Where do I go from here
Today was the last day at the media company I was with. I was only there for 3 months, but I was kinda of saddened to leave, even though it had partly been my choice to go.Its a real shame they where so far away from where I live. Well, far away is a real relative term in the Netherlands, where actual geographical distance seems tiny, until you factor in time spent in traffic jams, or trying to get connecting trains.. and the latter is still my case as I still don't have a drivers licence.If they ......

My recent and future blog usage - "Action Blogging"
Usage of my blog has been sporadic the past few weeks. This is mostly due to not being able to effectively blog at work, because for some reason, Blogjet is not able to communicate properly through our proxy. Probably for the same reason RSS Bandit wont collect feeds here, so I use Bloglines for my RSS browsing at work now. I have actually opened a call on the issue, and the network guys will be looking into it when they can; I told them it was ultra low priorty. But the guy agreed that if it was ......

Toothpicks and Floss
Oke… so I, and millions like my dont floss or use toothpics enough, and we get to hear about it every visit to the dentists…Well on my way back from work today, Andy Ihnatko pitched a rather good idea to me, curtisy of the brainfood, in which he basicly got his flossing done while waiting for his Mac to unfreeze, just by keeping the floss on his desk. Coincidentily, he also learned to play the ukulele this way.So today I actually went and bought some floss and toothpics (first time in my ......

Techdirt:Companies Find IM Saves Them Money
Techdirt:Companies Find IM Saves Them Money While companies that promote IM monitoring software have been going around trying to convince companies that using IM at work is bad, it appears that most companies know better... or simply don't know enough to care. It's now estimated that 85% of businesses use instant messaging in some manner, though, that seems quite high. Does that apply to things like Mom & Pop retail shops? However, more interesting is the fact that some are actually trying to ......

A slighty different take on password policy
Life of a one-man IT department – Mike McBride After my experiences today I'm reconsidering the way I look at password policies. I had to go around and install the new drivers for that Canon copier/printer today on about 15 machines. The install involved installing the Canon LPR port, installing the print driver, restarting, and then entering the Department ID information for the print job accounting functions. So I would sit down at a PC, run the installers, and ask the user to enter their ......
