Since I've been running behind on my Daily Photograph entries, here's one of #glowing #coals and #embers, taken on a warm evening in #August of #2015 in the #Netherlands. Unfortunately I can't really take these kinds of pictures here in northern #Norway during summer, as it doesn't really get dark above the #arcticCircle around now... something something #midnightSun.
Latin: Ribes rubrum
English: Red currant
Dutch: Aalbessen, rode bessen
They're starting to form on their shrubs now too, and with #midnightSun, they'll soon be ripe.
Today's Daily Photograph is taken through the window of an #aeroplane flying from #Norway to the #Netherlands back in #April of #2015.
It's an automated #HighDynamicRange (#HDR) merge by #GooglePhotos of 3 #AutoExposureBracketing (#AEB) shots taken with my #Canon #EOS1000D, and shows one of the #airplane's engines as well as the #sky and #surface below.
The packaging on this shipment was atrocious... especially considering it contained Li-ion batteries for my #xbox360 controllers...
I guess that's what I get for ordering from #BangGood.
Also, since it looks like these were shipped from the #Netherlands to #Norway, I'm surprised these took longer to ship than some of the other orders shipped on the same day...
It's almost half past 2, and this is how light it looks around here. No, not in the afternoon, but in the middle of the night. Welcome to #Bodø in northern #Norway, above the #ArcticCircle; welcome to the #midnightSun.
I should really try #Linux as a #desktopOS again...
Don't really want to muck with my current Windows install, nor feel like resizing partitions to make space for a Linux install, so I guess I should see if I still have a spare disk I can reuse for this purpose.
Or, finally order an SSD, even if it's just a tiny one, for myself to use as primary boot device. If only hardware here in #Norway wasn't so much more expensive than I'm used to from the #Netherlands...
Years ago I wrote this #blog post with suggestions on what to do while visiting the #Netherlands, with a focus on things I liked to do there as a native #Dutch person: https://blogspot.fixato.org/2013/08/things-to-do-in-the-Netherlands.html?s=mastodon
I'm considering getting an #ODroidXU4, but with shipping to #Norway, 25% VAT, import taxes and hidden handling fees, it's likely going to end up at more than double of what the #SingleBoardComputer actually costs...
I guess I'll end up just getting the far less powerful #RaspberryPi 3B+ just because I can get that #SBC straight from a shop without waiting for a month not knowing what hidden extra handling fees from importing will be added.
Fortunately the use of #Triclosan in products has been heavily restricted here in #Norway due to #EEA / EU regulations (even though Norway is not part of either): https://www.miljostatus.no/tema/kjemikalier/prioritetslisten/triklosan/
In less than 10 hours time, the local #Ingress community of #Bodø in northern #Norway will hold their first #FirstSaturday.
