Almost at the end of day one of the fast – this was both more and less difficult than the last time I remember.
Easier because I’m not actually hungry, there is sort of a constant nagging from the stomach, but nothing that is really difficult to ignore (or to shut down with a glass of water). The family (of course) continues to eat, and that is a bit more difficult to stomach – so to speak – so I have not spent time with them at the table. Still the smell of freshly made Lasagne is a strong detractor.
More difficult because I had quite strong headache most of the afternoon and evening, and felt quite weak from time to time. I spent a couple of hours in bed – not sleeping, but just lying there, feeling miserable :) Also, we spent a couple of hours cleaning out or basement, and Daniela and I took a nice long walk in the afternoon.
Now, after another 2 hours of dozing, I actually feel quite good – just a slight headache remains.
Lots of water, mixed herbal tea (mint), 1 dl of freshly squeezed orange juice and maybe 1.5 dl of vegetable broth (without any vegetables in it, of course) – and 30 g of Sodium Sulfate in the morning.

The last time I held fast must be around 18 years ago. I remember deeply enjoying the experience (and missing the act of chewing the most) and I [...] Read more – ‘6 – fast’.
- 7 – getting git review to work
- Contributing to a large OS project (OpenStack) means to jump through a lot of hoops to get the necessary agreements in place and tools installed. OpenStack uses Gerrit for code reviews, and recommends to use git-review for easier review workflow. The installation is explained in the documentation and it could be as easy as: sudo pip [...] Read more – ‘7 – getting git review to work’.
- 8 – mikropolis
- My good friend Daniel Frei is embarking on several new exciting projects. One of them is Mikropolis, a “live polit no show” social media political discussion event. Daniela asked me and Dragica Kahlina to come up with some jingles for the show. This has in turn expanded into a live happening with Dragica and me playing [...] Read more – ‘8 – mikropolis’.
