How difficult can it be?

November 17th, 2010 No comments

I really enjoy logical and mathematical problems, so when I came across the “world’s hardest easy geometry problem” I was quite excited. I mean, how difficult can it be, right? 180 degree in a triangle and you are set.

I dare anyone to try and solve the problem below: find the angle x. Sure you can measure the angle, but that is cheating. Grab pen and paper and let me see your “proof”; I would be very interested in comparing notes. I spend many hours for many days solving this, but then again, I’m not the sharpest knife in the draw.

World's Hardest Easy Geometry Problem

Update: I forgot to write, that you are only allowed to use simple geometry. No trigonometry is allowed.

Joining Microsoft

November 17th, 2010 No comments

Some great news on the job front. December 1st I’ll start as Senior Consultant at Microsoft.

I’m really thrilled about having been given this opportunity to work for the company, that more or less has made the technologies which have been a major part of my professional life for the past 15 years.

It is going to be challenging, but it  is also going to be an exciting journey and – without a doubt  - a lot of fun.

Family Gathering

November 13th, 2010 No comments

My sister and her family are coming to Denmark next week. This is going to be the first time in almost two years we are going to see them, and it is going to be great!

The kids are really looking forward to playing with cousin Anton and personally I look forward to “a night out” with my brother-in-law. Of course, it is going to be nice to visit with my sister as well :)

They are only in the country for 10 days, and have a number of “obligations” in form of people they have to see, etc. I just hope they will be able to squeeze us in a few evenings/times.

My good friend Mark is going to speak on DI in Malmø on 18 November. This is a SWENUG event. It is really great that the community is working across the pond so xNUG members from Denmark can go visit and vise versa.

As always I look forward to hearing Mark speak as he is one of the most accomplished presenters around.
