Not much happening lately. I was home in Arendal last week to visit my family. Arendal is situated in the very south of Norway and is a nice harbour town. It was good to see the folks again. I had my Silvia with me and used it together with my brother's rocky. He has bought it from me and now he is going to borrow my siliva while he studies computer science. I'm nice huh? He seems very interested so I think I can expect good cappas when I visit him at the campus.

I repaired a Rancilio MD50 grinder today. The upper part of the doser (the star) had come loose. It was an easy fix, just press down and tighten hard. The MD50 is a *robust* and powerful grinder, but it won't win a beauty contest. Personally I think the doser lever is a bit to heavy and slow. It works fine, don't misunderstand me, but I'm a fan of the light and smooth levers like on the mazzer super jolly (not the mini which is sluggish too).

My brother is here now so I think we will go downtown and visit some of the very nice coffee bars we have here in Oslo, like stockfleths and java.
