Play Reversi!

I added a Reversi (a.k.a. Othello) game to my site. The AI will improve in a few weeks, once the genetic algorithm I've written has had time to optimize the parameters.

Site update

There's a new page about my favorite illustrators, a page about my Java games (although it's difficult to get Java applets to run in browsers nowadays), I've added a cake recipe (in Swedish), and there's a new image in the portfolio.

I've made some corrections to the site code; some minor functions are still missing, but as of this update, the site seems to be working more or less as it should, and I'll start concentrating on adding more content.

Also: It turns out I had forgotten to include the file responsible for saving portfolio image ratings. Go rate my portfolio images!

I bought some comics!

I received a package today! For the first time in a long while, I've ordered comics from Yesasia and Amazon, including Åsa Ekström's new book about culture clashes and misadventures in Japan. Now all I need to do is to learn these stupid languages.

Site redesign

I decided to switch to a new layout before everything was ready, partly to force myself to finally get it done, and partly to stress myself out for no good reason. Come back in a week or so, and I'll have much more content up. You should probably be celebrating Christmas now anyway.

Do the Real Thing

Do the real thing and stop doing fake alternatives.

Consider one person who wrote to me saying she turned down a job working in French. She didn’t feel her French was good enough yet. So instead, she planned to listen to podcasts at home every day until she was ready.
 
You know what would have helped her get good at French? Working at the job in French.
 
Or consider another person I spoke with who wanted to get better at writing music. He had come up with a complex analysis project. He was going to do a deep dive into past hits, figuring out what made them great. In all this complexity he ignored the obvious, real thing he should be doing: writing more songs.

Where Do Eels Come From?

The German biologist Max Schultze, lying on his deathbed, observed, perhaps wistfully, that he was leaving a world where “all the important questions . . . had now been settled.” All of them, that is, “except the eel question.”
(...)
People caught eels in brooks, rivers, lakes, the sea. They also caught them, inexplicably, in ponds that dried out and refilled each year, and that had no access to other bodies of water. They couldn’t help but notice that the creatures seemed to have no ovaries, no testicles, no eggs, no milt. That they were never observed to mate. 
(...)
When this last metamorphosis happens, the eel’s stomach dissolves—it will travel thousands of miles on its fat reserves alone—and its reproductive organs develop for the first time. In the eels of Europe, no one could find those organs because they did not yet exist.
(...)
That European eels come from the Sargasso Sea remains the official word of science. And yet no one has ever seen Anguilla anguilla mating anywhere, or so much as set eyes on a mature eel, living or dead, in the Sargasso Sea.

Why Cars Rarely Crash into Buildings in the Netherlands

Today's culture shock video: A Canadian stays in the Netherlands for a year and a half, realizes that during that time he hasn't seen a single car crash into a building, and finds that so puzzling that he decides to investigate.

Meanwhile, I've lived in Sweden all my life and I've never seen a car crash into a building. Crashing into buildings is ... not a thing that's supposed to happen.

tl;dw: In North America, streets in residential areas are built for speed, while in Northern Europe they're built for safety – drivers are assumed to be imperfect, streets are built to accommodate that, and if there is an accident, there is an investigation to find out if the street can be made safer.
