iPhone apps won’t launch

Just a quick fix for people who are experiencing that all of the sudden, without any warning, they can’t start their downloaded apps on their iPhone.

Here is what happens:
– you click on app
– app starts loading
– title screen for app is shown
– app doesn’t start but you end up on the Home screen

Here is the fix:
1. delete a free app that you may have on your phone (NOTE: it must be an app downloaded from AppStore – I don’t think apps from downloaded from Cydia or Rock will work).
2. download and install a free app from AppStore
3. launch the app you downloaded in step 2
4. try launching any other app that didn’t work before

You can try skipping step 1 above if you want.

I think that this problem only occurs on jailbroken iPhones and/or ones with pirated apps on it. Anyhoop, this fix worked on my jailbroken (but not SIM unlocked) 3G phone with OS 3.1.2.

Update on swine flu vaccine Pandemrix side effects in Sweden

The Swedish Medical Products Agency (MPA) released on November 12, 2009 an updated compilation regarding reported side effects of the A(H1N1) flu vaccine Pandemrix.

This compilation continues to detail allergic reactions along with neurological reactions. There is also reporting of side effects experienced by children who received the vaccination. The MPA recommends now that children with severe allergies or even children who have family members with sever allergies only receive vaccinations after consultation with a specialist.

There are still no evidence to indicate that the 8 people who have died a couple of days after taking the vaccine passed away because of taking the vaccination. These people were suffering from chronic diseases.

The swine flu situation in Sweden mid November 2009

Today, 12 November 2009, the Swedish Institute for Infectious Disease Control (SMI [Swedish abbreviation]) released an update on the current situation with the A(H1N1) in the country.

According to the press release:

The activities of the new flu A(H1N1) continued to rise during week 45 [Nov. 2-8] and the number of cases verified by laboratories doubled again. During week 45, 1233 new cases of the new flu were reported to the SMI compared to 776 from week 44.

Almost all counties reported an increased number of cases compared to week 44. In total, 4133 cases of the new flu verified in laboratories have been reported in Sweden. In particular the reports have increased for children between the ages of 0-4 years. The number of cases in proportion to the population remained the highest in the county of Norrland. The spreading of the flu was less in the south eastern part of Sweden. The SMI estimates that 150 000 to 390 000 people have had the new flu in Sweden since week 38 [Oct. 14-20].

Medical treatment has been reported for 74 patients during week 45 with the below age distribution:
• Under 5 years: 18 people
• 5-14 years: 7 persons
• 15-39 years: 30 persons
• 40-65 years: 15 persons
• Over 65 years: 4 persons

According to estimates made by the SMI, the number of people in hospital are probably more than what have been reported.

The full report provides detail analysis and an official overview of the swine flu situation in Sweden during the first week of November 2009. It also provides a summary of the situation in other countries. You can read the full report under “Read More”

Update on swine flu vaccine Pandermix side effects in Sweden

The Swedish Medlical Products Agency (MPA) released on October 29, 2009 an updated compilation regarding reported side effects of the A(H1N1) flu vaccine Pandermix.

The only side effect that was “unexpected”, and unreported by Pandermix, is the allergic reactions that have occurred. Although the report only says that 1,4 million doses of the vaccine have been delivered to Sweden, not how many people have actually received the inoculation, a total of 500-600 side effects have been reported with symptoms ranging from head aches to deaths.

There were five reported deaths all together that may have been linked to the vaccine. The deceased persons were all between the ages 54-74 and suffering from chronic diseases.

Problem med awstats på Binero

På senare tid har jag haft problem med att komma åt statistiken genom awstats för mina sajter på Binero.  Jag får upp följande felmeddelande:

Error: Couldn’t open config file “” nor “awstats.conf” after searching in path “bla/bla”: No such file or directory

– Did you use the correct URL ?
Example: http://localhost/awstats/
– Did you create your config file ‘’ ?
If not, you can run “” from command line, or create it manually.

Check config file, permissions and AWStats documentation (in ‘docs’ directory).

Den officiella lösningen från Bineros support är att logga in i kontrollpanelen, gå till Avancerade Inställningar — Plugins — AwStats Statistics och där installera om programmet för domänen i fråga. Detta påverkar inte själva statistiken men den nollställer lösenordet! Så det är starkt rekommenderat att man efteråt ändrar lösenordet till något vettigt.

En observation som jag har märkt är att det inte funkar att starta awstats om jag anger “www” i adressfältet. Kör jag http://domä så går det bra men kör jag http://www.domä så får jag upp inloggningsrutan men därefter får jag felmeddelandet ovan.

Hoppas att dessa observationer hjälper andra i deras felsökning.

The truth about the Swine flu vaccine in Sweden

With more and more uncertainty, information and disinformation circulating about the A(H1Ni) virus, various vaccinations and various vaccination programs it is becoming increasingly difficult to figure out what is going on. The global media and various conspiracy sites will soon be jumping all over Sweden where one person has died soon after receiving inoculation for the Swine flu and several other people have reported various other side effects to the vaccine.

Under these circumstances, however, I find it important to document the facts of what have been happening, since there will be plenty half-assed blogs echoing tabloid articles without any research or analysis.

The Swedish Medical Products Agency (MPA) released an official update and compilation of the side effects of the Panadermix vaccine on October 22, 2009. In this post, I have translated the update from the MPA which, amongst others, details that the person who died was a man with serious heart conditions and previous organ failures. Not to be down played, however, are the severe flu like symptoms and reactions reported by several health care staff who have received the vaccine. These reactions have been reported in Swedish media but are not specifically mentioned in the MPA report.

Demise of the dollar

The Independent published an article by Robert Fisk on Tuesday October 6 called “The demise of the dollar” adding weight to the rumors that have been going around about an upcoming attack on the USD by the Chinese.

As a coincidence (or not) the dollar value of gold jumped by around 50 dollars in one day.

Below are some links that deal with the issues and their consequences raised in the article a lot better than I ever could.

A dollár összeomlása

Kedden (október 6-án) az Independent (magyarul “Független”) Brit napilapban megjelent egy cikk miszerint a kínai gazdasági hatalom immár olyan erős, és az amerikai világhatalom annyira gyenge hogy többek között Kína és az arab országok titokban arról tárgyalnak hogy az olaj kereskedésnek a dollártól való függését hogyan lehetne megoldani.
