When North Korea and Vatican City really wanted Britain to undo the Brexit. A closer look at the petition signatures

After the surprising Brexit- the day Britain decided to leave the EU- a petition for a re-vote made headlines as it overnight grew from 25 votes to over a million. I kept an eye on the petition page over that weekend and watched the number of signatures/votes climb to well over 3 million votes. I […]

Read of the week:  The DevOps 2.0 Toolkit

Next week’s read: The Docker Book: Containerization is the new virtualization This week I took on a book of considerable size, The DevOps 2.0 Toolkit by Viktor Farcic, a Senior Consultant at CloudBees.

(Not so) Stupid Question 290-291: What is OWASP, and what is the WebGoat project?

I’m in lovely Budapest right now with work (Mindcamp). Every year Mindcamp does a company conference (sort of) with the employees. Last year was Toscana, this year Budapest. The idea with the week, aside from building a stronger common culture, is to have a week where we can spend time working on ideas that can […]

The Outlook bug in v 16.0.6568.2025 that deletes emails (on the server)

My dad just called frustrated after having found out that all his emails were gone (after a certain date if I understand correctly), and a call to the hosting provider (provider of the email server) confirmed that there was no chance to retrieve them. Besides the deleted emails, which was a problem as we own […]

What if I suck? Confessions of a WTF contributor by Iris Classon

Today I received fantastic news, something I’ve been waiting for since…well, since before ‘all that happened’. The biggest weight I’ve ever had on my shoulder has been lifted and I’m excited to have almost made it to the other side. This year, 2016, my dear, is going to be awesome. I just know it. I […]

(Not so) Stupid Question 284-287: What is cyclomatic complexity, how do you calculate it and what does the score mean?

The other night I was reading a book on microservices (I’ll post a review later) and there was a part in book that mentions cyclomatic complexity. I’ll admit right now that I didn’t know what that was. I could make some good guesses, but that was about it. So let’s see if I got this […]

Saving RDP sessions with PoSh

I honestly can’t remember if I blogged this or not, but since I can’t find the blog post I will just assume that I didn’t. I thought I’d share a few lines of PowerShell for something rather handy. I seem to be constantly RDPing and since I mainly work and navigate from a shell it […]

Conditional breakpoints in Chrome developer tools

Continuing on the previous post about conditional breakpoints I should mention that you will find similar capabilities in many debuggers, for different languages/platforms. One other example would be in Chrome when debugging Javascript. Here is a gif for you, breaking bad with conditional breakpoints (funny, yes). (Or maybe it should be breaking good?)

Conditional breakpoints FTW

During some debugging today at work while fine tuning an image comparison algorithm one of our developers needed to set some conditional breakpoints instead of breaking each and every passing when iterating over data. While thinking aloud the question of how came up and I showed how this can be done in Visual Studio. Thinking […]

The arrows on my Pok3r (AHK script)

I’m finding myself in a small white room, packed with a large crowd of very young German girls and one very popular (and tanned) Aussie. My ‘Nerds rule’ sticker isn’t making me any new friends, but that’s alright- I’m just trying to prove to somebody that I certainly *can* (if I *really have to*) stay […]

GeoLocation .NET 4 and up- requested WinForms example

Here comes a quick and dirty post based of a question I got on Twitter today on how to fetch geolocation in a WinForms app. I haven’t done this in a while, but if I remember correctly you can do this: First add the System.Device assembly (Add Reference => Search for ‘Device’) And make sure […]

I’m doing some Uni courses to get a BCS with an international profile and one of the tools we use for coordinating assignments, email, discussions and more is Fronter. I’m not a terrible big fan of the system, I used it for two years when I did my programming degree but I never got comfortable […]

Putting together my dream office

I’m a programmer. A passion, borderline obsession. My office has become that getaway island where I spend most my time, dreaming, thinking and coding. Creating the ultimate work space has become a priority. I want to feel energized and inspired when I sit down. Earlier this year I tweeted several images of setups I really […]
