Scandinavian Awesomeness – Part 9

Dinner in the room was a great idea – and the pizza was really good. Their small is interesting though – think they’ve been taking lessons from the Americans. Neither of us could get through our own “small” pizzas (which were each 8 slices!). Early sleep, as both of us hadn’t had much water and were dehydrated….which wasn’t a good… Read more »

After checking in to Flamsbrygga, it was time for dinner – ate at the local Viking restaurant, which had amazing food and even better service 🙂 Ended the night with a white Russian for dessert! Back to hotel room to sleep, not really achieved due to rowdy bunch next door who kept partying through to 2am -.- Not super impressed… Read more »

Scandinavian Awesomeness – Part 7

Still in Trondheim – today was the more traditional museums 🙂 Started off with an exceedingly healthy breakfast of pancakes, maple syrup and profiteroles (very nom!) then a brief chill in the hotel room until it was time to head out, as the cathedral didn’t open until 11. Short walk to the cathedral, took some photos outside (as you can’t… Read more »

Got a good sleep then another awesome breakfast at Santa’s Village – no, I didn’t have the waffles 😛 Quick Facebook call to my Mum during breakfast – and a berating for lack of photos. Sheesh, be patient, you can wait ’til we’re home…or until we’re somewhere with a net connection that lets us do photo uploads at quicker than… Read more »

Scandinavian Awesomeness – Part 4

Early breakfast before checking out – seriously loved the huge tea cups. Also took my last antibiotic (yay!) so no more tablets through out the day – leg is looking way better! Packed up and checked out, saying goodbye to Helsinki. So far our favourite major city. The long drive to Joensuu (5 hours) was spent listening to the new… Read more »

Off to get Helsinki Card at the Tourist Info centre here in Helsinki, which was pretty close to the hotel. Damn good deal – 39 euro which gives you access to free public transport all through the city, access to all museums and access to a free tour. Definitely worth the cash. We had about an hour to burn before… Read more »

Scandinavian Awesomeness – Part 2

Boat ride was really calm – but very strange to be on a boat for extended period of time, especially to sleep. As Alex put it, it was like a floating RSL. Dinner was nice – smorgasbord style. Had the Swedish equivalent of potato bake…was WAY nicer than anything we’ve had. Also had Swedish meatballs, which were really yummy! Spent… Read more »

Scandinavian Awesomeness – Part 1

So, start of holiday – flight, Brisbane to Dubai at 9pm on Saturday night AEST. I luckily got the window seat (thanks to Alex), he was beside me and there was a lovely lady sitting beside him who was very patient with us, especially with toilet trips! Amazing food – I’ve got the menu and I’ll take a photo of… Read more »

Issue installing .NET 3.5 on Server 2012 R2

So – interesting bug. Built some Windows Server 2012 R2 servers for someone (because I’m just nice like that) and they went on their merry way. They then came back and said they wanted .NET 3.5 installed and would do it themselves, but they didn’t know where the install media was – because (as you know…or now know) a number… Read more »
