bee's birtday

today is the birthday of bertboerland, the owner of this site. happy bee day to me!

free willy!

the next to weeks i am "free" from work.. well, i promissed to finish a RFP so i will do some work on mon/thu from home and have a meeting on friday i couldnt drop, but appart from that, i am free. so the next two weeks i will do some heavy DIY on my house, striping paint and starting painting. whenever i feel like getting behind a keyboard, i will try to snug out of the work.

i planned to upgrade my distro on my home machine (1/2 a day work with downtime) and will upgrade //drupal to 4.2. this is sometimes rather easy and sometimes rather painfull. expect another day downtime later next week. i also need to make a new logo for willy cause i am planning on using a new default theme or at least colorpalette (once again i say, read my lips: no more poepsite!)

on the upside, i will do some more blogging of bookmarks waiting to be pushed in the willy database...

cygwin, power to the desktop

gimpwhy o why.. why didnt i do this before. i installed //cygwin on my windows desktop, added some libs and have the power of linux on my work pc (yes, it is dual boot but i *need* m$ for my work, dont ask..). that was one step towards CLI power. than I read //using remote apps from cygwin and started using X from my small pentium 199 webserver/dns/firewall/databaseserver/dhcp server/etc..

now i can use //the best draw prog from my linux box on my wifi powered laptop, having a good load on both systems! why didnt i do this before, now i can use my X stuff from my laptop as well. xbill! all legal, all GPLicenced software (except my laptop OS Smiling ) without too much trouble.

you can get blind from it!

das af iiinow there is //proof! you can get blind from wearing a tie.

The small study in New York measured the pressure of the fluid in the eyeball in a small group of men before and after they attached their tie.

willy: hasnt wear a tie since the tie incident with the late dutch prince claus.
