The whoco5.gif facepalm emoticon

whoco5_mindreAbout twelve years ago, back in 2004, I was co-admin on a discussion forum about Laucher X. Laucher X was a third-party app launcher for the Palm handheld platform. The forum software we used was Invision Power Board. Bundled with the installation came a set of smileys, and my co-admin also installed quite a bunch of extra smileys.

But still we found we were missing a smiley for doh. I decided to draw one, because apparently we really needed it. So I started with the regular smiling smiley and added the smashing arm and squinting eyes. Some time after that my co-admin uploaded the doh smiley I had created, to Invision Power Board’s own discussion forum, in case anyone else would be interested in adding it to their forum. Because it was in the same style as the official smileys for IP Board it seems to have gotten popular and spread from there. Now it’s visible in a lot of forums all over the Internet. It’s current name, whoco5.gif, isn’t the original though, and I don’t know what it means.

In one of Sweden’s major “alternative” discussion forum my doh smiley has gained quite a reputation…

Honey harvest of 2014

honungsbild_2014

A couple of weeks ago I harvested the honey from my, now single, beehive in Eftra, Sweden. I got about 32–33 kilos this year, which is a record for me since I started with beekeeping in 2010. It will result in at least 70-80 jars, so I’m hoping people will be interested in buying a few. I have also, finally, designed labels for the jars, so I won’t be as lazy as previous years and just sell the honey without any branding.

The label, by the way, is printed on 250 g Rives Tradition and fastened with a linen string.

Make sure you check out The Apiary Map, or Biodlarkartan if you are in Sweden, to find your nearest beekeeper. Perhaps they can sell you some locally produced honey!
