The text of the page as it is shown on the photo is unreadable, but the zoom-function is excellent and easy to use. If I flip the phone sideways, the page re-adjusts itself and use the entire width of the screen for horizontal resolution: 480px, which actually doesn't require that much zoom to be readable!

It's a remarkable piece of technology that is easy to use, though it might require high technical skills to troubleshoot if something happens to not work.

The snag I ran into was that iPhone refused to see my WiFi. It appeared invisible, even though the signal strengh was three times (and even higher) than any other network around that it could see. I had to sit down with my girlfriend's laptop and plug it into my wireless accesspoint for some troubleshooting before figuring out what the problem was.
Apple's troubleshooting help was useless for my case, and nowhere else on the first number of pages of Google did I find anyone with the same problem.

Anyway, I managed to locate the problem:
When naming the network, you can't use any exotic characters like the Scandinavian letters 'å', 'ä', or 'ö'. This causes iPhone to ignore the network, and it doesn't help forcing the phone by manually enter all the necessary data.
Once I renamed the radio-network, everything worked like a charm.

If you're a Firefly fan, you need to see Joss Whedon's Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog before they take it down (rumored it will happen today, Sunday), if for no other reason than to see Nathan Fillion as Captain Hammer.

ETA: "I don't go to the gym, I'm just naturally like this" was an awesome line.

EATA: Okay, this is even better:
Captain Hammer: This is so nice / I just might sleep with the same girl twice / they say it's better the second time / they say you get to do the weird stuff.

Hammer's Groupies: We do the weird stuff.

Meh, I was dragged to presbyterian church today. Surprisingly, it was kind of nice. The music at least was somewhat harmonious and the minister wasn't that bad, either. Less Jeysus talk and more about life in general.

And, surprisingly, no "gimme your money" at any moment.

I just hope my mother isn't serious about my joining the youth group...

In order to celebrate my 6000th post on this forum, I have an announcement to make.




I got married today!


All single women, weep in despair as I'm now totally spoken for...
(Dave, when are you going to implement blinking text into the forum code?)


Pictures from the event will be posted (almost) as soon as I get them from our designated photographer. (He needed an excuse to buy a Canon EOS 40D, and I provided one for him: "You have to take some photos at our wedding...")

The ceremony was 8 hours ago, and my wife is sleeping soundly now after an exhausting but excellent evening.

WOW! Congrats, Mab. I hope you had a blast. What sort of ceremony did you guys decide on? Actually, it can wait. Stop posting here and go enjoy your honeymoon with your new wife!

It was a secular ceremony performed at City Hall, no longer than required by law.
Ok, it was a few minutes longer than required, as the official related to us (and the witnesses) the purpose of the minimalistic ceremony, and why there was a secular ceremony available to us.
