Blog is on pause, but please do enjoy my tweets :)

Colors of autumn

Despite the flu that coucht me, outdoors are great at the moment :)

VR ja uusi uljas juna-aika

Ymmärrän että VRn rahtipalvelut eivät ole olleet kovin kannattavia, mutta onko syytä poistaa loppujakin mahdollisuuksia lähtettää tavaraa..

Seinäjoelta Rovaniemelle ei nykyaikataululla saa enää lähetettyä tavaraa muilla kuin keskellä yötä lähtevillä junilla. -Laita siinä nyt sitten vanhukset raahautumaan maakunnasta keskellä yötä asemalle..

Mutta VRn ansioksi täytyy mainita, loistava lippujen varauspalvelu puhelimessa: 0600-41900. -Netissä sama palvelu on jokseenkin ärsyttävä, varsinkin kun olet naputellut konetta kolme minuuttia, olet maksamassa ja sitten kone ilmoittaakin että PC-pistokepaikkaa ei ole saatavissa. -Sitten toistat hampaat irvessa saman operaation.
Toinen ansioitunut puhelinpalvelu VRllä on automaattinen puheentunnistava aikataulutiedotus numerossa 0307-0906.

Että sellaista..

Marketing stickers and protective films

I'll make a list, in a same way as listeners do in YleX's morning show. Not that I'm going to listen it so much anymore. -I really can't listen much more Maria Hintikka's comments where she tends to have knowledge, but sadly doesn't..

Anyway, in the centre of Kamppi mall I saw a piece of restaurant equipment still protecting film over it's sheetmetal back, which faced conveniently to the window. -This reminded me of some other cases where cover materials hurt your eye:

4) So .. sheet metal parts still having the protective film on. (Whos job, manufacturer, installation or user?)

3) Stickers on electronic equipment placed in a marketing purpose. People tend to think them as a part of the product.! (I even remove the 'i'-labels from Iittala glassware. In case of 'i-lasi'-serie, I wouldn't. The design Included the stickers)

2) Protective film on mobile phones displays. (The film is there to keep the glass clear for the user. People seem to be more interested in the resale value than good visibility)

1) But the following can only happen in Laihia -the stingiest place in Finland- where I come from.
It was 20 years ago, when the size of your farm was determined which Toyota model you bought from Rinta-Jouppi, which still is a Major car dealer around there.
My friends dad bought them "a little bigger" model for their family. And they drowe years with the plastics still attached on the side panels (doors)...

-No wonder this is such a issue for me ;D

Back to north

I'll leave Helsinki for now on 8th of september (Fri).
The summer was great, but it's still nice to get back home.
-Finish the studies, get rid of the summer-tummy and see how people get used to the brand new Department of Arts.
The sad thing about this is that the building is just 100m from our flat, so I can't excercise anymore on the way ;)

It seems that staff hasn't updated pictures since the outlining of the building, so here's one of my own.
