You know it’s new year’s eve…

…when the local pole dancers stop tak­ing money from car­pen­ters but instead hand it back in order to get their win­dows cov­ered with ply­wood. Happy new year everybody.

[DK] Værktøjet i orden?

Com­put­er­world, I er ikke just spæn­dende i forve­jen, men hvis der ikke er flere pressemed­delser I kan paste ind som egne artik­ler, og bevæger jer ud for at skrive selv, så sørg lige for at jeres interview-ofre har noget spæn­dende at sige. Man er i sin gode ret til at bruge nøjagtig de værk­tø­jer man vil, hey — måske de egner sig per­fekt til opgaven…men det er jeres opgave at overveje, om det kan have nogen værdi for andre overhovedet.

Talking with your customers

Minor changes in the Base­camp pric­ing struc­ture (which is just fine and not the point), com­ments from the cus­tomers. While old news in the won­der­ful com­mu­nity of the inter­web, that ‘mar­kets are discussions’-thing sure is some­thing, huh?

Blog redesign, episode 10

Haven’t had time to tin­ker with the new blog design for some time now, but upon yesterday’s dis­cov­ery of Favatars, it was a pleas­ant sur­prise to fin a Fav­i­con MT-plugin over at Gemal’s today.… On a related note, I recently put in a captcha-test on the com­ment pages; I’ve been hit hard by com­ment spam­mers lately — they made a big mess and my host started send­ing wor­ried emails.

Kitchen AXers beware

A few sec­onds after I turned on the microwave, the music stopped play­ing and my iTunes came to a stop (which I’ve expe­ri­enced before when the AXes don’t behave as planned). The microwave oven and the AX is both just put on top of the fridge — radi­a­tion fuckup?

Back to my roots with my pocket full of cash

After 9/11 that cer­tainly isn’t easy, but I’ll let you in on my secret as I actu­ally stole the idea from some of the big (Dan­ish) play­ers in the busi­ness, Jubii and B.T.… With­out ruin­ing the over­all graphic design of your page, a sim­ple logo in a colour you don’t con­trol, gen­tly takes over your back­ground.

Congratulations, Microsoft

You’ve suc­cess­fully made the worst pos­si­ble browser on the mar­ket the most pop­u­lar, turn­ing nor­mal peo­ple into slaves and web devel­op­ment into a painful game of “let’s see if we can find some way out of hav­ing to throw in tons of stu­pid, lit­tle IE-hacks instead of spend­ing time on real devel­op­ment”. On some projects, I think I spend about the same amount of time adjust­ing my orginal design for the IE users (aka ‘the real audi­ence’), mak­ing design­ing a lot less fun and fig­ur­ing out what to charge the client a big fat joke.

radioSHARK

You can adjust your record­ing set­tings eas­ily, just as you can plan record­ings, repeat them and have them auto­mat­i­cally added to your iTunes radioSHARK playlist.… Haven’t played with the time-shifting fea­ture yet, but basi­cally you just set the size of your buffer, and you’ll then be able to pause Lille Lars while you’re on the loo.

On Sony, Kottke, DRM and the bulldog lawyer approach to doing business

Sony, Apple etc: Please remem­ber that you’re in a damn for­tu­nate sit­u­a­tion when you have peo­ple all around the world talk­ing about you — good or bad — long­ing for your prod­ucts, try­ing to guess your next move, prais­ing a lot of the stuff you do, keep­ing your brand alive. We all dis­cuss, engage in con­ver­sa­tion — how come you think you can act com­pletely dif­fer­ent, com­mu­ni­cat­ing through gun­slinger lawyers, expos­ing your fear of not con­trol­ling a sit­u­a­tion that’s really not that bad, but that of course might show room for improve­ment?
