The perhaps greatest curse of this world is how everything decays. Wear and tear, aging. Everything withers, fades, falls apart and corrupts. The only thing humans create that doesn't require maintenance is thoughts, ideas. If it can be written down, or digitised and thus copied, it has a chance of escaping the jaws of time.
I just managed to stumble over Officeslang.com -- although I've seen most of them before, there were some funnies I'd like to share:
I got my new camera yesterday, a Canon PowerShot A620. It's brilliant. I'll post some pictures some time. Shortly after getting the camera and playing with it, me and my colleague, Andreas went for a waterside lunchbreak. Which we came to regret.
I don't remember when I last was up this early. It's a long time ago, anyways. I've been up since 3:30 this morning, so I'm feeling quite dizzy.
Right now, I'm working on setting up a new file server for the office. I'm going to deploy with Gentoo and SELinux. It's my first time with SELinux, so this is going to be interesting. I hope it works out.
So, we've finally moved into our new house in Gentofte (an up-scale suburb of Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark). We were finally done moving stuff around at 2 in the morning. Then I got a few hours of much needed sleep, whereafter I had to get up to return the van we rented to move all our stuff in. Then off to work. Work was as it usually is. Chalenging, demanding, rewarding. Good.
I'm so unfortunate to be using Microsoft Business Solutions Navision in my daily work. It is normally rather good for a Microsoft application, but look at it's latest trick. Yes, the sidebar has decided that it should take up the entire workspace -- even more than that, since the resize handle is not available either.
Some time ago, I wrote a small piece about TurboGears, with a link to a review I read on O'Reilly.
As you might have discovered by now, I've changed the theme for this website. I downloaded a theme named niftyCorners, and now I intend to customize it. I look forward to getting a design with a bit more character on this page.
Also, Drupal was updated yesterday, so I've updated all my sites to 4.7.1. It went like a breeze. Good job, Drupal-people.
So, I've changed webhosting-companies. Now I use TextDrive.
I won't go into a long story about what has driven me to this, but all I can say is that I've had a lot of trouble with hosting in the past, and now I've gotten to the point where I've realised that cheap hosting is... cheap. And for a reason.
So now I pay a lot more for it, but at least I'm sure it works the way I want it to. It's definetely worth it.
