Who you gonna call?

In San Francisco, the zombie apocalypse (which we all know will eventually come) is already a real thing. It's big business, so to speak.

The Mission

The Mission. I love this neighborhood. It's noisy, busy and obnoxious. And the Mexican food... ahhh the food...

The perfect Tuesday

Waiting for the bus after a full day's work. It's sticky as hell. 90% humidity feels like Alabama. I'm tired and longing for a cold shower...

Thanks for reading this far.

Getting ready for...

Yep, we're doing it again, walking the Walk. I think we've walked it every year since 2009. The 6-mile walk is fun and it's for a good cause. Got to get the camera ready :-)

AIDS Walk 2017

We walked the AIDS Walk today, and as always the Golden Gate Park was packed with participants in the warm weather.

Good Saturday morning

It's 9.30 in the morning and the Grand Lake Farmers Market is already starting up.

Everything has its time

Hm... If you'd ask me, I'd go for some ice cream instead, guys. Right about now. A quick ride to Bi-Rite, anyone?

The Sunset

While Sarah's in LA, I'm taking the opportunity to visit Trevor in the Sunset. And while there I can't resist climbing Grandview Park to get some nice pictures. The street you see stretching all the way out to Ocean Beach is Moraga Street.

California Summer

After my 2nd interview today I hiked the trail between Moraga and Lafayette. Exciting AND hot. Gotta love the rolling Contra Costa hills! :-)

Yesterday, Steve tried out the two modes of the Vega FE in some quick tests. Any difference between Pro and Gaming? Well check it out. AMD's got some splaining to do...


Some potential?

We're checking out some new real estate this afternoon and wifey is excited :-)

Stealing attention

The attention signs on BART are simply hilarious.

Playing it rough

We got a $2.91M bid on the house yesterday. That's hell of a lot. But Sarah's playing it rough. Not a single penny under $3.0M, she says. And who am I to disagree :-)

All color fits all

A typical SF artifact. A bench on 9th avenue, Inner Sunset, San Francisco.

Cleveland Heights, Oakland, CA

Good Saturday morning. You guys wanted to know what our temporary rental house in Oakland looks like. Here it is, if you can make something out of it behind all the foliage. It's in Cleveland Heights, on Wesley Avenue.

Lago grill taqueria

Lago Grill Taqueria in Oakland has only one single table with 2 chairs. It's simply a hole in the wall. But the burritos are great. Gotta love the Mexican tamarind soda.

Heavenly colors

Such beautiful tree on 18th street, Mission district, San Francisco. Hardly any leaves, only flowers.

Debate this

Debate what? San Francisco, Berkeley or Hayward? Or is it the detour, perhaps?


Big Brother is in town!

My brother Lars and Susanne from Sweden met up today at Mama's in North Beach. Great fun. The lunch was sponsored by our good ol' father :-)


The newly snuck-outs

The wedding party is at full swing. But the newly-weds are nowhere to be found. A classic.

A gorgeous Saturday morning at Lake Tahoe. Perfect for the Big Day, Jason's & Jill's wedding day.

Aged, like a fine wine

I've never been to Montpellier, and probably never will. But all the devs are in my age. Including Ancel. Gotta give them that.


Good Sunday morning

A sleepy, rather silent late Sunday morning in Sacramento, CA.

From Sarah's phone


I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream

So what do you do on a sunny warm afternoon in Sacramento, when your wife is babbling on the phone with some friend and you just want to go grab that already overdue ice cream? I don't know. Staring at your own phone for awhile, maybe. They have such a huge and prominent place in our lives anyway, don't they?

From phone


Man's best friend

After the hearing today we went to the Sacramento SPCA for a short visit. Sarah's friend Kathy has a great love for their work, especially for the dogs.

From Sarah's phone


OK, here we go...

Jay is back in California and why not start fresh with some Intel rant. Is the X299 launch a simple cash grab? Is Intel panicking? Or wtf is going on in Santa Clara?



Yes, it's the whole second floor. Everything up there needs to go. This is going to take us all day. And all tomorrow.

Union street festival

The Union Street Festival is rocking the Cow Hollow this weekend. Unfortunately Sarah and I have to clean out her winter rental in Livermore... Dang!

Computex 2017

Jay and Nick has been in Taiwan on the Computex 2017. Here's their vlog:


More job to do

Hmm... looks like we need to unclog the rain gutters before the weekend after all. The exterior needs to be tidy before the showing.

Super Tofu Burrito, por favor

The burritos at El Buen Sabor in the Mission are not the best in town, but more than decent. I go here whenever I have the chance.

Happy Memorial Day

Tomorrow Monday is Memorial Day. Freedom isn't something you should take for granted. It has to be conquered. By love - not force.

Morning coffee on the morning ferry

There are snacks to have on the Sausalito-San Francisco ferry. The cabinet on the right is full of very nice donuts. Perfect on a muggy morning with some decent coffee. That and some Thursday thoughts on the 25 min ride.

Where pizzas live

You guys ever been to Tony's Pizza Napoletana in North Beach? Of course you do, because the pies are just incredible. All of them. However, if you've never been to this pizza heaven Omar Mamoon wrote a crash course in regional pizza styles for SF Chronicle yesterday. You can read it HERE.

Home sweet home

Jake's been playing around with his drone again and dropped me a few pics of our beautiful Sausalito.


BART faces funding problems with proposed infrastructure cuts

Trump vowed to spend a lot on infrastructure when he ran for P. Sadly the new budget proposal speaks another language. If all goes according to his plans, BART will suffer from slashed New Start fundings, totally needed to get their asses moving with their much needed projects throughout the Bay Area. Yesterday, a storm raged the Twitter: SFGate


Back to Mordor

A new Middle-Earth game is announced. Check the trailer below.


Presidents Day?

Hmm... it's Presidents Day today. I think I'll put my celebration on hold for a while. Maybe remember the good old days when this country had a real leader in the name of the real America. You know what I'm talking about.
