Norwegian banks and BankID suck — I can’t log in to either one of my net bank accounts. This makes it difficult to pay bills. The country needs to update its bank software.

Found out about dropbox when comparing iPhone apps with my brother. Dropbox gets you 2GB free storage that you can access from any of your machines, including your iphone/pad/touch as well as desktop or laptop — nice simple synching.

Missing family back in Chicago already, at the same time as I’m enjoying sunshine and the cool breeze in Bergen. A three hour nap did me wonders.

Great conference. I wish Jill was here, or at least the Unknown. Glad I’m done with my Coover tribute talks. I need to get out of town and stop offending people with references to novels they have not and will never read.
