It’s time for another recipe. One that i only lately started perfecting and refine with various ingredients. These pancakes have become a substantial part of our homely sunday breakfasts. I used to make them exclusively for my wife when i was eating LCHF very strictly – but since these pancakes are so terribly delicious, i treated myself every once in a while – well, now it’s more like every weekend but it’s totally worth it.… Read more
So here’s the second installment of me blogging recipes. It is a big step up in complexity from the “Epic Schüblig” last time, but still fairly simple to make. Plus it’s vegetarian compatible and tastes delish. For those not fluent in italian, the title means “Large tubes with broccoli and nuts”.… Read more
Let’s not start with the clichés here. I already stopped smoking, changed my food habits and started doing sports last year, so this year, my resolutions are going to be of purely technological and work-related nature.
As i find “personal” resolutions a bit an old-fashioned and most of the time also very hypocritical – as i always strive to learn something while “on the job” – here’s some resolutions that in my role as a web developer I will take very seriously in 2014.… Read more
At last, I managed to finally put together my personal top 40 songs of 2013 and I’ve even written a blog entry about it.
I’ve always been a huge fan of music charts as a kid, avidly watching such 80s TV programmes such as “Ronny’s Pop Show” or “Formel Eins” or taping my favorite songs on the weekly charts of my local radio stations – which back in the days were pretty decent in their choice of music or at least they matched my current taste in music back then.… Read more
One big passion of mine has always been and will probably always be (i can safely say that now that i passed age 30) video games. In various forms and variations.
I really started out on the Amiga as a pre-teen, always loved arcade machines, especially on holidays in italy and at one point even tried so hard at a drawing contest to win an NES that i even won one in the end.… Read more
I’ve been a web developer for roughly 16 years now. I admit i haven’t been there from the beginning, but i caught a lot of the early developments back in the late nineties. Some of you may remember such atrocities such as Microsoft’s Frontpage, which back then was nothing more than a very simple WYSIWYG editor with FTP integration.… Read more
The blog you read right now is based on WordPress.
I quite like WordPress. In fact I’ve grown fond of it over the years. While i had an aversion to lots of standardized open source CMS (most notably Joomla, Typo3 and Drupal), WordPress was always the one platform that i had highest hopes in.… Read more
Pimp my Prompt
Becoming a UNIX ninja was always a bit of an ambition of mine. Though i’d never consider myself a hacker, “non-computer-people” often call me that.
They all go like: “C’mon, you’re a hacker, you can do this!” or “I heard you’re so good with computers, you must be a little bit of a hacker!” – call me names, but i sometimes really love to show off a bit when my Terminal is up and i could throw some commands at it and the console would spit out lines that no mortal man would ever understand, thus staring at me in awe, thinking of me as some sorts of IT god when actually i was just pulling a commit.… Read more
Swiss Pork Sausage with Cheese and Bacon
Today, i finally found the time to do a little recipe blogpost as i announced in the “about” section a while now.
I admit, it’s a bit of a cheap one, since i did not intentially cook this meal specifically for this blog, but i guess you have to start at some point, so here goes, the “Epic Schüblig”.… Read more
In one of my previous blog posts, i covered how to use Zend Framework in combination with an Image Processing Library to achieve flexible and dynamic image resizing possibilities. I briefly mentioned the use of Zend Frameworks Routing System in order to also create nice URLs for such dynamically generated Images.… Read more
