Summertime

Although the astronomical summer already a few weeks there is, we haven’t noticed anything. Our weather could very well be the same as during the Spring, or even Autumn. Yesterday, I’ve been witnessing quite some downpoor here at nieuwegein, and we will not even start about last Monday… The one thing that reminds us of the fact it should be

A Spam-milestone!

However small my blog might be, I too am involved in fighting spam each and every day. My first line of defense in the ever-lasting battle against spam is Akismet, the WordPress built-in anti-spam plugin (when I’m to say plugin, when it is already built in…), and today a milestone has been reached! *start drumroll* 100 spam-posts have been stopped,

Acceptance

Today has been a big day in my, so far very short, career. My internship has been approved! I will be busy writing my masterthesis at Ordina, a leading company when talking about SOA and SOA-integration. My job is to write a thesis which not only will grant me a degree at my university, but one that will satisfy the

Still studying

While my last post was not so very long ago, it has been a little while nonetheless, and I’d like to update you all with my current occupations. As my very last exam is approaching quite fast, I’m really busy studying to get it all done. So, that’ll be it for now. After the exam all’s yet unclear, I will

New hardware!

Right, you’ve probably all been anxiously waiting for any sign of life from me, and here it is. Yes, I’m still here! Not only that, there have been some interesting new developments concerning my master-thesis (of which I will speak in a later stadium) and I’ve spent almost my entire holiday-bonus on some exciting new hardware. Within a short period

Updating the blog

Sometimes it’s good to go where everyone else goes. Note the very distinct ‘sometimes’. In the case of Google-ads it is, I think; so I’ve jumped on the bandwagon and installed my very own contextual ad. Somehow, my ad won’t come up the way I want it to (text only versus the currently displaying image) but anyhow: it is there.

Temporarily busy

Yes, my life being a student does have it’s rough edges from time to time. After getting graded an 8 for our seminar-document (which is kind of depressing considering the good comments we received during the seminar, and the bulky document we’ve come up with. I know, quantity is not quality, but we’ve tried to be as complete as we

One document to rule them all

Getting things done has to be, by far, the nicest thing a student can achieve. Today, roughly an hour before the deadline that is just what happened to me and my co-workers, we’ve gone final! Yes, you’ve read it right; our seminar document is now completed and ready for you to read and possibly even frown upon. Please click here

Frantic times

When you’ve been to college (of any form: MBO, HBO, WO, other) you probably know the drill: several hours before the deadline some frantic work is done to get everything in order to meet the final deadline set by your teacher. For us, this was just the case yesterday and today, however it wasn’t for the seminar. As our final

Yet another meeting

Today, we had the second meeting this week, this time it was about the documents we handed in last Monday. Our professor handed us some pointers to create better documents, and these will most definitely be taken into account over the next few days. I’m pretty tired right now so I’ll leave it at this, tomorrow there’s a great deal
