Museumrailway

•24 March 2009 • Leave a Comment

I have become active at a museumrailway, erlier this month I passed the lowest safety requirement to be a ticket salesman/inspector or what is knows as a brakeman ( a person who manually brakes a train that lacks enough brakes to stop using just the brakes of the locomotive).

I became active last year as what is known as a TB – TågBiträde, that is a job that anyone can do without any special safety training. A TB helps loading and unloading of  “travelgoods” like bikes, baby carriages and some times large bags. We put all that stuff in a boxcar with a note saying to which station it should be going to. A TBs duties also includes changings signs on the train, destinations signs and “end signs”. The end signs MUST be put on the last car BEFORE departure, the reason is that a stationmaster can not report a trains arrival before having seen the end sign on the last car, if there is no end sign on the last car of the train when arriving to a station, there is a possibility that one or more cars might have got loose and may be on the track between the stations. There is one more duty for the TBs to do, and that is to sweep the floor of the traincars, not fun but needed.

OpenTTD

OpenTTD är ett spel, eller egentligen inte, OpenTTD är ett program med vars hjälp man kan spela Transport Tycoon Deluxe på moderna datorer oavsett om man kör Windows, Mac eller Linux.

Vad gör man då?

Man ska transportera saker och tjäna pengar.

Hur transporterar man dessa saker då?

Man använder sig av Tåg, Lastbil/buss, Båt och flyg.

Vilket är de roligaste att använda?

TÅG!

När man i OpenTTD bygger järnvägar kommer man i börjar att inte fatta mycket, det vanligaste att man bygger är en enspårsbana mellan städer för person trafik, men i OpenTTD finns det så mycket mer att göra med järnvägar, men för att kunna utnyttja alla funktioner som finns för järnvägen måste man lära sig hur man hanterar signaler. Det finns 6 olika typer av signaler, de enkla som endast visar grönt/rött beroende på om det finns ett tåg mellan den och nästa signal, de medel avancerade som består av tre olika signaler (försignal, kombinations signal och slutsignal (fel term, jag vet))  som tillsammans är mycket effektiva i kombinationer med stora stationer (tre spår eller fler). Till sist har vi de allra mest avancerade signalerna som låter tåget själv få välja rätt väg genom ett “växlings område”, dessa signaler kan låta flera tåg vara på samma signalsträckaså länge det inte uppstår några konflikter mellan tågen.

OpenTTD är det enda spel jag känner till där man måste titta på grafer för att kunna se vem som vinner, detta gäller särskilt för multiplayer läget.

Om du gillar RTS spel och inte testat denna pärla, gå till openttd.org NU

(NOTERA: för att kunna spela OpenTTD måste du ha tillgång till orginalfilerna från Transport Tycoon Deluxe. dessa finns lite här och var på internet men du får leta själv!)

Ha det så bra!

Pain

•01 January 2009 • Leave a Comment

This pain is unbearable, I have got air inside my stomach and it hurts so much!

Yesterday at breakfast I had a hard boiled egg which I boiled in the microwave oven. I think I forgot to boil all of the gases out before eating it.

I do not normally eat an egg for breakfast, and it was the first time I tried boiling it in a micro. Right now I am unable to breathe normally, I can not sneeze nor sigh.

I’m just waiting for the air to escape in the form of a burp….

If the pain is sill present on Saturday, I’ll go and see a doctor.

Oh, well could be worse….

This is the ” happy bridge”, when you walk across it it feels “happy”. It does not feel tired or anything like that.

Yawn…….

So tired/sleepy right now.

This is the last day of this year last lan party I’ll attend (as far as I know….) and I have to say that it has been one of the most awesomesause LAN parties ever for me.

They used DHCP, so no manual mucking about with IP addresses, just plug in the Cat-5 with RJ-45 and boot her up!

There is always a Direct Connect hub at this lan, and I had already hashed everything I needed/wanted to share ( total 200/300 giggs (far behind my friend, he had shared 1.2 Terra bytes).

We did not play any UT2k4 this time though ):

Well, that’s about what I can think of to write right now, with my head full of Caffine and not enough sleep, more than enough sweets and 4 days of dangerously high exposure to a computer monitor…..
