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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

More on Japan and autogenerating assets for a Windows Store (and Windows Phone) application

Hello everybody! Japan is treating us nice and we have gotten to see a lot of really cool things and nerding out big time. Today I was bedridden due to a massive migraine so I didn’t get to go to Akihabara (shopping district for video games, anime, manga, and computer goods) but we will go […]

Replies from China

Its 4:15 AM and I should be sleeping as I’ve slept little since I came. I’ve battled a dodgy VPN connection for 3 hours to lessen the load and the painful slow RDP connection to my Azure VM (to access all blocked sites). I’ve spent the day licking my virtual wounds, mostly to my ego […]

I broke under pressure and decided to remove the previous blog post where I asked for feedback on code I had written for a tech interview. Reasons are the following: Many expressed concerns that I was sharing content that should not be shared (although the unnamed company gave me full permission) Few bothered to read […]

VLog Episode 005: Work and deciding to quit

Sometimes you have to make difficult decisions to get to where you want to get. For me work isn’t just work. I don’t want to go to work, clock in and clock out, making those hours, those dollars, paying those bills, and then look forward to those holidays where I can finally – FINALLY!- live. […]

Notes from the beginner DSLR course

Since some asked how the Nikon course was, here are my notes. Sorry about the poor state, I took the notes on my phone and made the drawings on the phone as well 😉 I know many of you developers are into photography and I take many photos to create my own stock for the […]
