Busy times ...
Apologies for the lack of new posts recently. This is down to two factors:
1) Too much work ; and
2) I'm a lazy bastard
There will be posts over the coming days about:
1) Christmas in Denmark
2) The NEXT2005 exhibition held on 25/26 November ; and
3) My chums' (Eadmund, Trixie, Mark and Robin) visit over this weekend past.
Stay tuned ...

I was at David Heinemeier Hansson's "leaving Denmark" do tonight when, around 8:20pm, I got a voicemail from J, and an SMS. The SMS said simply, "call". You don't ignore an SMS like that. A fire had broken out two blocks away from home; the apartment was filling with smoke, there were clouds of thick black smoke on Amager Boulevard, there were huge flames appearing over the top of the apartment block across the street from us and would I please come home N-O-W. So I left (sorry, David and organisers).
And there was indeed a roof fire of a stunning size. You can get some idea of its scope if you check out the fireman in this photo (from the Politiken article):
(Some of our own photos will be here soon)
You can see how close the fire (red cross) was to our apartment (green cross) on this map:

Geek dinner Copenhagen v1.0
I've been a bit remiss in not mentioning how well the first Copenhagen geek dinner went. Excellent sushi at Letz on Christianshavn. I'm really looking forward to the second one in January.
