I’m giving over for the latest blog meme while waiting for a connection to the local Midgard server here. For some reason the firewall blocks pretty much everything…
So here are the Four Things:
Four jobs I’ve had in my life
- IT class administrator at Nimad, my father’s company
- Web designer at HyperHouse, a new media company
- Project manager at Stonesoft, a security software company
- Entrepreneur at Nemein, a content management vendor
Four movies I can watch over and over
I don’t tend to watch movies more than once or twice, but these four stand out of the group:
- Porco Rosso
- Blade Runner
- Monty Python and the Holy Grail
- I’ve also seen Braveheart at least a gazillion times in the Viking period
Four places I have lived
I’ve actually lived in only three different cities, but I guess the summer cottage can be counted as fourth, as I spent lots of time there when I was a kid:
- Helsinki, Finland
- Kirkkonummi, Finland
- Espoo, Finland
- Sulkava, in the lake region of Finland
Four TV shows I love to watch
I don’t watch TV anymore, but back in late 90’s when I was living in a commune apartment, we used to watch:
- Babylon 5
- Dawson’s Creek
- Earthworm Jim
Four places I have been on vacation
Four of my favourite dishes
I’m really into oriental dishes, and also food made out of basic ingredients like dried meat:
Four websites I visit daily
I guess this means the sites I really visit, instead of just reading them with my RSS reader:
Four places I would rather be right now
Hey, I’m in South Africa and it is 24°C outside, so why complain?
In the other news, I’m now in Cape Town, South Africa. I’ll spend the next two weeks here working on IDASA’s new Word on the Street Portal for journalists covering local government. The project is funded by Finnish Foreign Ministry and coordinated by the City of Tampere.
Connectivity here in the office is quite slow, and allows only proxied HTTP, so I won’t be able to be on IRC or access my mail too often. I’ll have to see if the Townhouse hotel connection is less restricted.
Updated 2006-01-25: The four things meme is quite popular. According to Google Blog Search there are over 19,000 blog postings about it already.
And the connection problems are clear now: we have hear a 128 Mb DSL line that is shared with 100 users.
