“I will send you a follow up email with your call sign and licence details”

This is about as bad as “your parcel is out for delivery”

🎉 Norwegian radio amateur licence approved as well

Show thread

(the response was in both written forms of Norwegian, plus English, but the official languages in Norway are Norwegian and Sámi)

Show thread

sent an email to a norwegian state authority and got a trilingual auto responder, which doesn’t even include all the official languages in norway :D

looking forward to logging every CQ call to stay compliant with irish regulations 🙃

Show thread

(Radio (IC-7100), powerpole distribution fused thing, powerpole connectors and crimper, 20/40/80 hamsticks plus magmount, and a magmount 2m+70cm antenna too just because why not)

Finally ordered what I think are the remaining components to start playing with HF radio 🎉

there’s project euler and advent of code and stuff but those don’t really scratch the itch i’m looking for, they’re more…algorithm puzzles

Show thread

back when i was first getting started with programming this is when i'd write an IRC bot, but i don't really use IRC anymore

Show thread

(1) it's the weekend
(2) even during the weekdays, i don't want to try to make $work switch to rust ^^'

Show thread

kinda want to write some stuff in rust but pretty much all my ideas are related to work stuff and i don't want to work on work stuff for several reasons

if/when i get irish citizenship i’m half tempted to do another deed poll and then just not tell norway about it, and have one passport with middle name and one without

Show thread

i’ve been tempted to change my name to remove my middle name since i basically never use it, but since it’s a family name that feels…more severe than changing first name?

Show thread

Meanwhile in Ireland I gotta look for the original law and then find all the amendments and hope I didn’t miss any.

Show thread

It wasn’t until I moved abroad that I found out how good lovdata.no is. It has all the laws (and statutes and stuff), with *all amendments applied*.

especially if it’s after they close the actual store so basically your only choice is to get in line for the drive through again

Show thread

getting the wrong order at the drive through is the worst

i would maybe use my middle name more if any systems handled norwegian middle names correctly
