Wireless LAN

Guess where I am typing this from. I am chilling in my bed, planning to go to sleep in a few minutes. My laptop is on the sheets, and no wires are running to it... WTF?!? Yup. This morning, my Linksys Wireless Access Point arrived, which means that I can now surf the Internet on my laptop whereever I want around the house. Cool!

Boom Chicago

Wow, what a theatrical week it's been. Wednesday Hans Liberg, and yesterday (friday) Boom Chicago.

Joining the Blog community

Wow, finally. The past few months I have been running around with the idea to add a blog to my site. Blog is short for weblog; a log on the web. You're looking at the very first entry in my blog right now. Blogs are one of those hypy things that are actually quite cool. You can add quick updates to your site without touching much HTML, never mind FTP tools and other dirty-hands-type webdevelopment stuff. I chose bBlog for the job, since it's free, open source, and has some pretty cool features.

I had to develop my own template, though, to blend bBlog into the site. Which actually...
