An ass deserves to be kissed

OK, after spending some time getting the hang of this here little blog, I grabbed the bull by the horns and installed WordPress on a server for that summer-school project I love so much. What struck me is how mind-blowing easy it really was. I have next-to-no clue about php or MySQL, but Continue reading


20 minutes to break into my own home…

Weeelll… It’s been a while since I’ve last posted (10 days, geez) and visit count’s showing it. In some way what happenned tonight might be a blessing in disguise to save what’s left of this blog. But it sure didn’t seem like that to me earlier this evening.
