Gallery: Skånes Djurpark 2013 jan/feb

A collection of some of the photos I’ve taken in Skånes Djurpark during the last 3 weeks. It’s a really lovely old park dedicated to the preservation of the nordic animals – unfortunately they have huge financial problems at the moment and risk closing in a month 🙁

When the coordinates are in place, zoom out on the map, and you will see your locations marked on the map 🙂

I’m not much of a fan of “polluting” my servers with things compiled from source – makes reinstallation boring. But sometimes there just isn’t much choice.

I found a nice guide for installing Asterisk on squeeze.

For most of the time the guide was fine for Wheezy, but I had to install some additional packages
