CS coaching

Who of you is able to teach me the basics of computer science? And with basics, I mean everything from the beginning. And when I say beginning, I mean the absolute basics!
Everything else (salary) we can sort out on the phone.
So please call me at ...

Das Keyboard

Last week, I ordered Das Keyboard from Get Digital. Today the order arrived. Typing feels very nice on that keyboard, although the constant clicking will drive my colleague in the same office nuts! ;-)

My tax euros at work.

The german government tried to persuade its citizens to file their tax declaration electonically by providing a free (as in beer) windows application. It's called Elster, which is german for Magpie, a bird that at least in german folklore, is said to be quite thievish. Now, I installed that application to finally file my 2005 tax returns. And I'm prepared for the worst, because the german government is known for it's phenomenal failure in all its software projects. And my confidence in their incompetence was not disappointed, the dialog box above tells you that they were not able to make the program work without administrative rights. That's especially funny because -at least as a merchant who also can use that program- you are required by law to abide to basic security practices on your computers.

Again, trainstation at night.

After watching this space for a while you will inevitable come to the conclusion that I really like taking photos at our trainstation. Please let me affirm this suspicion with this post.

Playing with the layout.

 I'm trying to put my non-existing CSS skills to use... I hope you like the baby-blue background.
