I have been running Windows 8 now for about 6 weeks, and a couple of things REALLY annoy me. The metro start screen and the Windows-key “start typing” experience.

A week ago I found a great solution for one of those problems: Skip Metro Suite.

I want to tell you about my most awesome experience with nature ever. It is lengthy and you can skip the text and just enjoy the pictures, if you want.
After the volcanic eruption on Fimmvörðuháls on March 20th 2010, I have been very excited about this. Maybe it is because I come from a country where the most violent natural disaster is the occasional flooded basement.
24 hours after the eruption, the roadblocks were cleared, and I went with my German friend Sebastian and his girlfriend Christine to see it. At that time, we were only able to get to about 8km distance from the eruption, but it was none the less quite spectacular to watch.
SuperGym, the gym of the world strongest couple Benedikt and Gemma Magnusson, hosted a deadlift max competition today.
On top of the deadlift max, a new type of competition was introduced: Wolf Games. It was designed by the always smiling SuperGym regular Ulvur (Wolf in Icelandic) and consists of deadlift hold, one armed deadlift and deadlift for reps. You can read more about the event on SuperGym.is.
I only had time to attend some of the competition, but I did manage to take a couple of pictures.
“The Wolf” himself, deadlifting 320kg.
