Prefixer saves my day

blog • May 11, 2011

I use my android phone for both private calls and calls to customers, sometimes when calling customers you just don’t want them to know your number.

This is where prefixer comes in and saves my day!

Irssibook

blog • Dec 9, 2008

I had a script, this script updated my facebook status from within irssi by using a POST request to the facebook main site. Unfortunately this does not work anymore. Partly because this style of scripting is against the facebook TOS(Terms of Service). As I wanted to continue to be able to update my facebook status from within irssi, but also be compliant to the facebook TOS i decided to create a script that uses the facebook API.

Buiten het feit dat mijn GPS me radicaal verkeerd stuurde en dat we daarmee waarschijnlijk de eerste paar zinnetjes hebben gemist was het een schitterende show. Als er mensen zijn die zouden twijfelen om hem ooit te gaan bekijken: niet twijfelen, zeker kijken! Als je wel tegen wat grofheid kan en voor zijn soort (recht voor de rape) humor bent is het zeker een aanrader.
