Server Maintenance of 2013
My server mostly keeps to itself, chugging along in my apartment storage space, but sometimes I order new parts for it. One such part was the picoPSU I bought several months ago to replace my totally overkill 650W PSU. Essentially, I wanted to repla...

Midsummer Grind
Here's my latest project: !Sanded down keys It's taking me a lot longer to sand down all the keys with 180 grit sand paper than I originally planned, but a few more hours and I'll be ready for paint. Having kids though, I might not be able to comp...

The End of May
The blog has been silent lately but i certainly have not been sitting still. About a month ago I started to remake the administration area of the blog into something a bit more fashionable (today it consists of a few input boxes and a "publish" butto...

Pictures!
I've been hacking away at the blog again and made a little nifty photo uploader for the admin area. It resizes the image on the client (browser) before uploading it with Ajax which is great because now I can upload directly from my phone without worr...

4 Hours of Markdown
Wow, that was kind of exhausting. I've completed my rewrite of all my blog posts into Markdown. Somewhere in the middle I found why my inline HTML didn't work and that made my old posts look almost acceptable, but the syntax highlighted source code ...

Group Pressure
In a totally unoriginal move I'm now starting to wean myself off Facebook, starting by deleting the Facebook app from my phone and tablet. Since almost everyone else in the tech sector seems to have done the same thing at least once, I don't feel th...

OMG New Certificates
One might wonder where I've been or what I've been up to these last couple of months. One would be right to wonder why I, so close to the one year anniversary of this blog, suddenly stopped writing. The truth is kind of embarassing. I created a ...

Old But Not Dying
Tuesday the 25th of September 2012 marks my 30th birthday. Even though I might not be fresh meat anymore, I haven't forgotten about my blog. I've just been busy (raise your hand if you've heard that one before). * I've been planning an article ab...

Jackrabbit
I've finally received my new laptop. It's not the one I initially wanted (the Lenovo X230) since that on costs a small fortune in the configuration I wanted. Well at least it costs a bit too much here in Sweden with all the taxes and what not. Anyway...

Weekend Getaway
I'm leaving for Gothenburg in a couple of hours for some all-weekend-hacking-codapalooza-marathon-event-thingy (A.W.H.C.M.E.T?). It's going to be awesome! Also, I'll get to enjoy the company of some great friends and some great minds (not at all mut...

Screw You Ubuntu - I'm Going Home
Ignoring a short play date with Red Hat around '95, my first Linux love was Slackware. Slackware was fast and awesome but it somewhat lacked in the package discovery department. I installed most things from source and after learning about all the ba...

The Month of No Content
If not for this year being a leap year, there would have been no posts made this month. I plan on doing better. I also hope on getting ill a lot less in the months to come....

I'm Not Dead...
... it's just a flesh wound. Jokes aside, I had planned to make a post last Monday about some HTTP HEAD/GET/POST and header request stuff I've done on the blog recently but something got in the way of me completing my work. I still plan to do it wh...

TODO 2012
Between my trip to the west coast for Christmas and my office being jammed up with boxes, there hasn't been that much developing going on for me in the last few weeks. I have, however, not been able to stay away from it completely so a few nights ago...

Feeding the crowds
For a while now I've been trying to decide between ATOM and RSS for by blog feed, and yesterday one of our company's owners asked me for a feed to my blog so that he could consume it at our new company web site. I've finally decided to create an ATO...

Santa Lucia
The time left before my holiday leave is running out fast and I've got a ton of stuff to do at work. To top it all off, this entire week is filled with urgent stuff to do, when I do manage to get myself home in decent time. I apologize in advance fo...

Broken Archive
Turns out I broke the archive yesterday when there were suddenly two months to render posts for. It was a simple array indexing problem and now it's up and running again....

Oh Crap: Redux
The commenting system had stopped working again. Christ, I really need to pay more attention to it. It's probably been down since at least Thursday. On the other hand, I managed to remove my old CouchDB views without crashing the server. I can keep ...

Refresh
I've done a fair bit of CSS and HTML work today, so you might need to hit F5 and refresh your cache if the site looks weird. =)...

Stupid admin
Sometimes I go to bed at night with an open ssh session running the server in the foreground. If that times out, so does the server. I really need to pay more attention to what I'm doing. Sorry about the down-time... \*ashamed\*...

Programming Flu
This weekend I've been at home with some kind of wierd illness. At first I thought it was bacterial tonsillitis since that's what my daughter came down with right before I left for Øredev. But now I'm thinking it's something viral. Not in the...

Oh Crap!
I just realized that comments had stopped working. I had forgotten to upload the new JavaScript file with the SyntaxHighlighter code removed after I implemented it server-side. Silly me. Comments are now working again....
