Collaborative playlists

A couple of weeks ago we talked about the excitement of getting music recommendations and inspiration from our friends and our ongoing search for delicious things.

Patching MediaWiki for fun and profit

Monday evening

Me and Rasmus are listening to our Russian friends and chatting about all the things we want to doooooo! Like see Rufus Wainwright when he’s playing on Dramaten, go to an after-ski party and defeat Per in billiards.
