Blog moved…

Bloggingabout.net has moved from Community Server to WordPress. One of the changes that comes along with this is that the URL of my blog has changed too. I went from bloggingabout.net/blogs/rick to rick.bloggingabout.net. Thanks to Dennis for putting in a lot of time and effort to migrate BloggingAbout to our new WordPress environment. I’m looking …

(Re)surface

I know it has been a while since my last post, but I’m about to resurface! I’ve played in a musical the entire month of December and (because of that) we were busy getting our company up and running again in the new year. So now I’ll be developing more and I’ll probably have more …

I will return…

I’ve been busy the last couple of weeks. Between (the announcements at) all the congresses to follow like PDC and Tech·Ed, all the projects to do, the rehearsal for the musical I’m in in December (Dutch) and the start of our new company (Dutch), I didn’t have a lot of time to blog… Since we …

The absolute minimum every software developer …

One of the posts that is being read quite frequently over here is HOWTO: Encode a password using MD5 in C# (or: howto calculate the MD5 hash for a string). One of the (many) reactions to that post was from one Simucal, stating: Also, to the original poster, Rick van den Bosch… shame on you …

Rick van den Bosch .net – part II

It’s been a while because I’ve been so busy lately, but the next (technical) step for my personal  website is now online. When browsing to http://rickvandenbosch.net/blog/, the content of my blog here is displayed sort of mirrored over there. I used an OpenSource RSS component to read my private rss feed from blogging about, and …

Short personal update – March 2008

This weekend we got back from a skiing trip we went on with the school my girlfriend works at. We had a great time! The kids were great, and so were the teachers and the Huski people who were there to teach the kids how to ski and snowboard. If they need an extra pair of …

So that’s part 1: www.rickvandenbosch.net is now online. There’s nothing to be found over there yet, but the domain has been delivered.

Blogging @ Almere

Today was the first of two introduction days at Avanade. Maybe you missed it, but I started there today. And that’s why I’m writing this blogpost from a hotel in Almere, using my new Avanade laptop. 😉I’m sure there will be lots of stuff to blog about, so stay tuned for more…

Which blog software to use …

I’m thinking of hosting a blog myself. Most important reason would be that bloggingabout.net doesn’t allow some stuff like scripts, embedding flash and links to things like the ‘connect with me’ button and so on. Which is completely understandable by the way. What I’m not sure about is which software to use. Do you guys …

Spam frenzy

The last two weeks or so, my blog has been hit by a wave of comment spam. Every morning there are 20-something comments like ‘Nice’ or ‘Sorry :(‘ to be deleted. Fairly pointless posts… The only link they contain seems to be in the URL field, and not in the message like they used to. …

Blog silence – Is blogging getting less popular?

Sure, we’re still a bit in the holiday season. But the last few months it seems to get quieter in the [wikipedia:blogosphere], and specifically the technical part of it. Maybe I’m just imagining it, but it feels like blogging isn’t as popular as it used to be. How are you guys experiencing this?
