What's inside the new powerbooks... Permanent link to this post with (0 comments )
What would be the first thing you would do, if you got your hands on one of those beautiful twelve inch powerbooks from apple? Splitting it into atoms like this japaneese guy?

Living again... Permanent link to this post with (0 comments )

About to get back from the dead after days with flu. Still in bed though - hurray for 802.11* :-)

While surfing I fell over these new KDE 3.1 screenshots - why does linux-gui always seems incomplete and unfinished. Besides being really messy, there's a lot of errors to my eye. Look at the tabs on this screenshot - let's make some silver tabs on a grey background... yikes! :-/

.net makes it a little bit harder to switch... Permanent link to this post with (0 comments )

I'm one of those people who like's the new .net platform from microsoft. Yes, they're evil - but when it comes to an integrated, solid and yet rapid development platform I'm really impressed with .net! Of course I think they did some quite annoying things to get old-school Visual Basic-people to feel comfortable with developing webbased applications, but hey - it can be turned off or ignored. There's really only one big thing that's really annoying me... It makes it a bit harder to switch... and yes, that is switching to snow and silver as David beautifully mentions...

Getting/sponsoring a gsm-terminal Permanent link to this post with (0 comments )

Does anybody have a gsm-terminal (like a nokia 30 or a Siemens TC35) they don't use - or does anybody work at siemens or nokia or something and would be interested in sponsoring one?

Here's why: I already have code ready for making a sms-to-metablog/blogger api gateway - the only thing missing is a damn terminal. They don't cost much (around dkk 3000-5000) but I just don't have the money for buying a toy like that. Maybe we could team up ten people? Think about it - then we could update our blogs from our phone... It would be open for everybody. Hey - someone reading this blog must know some Nokia/Siemens people... Come on... pretty please with a lot of sugar? It's pretty much the same as Dr. Winer surgests!

(Basically it's a really old idea, I got with mygdal about two years ago... He also mentions it here, when talking about mobile picture blogs)

Umbraco will support MetaBlog API Permanent link to this post with (0 comments )

Good news! Umbraco - my soon-to-be-released content application platform - will support the MetaBlog API (maybe also the blogger API later - but right now I believe most on MBA) :-)

Paolo's weblog: First Safari feed back. Good views from Paolo on Apple's new browser. I don't know about tabbed browsing, but including a "wizzy editor" would be a nice feature, not to say a must have! With more and more applications being web-based (or driven) browsers not featuring some sort of rich text editing will fail.

Eric Schlosser in Danish... Permanent link to this post with (0 comments )

Fast Food Nation by Eric Schlosser has finally been translated into Danish - hurray. Now the big question is whether to order the original version on amazon for around 7£ or the translated Danish version which cost around three times the price... The good thing anyway, is that I got reminded about the book again - because I would really like to read it... (and guess what - I haven't been to a McDonald in over half a year!)

So close to being a real artist Permanent link to this post with (0 comments )

Brushing up GUI before release version 1.0 of my new baby, umbraco (which actually should be called version 3.0 or something, as the product has lived unnamed for quite a number of years and versions)... So maybe I'll be a real artist after all...

Umbraco is a tool (with a built in application server) for creating content-centered app's that interact strongly with users across digital media. It maybe be branded at first as an extended CMS, this will hopefully make it easier to explain.... don't know… anyway, it'll take a while before something like that has been written... it doesn't even have a website yet ;-)

Blogger and international characters Permanent link to this post with (0 comments )

Seems like blogger does not support danish/international characters in their rss-feeds... would be nice though if you could specify encoding in the xml-tag, then that would be solved....

Even worse - they do html-encoding so ampersants does not work either (or is it me...? could be!) Oops, my fault :-O

Closer to blogs at redmond? Permanent link to this post with (0 comments )

At the Webservice area of msdn, there is a list of blogs worth reading! Could this a step closer before we'll see official redmond-blogs? With no marketing-dep. editing/filter that is... nahh, still cool anyway...
