at London
8: London
9: London
10: London
11: London -> Manchester
12: Panic! at the disco at Manchester
13: Manchester
14: Kelly Clarkson at Manchester
15: Manchester
16: Manchester -> Hamburg
17: Nightwish at Hamburg
18: Hamburg -> Denmark

As transportation I've ordered an interrail ticket. Today I bought 100€ and 100£. I've booked hostels in all the cities where I'll be. So I'm quite ready by now.

My gallery

I don't think I've mentioned this, but a while ago I bought a webhotel at, mainly to get more discspace. They offer 500gb, a bit more than my old, where I have 500mb. It costs a lot more obviously, but not too much. Anyway I ordred a new domain along with it aswell, as I haven't moved kopasite there yet, because I still have some time untill it expires on Beside more space they also offer a lot of great things, such a posibility to make unlimited databases instead of having everything in one.

The domain I ordered was, which I'm going to use as a portal for all my minor sites such as my movie reviews and this blog. It is more of less finished now, as I a few days ago managed to get some parsing working with php so that the newest blog post is on the frontpage of

A new page I've made recently is a gallery using the Gallery software. I've sorted most of my digital pictures and put the good ones on the gallery, which now has 752 pictures in 8 catagories.

Two XP reinstalls later..

In my eternal pursuit to reduce the noise level from my computer I ordered two sets of Harddisc stabilizer things along with a MicroSD card I needed. I bought a new soundcard aswell while I was at it, a Sound Blaster X-Fi Extreme Audio for PCI-express, but that's a whole different story. Tuesday I recieved it and opened up my computer to put it into use. That went without much trouble, except from getting one of the harddrives out of the old boxes I had them in to prevent noise aswell. I replaced these since they were ugly and caused the harddrive to become too hot.

As I booted up the computer again I got a System boot error, which I gotten before so I knew it had probably something to do with the cables not being attached properly. (I learned later that day it's because which SATA connector you attach them to on the motherboard decides which is master and slave.) When I switched them around I got another error however, some .dll file in windows missing. I tried getting the .dll from my fathers computer, but that didn't help, so I had to do an XP reinstall. Last time I did so I'd made a small partition for windows, so I didn't have much files to backup, which I did by attaching the harddrive to my dads computer.

Some nabness in windows installation caused some some trouble when XP was back up. It had made another drive than the windows drive C: and system drive. So the boot information and such were not on the windows drive. But it worked fine so what the fuck.

A day or two later the computer suddenly freezes totally and go blue screen, and it happens again and again. I soon narrows the error down to my oldest harddrive, a maxtor 160gb. The one that is C: but not windows drive. I couldn't access any files on it without the computer freezing. Couldn't run any CHKDSK or anything on it either. I tried getting a trial membership on to get some help. Didn't get much valuable help, but one suggest reinstalling windows, which I do after plugging out the cable to the faulty harddrive so it doesn't make that C: and system disc again.

And that is when magic happens. When I plug it in again after the second XP reinstall in five days there's no more freezing or blue screen \o/ CHKDSK however finds some errors and fixes.

Oh the freedom

Last wednesday was my last day in the civil defence. Usually I go home in the evening but I decided to stay there tuesday evening, which turned out to be a good decision. A few guys from my platoon bought five cases of beers, which we started drinking around 20:00. Shortly before midnight there were no more beers and this one guy who wasn't drinking went to get another two cases. Even later when those were consumed aswell two guys went to the cafeteria, to which there were an unlocked door, an stole a case of beers. I went to bed a little past two, having to get up again next day at seven.

The last day consisted of cleaning our rooms, getting some papers and a few goodbye words from the officers.
