I’ve been doing a couple two-week projects as a freelance developer. It’s quite fun, and it’s good training to do development projects on such a compressed time scale.
During the first day or two, you have to make sure that you’re in agreement on the specification. Then you have about a day or two to design the thing. That leaves you about three or four days to code, before you have to start wrapping up, iterating with the client to check if there were any...
I’ve been trying to gather who’s doing OpenACS stuff in Denmark. The list so far includes:
- Simon Carstensen
- Steffen Christensen
- Guan Yang
- Thomas Madsen-Mygdal, which seems to have co-founded buyingexperience.com and hang out with Guan, but I don’t know how much he personally has to do with ACS.
- Web Publishing with Databases course on the IT University, being taught by neducate...
Someone recently named someone else a butt-licker in my presence.
Somehow, the term stuck. A butt-licker? Doesn’t sound like the person I want to be.
During the days that followed, I’d time and again watch myself, watch my words, and wonder whether what I was saying could be interpreted as butt-licking? Maybe it was butt-licking?
What is butt-licking, anyway? I’m guessing that throwing insincere compliments at someone to try to please would characterize as licking butt....
I was excited about this company when I first heard about it. It was so unlike anything else I knew. The company had a voice, a vision, and a mission. A place in the world. A reason for being.
The voice was Philip's, and he would tell you things as they are. Or at least as he thinks they are. Or, as I found out later, as he wants you to believe that he thinks they are. But...
Ahh, the Joy of Installing a New OS
If you’ve ever messed around with installing a new operating system on the computer that you need for your work, you know how scary that is. You never know if the box is going to boot at all, whether the data you had on your hard drive are going to still be there when you’re done. And what if the backup won’t read?
Trying to get Windows and Linux to dual-boot is even worse. Nobody enjoys messing with the boot sector. And besides, if you...

When you simply want to find something very specific on the web, loading up a web site, clicking a few times to find the right form, then filling it out, and clicking the button, can be a little cumbersome.
To relieve the burden a bit, I’ve created a handful of useful shortcuts that you can type directly into your browser’s address bar —or if you have the address bar placed on your Windows task bar, you can just enter them there, at any time.
They all work like this: You...
