Impressed with WordPress 2.7
For an open source project the WP 2.7 release is significant enough. The dashboard (backend) looks pretty damn nifty and I just hope 3.0 will introduce an equally pretty frontend. I would NOT mind using that as my default theme!
yum update script
So the other week I have been working on my dedicated box, just to make it a bit easier to work with in the future. One of the things I was trying to understand and learn was yum update and bash scripting. So why not combine the two? Right.. This blog entry is the result, […]
Improving Gmail Security
In a few of my other blog posts I have already used the example of Gmail and https to improve security. But I feel with the recent improvements Google introduced that it is time to emphasize security and email again.
VOD: Criminal Minds
On a tv forum there was a topic created that new series have been added to the video on demand section. Including Criminal Minds season 01. Awesome! Turns out my ISP offers it, sweet! I’ve started watching them, and the quality is amazing, the episodes are really nice – despite that I’ve already seen them […]
Upgraded my ISP Account
A small update about my ISP account. I do not have an HDTV and won’t be getting one any time soon (unless I get lucky and get a load of money suddenly) so now that my ISP (UPC.nl) has introduced new accounts with discounts it was worth looking into it to see if I could […]
PageRank Went Down
Today I read on vBulletin.com that Google’s PageRank has been updated again. So I bothered to take a look. Let me start by saying that I do care and do not care about page rank. It doesn’t bother me a bit if a site has 1 or 2, or 4 or 6 or 10. But […]
Using my Mac Software
When dealing with data such as a video file, audio file, text document, spreadsheet and such, I have always been told to use a office solution of some kind. Something that ties things together. So when I moved away from Windows to a Mac solution I have purchased additional software solutions to replace for example […]
I Forgot To Blog Today
Oh my, so sorry. The other day I kind of implied I would make up for slacking, but I had a busy day, went to bed, woke up late, and continued my todo list. I run into the item of writing a blog and realized it’s already nearing midnight. Woops. I still have so much […]
Kitty Got Scared
Ok, I have to admit, I wasn’t so nice to Sasha, but it was funny!
CES 2008 has started and all the tech sites are going crazy over it. They’re posting the thinnest and largest monitor, the easiest new devices and the super cool technology etc. Personally I am not impressed, but I should be.
Secure Browsing Using FireFox
In an earlier blog entry I kind of promised to come back to explaining how I try to be more secure about how I browse using FireFox. So here it is. First of all there are two different ways I do this, one is on my Powerbook (laptop) which I bring with me and therefor […]
Catching Up on Christmas Dinner
Because I was enjoying (cough) the flu around Christmas I invited my parents and my sister over for a catch-up dinner. We’re just getting together and having a nice dinner. Nothing fancy. We’re ordering it from a catering service so no fuzz or anything.
