New sister!

Well, life is sometimes interesting. I got contacted about two years ago, by a woman that suspected that we were siblings (half). We started a conversation, did some gene testing (through MyHeritage) and confirmed that I was her elder half-brother (on our fathers side) by two months! Of course, the Swedish courts had already pronounced that in 1963, but we were not aware of each other.

Bye bye TietoEVRY and welcome CGI!

After nearly fourteen years, I decided to change my workplace from TietoEVRY (and their two previous names: TietoEnator and Tieto) and walk over to the Canadian Outsourcerer and Consultant company CGI!

Differences Between Programmers

The difference between a great programmer and a person who thinks him-/herself a great programmer:

Playing with PyLucid and Bitching About Plone

After being extremely frustrated with trying to follow instructions and get tinyMCE working with the Django-CMS (equivalent to Plone's kupu-integration), I decided to call it quits for now. Maybe Django-CMS is the best thing since sliced bread, but if I can't get something basic like this to work, then it has to mature a bit more.

Experimenting with Django-CMS...

... and understanding why I like Plone so much (even if I sometimes find it inexplicable). Install Zope, install Plone, add a plone site in zope and voila, you have a working site, including a number of advanced types and JavaScript integration and editing. And all this without even having to edit a number of config-files and understand why the examples doesn't work or hacking the HTTP-server to death or struggling to understand why you need something for development and something else for production.
