bah! Im more for steampunk itself than the victorian style. Im all for the machinery and GOGGLES. god Brass goggles in all their shapes and forms are just adorable ;) The same goes for Aether/Clockwork-backpacks  :)
No one have mentioned Sciefiction bokhandeln in stockhom (gammla stan to be exact) yet, they got some nice books. Both literary and roleplay.

There is also a science fiction-bokhandeln (SF-bookstore) in Gothenburg, but I think all concerned already know that :)

There is also a bookstore in Lund with some good stuff, both fantasy and sci-fi.

That one's not close to the size of the one in Stockholm though...

Next in line for säpo registration... Hello, ladies and gents. Thought I'd better say hi.
And while I'm here, could anyone recommend a good place to buy textiles? In Gothenburg, maybe? I've been through the ones close to me already. I mean, how hard can it be to find something nice for a vest?

I know of only one textile shop of sufficient size, and in GBG, but I can't remember it's name, and I'm no good with street names. I think it might by Övre Husargatan. It's right at the edge of Annedal, close to Olivedalsgatan. Don't know if that is any help at all.

Well, it's a start at least, something to keep in mind the next time I go there. Thanks!

Myrins textil. They have a more outlet-ish store in the Sävenäs area also.

I doubt there is a swedish word for it, I don´t even know what it is. But it sounds latin.

Warwolt: I'd say find a second hand store, and buy an old clock.

August_Cobb: I doubt there is a swedish word for chronovisor, no. Also, a quick read of the wikipedia article tells me that the chronovisor was a pretty large thing. How do you plan on translating that to something that fits on your goggles? I'm looking forward to seeing pics!

Kronovisir? Kronoskärm?  ;D
Thanks for the idea, might just have to snatch a clock. Damn I know we had one of those old things before but I guess we threw it!

well it's not very big, and sits on the right side of my goggles, and is connected to a antenna which absorbs time masses and load in to the extra lens ^^

Instead of transmitting chrono-waves perhaps its a form of aerial that transmits data to a chronovisor in your lab? And as its travell in time (and space  ;D) you dont have to worry about the length. So the goggles recieves information and sends it to the Chronovior then its sent back  ;)

En fråga varför talar vi inte svenska i tråden? Är det för at inte skrämma bort icke-svenska medlemmar?

ungefär. tråden är ju en allmän diskussion som alla andra, så alla ska kunna vara med.

SV:En fråga varför talar vi inte svenska i tråden? Är det för at inte skrämma bort icke-svenska medlemmar?

EN:A question, why don't we speak swedish in this thread. Is it because we don't want to scare non-Swedish members away?

SV:ungefär. tråden är ju en allmän diskussion som alla andra, så alla ska kunna vara med.

EN: More or less. This thread is a public discussion like the other, so everyone should be able to participate.

I do think the moderators would be annoyed if we started speaking in Swedish, seeing as they would no longer be able to moderate us. It also keeps swedish chef jokes to a minimum.

Ah, so I guess the thread is more like  "Thread o sweds" than "Thread for sweds"  ;)

Indeed. I'm just rounding us all up, so we can exchange info that is relevant to our locale. And also, if we ever plan a meet.

I´m suprised at the number of swedes on here. A scandinavian meetup could be a definite possibility. I do wonder where all the norwegians are though.

I think (atleast thats how I see it) sweden is very open to ... well everything. We aren't to much for "swedish" stuff and more of international things. Might be so in other countries but I get the feel most countries want their own stuff rather than others. Or its just that sweds love steampunk... I don't know.

A steampunk meetup at a Con somewhere now that sounds really interesting!
