Apple videostore stupidity

I don’t get Apple. They make great products, have a great iTunes store, and make sure their products work with iTunes. Sounds pretty good, even if you are terrified of something called ‘vendor lock-in’. (which I am not) Okay, so now we have something called: “Apple TV”. It breaks every rule of intelligent commerce and […]

when using suphp on FreeBSD

always remember to do the following after upgrading PHP, but before restarting apache: cd /usr/ports/www/suphp make deinstall && make reinstall when using eaccelerator do: cd /usr/ports/www/eaccelerator make deinstall && make reinstall too. Saves you a LOT of headaches 😉 [ad]

The first Release Candidate has hit the FTP servers. I’ve been running -PRERELEASE for a while now, and haven’t found any problems so far, not on real-steal hardware, nor […]

Windows market share drops below 90%

Net Applications reports that for the first time ever, Windows market share has dropped below 90%.  According to sources, this is mainly because Mac OS X is grabbing a stronger footing in the global OS market with 8.87% share. Linux, the iPhone and the PS3 gain a bit too, […]

no such thing as a lucky break

Count your blessings, but what if there are none? Yesterday, since it was a saturday and I have a large amount of spare time in the weekend, I decided to get busy on one of those things I never have the time to do during the week: laundry. (yay!). So, I loaded up the washer, […]

Small update

Just a little update, since I’ve not been around for a while now. A lot of changes in my life. As you know Petra and I where getting a divorce, and that was final in june. Then the waiting game started, because Petra needed a place of her own. Well, she and Femke moved out […]
