Wow…

Monday, September 29th, 2008

It’s been ages since I last updated this blog. Oh well. I don’t understand why I have this blog anyway, things aren’t that interesting.
I’ve picked up airgunning as hobby and maybe I’ll write some stuff about that. I also took on another website to build even though I swore solemnly not ever to do that […]

Why I’m not going to build websites again

Spot the differences.

Forum post copyright

Wednesday, January 24th, 2007

I’ve posted something to a forum, and one of its moderators took the liberty of combining my post with another I made, and deleting parts of it. This changes the original intent and context of the post entirely, and all subsequent replies don’t make any sort of sense anymore. And all this without any kind […]

Multiple page blogs

Sunday, January 21st, 2007

I’m reading a fair number of blogs by now. And every time I add one to my blog roll, I try to at least skim through the previous posts in it. And if one’s particularly interesting, like this one, then I tend to read all posts. Yeah, I’m weird like that.
There’s one thing that annoys […]

Microsoft, if you want to do a small blogger a favour again, please consider sending me one of these.
Yummie.

2007…long time no post (again)

Monday, January 1st, 2007

Ah well, here we are…2007. A few new years computer related resolutions:

blog more

have a whack at VoIP, and Skype
(re)install Nexenta OS
lots more…

Now I need to actually do it, too

First attempts to watch YouTube videos on amd64

Sunday, October 22nd, 2006

Recently, Adobe released the Beta of Flash player 9 for linux. It only comes in a 32bit version, as there seem to be…issues to get a native 64bit version developed/built. Whatever. So anyway, I set out to use this new flash player to watch some videos from YouTube on my native Debian Unstable amd64 system.
The […]

Locked forums #2

Sunday, July 2nd, 2006

And to revisit the topic of locked forums, it seems more and more forums add another barrier before usage is possible: The requirement to “say hello” before the account is fully activated. I don’t see the use of such a requirement. It’s a stupid practice and should be abolished as soon as possible. Web forums […]

Locked forums

Tuesday, June 27th, 2006

I notice more and more forums requiring registration to view the forum posts. I’m sure there’s a reason to this madness, but it annoys me to no end. It also prevents indexing by Google, for instance, so all the knowledge shared on that forum will stay on that forum and will be lost forever if […]

Orkut account removed

Saturday, June 24th, 2006

I log in every once in 6 months or so…only to find loads of messages and other crap from people I don’t know in a language I don’t understand. It was fun, for a very short while. I deleted my Orkut account today. Good riddance.
