Cold V

11 (eleven) centigrade, still cold. There are some scholars that say it is due to the Gulf stream slowing down. If true then it will get even colder here up north or “You know nothing John Snow.”.

That is approx. 24 hrs worth of snow on my balcony rail. 100.00mm/3.93″ (and still falling).

– Develop tools for performance testing and resilience testing/chaos engineering – Analyse non-functional system design and behaviour – Define performance requirements – Support development teams as they build performance tests and set up reporting – Identify failure modes and scalability issues and provide input to architecture to resolve issues

Hjärtstartare/Cardiac Arrest

January 24th, 2018 Comments off

The actual defibrillator seems to be missing.

There’s a hand-written comment on the “FELANMÄLD” note that reads: “Tom sedan september” it would equate to: “Emtpy since September” (I am assuming the month of September last year, that would be anno Domini 2017).

If the comment is indeed true and if it is currently January 2018 that would make give or take five months without a: “hjärtstartare” at T-Centralen (Central Station) in Stockholm, Sweden, on the upper floor.

The ATM a foot away (to the left in the picture, but out of shot) seemed to be in full working order though… I will have to revist the site in question.

Subversive

January 5th, 2018 Comments off

At one time it was feared and considered deeply subversive.

“Anti EP” is the third EP by British electronic music duo Autechre, released by Warp Records on 3 September 1994.

Anti EP was a protest against the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994, which would prohibit raves (described as gatherings where music is played), with “music” being defined as a “succession of repetitive beats.”

Warning. ‘Lost’ and ‘Djarum’ contain repetitive beats. We advise you not to play these tracks if the Criminal Justice Bill becomes law. ‘Flutter’ has been programmed in such a way that no bars contain identical beats and can therefore be played under the proposed new law. However, we advise DJs to have a lawyer and a musicologist present at all times to confirm the non repetitive nature of the music in the event of police harassment.

AB ATOMENERGIS EXPERIMENTREAKTOR R1, STOCKHOLM

An experimental nuclear reactor that was housed 25 meters under the campus of KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm.

That would be in the very inner city of the capital of Sweden. The reactor was active between 1954 and 1970.

It was the first Swedish nuclear reactor and the only one thus far to have been completely disassembled and decommissioned.

The many (compared to population and other energy resources) Swedish nuclear reactors (at least 14) suggests something about ambitions other than producing electric power.

The kind of ambition that requires weapons-grade plutonium to achieve.

…Reaktor 1, R1, startas, och klockan 18:59 den 13 juli 1954 gick reaktorn kritisk, det vill säga kärnklyvningen blev självgående.
…Reactor 1, R1, is started, and 18:59 the 13th of July 1954 the reactor becomes critical and manifests fission – a sustained and slow nuclear chain-reaction.
