It’s a sunny day outside

and life is good.
(now if only I didn’t have to work today it’d be perfect)

This is just a quick entry to let everyone who was wondering where I went know that all is well.
To be continued…

Howling at the moon

The mind works in mysterious ways, I still don’t get why you sometimes dream the way you do. It can be unsettling at times, waking up covered in sweat and totally out of it. It’s also always puzzled me why you can still remember it vividly when you wake up but it fades so quickly in the hours afterwards.

Evo X

Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X
Well, everyone needs to drive, some of us a lot. I’m currently driving an old Mitsubishi Galant, running on LPG. But, if I didn’t have to drive 40-50000km a year I know which new car I’d love to get my hands on: The new Evo X.
It’ll beat the shit out of any Ferrari, Porsche or Lamborghini and is a lot more comfortable as well. And there’s room in the back for the kids, hehe.
Best… car… ever!

Show me the monay!

Ok, I admit, lazy blog day.

Ducktape to the rescue!

All work and no play….

Last.fm

Last.fm
Ok, I absolutely adore Last.fm, it appeals to the statistics whore in me. It’s also a great way to discover new music. For those unfamiliar with it, you download a program which tracks what music you listen to. This is then turned into statistics you can view on their website (all RSS powered, so you easily add it to for example your blog). Recently played, weekly charts, fave bands, you name it.
It also lets you see music you may like as well, based on what it knows you love. And you can see a list of other people with a similar music taste.
Anyway, the list goes on and on, check it out if you’re a music nut.

And, now we also have a last.fm group for X111.com members:
http://www.last.fm/group/X111.com
Join it! If we get a group of people on there it will generate a weekly chart based on what we’ve all been listening to, which in turn could be fun to add to the site.

How I hate thee.

Mission server

Mmmm, threads
The second Xeon is in, and it’s yummy to see 8 threads like that. Ordered 3 harddrive trays, so now all I need is 3 harddrives and it’s Thunderbirds away.
Still trying out a bunch of different Linux distros. OpenSuse 10.2 was nice but too desktop focused and a bit of a mess with updates, Fedora Core 6 felt surprisingly solid, now it’s on to Gentoo.

Bits ‘n pieces

Amiga Workbench tribute
Ah, the memories. Excellent AJAX mockup, fun to play with and think back to ye good old days.

If you updated to WordPress 2.11, start updating again to 2.12 right now because apparently their server was comprimised and it contained malicious code.

Using Apple’s Mail.app in Tiger? Go here and check out the tip, it’s made a huge impact on my installation, no more delays opening folders.

Heh.

Original Apple desk, too small for me, but it’s something new. Don’t ever put a fish in a barren tiny tank like that though, that’s cruel.

Silverstripe, Open Source CMS. PHP5, MySQL & AJAX goodness, looks interesting.

Work in progress... not home!
Trying to get all/most of the new code working before I start on the eyecandy.
