Yesterday we were supposed to fly back to London from Denmark. Unfortunately our flight was cancelled. We found out about it when we arrived at the airport, but couldn’t check in. There was a massive queue of people waiting to try and rebook a flight or get a refund. I jumped on to my iPhone and changed flights for one the next day (tonight). I also investigated hotels. We managed to book The Renaissance hotel in Malmo, Sweden for the night. We also organised a late checkout, so it was quite a pleasant day today. Having O2 International Roaming was fantastic.

Today we spent the day walking Copenhagen. Lunch was pickled herring at a spot down by the canal. I resisted having (what looked like the traditional) beer.

Apache is still bundled with Mountain Lion, but you can no longer start it using the “Sharing” icon under the “System Preferences” app.
I’ve been using time-boxing for quite a while, off and on. I have a task list every day and start timing chunks of time in which to work on the tasks. I’m not like Helen, who finds it easy to work at home. I find it far easier to work at a client’s office. This has changed recently though, thanks to my new work-flow.
There is a wonderful story over at Runner’s World about Bret Dunlap, a guy who was badly injured when he was a kid. His brain and body are damaged. It’s about how he moves on and adapts. How his mother helps him recover and build a life. How he discovers running and it helps change his life. The story is poignant and well written. It’s definitely worth reading.
There is an interesting clip over on YouTube, that shows what having Google Glass (or something similar) might someday be like.
