Very nicely done, although a better quality video would be nice to have:

Diana now started at KUL doing a "schakelprogramma" (conversion program) in Information Management so next year she can start the course she actually wanted to do this year but got rejected… Hopefully we’ll pull through with 2 years of only one person earning anything…

I’m still not very convinced any of the administration at the KUL is actually in any state that would stand a 10-point checklist of how things should work…

Good luck to my little studentje! 🙂

Pimp my PC

Last week I spent some money in "gamer-izing" my computer case. It’s a nice Silver Lian-Li aluminium thingy, a bit less nice-looking because of 2 white/beige Plextor DVD & DVD-RW front bezels… So I spent some cash via Ebay on 2 nice aluminum bezels , a nice thermometer/fan monitor display , a few Akasa blue-led fans and a sidepanel with plexi so you can see inside the case (woops, some cleanup needed ;)).

Friday we had some time to kill at Mediamarkt , and I ended up walking out with 2 Samsung SyncMaster 920N 19" TFT monitors… Now I really got the über-PC 😉 (Unfortunately I already have a dead pixel on one of my monitors, so I’ll have to go back to MediaMarkt some day soon).

Executing natives

A funky dialog box from $program, courtesy of The Daily WTF:

 Could not find a native to execute. [ OK ]

 A bit harsh perhaps, no?

Via IRC, a project started by the Openminds people to demonstrate and test Ruby-on-rails (+ Google Maps) at Barcamp. It’s a Euro bill tracker, where people (like myself) enter serial numbers for their Euro bills, hopefully that same bill will come into other people’s hands who will also use the site and boom, a Euro bill flightplan is born. Some rough edges still have to be cut, but it’s already Web 2.0’ish as it is 😉 Let’s start tracking!

Update: Woopsie, forgot to mention the URL, it’s ofcourse 😉

Automatic key retrieval for gnupg

Prepare for another blog storm… first a nice tip I found on this page

Sometimes I use mutt to read my mail, which nicely autodecrypts and checks pgp/gpg signatures. But then I’d need to retrieve everybody’s public key, like the Ubuntu security etc (which I couldn’t find anywhere by the way), but no more! gnupg now automatically retrieves keys from the keyserver you specify just by adding keyserver-options “auto-key-retrieve” into ~/.gnupg/gpg.conf.

I don’t know if this makes it any less secure though… but WorksForMe(tm)
