If you want to be literal about it (and I think you should in this case), Fiskargatan translates to "Fishes street" which sounds very friendly to me.
"Fisherman's street" would be Fiskaregatan, but my guess is the 'e' has been eroded by time and rapid pronunciation.
Icon for obvious reasons.
"It happens to the best of us: one minute you're raiding and pillaging on the Pontic-Caspian steppe, the next you're settled down with a stone age woman, have a mortgage on the hut and 2.4 kids."
That sounds like what might happen to Cohen the Barbarian and the Silver Horde...
Don't spoil anything, I have only read up to the beginning of "The Last Hero"!
From Electrek (El Reg's source):
"Apparently, the problem wasn’t due to a lack of knowledge on how to handle a crashed electric vehicle, but because of the state of the wreckage. Ronald Boer, a spokesman for the firefighters, said:
“If the car was on four wheels, the fire brigade normally has no difficulty to turn off the batteries. However, this car is completely destroyed, hampering the recovery. In this situation, you never know what can happen.”"
I suspect milk floats don't go off country lanes at what from the pictures looks like "adventurous" speeds...
To us, at my company at least, a thermostat is something which has two states; on or off (i.e. "not warm enough" or "warm enough" if it is set up for heating).
Controllers are our devices which have a regulator (of PID type) for calculating a suitable output, proportional to the difference between set point and actual value.
That is why I made the distinction, even if everyday people don't.
They surely do.
I work for a company in the building automation industry, and we have such products.
You would simply set the Set Point to 22.5 degrees and the dead band to 2.5 degrees (although that is an unusually large dead band).
This is of course not a thermostat, but a room (or zone) controller.
I am sure there are a number of tricky situations that prevent a really self driving car for quite some time.
The first one to spring to my mind is the north of Sweden (and neighbours of course) during winter, where the entire road and the road banks are white except for the occasional 1.5m tall, 350kg moose lurking by the side of the road waiting for a chance to jump in front of your car and subsequently through your wind screen.
"För att avskräcka de andra" if you want to discourage or "För att uppmuntra de andra" if you want to encourage.
It should be noted that there is a difference of opinion between the young man and the city council whether he actually cooperated when the breach and malware was discovered.
Oh, and it should be "kronor", not "kroner" for the plural of the currency.
The Nespresso pods are recycled as metal containers.
Once your country has a functioning recycling system, it is no hassle at all.
Living in an apartment building in Sweden, I just take the Nespresso pods and other metal containers out to a small recycling house next to the house where I live and put them in a bin for metal. The plastic, newspapers, cardboard, glass and food leftovers all have separate bins.
