When I was on my way home today, a car drove right into a pidgeon, hurling it 5 meters through a trail of feathers and onto the bicycle track right in front of me.
So I stopped up and looked at him for a while. At first he seemed like he didn't see me, then he started trying to get away but he could only move his left wing, everything else seemed broken or at least not his to control anymore except for his head.
Then after some time, he just stopped fighting and died.
Actually I was quite relieved that he died all by himself. Otherwise I would have to do it. Then I carried him away from the track, onto some grass so that no-one would fall over him on their bikes or something.
And this man was heading right towards me, talking on his cellphone, with a dog on his leash. He didn't seem to have noticed even though there were feathers everywhere and me standing in the middle of the bicycle track. (Oh yeah, the man was walking on the bicycle track instead of the pedestrian side walk too.)
His dog probably would've eaten the pidgeon if I didn't warn him to pull a little away from it when he walked by. I wonder if he would have done anything to the pidgeon if I hadn't moved it away.
I'm not expecting people to cry over a stupid pidgeon getting himself killed, but at least you can help out putting it someplace where kids wont find it. Of course I did that already, so no one else would need to do that, but they could at least just try to look as if they cared instead of walking by, pretending that the pidgeon and I never existed. I felt like a crazy freak removing that carcass. Imagine if it hadn't died by itself and I would have to kill it too.
Yesterday I found a runaway dog, also on my way home, he was dead scared of me, so I couldn't get near him at all. He didn't have a neckband either, so I called the police, said where he was.
No one else had called them to say it was missing so they told me to leave it and they would come catch it in 30-60 minutes if the owner didn't call them.
He was running through peoples gardens and around near a really trafficked road when I found him. He seemed to have been running about for a while, totally disoriented. He had probably went out to find a lady friend but gotten lost on his way home. Probably scared by the traffic. (And hell, I wouldn't let him go back to that heavily traficked road. He could cause a real serious accident.)
I haven't heard from the police whether they have found the owner or captured the dog yet, but I'll assume it's fixed.
I wonder what strange thing will occur to me tomorrow when I head off from school again.

If this was Taiwan, I would head out and buy me some nice night market food right away, perhaps with a little drink without too high sugar content from seven-eleven if I wouldn’t find an alluring enough booth selling drinks at the night market itself.
It’s 12:33am here and I could really use it. I’m doing assignments and am set on getting them done before heading to bed, but I’m really hungry and all the drinks and snacks here in Denmark is carbohydrates, bleh. I don’t like carbohydrate-rich food.
So going back to Taiwan.

Have I ever told you guys about the music I've made some years ago? Did I have a blog at that time?
Well, it's probably obvious to everyone that I've been letting my blogs wither a bit. Especially this one, but the one at boonbot.com too. Guess I haven't felt much like writing recently. Well, I better not do that for too long periods of time if I want to ever become famous, eh? Anyway, if you feel like listening to some of the stuff that came from my messing around a few years back, here's one that I like: It's not professional in any way obviously, actually I've been taking some piano lessons that I kept dropping out of from boredom as my only musical education. You probably can't even get a year of total practice if you put it all together. Anyway. All I can give you for now is youtube quality:
Drones Advancing - By Sander
Actually I just did this for a short while, making my own music. It was fun. I kind of miss it but I haven't been taking my time and often get caught up with something else before I can get to finish a track when I try to start again. My cousin still does it. He started a little before I began to experiment, using the same software. He has started up a website to host his stuff now. The website is called Puresound.dk. Oh yeah: And he calls himself a variety of names. EventA, Boesgaard, Marindoom. Watch out for those in the future. One of those might be a great name in trance music all of a sudden. Here's a piece of his music that haven't gotten on the website yet:
Infinity - By EventA. You should try and check him out.
Me? I'm doing schoolwork mostly and then playing around with techgame, boonbot.com and ads.zunavi.dk whatever I feel most like doing from day to day. Also I've been wasting away lots of time on Starcraft II and movies and I have really no idea... oh yeah! Reading mathematics. Damn. Well, hope I can soon start being a bit more visible on the internet again. Just for my own sake, hehe. Nah. I can see on my traffic statistics that a few people still seems to be coming back once in a while. Thanks guys.

Since I don't really use this page for very serious blogging-things anymore, I might as well just tell you that I have been up to a lot of Starcraft II gaming. I've been a big fan of the first Starcraft but kind of stopped playing it when it grew really old. Besides I was never that much of a tactical genius. Now that Starcraft II is out I'm a happy collectors edition owner. Not that there's barely a difference between collectors edition and a normal one but at least I've pre-ordered it all right.
Beat the single player part already (today) and have been playing a lot with my friends. We held a release party even. One day after the release, lol.
Anyway, maybe I'll write a little about the game sometime if I feel Blizzard isn't getting too damn much attention already. Will depend very much on how busy I will be with the game though.
See? We are the number ones in our division! Wicked.
In a few days, or with a bit of luck, tomorrow, I should write something on boonbot.com too. Something with a little more content. Seems traffic there has pretty much died out, I guess it needs some serious SEO that website. But anyway, see you. And drop a line if you're playing Starcraft 2 as well.

I've been trying a number of ways to drive a little bit of new traffic to my page boonbot.com. Decided on searching the web a bit for websites offering free advertisement in exchange for having their ad put on your site, thus creating a network of people sharing ads. There's a number of possibilities but it's not a very big business it seems. I couldn't find any page that seemed really professional about it.
Many of them have some crazy return ratio such that you'll have to display two ads for every one time you can have your displayed somewhere. At a few of them, it's more fair, but none of those I have tried were any good. Some networks will display almost as many of your ads as you've displayed of theirs but wont drive traffic your way. I have been displaying ads from the service "Spottt" for a while now. I have shown 117 ads and generated 5 clicks in a few days. My ad was shown 90 times and not clicked once and many of the sites I seem to be exchanging with are placing their ads in places where visitors will rarely see them, and that's even against the rules of the service. It also matches me up with a bunch of totally unrelated sites. I write about culture, food and travel and it puts up ads for websites on how to take care of your dog or fish.
So I have decided to try it out myself. Since it doesn't seem like there is any good big website for creating a decent free advertisement exchange network, I might as well try it out. Not that I expect great things of it, but if I can get it rolling, it might be fun.
I put up a website on my old domain zunavi.dk (don't go there, it might be broken.)
It's on the subdomain http://ads.zunavi.dk where you can find the website. I just made it in a few days so it's not aesthetically pleasing and needs a lot of features, but I made it work fine and put up ads on my website boonbot.com.
Here, I'll put up an ad unit here and you can see it:
If you think it sounds interesting and want in, go see if you can figure out how to use it and be welcome to write me some feedback here on my blog. Link below:
