I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

Dagen H

This is Stockholm on September 3, 1967, the day Sweden switched from driving on the left-hand side of the road to the right. (Dagen H just means “H day”; the H is for högertrafik, right-hand traffic.)

Swedes had resisted the change for 40 years, even though their Scandinavian neighbors drove on the right, and most Swedes had cars with the driver's seat on the left. You can't make out the details in the photo, but I'm confident that every single driver is looking grumpy.

Posted for no particular reason -- it makes me smile, and it is a fair representation of how things are going at the office these days. I had hoped that I had done my last Windows/Microsoft Office upgrade but alas that was not the case.
