Sweden says no to EuroSeptember 15, 2003
The Euro referendum in Sweden is decided. The voting ended Sunday 18 PM GMT and the votes were counted 3 hours or so later.
More than 5.4 million out of 7 million votes were cast. Over 56% of the voters said No which means that Sweden will NOT adopt the Euro (€) as its currency. The Yes backers might have been hoping for a late surge in support due to the killing of Swedish foreign minister Anna Lindh but that didn't happen.
I was at the office most of the weekend, catching up on the current project. It is behind schedule, mostly due to added complexity compared to previous projects. This application is using an XML/XSL front-end and several Open Source frameworks. Castor and Xalan being some of them. In theory it will be easier to support multiple devices and languages but we are paying a cost in development time.
I guess the better way would have been to be more organised and efficient in order not to have to come in during the weekend but that's easier said than done.
Carla is in Roma for a couple of days anyway so I was not missed at home. Well, I was a bit, Ginger likes spending the weekends with us. I will have to make it up with a run or two in the park with her during the week.
